Villa Awang Awang – Ubud




Built in 2005 by Balinese architect Ir. Ida Bagus Wiadnyana, the style is calming and under-stated, ensuring that nothing detracts from the extraordinary view. The restful decor comprises unique pieces of antique furniture from Bali, Java and Lombok, local artwork, traditional weavings, carvings, statues and antique shadow puppets.

Integrated into the natural contours of the steep-sided river gorge, the house is cooled by ceiling fans and cross breezes from the river. The three-storey building is entered on the top floor.



There are 5 bedrooms; three on the upper floor and two on the middle floor. All are accessed by antique Javanese doors and are fan-cooled as you will have no need for air-conditioning in these refreshingly cool highland climes. One bedroom on the middle-level is air-conditioned for  heat sensitive guests.
The delightfully spacious, high-roofed master bedroom on the upper floor is furnished with a queen-sized bed crafted from old teakwood, as well as an antique Javanese batik table and a glass-fronted cabinet of books. The ensuite marble bathroom is accessed via a walk-through dressing room and is fitted with a luxurious terrazzo corner soaking tub for two. A door opens to a open-air shower deck, bordered by walls that are high enough for privacy yet low enough at the front to enjoy the view. One wall is decorated with a hand-carved frieze depicting Dewi Sri, the rice goddess, while carved panels in the front wall showcase lotus flower motifs and allow a glimpse of the rainforest . Glass doors at the front of the bedroom open onto the terrace where there is a cushioned daybed for relaxing. This is a serene spot for enjoying the glorious valley view.

The second bedroom on the upper floor is furnished with an antique Javanese queen-sized bed, while the third bedroom contains a pair of twin beds. A large marble bathroom with a deep terrazzo soaking tub, an outdoor shower and a double vanity is shared between these two bedrooms and accessible from both. The semi-circular marble shower deck is bounded by high walls for privacy, with a rainshower open to the sky. The queen room is fitted with glass doors that open to the terrace and the river gorge at the front.

The middle level presents two more bedrooms, positioned on either side of the main dining area. Both are furnished with queen beds and wardrobes. One bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to the terrace and an ensuite indoor bathroom with a terrazzo bathtub and handheld shower. The other bedroom has a window overlooking the view and an ensuite bathroom with a corner soaking tub, as well as a big open-air shower deck with bathing goddesses carved into a stone panel.
