Villa Sati
Enveloped deep within rural Bali, yet only ten minutes drive from the cultural town of Ubud, Villa Sati appears to float upon the encompassing rice fields. This one-bedroom hideaway, complete with plunge pool, can be rented independently, or as an annex to the neighbouring Villa Vajra. Villa Sati is comprised of two thatched roof pavilions set within a courtyard and linked by a pool deck. The main pavilion incorporates two living areas on two levels, and features an abundance of teakwood and glass. With glass walls on three sides, it presents stunning views of the rice fields, affording guests the opportunity to witness time-honoured methods of agriculture. The area is a birdwatchers paradise and various trails offer enjoyable walks. Caring staff with a profound knowledge of the locale will fulfil their duties with enthusiasm and smiles, and prepare some delightful meals. The villa has been lovingly furnished by the owners with custom designed furniture.

Living & Dining Room
The air-conditioned, downstairs living and dining room is characterised by a warm teakwood floor and contemporary furniture, including a sofa and two chairs. Small bronze Buddha statues and artefacts hint at the serene ambience of the villa, and a desk and chair overlook the rice fields. Guests with their own laptop computers will be able to make use of the WiFi wireless Internet connection, and will be inspired by the awesome view while writing e-mails to the folks back home. There is also an IDD telephone, fax and copier. A teak unit with drawers and shelves houses a LCD multi-channel cable TV, a DVD player and quality sound system. There is a library of DVDs so that guests can enjoy a wide selection of  movies. The rustic dining table is tucked next to a window and complemented by a cushioned bench seat.

Kitchen
An opaque glass door slides open to reveal a small, yet well-equipped, kitchen. Neatly tucked away, this is where the cook will prepare delicious meals. There is even the thoughtful provision of a separate staff entrance to ensure that the guests are not disturbed.

Upstairs Sitting Room
A teak staircase leads from the downstairs living room to a cosy, air-conditioned upstairs sitting room positioned on a timber-floored mezzanine. The room features glass windows on three sides, including one wall of glass that can be fully opened to create an open air experience.  Every need has been considered with the inclusion of a fly screen. Guests will delight in the use of the telescope, positioned to magnify the view of the beautiful rural landscape and the lush vegetation that lines the nearby river valley. The sitting room is furnished with two deeply cushioned sofas, which can be converted into a double bed for extra guests, if required. There is also another desk and chair, a cupboard and a coffee table.

Halfway down the staircase is a guest bathroom complete with rainshower, washbasin and toilet.

Bedroom & en-suite Bathroom
The self-contained bedroom and en-suite bathroom is a single storey pavilion, located poolside, just across the courtyard. Sliding glass doors lead from the pool deck into the spacious air-conditioned bedroom, complete with a teak floor and a soaring thatched roof. There is also a ceiling fan, which creates a pleasant breeze on the occasions when guests elect to leave the doors open. The room is furnished with a canopied queen-size bed, fitted wardrobes, bedside tables, and cushioned water-hyacinth chairs. The attractive dcor features a deep purple wall behind the bed, complemented by cream walls on two sides and some shimmering artwork. Stereo speakers have been installed in the roof, the sound system is located in the living pavilion but music can be controlled in the bedroom via a remote device. A safe deposit box is positioned in the wardrobe.

The adjoining open-air bathroom is a study in romance, dominated by an oversized Jacuzzi bathtub, resting beneath a pergola dripping in cascading thunbergia flowers. This delightful walled garden bathroom is totally private, and features a dark grey granite floor, a floating vanity unit in teak and terrazzo fitted with shelves and drawers, and a sculptured river-stone washbasin. There is also a glass shower cubicle housing a tropical rainshower, and a toilet positioned in an alcove. Colourful artwork and a bamboo and orchid garden complete the picture

Plunge Pool and Courtyard
The 6.2 x 3.3 metre plunge pool is 1.3 metres in depth. It is fed by a waterfall cascading over a random rock wall, thereby ensuring that guests will always enjoy the tranquil sound of running water. Lined with cornflower-blue tiles, it is flanked on two sides by a timber deck, and guarded by a Buddha head stone-carving on the wall. The deck is furnished with two sunbeds. In the far corner of the sunny paved courtyard is a table with four chairs, sheltered by a pergola, and ideal for barbeques and alfresco dining.

Location
Villa Sati is located in the quiet traditional village of Sebali in the district of Kaliki, an hour and fifteen minutes drive from Ngurah Rai international airport, and about ten minutes drive from the cultural town of Ubud. This remarkable town is Balis centre for fine arts, dance and music, and the surrounding villages are home to Balis most accomplished painters, dancers, musicians and carvers. It is located 300 metres above sea level in the foothills of the central mountain range; this gives it a fresher, more pleasant climate than the southern coastal regions. The numerous art galleries in Ubud display traditional and modern work; the museums showcase the Islands rich history, and the shops and the market stalls sell handicrafts, jewellery, woodcarvings, textiles, paintings and antiques. There are many, well-presented, cultural performances staged in the town, in particular the Hindu epic, the Ramayana; also the Kecak Dance, the Fire Dance, the Monkey Dance and the Legong Dance. The countryside around Ubud is particularly beautiful, with an abundance of trails offering memorable walks through the peaceful rice fields. The location is convenient for tours all over the island and is only a forty-minute drive from the coast.
