One is heartily welcomed at Villa Umah Shanti after passing verdant rice fields and quaint villages; meandering down a cobbled pathway to the main house where the Mas River Valley also greets with its majestic beauty. A feast for the senses; the ear adjusts to the rushing sounds of the river below and everywhere the eye wanders to be met by an expansive vista of breathtaking beauty.
Only 20 minutes from Ubud, this unique property sits on 2,200 square meters of undulating countryside. Constructed and maintained to exacting standards by a western company, the house consists of three separate levels, three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a study/office and a spacious lounge kitchen area.
The flawless finishes feature terrazzo floors, carved wooden doors and European metalwork. Remarkable design meets lush landscaping, where staircases and gardens are thriving with tropical plants and foliage that quintessentially blend the whole property into the verdant surroundings.
The private guest quarters sits on a higher level and is completely self-contained. The very spacious lounge area overlooking the valley is flanked by folding doors and is perfect for entertaining groups and for large gatherings or simply, just calmly be seated beside the infinity saltwater pool that hugs the cliff edge, and be mesmerized by the surrounding beauty of the lush valley.
The three discernible Queen-sized bedrooms are namely: the Orange room with en-suite bathroom and balcony that opens to a luxuriant garden view, the Purple room that features a study and en-suite shower room as well as private deck that opens to the fresh and cool air of the highlands as well as dramatic views of the valley, and the Yellow room on the lowest level that features the pool and an en-suite bathroom. All bathrooms feature an open plan, enabling optimum lighting and capaciousness, yet retaining a sense of privacy. Aloft in the upper level features the shed and laundry area.
A spacious semi-open dining and living area, furnished with plaited mats, thatch-worked furniture and colorful plush cushions, is where cheers and indulgence come together. The well-appointed kitchen with its steel appliances and granite bench tops satisfies even the most discerning chef.
