When I was looking for a place to stay during my few weeks in Bali, I wanted the best hospitality without separating myself from the energy and culture of the town. The White Villas, in the heart of Ubud, is a beautiful oasis fit for any intrepid traveler that gives you the best of both worlds.
During my stay, I have never felt so well taken care of and so at home. Every morning, complimentary breakfast of your choice is delivered to your door — or even better, your patio. I chose traditional options like nasi goreng paired with fresh local fruit and yogurt, which was always the perfect start to my day. Another great touch is that they have passion fruit growing in the garden that you’re welcome to pick and snack on. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Because there are only three villas on the premisis, the service has loads of personal touches and works around your schedule. The staff would help me choose great tours, like this one, and would take care of arranging all of the transportation. In addition, they would often check in to make sure I was doing well and taking advantage of all the activities and restaurants in downtown Ubud. Because I was traveling alone, they took extra care to make me feel safe and welcome, which I really appreciated.
Often times, friends and family ask where I would like to return to in Asia. While I have seen so many beautiful places, my first answer is always Ubud, and I have to credit the amazing people at The White Villas for making my experience a memorable one! If and when I return to Bali, you can bet your bottom dollar I will be staying in The White Villas again.
hey there! I am loving your recent posts! I also blogged about some tips on how to see the world. Question: What is your number one tip?
here’s what my recent post is all about:
Would love to hear from you!

So glad you are enjoying my latest posts. I’m having a ton of fun putting them together. I checked out your post and think you make some great points about saving and traveling on a budget.
Here are my two cents:
1) Join a travel networking site. ASMALLWORLD is well worth the $120 membership fee when you think about all of the valuable information you’ll be getting from locals!
2) Instead of hostels, look at AirBNB for your housing options. They are still less expensive than most hotels and you get to have the entire apartment or home to yourself!
3) Write down your travel goals. When I was getting ready for my tour around Asia I had post-its around my apartment counting down the days reminding me to save and stay focused.
Hopefully this is helpful!
All the best,
