Villa Pondok Surya at Kelusa Villas
Villa Kelusa is an enchanting, four-building compound on an isolated 3.1 hectares (8 acres) in the true, vibrant, beating heart of Bali.
The lovely and ultra-private Villa Kelusa is nestled in the Balinese foothills beneath the very small, traditional village of Kelusa. At jungle’s edge, atop a vast amphitheater of rice paddies cascading down into the deep gorge of the holy Pakuseba River, Villa Kelusa commands a panoramic view of a distant ridge of nine ancient volcanoes. Sitting high on top of the ridge, Villa Kelusa creates a soothing grandstand from which to watch local farmers harvest rice; and the gorge is so vast that on most mornings, clouds and birds drift by below.
While practically untouched by the modern world, Kelusa is also a surprisingly short drive down the hill to Ubud, a very large, bustling village which, with its world-renowned restaurants, dance performances, art galleries and nearby 5-star hotels, is considered the cultural center of Bali.
Villa Kelusa blends together two properties, PONDOK SAPI (the Shed of the Cow) and PONDOK SURYA (Sunset House), which can be rented separately or together. All bedrooms, as well as living and dining areas, have breathtaking views.
In short: If you are seeking the real Bali, the enchanted Bali, the Bali so loved by musicologist Colin McPhee (author of “A House in Bali”), Charlie Chaplin, and the artists Antonio Blanco and Walter Spies… VILLA KELUSA is beckoning you.
Villa Pondok Surya
Pondok Surya, or Sunset House, rests to the South of the main entrance to Villa Kelusa. It was also designed with open, panoramic views of the rice paddies, jungle and mountains. The main floor is designed around a 20-meter infinity lap pool which runs through the center of the house. An interior bridge carved from a single piece of ironwood connects the living and entertainment areas.
Also on the main floor is an enclosed kitchen and beautifully-landscaped outdoor (but private) bathroom. In addition, there is an air-conditioned guest room that can be configured with a king bed or two single beds.
Pondok Surya has a large, air-conditioned, second story in-suite master bedroom with a king bed and a wrap-around terrace. The sliding glass walls open up to bring the outside in. The master bath contains a massive custom bathtub, hand-carved from a single, giant tree, which looks out over the cascading rice fields.
