Desa Visesa Ubud offers a quintessentially Balinese experience that captures the essence of village life, allowing guests the opportunity to see and understand what Bali is all about. Guests are greeted in the magnificent entrance pavilion with a blessing ritual and the suites and pool villas are set within lush manicured grounds designed around a Balinese village, which includes a working farm and rice fields, as well as bamboo and thatch pavilions where local children learn traditional dance and performances.
What makes Desa Visesa so special is the access to Bali’s living culture and the chance to experience the island’s unique spiritual life. A consultation with a local Balinese healer is highly recommended; Jro Suami offers remarkably accurate insights and can teach and advise guests. Other healers are also available.
In the resort, both adults and children can learn about permaculture, help plough the fields, make traditional offerings, brew healthy herbal drinks, go trekking, or join classes in yoga, dance, arts and crafts. A delightful spa and an outdoor gym perched at the edge of the rice fields add to the many things guests at Desa Visesa can do.
The accommodation is lavish with modern facilities and butler service available on request. Dining ranges from Warung Tani, where rustic Balinese home fare is served in a simple bamboo structure overlooking the farmland, to the all-day venue Lesung and Lumbung with its authentic Indonesian cuisine and cocktail lounge.
A stay at Desa Visesa Ubud is a luxury experience that honours Bali’s age-old traditions and brings them to the world.
