Overview of the Best Ubud Villas with Private Pool
Ubud’s tourist villas are located both within the town itself but more often than not they are situated in the lush rice paddies and jungle in the vicinity of the town. But usually, they’re only a 10-15 minute drive from the city’s attractions, and this way you get to enjoy the peace and quiet while floating in your private pool.
Booking a villa with private pool in Ubud doesn’t always equate to being expensive. Newer properties are often listed at a reduced price, deals are frequently spotted (especially during the low season) and some of the more simple properties are pitched at travelers on a budget. On the opposite side of the scale, the higher-end villas are practically palatial in what they offer in terms of space, decor, and amenities! My guide covers all budgets and styles so there really is a villa for every traveler.
