Villa Kelusa is a bewitching, four-building compound on an isolated 3.1 hectares in Bali’s true, vibrant, beating heart. At jungle’s edge, atop a vast amphitheater of rice paddies cascading down into the deep gorge of the holy Pakuseba River, and with a panoramic view of a distant ridge of nine ancient volcanoes, the lovely and ultra-private Villa Kelusa is nestled in the Balinese foothills beneath the tiny, traditional village of Kelusa.
While practically untouched by the modern world, Kelusa is also a surprisingly few minutes’ drives down the hill to Ubud, a huge, bustling village which, with its world-renowned restaurants, dance performances, art galleries, and nearby 5-star hotels, is considered to be the cultural center of Bali. Villa Kelusa blends 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. To the north, Pondok Sapi is named after the ubiquitous thatched cow sheds that dot the jungles and shelter the farmers in their rice terraces. It was designed as the private residence of a retired American writer and television journalist. Three separate buildings make up Pondok Sapi: a glass studio with two spacious en-suite master bedrooms and a library; a large open-air living pavilion with a gourmet kitchen and a media room which can be converted into a third luxury bedroom; and a private entertainment cabana with infinity pool and lounge area.
Pondok Surya, or Sunset House, was also designed with open, panoramic rice paddies, jungle, and mountains. It has a large, second-story in-suite master bedroom with a wrap-around terrace, guest bedroom, and smaller kitchen. There is also another infinity pool that runs through the house, separating the living and entertainment areas.
