The island of Bali, like most of the islands of the Indonesian archipelago, is a renowned tourist destination for peace and tranquillity amidst spectacular scenery and legendary culture. The Moon Villas compound, located in the village of Uma Alas---Balinese words meaning “rice” and “forest”---is one of the most sought after areas in Bali. The area is home to some of the most luxurious private villas on the island and is situated just twenty minutes from the Bali International Airport and thirty minutes from some of the best golf courses in Asia.
Still, for the most part undeveloped, this relaxed, remote setting offers the double attraction of being close to everything while also offering visitors a privileged insight into the traditions of rural Bali. The local population makes a living from fishing and farming. Ducks are herded through the rice fields. Sounds of wild game travel on the breeze. Legian Beach with its sweeping, panoramic coastline---not to mention its world-class surf breaks---is located fifteen minutes away. Trendy Seminyak, five minutes away, offers a wide choice of international restaurants, chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas, and elegant shops.
The villa resort was completed in 2007 and recently remodelled. The design is a mix of Balinese and modern style, offering a setting that fits into the surrounding rice fields and tropical fauna. Painted in warm earthy colors the villas are set among walkways, surrounded by lush green foliage. Each villa has its own covered veranda overlooking the pool and garden. The veranda is furnished with lounge seating, the ideal spot for a coffee break or to surf the Web.
The pool lies in front of the main Pavilion with a separate Jacuzzi. A massage pavilion on one side of the pool is filled with thick cotton daybeds and cushions, the perfect setting for afternoon massages, reading, and naps.
Fragrant frangipani trees, palms, heliconia, lotus, lilies, gardenia, papyrus, and cattails fill the 600 square meter garden. Various walkways pass by ponds with fountains, containing koi. Cages with tropical birds hang from the frangipani trees filling the mornings and afternoons with their beautiful song. Two monkeys, Greco and his companion Sabrina, are living in the garden where they are an endless source of amusement.
Moon Villas are fully serviced by an experienced manager. He oversees the staff and is available to assist and perform concierge duties for the guests. The villa staff is responsible for the housekeeping and providing wait service around the pool and the Pavilion. A security guard patrols the grounds and guards the entrance from dusk until dawn.

The bed is outfitted with 500 thread count cotton linens, duvet cover and oversized pillows, all in brilliant white. Accessories, table lamps and artwork create a distinctive look in their confluence.
