If you want to simply disconnect from the world and indulge in absolute peace amidst nature, there’s no better place than this secret hidden gem in the lush jungle of Bali.

Villa Bodhi hides deep inside an untouched village known as Desa Bukian and you might walk by it without noticing. To reach this hidden gem, you have to make your way through an almost impossible-to-find alley in Banjar Tinyingan (a smaller administration of the village) before finally reaching the villa.

Of course, the unique hidden location here promises nothing but complete seclusion in nature. You can now leave all your burdens behind and live as free as you wish. Laze in bed all day listening to the chirping birds or choose to have a dip in their infinity pool that overlooks the pristine jungle.

Villa Bodhi is also a great place for those who wish to witness the real side of Bali – one that is untouched by the mass of tourists. The local lifestyle here remains true to its roots and this can be seen from the traditional architecture, daily rituals and the celebration of religious events. You can always ask your villa clerk about upcoming celebrations in the village and if you’re lucky enough you might witness one colourful ceremony!

And if you want to experience authentic cuisine in the village, don’t miss the Nasi Ayam (chicken rice) that is located near the village municipality or Bubur Bali near the primary school (only available from 7 am – 9 am). Both are local delights that are worth queuing for!
