This four-bedroom villa compound is set in the true heart of Bali, sitting above the sacred Ayung River in Bali’s lush Buahan region.

Puri Naga Toya is a palatial retreat amid green rice fields; with sprawling mountain and river views. Puri Naga Toya also features an extensive library.
The interior is a world away from hotel-style luxury, with a private collection of antiques blended with modern amenities and attention to detail. Its owners have more than two decades experience in luxury hotel management. This is their sanctuary. Stay at Puri Naga Toya and you'll feel like Balinese royalty.
Surely a stay at Villa Puri Naga Toya should be on every curious person's bucket list! This amazingly individual villa reveals a part of Bali that most people never get to see, and with such panache. On the one hand there's the stupendous view; with its different moods one can never tire of it. On the other there's cultural immersion through the Chinoiserie style and collection of antiques. The result is a uniquely rich experience - and a rare treat.
Villa Puri Naga Toya sits above the sacred Ayung River north of Ubud in Bali's scenic Buahan region. The villa's location is one of its highlights: a 180-degree panorama beyond the villa windows provides uninterrupted views across virgin rainforest towards the volcanoes in the distance.
