Suara Air villa is situated in a beautiful undisturbed rural environment, named Banjar Melayang, and just ten minutes from the cultural city of Ubud.
Bali has been a tropical Paradise for western visitors since the 1920s. Its varied landscape, with palm fringed sandy beaches, rice paddies tumbling down hillside terraces and soaring volcanoes, is imbued with spiritual significance and forms a part of the rich cultural life of the Balinese people . Six centuries ago, as Islam spread across South East Asia, the last great Hindu dynasty on Java retreated to Bali, with an entourage of scholars, artist and intelligentsia. Bali's fertile agricultural productivity permitted the development of this cultural heritage and resulted in the distinctive art, architecture, music and dances seen today. Festivals, ceremonies, temple processions, dances and other activities take place almost every day and are part of the rich and complexity of Balinese life. Bali is undoubtedly a mass market tourism destination and as such is a great place for a tropical island holiday with great food, entertainment, nightlife and shopping but there is a lot more to see and discover for guests who are seeking more.
Ubud is in the heart of Bali's central region and is a haven for arts, crafts and cultural seekers. Described as being about people, culture, nature, health and arts, it is a bustling town with many galleries, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes as well as being a very spiritual place. Around Ubud are temples, ancient sites and whole villages producing various handicrafts. These arts and crafts are of great interest to tourist but they also support the religious rituals and ceremonies that are so much part of the community. Much of the surrounding country side remains very rural with wonderful scenery to be enjoyed by car, walking or cycling.
