Welcome to Hartland


Welcome to Hartland


“Hartland is a seamless transition between indoors, outdoors, and beyond... I cannot recommend it highly enough.”

Hartland Estate, nestled into the slopes of Ubud’s scenic Sayan Ridge, overlooking a wide tapestry of rice paddies bordering the Ayung River, is Bali’s latest work of art. A thoughtfully conceived and elegantly executed Luxury Bali Retreat, Hartland is only a 7 minute drive from the center of Ubud.

One of the most stunning Sayan Valley views greets you upon arrival at this gorgeous newly completed Ubud private vacation villa. Carefully set into the landscape around the 6,200 square meter Estate, are five beautifully furnished air-conditioned bedroom suites, all created with a natural design befitting its stunning Bali location. 

Each Suite has its own private space and extensive garden and decks surrounding it. Three Suites are made from reclaimed teak wood houses – a Joglo, an Old Java House and a Gladag. Each grass–roofed Suite features a spacious double bedroom, luxurious bathroom and a large wooden deck with an outdoor lounging area and open spaces for early morning yoga or meditation.

Soulless 2 Movie

February 2015

Hartland Estate was a premium location while shooting Soulless 2 Movie in Bali.




 The moment you walk through the gate into HARTLAND you enter into the realm of paradise. Bud Hart has created the most wonderful garden of eden to relax, renew, heal, and enjoy. Every element considered, from the location, to the views of unspoiled natural beauty; staff that feels more like family than ‘help'; Nyoman’s heart-full and healthful cooking to nourish the body and soul; accommodations that feel down home, yet every comfort is provided… and THE POOL! Probably the most beautiful pool I have ever seen or had the pleasure of enjoying 5-6 times a day.

I challenge anyone to find a more personal, more luxurious, more soulful place to spend your time in Bali. HARTLAND = HEARTLAND….

–Eric Smith, San Francisco

“This is an amazing place with a totality to it. It's complete and ticks off utter satisfaction boxes. It has a stunning location, the design of the three homes on the estate is gracious and in sync with nature. The staff is absolutely wonderful and the food had me scrambling to write down the menu's and exact way of cooking it. The cooks turned even the humble omelet & bacon into a delight! This has been the most relaxing holidays I've ever had – thanks to our stay at Hartland.

There have been so many 'highs' at this place. Having wonderful breakfasts with stunning views, swimming in a gorgeous pool and watching the birds having a gala at the pool edge, walking up, down and across the estate examining every minute detail that's been implemented to perfection, having romantic tub time with lovely views from the bathroom, cozy-ing up on the plush sofa on the verandah with a good book... I could go on and on.

This place calls for just hanging out and relaxing. We went out often – on trips to Ubud, the Green Village, the rice terraces, etc. Finding our way around with well sketched maps by the extremely helpful manager. We saw some lovely spots in Ubud, but it was always with the greatest pleasure that we returned back to Hartland. Yes, it would be utterly butterfly delightful if we can make it back there... On the more practical note, take the tips/suggestions from the manager as they are most helpful. If you can, drive around with a two wheeler. A massage arranged by the manager in your cottage is quite a bit better than going out some place for it. Try the veggie lasagna & the orange cake done by the cooks. Also don't miss the satay's and the chocolate cake!”

“We found the Estate spectacular with its 3 Balinese wooden houses. They are so tasteful, charming and well integrated in the beautiful garden/nature of the villa. The view is difficult to describe with words… we enjoyed it every minute. No matter where you were in the villa, you were exposed to this calming, exuberant view. The staff was so friendly, warm, flexible and dedicated. In addition, the management of the villa, Wayan, organized for us every single activity which was very convenient. We loved the food so much that we hardly went to restaurants in the 10 days we stayed there. The kids had a great time thanks to the enormous pool, the good food and the wifi.
If we come back to Bali, we will definitely try to stay here again.”

“We’ve been staying at luxury homes and hotels in Bali for nearly five years and staying at Hartland was the pinnacle. The most breathtaking view in central Bali with beautiful staff and delicious cuisine. Cherish your stay, we will forever.”

“Hartland is a place full of heart on a very soulful land. I was mesmerized by the beauty of the Villa and the landscape… it is sophisticated in the most simple of ways. The villa is a haven of grace and poetic taste, it oozes with love and serenity. This is not all. The wonderful caretakers of the villa made our stay so enjoyable. We felt we were among family. They catered to everything we needed always with a smile and superb positivity; they really made us feel welcome. Hartland is a truly breath-taking haven where goodness meets soulfulness.”

“We want to thank you very much for creating such a beautiful environment that you share with others! Everything about Hartland is majestic. The staff are beyond lovely and treated us like we were family. The architecture, reclaimed wood and beautiful landscape, which is dotted with orchids, paints a portrait of love and magic.

We spent many happy days here and even celebrated my birthday. The smiles and beautiful, warm hearts of everyone who works here made my birthday even more special.”

“There are few properties in Bali as stylish and delightful as Bud Hart's estate near Ubud, and the view is sublime. Set in a garden that extends along the ridge above the Ayung River, the main villa and attendant guest cottages, each offer wonderful views, while a network of landscaped pathways invite exploration. This to us is Bali heaven!”

“Hartland is definitely one of the most gorgeous homes we’ve ever experienced. The views are stunning, the staff warm and professional, and the food superb. It’s both rustic and luxurious, warm and unpretentious in it’s beauty. We rarely ever felt like leaving except to go on walks exploring the surrounding river  valley and rice paddies. Nyoman’s cooking class was a highlight. The pool is absolutely stunning. Our three week stay was one of the most extraordinary experiences we’ve ever had.”

“One of the great bathrooms of the world revealed itself down a castle like staircase with a rain shower over a colossal boulder that would make giants jealous.”

“My stay at Hartland was extraordinary. It is a place of simplicity and restraint where you are inspired to meditate on the wonders of nature. The architecture is authentically local Indonesian, wooden Javanese houses reassembled on site, brilliantly nestled into the landscape, congruous with the remarkable surroundings. The interiors have a sophisticated aesthetic; an earthy organic style created from meticulously hand crafted reclaimed iron wood, brushed with romantic and contemporary elements. Outstanding! The service was excellent, the staff most helpful when needed yet invisible at other times, the location only 10 minutes drive to the centre of Ubud but why would you ever want to leave... the meals served were exceptional, both Balinese and western cuisine. Hartland is a seamless transition between indoors, outdoors and beyond... I cannot recommend it highly enough.”

“If heaven on earth can possibly exist this is it.  Perched on a ridge overlooking the Sayan River the views of the river and rice paddies below and the distant mountains are unencumbered by any human intrusion. You are immersed in the splendid habitat of exotic Bali and it is a religious experience. The accommodations are rustic chic combining the best of traditional Balinese construction and modern convenience with no detail being overlooked. It is a sanctuary that was obviously created with utmost respect for the surroundings... a magical place with very special people that reflect the best of Balinese culture. If you are anywhere close to Bali and fortunate enough to be able to reserve the Kedewatan residence don't hesitate.  From personal experience I can guarantee that you will want to return again and again.”

“We could not have been in a better place. The layout of the villas were perfect for having guests stay with us for the holidays, something that would have been complicated when staying in a hotel. Your staff was fabulous, they are like a family. Excellent food, loving service and for New year’s eve they organized a huge party. The rice paddy shaped pool is fantastic. Both for swimming 25 meter laps as well as for hanging by the edge overlooking the gorgeous Sayan valley. We spent many evenings under the stars enjoying the peace and quiet of your house.”

–Raoul Witteveen, Holland

“Having been to Bali many, many times and having stayed in many places, I can say that this absolutely magical compound offers the best views I have ever seen in all of Bali, from any home or hotel, bar none.”

–Stefan Sagmeister, NYC

“Fascinating and truly magical! Peaceful , tranquil and pure luxury in the most enchanting surroundings! The staff was amazing! They went out of their way, above and beyond, genuinely and open-armed to accommodate our every want and need. Cuisine unbelievable! An unforgettable experience. We will be back!!!”
