Wu Wei is a unique boutique estate located in a jungle setting a short drive from Central Ubud. It is also the World’s first Wisdom Sanctuary. Apsara House is one of the three properties that are located within the overall Wisdom Sanctuary.

The space

The River House is surrounded by tumbling jungle that descends to a sacred river, and is located within Apsara House @ Wu Wei Wisdom Sanctuary. River House @ Wu Wei is a haven of peace, where cicadas hum, and the breezes carry chants from a nearby temple nestled upstream. The pristine surroundings, beautiful design, and sacred atmosphere provide guests with the perfect opportunity to connect deeply with nature and beauty during their stay. Luxuriously furnished; this self-contained house includes a private pool, deck and open-air meditation platform overlooking the Traditional Water Temple. This River House requires access by stairs.

Beautiful place, can not fault it! Our own private pool with the most stunning room and view. Woke up to wildlife every morning including monkeys in the garden watching them from the comfort of your bed. The staff were more than helpful when needed a taxi or asking for anything really. The only thing I would say is be prepared to walk up a lot of stairs but truely worth it! This place is magical and well worth a stay!

Amazing villa with a private pool in the jungle. Staff were very kind and happy. Also on request they would have food delivered in for you. I would recommend a scooter to get into central Ubud. Definetly booking again on our return to Ubud!!

The River House is spectacular. Tucked away down in the river valley, it is completely surrounded by nature. We loved the constant sound of the river moving. We enjoyed excellent massage, and yoga up in the temple among the common areas. The private pool is an extra treat. The staff were extremely gracious and helpful in getting us everything we needed, including reliable drivers into and back out of Ubud town centre. It is a very beautiful place, and we appreciated our time here very much. Thank you!

Beautiful, private setting in the heart of the jungle, surrounded by nature. Luxurious and comfortable. Wonderful private pool. Really relaxing and restorative. Redha is really helpful and attentive and able to arrange activities and transport for you. It is a bit of a drive into central Ubud. The yoga in the temple on the property was particularly special. We really enjoyed our stay. Note though that wifi is not available in the room, food and beverages have to be ordered in from the town and that there are a lot of steps to access the room.

If you are looking for a quiet and tranquil place to relax and find inner peace, this is the perfect place. This home is for you if you dont mind living in the jungle with all of its beautiful creatures. The staff are unbelieavbly courteous and helpful. You will need a way to get to and from town. Taxis and scooters are available. The private pool is incredible and the entire property is stunning!

Magical place in the Jungle. Very kind stuff. Many stairs, but to get in paradise you are absolutely ready to take it. We will come back when we can and recommend it to our friends & family.

This place was the highlight of all great places we stayed at in Bali. Amazing views and in the middle of nature with the sounds of cicade and the river. We saw various monkeys pass and the locals can be seen doing their washing on the opposite side of the river. Note that you need to order food, there are some steps. and there is no wifi - if that is okay for you than prepare for an amazing place in a really nice river house all for you to enjoy.
