VILLA ISEH by WHM is the former retreat of the famous German artist Walter Spies who personally spotted the site and in 1937 built his “mountain hut” there.Later his friend, Theo Meier, another famed Swiss artist, expanded the Villa accommodation and lived there till 1980s.Spies was the co-founder of the PitaMaha artists cooperative in Ubud, through which he is credited with training and influencing several local artists of that era that shaped the development of modern art on the island of Bali
“This villa, the view, the staff, the hospitality was all beyond my expectations. Everyone who worked in the villa was kind and went above and beyond to ensure that our comfort and needs were met. This was a relaxing trip for us therefore, we only ate at the resort and by far some of the best Indonesian food ever! Better than major restaurants in Bali. Everything is at the villa, and if you feel like you’re missing something they will go and get it for you. Primawati sent her husband the following day to check on us due to night prayers from the crematorium next door. (This is a rare occurrence) He explained that it was a village leader who had passed, explained the culture and even ensured he was going to speak to them about the inconvenience. It was difficult to fall asleep that night but after the ceremony was done, we had the most restful and amazing stays. Lastly, they even got us a scooter rental for the day so we could go exploring to the nearby village center and Waterfall. The perks on being outskirts we pretty much had the place to ourselves.”

“This place is just amazing and it was the absolute highlight of my trip. Things I particularly loved: - Sidemen is an incredible place to visit We initially booked one night and then decided to stay another night. - Staying in a very stylish house immersed in the rice paddies. There is literally nothing around you (there is only another house next door which is not rented: it is owned by Nina, and she uses it when she comes to Sidemen..You are literally alone in this magical place) - The hospitality and care from Putu, Wayan and Nina herself is just beyond kind (welcome drinks, great breakfast, swimming pool, little souvenirs...and extra care throughout the stay) - The hiking around the property was the best in the morning before breakfast. Cool temples, little towns, walking on the water conduct, lots of green beauty. - The position: from Sidemen (which is a really cool area to explore in itself) you can visit 2 of the best beaches I saw in Bali: Virgin Beach and White Sand Beach. - Sleeping with the big window open and waking up with such an amazing view I will definitely stay here when I come back to Bali. Thank you Nina & Daniel for making our trip unforgettable!”
