The upstairs suite is a self-contained 1 bedroom unit, with private bathroom and shared kitchen. You have your own space and privacy in a traditional Balinese compound, and an open deck leading from the bedroom gives a view out over the treetops.
Escape the crowds and traffic jams in Ubud and stay nearby in a small village on the other side of the Sacred Monkey Forest, a short walk away.
Your one-bedroom flat is on the upstairs floor of the house, with a good sized open deck for yoga, meditation or writing. The flat is self-contained with a separate bathroom with hot shower and Western-style toilet. There is a shared kitchen on the ground floor. The bedroom is lockable for security, with fan cooling and a double bed with mosquito net. Sheets and towels are provided.
The flat is designed for 1-2 people only.
The flat's location inside a Balinese family compound offers good security so you don't need to worry about break-ins or theft, which are on the rise around Ubud.
In Bali, whole extended families live together in small compounds. Their day starts early, usually before dawn, with a mandi, or cold water wash, before cooking all the food for the day. You may hear the ibu’s (or Mums) in the family heading out to the early-morning market on a motorcycle. You'll also hear the dawn chorus of roosters crowing as the village wakes to another day around you. If you're sensitive to noise, you may wish to use earplugs.
Living in a Balinese compound, while generally quiet during the day, involves the noise of families living together. On occasion, people may play radios or you may hear kids practicing flute or gamalan. Be prepared to hear the noise of people and animals around you - remember, you're a guest in their family compound.
As the space is open, sometimes geckos and small lizards will come in, as well as the neighborhood cats. You may also see tropical cockroaches, which are larger than the ones in the West. This is normal in Bali and its impossible to keep all the animal life out. The geckos are harmless.
Disponible para huéspedes
Bread, jam and butter, fruit and eggs, tea and coffee are provided for you to make breakfast your first few days. There are several local shops and a morning market within a few minutes walk of the flat.
There is a good choice of cafes and restaurants in easy walking distance within the village, including Indonesian, Italian, Indian and Japanese cuisines. The Guest Book also contains a selection of menus from Ubud restaurants for easy home delivery.
A maid will come in three times a week to clean (unless there is a local holiday). Sheets and towels are changed weekly. Please ask if you want them changed more often. She can also take your dirty clothes to a local laundry in the village for an extra charge.
Local travel guides are available for your use.

Otros aspectos destacables
Please remember you are visiting a developing country. This means that many things may not be what you are likely used to at home. Your experience of Bali will be much more positive if you can stay flexible, tolerant, open to new and different experiences and keep a sense of humour.
Please be aware that power blackouts happen on a regular basis in Bali, due to the rapid development. If power goes out, it is usually on again in a few hours, but in rare instances, may be off overnight. Emergency candles and flashlights are provided.
The wifi is 'Bali speed' - that is, it may slow down without warning. If you need dedicated wifi for working, HUBUD shared working space with high speed internet is a 20 minute walk through the Monkey Forest.
Guests need to speak English or Indonesian, otherwise, it's just too hard too communicate!
Most people in the compound are asleep by 9 pm, so we ask that you be quiet after this time.
Smoking is allowed outside only.
Absolutely no illegal drugs allowed. You risk the death penalty under Indonesian law. Any illegal drug usage will result in your being asked to leave the house with no refund.
No pets allowed.
