We found this place by walking around and got extremely lucky! The room were spacious and clean. They all overlooked this beautiful Balinese garden. The breakfast was delicious and all the staff were lovely. Close to everything in Ubud (temples, monkey forest, restaurants, etc). Definitely recommend it!

Me and my family visited ubud and stayed for two nights at mai malu. This hotel is really clean. How they designed that place make you feel at home. They have a really nice garden with fish ponds and some bird cages hanging around. Every morning they serve really good breakfast in front of your room. While having breakfast you... More

The homestay is perfectly located on Goutama street, right in the middle of cute little cafes & restaurants. It's basic but clean, and have AC & hot water, with friendly staff. I would recommend booking it direct to Putu & get almost half the price of what's published on the definitely overpriced online booking sites.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are happy to read you enjoyed your stay. We also thank you for sharing with us that a team member is actually quoting wrong prices and trying to take cash to confirm bookings directly without going via the management. Action shall most defintely be taken. kind regards Citrus Tree Villas Management Team More

..the rooms are sparse and characterless, privacy is very minimal in the rooms at the rear and upstairs. The showers are cold despite being advertised as hot. And under no circumstances do not leave any valuables, esp. cash in your room even if its concealed in you bag.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to read that you did not have a flow of hot water in your room.

When staying in Ubud, give Mai Malu a go. While there we stayed in a double room downstairs and also a twin upstairs, both were very spacious and extremely comfortable. Breakfast we were given a choice of continental, pancakes, omelette and eggs. Mai Malu is on a very central side street, with a lot of resturants within walking distance, the... More

Friendly, comfortable, clean, well situated. What else??? Perfect. We spent 5 days in Mai Malu Homestay. Managed by a friendly and helpful family. They organized day trips, shuttle bus to airport or any activity in the whole island. Recomended 100%.

The rooms are nicely decorated and it is surprisingly quiet for its central location. Fine for a short stay but lacks the Balinese warmth I found elsewhere. Given that it does not have a pool, it's certainly one of the more expensive homestays.

There is only one place for me in Ubud to stay and that is at Mai Malu. For me it was fate when I first entered to the homestay of Putu and her family. I immediately felt home and the good spirits of this place are obvious. You enter and you find home and peace in the middle of Ubud... More
