Stayed in Garuda room for 5 nights in July. We loved this hotel! The setting is very special and peaceful. Each room is very spacious and has a private veranda overlooking the paddy fields where breakfast can be served each morning. Our bathroom was really big with a bath and an outdoor shower which was nice although the pressure not... More

This is not your standard 4 star hotel. It is much better! The beauty of the people and the property are the reasons to stay here. If you want modern, look elsewhere. But if you want to feel like you have been to Bali, this is the place for you. Our upstairs room had a spacious balcony that overlooked the... More

We love the Alam properties and we're making our way through them; we stayed at 2 this time. They are just gorgeous with stunning breakfasts served wherever you'd like to eat them, afternoon tea supplied and coffee and tea all day. I love that they have a large water dispenser to refill your water bottles and that they don't serve... More

After reading quite a few reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to email Alam Jiwa a week before my arrival in Bali to see if I could book a room. (You cannot book this hotel online.) I received a response back within a few hours. Sadly, I couldn't stay in the same room for all 3 nights. I stayed in Ganesa... More

Stayed here with extended family. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfasts are yum. The walk through the forest to Ubud is lovely. The rooms are gorgeous, sitting out on the daybed looking over the rice paddies with water trickling past and a cool breeze blowing is hard to leave.

Beautiful stay at alam jiwa. Great staff, gorgeous rooms overlooking rice fields and volcanoes. What a exceptional experience. I highly recommend this hidden gem. They offer free rides into and back from ubud at any time, excellent breakfasts and afternoon tea with homemade cakes.

We had a family reunion here. Stayed at the 2 bedroom suite. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Delightful breakfasts were served. the woodwork in the rooms, the open air bathroom, the paddy fields overlooking the balcony....it was simply superb. Very traditional, located right next to the monkey forest. And they have a superb spa.

We had a wonderful stay at Alam Jiwa… Only issue was the transportation, even though they are always willing to ferry you back and forth to Ubud, it is a nuisance at some point. If you are travelling with people of lowered mobility, walking thru the Monkey Forest is complicated. We stayed at Cendrawasih for 2 night, and we missed... More

From beginning to end we just loved staying here. Fantastic service, room, food and location. We loved our room Jataya and it was perfect for our family of 4. We will be back. We also stayed at Alam Shanti and loved it.

This was our first time to Alam Jiwa. We had previously stayed at Alam Gili which we loved. We were picked up at the airport and transported to our mountain oasis. We stayed in the Hanoman room overlooking the rice paddy fields. Just amazing. It is located in the village of Nyuh Kuning, on the other side of the Monkey... More
