We thought the Alam Jiwa was a lovely hotel peacefully situated on the outside of Ubud. It was a good half an hour walk to the centre of Ubud but the hotel offered a free shuttle service in conjunction with its sister hotels. We did however have to wait quite a while sometimes for the shuttle. Not sure this is... More

We stayed at Alam Jiwa for 6 nights over the New Year period to celebrate two significant birthdays. This was our second stay at Jiwa and we have also stayed at Shanti and Indah in the past. Our group of 13 was spread out in 7 rooms. All the rooms are large and beautifully decorated with impressive bathrooms-some with larger... More

From the moment we checked in until we left 10 days later, we felt very well cared for at Alam Jiwa. If we could give it 4.5 stars we would. The service here is outstanding and Ayu deserves a great deal of credit for the wonderful way she and the rest of the staff take care of the guests. We... More

So sorry to leave this hotel after staying for 5 nights. It was one of the most serene, tranquil place I have ever had the pleasure of staying. It's not luxurious but very comfortable, has such a beautiful "Balinese" feel to it. The staff were kind, friendly and very helpful. It was so restful I could have stayed happily for... More

very nice service, nice room with quite good view. The girl named Ayu is very helpful to book a cooking class for us. Their breakfast is amazing!!!! Love it as well as the afternoon tea. They also provide transport service to anywhere in Ubud Centre. Will recommend everyone if they are going to Ubud

It was only three nights and two days, but what an experience. This small elegant hotel is perfect, quiet and the place to be in Ubud. It's only a short walk down a driveway to restaurants, the Monkey Forest and shopping. Breakfast (in your room or in the breakfast area) is included, as is afternoon tea. On the first night,...

My new hubby (we just returned from our honeymoon in Bali) and I stayed in Alam Jiwah for 3 nights. This hotel is really the best we have had in 2 weeks' time in Bali. The service there is second to none. As an example: if you are on site in the afternoon (I can't remember the times) you can... More

Quite honestly we were not sure what to expect at AJ. We thought that for the price we wouldn't get much but we were wrong. Look, AJ is not 5 star but what it lacks in cool bars and restaurants it makes up with great staff, views, quiet, huge rooms and a willingness to please. Our room was on the... More

The staff here are absolutely excellent, great attention to detail, incredibly friendly and helpful. A great location, amongst the rice fields , walking distance to the shopping strip but very peaceful, also with shuttle service offered. Beautiful rooms and surroundings, the whole family loved all the buildings and furnishings. Would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful very friendly stay.

We stayed here for about two weeks back in 2001 and it was absolutely amazing. Each room was wonderfully unique and the service was second to none. A perfect place to stay if you're looking to absorb the Balinese culture. Great location, as well.
