This was the first stop on our honeymoon trip to Bali. They sent someone to pick us up at the airport, which is about an hour or more away depending on traffic. You have to make sure you confirm your stay 7 days before arrival. The staff was very nice and it felt like they tried to get to know... More

Spent 3 nights in this hotel outside of Ubud. This is a traditional Balinese Hotel, not Western. It is located quite a distance outside the town of Ubud, too long to walk in hot weather. The hotel has a free shuttle service to and from town, but there is usually a 15 to 20 minute wait. The service in the... More

Our Family of 5 stayed in the Cendrawasih Suite at Alam Jiwa for 4 x nights during Nyepi. I cannot begin to describe the Beauty of this Establishment. The views and surroundings are breathtaking. From our 3 x story Balinese building we had views of the Forest, Creek, Rice Fields and 2 x Volcanoes! The sunrises were Amazing. Although Alam... More

This is a very unique boutique hotel in perfect surroundings. Everything about the customer service leaves you smiling and wanting more. We checked in, if you can call it that, no paperwork required here it was incredibly seamless, no nonsense, we were taken straight to our villa following a check in at 1:30am. The staff seemed like they were waiting... More

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
