We really enjoyed our three days at Kubu Carik. The property is spectacular, with a great view, beautiful gardens, and refreshing pool. The owner, Otto, is a wealth of interesting information about Indonesia, as he has lived here nearly all his life and seen it go through many changes. He was kind enough to take us over to Tirta Gangaa... More

Kubu Carik is a homestay in the heart of rural eastern Bali. The advantage of this is that it is isolated, with stunning views over rice fields, where you can walk for miles and get a feel for local life. Despite its isolation, if you have a car or motor bike, it is also fairly close to other major destinations,... More

Fantastic place to stay to escape the tourist trap of Kuta and relax among the rice fields. We enjoy wonderful hospitality from Otto and he was so helpful to help us arrange transport over to Gili Trawangan, especially as all boats to Lombok had been cancelled. The staff are lovely and after two weeks travelling around Bali and Lombok I... More

i normally avoid the usual 5 star establishments. Most are expensive, look the same, feel the same, and come with no surprises. Kubu Carik on the other hand, is my latest 'Great Find'. Nestled in some remote area near the Tirtagangga Water Palace in the Karangesem area of eastern Bali, Kubu Carik is adventure, charm and magic in abundance! Glorious,... More

We stayed 2 nights and would have loved to stay more. Claudia, Kadek and the staff are great, the view is incredible and the food, excellent. Ask the staff to give you a tour in the rice fields to go to the Tirtagangga Palace, it is a delight to walk through these rice fields.

This place is fabulous and if you are visiting the eastern part of Bali and the water palaces at Tirtagganga in particular, it's the only place to stay. The owner, Claudia Ionker and her charming staff are very kind and welcoming and the food...oh the FOOD! The setting of the property high on the hillside is magnificent with breathtaking views...

Wow. All the other reviewers are right in giving Kubu Carik an 'excellent' review. What a little gem! We had such an amazing time here, and absolutely unique during our 4 weeks in Java and Bali. This place is so incredibly authentic, homely and welcoming. And the views are just stunning. Something I have never seen before and will never... More

So glad you liked your stay with us! Again it was sad to see such wonderful guests go. I hope that the rest of your stay in Bali was pleasant and that you will come see us again in paradise soon. We look forward to welcoming you or anyone you think would like it on our mountain. Claudia More

We had an amazing experience at Kubu Carik. The views of rice paddies from our room and outdoor dining area were breathtaking! Our host Claudia was incredibly kind and welcoming, inviting us to eat with her and organising a guided walking trek for us through the local rice paddies that was unforgettable. Not to be missed, a highlight of our... More

Kubu Carik is not a regular hotel, just 2 bungalows in a personal property. The most important thing is to get directions to get there. We drove our own car and coudn't contact Claudia, the owner, who was on a trip, so it was a challenge to find the place! (we drove for a couple hours and finally found it... More

The problem with the dogs has been fixed. A problem common in Bali is that dogs are seldom taken care of. The dogs are regularly checked by a vet. More
