I was at Jati Home Stay in 1988 for the first time, last time in 2002.
.... A while ago yes .... unfortunately :-) !!!
I visited Bali a dozen of times in that time frame, either alone or with family, and my/our stay at Jati have always been within the pure highlights of each trip to Bali.
I suggested Jatis to several friends. They all spent great time at the Home Stay and the quality/price ratio is incredible.
There is a unique and real Balinese atmosphere there and we simply felt at home there, stunning at the beautiful paintings of Jati, his brother and his nephew. Each one living and working there and each one with his own style, colors and fascination.
It was always beautiful to greet the several families living in the compound in the Morning and than again in the afternoon, or in the evening when we came "back home" to the cozy and quiet rooms, with the extremley relaxing terracces overlooking the small peaceful creek and the rice paddies, with the roofs of Ubud on the othre side of a tiny valley covered with green and colored birds.
Great to wake up with the first lights in the morning and to sit outside on the terrace enjoying the paddy field sight, the flowers of the frangipani and the first freshly brewed tea, while observing the soft and completely silent movements of an old lady distributing the small morning offerings on the tiny temples and silently praying at each of them.
Many beautiful remembers of my favourite location in Ubud and I hear Jati has turned the old duplex bungalow into a small restaurant and a place where he gives painting lessons.
Jati's life has been dedicated to painting and together with his past uncle Bedil his works are some of the mostly recognized in Bali and abroad, where he has been several times to exhibit them, or to give lessons on Balinese painting historical background and techniques.
Some of his paintings can be appreciated at the Neka Museum in Ubud.
Great artist, great person with a huge heart! I wish I will be able again to go back to Bali and for sure I won't miss an important part of my trip to be spent at Jati's !
