“don't know why people give good reviews on this one?!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

we chose ketekung because of all the positive reviews.. which was a mistake, our stay was more or less "ok" if you dont mind a broken bed, a dirty bathroom, and staff that doesnt understand a word english!!! when we arrived there was nobody, and there is also no reception so we had to look for someone in the tiny house beside...and wait..., they wont provide us with a map or information.. we had to go ask at some other hotel and they were so kind to give us a map!! I am pretty sure there is better places to stay in ubud, maybe you should just take a cab here.. without doing an internet reservation first, because there are lots of other nice bungalows in the middle of the ricefields!

My husband and I wanted to get away so much from hectic city life one day and so we went to Ubud – Bali, a remarkable site for those needing peace of mind. There we stayed at Ketekung Bungalow located on Jalan Bisma, not far from where the famous sacred nature reserve ‘Monkey Forest’ and the home of Tjokorda Gede Agung Sukawati (1910-1978) - the last "king" of Ubud, Bali.

I myself actually am the kind of person who tends to get fussy about staying in local small hotels, inns or bungalows, imagining uncomfortable bed and water problems (not to mention about the smell from damp bed and pillow sheets). But when arriving at the bungalow I became speechless and really had nothing to complaint about. I found this traditional Balinese structural type of building very neat, spacious rooms cleanly maintained with cozy king-sized beds. The bathrooms were clean, no leakage nor tabs or hot water problem. And, with a price of (+) US$ 25,-/ room per night, free continental breakfast and free afternoon tea/ coffee served at my wish by local friendly staffs, what more could I ask?!

We spent 3 days on the upper floor during our first visit, overlooking rice paddy fields from the windows and, overwhelming sights of nature from the balcony. While in the evening we heard the sounds of night insects like lullaby to put us to sleep, as morning comes, chirps of early birds and morning quacks of ducks had awaken us.

I’d say, Ketekung Bungalow’s a perfect place to getaway, offering a retreating staying ambient and able to offer us an unforgettable opportunity to unwind ourselves hence made our getaway extraordinary that it became the place we bound to visit time and again, since then!
