We had a perfect stay at Wayans homestay, where we truly felt at home. To summarize: - extremely interesting tour through the Rice fields near Wayans village - we were travelling with my father and our two children, and both Wayan and his wife Nyoman were very accomodating, being it on the tour or regarding the food - food was extremely good, and perfect for our children as well as for us, who like local specialities (see foto). They accommodate both tastes perfectly.

Wayan, his wife and all of his friends and family welcomed me and treated me like one of their own. The accommodation is simple and clean. I stayed in an air-conditioned room with a queen bed, and never had issues with mosquitos (a must for me!). The shared bathroom comes with a hot shower. Some highlights -- the rice field and jungle trek we did one day, learning how to make those beautiful Balinese offerings, getting dressed up in traditional Balinese outfit, every single meal Nyoman cooked up in the kitchen, Agus' company on my day tour to the Bali Art Festival and temples nearby, conversations with Wayan, Nyoman and Agus about their life in their village, the cremation ceremony I got to see first hand. Everything was exceptional! Wayan and his family taught me so much about Balinese culture, and knowledge of their land and jungles. This was an invaluable experience. Not only did I take so much knowledge and many unforgettable memories away, I feel great knowing that Wayan will use the money he makes from the program to better the village community -- help the village kids with school supplies, help renovate old village buildings, etc. I am forever grateful for this experience! Thank you Wayan, Nyoman, and Agus!

Seeking to experience the real Bali in an engaging way, I stayed 3 nights with Wayan Suwendra’s Bali Homestay as a solo traveler. It was the perfect start to my Bali adventure. Wayan met me at my hotel in the airport and drove me to his home in the mountains where I stepped into a beautiful world of family, tradition, faith, community and nature’s beauty. This experience was unique, customized and my host family was genuinely committed to sharing their culture, way of life and country with me. Wayan’s house is open air and immaculate. My bedroom was air conditioned, private, was lockable and my bathroom with shower and Western toilet was just steps away on a well lit path. I didn’t have any issues with mosquitos and there were fresh mosquitos coils in my room and in my bathroom. Meals were stunning, varied, delicious and prepared with my diet requirements (mostly Vegetarian). Bottled water provided. Trekking though the rice fields, visiting the night market, tasting some amazing street food and visiting local sights were terrific, but the best part was spending time at the focal center of Wayan’s home - the family Rice House containing the family dining table. It was my favorite place to absorb stories and knowledge about the Balinese way from Wayan and his family. When it was time to depart, Wayan drove me to my next Bali destination. The perspective and experience of the Bali Homestay was invaluable as I continued to explore other parts of the island on my own and connect with locals and visitors. I highly recommend the Bali Homestay Program where many beautiful and happy memories were created.

My daughter and I spent 5 days with Wayan and his homestay program. He invited us into his home and treated us life family. His wife Nyoman, delighted us with homemade Balinese food. So delicious! Wayan went over the top to immerse us in the Bali way of life. We visited his backyard rice field, 2 temples, the worlds largest rice field and took a ferry over to the island of Java. We climbed Mt. Injan to see the sunrise, went 4 x 4ing in the jungle, saw a sea turtle lay her eggs and we released hatchlings the next day on the beach! Thank you, Wayan for helping to make our trip even more special.

Wayan and Nyoman welcomed us into their family and gave us a peek into the "real" Bali. We arrived in the evening after an easy airport pick-up. Nyoman had dinner waiting for us. It was so special for our family to come together for meals in the rice house. The food was absolutely amazing! The highlight of our entire trip to Bali happened on our second day. We had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend a cremation ceremony. One of the villagers passed away and we were invited to participate. Nyoman and Sriya (spelling?) dressed us properly and we joined in the procession to the field where the cremation took place. As a Westerner I felt like we were intruding but the Balinese people welcomed us and made us feel completely at ease about being there for this special event. This was definitely a bucket-list item for me. We enjoyed walking out into the rice fields for sunrises and sunsets and getting some excellent photo tips from Wayan (he's a great photographer). We loved learning to make offerings and getting dressed in Balinese wedding costumes after dinner one evening. I really appreciate the little things like being able to tweek the day tour plans to suit our interests. I also appreciate the care the family took to give us the perfect amount of "down" time so that we didn't feel like we were invading each others space. The beds were comfortable, the shower was hot, the wifi worked great and the air-conditioning was fantastic after a day in the heat and humidity. We booked this program expecting a hotel/tour experience and ended up making friends for life. Had we just gone to Bali and stayed at a beach resort or Ubud it might have been our last trip (20 hours by plane is a long trip). But after this experience, we know we'll return!

Another opportunity arose to stay for their 3n/4 days program(we chose program "A " which includes a day of touring a few beautiful temples, a hot spring visit and a world heritage rice terrace area (or if you want to do something else just ask Wayan) This time taking a friend to experience balinese village life in a traditional village home compound with Wayan and Nyoman's wonderful family. The village is situated in a very pretty area, quiet, surrounded by rice fields. It is not on a busy dusty traffic road. The accommodation is very comfortable with air con if you need. I usually get up early, sometimes before the roosters, and make my way to the little local warungs as I know the local villagers who are very welcoming to visitors to the program, great photo opportunities everywhere, but you don't have to get up before breakfast around 8am. Go for a wander down the lanes and pathways to see family life happening in the village, you will always get a smile and a wave hello and a 3 minute walk down the road to the closest rice fields in the early morning is so peaceful and enriching for the soul. Some of the other families still have traditional wood fire kitchens for their cooking of rice in the early mornings, Wayan and Nyoman have modern kitchen and happy to keep cold refreshments in their fridge for you. Meals made by Nyoman is fabulous and plentiful, ask her about her corn fritters yum!! A full morning exploring the area with gentle walking though rice fields, learning about the plants and their uses, seeing farmers at work all add to the total experience. A visit to the Tabanan night market & trying some of the other foods there will make you want to go back. If Wayan is not able to take you on the day tour he will organise an alternative driver/guide for your day out. We had lots of fun with Agus who is a very skilled and friendly driver, he can even drive up rivers (yes, it did rain a river down one of the roads on the day we went to the Antosari Hot Spring) Well done Wayan and Nyoman on the continuation of a wonderful village stay program, I'm sure to be back again to stay with you.

What an amazing way to experience Bali....... Wayan and Nyoman were wonderful hosts delivering an interesting and varied program in order for you to get a true understanding of their way of life. I stayed for the 4 day, 3 night special program which provides sightseeing and day tours, traditional dressing, market / temple visits, offerings and handicraft lessons and much more. Living surrounded by the exquisite beauty of rice fields, the location in itself is one of surreal delicacy, immersed in a world of green where the Balinese world of old still exists. The accommodation is of course in a traditional Balinese compound where the full understanding of their way of life is appreciated. There are two separate bedrooms with double beds in each to accommodate. Separate bathrooms with shower and toilet for guests. etc. More than one requires for a relaxed and stress free stay. The cuisine cooked by Nyoman and family members also earns a mention. The array of exotic fare is remarkable and l found myself literally salivating at every sitting. To sit and eat traditional Balinese food while enjoying the company of this lovely family will truly be something to remember. Lovely people who cannot do enough to ensure your cultural holiday enjoyment, l highly urge anyone seeking a true Balinese experience to book the Bali Homestay program and live it for yourself. A wonderful involvement for families / couples and singles alike.

We stayed for three nights with the family and throughly enjoyed our time there. We loved the conversations, the excellent food prepared by Nyoman, the day spent exploring the rice fields. The family was very gracious with us and we appreciated the opportunity to be there with them. The only disappointment was not being able to participate in more local events as I was expecting maybe to attend the temple, see a ceremony, visit a school maybe. I also think Nyoman should offer cooking lessons!

Our family had a wonderful experience from rice fields walks to trips to cultural sites to bargaining at the the night market. Our kids loved playing with the neighbours and trying the wonderful local food. If you want to get away from the tourist hype you must stay here. The absolute highlight of our trip.

I stayed with Wayan and Nyoman for 3 days/2 nights and wish I'd booked sooner so I could have done a longer stay. This is a true village homestay experience that you won't find elsewhere in the region or all of Bali (as far as I can tell). Most other Bali "homestays" are merely B&Bs. I learned so much about Balinese (specifically Tabanan region) culture and life, and really enjoyed getting to know Wayan and Nyoman. This is a unique and special village experience with comfortable accommodations and facilities. As everyone else has said, Nyoman's cooking is excellent. I would love to go back and do one of their longer programs some day.
