I couldn't believe the level of service and quality you receive at Rumah Bali for the moderate amount of price per night you pay. The overall atmosphere is very Bali like and those who love the authentic and local feel will definitely fall in love with this place. The rooms (or bangalows) are located a bit inside from the front desk, but this allows for the peace and quite from the busy main roads of Tanjung Benoa. The pool is wonderful and always empty. During the 4 nights I stayed I only witnessed a few people swim during the night after a small party they had in their room.

Another plus is the breakfast delivered to the comfort of your room. Of course the connection with the famous Bumbu Bali restaurant confirms the quality of food you are served. They were punctual with the delivery time of the meals.

Two flaws are the Wi-fi and bathroom. Although they have wi-fi available in the rooms, the signals are too weak. The best place to use it is at the front desk, which is outdoors and about 3~5 minutes walk from the rooms. Bathrooms are located outside of the room (basically outdoor but with your own privacy). This sort of enhances the authentic feeling, but those not used to it might need some getting used to. For me, I was already comfortable by the second day.

Other than that, it was a fabulous 4 nights.

We had our nice little cottage just next to the amazing swimming pool at Rumah Bali. The cottage had everything you need and more. After a day or two we actually felt sorry for the people in the resorts where they stayed like chickens in a big factory.

We had our privacy, breakfast to the room with no extra cost, our private little sitting area in the back of the house and a beautiful and modern bathroom.

Just in front of the Rumah Bali there are a few shops and restaurants, so everything you need is really close. Also to the beach is only a few minutes walk.

Pros:
- Amazing grounds around the cottages
- Great breakfast options (in restaurant or in the room)
- Great pool
- Lovely staff
- Modern rooms with wifi, TV, fridge, etc.

We absolutely loved it and would have stayed longer if we could. Everyone was friendly around the place and had its own special T-Shirt on which you could see how long they are working there. It does show us the the owners care about the happiness and wellbeing of their staff, otherwise you would not have people there with 10 and more years on their shirts.

Probably one of the best places we have been so far.

After travelling to Bali reasonably regularly for 30 years we were getting a bit jaded. Then we found Rumah Bali. It is a breath of fresh air. Quiet, relaxed, friendly staff, great food and very reasonable prices. You can venture out into the rat-race if you are inclined, but it's a sanctury to return to. The cooking class is fun, too.

Cannot say just how perfect this oasis in Bali is! My husband and I stayed 4 nights and have already booked to go back in another six weeks.
We had our own private villa (room 301) with private pool. Pure serenity. Nothing was too much for the hardworking staff. All requests answered immediately and cheerfully. Nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you fabulous staff of Rumah Bali for making our first stay such a joy.
Can't wait to see you all again soon.

Talk about value for money! B&B's must get the bed and the breakfast right, and Rumah Bali did, and so much more. There were not many rooms left when we booked for 3 days. Our room was simpler than others (no 4 poster bed with netting) but they have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Smaller bed than some, queen size, but with crisp linens, and comfortable. Two chairs, plus a desk with small chair IN the room (most places do not have any chairs inside, only outside on your verandah). Outside we had a private verandah with table and chairs where we had our breakfast, a sofa, and two lounging chairs. Rumah Bali is set up like a series of small villages - in ours were 3 units inside a walled area with gardens and a small pool. The pool was lovely, very clean and good for short (!) laps, running on the spot (perfect depth for that), or just to take a plunge. Our bathroom was absolutely huge, and very well designed. Lots of shelves, armoire and dresser, drying rack, and the shower slightly lower than the rest of the marble floor, so the water stays IN the shower :)

The breakfast could be one of the best breakfasts we've had on our trip. We chose the American Breakfast the first day, and had it every day especially for the pastries. The croissants would rival a good pastry shop, and the cinnamon raisin rolls were also flaky and delicious. The eggs, bacon or sausages, grilled tomatoes were all done very nicely. The blended juice were really good and a nice selection of fresh fruit. And excellent plunger coffee that smelled and tasted so good. A large breakfast for sure!

We also ordered room service one day for lunch. They offer balinese food from Bumbu Bali, and what a treat that was. They served us on our private verandah with the food in tiffin containers. It was absolutely fabulous, and very generous portions.

The service from all staff was excellent, from check in, to breakfast, to room service, all to a high standard.

Overall we thought this was great value for the cost of around $100/night. Our only regret was that we only stayed for 3 nights!

Well, we returned from our stay at Rumah Bali 1 week ago and I really wish that we were still there. What a great place to stay and relax. When we first arrived we weren't sure what to expect but when we walked down to the pool area and saw our rooms we thought phew and wow :-) The rooms were beautiful, bathroom and closet areas hugh and looking down on the pool area was lovely both day and night. The staff are all lovely, friendly and very beautiful people, we didn't have a problem with anyone. Nothing was too much trouble, including the Security Guards trying to catch geckos late at night (he he he he). For our last night we wanted to have dinner (from Bumbu Bali restaurant of course) by the pool and it was not a problem, tables and chairs were brought in and dinner was organised. We found out later that they had never set dinner up in this area before but I think it is something that they might do again without a problem. To Supartra, Ari, Katut and all the staff in Food and Beverage, thank you for making our stay very special, we enjoyed seeing all of your friendly, happy faces at breakfast and during the day. To Made, the girls in the office and the drivers, thank you for your help and assistance, especially looking after my Mother and Stepfather by picking them up and dropping them back to their rooms when required, again nothing was a problem. Made thank you for our day trip, it was another highlight of the stay and something to treasure. To all of the housekeeping staff, what a job well done, you all work very hard and do a great job as well as the staff looking after the gardens. Bumbu Bali restaurants 1 & 2 are both A one. We had a great night for my Sisters 50th when we arrived and celebrated my Mothers 75th at the end of our stay. Again the staff, service and food was first class and top notch.

I totally recommend staying at Rumah Bali, especially if you want a relaxing, stress free, traditional Balinese stay and not a Westernised resort.

A great place to start our holidays in Bali and the ideal place to relax and recover from our long haul flight. The rooms are comfotable, spacious and well equiped. The breakfasts was absolutely superb and served to our veranda. Staff are excellent and helped us with our onward plans. We are sure you will not be disappointed with the high standard of facilities and service should you choose to stay here. Overall good value for money.

Room Tip: Their two reataurants on the main street are serve excellent Indonesian food.
