We have been to Pudja Guesthouse three times, for about two months altogether. And we keep coming back for good reasons.
1. The house is just perfect: built and furnished with attention to details, complete with a gorgous open air bathroom and kitchen. It is beautiful and comfortable, clean and absolutely free of mould. A rare find in this price range. The garden and the jungle view is amazing.
2. We also love the location: a beautiful village, relaxed and not noisy. Ricefields are a short walk away, as well as a sacred spring in the jungle. The more adventurous can take a hike to Ubud. We did that many times and enjoyed it a lot! Ubud center is easy to acces if you rent a motorbike (about 20 min). Tegallalang rice terraces are even closer.
If you want cultural immersion, this place is a must go: you can meet the locals, see their everyday life and even play sports with them. You can also go to ceremonies to nearby temples with the hosts.
3. And the best of all is the hosting family. Bayu is a professional host and a good friend. His wife, two children, and parents are lovely and all smiles. They treated us as part of their family, and we are really grateful for that.
All in all, Pudja is a great choice if you want to enjoy the magic of Bali!
Bayu is an amazing host, he did so much for us I can't even fit it all within a review. He made us feel very welcome as he even came to pick us up to our previous stay. The house itself looks brand new and is very beautiful, clean and its value is amazing for the price. He explained all the balinese traditions and took the time to escort us to his rice terrace and the famous Tegallalang rice terraces. The breakfast he prepares, is delicious an he can also arrange a cheap but tasteful dinner if needed. His family is lovely and always smiling:) His father owns a small business for washing clothes, so he can even wash your clothes for a very cheap price. All in all, if you are checking out this listing I urge you not to look any further. This place is the best thing that ever happened to us and we've been to many BnB's but none of them even come close to this. This truly is an authentic Balinese experience and we learned so much from it. Thank you so much Bayu, this was a life changing experience. We would love to visit again next time when we visit Bali :)
