“A fantastic homestay in a unique location - superb”
Reviewed January 5, 2010

We are currently staying at the Hibiscus Cottages having extended our stay from four nights over new year to a week. The cottages are surrounded by rice fields in a lovely quiet location that is just a few minutes walk from the main streets of Ubud and fifteen minutes walk from Monkey Road. We are staying in one of the cheaper rooms on the ground floor which is spacious and clean as a new pin. The price includes a hearty breakfast menu from which you can choose eggs, jaffles, pancakes etc and fruit salad or juice. Maddy does the best poached eggs we've had so don't leave without trying them! Breakfast is delivered to your terrace where you can sit and enjoy breakfast al' freso. Tea and coffee are provided all day long too......

Our room didn't have air con but did have a fan. We left the windows open and fan on and slept under the mosquito net and it was comfortable. The cottages are set around a lovely shady courtyard which is quite cool and a welcome relief from the sun at times.....

It is a family run place and the family are really lovely. My fiancee was unwell for a couple of days and they were most concerned and couldn't do enough to help. Maddy who is employed there was very helpful in organising a moped for us and even picked it up and delivered it back. They also organised tickets for a dance show for us so that we didn't have to deal with the ticket touts!!

This is a wonderful little homestay that should not be missed - we will certainly be back next time we are in Bali.

Hibiscus Cottages is a five roomed guest house set in the rice paddies of Ubud. My daughter and I had a wonderful five days there. The views are beautiful, the rooms clean, fan cooled and there is a fridge stacked with beer and water. A delicious breakfast is provided each morning, this is included in the cost of room. The family who run this guest house are delightful, they are currently planning to run traditional Balinese cooking classes in their own kitchen. We experienced cooking with them, the food was absolutely delicious and I would recommend anyone to attend the classes when they begin. Our room was $30 Aus per night for two, including breakfast! The cottages are within walking distance of the main area in Ubud, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a more authentic Balinese experience. Helen Murray, Adelaide,Sth Australia

What can i say, this place is like a hidden gem. Quite far away from all the actions, but it's a very calm & relaxing place to stay. Great sunrise & sunset.

Rooms are very spacious, with amazingly huge bathtub, from the bathroom you will see great view of paddy fields.

The owner & his family are very friendly ppl, joke and always helpful. Their breakfast (included with room) is so delicious and serves to your balcony/lobby...

Not to mention the price is GREAT too... me & other 2 friends stayed in this triple room on 1st floor (best room i think) for only Rp.350,000 a night with breakfast for 3 person. my other 2 frens stayed in double room downstair Rp.200,000. my other fren stayed in single room downstair, only Rp.150,000. definitely GREAT VALUE.

Highly recommended... although location is not too strategic.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights upon our arrival in Bali. And it ended up being the best of all the hotels/guesthouses we stayed in while on the Island. Their quality and value were second to none.

There are five suites (I think) contained within this family-run compound, three on the ground level and two on the upper floors. The two upper suites offer great views of paddy fields and surrounding residences, are bright, spacious, clean and have a shaded porch and catch a nice breeze. We did not stay in one of the garden level suites, but they appear very pleasant and have shaded porches that look out onto the courtyard gardens.

The staff are very friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. Excellent breakfast delivered to your door with fresh fruit, toast, eggs and endless tea are provided as part of the room cost.

The location is great, nicely removed from the noise and clutter that invades much of Ubud. It is a short 5 minute walk to Monkey Temple Road, the bustling heart of Ubud and 10 minutes to the start of the wonderful Campuan Ridge walk.

They also offer reliable airport pickup for an extra fee, which we took advantage.

I'll try to post some photos when I get a chance.

All in all, a very nice place.
