Great place to stay in ubud. Easy walk to town and great eating places nearby. Surrounded by rice paddies. Green banana pancakes are fantastic and tea and coffee always available. No hot water but that was not a problem to us. Owned by very friendly people.

My stay at this home stay, in the middle of the beautiful rice fields of Ubud, was just wonderful. It is a very quiet and relaxing place with beautiful rooms and the owners are very very helpful and welcoming. It is close to town but it still feels so far away from reality, the beds are comfortable and the breakfast is very good, make sure you try the green banana pancakes! I had a wonderful time here and will come back very soon.

My stay was great! Made and Ayu (homeowners) really do treat you like family and they speak good english and communicate easily and have many suggestions if you ask. The breakfast is great...many have already mentioned the banana pancakes which are great but all the other breakfast options are great as well (omelets, french toast, noodles, etc) Another highlight meal of the trip was when Made ordered a smoked duck from a local smoker. You have to order it 24 hours in advance and it is a local delicacy. Another meal that was suggested is the restaurants in the rice paddy out back of the house. At first I was worried since they are off the beaten path that they might not be suitable for tourists but they are specifically focused for tourists, the food is great and the views are wonderful especially at sunset! Next time I go back to Ubud I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: If you want the best view of the rice paddy request room #1.

I planned to stay here for 2 nights and i stayed for 6 night! The location is great, just out of the busy centre of ubud, surrounded by rice paddies! You walk out of the gate and you're on the path of one of the best walks around ubud! The rooms are clean and spacious. Made is the head of the family and a great host. He knows a lot about the town and what to do. He also can offer you tours and is always laughing! The included breakfast in the morning is great, Ayu makes the best banana pancakes! I can really recommend this great homestay and actually came back to spend my last night on bali here at Nirwa Homestay!

Top notch hospitality. Perfect location. Right off the main drag so an easy walking distance to the town area, but also out enough to be located in the beautiful rice paddies of Ubud (A 10-minute lovely walk to Organik Sari). The grounds were beautiful and typical Balinese style. The rooms were simple, but spacious. Great value.

The staff was unusually friendly and helpful. We had a late flight out and were offered their personal bathroom and shower to use after a day running around ubud. The pancakes were very good, probably the best we'd had around bali. The rooms are simple with no A/C (the fan made up for it just fine) but it is a homestay after all and the point is to experience the Balinese lifestyle.

We stayed in the same bungalow mentioned in the more negative review below. We had a different experience, but may have also had different expectations. We enjoyed it, including the local gecko that cleared out the bugs at night. We did not find excessive ants and when some invaded the bathroom one day, the owners took care of it. The place has a rustic beauty and we loved being 100-150 meters from the main road on the edge of the rice paddies as one of the major trails on the rice paddies began at Nirwa's backdoor. The small organic restaurant 10 minutes into the walk was a real find! There are two restaurants and we recommend going to the second one associated with the organic farm.
Ayu, Made and their son were great hosts. We received excellent recommendations for low costs but high quality experiences such as whitewater rafting, kecak and fire dance shows, and spas. Ayu also took the time to explain her morning offerings to me and a little about her spiritual culture which is very present at the homestay. We would happily stay in the bungalow again if we return to Ubud. If you enjoy staying with families, slightly more rustic lodging, etc., I think you will like it too. The bungalow does have a few steep stairs into their bathroom. If you have mobility challenges, you may want to request a different room.
