I stayed at Nirwa way back in October, but the stay was so wonderful and memorable I just had to write about it.
Really, Made and Ayu make the whole stay absolutely wonderful. They are truly kind people with good hearts that wish for nothing but for you to have a pleasant stay at their home. They are always willing and happy to teach you about Balinese culture, and although that was not my intent when coming to Bali, I was surprised to find just how much more I wanted to learn. As soon as I set foot in the homestay, Made offered to take us to a cremation (a huge celebration) in Bali, which was really a once in a lifetime experience.
The bungalow I stayed in looked out to a stretch of beautiful, green rice fields. The room was clean and tidy, and the outside patio with couch and table was my little corner to cuddle up with a laptop or read a book.
Ayu's famous banana leaf pancakes are also as good as everyone advertises them to be. She makes them fresh everyday and they're absolutely delicious. Her other breakfast items also taste great, and she's willing to make breakfast for you at any time, whether you have an early or late departure.
Location is also good. Ubud can be a loud and noisy place with all of the development in tourism, but Nirwa's is tucked away in a rice field behind the main road, so it's the perfect combination of 'downtown' and 'getting away from it all.'
I'm so happy I found this place, and next time I go to Bali I am DEFINITELY coming back.
