I stayed here for 3 weeks and had a really nice time. Ayu, the wife of Ben is such a sweet and caring lady and cooks some good and authentic food. The rooms are in the back of the families "compound" which means there are numerous parts of the family living here. Aunts/Uncles grandparents.. etc. Each has their own little area. The family temple is also on the premises right in front. It's a little removed by the busyness of central Ubud but a quick walk/scooter ride away which is a great balance. The rooms are pretty basic but comfortable and always clean. Ben can arrange tours as well if needed. While it doesn't have the amenities of many other places, my first day here they set up a hammock for me and no one else I talked to stayin in Ubud had a room with a hammock. It's simple but super nice. You can meet friends who have pools at their places and use it for free with them, but where can you relax in a hammock on your porch listening to the sounds of bali?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ben and his wife, Ayu, welcome guests to stay in their beautiful Balinese Homestay during their visit to Ubud. Located just North of Ubud Palace and the bustling Ubud market, Ben's Homestay is on Suweta street, a quiet and serene road that is dotted with cafes, small boutique shops and Balinese temples. Upon entering Ben's Homestay, guests are greeted by friendly faces and a lush garden setting, filled with exotic flowers, mature trees and leafy plants. The 6 comfortable & clean rooms at Ben's Homestay offer sufficient privacy, and because Ben's extended family lives within the pavilion, guests know that their belongings will be secure (great for travelers with computers and other valuables) and they can sleep knowing the family dogs are on patrol all evening. Spending your time in a Balinese Homestay has other advantages - a friendly family member is always ready to share a smile, a kind greeting and a cup of tea with guests ... more less
