“Sincere hospitality and tranquil”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

As a break from staying in hotels with the crowds, hustle and bustle - this place was a respite. The driver pick up was punctual and a last minute request to getting picked up earlier than planned was accommodated. The driver, staff at the villa and Made are extremely gracious, helpful and make you feel at home (all done with the sincerity).

Upon Arrival at the airport we were warmly greeted at 3am by Made and driven to Jasan Village. We stayed as guests for just over a week and at the end felt more like family. It was the highlight of or trip to Indonesia and we would definitely book Merta House again. Find Merta house on Facebook for pictures of our trip. If you are going to Bali this should be on your itinerary.

This is the fourth time I've been to Bali & was the best by far. It was also the first time travelling overseas with our baby daughter Maya & everybody at Merta House made travelling with her easier & better than we could ever have imagined. All our requests were met & they went out of their way to provide a cot, pram, highchair & put a temporary pool fence up. Our daughter loved her stay & it really was the people who made it so special for her. Although Jasan Village is a half an hours drive from Ubud everything you need is provided & every request met.
If you want to see the Real Bali & experience real Balinese hospitality & feel part of a small Balinese community this is the place to stay.
Oh! How we miss our Yummy Nasi Goreng breakfast!
Thank you everybody at Merta House for making our stay so special & thank you Made for treating our daughter as though she was your own; the beaming smiles you brought to her face are truly priceless.

My first stay at merta house last year in November and I must say I was so impressed especially with the hospitality. The house itself is a quaint meets modern Balinese style house with all the mod cons. Secluded, but set amongst the beautiful Jasan village and its warm friendly people. I was very impressed. The staff especially made were amazing especially going all out to organise a hugely impressive 40th birthday party for me which when we saw the set up was like it was set for a wedding!! These people went over and above making sure my night was unforgettable.. They provided amazing traditional Balinese food, dancers and an authentic

“this holiday at Merta House was really one to remember”

My daughter and I stayed three days at Merta House with two young children of 8 and 3. We were welcomed by Made, the house manager ,and Made Mawny, the smiling driver at our hotel in Ubud, and driven to Merta House in Jasan. Right from the start, Made made us feel at home ! The house is superb, perfectly clean and the swimming pool and garden are lovely. Made took us around the village and the two girls were happy to discover the animals and plants. Breakfast was cooked for us every morrning with a choice of food: brilliant !! and always with the nice smile of Made. Made also organised day tours for us and Made Mawny, now the family driver ,became the girls best friend! We were invited in Made's house to meet the family and then to Made Mawny's family. We were really at home and felt very warmly welcome. We even took part in the temple ceremony as members of Made and Made Mawny' family. A moment to remember. We still talk about our stay at Merta House. Made Mawny drove us around the whole island on several daytrips, and we even asked him to be our driver when we were later staying in Candi Dasa. He was a safe, helpful, very nice and patient driver. With Made's advices on planning our daily trips, we had the most wonderful stay. Cherry on the cake, so to speak: we celebrated my birthday at Merta House and I was offered the nice surprise of a Balinese dinner prepared in the house for me, and a most charming birthday cake (European chocolate!) plus the wishes of staff and friends of Merta House!! unforgettable. We left with our hearts full of the warmth of our family in Jasan. We even learnt how to say : "we are from jasan village" in Balinese. Really a place to stay !!!! Made and Made Mawny are worth the trip. We will not forget their kindness. They stay in our hearts, really !! the best moments of our Bali trip.

person found this review helpful

This beautiful villa was the perfect retreat for us. About half and hours drive from Ubud we could relax into village life but could still head into the main town to restaurants and shops. Made, the villa manager, was excellent. Super friendly and helpful and always on hand to help us if we needed anything. We could order food with him and have it brought to the villa from the restaurant and breakfast was served every morning in the villa. There are tours and activities available trough Merta House and we were really made to feel welcome in the village. Made organised traditional dancing at the villa for our last night which was exceptional and the highlight of our trip. I cannot recommend this highly enough! We had our own transport but transport was available on days that we didnt want to drive. We had a fantastic time and would love to return soon.

Merta House is an oasis of calm after the madness of Seminyak. We spent two days here and were welcomed as family by the joyful Made. A walk through the terraced rice paddies and a swim in the pool and we felt more at home than anywhere we have ever stayed in Bali. The villa is fantastic, with fast wi-fi, tvs and a beautiful pool we struggled to get the kids out of for the 15 minute drive to Ubud. With food delivered from the excellent Kampung Cafe if you fancy staying poolside, helps make this a really magic spot.
