My husband and I spent at Merta House one week. It was unique opportunity to immerse into balinese village life without compromising modern amenities. The pool and garden are wonderful! But above all was human interaction with Madi (the property manager) and his family. Madi also provided transportation to any place we needed and at any time. His warm hospitality and genuine desire to make our vacation to be the best experience cannot be overestimated!
We had a great stay for 7 days at the beginning of our honeymoon at Merta House. Made was very informative, kind, and took care of anything we needed help with. We will definitely stay here again if we ever come back to Bali.
Wonderful village, fantastic and friendly people. We loved Made - he is unique nad wonderful, smart man. Villa is comfortable, private with wonderful, exotic garden good quality villa, great , lovely pool. Every day delicious breakfast, possibility of
ordering the meals from restaurant. Made is good driver and wonderful tour guide. With sure we will come back. Made, we miss you:)
Near Tangalaln and Kintamani, quiet peaceful village, friendly people, good quality villa, great pool. excellent service for breakfast etc. Transport available. Made and Nengeh were excellent hosts. Great walks and scenic views. Good restaurants by car.
What an incredible place to stay! I was looked after impeccably by Made and his family, I wanted for nothing! If you are looking for somewhere with a truly authentic, spiritual and typical Balinese feel, then you need look no further.
Made and his family made sure that I was looked after - being a single female traveller. And I shared tea, coffee and rice cakes with him and his family every day.
The villa itself was beautiful, authentic and very clean. It was home from home for the 5 days I stayed - thanks to Made and his family.
If I ever return to Bali; this is absolutely where I would choose to stay.
Merta House is a magical little place north of Ubud in Jasan Village. Such a lovely experience each time we stay, from visiting markets, hot water springs and various waterfalls and temples. Made and his family make our stay extra special, nothing is too much trouble for our funny, yet wise beyond his years friend and guide Made. Meals are delivered at night if you wish, we love the food from the local warung and it's so cheap! The house is sweet as, really comfy, huge bed, cable tv, stereo all mod cons and the lovely sweet staff come along every day and quietly cook breakfast as we wish.
There is a certain love for Merta House and the feeling you get when you stay there. We enjoy fun nights with local friends and attend ceremonies, I've pounded rice with the local ladies, visit local wood carvers and fall in love with the local children who are vibrant and cheeky. The local market is interesting to see.
Truly a magical place to stay. I'll be back again and again.
Fantastic villa. Very friendly and helpful staff!
Little out of the way in Jasan Village - (30mins central Ubud) but very private and the village is very welcoming.
Pool water fresh from natural spring water is beautiful! Personal maid who mggakes breakfast for you each morning and easy to order food from restaurant for delivery. Made will drive you anywhere you request at very reasonable price. Would recommend if looking to avoid the busier central ubud.
