The highlight of our Ubud Trip was the Alam Jiwa Hotel. We stayed in the Jatayu Room for 3 nights from the 31st - 3rd of Feb 2011. The newly constructed room is standalone, like a private villa. It has a huge garden, with water features and ponds, frangipani trees. It was absolutely gorgeous. The room has a patio with day beds and a dining table. We had a king-size bed, very comfortable and french windows from wall to wall, looking out to the garden and rice paddies. The bathroom was huge, with bathtub and open-to-sky shower. The hotel had an incredible breakfast menu. They also served afternoon tea/coffee with cake. Yummy!! The hotel has been maintained meticulously. The staff is cordial and friendly. They have a free shuttle service that takes you into Central Ubud. The swimming pool is big enough.
Another thing worth mentioning is the location. The hotel is located in the woodcarvers' village of Nyuhkuning, just a couple of kilometres south of Central Ubud. The village has a very warm feel to it. I recommend taking a walk through the village and checkout the local shops that sell the woodcarvers' creations.
I highly recommend Alam Jiwa.

Escape the crowds at this gorgeous, intimate little hotel an easy 25 minute walk through the Monkey Forest to Ubud (they also offer a free shuttle). We've stayed at places twice the price and the room was better than any of them, plus it had a stunning balcony overlooking the rice paddies. Wonderful service, delicious breakfasts and a gorgeous pool. We just couldn't believe the value! We will definitely be coming back here and recommending it to friends.

Alam Jiwa was amazing !! we stayed here for the last 4 days of our trip and absolutely loved it and wish that we would have stayed for longer !! the pick up and drop off service into any area in Ubud was great and allowed us the freedom and convenience to travel around for free !! Ubud is the best part of Bali and Alam Jiwa allowed us to eperience it in real Bali style!! the staff were fantastic and the breakfast was lovely !!! The only things they could do better is if they servec more meals, but then there are so many GREAT restaurants in Ubud that its worth getting out and about to check them all out !! the kids loved the pool and loved the rice paddies and ducks . . .cant wait to get back there and stay again with my family and friends :)

This was our second stay. We love this place so much. Our room overlooked the rice paddies and each morning we watched the sun come up and the duck tenders get their ducks in a row in the rice field.. The room was very clean and well decorated. We had air-conditioning and being from Colorado we really appreciated it. The breakfast is fantastic and served on our balcony . The employees have become friends.We will be back.

Alam Jiwa is beautiful!! I would rate it up there with Dynasty Resort but half the price!!! A little hard to find at first, tho that adds to the feel of the place once your there, as its tucked away and so beautiful!!! From the flower decorations to the detail in the stone pathways...With only 11 rooms the staff arattentive to every need and very friendly. We travelled with our 2 children 2years and 4years, as well as with another couple who had a 4 year old, the kids loved their stay as much as we did! The staff are very friendly and interacted with the kids which gave the place that little bit extra warm feeling! The rooms are gorgeous and yes like other reviews have mentioned mozzies but the staff light mozzie coils and put them out in and around your room every evening and we did not notice the mozzies when in our rooms of an evening! We had aircon in our room Our friends didnt have aircon in their room, tho they said the fan was enough to keep them cool at night!! Alam Jiwa has top staff who would bend over backwards if you asked them to! They have the free drive who will drop you off and pick you up when requested or the walk through the monkey park to town is about 20minutes! We also hired scooter from up the road from the hotel for a very good rate and that added to our Ubud experience! W had a late flight out and the staff were more then happy to hold our bags and let us shower and change befor taking us to the airport! Alam Jiwa is definitely a hotel I would reccomend to friends and family with or without children as its beautiful affordable and the staff are wonderful we are planning our next trip back already and we've only just left!!!
