We went as a family of 6 with 4 kids aged 11, 14, 16, 18. We were all apprehensive as to what this would be like, but we all had a fabulous time, and felt it was one of the highlights of our time in Bali. We loved learning about Wayans culture and family traditions, and enjoyed walking through the rice feilds and local villages. Each mealtime was an event in itself, and we loved trying all the delicious foods Nyoman cooked for us. Dressing up in traditional Balinese outfits was a heap of fun for us all too. The whole family was attentive and caring.
Overall, it was a great experience, and we all would recommend it!

My partner and I took his son to Bali as a graduation present. We wanted to give him a genuine experience of the people and culture rather than a tourist holiday. We couldn't have picked a better homestay than Wayan and Nyoman's home. It surpassed all our expectations. We left with an appreciation and understanding of Balinese village culture and fond memories of Wayan and his family who made us feel right at home. It was the perfect experience and one which will continue to have a positive impression upon us for a long time.

Mum and I had the best time with Wayna, Nyoman and famil. To stay in their village was just such a highlight, everyone was so welcoming, the attention to detail and thoughtfulness made it such a positive experience. Nyoman's food, Oh my goodness we dream about the meals she so beautiful prepared.

We will be back at the same time next year, and look forward to seeing you all then.

I had an amazing experience with Wayan & his family. From the airport pick-up, he & Nyoman were gracious & accommodating. The room & property are truly in the heart of a Balinese village with virtually no other tourists. You honestly live like a local. I was provided with a basic room, a western bathroom, non-stop delicious food, personally guided tours, cultural activities, & lots of great sharing. This is not a 'bed & breakfast' or formal hotel - this is an experience which is so much more valuable.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Very special experience in my life.
Wayan and his wife Nyoman were full of passions.

They treated me like a family member and I was feeling like I am a member in the village.

This is a very special experience that you have to try during your life.

We chose the program with two nights at Tabanan in Bali and two nights at Glenmore, East Java. It was a brilliant experience. Everything the other reviews say about Wayan and his family are true and they made us feel as special as they are. At Glenmore, Amir's family were equally welcoming and eager to please. The cultural contrast of staying and eating with a Hindu family and then a Moslem family was fascinating. The highlight was the visit to the former Dutch plantation still fully operational but in a time warp from when the Indonesians reclaimed it in 1947.

Room Tip: A good tip is to stay at Pemuteran on north west Bali after returning from Glenmore late in the afte...

I and my friend are the 1st Vietnamese in Wayna's family; we were there right Kuningan ceremony. And this makes our trip to be a so much wonderful and memorable experience. Wayna, Nyoman and their family have given us a very wonderful moments. They have taken us to temples to join the ceremony and explained a lot of things about the ceremony, the culture that help us to understand more about Bali.

Their neighbor are also very friendly, they seem surprise to meet us at the ceremony (maybe we are foreigner at their ceremony) but also show their warmly welcome when knowing that we are client of their village :).

Spending 3 days 2 nights in their family have helped us to have a lot of memorable experiences when seeing Nyoman's cooking, when Nyoman teaches us to do something from young coconut leaf, when playing card with Wayna, when coming to rice field with beautiful,

I will not forget dishes that Nyoman cooked for us - it is so so delicious.

Next time I will come to Bali again and I will have some days to stay with their family again :).
