Nice traditional Balinese compound with 12 rooms, providing hot shower and Wifi (meanwhile a bit of standard). Breakfast served on you own veranda with standards as omelet, fruit plate and coffee or tee.
Staff is nice, not pushing for additional services and rooms are spacious and clean.
150.000 Rp for the night (might be bargained)
This "village" is like a compound with 5 "villas". There are 2 joglos (the bigger villa), 2 rumahs, and a lumbung. I have stayed in one of the joglo and one of the rumah.
The village and the villas are well-designed. The shared pool is right in front of your villa. They give you great breakfast (ask for the banana) and they provide you with a kitchen (a great way to save money). The bathroom has an outdoor feel. So Balinese.
If you're lazy to go out for a meal, they provide you with list of restaurants and they deliver FAST. If you're too lazy to go for your massage, they'll come to you.
Those are the ups.
Now the downs : It's pretty far from Ubud Centre. If you don't ride a moped/a bike, you have to walk around 25-35 mins to Ubud Centre. And please be careful, there's no sidewalk and the traffic is pretty busy
The staffs are incredibly great.
Although I did not stay here, I did check out the rooms and grounds. The rooms were spacious, the location was in the rice paddies off of Jalan Bisma and breakfast is included, although there is no swimming pool. I would advise calling Bali Moon to make reservations, as my E-mail had gone unanswered. In 2010, rates were approximately USD$35.

Good on privacy.
Accessible to rice fields
Friends of ours tipped us about Amanpraha, we wanted to be in some place quiet, close to Ubud.
Amanpraha house turned out to be perfect, a incredibly beautiful and impressive house, spacious, with a big swimming pool & garden and in the midst of nature. The meals were very good and the staff (3) and owners very friendly. The house is very nicely decorated.
Bedrooms were great. Great place to relax! We rented a room & meals. The house has 4 double bedrooms and a detached guesthouse that sleeps 4.
Owners told us you can also rent the house or/and the bungalow if you are with a group. We thought Amanpraha was a real find!
At first it was not easy to find but the owners will pick you up from Ubud.
Super beautiful house of "open" architecture, large swimming pool, beautiful surroundings. We did many walks in the area. About 20 minutes from Kuta. Very quiet, great for families also.
I did not stay here, but had heard about it. The owner, I Nyoman Merthayasa, was kind enough to show me one of the rooms.
Rooms range in price from US$20 to US$35. The owner asked that I mention that they will be putting a pool in soon. The room I saw was very clean. The mirrors & shelf/cabinet were handmade by the owner himself & were of beautiful quality. This is a great budget spot for travelers without lots of luggage (only because of the stroll through the rice paddies).
The business card states that Ala's Hibiscus 2 offers private bathrooms with bathtubs, hot & cold water, ceiling fans, nice view of the rice fields, choice of breakfast, & tea/coffee all day.
This was one of the best hotels i have ever stayed at. My mother in law, husband, one year old son and myself stayed in the 2 bedroom Lodi Gadis villa, which is at the far back of the property.We stayed on the first floor as it was larger and easier for my son to run around in, plus the stairs to the second floor are very steep. The first floor bedroom is larger and has an outdoor bathroom. huge soaking tub with in a bed of rocks and against a frangipani tree. Second floor has a large balcony over looking a small rice paddy. Romantic bedroom with beautiful ceiling detail. Staff are amazing. My son was very ill and they did whatever they could to help. The hotel is small, so everyone knows your name. There are no common areas in the hotel, so there is a lot of privacy. Staff rings a door bell before they enter your property. They bring breakfast to your villa in the morning or you can have in the restaurant. highly recommend the banana juice and banana pancake. We used their driver Kadek on day trips and he was a great driver/guide.
The baby cot they gave us, was a beautiful wooden cot, but more appropriate for a newborn baby. Our bed was massive, so he happily slept with us for three nights. They also have baby high chairs (ikea one) and a play kitchen stove, which my son loved playing with. Included in the room, you get a free transportation within Ubud.
The only cons ( and they are so minor), all beds have no headboards, so it can be difficult to read in bed. Like what other reviewers wrote, there are lots of steps. It didn't bother me, but it can be exhausting for people not in shape. This place isn't disabled friendly. It's about a 7 minute walk of up and down steps from lobby to our room. But i have to say a beauiful landscaped walk. If you stay in this villa, you can have the driver take you to the back exit, which is right near this room. They really need to have a better website with more pictures. The real thing is much better!
Calling all budget travelers - in Ubud, you have a wide choice of homestays and guesthouses. They are usually family-run and consists of a couple of rooms. Prices are really reasonable especially during non-peak season. Most of the times, the lodge will only provide cold water and fan. Sometimes home-cooked breakfast is included. If you are interested, they can arrange balinese massage too.....

Good hotel with a pleasant, open lobby. Several small apartments on the grounds of the hotel with small patios in between, statues, tiny and somewhat mysterious swimming pool. Overall impression was that of a temple complex rather than a hotel.
Coming to Bali? Know an expat or Indonesian that lives there? If both answers are yes, your expat friend in Bali could be your gateway to outstanding hotel booking rates. Most expats in Bali that have lived here for a long time, or are working for international companies in Bali, are on a kitas visa. Kitas visa holders, as well as Indonesian citizens holding KTP identity cards are eligible for 50% discounts at most Balinese resorts and hotels. Having your expat or Indonesian associate or friend make your hotel or resort booking for you in person can result in huge savings not generally available from even the largest travel operators. This approach will generally only work if the hotel or resort is less than 70% booked for the desired travel period.
My husband and I just returned from Bali. We found a great little house to rent near Ubud.
It was call Green T house and this real cool guy named Tony designed this fantastic mini- eco resort. Everything was low impact on the environment etc.
Anyway, Our house was only $40 USD a night and included a small but complete kitchen (My husband is a chef) 2 story. 2 doubles and 1 single bed, 1 bath.. There was even Lemon grass growing in the garden!
Every morning some delightful Balinese girls would come cook us anything we wanted for breakfast. It had a pool and fantastic views of the rice fields.
Stunning grounds - pool - friendly people.
This visit to Ubud we decided to stay somewhere that was a lot cheaper than what we would normally pay. Dewa Bungalows certainly fitted the bill.....about $25 per night per room.
It was budget accomodation but suited us ok.
Breakfast was included in the price. Basic but adequate. No dining room, instead it was served outside our room on the balcony.
The staff were lovely. Every morning when we ventured outside someone was always waiting to see if we were ready for breakfast yet.
The pool was lovely to swim in, although I think I only made it in there once.....it rained very heavily while we were in Ubud!
I highly recommend Ubud Lestari Bungalows. B/f for two included in the price. It's managed by a Japanese lady and her Balinese hubby.
Clean queen-sized bed and shower. Room has ceiling fan. The room is spacious with a zen/balinese layout, minimalistic layout with the use of dark wood and rattan with ikat trimmings.
The balcony is my facourite part of the bungalow. If you can, choose the rooms on the second level. One room has an invigorating view of the rice paddies. The other room overlooks the balinese straw-like roofs of the surroundings. The chit-chat of birds and chirpy insects can be heard at dusk and dawn.
Ask and the staff will let you into the paddy field behind. Yes, they hold the key to the litte wooden gate separating you and the glorious green fields.
Its nice just around rice field....hiddent from main street, no noisy, no vihicle sound...really quiet place to be.
So many guest house in Ubud, so no need worry where to stay, and the price is more cheaper than hotel. the people is friendly and nice.... ready help everybody need it....
