Comfortable accomodation, but Balinese in aesthetic....the best of both worlds!

Interaction with Guests
We visit with our guests every couple of days to insure their comfort and answer any questions that they may have about Bali, the culture and what to do and see during their visit.
The neighborhood is very convenient to everything in Ubud and is a microcosm of the best that Bali has to offer. A walk out to the rice fields will enable you to experience the daily life of the farmers in this agricultural community. Watch the ducks as they clean the rice fields and get them ready for a new crop; see locals washing their laundry in the streams; visit with local artisans in their homes and really get a sense of what Bali is all about!
Welcome to our home. Please treat this house as your own. We have tried to provide every convenience for your comfort. We have furnished it with artwork and several collectible pieces for you to enjoy.
Let our housekeeper know if anything is broken or does not work properly so that we can continue to maintain it.
Please write in our guestbook before you leave, and on the Trip Advisor website when you return home.
We stayed in Hyacinth House for one week of our stay in Bali, and we could have picked a better place to stay. The location is so peaceful and beautiful and the house was spotless, we never met our host but in reality we didn't need to the staff and support team at the house were brilliant. We would recommend you try the menu of breakfast choice they all cooked to perfection The Pia & Ketut did an amazing job. Also we recommend you have a chat with Blue if you are planning any trip he knows all the best places to visit and is very helpful. All in all we loved our stay in Hyacinth House and would highly recommend the place . Thank you to Barbara and her team for a great stay
Staying at Hyacinth house was so much more than we ever expected. We felt like we got to experience the true Bali culture having this as our base. We had Blue pick us up, 100% use his taxi services. Our flight was delayed etc but blue was super understanding and communicative. He took us out on a day tour too which was fab, we learnt so much through the sights and just chatting to him and hearing about his own experience and background. Hyacinth house has everything you need, it's so relaxing all you can hear is nature and we were surrounded by super helpful locals. I honestly can't wait to come back - hopefully for longer next time too! Thank you so much everyone at Hyacinth for making our stay wonderful. You'll also be fed the tastiest breakfasts!
My daughter and I adored our week at Hyacinth House. It is a very beautiful and special place. The neighbourhood and location among the rice fields on the outskirts of Ubud (very short walk to Ubud centre) was perfect, the house was beautifully appointed and decorated, and we really enjoyed our morning breakfast in the outdoor garden and pool area. A special thanks to host Barbara, very welcoming and helpful staff, and knowledgeable and kind driver Blue who all made our week in Ubud very special indeed. Highly recommend.
The Hyacinth Villa made my stay Ubud absolutely amazing. Though is was nearly a 10 minute walk to the villa, walking the narrow trail gave a sense of adventure. Especially at night. My daughter and I were tickled every night when we came back home as we listened to the sound of nature. The host, Henry came to see about us almost everyday of our stay to make sure we had all we need. Now about the staff... The most amazing people I have had the pleasure of meeting. Katut cooked the most maxing breakfast, Pia made some outstanding jams and Blue, the driver was soooo great. He even took my daughter to a cock fight! If you are looking to stay in a nice villa with a Caribbean feel, this the place to stay! And, the villa sits on a rice paddy yet no Mosquitos... At least they didn't bother me. Lol! The villa is also close to the main town, if you are up for a good walk. But there is lots to see along the road so the walk is not so bad. When I come back to Ubud, this will be where I will be staying

I stayed at Hyacinth House with my 16 year old son for a very short but sweet three days and three nights. We loved the house! Comfy inside with beautiful views outside! Pool was fabulous and refreshing after long walks through town. I particularly liked how the house was within walking distance of a great spa (Sedona Spa recommended by Henry) and also restaurants and shopping districts in Ubud. Henry was a gracious host and Ketut made wonderful breakfasts! Would definitely stay at Hyacinth House again.
We loved our stay at Hyacinth House . It was perfect for us to read and relax and enjoy the peaceful private surroundings. The little earrings close by were fabulous meaning we didn't have to go too far from our perfect base. Highly recommend this house . Barbara and Henry welcoming and ketuts breakfasts fabulous. We loved it and we will be back.
Loved this house's location! The walkways in the area are enchanting, the view is amazing, and the owners were very pleasant. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, the delicious breakfasts, and reading books on the giant patio. Thanks for having us!

About the Host, Barbara
My husband and I have had a love affair with Bali for many years, buying our Villa Sunrise on the beach in 2004, opening an Indonesian furniture and art gallery in Santa Fe New Mexico, organizing yoga and meditation retreats, and now having built our Villa in the ricefields of Ubud.
Villa Semua Suka and Bungalow Jepun were built in 2011 to western standards with a Balinese esthetic.
We have decorated the villa with high quality Balinese art, furniture and artifacts. Villa Sunrise, Villa Semua Suka and Bungalow Jepun are our 'homes' not 'hotels'........welcome Home!
