About This Listing
Experience authentic, Balinese life. The Payogan Homestay is located within our traditional, Balinese family compound, a 20 minute walk away from Ubud. The room is spacious, with a clean and contemporary style, a beautiful space complemented with Balinese accents. You will wake up to the traditional sounds of Bali and experience the essence of staying in a Balinese village. This listing is for the downstairs room.
The space includes a large bedroom, an attached living space, a kitchenette, and a private bathroom. Should you wish to stay for a longer period, we can provide a stove and other cooking equipment. The large open-air bathroom includes a tub and shower with hot water only a turn-of-a-tap away.
Living in a balinese family compound means that you will have many friendly, neighbors. The compound is home to a large extended family, all of whom are very involved in traditional Balinese life, and committed to our village ceremonies. Many of these ceremonies also take place in the family temple which is in the middle of the compound. We welcome you to participate if you choose. In fact, we encourage our guests to join us to get the true feeling of Balinese culture. We can always help you through the experience and provide the traditional wear. We can also introduce you to some local craftspeople if you're interested in Balinese art and clothing.

Fint bemötande under hela vistelsen. Underbar familj, vegetation, och fint rum. Ketut var en trevlig person! Perfekt ställe att bo på om en reser med barn. Rent och snyggt!
Had an amazing stay!!! Ketut was extremely kind and helpful. When I told him that I needed to go to the airport at 3am in the morning, he didn't hesitate to offer me a ride at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend staying in ketut's place when visiting Ubud. Than you very much for an pleasant stay!
Ketut mandra's home stay was AMAZING!! I felt so welcome and at home. Every morning was greeted with a coffee, banana omelette and veggie omelette with a big hello!!
His family are such loving people and were more than happy to help in anyway to make my experience great.
I walked into Ubud, or scootered!
I highly recommend you stay here if traveling to ubud.
I wanted to thank you all very much for a wondeful trip and stay in your home. I was a single women travelling alone and stayed with Ketut and his family for appx 12 days. It was wonderful to get to know them and I was exposed to their day to day living. I 2as able to set up airport pick and drop off at a reasonable price with a bonus of feeling safe and treated as part of the family. So nice to come home and tell them all abouy my day. Some of the memorable moments was Wayan hosting us on a tour. Wayan and Made playing music for us one evening and Ketut sister is a must request for her massage and acupuncture treatment. Lastly. I loved the breakfast so much I ate banana pancakes every day and requested two for my last breakfast. If you should want a tour they are more than happy to arrange just make sure you request specifics or Ketut can make recommendations. Thank you very much. Missing Bali and my Bali family
Where do I even start? I loved every moment of my stay at Payogan! Ketut and his beautiful family made every effort to make sure my stay was comfortable (including my endless requests for their delicious Balinese coffee). Ketut is great at communicating with his guests and can provide you with all the information you need about Ubud or sightseeing opportunities. The room was just beautiful and I particularly loved the semi outdoor bathroom, so nice! The compound is surrounded by gorgeous nature and the sounds of the local birds and wildlife makes it very relaxing! I was VERY sad to leave everyone at Payogan and can only hope to come back very soon! Thank you Ketut for making my trip to Bali extra special!
We had an amazing 2 nights at Ketut's place. His place was beautiful and quiet, we slept really well through the night. We even had a massage by his niece at our room and it was great! Ketut was nice, friendly and helpful, he never fails to greet us cheerily. He helped us with our transportation to and fro the city center in Ubud and even helped us arrange a driver when we wanted to go hiking at Mount Batur. The room was clean and spacious and had a nice outdoor shower with hot/cold water. I will definitely recommend his place!
Ketut's place and Ketut himself are both great! The room is huge, gets lots of natural light and is part of the compound of Ketut's extended family. That means that you're staying in an authentic Balinese house - something other tourists pay to see. The garden is lovely and there's even the family temple as part of the compound. We loved the whole experience.
The walk to the center of Ubud takes a good 45 minutes to an hour, so we rented a scooter for getting around - which also took care of the problem of dogs barking at us on our way home.
Ketut and his son are very nice, very willing to share information about the Balinese way of life and also always there to fix any problems that may appear in the house. I would highly recommend staying here if you want a very good room for a good price and to experience the authentic Balinese way of life.
