The Space

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.

As a licensed tour guide by profession, I can provide custom guided tours according to your interests and needs. We also provide airport transfer and local transportation at a very reasonable rate - we are only a call away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed here for 3 nights. If you're looking for a great homestay in Ubud, look no further. Ketut and his entire family helped us with everything - motorbikes, daytrips, taxis, restaurants, phone calls.They are all so nice and honest. After our flight landed late the first night, there was very heavy rain, so ketut and his wife brought us some beer and arranged for a restaurant to deliver dinner to our bungalow. True hospitality. We booked the day before arriving, and Ketut replied to all of my emails very quickly. The breakfast (especially banana pacakes) is amazing. Great coffee. Great location for seeing Ubud and beautiful property with many rice fields around. Restaurants very closeby. Strong airconditioning. The room was in nice condition and cleaned daily. If I am back in Bali, I will definitely stay here! Highly recommended!

  • My stay at Payogan home stay with Ketut and his family was wonderful. The stay was an experience that a hotel couldn't offer. I got a real Balinese experience as I was invited to attend a Hindu cremation ceremony, motorbike ride with Ketut to get local diner at a nearby warung and have great conversations about the Balinese way of life. I spent a lot of time with Ketut's sister, Nyoman, who took me under her wing and introduced me to the neighbors in the village.

    As for the room, it was great as well. It was clean with lots of space and light.

    *One thing to note is that if you are a light sleeper you may find quiet to be an issue. There are animals (dogs and roosters) that make lots of noise sometimes throughout the night and early mornings.

  • I had a wonderful stay at the compound. The family was very friendly, the room was extremely clean and comfortable and Ketut was very helpful as a tour guide and gracious host. The location was only ten minutes from the center of Ubud, which was nice to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city. As a solo woman traveler I felt completely comfortable staying here and I would recommend this to anyone looking for an adventure in Bali and amazing place to stay!

  • Ketut was amazing! I was so happy with my stay here! As a young woman traveling alone I was a bit worried about being alone in a foreign country but within no time Ketut made me feel at home with him and his family on their beautiful compound. The main center of Ubud is an easy taxi ride away or you can even walk. A bit long but you see a ton on the way. Ketut was available whenever I needed him and so helpful with advice on what to do and how to do it. Also his wife makes a delicious breakfast each morning. Thank you Ketut for a great experience in Bali!

  • I want to thank all i was given in this place.The place, atmosphere, hospitality,Mr.Ketut himself and his family was much great for me.
    He and his family take care with me any time i need, and fortunately even I was able to experience sharing our time with their locally community too, thanks to his invitation.
    Im looking forward to be back soon with my family and fiends soon!
    Thanks a lot for Mr.Ketut !!

  • Ketut was a fantastic host. He and his family were very friendly and made us feel right at home in the village compound. His wife cooks delicious meals - authentic Bali food with a homely touch, and his son was a great tour guide when he took us around for a day (despite him humbly insisting that he was nowhere as experienced as his dad). The village compound we stayed at was very relaxing, lots of greenery, room was huge, clean and nicely furnished. The roosters do make themselves heard very morning, but what can I say, it was a truly authentic Bali experience. I would definitely stay with Ketut and family again when I visit Bali again.

  • This was one of the best Airbnb experiences I have ever had. Ketut, his wife Wayan and his sons were easily the biggest reason why my my experience in Bali was as wonderful as it was. I stayed in their family compound for an entire month and truly loved it. Ketut was so attentive to any needs of mine and brought me along to witness things in their community that the regular tourist just wouldn't get to. I have him to thank most especially for this. The room was beautiful and clean and the patio was so lovely to relax on that I found I could spend hours on it. I left sad that I couldn't extend my stay and promising to return. Over the month that I was there Ketut and I were able to become good friends and I hope we will always stay in contact. As a female solo traveler, he and his family helped me feel so safe and so included I felt I was part of the family. This is easily the best homestay you could ask for in Bali, but of course, a homestay is not for everyone. If you want your cable TV and all the comforts of home, go to a hotel. But if you want a garden paradise and beautiful, authentic surroundings that are truly part of Balinese life, with a lovely, generous, attentive and kind family to boot? Then stay with Ketut in Payogan. :)

  • What to say? It was simply the best choice to stay with Ketut. The accomodation offers a lot of space, is lovely furnished and very clean. We have been warmly welcomed right from the beginning. Ketut has enabled us to have a deeper look into the Balinese way of live. We even have been invited to a traditional Balinese wedding which was an amazing expercience that we would have missed in a standard hotel.
    We highly recommend to stay in Ketut's house when visting Ubud.

  • Our stay here was everything we had hoped for. The house we stayed at was amazing and very beautiful. Ketut and his family where really friendly and very helpfull with anything we needed.
    We got a delicious breakfast everyday. And Ketut is also a great tourguide. He took us on a amazing trip around the area which would recommend everyone to do. You really get an experience of the "real" Bali. Ketut also took us to town when we needed, and had a lot of tips about the area and things to do. He helped us with anything we needed for our travels around Bali.
    I can recommand Ketut's place to anyone. We had a great time with a very friendly host!

  • I had a wonderful time staying at Ketut's! The room itself is lovely (and huge!), clean and such a comfortable place for exploring Ubud and the surrounding areas. Ketut and his family are so welcoming and made me feel at home immediately! They were eager to help and answer any questions I had, point me in the direction of interesting things to do and see, and were great company to hang and chat with at the end of a long day :). If you are looking for a fun, relaxing and wonderful place to stay in Ubud, look no further! Thank you Ketut!
