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.

Payogan Homestay is absoluut een aanrader om te verblijven. Mooie ligging iets buiten het drukke ubud centrum. Bij aankomt werden wij erg goed ontvangen, we waren erg vroeg maar dat was geen enkel probleem. De kamer is echt fantastisch, foto's liegen niet.
Ketut was a very welcoming host. We were able to check straight into our room which was very spacious, clean, tidy and comfortable. Payogan is a very peaceful place with a lovely outside seating area to enjoy the garden. The breakfasts are delicious. The best banana pancakes we have ever had.
Great room in a family compound. Spacious, clean, relaxed atmosphere. Ketut and is family are very helpful and welcoming.
If you do not care to be close to Ubud center and don't mind hiring a taxi/bike each time you want to get there, it's a perfect place for you.
It's great value for what it is (cleanliness, size of the room), but a little pricey if you consider the location.
Ketut and his family are absolutely amazing. They instantly and consistently treated me like family. My first morning, I opened my door and heard Ketut say, "Good Morning, Kristel. Are you hungry?" I mean really!?! How amazing. The breakfast was great and everyday it was served with kindness and within minutes of me stepping out of my amazing room.
The compound is something out of this world. I've never seen so many plants and trees in my life! It was such a joy walking throughout the compound. I slept great and woke up with a beautiful view out of each of my TWENTY windows!
I felt so welcomed as a solo female traveller and super safe. I never even locked my door when I left, with Ketut and his family...I really didn't have to.
Ubud is a bit of a walk from the compound and thank God it is! It's so hectic in the town center. My Bali was the serene beauty captured by Ketut and his family. Have him take you to his friend's rice terraces they are remarkable. Ketut and his family are my Bali and I truly miss them. Saying goodbye was so hard, I cried as if I was leaving family. I cannot wait to get back to Payogan and see my family! I will definitely be back. I documented my stay on my Instagram: Littlemsjetsetter.
Payagon Homestay is such an amazing place. From the moment their son picked me up from the airport, I felt completely relaxed. When I arrived, the room was perfect. Clean, beautiful, just like the pictures, and the family were on call for anything you need. I was travelling by myself and they helped me get around the area and see the amazing spots with no hassle or ridiculous prices. I would recommend this place to everyone. It is about a half hour walk to Ubud centre but it's easy to get a lift or hire a scooter. I hope you enjoy this place as much as me, it was very sad to say goodbye. Thank you Ketut, Ma Eda and Ma De and Ofcourse mumma for the amazing pancakes. See you again I hope x
Ketut is a warm, friendly and professional host. Ketut reaponded quick so we could sleep at his wunderfull big condo downstairs which has everything you need and more. Big furniture, an outdoor shower with hot and cold water, a fridge, a louge, a place to store and hang your clothes, a veranda etc etc. The pictures are almost exact but reality is a bit better. Ketuts family and staff are wunderfull please take the time to get to know them and you will find livelong friends. Get one of his sisters accupuncture or accupressureassages and one of his brothers paintings. We went with his son Wayan to a daytrip to see the vulcano, waterfall, elephant Temple, ricefields and the water Temple to do a purification. Absolutely wunderfull trip. The village is in great distance from monkeyforest, yoga barn, botanical day spa, bliss spa, Ubud center with all stoers ams restaurants and Bintang supermarket. We rented his scooter with helm and raincoats for only 5 USD a day.
The rooms are really big, and we moved upstairs to prolong our stay with two extra nights. We had some issues with the bank getting cash, so we where able to transfer the additional cost to Ketuts account.
The breakfast as you probably read before is to die for....I just don't get why nobody else in Bali is serving this...
The surronding of the appartements ia really wunderfull with a lush garden and a beautiful temple. Don't mind all the beautiful and loud animals like spiders, roosters, dogs, frogs, goose, ducks, cats, geckos etc. Just bring your earplugs. We highly reccomend Ketuts place and we will definately be back!
Vi ankom sent om aftenen til Ketuts ejendom, men da vi ankom var Ketut stadig vågen og gav os en varm velkomst. Næste morgen fik vi en lækker morgenmad, som bestod af en balinesisk pandekage, en omelet, friske frugter og juice. Han viste os derefter rundt på hans ejendom, som er fyldt med smukke eksotiske planter og hinduistiske figurer. Vi fik yderligere udleveret et kort over Ubud, i tilfælde af, at vi skulle fare vild.
Lejligheden og billederne stemmer overens. Den er stor og flot. Dog var badekarret gået i stykker.
Ketuts ejendom er ca. 45 min. gågang fra centrum. Men det kan anbefales at leje en scooter, som koster ca. 60.000 rupiah pr. dag ($6). Trafikken kan godt være hektisk i centrum, men lidt udenfor centrum er det (email hidden) på scooter, da der er mindre trafik.
Ketuts søn Wayan er chauffør, og vi lærte ham godt at kende da han tog os på dagudfulgter for $50 til forskellige smukke steder, bl.a. risterasser, vandfald og templer. Han er meget venlig og altid hjælpsom, og det kan anbefales at tage på dagudflugter med ham.
Vi boede der i 5 dage og var meget tilfredse. Det eneste minus var at badekarret var gået i stykker, og nogle insekter, hvilket ikke kan undgås på Bali. Ketut hjalp os også med transport tur retur til Gili øerne til en rimelig pris.
