Our stay at Wayan's was such a lovely experience. Though the village is located some distance away from Ubud central, we appreciated its tranquility and very homely atmosphere. As many have testified, Ayu's cooking is unsurpassed! The flavours trump anything that you'd get outside, and you dine together with other travellers staying at their place. They are such a wonderful couple, and always made sure that we had everything. You'll certainly feel well taken care of, and be sure to try the in-house massage.
Wayan and his family were a delight to be with during our stay on Bali. We were able to see the real Bali, the one away from the tourist trade, without sacrificing comfort. The villas are beautiful and Wayan definitely has a "green thumb" when it comes to his garden. If you go be sure to walk up into the small, family owned rice farms. Very beautiful. Thanks also to Ayu for her wonderful cooking and always pleasant and upbeat character. Oh yes, don't miss out on the fabulous massage and the personal yoga class. Thank you Wayan and Ayu for being wonderful hosts.
To begin our trip in Indonesia, we stayed 3 nights in Wayan's guesthouse and it was really the best way to be introduced to this wonderful island and country.
Wayan and his family are really nice, thoughtful and always smily. We felt at home after only 5 minutes we joined them and we were a part of the family in the daily life. We cannot imagine another way to learn and feel the balinese culture. We will always remember those peaceful moments drinking coffee, have long chats together, enjoying the nature or share the delicious meal of his lovely wife Ayu.
If you are looking for a true glimpse and a real experience of the balinese life, it is definitely THE place to be. The bungalows are quiet, very comfortable, crystal clean and the outside shower made of volcanic stones and plants is just perfect. It's an oasis of tranquility where time stops and the dream begins.
As far as we are concerned, we can't wait to go back to visit our friends and stay longer with them this time.
Thank you so much Wayan, Ayu, Agus and Anta (... and Fido) !!!

You will feel immediately at home here with Wayan's warm and welcoming family. The gardens are gorgeous and, amongst the sounds of cockerels, birds, frogs, insects and even the neighbour's snorting pigs, you'll be transported into another world.
There are 3 villas at Wayan's with a shared table in the dining area where you'll make new friends and enjoy Ayu's great cooking.
Breakfast is complimentary and the rooms are serviced on most days. The outdoor shower is great and the villa is spacious. Massage is also available at your villa.
The 1 day tour with Wayan is most definitely recommended. Get him to take you down to the lake in the village for a swim too. It was a wonderful experience. If you like, you can go see the local healer.
Overall, this is an experience that you'll never find in a hotel. You'll leave with wonderful experiences and new friends.
Absolutely fantastic staycation!!!
I brought my friend over for her surprise birthday trip. Wayan and Ayu was there all the time to help me with planing and everything else. You simply cannot hope for a better host! They catered to our every need, suggested and organised daily activities for us and the meals were all so delicious!!! Ayu I love you!!! <333
The birthday dinner was utterly amazing. The view to the rice paddie was stunning, we were surrounded by fireflies and the beautiful full moon. Awesome night, awesome dinner specially prepared and we couldnt have asked for any more than this.
Absolutely the best homestay experience ever!! =))) thank you so much!!
We had such a lovely time with Wayan and his family. They are the perfect hosts to provide an unforgettable stay. We had some problems during our stay but Ayu and Wayan raised the bar and made us feel at home. The villas are clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is delicious (we love the balinese coffee) and Ayu's cooking is incredible. They organised a tour around the area, and Madi, our driver, is so kind and friendly. If you are looking to have a truly balinese experience, this is the place! Thank you again. Marta &Nano
WOW! Es war die beste Entscheidung, die wir treffen konnten, als wir uns bei Wayan und seiner Familie untergebracht haben. Die Unterkunft war toll, das Essen war toll aber unvergesslich war das Zusammensein mit allen Suetas. Ob es der gemeinsame Reisfeldspaziergang war, die gemeinsamen Ausflüge mit Wayan und den Kids, das gemeinsame Zusammensein am Abend, die vielen UNO Spielrunden (wo wir gegen die Kids keine Chance hatten ^^ ) und noch mehr. Wir wurden Teil dieser wunderbaren Familie und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen, wann immer das sein mag.
WOW! It was the best decision we could have made, as we have accommodated us with Wayan and his family. The bungalow was great, the food was delicious but It was memorable, to be with the Suetas. Whether it was the common rice field walk, joint trips with the kids and Wayan, the joint together in the evening, playing UNO with all (where we had no chance against the kids :) ) and more. We were part of this wonderful family and look forward to seeing you again, whenever that may be.

Although my stay at Wayan's was short , it was never the less very pleasant. The cottage was modern and clean, surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and folliage. The out door shower was truly delightful. I met 2 couples that were staying there and it made my stay more fun as I was travelling alone; as they say the more the merrier. The food was also excellent. It is about 25 minutes drive from Ubud centre. Location wise, it is a strategic place to be base at if you are planning to venture and explore the outdoors. This place is highly recommendable.
The accommodation is first class and Wayan and his family are great hosts. Wayan's wife, Ayu, is a great cook, too! You get more than what you paid for. A truly memorable experience! Special mention also for Mede, Wayan's right hand man. A truly humble and great guide.
