About this listing
Experience authentic, Balinese life. The Payogan Homestay - Centre Suite is located within our traditional, Balinese family compound, a 20 minute walk away from Ubud.
The room is compact but well-appointed, with a clean and contemporary style complemented by Balinese accents. You will wake up to the traditional sounds of Bali and experience the essence of staying in a Balinese village.
The space is perfect for two people and includes a bedroom with a double bed, a kitchenette, a private bathroom, and small front terrace. The kitchenette includes a fridge, sink and stove, and is perfect for preparing easy meals or snacks. The bathroom includes a shower with hot water only a turn of the tap away. The in-suite air conditioning will keep you comfortably cool on warm Balinese nights.
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.

Had an amazing time and experience staying here. They were able to provide transport for us from our previous location/hotel for a reasonable fee. In addition to picking us up they showed us a number of different sites on the drive over! The room was simple and in a beautiful setting! Breakfasts was provided and was absolutely delicious, the banana pancakes his wife makes are to die for. The family is very welcoming and is willing to help with just about thing, transport, showing you around the town, food, you name it. It's a nice change of pace from the typical hotel and would highly recommend staying here!
We had a lovely stay at Ketut's guesthouse. Him and his family were very welcoming and his son took us out on a trip to Gunung Kawi and showed us some sights on the way for a reasonable price. We didn't get to immerse ourselves as much as we were often out and about but Ketut and his family were all ready with a welcoming smile and made it feel like home.
Ketut made us feel welcome from when we first arrived and put us in an amazing room with a great outdoor bathroom. The whole villa is great, private and relaxing. It was a fair walk from town (or a cheap taxi), but we didnt mind being in a quieter spot. Ketut's son Wayan took us on a half day tour all around Ubud which was great, and when we were too tired to go out, they were able to order home delivery dinner for us! Would happily visit again
Ketut's generous hospitality began from the minute his son Made picked us up from Nusa Dua. We were invited to join the family in the village ceremony once we arrived, a spontaneous and unique experience. The generosity continued when Ketut shared valuable medical supplies after a motorbike accident! The ride to town is 10 minutes if you brave the motorbike or ask for a ride. There are also restaurants like Fly Cafe and Fusion Cafe five minutes walk away. We highly recommend Payogan Homestay for a genuine experience!
Our stay at Ketut's home was fabulous!!! Actually we weren't staying in this room because Ketut was so kind to give us a bigger one. He and his family made us experience the real balinese life. You live in the middle of the family property. We also had the chance to join him and his family at a big ceremony (kuningan). He took us to the temples and showed and explained everything. That was a one of our best experiences during our trip to Bali.
To get to ubud you will need a taxi or someone from Ketut's family can drive you (for about 50000idr) because it takes ~30min to walk to the center of the town.
The room was not as bright/good as on the pictures but still ok.
But for those who want to get to know the culture and the people from Bali we would definitely recommend to stay at Ketut's homestay!!! We would stay here again.
It was wonderful to stay at Ketut's guesthouse. He and his family were very friendly and helpful. They do the transportation service with very reasonable price. Room is tidy & clean and beautiful!! Location is enough close to go to the central town, so if you want to avoid noisy central Ubud, I recommend you to stay Payogan Homestay!!
Ketut welcomed us warmely into his house when we arrived. We had a lovely room in the middle of his amzing garden. Its very authentic and the breakfast is great!
