About this listing
Far from the tourist traps of Bali and located in a lush garden overlooking the rice fields. Truly a slice of paradise to get away from it all.
A peaceful slice of paradise at the foot of Mount Agung.
Kubu Carik: literally translated: A hut in the rice fields.
Nestled in an oasis of green, overlooking the rice fields, Kubu Carik (pronounced Kubu Charik) offers a secluded retreat from the crowds. Everything you will need to escape from it all.
Private bungalows with each its own balcony overlooking the endless rice fields at the foot of the majestic volcano Gunung Agung. Here at Kubu Carik the outdoors meets the indoors with all the open spaces like our dining area adn living area.
Even from our fresh water pool you can enjoy the endless view.
Probably one of Bali's best kept secrets in the East of Bali.
Our pool is open to all guests - enjoy the cooling water and the amazing view of the rice fields at the same time.
Interaction with Guests
Every guest is treated as a friend with whom we would like to share all we know of Bali.
Kadek will treat you to home cooked Balinese meals or if you prefer he can prepare some amazing hamburgers!
Every one is either included in our daily life here (including impromptu parties) or left to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the East of Bali.
I speak English, Indonesian, German, Dutch and a little bit of French.
Besides extensive exploring of the rice fields right on our door step there are plenty of interesting places to visit in Karangasem. Just ask us and we will gladly help.
Trek the many stairs of the Lempuyang temple, visit the cooling pools of Tirtagangga, step back in time in the Royal Palace in Amlapura or see how we shop for everything you can imagine in Amlapura.
A beautiful white sand beach is only short drive from our place or you might want to go snorkeling in Amed?
We can assist you with scooter rental or a driver with a car. For those more adventurous we can arrange a local "bemo" (mini bus).
Other Things to Note
Breakfast is included in the room rate and includes fresh home baked bread, home made jams and real butter! If the weather permits I might bake some fresh buttery croissants.
We offer cooking classes where you will learn about the Balinese cuisine and the ingredients. Depending on availability/season you will search our vast garden for vegetables and spices like banana flowers and tumeric etc. Kadek will show you how to mix the spices and prepare a delicious Balinese meal.
There are dogs and cats on the premises. All are house pets and part of the family here. Our dogs provide security - no one can enter our premises without being announced. Our cats are great for pest control. Please note that if you are allergic or fearful of animals to let us know in advance.
We are trying to set an example in our area - please re-use your water bottles and try to reduce waste. If you need a shopping bag let us know!
Smoking is not permitted in the bedrooms. Each bungalow has it's own private balcony where you may smoke.
Respect others and your environment!
Grew up in South East Asia - mainly Indonesia, which is why I had to come back. I like to share what I know about Indonesia and why I love it there.
Hosting guests is a passion - whether it is great food, long discussions about life in Asia or showing my favorite places in the area - you will be treated as visiting friends.
