  • Wayan has a lovely place. It is in a quieter village, very close to Ubud, but without the tourists and hustle and bustle. He made a fantastic breakfast, let us rent his scooter and was always very quick and happy to answer any of our questions. A delight to stay and would do again.

  • I only spend 2 nights with I Wayan's family but I can assure you that you will love the hospitality of the entire family. The room is superb as well as the meals prepared and served!
    I will never forget my stay here!
    Thank you

  • Weed and his family are so inviting and friendly! We were invited to watch a movie at his local 'movie theater' in the back of his store 2 mins from the family complex. We ate all our meals here and they were home made by his mother and wife, so amazing! The kids are so cute too! We bought them ice cream as a treat, they really like that :)
    The rooms our on the second floor of a private building. So lots of privacy, but saying that, you are living with a family. You get this great gaziboo to which we read in alot.
    We were also very lucky to be there when a ceremony in the village was going on and Weed dressed us up and went with us. So amazing, one of the best experiences of my life.
    Going back in a week to finish our Bali trip!

  • Weed and his family are very wonderful and gracious hosts. Weed's daughter was just a few days old when he hosted me and despite the fatigue of being a new parent, he and his family made sure that my needs were attended to. It was my first time to travel alone abroad and I am so glad that I chose Weed as my host. I didn't have an itinerary and Weed patiently helped me plan my week with them. He also drove me around and made sure I got to see the nice spots in Bali.
    The home was clean and well-maintained. The atmosphere was really relaxing and the balcony allows for meditation. I also appreciated the family atmosphere in their compound. They prepared traditional Balinese meals for me. His Mother and Sister (Komang) taught me how to make offerings and took me to the temples to pray, lending me traditional Balinese clothes. His wife, Nanda, was also very lovely company and she let me play with baby Gita.
    His father allowed me to help in polishing his wood carvings and even lent me his bike so I can cycle to Ubud. Komang and her boyfriend Ardy, also took me to Sindhu beach on their scooters. On my last night, I hung out with Weed's family. Rika, his niece, danced traditional Balinese dances for us. I also jammed with Weed's childhood friends who are excellent musicians. When I left, his father gave me a unique and beautiful wooden sculpture as gift.
    The tranquility of the place and the warmth of the people really made my experience unforgettable. Despite the language barrier, I really felt their kindness and sincerity. Thanks Weed and family for the wonderful memories!

  • My wife and I were looking for a room…. and got a home! The love and care we received while staying at Wayan’s place was absolutely priceless! The host and his family treated us like one of their own and we felt very safe and taken care of throughout our whole stay. The night we arrived, Wayan had just become a father, yet he still took the time to drive us to a warung where we could have a vegetarian dinner and he answered all our questions patiently. (If we had known earlier that he and his wife just got a baby, we wouldn’t have asked for all this…).

    The typical housing in balinese villages consists of a compound with smaller buildings, so when you live at Wayan’s place, you will experience exactly that original atmosphere. The family is doing traditional wood-carving which is adding in the most charming way to the authentic feeling. We were amazed by all the statues and more than once I sat down next to one of the family members, watching speechlessly how they performed their artistic handicraft.

    The room we rent belongs to a roof-area, which is perfect for meditation. Everything was very clean and well-maintained. In the mornings, they served us breakfast and if we wished so, also lunch. Wayan organised a scooter for us and took time to share some information on nearby attractions, such as Goa Gajah - the famous Elephant Cave, Gunung Kawi, Tirta Empul and the waterfall in Tegenungan village. Ask him about these places and he will tell you how to get there. Don't forget to ask Wayan also to help you renting a scooter.

    The highlight of our stay however, was the family itself. When we expressed interest to visit the temple in the village in order to witness a spiritual ceremony, the whole family was involved at getting us ready: Wayan’s aunt prepared a sacrificial fruit offering, Wayan’s mother searched through her wardrobe for some appropriate dresses for my wife and his father did a similar job, dressing me up in a traditional manner, so we would blend-in well with the local people. We will never forget that night and my wife and I are deeply thankful for the honour of participating in this.

    We felt without any doubt that Wayan and his family were truly concerned about our well-being. One morning we found a small offering on our scooter, which was meant to invoke blessings for our safe trip with this bike.

    Matur Suksma Wayan!

  • I couldn't have asked for a better start on my Balinese experience. Living in a small village in a homestay is a great way to get introduced to the culture. I was lucky to arrive as to experience the lovely Nyepy and the days prior, which made my stay even more beatifull. Wayan and his familly are great host and they do anything to make you feel comfortable and to include you in their familly. I can only recommend to stay with Wayan. The location being a bit secluded gave me time to aclimatize to the weather and Balinese time zone. Overall an amazing experience.

    April 2014
  • First off, Wayan is a fantastic host who is always around to help out with just about anything you need- food, towels, drinks, rides, rentals, activities, you name it. He is very friendly and genuine. He just opened a cafe/mart/cinema across the street from his house, and you can pick up fruit juices or a quick meal there as well as basics like snacks, beer, toiletries. You can even sit down in his private cinema suite with cushioned chairs and a selection of around 100+ films to view on his large flat screen TV with surround sound.

    The bedroom is decent, a small fan to circulate the air and cool you off just enough, but no windows to open. The bed was clean, big, and firm. There is a nice cabinet/shelf with a mirror for those who wish to unpack a little while they stay.

    However. The bathroom is downstairs underneath the stairs and it is shared. The bathroom is probably 6 cubic feet total, where a shower and manual flush toilet share the space with a faucet to replenish the flushing water. Also, there is no sink and no mirror in the bathroom. No towel rack, just a small hook on the back of the door.

    The worst part about the bathroom is the shower head isn't even really a shower head, it's basically an open pipe high on the wall. The shower is located directly in front of the toilet- yes, directly in front of it, as in your feet will be in the dirty pool of water from the shower of whoever was in there last because the drain is poorly located and there is no getting around it in this unfortunately disgusting bathroom. I'm sorry to say that between the food and the lack of sanitation in the bathroom, both my wife and I got sick during our short 4 day stay at Wayan's. Yes, it's possible that our illness came from another source, but I can tell you with heavy certainty that I have never been so uncomfortable having to deal with rushing up and down a flight of stairs to use this disappointing bathroom when nature calls from both ends... I much prefer the bathrooms that were at other homes we had stayed in.

    One last thing, and this is IMPORTANT! Make sure you discuss cost for the meals and rides and everything that Wayan is providing for you beforehand, as we were very surprised and disappointed with the outrageous amount we owed at the end of our stay. We weren't shown a receipt or breakdown of cost either. Even when we didn't ask for breakfast his mother had made us some eggs and toast (which was very kind) but we felt severely over-charged.

    I can confidently say that I recommend Wayan as a host, but I would NOT recommend his house simply for the poor conditions listed. We stayed at many nicer places in Bali for much less cost.

  • Om Swastiastu,

    I stayed with Wayan and his family in early March 2014 for a few nights, it was the most amazing experience I've had in Bali. I requested to stay at Wayan's to experience the Balinese life and to sample the rich culture it has to offer and I was not disappointed.

    I arrived at Wayan's on 1st March 2014 which was a day of Tilem and within a few minutes of arriving, Ibu Larni (Wayan's mother) invited me to accompany her to the Pura Desa Kemenuh to pray. The experience was priceless and Ibu Larni even took the time to explain all the rituals and even introduced me to her friends. [ Throughout your stay here you will be known to the rest of the villagers as "tamu" (the guest).]

    I enjoyed the hours I have spent just observing your father's ( Pak Nyoman Sudiana) skills in wood carving and was left in awe of the intricate works of your father found all throughout the house. Thank you to your lovely wife and his brother Putu for taking the time to take me to the Kemenuh Waterfall, it was such an amazing view. Thank you Wayan for letting me stay at your beautiful house and for introducing me to your lovely family.

    I would recommend anyone who wishes to savour an authentic Balinese experience to stay at Wayan's. Wayan and his family will treat you like a family member of your own and will go all out to make your stay a pleasant one. Ibu Larni is an amazing cook and for a fee you can arrange for your meals to be prepared by her (Btw, Wayan is vegetarian) or you could also head over to Wayan's purple warung just about a few metres down the road and ask Wayan's sister, Komang to prepare the tastiest Mee Goreng and fresh juice in Desa Kemenuh.

    Initially, Wayan was my host but then he turned into a friend. I am definitely coming back to visit/stay with them.

    p/s: Send my regards to little Wayan Mudhiarta and please give Kimmi the longest belly rub she ever had.

    Nyanan tiang lakar ke ditu. Matur suksma.

About
Hi, I'm Wayan Widnyana. I live in Kemenuh in East Ubud, with my family of wood carvers. One interesting thing about me is that I worked for 8 years in the US as Japanese Chef! I am happy to be back with my family in Bali and with my beautiful new bride. I have several different types of accommodation available, from private, luxury villas to rooms in my own home where you can experience the authentic Balinese way of life. Come learn wood carving and Balinese cooking with my family and help prepare for a Saraswati or Galungan ceremony with us. Or take a bicycle ride around our village to see the beautiful rice paddies and Petanu river. Definitely, you will leave with many cherished memories and new friends! Salamat Datang de Bali! Wid
