Mulawarman Ubud is arguably the best place to use as a base if you're visiting Bali; if you are looking for culture, comfort, nature and inspiration. Mulawarman is surrounded by most of the things that bring people to Bali - scenic rice fields, small villages, ancient temples, palaces, and amazing restaurants (cheap local Indonesian, raw food, vegan, organic etc.). Our central location in Ubud makes it easy to get to the mountains, beaches, and major towns.
For those who want to discover an "Authentically Balinese" luxury guest-house still preserved from the "tourist invasion" and which, according to the guidebooks, is one of the best places in town, come to Mulawarman. Situated 25 kilometers northeast of Denpasar, Ubud is nestled in the green folds of countryside carpeted with terraced rice fields and carved by deep river gorges. Despite the increase in tourism Ubud conforms the image of being an example of the place where tourism development is harmoniously integrated into the village life.
Guest will have access to the shared reading room upstairs in the main building and a shared eating area. There are no refrigerator in the rooms, but if you need to leave something in the fridge you can use the kitchen fridge.
Interaction with Guests
Ibu Wayan will be at the guest house to greet you or one of her staff. She will also make a delicious breakfast in the morning too for you. So yes, Ibu will be around to help you with anything you might need. Though I should tell you Bali has many Ceremonies all year round, so if Ibu Wayan is gone . She is either preparing for a Ceremony or going to one.
I love my neighborhood because it is quite but, I can easily walk or get a motorbike taxi to go do something. While you're in my neighborhood you should do some yoga at the yoga barn or taksu. Have a massage at one of the many little places....Zen spa is my favorite. Go Antonio Blanco Painting Museum. Of course visit the Ubud Palace go to the temple. Then do some exciting shopping and bargaining at the Ubud Market. Take a balinese cooking class. Have some gelato at Gelato Secrets. Then try to decide where to have dinner.......so many choices so much good food. Where ever you choose to eat don't miss eating at Sari Organic Restaurant in the rice fields this place is great for early sunset dinners and only 10-15min walk from Mulawarman. No Car access to Sari Organic you must walk or motorbike, amazing walk through the rice fields.
You have to go to Monkey forest and visit all the monkeys and please have someone in your group buy bananas. Now get the camera ready because it's going to be funny or a little scary depending on how much you like monkeys running to you and jumping all over you! Also only a 10minute walk from your room is the very hot and very cold baths with regular pool and sauna at the tjampuhan hotel that you can use for a small fee around $7 for the day. Walk down Jalan Monkey forest , that is the name of the main shopping road and there are a lot of restaurants, massages, and shopping on this road.

Its a nice experience staying here.very near ubud central and only walking distance.wayang and all the staff are very helpful and nice.i really love the banana pancake as breakfast.
But no hair dryer in the room.for girls I recommend that you bring hair dryer along.
i will start by saying that all the other reviews about how wonderful and welcoming the host is are accurate. the view from the room at sunrise is beautiful, and the AC works well.
we booked for three nights and only stayed one. other rooms may not be like this, but we booked #2 because so many said it was the best. it is on the second floor with room #1. the ceilings are very tall but the walls do not reach all the way to the top between the rooms or the bathrooms. as a result, you can hear everything from the other room as well as both bathrooms, which is rather unpleasant. in addition, all the sheets were stained, and the mosquito netting, while well intentioned, was filthy on top and had many holes.
i understand it's a homestay, and i've had plenty of good experiences elsewhere in the past, but given the premium price of this room compared to the others, i had higher expectations.
though we had already paid in full via airbnb, i was just not comfortable enough to stay past the first night and felt the need to acquire other accommodations.
Unfortunately staying in Ibu Wayan was a very disappointing experience.
We have booked the room #2 (one of the most expensive ones). Even though the room looks pretty similar to the pictures there is something very strange about it that is not referred in the description.
Basically the wall that divides the room and bathroom does not go all the way up to the roof and both our bathroom and the neighbours bathroom have a kind of open roof! As result... Whenever the neighbour goes to the toilet it is as if he is seated inside our room taking a dump ....
It was really really uncomfortable, a completely lack of privacy! We ended up leaving after the second night because of this.
We loved our stay! Tucked off the main road, this is a great location while staying in Ubud. Ibu Wayan was such a warm and welcoming host. I would recommend hiring Mulawarman for the airport pickup as the guest house would be hard to find at night in a metered cab. Overall, a great experience and value. We are already looking forward to our next stay here!!
Wayan is great host, she remind of me my mom, as she always try to care her guest and treat them as a family. I feel warm welcoming whenever I met Wayan. House itself is bright and view from the room is great, I specially like the sunrise from the terrace. Breakfast is also great even though I only had once due to my morning yoga class, Try pandan pancake! Water pressure is a bit low, which normally happen in Ubud. staff in this house is also very very kind.
Thank You Very Much for Staying with Us and hopefully we could welcoming you again in your next as our Family's, :)
We also would like to say thank you for your review and your suggestion for improvement in this year,we will do batter and the best for our Guest future.
Many Thank and Happy New Year,
Putu Surya and Ibu Wayan Family's
I recently stayed at Mulawarman for an entire month while completing a yoga teacher training and can honestly say it was a WONDERFUL home away from home experience! Wayan and her staff were warm, accommodating, generous and truly like family! They always greeted me with a smile and kind word...and often on my late night returns from class, offered to bring me fruit and/or ginger tea to my room. I was very fortunate to have had such a lovely, above and beyond experience in Ubud!
My room proved to be a true sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city. Beautiful marble floors, antique furniture, a cozy bathroom with tub and an AMAZING view of the rice fields via my terrace. The lighting was perfect, with so much sunlight streaming in, but at night perfectly dark...with only the sounds of tranquility filtering in.
The banana pancakes are a must try!
I also took Wayan up on her offer for laundry service and was pleasantly surprised by how superbly clean and fresh they arrived all 3 times! A wonderful standard at a truly good price!
Internet was a bit off and on, so this was probably the most challenging part of my stay. Most people wouldn't have a problem or need it at all, but since I was needing to email in course work, it was a little tricky.
Overall, my stay was wonderful and I would highly recommend Mulawarman to anyone visiting Ubud! The location near the edge of town (away from all the traffic mid city) was most welcoming and relaxing, offering easy walks to the rice fields....and Wayan's hospitality truly make this a "must stay" location!
I had a great stay at Mulawarman Guesthouse! The room was nice and it is set in a beautiful area. The breakfast was amazing and the staff were very helpful. I did not meet the host personally, as I heard she was ill, but had no problems and there was no need to contact her.
The only negative comment I have is about getting to the actual guesthouse. The narrow walkway is fine during the day, but at night it is very dark and quite scary-especially if you are nightblind! I would recommend the guesthouses in the area get together and maybe install lighting of some sort.
