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.
I love my neighborhood because it is safe and 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.

We hope that all guests can truly relax and enjoy themselves while staying with us in Bali.
Ibu Wayan was very welcoming and kind when we got at the secret hideaway. She offered us coffee and upgraded our room. The location was off the main road but accessible and as the title said hidden which we appreciated because Ubud is quite busy in some parts. The common area also has a lot of charm. The pancakes in the morning were excellent :) . However the room was not as modern as the photos depicted and the bathroom was moldy. The wifi didn't work 3/4 of the time which wasn't convenient at all to plan our trip. Also, Ibu is the only person that speaks english. The staff could not really help us when she was away and thus communication wasn't great. Hopefully Ibu was very helpful and she planned our cycling tour and cooking classes. She also got us really good deals to the Gilis and back. She took such good care of us that we nicknamed her Mama Bali. We would recommend this place because it is a good value deal and it is quiet. However don't expect good wifi to plan your trip.
Thanks Ibu and Ali for taking good care of us! -Julia and Ana
Sorry to break the line of ecstatic comments, but I would not recommend this place for several reasons.
Let’s start with something positive > the place is quiet and the rooms are nice, the staff is friendly, the breakfast in the garden is ok. Now let’s go for the rest.
- COMMUNICATION : We did not get any answer to our Airbnb emails & requests prior and after our arrival. I assume the manager use Airbnb as a booking platform, and nothing more. Don’t expect to get much contact on that side.
- PRICES : I would not recommend to book this place through Airbnb, as you will pay a substantial fee, and a price higher than the local rates. If it’s not high season, have a look first and negotiate de price on the spot if interested.
- ACCESS : The access to the place is a narrow adventurous footpath, following a steep, rocky, dirty road and not lighten at night. This is not a nice stroll to go or come back after a visit in Ubub. Rolling luggages and families are not welcome.
- STAFF : The staff is friendly but underaged and speak a very limited english. The will do their best to help you with your requests tough.
- WIFI : Poor wifi reception from the rooms. We had no wifi at all for 2 days, with absolutely no reasons or apologies given. As it was the 1st of the month, we assumed that they forgot to pay the bill.
- CLEANLINESS : The bedlinen and towels smelled strong and funny. They were not spotless, had a strange sticky touch and the mosquito nest was dirty. We had to ask for toilet paper and soap several times as there were not enough in the room.
- MANAGER : I don’t know what to think about this person. She was absent most of the time and let us deal with the young staff instead. To finish on a good note, she upgraded us in a bigger, brighter room upstairs for the end of our stay, we are grateful for that.
One more advice : double check the rates if she proposes you to book tour / transport / activity for you.
Great stay with Wayan, made me feel very welcome. Breakfast every morning was fantastic, I'm really going to miss those pancakes! The location is great and a torch is given to you so you can find your way back after sunset. Wayan recommended me a great cooking class too. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
Ibu Wayan and her family/staff were so friendly and kind. They were always around when I needed them, Ibu went over and above to make sure I was looked after and taken care of the entire time.
The rooms were comfortable and clean, the breakfast was amazing! Ibu Wayan went and hand picked cinnamon grass to make her special green pancakes. Ive never tried anything like it before! they were delicious! Ibu also upgraded me to the garden view room! So so kind :)
I arrived the day before Nyepi, Balinese new year (where everything was closed), so Ibu Wayan made sure there was enough food (she cooked everything for me in advance ) for me the next day - I am so very grateful. She organised transport whenever I needed it, including airport pick up and drop off at my next destination. I will definitely return and stay with Ibu at the guest house. Its quiet, yet close enough to enjoy ubud! Thank you Ibu! I'll see you again soon :)
I am so happy that we decided to stay with Ibu Wayan. She really helped turn our stay in Ubud to something out of the ordinary.
Ibu Wayan is one of the warmest and friendliest people that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She really went out of her way to make sure that we had an out of the ordinary experience in Ubud. She signed us up for tours at discounted prices (rafting, volcano climbing), arranged a private driver who took us everywhere, helped us out with our laundry, helped my boyfriend to a nearby doctor when he needed antibiotics and lent us umbrellas and flashlights whenever we were heading out in the rain or the darkness.
But what I will remember the most is when Ibu Wayan invited us into her family home and her family temple and let us see how she and her entire family performed a yearly religious ceremony. It was an amazing experience and both my boyfriend and I have rarely felt so welcomed into another family's home (and we had only known Ibu Wayan for 2 days!). Ibu Wayan opened up both her heart and home to us and it was really hard to say goodbye when it was time for us to continue with our travels.
The accommodation is located by a small river/stream 5 minutes away from central Ubud. The area is quiet with rice fileds and nature just around the corner. Some of the best rice field walk paths as well as the highly appreciated restaurant Sari Organic are literally just around the corner.
The accommodation is as described in the pictures. When we arrived we even got a free upgrade to one of the bigger rooms on the upper floor with an amazing view (stay in Room 2 if you get the chance). The rooms are all equipped with well functioning AC which is a must if you expect to get a good nights sleep in Bali.
Every morning we got a big breakfast with tea/coffee, banana pancakes (to die for) and fresh fruit. A perfect way to gain some energy before starting to explore Ubud.
I would definitely stay with Ibu Wayan if I ever come back to Ubud. Even though we only spent 5 days at her place I will always think of Mulawarman as my Bali home and Ibu Wayan as my Bali family.
Thank you so much and see you soon again.
Staying with Wayan was nice. She took time to explain us about the Balinese culture and this was interesting. The place looks good and is quite clean. It is a short walk to the rice fields and the city center.
Only negative point about this place is there is no swimming pool and the access to the place is a long 10min walk on a narrow path in the middle of nowhere. If you only carry backpacks that's fine. I do recommend to stay there for a few nights.
Ibu Wayan is one of the most welcoming and warm people I have come across. She did her best to ensure that I am comfortable during my stay. While I didn't get to stay there long, I really enjoyed meeting Ibu Wayan and the neighborhood has beautiful rice fields to see and was very central to the rest of Ubud. Thank you for a beautiful experience!
