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 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.
Getting around is very easy in Ubud.
You can walk , get a motorbike taxi or car taxi.
We can help you rent a motorbike or car if you like. If you would like a day tour we can arrange that with driver. We can also pick you up from the airport if you like for a charge of rp.350,000 one-way.

We hope that all guests can truly relax and enjoy themselves while staying with us in Bali.
Perfect little hideaway! Tucked in the rice paddies less than minutes from the Ubud central market place! Quite without the sound of the street traffic but a short walk from all the action of the city. Ibu Wayan is so kind and helpful! She helped me plan a private day tour for far less than what is being offered with the street venders. Also arranged for me to do some white water rafting, a must, so fun! The room was great and I had a wonderful experience at my stay at Mulawarman! Highly recommended!
Ibu is a very sweet lady that picked me up along with her husband at the airport. The room was clean, quite and centrally located in Ubud. I would recommend this stay in Bali without a doubt.
She is nice. And the breakfast is delicious.
Dear CN, We are glad you enjoyed the breakfast Ibu Wayan loves to cook. We are working on getting some brighter lights in the room, but since we are set in a lush jungle area with lots of greens and a ravine next to us, it can be dark at times. We will work on that. Happy Traveling, Ibu Wayan and Family.
Our short stay was fantastic and we wish we could stay longer. Ibu is an extremely nice, friendly and helpful person. Her pankaces are legendary and whole breakfast was very tasty. She even prepared us delicious breakfast at 5.30 AM when we were leaving Ubud. Although I have been far away from home for around a month I was feeling cozy and Mulawarman has for sure a homey atmosphere. I was feeling someone took care of me. It is because of Ibu and a magic of this place. Ibu is doing all her best to make her guests feel comfy. Mulawarman is located 3 minutes from the centre of Ubud but is hidden in a little jungle so it's calm and quiet. The room was clean and lovely decorated. We had a jungle view, so we were feeling like we we lived in a jungle forest. All night we could hear all the forests sounds , like orchestra and it was relaxing. It is also located very near to Ubud's most famous rice terraces. We would definietly recommend this place.
Dear Anna, Thank you so much for such an amazing review. We really feel the same way about our guest house. Ibu Loves her pancakes! Glad you did too! Ibu Wayan treats her guests like family , so once you have stayed with her you are family. You were both such a kind guests and you have such a big hearts. Please come back and visit us again. Happy Traveling, Ibu Wayan and Tracy
She is a heart-warming host.
Upon arrival, I was welcomed by her friendly and family-like hospitality.
Before check in, communication is prompt and exact.
All replies came back within 30 mins and were with no misunderstandings.
The location is still and peaceful. Birds, crickets and frogs are singing outside. However, it is a little difficult to find the way.
Thanks to the hill area, the temperature is not high. It is very comfortable without air conditioner.
Bath towels were exchanged everyday.
The room is same as a picture on Airbnb but a little dark.
Mosquito net is equipped.
She lent me a flash light for coming back at night.
If you love humble and nature-friendly accommodation, I can recommend here to you.
Dear Yoshinori, Thank you for your review. Ibu Wayan treats her guests like family. So you are welcome back anytime. I am sorry you did not get hand soap. We usually have hand soap and i will make sure to stock up on hand soap. Happy Traveling, Ibu Wayan and Tracy
My best place in Bali ! Very quiet and peaceful place just near of the busy Ubud. The room was clean with a lovely decoration. Ibu was a very wonderful hostess. She recommends me the best place to eat, walk and discover Ubud and around. And off course, she prepares the best banana pancakes every morning !
Thank you for the wonderful Review. Ibu Wayan treats her guests like family , so once you have stayed with her you are family. You were such a kind guests and you have such a big heart. Please come back and visit us again. Happy Traveling, Ibu Wayan and Tracy
Mulawarman, my second home in Bali. Ibu Wayan made sure we remember this when we met her. She is very accommodating, as well as her staff; she herself and her husband took us to Kuta when we checked out! The location is convenient—walking distance to all the great places to visit but "hidden" enough to escape all the fuss. The pancake for breakfast is a must-try in Ubud! Definitely enjoyed meeting Ibu and staying in her place. :)
