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.

주인 아주머니가 너무 따뜻하고 친절하게 맞아줬어요. 픽업해주실때도(심지어 비행기가 한시간이나 딜레이) 웃으며 지친기색없이 친절했어요.숙소 위치는 생각한 것보다 조금 안쪽이여서 밤이 되면 괜히 무서웠는데 전화하면 큰 길까지 마중나와주세요. 주인아주머니는 따로 사는 곳이 있고 숙소에는 2교대로 지키는 사람이 있어요. 아침에 웃으면서 인사하고 소박하지만 맛있는 조식을 잊지못할 것같아요. 방도 업그레이드해주시고 너무 좋아요
Thank you for the nice review, Ibu Wayan also really enjoyed your company. She thought of you as her daughter, super sweet. Sorry if you were a little scared , we are set on top of the ravine , so it is lush with plants and can get dark. Don't forget we have flashlights for the walk to borrow also , for your next trip to see us.
Take care and Happy Traveling,
Mulawarman is a home away from home, surrounded by lush greens and padi fields within sight. This homey place is tucked away from the hustle and bustle yet not too far away from the main street and sights. It is made even special by Ibu Wayan Londri, her amazing cooking, big smile and motherly care, I could not ask for a better stay in Ubud. I already miss you so much Ibu! Take care until we meet again ya!
Ibu Wayan Londri est une hôte exceptionnelle : très sympathique, arrangeante, disponible quand il le faut, et très à l'écoute de ses hôtes et de leurs moindres désirs.
Le logement est à l'écart du centre ville qui est très bruyant. On se retrouve en pleine nature, à l'écart du tumulte; seuls les animaux restent audibles pendant la nuit. On vit en harmonie complète avec la nature et le réveil se fait lors du lever du soleil. Un rêve.
Le service est top ! Chambre refaite chaque jour, deux bouteilles d'eau à votre disposition, des fleurs partout disposées sur les toilettes, sur le lit, sur les meubles. Le linge est régulièrement changé. Le top du top, le petit-déjeuner servi entre 7 et 11 (website hidden) surtout pas manquer les pancakes à la banane qu'Ibu fait elle-même. Trop bonnes, sinon les toasts grillés avec un oeuf dessus, plus une pleine assiette de fruits frais (ananas, mangue, pastèque choisis et murs à point), puis café ou thé. On est bien calé et on tient bien jusqu'au soir ! Le trio Wayan, Madé et Oka (3 garçons) gère la location durant la journée et la nuit : très serviables, hyper gentils, ils veillent sur vous nuit et jour car Ibu Wayan n'habite pas sur place et ne vient que le matin.
Idéal pour une femme seule (comme moi). On se sent en sécurité tout le temps.
First and foremost, Ibu Wayan upholds her expressed philosophy that Muluwarman is your home, and that you are like family during your stay.
Her staff met us along the road to help us carry our bags along the creek to the home stay. We were welcomed with complementary fresh juice and coffee upon arrival (and throughout our stay). And Ibu Wayan herself prepared a delightful and generous meal in celebration of or friend's birthday (she went so far as to pick up a birthday cake for us!).
The room was tidy and welcoming, and we felt cozy both in or room as well as in the garden sit-down area. The atmosphere is very serene.
Though the home stay is at the edge of main street (a bit of a walk - 15-30 minutes - from where the main activity in Ubud is), it has the great advantage of being asking the river as well as the extremely beautiful rice terrace. Several mornings I jogged just behind the home stay, entering a several-kilometer scenic path through the green paddies. A gem spot to watch sunset above Ubud, too.
Being that the home stay is amidst so much nature and greenery, it is expected that the space will be shared with a few extra critters, not nothing more than ants and mosquitoes. But not to fret, mosquito spray is in ample supply.
Ibu Wayan and the peaceful and aesthetically pleasant atmosphere of Muluwarman made our stay really delightful.
Hidden away beside a river is this lovely little b n b where you are made to feel part of the family. Ibu Wayan is a warm, welcoming hostess who really wants you to treat her place as your place. Her breakfasts are legendary and the dinner she cooked for 4 of us one nights was a 'degustation' of sorts, with many small delicious courses - I felt guilty leaving some but there was just too much too eat! Rather though than staying at #5, I stayed at #3 as there was a mix up over my booking not quite as private as I expected but a beautiful room with a lovely bathroom with dappled light flowing in... beautiful...
Mularwarman is a great stay in Ubud. Wayan is one of the most friendly and lovely persons we have ever met and we got a great time with her! She threated us like family members and not as customers with her warm and welcoming smile and we had a lot of Fun. The trip to a traditional balinese Dance night and a diner and her sister was a remarkable evening which we would never forget. The place itself is clean with good ac and a really comfortable bed. The staff is really friendly and can help you a lot - the Text messaging at airbnb is with tracy the "left hand" of wayan who helped us a lot with finding a perfect trip to the gilis. The answers where always quick and perfectly on point. Mularwarman is hidden in the riece fields just 10 min walk to the city of ubud (bring a flashlight as it will get dark on the road!) and perfectly calm and quiet. You wont hear any noise from the city just a lot of birds and such stuff. The breakfast is great (i have to mention the green pancakes cause they are really really good!) and wayan is an awesome cook (try out her cooking class) and a splendid host. We loved the chatting with the other guest (greetz to Lindsay, Shaun an Mary!) and will surely come back on our next trip.
Mulawarman Guest house was wonderful. It MADE our stay in Ubud. Truthfully, though, it was Ibu Wayan who made our stay at the Mulawarman comfortable and pleasant.
I must say, at first, being hardened by American lack-of-hospitality, I thought that Wayan was playing the role of a kind, loving, second-mother type. I was wrong. She is genuinely one of the most loving people I have ever met…and it shows. She is the reason why I would recommend staying here, her love and hospitality actually permeated the overall experience we had in Ubud, making me sad to leave.
The room: Part of the way through our stay, we were upgraded to a bigger room that did not have tenants currently booked. That made a big difference in our overall satisfaction. What I will say for the rooms are that they both met our standards, but, if possible, you want to book the larger rooms…they are much worth the slight increase in price…they have a lot more room, and include a bathtub.
But seriously, I am SO HAPPY we stayed here. Wayan was a gracious hostess, offering us smoothies upon arrival, and talking with us about the guesthouse. Also, we took in a traditional fire dance performance across town-- Wayan's husband and one of the young men that works at the guesthouse drove us, free of charge, to the location. We chose to walk back, giving us a chance to grab some nighttime gelato on the main strip.
At the guesthouse there was a wonderful balance between privacy and communal living. The shared outdoor kitchen area is great for talking to other guests, particularly at breakfast.
Oh, and SPEAKING OF BREAKFAST, this was my favorite perk of Mulawarman….Ibu Wayan and the staff serve you tea or bali coffee, water, a large plate of fresh cut fruit, and a breakfast entree each day. Her green banana pancake is TO DIE FOR! It rocked my world.
I also took a cooking class from her, wherein she tought me how to make three traditional dinner dishes for myself and my fiancee---from the freshest ingredients I've ever used (Wayan actually picked one of the ingredients from the garden halfway through the preparation!). The dinner was fun to make, I wrote down the recipes, and I plan on making the dishes I learned for my family when I get back home. My fiancee also said that it was the best meal we had in Ubud.
Overall, great experience, highly recommended---I was sad to leave :(
