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.
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 IDR 350,000 one-way.
The only house rules we have are to be mindful to us, to other guests , to the environment , and to yourself.
When it comes to smoking, we would like it done outside on your Balcony and not in your room.
If you are traveling with small children please be aware that we are located on the edge of a High Ravine. You are responsible for your children , please watch over them:)
We hope that all guests can truly relax and enjoy themselves while staying with us in Bali.
Mulawarman is a simple guesthouse in the city centre of Ubud yet the way to get to the guesthouse doesnot make you feel so safe : impossible to work back at night as no light at all for 500m and small canal on the side make it a little dangerous to walk... Afternoon walk will be no problem. You wont see much of the rice paddies as there is one old construction in front of your (website hidden) ever, Ibu Wayan is very friendly and her banana pancake is the best pancake I have ever had! Over all, the place and location is not the ideal but the stuffs and food here is lovely
Dear Wen, I am sorry you did not feel safe walking at night to the guest house. You need to make sure to ask the staff or Ibu Wayan for a flashlight for night walking. Usually the staff will give you a flashlight, if they see you leave at night. We have many flashlights ready for your use right at the dinning area tables. The area and walk is very safe (and safe neighborhood) the walk to the guest house is a small cement pathway with nature around. Plants, water, trees and other small houses on the way. Ibu Wayan is building now a few more rooms for guest, but stopped construction in August, so guest do not have to deal with the noise. The location is only a 10-15 minute walk to the heart of Ubud, but hidden behind all the noise. So I would think pretty ideal location. We are glad you liked the pancakes, ibu loves to cook.
Ibu Wayan and Tracy
Ibu wayan was a friendly host. She was helpful when we needed a ride to Sanur. However the listing does not provide tv because she disconnected it. The home stay is well located in the hearth of ubud. The staff don't speak English so it's a little hard to communicate. Decent stay.
Dear Karl, Thank you for staying with us, We are changing our listings now to no TV, Or no cable. Because some people use the TV to attach cameras or other devises . Ibu Wayan was finding out that most people who stayed did not use the TV for actual tv watching channels. We hope that was not such an inconvenience for you. Ibu Wayan is like the local mother to all . She loves to help her local community and hires young adult staff (18-22yrs.)that do not have parents, do not have enough money to eat, and or do not have enough money to go to English classes. Ibu has all new staff right now too. So when you stay At Mulawarman remember you are truly helping out balinese people. Ibu Wayan is at this time trying to save a little money each month to be able to get an english tutor that would come to mulawarman twice a week and teach the staff english. The Staff really enjoys the guests and their english will get better the more they communicate with the guests. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope you visit us next time you are in Bali.
Happy Traveling , Ibu Wayan and Tracy Mulawarman
Ibu (mumma) was an excellent host! On arrival we got the nicest watermelon juice drink and bags taken to our room (secret hideaway #1). Breakfast every morning was excellent, the best pandang pancakes you will eat! We arranged a tour with Ibu, and got half a day to go around to see rice fields, 2 temples and coffee plantation and it wasn't very expensive, we negotiated around our budget! Every time we came back the staff or Ibu, welcomed us very warmly! If we go back to Ubud this will be the place we go! Highly recommend!
Our time at Muluwarman was incredible. We were picked up in Seminyak by Wayan's son, Putu, who was very friendly, and took us to a local vegetarian restaurant for lunch, and was very kind and told us of some things to check out. When we arrived at the villa, we were greeted by Wayan, the kindest, warmest spirit, who welcomed us to her home and our home for the next few days. We could not believe her hospitality, and what a wonderful host she was. We were very sad to leave. The villa was very clean, the bed was comfy, and the property was beautiful. 2 minutes away from rice paddies, and central ubud was seconds away. Had an incredible trip. Thank you for the amazing experience!!!
We rented room #1 which was very cute and had a great view. We spent most of our time checking out Ubud, but the staff was pleasant when we were around.
We would have liked to have A/C and Internet while we were there (neither were working at the time), but all and all it was a good stay.
Oh what a delight it was staying for our first 2 days in Ubud with Wayan. She was accommodating and helpful in everyway possible. We loved our room over looking the ravine and it was wonderful to sleep under the mossi net with the doors open and feel secure. Located just off the main street we walked everywhere in central ubud We will definitely be back on our next visit. Thankyou Wayan we look forward to seeing you again. Your banana pancakes really are the best !
Very nice stay in this little nest close to Ubud's main attractions !
Rooms are clean, simple and confortable. Wifi only in lunch corner
Ibu Wayan is very welcoming, makes the best pancakes ever!
She can arrange everything for you from food to massage or daily tours!
I will come back if im going to ubud again!
Special thanks to her helpful and smiling staff as well as Made one of the local drivers working there :)
