Experience authentic, Balinese life. The Payogan Homestay Bungalow is located within our traditional, Balinese family compound, only 2 kilometers north of Ubud. Newly constructed, this one bedroom house is cool and airy, built in the traditional Balinese style. Situated towards the back of the compound, it has it’s own fenced and landscaped yard and an expansive porch from which to sit peacefully and relax, enjoying the view. The Bungalow offers privacy and space yet you will still wake up to the traditional sounds of Bali and experience the essence of staying in a Balinese village.

The Bungalow includes a full kitchen that opens up to a beautiful and unique outdoor platform overlooking the garden, from which to dine or practice yoga. The essence of this home within our compound is that it is not only private, it is also customizable for your needs. There is a second room separate from the cool and shady bedroom that can serve as an office or indoor sitting room, however you please. Additionally, the home is well equipped with modern amenities for a comfortable and well connected stay with free wifi, and brand new air conditioning, as well as plenty of electrical outlets for all of your devices. There is a beautiful bathroom with a lovely tiled floor, stone carved sink, soaking tub and plenty of hot and cold water and throughout the Bungalow are traditional artistry and antique Balinese wood furnishings, reflecting the intrinsic connection to spirituality and the environment, an inherent part of Balinese life. Every detail of the bungalow seeks to promote comfort, peace and restoration.

Living in a Balinese family compound means that you will have many friendly neighbors. The compound is home to a large extended family, all of whom are very involved in traditional Balinese life, and committed to our village ceremonies, many of which take place in our family temple. We welcome you to participate if you choose. In fact, we encourage our guests to join us to get the true feeling of Balinese culture. We can always help you through the experience and provide the traditional wear.

As a licensed tour guide by profession, I can provide custom guided tours according to your interests and needs. We also provide airport transfer and local transportation at a very reasonable rate - we are only a call away.

Other highlights: - Longer stays enjoy a significantly reduced room rate. - Breakfast and/or other meals can be provided on request for minimal cost. - We can arrange laundry pick-up and delivery at very reasonable rates.

If there is anything else you need, just let us know. We want your stay with our family to be memorable.

Ketut is a great guy, he is always there if you need something. His guests comfort is his top priority. Oh and the pancakes for breakfast are to die for, so make sure to try them. Overall we enjoyed our stay with Ketut.

Ketut is the most wonderful host. Kind, warm hearted, attentive, caring... he really made me feel like I was part of the family. Traveling alone to a place where I knew no one, it was important for me to be welcomed into a home-like atmosphere to establish a ground base from which I could go out and explore/make friends. Ketut's homestay was exactly that. He sent a family member to pick me up from the airport, and from the moment I landed in Bali, I felt safe, welcomed, and taken care of. Ketut's family compound is gorgeous, and each one of his guest villas provides something unique... and all are beautiful. The location is a 10 minute scooter ride from Ubud center, but I found this to be great, and it always felt like coming home to my local spot after a long day out in the town. Oh, and, the banana pancakes are incredible, as I'm sure you already have read many times. I ate them pretty much every morning for 2 weeks, and never tired of them. I highly recommend staying with Ketut and his family. It will be the perfect welcoming to Bali, from the warm staff he has on hand, to the banana pancakes, to the comfortable and beautiful villas, you really can't do better than this if it's your first time visiting Bali. Thank you, Ketut, for showing me the kindness and goodness of the Balinese. It is an experience I will always cherish.

The best-kept secret of Ubud. Forget the resorts, hotels, villas. If you want the authentic experience, stay with Ketut in his actual Balinese family compound 5 minutes outside Ubud. You'll have your own private house totally to yourself, and I challenge you to find a better breakfast anywhere in Bali. Believe the hype! The pancakes are actually that good.

Wonderful cottage to land in! It's clean, private and cozy. Air conditioning works really well and the bed is very comfortable. There is a beautiful front yard to look out over from the covered porch. The Homestay is just far enough away from the main part of Ubud to offer peace and tranquilly, yet close enough to get there (about 10 minutes) when you need or want it. Ketut and his sons make it easy to get transport if you don't have your own. The grounds are very beautiful. Lovely, lovely family to host your stay. I can't recommend enough!

This is our first time to Bali and we are so happy that we chose Ketuts Payogan homestay. With Ubud center only 20 min away or 5 by car or scooter it made us feel like locals instead of tourists. The bungalow is clean and tidy. It's mostly quite with a few roosters to say good morning and sometimes good night. Ketuts family was so hospitable always saying good morning and hello willing to help in anyway. Ketuts breakfast are so good don't miss out on that. Also, Ketut took us on a awesome day trip to the volcano, coffee plantation, and rice fields. We absolutely loved it. I totally recommend this place. Great place to ease your way into Bali life.

We spent six lovely days in the Payogan Homestay Bungalow. Ketut and his family were extremely gracious and welcoming, and Ketut was very attentive and helpful in planning our various excursions around Ubud. If you want to stay inside a traditional Balinese family compound and have access to the very best local knowledge, this bungalow is for you. We would happily stay here again the next time we're in Ubud. Thank you Ketut for making our stay a memorable one! We appreciate all your help and advice.
