Staying with Wayan was an absolute blast! He was kind and helpful and the place was clean and tidy. He even cooked us breakfast every day! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to visit Ubud, Bali!
Lovely place, wonderful bed, good value. Business-oriented and smiley host, but don't share my love for cewek :). Will return to stay.
I stayed at Wayan's place for a week and it was incredible - a heavenly sanctuary. The room was huge and the shower was incredible (I took photos of it everyday!) The best thing about staying here is you can be comfortable in solitude or mingle in the lovely banana tree-filled courtyard with other guests. Wayan's cooking is to die for - banana pancakes for brekkie are a must! I'm returning to Wayan's fantastic guesthouse in a couple of days because this place guys - is magic.
Big Cozy room with everything you need. It s clean, comfortable bed, big bathroom. Wayan is always avaible for you on his cellphone. (Pick up, transportation, information...)You just need to call him.
We were going around a lot on our own and didn t do a tour with wayan. But I think he is a really good guide for bali and can show you nice local spots you wouldn t go on your own.
The Manada Guesthouse is everything it says it is and more! This trip was a few firsts for me, first time traveling to Bali, first airbnb experience, and first time traveling solo, so I was initially quite apprehensive on how things would net out.
Overall, I had an amazing experience in Ubud largely due to Wayan and his family. It was as if I was staying with family I hadn't seen for years. I was so pleased by not only the guest house but the warm welcoming and kindness I had received when I arrived. Wayan is a superhost and from the beginning having a wonderful experience in Bali is his priority.
Location was ideal it's almost a 4km walk to central Ubud (markets, temples, monkey safari, etc.) The guest house is near to the Campuhan Trial. The walk was not only serene with amazing views (rice fields, temples, etc.) but there is a yoga studio, cafe, and quaint little local art/gift stores to stop at along the way.
The guesthouse itself is lovely, clean, and spacious. Bed was comfortable and my personal favorite was the beautiful outdoor white stone shower.
I was delightfully surprised that almost every morning Wayan cooks an amazing full breakfast ranging from banana crepes (pancakes) to omelette's served with fresh exotic fruit and coffee/tea. Some evenings he even cooked dinner teaching a few of the guests some of his Balinese favorite dishes with fresh local market goods. You have full access to the kitchen if you need it as well.
The best part of my stay was that Wayan introduced me and a couple of guests to the local hot spots and key traditional Balinese experiences that are not to be missed, ie. morning & night markets, spiritual temples, and local rice terraces. Truly an experience that I will never forget and made my stay so great.
No doubt, if and when I come back to Bali there is no way I would stay anywhere else!
I had a wonderful time at Mr. Wayan's Guesthouse. The room was beautiful and comfortable. I hope to come back soon.
We spent 3 days in this beautiful guesthouse . Location is just a few minutes by bike from Ubud, on a quiet street. The room is very clean and beautiful ,there is a lovely bathroom with open sky. Wayan is incredibly hospitable, polite and generally a very interesting person, made for us cooking lesson , turned out very tasty. Next time we are in Ubud,we will definately stop there and will recommend this guest house to all our friends.
