About this listing
Our purple room is in the quiet back garden looking out to the fish pond and lush nature.
The room shares a terrace with the orange room but has its own bathroom.
Balila guesthouse has 5 rooms in different locations.
All 5 rooms are lovely furnished, have hot water, fan and a private terrace looking into a green garden.
In the back garden are 2 rooms (purple and orange) next to each other in a little house that is surrounded from a tropical garden. Both rooms have their own semi open bathrooms with hot showers.
The purple and the orange room share one terrace.
This listing is for the purple room only!
Please look and book separately for our 4 other rooms:
'The orange room' is in the same bungalow like the purple room. This bungalow is in the very quiet back garden of our family house.
'Moon Room' is attached to the family's house and has a bath tub in the open bathroom.
'Hanuman Bungalow' is a little separated bungalow, with a little kitchen and a daybed on its terrace.
The king fisher hut is in the same back garden as the purple and orange room. it is a small but cozy wooden cottage.
We serve healthy breakfast and try to be environment friendly as much as possible.
The next and biggest yoga center (yoga barn) is only 7 min. walking distance away.
In our street are many international restaurants, galleries, mini markets, ATMs and art shops.
The famous 'ARMA Museum' is our direct neighbor and you can listen from the garden their daily dance performances. they can be a bit loud abut last only 1 hour and should not be missed on a Bali trip!
Our location is very close to the center but we are still surrounded from a tropical jungle with lots of birds, butterflies and frogs.
After heavy rains the frogs are happy and can be a bit loud!
My husband is also a driver an tour guide and he can bring you around all Bali.
With our knowledge about this island we can help you to find the best places!

We really enjoyed our stay at Balila. Our bungalow was lovely and clean. Near the location you can find nice restaurants and it is just 15 mins walk from Monkey forest. The staff was super friendly too and we loved playing with Zeus the cat :-)
Unfortunately I never got to meet Birgit but her husband was a great host to us! We loved the stay from friendly employees to the guest, it was a great experience! Everyone was so helpful and we loved the eco friendly/healthy/organic side to it all! It was a great location, not in the heart of the city but walking distance! It was perfect and quiet if you need to get away from all the tourist attractions. It was beautiful and green! Would definitely stay here again!
The rooms were even lovelier than the pictures and our hosts did everything they could to make us feel welcome.
Very nice, authentic place hidden away in Ubud. I never met Birgit, who was however very prompt and accommodating in her replies to my messages; Made, her husband, was always around and even took me to see a couple of temples in the north for a small fee. When my friend who was meant to join me cancelled last minute the hosts promptly and kindly refunded me in cash. The purple room was pleasant and clean, with a nice ensuite bathroom which is partially open aired. There is a mosquito net that does the job as needed, as well as a nice fan. Breakfast at Balila was very tasty. Overall a wonderful experience and great value for money.
I absolutely loved Balila! It was the perfect place to stay for my first time in Bali with my daughter. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. We will defiantly be back!
The place is nested in greenery. Friendly staff. However it is further away from the city center than what we expected.

About the Host, Birgit
we are a mixed family with Birgit, originally from Austria, Made her husband from Bali and Lila our beautiful daughter.
Birgit lives and loves in Bali already 12 years and enjoys every minute.
At the moment we have 1 dog and 1 cat, but that can change all the time.
We are renting 5 rooms in and around our family house, which is surrounded by a tropical jungle in the middle of Ubud.
Made is also offering transports and tours around Bali and will offer his big knowledge about Bali and its culture.
Wayan is our helper and the the 'real' boss in the house, because she prepares the breakfast, cleans the rooms and helps out wherever she can
Whatever you want to know about Bali ,we will try to give you the right answer.
Hope to see you soon in our little family compound!!!
