The Space

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.
We have in all rooms wifi but the purple room has a very bad signal. But you are welcome to use our kitchen for wifi.
This listing is for the purple room only!

Please look and book separatly 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.
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!
The family consist of the parents(from Austria and Bali), a little girl, 1 dog and 2 cats.
Please come and have look!

  • We loved our stay at Birgit! The purple room was beautiful decorated, and the bathroom was a delight! Breakfast was served at our terrace and it was organic and good! Birgit was helpful and we highly recommend this place to everyone visiting Ubud!

  • This was a nice, quiet place to stay. Bridget had put together a helpful brochure to refer to and gave me a map of Ubud with all the key areas and restaurants on.

  • Great place to stay. Clean and nicely decorated room and bathroom. Friendly staff and a good breakfast. Near the centre of Ubud but located in a green and quiet backyard.
    Wifi is not available in the room, but in the front of the House or the the other room they offer there called the moon room.

  • Thanks for the comfortable stay, Birgit. The garden is lovely, the veranda a beautiful place to enjoy a delicious breakfast, and the room is like home! Thanks to Wayan for a delicious breakfast always delivered with a smile and a kind word. I really appreciated the efficient ride to the airport from Made's brother - I enjoyed hearing about his family.
    I will be back!

  • We joined Ubud for one night and had a nice stay in Balila B&B. Accomodation is in short walking distance to restaurants and city centre. The room / bathroom itself was clean and the accomodation has got a small terrace in a relaxed garden atmosphere. I can recommend this place to other travellers.

  • I stayed in Balila in my last few days in Bali. Birgit was not there. but her husband, Made, and her staff, Wayan were really great, very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. I met Birgit in a few days after I checked out, she is so nice and friendly. The wonderful thing is, Wayan still recognaize me! Nice to have a new friends in Ubud! sure I will be back to visit them.
    The price, the location and also the breakfast was perfect. the rooms is clean and colorful. and so does the chickens :) but the mosquito net is a bit too tight :)

  • My stay at Balila was wonderful. It felt like being at home. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who would like a quiet, private place. There is an art museum next door and sometimes music from the performances drifts over. The morning breakfast was lovely. All the staff there were very friendly and kind. The only thing missing is perhaps a swimming pool - Bali is a very warm place :)

  • We loved our stay at Balila from 2-11th Feb 2014. Birgit & Made were wonderful hosts - the purple room was perfect, and we loved the terrace, gardens & tranquil setting. Also great if you like gamelan music - there are regular nightly performances from ARMA museum next door. Birgit has put a lot of effort into designing the rooms with tasteful decor & seemless integration with natural surroundings. The bathroom was delightful - plus we always had plentiful hot water. Wayan the Balila angel was attentive to our needs - cleaning our room when we needed, along with providing fresh towels & sheets, and the delicious breakfasts were made with love & care. We have recommended Balila to many of our friends, and are looking forward to a return stay when we're next in Ubud.

  • Balila was an awesome homestay experience, real value for money!
    Everyone at Balila was friendly and helpful which made the entire experience a cosy one. We found its location to be very convenient especially if you intend to explore Ubud area. Our homestay also came with a very heart & healthy breakfast which was a great start to the day.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at Balila. The garden is stunning and it was lovely and relaxing to lie in the hammock listening to the sounds of nature. The hosts, Birgit and her husband, Made, were friendly and welcoming, but also respected your privacy and desire to be alone. They left a very helpful brochure in the room recommending spas, restaurants, etc and other helpful information on the room and area. Made even made the effort to make me coffee a couple of afternoons and bought it to me in the hammock by the room, where we had a fascinating conversation. The woman who brought breakfast was very sweet and helpful. The room was good, I particularly liked the pretty bathroom,. I had a problem with the fan, but Made fixed it as soon as I mentioned it. There was a little building work going on next door, but it was very quiet and didn't bother me at all. I got the impression the men waited for times when guests were not around. Overall, I had a fantastic experience there. It is extremely good value for money and I would go and stay there again. A couple of tips, the Ganesha hotel 2 mins away were quite happy to let me use their pool and provide a towel for 25 thousand idr per day and the Mexican restaurant 5 mins away and spa (recommended by Birgit in her brochure) was fabulous!
