Please look and book seperatly for our 3 other rooms:
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.
'Hanuman Bungalow' is a little seperated bungalow, with a little kitchen and a daybed on its terrasse.
We serve healthy breakfast and try to be environment friendly as much as possible.
The next and biggest yoga center 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 neighbour.
Our location is very close to the center but we are still surrounded from a tropical jungle with lots of birds, butterflies and frogs.
My husband is also a driver and tourguide 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, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
Please come and have look!
Ubud tourism focuses on culture, yoga and nature. In contrast to the main tourist area in southern Bali, the Ubud area has forests, rivers, cooler temperatures and less congestion although traffic has increased dramatically in the 21st century. A number of smaller "boutique"-style hotels are located in and around Ubud, which commonly offer spa treatments or treks up Ubud's mountains.
I really liked the location and my room was simple, but clean and comfortable. It's true, that the place isn't that central, but if you don't mind walking a few minutes there will be nothing to worry about!! :) There are also many nice shops and restaurants just a two minutes walk away. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were helpful and nice (Thank you, Wayan!) :)
Birgit and her family are really charming, easygoing, helpful people. I really enjoyed the cooking lady and massage in my room which was recommended by the hosts.
The Yoga Barn is 7 min walking distance. I found nice places to eat, rent a car and a scouter, go on a tour or shop right nearby.
I was able to walk everywhere in Ubud although taxi drivers are really easy to find. Birgit's husband can arrange any trip or an airport pick-up.
Birgit is a phenomenal woman with a beautiful family. Very prompt communication and the moon room is just as described. Looking forward to Balila's future seaside retreat center!
I had a wonderful stay at Balila! Thank you so much for a great weekend. I hope to be able to visit again.
I arranged for airport pickup and was met by the driver and brought right to the guesthouse. My room was ready and waiting. It was so nice and peaceful. Breakfast was delicious and they provide many options for tours, driver, massage, wood carving. It was wonderful and in a great location in central Ubud. The amazing price made it even better. Thank you! You have a wonderful family and guesthouse.
The moon room was lovely. Great value for the price and the staff were very helpful and yummy breakfasts indeed. As stated you may have some local visitors ( I had a frog and lizards every night) but they are harmless and there is mosquito netting for comfort. The Mosquitos were quite bad outside do bring your bug repellant and you'll be good! Town is a bit of a track so you will want a scooter if you are traveling about tow regularly. But they are cheap at $5 a day. Overall enjoyed my stay!
Mi experiencia fue excelente. No hubo ningún inconveniente. La habitación es hermosa y muy cómoda. Asi como tambien la ubicación y la atención. Fueron muy amables conmigo. Y el desayuno es lo mejor de todo!!! Y de todos !!! :)
Stated four nights in the orange room, very clean & comfortable. It's a little out of the main centre of ubud, but it's a nice walk with cute shops and cafes along the way. It's also about a 5-10 min walk to yoga barn
Great spot! Lovely and clean. Felt a little funny about not being able to lock the door when I was sleeping, but since the owners had their whole kitchen in the open air it was obvious that this was the norm.
Charming homestay with great hosts.
Made and Birgit are always friendly and welcoming. Made showed me how to eat the salak fruit and Birgit and I watched a butterfly coming out of its cocoon! Wayan is always full of smiles and makes great breakfast! Housepets are adorable too. Made brings tours to Amed too so those who enjoy sea activities should really talk to him.
Wifi is strong, bathroom is cooling and inviting, hot water is easily available, towel provided, drinking water provided, fan is strong, money changer just outside has good rates, ARMA just beside, plenty of eating places nearby, walking distance to monkey forest.
Overall, it has been marvelous, waking up to see butterflies, hear frogs and crickets and immerse in nature. I hope to be back there again soon!
Balila is ideally located. Birgit and her husband were great hosts and went out of their way to help with our other travel plans. The breakfast served to our room was worth almost the price of the room. Surrounded by tropical plants with quaint water gardens gave the warm feeling of being on Bali.
