A luxurious restored Dutch Javanese Antique Teak Joglo set amidst the rice fields of Ubud, with Pool, Wi-fi and organic garden. Two separate Suites sleep 7 in total with the option of extra mattress. Perfect for 2 small families, or a larger group.
The Rice Joglo is 20 minutes walk along the famous Rice Field walk into Sok Wayah Rice Field 200 m past Sari Organik. There is no car access in the rice field, ensuring tranquility and fresh, unspoiled air.
The Joglo is divided into two Suites, each with King sized bed and daybed.
This listing is for the Master Suite - top 2 floors. Check availability for the downstairs Lotus Suite as well. Guests can rent either Suite, or the whole property.
The Joglo was built in Java by a Dutch architect and is the only one of its kind. The restoration was true to the original, retaining the features of high cathedral/loft style ceilings, attic style doors and detailed fretwork.
Bathrooms were added to include open air showers and terazzo baths, and a separate outdoor kitchen and dining area which has 360 degree views of the rice fields, overlooking the river.
Guests also have access to the pool and wi-fi.
Our housekeeper will collect you with the scooter from the main road (Jalan Raya) and transport your luggage to the joglo. There's plenty to do nearby - the beautiful rice walk, Sari Organik's organic vegetable garden, Cantika spa, Pomegranate restaurant. Check with us for activities in and around Ubud.
Our little street is host to some beautiful restaurants, the most famous being Sari Organik a few minutes walk away. Enjoy any of the many day spas in our street or Ubud Centre. The centre of ubud is also host to a myriad of temples, museums, art and craft markets, restaurants and cafes.
You can walk into the rice field, or hire a bicycle or scooter. Getting around Ubud is easy by foot. We recommend bringing a torch for the way back into the rice field at night.
Other Things to Note
While the Joglo is easy to get to by walking or scooter, at night the walk into the rice field can get dark in places. You'll need a torch. It's the price we pay for enjoying the open space and tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the main centre.
Kristine is a great host and so is the housekeeper and the gardener. They made the trip very easy the book and while we were staying there, made us feel very welcome.
The house is basic but very clean. The deco made it homely and it's got all the themes you love about Bali. The pool was amazing and a great way to relax. The 20min walk to the main road is beautiful and lovely. It was sometimes too far and definitely too far for the kids, but Ketut and Made was always on hand to give us a lift. Made the gardener was also amazing in his garden. Providing us with fresh coconuts juice, eggs or vegetables from the garden everyday.
Highly recommend this place to relax. A good place to get away from the bustles of Ubud.
The Rice Joglo is an experience which anyone would enjoy. The setting is fantastic, the building is unique and it has a relaxing charm that is perfectly enjoyable. The pool area is great for kids to enjoy as well as relaxing after whatever activity you have chosen from the vast choice in the Ubud area. Staff are available when needed but manage to remain discretely out of the way to enable guests to enjoy the tranquil ambiance of the location. A fun place for a family or a romantic retreat for a couple. The Rice Joglo offered both.

I've lived in Sydney for a long time, though I was born in Norway. I seem to have both the sea and mountain cabins in my blood, because I'm now living between the two! I met my partner Sonu in my travels a few years ago, and we now divide our time between our home at Bronte Beach, and the Javanese teak Joglo cabin we help manage in the mountains of Bali. Sonu is Indian Hindu, who spent 10 years running an Indian restaurant in Israel, so between us we are a bit of a multicultural stew. We also have multi cultural children who love water - beaches, pools, and the fish that swim in the ponds in Bali.
