go on tour and see sacred temples, amazing waterfalls, beautiful rice terraces and
astonishing landscapes
go tracking or do climb a volcano
and many more...

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Silvana and her husband were wonderful and very hospitable. Their treehouse-like guesthouse is a marvel. Love the wooden planks, open view surrounded by lush greenery and the thoughtful details that all add to a rustic hideaway...I'm really lucky to be able to stay there. It was a restorative experience, waking up to nature, living and breathing tranquility in an oasis of calm.

  • Silvana and Kutut were helpful and generous hosts that made it possible to get a REAL glimpse into Bali rural living. This is for people with an adventurous and inquisitive spirit that want to learn something about other cultures. We really enjoyed exploring the East side with scooter and car and also enjoyed Kutut's cooking very much. This place has wonderful potential and we hope to hook up with them in future.

  • This place is a hidden gem if you want to get away from it all. The bungalow is really big and breezy with beautiful views over the ocean and the outside bathroom is a true delight. Spend a few hours in the hammock or watch the sunrise from your bed. Silvana is a really nice and warm person and she knows a lot about Balinese culture and where to go. I loved talking with her, walking to the shore and spending a few hours swimming with her and her son in tirta gangga. The food Ketut prepares is delicious and it feels like you are in your own private restaurant! This place is truely something else and you will get a good insight in daily life, watching the pigs and cows passing your bungalow and enjoying a ceremony in the temple. Don't forget to check out the Sam's art!

  • Ketut and Silvana were fantastic hosts and their guest house is really wonderful place! The Sanubari guest house in Seraya is a great place to get away from the tourism and experience meeting locals and Bali country life. The place was nice and clean and the bathroom is an experience in itself. The views from the guest house are amazing and so are the nearby beaches (black sand beach, white sand beach and boulder beach). Ketut accompanied us to the Aga Villages nearby and Silvana showed us the Soap and Chocolate factory (where there is this great swing overlooking the sea - simple pleasure) on our way to Kuta. The place is remote but they can arrange for a moped (or vehicles) to get around. We also had the opportunity to dine with the guests at the nearby Frangipani Guesthouse over a suckling pig dinner prepared by one of the locals. A most wonderful experience! I highly recommend staying at Sanubari and hope to stay there again someday. Thank you Ketut and Silvana. Thanks Sam for the lovely drawing!! :)

  • We had a wonderful stay at Ketut´s and Silvana´s Guesthouse in the middle of nowhere between Ujung and Amed. They have built a phantastic house, you´re outside but there´s shelter. Ketut is a great cook, and the food is kind of indogerman, apple-pancake, yieha :-)
    We highly recommend their place!

  • What can I say, I want to go back! Unfortunately Silvana was on holiday but she was incredibly helpful in helping me organize my trip beforehand. When I arrived, I was a little worried because it felt quite remote and you need a motorbike to get around. However it was absolute bliss and so peaceful.When I got there Ketut organized for an amazing private yoga instructor to come every morning at 6am as the sun came up, then came yummy banana or pineapple pancakes, reading in the hammock, amazing cookery classes using traditional Balinese ways of cooking - Curry and Coconut Satay were highlights. Ketut took me to Lepah Beach in Amed where I snorkelled, a local textile manufacturer, the water palaces, the swing of enlightenment at the chocolate factory in Karangasem, the beautiful white sandy beach and even dropped me to Ubud. If you are lucky while you are hanging out at the guesthouse, seeing the little dinky Balinese pigs and chickens scurry around, Ketut might climb a tree and pick you a coconut. Ketut was the perfect host, he makes you feel very welcome, he is friendly, funny and accommodating. I will never forget Sanubari and hope to go back next year. Thank you for making my holiday so special.

  • We spent only 2 nights at Sanubari Guesthouse but it was a really great stay :) I talked a lot to Silvana before our stay and she was extremely helpful and friendly, even made a reservation for a Fast Boat to the Gilis for us. She wasn't around when we finally got to Bali but her husband Ketut was an amazing host too. He organized cars and motorbikes for us, even drove before us to a diving centre in Amed so we'd now the way. And: Best banana pancakes ever! Thanks again for everything, Ketut!!
    The bungalow itself is beautiful as well with its huge terrace and the outdoor bathroom and all. You can even see the sea from your dinner table. You can walk down to a pretty beach within 10-15 min from the location and there's a real nice tiny warung on the way which belongs to one of Ketuts friend. They serve delicious Nasi goreng and they've got pretty good wifi as well.

  • The sanubari guesthouse really is a wonderful place. We loved that it is so open and makes you feel so connected to its surroundings. Sylvana and son Sam were on holiday so we didn't get a chance to meet them but Ketut was a perfect host. We really felt spoiled by his cooking of breakfast and diner and his English was very good and it was nice to have him talk to us about the local Balinese community and their rituals and ceremonies. Their was a tooth-veil ceremony at the little village when we were there and Ketut made sure we didn't miss out on the music and dancing that happens in the streets around the temple. We walked straight down to the river from the guesthouse. An adventurous walk because there wasn't a real path to follow down. Once at the river we followed it to the ocean and from there we took a path back up to the road which led us through farm-fields and along deserted little farms and houses in the neighborhood. Sometimes we were a bit worried we weren't intruding but the locals were very friendly and showed us the way back to the road. This whole experience made us feel very welcome and gave us some 'insight' in local life. We will definitely remember this place and will definitely go back!

  • I absolutely loved our stay at Sanubari Guesthouse, the best stay of our trip actually. We were keen to stay a bit away from the really built up, noisy, busy tourist hubs. And this was the perfect place, away from the main centres, nestled among the trees in a local village high on the edge of a valley looking out toward the sea.
    Silvana and Ketut were wonderfully helpful every step of the way, and even picked us up from our previous stay to bring us to the guesthouse. They organised some bikes for us to hire which were great for exploring the nearby areas, and we did a ride to Amed which was incredibly breathtaking! The road follows the coast and crosses some gorgeous scenery.
    Ketut cooks all the meals and everything was delicious. Silvana and Ketut's son Sam quickly befriended us and our 2 6yr old girls. He took the kids to explore all around the place, they had heaps of fun together. I'd love to stay here again one day, and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to experience the real essence of Bali.

We are Ketut and Silvana, a mixed couple ( balinese-german) and have a 5 years old son, who's called Sam. Ketut is an excellent cook, I'm an artist and both we are mind- and heartopened and love meeting people from all over the world. We live nearby the house, so if you like we can cook, arrange trips or give you tips where to go. Our guesthouse is an open place ( it has bamboo/fabric-blinds to close for privacy and protection from wind or rain) with an open bathroom. The bedroom is a real room with walls and a big sliding door which is possible to lock. You're gonna live on 60 square meters plus a huge bathroom. So the house has plenty of space and a very nice view.
