This was perhaps our favorite place we stayed in Bali. We were looking to get away from the intensity of the South end of the Island and experience something more laid-back and this was perfect. We felt totally immersed in the peaceful beauty of the rice fields. The on-site…

It doesn’t get better than this. We could each write ten thousand words about our time in Singaraja, particularly at the homestay, but we suggest you book it and find out for yourself... you won’t regret even a shred of your time here. We will absolutely be back!!

Karien is a Dutch artist and about 8 years ago she started to convert a virgin sawah (ricefield) in the hills above Singaraja into a tropical paradise. The place grew around a 100 years old 'lumbung/Balinese rice barn' in pillars. This unique house has a seamlessly connection…
