By Dorry Bed and Breakfast is more than your average Bali villa, it is a piece of art constructed from the idea and guidance of Indonesian native, Dorry Afidick. "By Dorry" started off as a brand which labeled all of her creations. Let it be from a simple shirt design to a shower curtain pattern, Dorry always left her stamp with the two words "By Dorry." Now not only can these two words be found on her home made designs, but on the front of a beautiful Ubud villa.
The villa started off as an idea which bloomed into a real life on going project. Dorry worked closely with her architect in building the structures of the villa but insists on all of the artistic decor and design of the villa herself. By Dorry Bed and Breakfast is an extension of Dorry's creative mind. Everything from the door panels, to chairs, to bathroom tiles, to dressers; these things are hand chosen and placed personally by Dorry herself. Being a natural at selecting colours and patterns, Dorry's role in the villa's look and feel is very personal. The villa captures her fiery spirit and love for colours.
By Dorry Bed and Breakfast is a family run establishment that not only gives you the peace and comfort of your home away from home, but at the same time offers the true experience of Bali.
Located about three kilometres from Ubud Market, this inn is surrounded by lush, green and golden rice fields that offer you an amazing, undisturbed view within Pejeng Kawan Village. Being located away from the crowded area, it offers a place of peace and tranquility, a place where you can escape for a real vacation for your body and soul. But along with its easy location for retreat, it is still in close location to many Bali tourist sights and activities while still encompassing the hidden, everyday lives of the local Balinese people.
Della, Dorry's daughter and staff will ensure that you stay in a home away from home, be it for a couple days or for a longer stay. Each of the rooms are uniquely decorated with antique Javanese and Balinese furniture. To the bed frame to the doorways, By Dorry is personally decorated by Dorry Afidick herself encompassing the creative colour palettes and patterns of traditional Indonesia while simultaneously mixing in modern pieces to create a familiar comfort to each room and living space. What also is available in every room is your own bathroom, patio deck, and air conditioning. Along with a communal living space with tv and kitchen. Your stay will also include breakfast for two.
Ubud is the town in which By Dorry is located. In reference to Bali Island, Ubud is centrally located. In comparison to other Bali towns, like Kuta, Ubud is more quiet being regarded as the cultural centre of Bali making its focus on arts, natural sights, and beautiful structures. All through out the streets and surrounding areas you will find small cafes, art gallerias big and small, historic temples, shops, and many alluring, natural sights. Also being a very ritualistic and spiritual place, you will be able to see the local people perform in everyday worship, prayers and even ceremonies.
Though I only met Della when I arrived in Bali, I felt like an old friend. We communicated through emails and (website hidden) prior to my stay. She helped me schedule a full itinerary for my trip prior to arrival.
By Dorry is a very special retreat. My fiance and I stayed at a resort in Nusa Dua, Bali, and though they tried to replicate the feeling of a unique hand catered experience, they did not come close to our stay with Della and Dorry.
Stay here. It's a wonderful quaint retreat and Della will help you create the Bali experience you want, no matter what that is. I hope to return asap.
Stayed at Della's B & B in Ubud (By Dorry) - beautiful place, with wonderful people. Della's a very hospitable, easy-going, and warm host.
Della is a very welcoming and detailed person, she designed the B&B in a wonderful and unique Style. If somebody knows Bali very good - its Della. When you stay with her she is doing all her best what she can. I remember when I was visiting Della in Ubud with my husband to stay in her Bed&Breakfast it felt so relaxing and recovering fpr us, from being from a big city before... This is a perfect Getaway from the daily stress and enjoying the Nature of Ubud. You have the rice field directly in front, such a lovely view! The Design/Style of the House is stunning ! All the Best for Della :))
I stayed as one of the first guests at By Dorry. It was a wonderful and peaceful bed and breakfast with very friendly people. The surroundings and the view are stunning. The room is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. A mixed style of modern luxury villa combined with a traditional Indonesian touch. It is a nice getaway in Ubud, so highly recommended!
I had the pleasure of staying at the By Dorry bed and breakfast during my adventures in Bali and I must say it is a hidden gem of Ubud. The staff, which is ran by the daughter of Dorry, is extremely helpful and speaks english really well! They made me feel more like a visiting relative than a patron of their BNB. If you're looking at staying somewhere peaceful, unique, and most importantly away from the all the tourists in Kuta Beach, definitely check out By Dorry.
