Other things to note

KITCHEN
Putri, Wayan's lovely and very talented wife Putri, is our Indonesian chef extraordinaire. Guests continue to say: "This has been my best meal in Bali" and "I want to take her home!" Fortunately for you, she loves Bali and creates large delicious dishes using fresh garden vegetables from our organic garden and local produce bought early in the Pejeng market and organic vegetables and eggs grown in the Simentri farms. Please order 1 day in advance so she can buy the fresh produce in the morning market. Any food allergies or special requests, please tell Putri, your superb culinary chef.
If you want to join her and take a cooking lesson, don't hesitate to ask!

Small group Compound Cooking and Cultural classes are now available at the Family Compound located just a 7 minute drive away (or as the bird flies, a 35 minute walk through the rice fields). Help Ma-ma make the coconut oil or share the joy of making the ceremony offerings with the eldest member of the family, Auntie.

The family who cooked then cleaned up for us were beautiful generous people. The food was the best we have eaten in Bali. Wayan kindly drove us around and made helpful suggestions like booking the return trip on the fast boat to Gili Air. Plus a driver from the port to our next hotel. Highly recommend staying at Swallow Guesthouse. The house, garden and pool are beautiful.

This place is truly a gem. It's not for those who wish to be close to everything, but rather, those who want to get away from it all. Those who want to be more immersed in the local culture. The house itself is spectacular, and some of the nicest days are those spent there by the pool, rice paddies, and gardens. Otherwise, Wayan, Putri, and Kana will make sure that you have all that you need and can set up excursions to everything Bali has to offer. I'll definitely he coming back here if my travels take me back to Bali.

My two week stay at Swallow Guesthouse was the peaceful, authentic experience I was looking for. The craftsman style home is beautifully designed and maintained. Kana was working on site for the duration of my stay and I looked forward to being greeted by him each morning. During my stay he prepared a variety of breakfast dishes for me and each day he dutifully cleaned and maintained the unit. Since I was looking for an authentic experience, I didn't mind hearing the wake up calls of the chickens or the late night chirp

I will definitely be back. It's very relaxing and friendly neighborhood. It's quite peaceful and away from the crazy and busy city. I met the very helpful and attentive host, Wayan and his lovely wife Putri, OMG we love Putri's cooking!! And we met his cool daughter, Tiari! Everything went well. ;)

We can't fully describe how we enjoyed our stay at Swallow guesthouse. This is the best place to experience true Bali. Wayan helped us with everything (renting bikes, driving us and making tours). He is an open person, who always thinks in your best interest. His wife, Putri, is an amazing cook! We enjoyed our traditional balinese dinners and the cooking class she organized for us very much. The guesthouse itself is a bit off the beaten path, 10km away from the touristy Ubud, in a calm village. Peace, quiet, nature and smiling people around. This was, hands down, THE BEST Airbnb experience we had. And as Wayan told us: just relax and enjoy! We hope to visit this place again next year. Kate and Kyrylo

A perfect holiday in the heart of Bali. Waking up in this beautiful villa to the most glorious sunrise , delicious breakfast,a delight to the eye as well as the tastebuds. Strolling through the friendly village, dog at our side. Swimming in the river and climbing up the bank to discover our own century's old moss covered temple. Home across the rice fields for an hour long blissful massage. Sitting peacefully reading by the pool whilst Putri prepares the freshest most sumptuous feast. Wayan & Putri are the loveliest hosts. So proud of their amazing country. They took us to Temple ( where we were the only tourists ) and we were made to feel so welcome by the villagers. My daughter and I felt very safe as we walked off the beaten track, everyone we came across greated us with smiles. Wayan took us to so many outstandingly interesting and beautiful places. He was keen for us to understand his culture and really tailored the day out to suit our interests. It is impossible to put into words what a wonderful place Swallow Guest house ...just book it and find your own piece of paradise !

Come visit the REAL Bali. "My wife, Putri and I enjoy very much to share our culture and delicious food with you." Wayan

Who is Suzan Badgley?
I was born in 1962 in North Vancouver, known to locals as “Lotus land”. As a young child, I respected all living things in mountain and ocean environments and, at the age of three when I began to travel, I learned about the diversities and similarities in different cultural settings.

Influenced by the First Nations People how to be one with the land and spirit, I began exploring the world on my own, volunteering my services in exchange for food and lodging: and later, after acquiring a Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism, and a BA degree in Adult Education, was employed in managerial and teaching positions both in Canada and Asia.

68 countries later, I‘m blessed with a broad perspective of the world we live in and the people we perceive we are. When asked "Which is your most favourite place you have travelled to?" India, a country full of vast diversities, changed my life at the age of 25. It opened and challenged my mind and body; stimulated my six senses like no other experience in the past. I further learned about ancient cultures, social and family responsibility, and Buddhist philosophy while working in South Korea and Japan over a 15 year period.

I spent many winters in Bali, feeling a sense of home, perhaps a place of past life reincarnation, feeling comforted by the ancient Balinese culture and karmic ways, remembering "the Ring of Fire" in middle school when my finger was drawn to this tiny equatorial island on my well-worn map.

It was this time that I met Wayan Tagel, a wonderful man who lives by karma and loves to share his culture and family ceremonies. He became my sponsor, and I his supporter. For the past 12 years, my Canadian- based business, Swallow House Trading, has assisted in the marketing of the Swallow Guesthouse in the REAL Bali.

In Bali, needs are put forth to the Gods, a ceremony is done and right action is continued. The Gods do listen... As a westerner, I’m amazed at how things manifest when you put your dreams outwards.

Now semi-retired, I'm closely learning ancient lifestyle preserved by a unique combination of spirit and community belief. Enjoying sharing this knowledge to assist in the betterment of our environment and the beings upon it is my passion.

May I share with you? It would be my pleasure.
