Beautiful location among the mountains and rice terraces of East Ubud. The resort is honestly stunning and designed with Dutch/Bali taste. The pink and blue rooms are the best - they have open air bathrooms and a lovely front and back balcony. It was a highlight! The on-compound restaurant was again beautiful but food - including breakfast - needs some improvement. Wayan the owner is very helpful and has lots of advice should you need it. However communication when booking this place was rather slow. Overall I would recommend adding this to any trip to Bali - three days is a good duration.

Darmada is as tranquil and beautiful as it is unique. The property is teeming with butterflies and birds which live in the gardens. It really is like a mini paradise. The owners Wayan and Barbara have quite a vision for their business. They also have a tiles workshop nearby which makes traditional hand made tiles that are real works of art. If you're an animal lover, you'll be happy to know that there are 2 cats and 1 dog here- perfect if you've left your pets behind on your travels and are missing them. They're great surrogates! Sometimes you might see 3 loveable ducks waddling around as well. If animals aren't your thing it's not a problem because they're all rather unobtrusive and will only engage with you if you invite them to. Wayan, Barbara and their staff are friendly and welcoming. Wayan and Barbara are particularly easy to talk to and are most down to earth. We were very sorry to leave. It's so charming here that we'll have to come back on our next trip to Bali for our dose of chill.

Darmada is a proper functioning guesthouse, and as such is a little bit different from a typical Airbnb listing. But it really is the most incredible place. There are currently only 7 rooms, and the whole operation is carefully built so as to not disturb the surrounding nature and farmland. The valley is exquisite and peaceful - a great respite from the bustle of Ubud. Service is polite and helpful, but not overattentive. Wayan is ready to help with any requests and suggestions that you may have. The pool is awesome. I could see how this may not be the ideal stay for everyone: it is out in farmland where you will deal with lots of bugs and spiders, a cacophany of frogs in the evening, and very little to do socially. But if you don't mind these things and are looking for somewhere peaceful and beautiful to escape to and explore, Wayan's guesthouse is ideal.

I thought that place was amazing, very very beautiful setting, everything is done with great taste. The area is very quiet but the nature is fantastic, and it is possible to rent a moped at Darmada for very little money, and from there you can make it to the coast in about an hour or to some temples if you prefer. I would definitely recommend this place for a true taste of Bali!

Hello, My name is Wayan and I was born and raised here in Sidemen. I am married to Barbara (Dutch) and we have 2 children, a boy, Sadu and a girl, Dwi .

My pleasures are my family, organic gardening, mediation and helping to educate the children and teenagers in the village.

We have 7 rooms at Darmada, a spring water fed swimming pool and a restaurant. We can arrange for transportation and tours around Bali.

I like to offer tips and can share information, about my beautiful island of the gods.

I hope to welcome you here in Sidemen.

The unspoiled Bali.
