Unlike many other countries, in Bali you should be polite by talking to everyone you meet. A smile and a simple hello are sufficient, but it is more polite to stop and start a conversation. This is a place to make friends fast. A Balinese saying, "Don't be shy" applies at all times. This also means that you can ask our staff about anything; where to find a good restaurant, where to rent a motor bike or car, where to get a massage, where to find a taxi or tour guide, what to wear when you visit a temple. Don't be shy.

This house is not suitable for young children. There are rice field banks, ponds, irrigation channels and steps that require care to navigate. Great for more grown up kids, but not for the young ones.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - Climb the Penestanan Steps, the quickest way and good exercise. Or walk in on flat paths. Or ride in by motor bike.
No parking on property - You must walk one minute out of the rice fields to your car or motor bike.

This place is wonderful. The location is about 10-15 min walk from the city center which I think is perfect. I would rather be further away and not have to hear the bustling of the street. One thing I would say is to bring some kind of clips to keep the mosquito bed curtain closed. Perhaps consider other mosquito deterrents as well. I loved that they provided filtered water at the house so that we didn't have to go buy water all the time.

A work of art. This bungalow is perfectly located, just a quick stroll from Yellow Flower Cafe and Intuitive flow. By far my favorite location in Penestanan and a real taste of Bali and being immersed in nature. I slept with the doors open and woke to the sight of rice fields. Beautiful. No AC or pool, but the bungalow makes up for it in character, just make sure those aren't must-haves before booking.

I had a wonderful stay at the Bijoux House, I wish I could have stayed longer! It was a pleasure to meet Ken. Nyoman and Made were gracious. It was fun exploring the area and it was the perfect place to relax after long travel. I definitely recommend Ken and Noelle's Bijoux House and will stay longer my next visit to Bali.

What an incredible experience. My partner and I had the privilege of staying with Ken and Noelle for a month in June and will never forget it. Ubud is the perfect place to call home in Bali - so central that daily excursions around the island are easy. Penestenan, where Bijoux is located, is the most happening, inspiring, and meditative place in all of Ubud. We loved sipping a coffee and watching the adorable ducks paddle around in the rice padi below. Ken, Noelle, and their helpers Made and Nyoman were the perfect hosts. We will miss Bijoux very much - until next time!

If you look at the pictures and think it's too good to be true, then you will be in for a surprise - it's even better than the pictures! When asked what my favorite part of my trip to Japan and Indonesia was, I always mention staying here. It is close to a busy area, but feels worlds away because the location is very calm. I honestly can't say enough good things about this place!
