Get closer to nature + culture with a stay at Tibet Garden. Located in a peaceful setting of a traditional Balinese village, immersed in jungle, garden and rice paddy fields, but just a few minutes drive from the lively Ubud town center. Wake up with sunshine, flowers, fruit trees + butterflies in the lush tropical garden, sleep with fireflies. A fully equipped kitchen + Fiber Optic WiFi + watch DVD's on the 47" LG LED TV. Multiple beds and Tibetan traditional decor. Enjoy traditional + modern.

The space

Tibet Garden is a peaceful haven located in a small traditional village just outside of Ubud town center. Please note the house is NOT located in Ubud town center, but a short vehicle ride outside (7 minutes on average). The surrounding area is awash in lush green rice fields, patches of living jungle, and Balinese temples that come alive with vibrant color, hypnotic sounds and magical spirit during festival times. You will be greeted each morning in the garden by butterflies sipping nectar from colorful flowers, birds and their beautiful songs, chickens playing and sunbathing, and a general sense of village tranquility. It is a perfect place for yoga, meditation, reading, writing, etc..

The house itself is decorated in mixed Balinese and Tibetan style and has one large main room with comfy bed and couch, a small side "alcove with a view" with extra bed looking out over the rice paddies, semi-open air natural stone and marble bathroom with hot water shower and a small fish pool, as well as fully equipped kitchen. Staying at Tibet Garden includes semi daily cleaning by a friendly Balinese woman who lives nearby (Ibu Kadek) - and possible delicious Indonesian home cooking by request. Linens are provided, as well as 47" flat screen TV with Indovision international satellite channels, Wi-Fi (high speed - recently upgraded!), drinking water, cooking basics, garage space for parking motorbikes are all included.

Guest access

You have the whole lovely house and garden to yourself! Lots of privacy.

Interaction with guests

I usually live in the house myself, so when it is available for renting this most likely means I am traveling at that time, or at the very least in another part of Bali. I am accessible by email and WA most of the time, and Ibu Kadek lives just nearby and can help you with some assistance should you need it. That being said, this is a private house and not a hotel, so keep that in mind that there is some level of independence required to stay here.

Respect the Balinese people and surrounding nature. Cultivate good energy here. And please help to feed my fish. Smoking outside the house only. If you break something in the house, please leave some compensation for that. Please turn off the lights and AC when leaving the house. Also when you make the booking thanks to give me exact arrival details so that we can be prepared to receive you at the house or help arrange your transport should you require this. On same day bookings I might not be immediately accessible so it's best to coordinate arrival directly with Ibu Kadek at (check confirmation email for detailed directions and contact info). Please try your best to arrive at the agreed upon time and any changes should be communicated in advance. Thanks!

The house has a nice garden and a comfortable porch to view it from. Kadek brought me fruit from the yard, invited me to the local temple and was very welcoming. Shakar is an excellent host and responds quickly to any issues. The rooster next door is a bit noisy so earplugs might be a good idea for those unaccustomed to village life.

This place was beyond our highest expectations. Lovely situated in a garden by a rice field, it gives you perfect rest after a busy day around Ubud. Most likely the best choice you can make.

We loved the couple of days at this place 6kms north of the Ubud frenziness. Ibu Kadek was absolutely great with us to help our family get an authentic balinese experience. Great garden in a small jungle, full of butterflies...

Response from Shakar:
Thanks so much for your kind words Yann. It was pleasure to meet you and your delightful family, and I'm so glad you enjoyed the experience of true Balinese culture and nature around Tibet Garden. Just I only wanted to make a little clarification, our place is only 3km north of Ubud (not the 6km mentioned), just a short 7 minute ride by vehicle, but yes it feels like a different universe from the madness of Ubud town center!

Had a wonderful stay at Shakar's Tibet Garden sanctuary <3 Really spacious, private space surrounded by nature.. beautiful energy, lovely location, far enough away from ubud to feel super peaceful but only a 10 minute scooter into town.. Ended up extending my stay an extra week because I loved this space so much. Ibu Kadek was also amazing in helping with anything she could :-) Would recommend and defintely would stay again. Thanks again Shakar x

Great low-key place to stay in Ubud! This villa is really in a quiet spot, surrounded by lush nature. Perfect to relax and disconnect. The vibe is rustic but also cozy, comfortable and clean. Location requires bikes to get around, but this is cheap and the roads are gorgeous to drive us. Ibu is also a fantastic host, very friendly and helpful!

What a hidden gem this place is. Ibu Kadek is also a gem and became like family to us during our stay. Our son got sick on the way to the house and Ibu Kadek helped us get medicine and even escorted us to the doctor. She also dressed us up to accompany she and her family to the temple in the 30 year temple celebration! It was a special stay and we hope Shakar's place is available again so we can come back and visit Ibu Kadek and her lovely family!

Hello and welcome to all those planning a trip to this beautiful village of Ubud. I have been living here already 10 years, and in that time I have also traveled extensively around the world. But I can honestly say that "home sweet home" is right here, surrounded by nature, art, and culture, on the island of Bali. And there is no better place to experience all this than right in the heartland of Ubud.

My life here is basically all about arts, culture, and nature. I enjoy taking part in many Balinese cultural ceremonies, and if you come and stay here you will be most welcome too, with traditional clothing to wear available to you. My house is close to the people in the village, but also in a very private setting with only jungle, rice paddy, garden around you. It's a simple and beautiful life.

If you come and stay at my place, I will also be happy to tell you all the good info about places to see around the island, amazing and delicious foods to eat, and whatever other insider knowledge I can offer to you. I love nature activities such as bird watching and exploring the undersea world, and I can let you know the best spots. But it may well be that you never want to leave the house because it is just so peaceful and delightful in these natural surroundings.

Looking forward to welcome you.
