One of the perks of the rainy season. Only during heavy rain and it only lasts a short time before draining away, but you may be treated to a waterfall view right from the porch!

The Space

Tibet Garden is a peaceful haven located in a small traditional village just outside of Ubud town center. 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, 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 two small fish pools (currently out of order sorry!), 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 satellite channels, Wi-Fi (high speed - recently upgraded!), drinking water, garage space for parking are all included.

Guest Access

You have the whole house and garden to yourself!

Interaction with Guests

I usually live in the house myself, so when it is available for renting 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 whatsapp 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.

The Neighborhood

Tibet Garden is located just outside central Ubud in the small hamlet of Bentuyung Shakti (the same as where Eat, Pray, Love was filmed). It is a very quiet and private setting, with big and lush garden, and surrounded by nature (jungle, rice fields, small river) and traditional village life that will seem a world away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud town center. The house is situated down a small path away from the road and you will hear the roosters much more than any motorbikes!

Within walking distance of the house there is laundry, several small restaurants, and a convenience shop. Every Friday and Sunday night you can see a wonderful dance performance of the unique Jegog Bamboo Gamelan being performed in the local temple. You are also most welcome to join in the village ceremonies (if you are lucky enough to be here on an auspicious day - not every day but they do happen quite often and you are guaranteed to experience it on every full moon!).

If you would like to attend a ceremony or just get involved with Balinese daily life you can tell Ibu Kadek and borrow from us the Balinese traditional dress, or buy your own in town to wear. I can also advise you on great eating places in the Ubud area, walks through the countryside, nearby waterfalls and sacred places, local bird life, and other traditional dances.

Getting Around

The house is conveniently located about 7 minutes ride straight up the road (Jalan Suweta) from the central Ubud Palace in Bentuyung Shakti Village. This is the same village and very near the house where the movie "Eat, Pray, Love" was shot. And when you get here, you will understand why they chose this as their place for the ideal Ubud village atmosphere.

Please note there is no public transportation in this area (just as in any of the villages surrounding Ubud). The best and most convenient way to get around Ubud in general is by motorbike - we can help get you in touch with the rental people with quality bikes at very cheap daily rates. Bicycle would also be practical but you must be fit to do this in the tropical heat. Walking is lovely too, but it takes a while, although the way passes through some gorgeous scenery and Balinese cultural life along the way. Very reasonably priced taxi in and out of town can also be arranged, as can airport pickup and day trips with polite and relaxed private driver for a tour around to see the wonders of Bali. Ubud makes a great and central base for this.

Nestled in a private spot beside river and jungle but within the traditional Balinese village only a 7 minute ride to Ubud town center. Beautiful location, quiet, and large natural garden.
