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.
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.
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!

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.
