About this listing
This bamboo cottage is a secluded eco retreat down a quiet foot path nestled in the rice fields and only a five minute walk to central Ubud. Open air basket weave bedroom with mini loft, modern elegant bathroom and outdoor living area make this a truly unique Bali experience.
This is a woven house made almost entirely of bamboo. It is open air and as close to living in nature as you get.
We have a complete menu and full service to the cottage is just a phone call away with the complimentary cell phone we provide . We offer a complete menu of asian fusion snacks as well as a traditional balinese village style dinner served with candlelight and all accessories for a formal dining experience under the stars. dinner is prepared fresh from wild harvested or ingredients from our organic garden. Breakfast is delivered when you awake on the patio overlooking a lush greenery as far as the eye can see.
In addition to an organic garden we have a friendly goat who provides us with fresh milk we make into goat cheese and frequently serve in our delicious morning omelettes. The property is surrounded by rice fields with many opportunities for hiking.
Interaction with Guests
We check in with guests daily and are helpful in navigating your stay in Ubud. We have staff available to assist you with your every need. If you choose to dine in ubud and return after dark, someone will greet you and walk you back to your room. They will place Incense and offerings at your door daily and make sure your space is clean and you have what you need. There is nothing more spectacular than having a candlelit dinner under the stars. We will make sure you feel safe and very well cared for.
This is a hidden spot literally just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Ubud with its restaurants and shops, but it feels lost in time and like a total retreat. In the day you will only meet rice farmers and local women blessing the rice. At night you will only see fireflies and hear the rushing river, crickets and the distant sounds of the temple. An evening massage is a great way to end the day at sunset on the terrace. We have an in house masseuse who is available by appointment.
You can walk to town in five minutes or we are happy to rent you a scooter or arrange a driver for longer excursions. We can also assist with local hiking, biking or rafting tours.
Other Things to Note
This is a unique place and is not for everyone. It is eco tropical living at its best but with that comes nature in all its glory. Things to note: There is no air-conditioning although because of the location there is a constant cool breeze and you may even enjoy the quilt we provide at night. This cottage is a woven basket with a living bamboo and traditional grass roof leaving it totally open and in nature. Some people have asked about security. It is very secluded and very safe. However if you have valuables we are happy to lock them up for you. We have staff available to assist you and ensure you have what you need at all times. You will be very well cared for.
Sleeping in nature is something most of us don't do as we sleep in sealed rooms. It can be transformative to sleep in a natural setting, open to the cool night air, listening to the crickets and chirping geckos, the sounds of the nearby rushing stream with the fireflies glittering in the night. Don't let the unusual openness of the space deter you, this is an experience you won't soon forget.
Had an incredible experience at the eco cottage. Was very refreshing to be in a rice field under the stars with a gentle breeze drifting through. Wayan was a gentleman doing his best in all things. Quite hard to find as the location cannot be reached by car. Its roughly a 5min walk from the road through the rice fields. All in all a wonderful experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a truly natural experience
I had such a wonderful stay at the bamboo cottage. I caught a firefly and felt like Tinkerbell :)
No roosters to wake you up in the morning; just the trickling water in the rice field and the lovely breeze. How liberating to not have a key to hold onto from your accommodation or hotel room.
I felt privileged to stay in such a wonderful place, so close to the center. As if I was let in with the best kept secret of Ubud.
Last but not least, the breakfast was delicious and the staff helpful in every way, always with a smile on their face.
When I forgot my charger, they came to the rescue on their scooter to deliver it back to me.
We had a wonderful time in the ricefields! An amazing view and a very friendly and helpful staff. Just a short walk away from the buzz of Ubud this really was exactly what we hoped for: a small piece of paradise! The nights were very romantic underneath a starry sky and enough moonlight to sit outside and enjoy the sounds of nature. Waking up and looking out over the sawa's and the palmtrees was a treat every morning.
Thanks a lot for an unforgettable experience!
A perfect getaway for nature lovers. It was definitely an unforgettable experience. Whilst we could only stay one night, I don't know how comfortable we would have felt leaving our belongings as there is no lock. The candlelit dinner and breakfast were gorgeous and the in house masseuse was a great touch - so affordable at only 150k rupiah for 45 minutes. The staff were very friendly and helpful, helping us with our bags and even going to a shop to buy us drinks for our dinner. The outdoor shower was also incredible, would highly recommend staying here.
I had the pleasure of staying here unfortunately only for one night. This place is an absolute gem. A hidden treasure in a secluded location but within easy walking distance of Ubud centre. Wayan and all the staff were friendly and happy to help you with anything you need. I would highly recommend staying there and I'll definitely be back to visit again :)
