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.

The space

This is a woven house made almost entirely of bamboo. It is open air and as close to living in nature as you get.

Guest access

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.

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.

Poor/no WiFi connection at the cottage (good signal at the other rooms) and due to humid weather, moist and stinky sheets. Cottage has some privacy issues even though it has its "own" and "private" path and enterance. Unfortunately all other visitors (and sorry to say that but some of staff) were abusing that enterance and private path by opening the door and not closing it... other than that; great and delicious food, amazing staff and team members. (No need to mention about frogs, insects, geckos etc.)

Response from Wayan:
We are sorry to hear you had troubles during your stay. Wifi in Bali is not always reliable but, with few exceptions the wifi in the cottage is good and reliable so sorry for the bad luck. you did stay with us during a crazy rainy period and we do appologise that the linnes seemed a bit moist. we wash and hot dry them everyday fresh but do understand that this can be a challenge in this weather. We are now using an all natural linen spray to help combat this challenge. We appreciate your feedback that guests were breaking the rules and ignoring signs they should not use the cottage path. we have hope to rectify this with a lock and key on the cottage gate that only the cottage guests will have. again we really appreciate your feedback and hope that you will visit us again.

If you are into the eco lodging thing then it's probably your thing! It was a new and interesting, don't think I could do it for more than a week(just a personal thing). The staff was super friendly and the pool/social spot was a really fun spot. I feel like they actually under sell how nice the spot truly is. A couple bugs and some rice fields never hurt anyone. Great place to unwind.... ohh and the serve cold beer!

The cottage is surrounded by ricefield paddies, which is amazing. Even though it is only a small walk to the centre of Ubud the area around the cottage is very peaceful and quiet. We were surprised that there was a common area as well which included a bar and swimmingpool, which we didn't even know beforehand. Also, the breakfast was delicious. The only downsides were the fact that the top bed was quite small for two people, which you should keep in mind when booking for 4 people. Also, the wifi wasn't always working, but this might be temporary. For the people concerned about insects/reptiles, even though the cottage is very open there are barely any of them in it. The fireflies which were flying in and around the cottage were a very nice surprise as well. Overall an incredible accomodation!

We stayed in the eco cottage on the edge of Wayan's property. The cottage is in the middle of a working rice field and feels very secluded. It is an inside/outside cottage (no complete walls - curtains are used) so there were a lot of bugs as expected but the beds came with good mosquito nets. Loved the outdoor shower. The service was great as well - Wayan is very communicative and helped show us to the property when we arrived late at night.

This is a truly unique and exceptional cottage in a quiet area of Ubud (yet only a 10 min walk to the city centre). Was such a great experience sleeping amongst the rice fields, listening to the local wildlife (which is harmless!) and the river flowing. What surprised us was there is a communal area about 200m from the cottage where you can purcahse great and cheap food and drinks, a pool and a swing. Great area to socialise with other staying around the complex, and then later head back to the cottage for privacy. We loved our stay and definitely will be back. If you can stay here while in Ubud, it's totally worth it!
