Guest access

Enjoy free wifi, aircon and a large private balcony overlooking the tropical garden, featuring the jacuzzi in the jungle!

You can lay on a sunbed or chill out in the bale (a thatched gazebo) next to the river.

Drinking water is freely available and our housekeeper will also make you a choice of breakfasts, plus tea and coffee during the day.

In your wardrobe is a box of 9 items that might come in handy:

A hairdryer
A torch (sometimes there are power cuts in Bali)
An adaptor
A book to read (“A Taste of Bali” or “Life’s Journeys” - both feature my poems)
A Lonely Planet guide to Indonesia
A pack of cards
A fan (it gets hot in Bali)
A mosquito repellant
A stip – otherwise known as a catapult. You see, occasionally we get monkeys visiting Rumah Jepun. To scare them off, harmlessly, simply ‘ping’ the empty catapult at them!

Oh and there's a yoga mat in your wardrobe too!

An iron and ironing board, an electric fan, an extra pillow or weighing scales are also available - just ask!

Interaction with guests

Our friendly, live-in staff, Gede and Ketut (who you can see in the photos) will greet you and offer a welcome drink.

If we know your arrival time they can also help to bring your bags from the street to your room.

Long term resident, Julie, is usually here to say 'hello' too and can answer queries and have a chat about Bali and its unique culture. Maybe join her on an insightful garden tour, highlighting many cultural aspects of Bali.

Some guests have even joined her for a meal, a game of cards or a night-out dancing.

Of course, some guests just want time and space to themselves and we respect that.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at Rumah Jepun - the home of a poet/lyricist (published in 'A Taste of Bali' and 'Life's Journeys').

Other things to note

Bali is a tropical island so the weather tends to be warm, to hot, all year round, frequently reaching 30 deg c.

Some swimming pools are available to the public for a small fee, alternatively the nearest beach is just over an hour away.

The volcano is just over an hour away too - in the opposite direction! Maybe you want to go to the hot springs there?

Hey, why not get your phone unlocked before you come to Bali - that way you can get a cheap sim card here and be able to contact us, or your driver, should you need help/advice while out and about.

We're in a natural environment with a jungle backdrop.

Please be aware that our traditional Balinese doors could be challenging for really tall guests and that Rumah Jepun is not suitable for children or those who may have difficulty with steps.

Beautiful place to stay. 5 minute walk to Monkey Forest. Close to markets and Pasek and the team arranged all of our volcano/waterfall/plantation/rice terrace excursions. Amazing!

SO in love with this place. We stayed at multiple AirBnBs in Bali and they have received a range of ratings, but if I could give this place 10 stars I would. The room was clean and had your basic needs (bonus on Bali books to read and yoga mat!), but the real difference is made by three things: 1. the location is absolutely perfect to explore Ubud, yet somehow still quiet when you are tired of motor noise, 2. The garden and grounds are gorgeous! Authentic Balinese and so cozy, 3. The staff. I can't say enough about the sweetness of Ketut and his delicious breakfast. And their driver, Jati, ended up taking us around on tours for two days after meeting him! He got us great deals on things to do, explained everything with sweet patience, spoke wonderful English, and was just so much fun to hang out with. Last thing - plan to stay more days in Ubud than you already are. There is SO much culture and things to do here, we with we could have spent more than the 5 days we did.

When we arrived in ubud, we were eager to crash into our beds as we were tired. The walk to the room was really long, but it was totally worth as we entered our Rumah jepun! The jacuzzi was relaxing and breakfast was good. There were books to read and playing cards. However, the WiFi signal was weak. The host was kind and helpful. We loved our stay!

We had a wonderful stay at Rumah Jepun! The location was the perfect balance of central and accessible while also being quiet and secluded. The staff were friendly and accommodating, eager to connect us with activities to make our time in Ubud what we were looking for. The only problem during our stay was a miscommunication regarding the price of a tour we had booked, so make sure you confirm the price either with the tour company or the staff on-site before leaving for any activity. We highly recommend this villa -- it was comfortable, homey, relaxing, and a great location in Ubud.

We spent wonderful 6 days in this little paradise. Initially we planned to stay for 3 days only but this place was so nice and Ubud has so much to offer that we decided to stay longer. Our room was surrounded with the lush and peaceful garden. Our hosts were amazing, they helped us in everything we needed including organizing tours and arranging transportation. The staff members truly demonstrated the unique kindness and friendliness of Balinese people. The breakfast was delicious. Our room was cleaned on a daily basis and we had everything we could need. The place is very well-located in the center of the city somewhat still hidden from Ubud's noise. Perfect choice!!!! Thank you to all of you for making our staying so happy and memorable.

We stayed three nights here and totally recommend this place. If you want to stay central right in the city, with lots of restaurants and the market around, but also want to have some quiet, peaceful time at your veranda, this is the perfect place! But it's quite hidden, so we recommend the hotel pickup (extra cost), but your merely will find the place by your own. The garden in front of our room was beautiful and has a whirlpool for free use. The room itself and the bathroom are very clean and furnished with everything you need. The staff is so friendly and helpful that we really felt welcome every time. You can choose between three dishes for breakfast, everything is cooked freshly and tasted deliciously. You get tons of helpful information in a folder at the room, and also by Julie who occasionally stepped by for a little chat. If we visite Bali and Ubud again, we definitely will stay here again.

Pasek and the Rumah Jepun team are looking forward to welcoming you.

We hope you'll experience Balinese culture, enjoy delicious food and marvel at nature's tropical beauty, unique architecture and the thought-provoking temples on this enchanting island.

It's inspiration like this that's turned people into poets, authors, singer/songwriters, artists and yoga & meditation practitioners.

While here you'll meet our friendly, helpful staff Gede, Botax and Ketut (who make great pancakes for breakfast!) and long term resident Julie.

Come and visit Ubud and experience the beauty and inspiration for yourself.

Bali - a place like no other.
