Enter a magical garden... full of statues, flowers, tropical fruit trees and an open air Jacuzzi!

Enjoy your characterful, air-conditioned room with en-suite bathroom and private balcony - where we'll serve you a delicious breakfast and drinks during the day.

Easy walking distance to everything Ubud has to offer - or let us suggest exciting day trips... full of stunning scenery, unique culture or adventure!

Our smiling, helpful staff are looking forward to welcoming you.

The space

Rumah Jepun is a calm oasis right in the middle of town.

This en-suite room, has a private balcony overlooking a delightfully lush tropical garden.

We offer a blend of modern facilities merged with traditional touches... a beautiful hand-carved Balinese door, brightly coloured furnishings and a modern bathroom.

The room is non-smoking and our daily housekeeping includes fresh flowers.

Walk down steps of the leaf-imprinted pathway, embedded with words such as 'harmony' and 'gratitude' to your room on the ground floor.

Stroll past banana and papaya trees, jepun and hibiscus flowers, chili and aloe vera plants as you walk down to the river at the bottom of the garden.

Sit on the bale (gazebo) with a cup of coffee and a book, or your laptop. It's a great place for meditation by the peaceful sound of the river and we can even arrange an outdoor massage there for you. Your room also has a yoga mat so you can practice under warm Balinese skies, on your balcony or in your room.

Although Rumah Jepun is set in a quiet and tranquil garden it's only 2 mins walk to the many shops, cafes, bars and spas along the busy Monkey Forest Road.

If this room isn't available try its sister rooms:
'Cute room, Jacuzzi and Jungle garden - yet central': https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/757039
or: 'Romantic Hideaway with 4 poster bed & Jacuzzi': https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/3734096

Note: all three rooms at Rumah Jepun are for singles, couples or two friends who are happy to share a double room. It is not suitable for children or those who may have difficulty with steps.

Guest access

Enjoy free wifi, aircon and a large private balcony overlooking the tropical garden.

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, Putu and Made (who you can see in the photo) 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, Juli, 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 approximately 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.

I had a great time staying at Rumah Jepun. It's a calm little oasis away from the hustle and bustle. The perfect location to just stroll around town to eat and shop whenever you want. The staff are great and make fantastic breakfast too. I didn't have to worry about anything. I'll be back - thank you!

Convenient location by restaurants, sights and shopping. Friendly and helpful support staff. Delicious and fresh breakfast every morning. Julie and Pasek have lots of resources to help make the most of your trip to Ubud!

I was surprised that it was so central. I somehow thought it was much more in nature. Probably because it was written that it was hard to find and that there was a river nearby. The street is easy to find for a taxi driver and also the number. Only the small path between the buildings is confusing the first time but they sent a guy to get us. I also didn't quite realised when I booked that it takes you like 2 minutes at the most to get right into the centre. Thanks, it was beautiful!

Great location. It's in a middle of Ubud but very quiet and peaceful. Julie is very nice and helpful.

We are very lucky to find Julie, her friendly staffs and this beautiful airbnb. Julie is so helpful and informative. She knows Ubud, if not the whole Bali, so well that we get to know the best part of it within such short three days. The garden is well designed and worth a tour. Breakfast is also very tasty. I will definitely come back for the next time.

Pasek User ProfilePasek is a superhost.

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.
