About this listing

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, Gede and Ketut (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, 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 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.

Enjoyed my time so much at this AirBnB that I spent a lot of time just hanging out there. Very nice and cosy premises, personal terraces around a lovely garden and attentive staff serving homemade breakfast and Balinese coffee. For me personally the location was also great with nice restaurants, massages, convenience shops just meters away. Also they arranged for a driver to pick me up at the airport which took out all the stress from finding the place and was very convenient after a long flight. On top of it they arranged for me to go to a nice local spa after the flight while waiting for a room. All in all, I felt really well taken care off at this AirBnB, I wish I could have stayed longer.

Extremely accommodating, we made the booking one hour before checking in because we didn't like our original accommodation. The room was very clean and had AC which apparently is not common in accommodations in Ubud. The surroundings were very pretty. They also give you a complimentary fresh cold juice upon arrival, free bug repellent, towels and a guide to the major attractions.

We had an absolutely amazing stay here! The staff is so accommodating and friendly and made us feel right at home. The accommodations are clean and romantic and are super close to the main streets. An incredible experience, cannot recommend this place enough :) hope to be back soon!

It was a bit hard to find. There wasn't much of signage at the main street. It was an adventure looking for the house. If you're looking to feel a little Alice and Wonderland and Jungle Book...this is it. You can't help but feel the enormous love that was poured into this home. What I loved most was that our host had a basket of amenities that she knew would could in handy. Breakfast was amazing, but it's the garden I'll remember most.

Response from Pasek:
So glad you appreciated the garden, breakfast and amenities etc. Yes, we are a little hard to find... and that's exactly why we encourage guests to let us arrange a pick up. It's also why we say, 'If you do make your own way here please take good note of our written directions, provided by Airbnb, and let us know your arrival time so our staff can meet you on the street and help bring your bags to Rumah Jepun.' For info, we're unable to provide an accurate map because our little pathway doesn't clearly show up on any map and, as there are also many other little pathways off of the Monkey Forest Road, it could easily be confusing anyway. This is why we provide detailed written directions with landmarks and why we ask for an arrival time, so we can meet guests on the street. Anyway, thank you for staying with us and for the feedback too.

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.
