The bathroom runs both hot and cold water, and the House is equipped with a safety box, a mini bar fridge, AC, and in room Estate intercom. The house water supply is triple filtered using a colloidal silver and reverse osmosis process.

I wish we could have stayed longer. The Manis House is quaint and cozy just as described. No room to hang out inside (except for in bed) but really this place is all about the many many nooks, lounge chairs, gazebos, etc that you can find scattered around the property outside. The views are the best you'll find in Ubud and a scramble down to the river is amazing! The outdoor shower was also idyllic. The restaurant is delicious (definitely pricier but it was so good and so healthy it didn't matter). With only 2 nights here we really didn't want to leave the property and would set up camp by the pool, overlooking the rice fields, or in one of the gazebos for hours. The staff have been some of the nicest people we've met in Bali. This is truly a place that will make you slow down and appreciate everything and everyone around you.
This place is beautiful, and a great spot to relax surrounded by nature. The food was the best I'd had in Bali - delicious, and fresh. Staff were very attentive, and helped us organise a number of activities. A few of our towels weren't clean on arrival, but may have been because the bathroom was outside. I think it was a little overpriced, at $200 AUD a night including AirBNB fees. It's a fair way out of town - although they offer a shuttle twice a day, but be prepared to tip the driver. Also $60 for a pedicure and manicure is ridiculous.
Our experience at Babu Indah was fantastic. My husband and I felt so welcome and taken care of during our 4 night stay in their "sweet" house. The eco-friendly, local and sustainable theme throughout the property was refreshing and spirit renewing.The property really thought of everything. This is a truly unique experience you won't get anywhere else. The food was so spectacular we had just about every meal here and only ate out when we were touring! The staff was friendly and helpful. We even saw the owners in the restaurant often. They were very personable and would talk to us about our day and give us advice on what else to see in Bali. The front desk was happy to arrange tours and drivers for us. The grounds were naturally beautiful and so picturesque. A walk down to the river is also a must!
Manis "sweet" house is a quaint getaway. The bed was fine for two people (full size) and very comfy. The bathroom was really fun to have private but essentially outdoors! You have to be ok with nature since the old house is almost like luxuriously camping and may allow some bugs in, but with the turn down service daily they light a bug coil and set the curtains down around the bed. We never had a problem. Since this house is the closest to the front desk and restaurant there is a little noise from fellow guests if you want to get to sleep before dinner ends. Also, since Bambu Indah is very close to the village there are many roosters that will wake up almost before sunrise. But, they provide earplugs which worked like a charm. Also, there is no lock on the door from the outside. They do provide a safe inside the house for any valuables which was great. We never once felt unsafe.
We used just about all the property's amenities. We even booked a couples massage. This was a traditional Balinese massage so a slight warning to anyone coming from a modest culture, you will be seen and touched (back side and chest). Our only slight "complaint" which we were apologized and warned about was the small construction around the property during the day. Since everything is made of bamboo and uninsulated houses, you can hear a lot of what's going on around the property. Power tools weren't the most relaxing sound during the massage, but we knew that was going to happen. They are most likely completed with their projects now so don't let that stop you from this wonderful experience!!
I have already recommended this property to friends and would definitely recommend their sweet house for any single traveler or couple who don't need a ton of space and are OK with a little village noise. We spent the first half of our trip at the touristy, crowded, hassling beaches of Seminyak. I would recommend completely forgoing that area and go straight to Bambu Indah!
My stay here was absolutely wonderful! The room was very clean and comfortable, the staff was outstanding and the food a delight. I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Ubud or surrounding areas. As a first time traveller to Bali, I felt even more excited about my trip after arriving to this beautiful resort. Thank you for memories of a lifetime!
