Hi Everyone, Please visit our lovely Nyoman Astana Bungalow, Have a nice trip in Bali
I didn't end up staying here as had to finish holiday early. But I did find that with my booking and email questions prior to arrival, and with my cancellation, Made was very responsive and helpful with her replies. I would be happy to book again if I head back to Ubud.
It is a little bit away from Ubud main road, rather it is near to Monkey forest. The host family is really nice, especially cute naughty boys :) The host helped me arrange tours and transportation. If you want to experience the local atmosphere with junglelike garden with tight budget, it will be interesting to try here. For those who think themselves as typical city people, however, this place might not be a good choice because the facilities are not that modern. It was an interesting experience for me :)
ce n est pas cher certes...
Mais l accueil est INEXISTANT, pas
De moustiquaire, la propreté douteuse et l eau (froide)
Coupée et remise de façon aléatoire.
De plus l emplacement n est pas
Idéal si vous n êtes pas motorisés.
The Nyoman Astana Bungalow in a word? Its very atmospheric, its tucked away from all the action on monkey forest road and Jalan Hanuman but is a good easy 20 min walk to anywhere in Ubud proper. I loved its proximity to ARMA and its quiet almost meditative calm.
Made and her family are sweet and discreet and allow you your privacy (make great breakfasts too!)
The atmosphere comes at a cost- the Bungalow is old and has very beautiful Balinese adornment in all the rooms, but the bathrooms leave much to be desired, with ancient plumbing and semi-functional everything else.
All in all I enjoyed my stay in Ubud and was glad to have a homely place to come back to.
