Before I moved to Ubud, I decided to spend a few days there, staying at Nirvana Pension www.nirvanaku.com, which had been recommended to me by a friend, and since I trust her judgment, I decided that’s the place.
Nirvana Pension is owned and run by Pak Nyoman and his wife, Ibu Rai, with the help of other family member. They live at Nirvana, and sitting down and having a chat with these amazing people, you get the feeling that you are part of the family. The atmosphere is relaxing, and you can let your creativity flow, signing up for a batik painting course. Pak Nyoman and his apprentices look after their students in a caring and fun way – with children being welcome as well
The lush, tropical garden, interspersed with works of art, family shrines, and walls covered with framed water colours, and oil and batik paintings, are an oasis of calm, away from the hustle and bustle of “downtown” Ubud, which is actually only a couple of minutes by foot from Nirvana.
Dani Home Stay in Peliatan is a lovely homestay in a traditional Balinese family compound, where three generations of the same family live. Dani has 5 rooms, with 3 more just being build. Prices start at around rp150.000 which includes breakfast, tax & service. Some rooms have a kitchen, some have air con, all have hot/cold water.
Peliatan is about 10-15 minutes by foot from Ubud central – before lunch time there are plenty of bemos doing this route. They also operate in the afternoon, just not as frequently.
Please note that Dani Home Stay is also available for long term rental – at very good rates!
For bookings please phone Dani (he speaks good English) on international: +6285238870176 or local: 085238870176 or send an email email@example.com
