ACCOMMODATIONS IN UBUD, BALI

In and around Ubud, there are literally hundreds of homestays, guesthouses, hotels and villas,

ranging from as little as Rp 100,000 ( 6.50 / USD 7.50) to Rp 21,000,000 (1,350 / USD 1,500) per night.

 

We want our students to be satisfied with our Bali Immersion Program,

and not be dissatisfied with our accommodation recommendations.

Therefore, we ask all students to search for and arrange their own accommodation.

OUR SUGGESTIONS

1.   SEARCH FOR ACCOMMODATIONS USING BOOKING.COM

BOOKING.COM consistently turns up the best deals.  Further, most accommodations on the site allow you to pay on arrival and do not require a prepayment to secure your reservation.

2.   WHEN SEARCHING :

*   Enter your Destination as "Ubud, Bali."

 

*   Set filters based on "Your Budget" and the "Property Type" you desire (hotel, guest house, homestay, etc).

Keep in mind that guest houses and homestays are generally more economical than hotels, and they usually provide a much better opportunity to use and develop your Bahasa Indonesia skills.

3.   ONCE YOU HAVE SELECTED YOUR ACCOMMODATION, INFORM LSI OF YOUR CHOICE.

IMPORTANT NOTES

1.  Please ensure that your accomodation-of-choice has suitable space available

     for your daily language sessions (other than in your room).

When making an online reservation with BOOKING.COM, there is an option to "Contact your host for more details before booking your stay." In this section . . .

You can ask if your room comes with a terrace or balcony spacious enough for 1 to 4 learners and an Instructor.

.

Or you can enquire about other spaces on the property where you might be able to study without distraction (a gazebo, a yoga room, a quiet seating area, etc).

​2.  If your party is greater than 2 persons, you might want to check with your host

     about the maximum occupancy of the rooms you are booking.

Surprisingly, rooms priced at Rp 700,000 ( 45 / USD 50) and above, are sometimes very large and are often equipped with a second bed as part of the regular furnishings.

Therefore, it's occasionally possible to secure better 'per person' rates by booking larger and more expensive rooms.

Although we're not in the business of "making recommendations," our Instructors report that these properties

Nestled in a quiet tropical garden with a pool at its centre, the Okawati has a "shaded jungle feel."  The hotel offers guest rooms in several price ranges - from modern rooms at about Rp 350,000 to 400,000 ( 23-26 / USD 25-29 ); to traditionally-styled rooms with thatched roofs at Rp 550,000 to 900,000 ( 35-58 / USD 40-64); to family rooms at Rp 750,000 to 1,150,000 ( 48-74 / USD 53-82).

Be sure to inform the host that you will be having language lessons during your stay, and ensure that your room has a good-sized terrace or balcony for your studies.

CENDANA RESORT & SPA

Booking.com Rating :  8.4  Very Good

Approximately Rp 575,000 to 825,000/night

€ 37-53 / USD 41-59 / CAD 54-78 / SGD 56-81 / AUD 60-85

Tucked away down a small street off Monkey Forest Road, the gates of Cendana open to reveal a large and very sunny property, complete with 4 two-level buildings of accommodations, 2 pools, several gazebos scattered around the grounds, and a large open-air restaurant to relax with a good book and a drink.

 

Cendana offers standard rooms at Rp 575,000 ( 37 / USD 41); superior rooms at Rp 650,000 ( 42 / USD 46); and deluxe rooms at Rp 825,000 ( 53 / USD 59).

 

Whilst all rooms are large enough to accommodate an extra bed if requested, some of the superior rooms we've seen are actually furnished with 2 queen-sized beds!  (It might be worthwhile to ask about these rooms if you are a party of 4 or more; there could be some considerable cost savings.)

 

Cendana's rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, a safe deposit box, a small refrigerator and a full ensuite bathroom. Room rates include breakfast, and complimentary Wi-Fi is available in all areas of the property.

 

There is plenty of space for language instruction at Cendana, given the hotel's spacious grounds and multiple seating areas.

 

Nevertheless, be sure to inform the host that you will be having language lessons during your stay, and ensure that you are booked in a room with a good-sized terrace or balcony for your studies.

 

Alternatively, there is an open-air yoga space above the restaurant that is ideal for language instruction.

Established by an Australian-born spiritual Yoga practitioner and her Balinese husband, the grounds and accommodations of this tranquil oasis are truly exquisite, reflecting the art and beauty of the Balinese culture.  

 

After passing through an impressive reception building decorated with fine Indonesian furnishings and a pool surrounded by lush gardens, the property descends into a mammoth river gorge with guest cottages scattered down the hill (from the reception building at the top to the river bed at the bottom) and up the other side. 

 

Perusing the pictures on Narasoma's website, one might suspect that its accommodations are "out of reach" . . . but, surprisingly, Narsoma's rates are quite reasonable, considering the quality and size of it's suites and villas,

           

Sadly, however, the Narasoma site offers no rate information whatsoever.
