Photo of Narasoma Homestay
Homestay by name, it’s more like a small hotel — you won’t get the same feel for local family life as you will in some of the smaller places around Ubud.

Narasoma Homestay’s focus is health and wellbeing, with a retreat centre as well as several yoga spaces and a spa, plus the grounds shelter a meditation cave. A mix of rooms range from Balinese classic styling in the family compound, to those in the modern retreat centre and across the river, a handful of private villas, all woven within lush tropical gardens including a wonderful riverfront swimming pool.

Housed in a triple-storey building the spacious and clean standard rooms are individually styled with traditional comfortable furnishings including several with ornately carved beds, some enjoying views to Mount Agung. A choice of fan-cooled or air-con is available. Hot-water bathrooms follow the same classic style as the rooms and some provide tubs. We loved the ground floor suites (in separate buildings): palatial Balinese baroque with ornately carved stonework and classical decor touches. These rooms are a little pricer than the standard, but worth the extra rupiah. Rooms in the retreat centre are more like a standard hotel, but still have a classic Balinese feel.

All categories offer private terraces with comfortable seating and all rooms are equipped with a personal safe and WiFi. Narasoma Homestay’s infinity swimming pool is terrific, the green waters reflecting the terraced greenery across the river. Sun loungers, shady pavilions and tables and chairs surround the pool, overlooked by a small restaurant where your included breakfast is served. The spa at Narasoma receives high praise and offers a range of massages and scrubs.

We love the open and spacious feeling of Narasoma Homestay; the riverside location doesn’t feel as hemmed in as many other options in this area. Nearby Gayatri 2 Bungalows also offer lovely Balinese-style rooms in their midrange category, however their lower priced rooms are not as good value.
