Rice Paddy Bungalows

Rice Paddy Bungalows

Old-style charm

More on Ubud

A few charming older-style homestays still exist in the back streets off Jalan Monkey Forest that have not yet given way to the brick and glass trend, and Rice Paddy Bungalows is one of the more charming and better maintained of these.

Travelfish says:

This friendly family-run establishment offers a row of double-storey bungalows with brick and tiled rooms downstairs and breezy wood and bamboo rooms above. Rooms are fan cooled and simply furnished, overlooking an immaculately kept garden. Some beds are mosquito netted, and some rooms are furnished with a double and single bed, suitable for families on a budget.

Bathrooms have a modern upgrade, and are tiled and spotless with hot-water showers, however they are still fairly basic. Furnished balconies offer a pleasant outlook, particularly those on the top level. We prefer the upper rooms as the bamboo walls and mats offer a cosy warm ambience, and the cooling breeze is refreshing, however the stairs up are narrow and steep. Included breakfast is served on your terrace, and WiFi is free.

Rice Paddy Bungalows is at the end of a small lane off Jalan Monkey Forest, just south of Adi Cottages. Closer to the football field, Kori Bali 2 is another older-style homestay with beautiful traditional carved and gilt doors, it offers nice views, but is not as well maintained as Rice Paddy Bungalows.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
