Rumah Jelita

Rumah Jelita

Stylish and serene hidden homestay

More on Ubud

The only reason we stumbled upon Rumah Jelita is we followed someone wheeling a bag down an unmarked lane. We’re usually not stalkers, but on this occasion our curiosity was rewarded. This wonderful serene little homestay offers delightfully tranquil rooms and a breezy leafy outlook over a ridge and attractive fragrant garden.

Travelfish says:

Two of the generous glass-fronted, light-filled airy rooms are fan-cooled, and the third provides air-con with a choice of twin or double beds. The style is simple but striking with a coloured themed wall and matching accessories. Chic decorative touches offer an air of sophistication. Furniture is whitewashed wood and quality linens grace the bouncy comfy beds.

Sparking clean tiled ensuite bathrooms with black lava stone walls and natural stone washbasins are equipped with hot showers.

A wide spacious communal terrace fronts the rooms with a private table and chairs for each room and a self-serve hot drink station set up at one end to make yourself a cuppa anytime. There’s no swimming pool, but the small garden provides some comfortable sun-lounges to get your dose of vitamin D, and swimming pools are available to use at the neighbouring bungalows for a small fee. Breakfast and WiFi are included in the rates.

We didn’t meet the owner, but guests we spoke to said he was very friendly, the staff we met were helpful, but had limited English. Rumah Jelita is hidden behind Warsas Bungalows on Jalan Monkey Forest — walk into Warsas and follow the small lane on the right. Even though it’s conveniently close to the busy street, Rumah Jelita is devoid of traffic noise and feels like you’re deeply ensconced in the countryside.

If you’d prefer accommodation with a swimming pool, Ubud Lestari and Bumi Muwa, both in laneways off Jalan Monkey Forest provide good value stylish rooms.
