i had a very good exprience staying here. It feels so homely.
Rooms are spacious and view is just beautiful. The toilet is very clean and amidst the paddy field, it is just magical. Love the balcony that they serve breakfast. Just made life more beautiful. Initially we planned to stay over for 2 nights, but ended up extended our stay for another 2 more nights. Miss the breakfast there and the family that runs this cottage is more than friendly and helpful and it was indeed the best stay I had in Bali. Will be back again.. :)

Reviewed 4 February 2013

We stayed in Hibiscus cottages, now called Bali Moon, for 5 days during our 1-month honeymoon in Bali in September 2012. We moved there from another hotel and ended up wishing we moved there much earlier!
We stayed in the best room - the one on the third floor. Third floor is high for Ubud, so the view is gorgeous!!! And the room was filled with natural light and fresh air all day. Below are detailed pros and cons of this hotel.

PROS
- Location is great. It is located on Jalan Bisma, a little, quite, but central street of Ubud,in large and beautiful ricefield.
- Absolutely beautiful Balinese style interiors, large rooms with large bathroom (it's like a separate room :)) and a large balcony/terrace!
- Everything is very clean, linens fresh, etc. We've seen no spiders, ants or any other insects.
- Everything was well functioning.Our wardrobe's lock broke once, but we asked for help and a guy came right away and was struggling until he managed to open it ))
- Tasty breakfasts, brought to you whenever you wake up and ask for breakfast.
- Low price! And the price is very much subject to negotiations - show the hosts you love there cottages, smile and ask for a honeymoon/long stay/pay right away/etc discount :)
- This guesthouse is run by a Balinese family, who live right there. They are very friendly and very helpful, but they won't bother you with questions or be expressly polite. They are very unobtrusive, living with them is like living a normal quite life, we loved it! If you want to support good local people, stay in this guesthouse!

CONS
- No swimming pool. But here is what you need to understand - if you are an active tourist and go out during the day and only come in the evening, you won't need pool in Ubud - evenings in Ubud are COLD. And hotels which have pools are instantaneously more expensive - so you pay more for smth you won't use.
- Little parking space. We rented a motorbike and needed to park it near our hotels. This hotel has a very narrow road in the middle of rice field leading to it, and small parking space, so parking it RIGHT next to the hotel was not very convenient.
- WiFi was not working well in our room (the highest room in the hotel), but worked just fine on the balcony. I believe there must be no problem with all other rooms.

So overall, we'd highly recommend this guesthouse to people who are active and prefer to go out rather than chill all day in their hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the room on the third floor if it is available - it is filled with natural light and the view...

I booked three or four months before, anyway they gave us the worst room. No view, a light outside on your face during all night that we could not turn off, very bad matress, everything bad. We had quite a big luggage, but we did not have any help from the staff. When I asked for transport, they just answered:go tho main street and you will find one. It is really very unusual, almost everybody from the hotels in Bali is nice. I was lucky that I booked for one night, afterbthat we got a very good place.

Room Tip: Do not go!

I would recommend this place to everyone who wants to stay in a quieter area of Ubud. The staff is really friendly and welcoming, the service great and the rooms are large, clean and nice. The owner is also very friendly and he will help you with whatever questions you might habe!

A top little place very close to everything, yet out of the hustle and bustle. Friendly staff, clean and airy rooms with great views over rice paddies. Quite a few guesthouses in this area so common to see people walking along narrow paths crisscrossing paddies. Lots of ducks frequent the area. Quite cute seeing all the ducks with their babies out for a walk. Ask for front room - for the best views. Booked through booking.com.

Hibiscus Cottages are located in a rice field off Jl Bisma. You have to walk down a small alley and then across a small rice paddy. Would be more beautiful if it wasn't a building site at the mo but they are expanding so fair enough. The staff are all lovely, the breakfast is good and they upgraded my room as no one else was staying there for free so I had air con and the balcony overlooking the rice field. Clean room, good shower. Take mosquito coils for the balcony, I was eaten alive whilst listening to a symphony of animals at night! Worth a stay. Could prob find cheaper but worth £18 a night. I was a female staying alone and although it is probably very safe, I didn't feel comfortable walking into the town at night so moved to a cheaper, more central guesthouse after the three nights I had booked. Worth a couple of nights here though.

This is the place if you like a quiet and paddy field view from your room. It is a typical Balinese style cottage. The paddy field view is great in the morning.

The staffs are friendly and they do serve the breakfast outside your room. You can have your breakfast while enjoying the paddy field view.

Tips: bring along a small touch light with you for going out / coming back to the cottage in the night time.
