My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time staying at Nirvana Pension. I called a day before we arrived and arrange with Rai to stay in a fan-only room for 350,000 rupiah a night; a bit more than we were expecting to pay for low season, but when we arrived, we realized how well worth it was. We had a nice room downstairs that had a lovely little garden and patio out in front. Decor is nice, bed was a comfy four poster queen with mosquito netting. Bathroom was a comfortably sized wet bathroom with hot water 24/7. Breakfasts were delicious-- I recommend the Balinese cake, which you have to request a day in advance. The fresh fruit salad was also a favorite.
The family we stayed with was very kind and helpful. The dogs that live there are very cute and friendly, if not a little shy. Wayan, who we met over breakfast the first day, was very helpful in arranging for us to go to the Monkey forest, see one of the best Balinese dance performances we saw during our stay, as well as arrange for a shuttle/ferry to Gili Trawangan, our next destination.
We loved the location of this place, too-- it's tucked off a main road along a small alley, so even though it is in the heart of Ubud, it is a quiet, relaxing spot. Plenty of lovely massage places nearby, delicious restaurants, and big attractions like the palace and market are less than ten minutes walking away. So all in all, while we paid a bit more than we were hoping to, the convenient location, service, and breakfast made it totally worth it. We already want to come back to Ubud; if we do, this place will definitely be our go-to again!
