“Perfection”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

From the moment we entered Mawa House we were in love , with the family, the staff, the location, the beauty and absolute attention to detail that Mawa house offers . This is a small intimate place behind the family homes, it is runs to perfection. The breakfast delicious, our room everything you need for comfort.
If you want to experience a little of Bali life you have the opportunity to participate on some occasions.
The garden beautiful, the staff treat you like you are part of the family and you are special and cared about.
The only thing I did not like was having to leave! Be careful this place is special and cant be booked months in advance, so dont hesitate.

Room Tip: If you want complete privacy , perhaps you need to make a request . There are 2 rooms close by the p...

Great value for money at Mawa House! It feels like staying in a 5 star hotel because there are so many attentions and respect for the guests. Rooms are nice, clean, with beautiful bed sheets. Bathroom is excellent too (one of the best shower I had in Bali). Nice and clean swimming pool. Very good breakfast. Friendly and efficient staff. Be careful, this hotel is small and is always full, so make sure you book ahead. Only one bad point: wifi connection was not stable when I was there.

It is located behind the Monkey Forest (so away from the busy and somewhat crowded center) and it is only a 5 min scooter drive or 15 min walk from Monkey Forest road. If you want to go to Ubud main street, allow 30 min walk because Monkey Forest road is long. But the hotel can organise un scooter ride for you.

And if you do not fancy going in Ubud center, there are good restaurants around Mawa House. I recommend just accross the road Chili cafe. And 100 m on the right, Laka Leke restaurant and its waterlilies.

We stayed 3 nights at Mawa and enjoyed not only beautifully landscaped surroundings and a romantic room, but the kindness of the people who work there. Putu spent time talking with us and answering our many questions about Balinese Hinduism and the ceremonies.

The location was ideal for us as it was a 10 minute walk to Ubud on the edge of Monkey Forest. Bring a flashlight for walking home from dinner. Mawa is located in a quiet neighborhood behind a family compound. It was a magical experience for us!

The breakfast was delicious, especially the Nasi Goreng.

Absolutely lovely hotel!! Everything about it gets 5 stars from me- especially the attention from the staff! Great rooms, super clean, spacious bathrooms, excellent breakfast served right outside your room on the patio/balcony, enjoyed the pool as well at the end of the day- just wonderful!!

Ok so the "booking system" stuffed up and we were placed across the road for the first night in an OK room with very little atmosphere. We weren't offered a discount for this, but at least we had a bed.

BUT

When we actually got to Mawa House it was exceptional. Great room, great breakfast, excellent staff, lovely little pool, and beautiful gardens. Will stay here again and definitely recommend it to friends.

Hesitate to write this as would be great to keep this a secret but how can I not share! Highly recommend staying here. The hotel is so beautifully presented and new you feel like you've stepped into an oasis and your home. The staff are like no other and treat you like family ensuring you are very comfortable. A turndown service with mosquito nets on the bed is so cute and they serve you breakfast outside your door. Can't believe the vallue for money and will definitely be back! So close to the monkey forest and town. Must stay here!

Room Tip: Any room! downstairs ones seem bigger
