Reviewed 4 September 2013

Unfortunalely we only had 2 nights at this accommodation. We loved the rooms especially the bathrooms which were semi open. The beds were extremely comfortable and the service was just great. We enjoyed sitting around the pool area relaxing. The breakfasts were delightful and we were spoilt for choice.

Room Tip: We were in a room for a couple I think they are all pretty much the same. We looked out over the ric...

If you want peace and quiet this is the place to go. The hotel is loacated down a long alley way and backs on the rice fields and a flowing stream at the back of the units. The staff are extremely friendly and very efficient and the rooms are absolutely beautiful. Every afternoon at 3-6pm there is "high tea" If you go to the office you can order coffee/tea and cake for free and they will bring it to your room. As you are located out of the hussle and bussle the hotel provides you with a free car service from early in the morning until 10pm at night. I would recommend this hotel (well not really a hotel, there are only 10 units there) to anyone that wants to wind down from all of the mayhem of Kuta/Legian and just kick back and relax..

Room Tip: All rooms are great, but take a CD player and kettle if you want to make your own coffee.

Having come from lovely lombok we were a bit out of pace with the ubud masses, so loved coming back to this lovely village outside of town backing on the rice fields. I found the outdoor shower with views superbly relaxing and slept great with the sounds of the countryside all around us. Particularly liked having breakfast brought to our balcony each morning. Hotel staff were also very helpful - they arranged a very reasonably priced scooter rental for me, duly providing one with two helmets and two mirrors as requested, and were very helpful with shuttles in to and from town, and made dinner reservations for us. Overall a great stay and value for money in pricey (for indonesia) ubud

The was our best hotel experience during our holiday in Indonesia. Alam Jiwa is placed approx. 15 min. away from the center of Ubud (walking distance). The center of Ubud is noisy and full of shops and tourists. Therefore we loved the location of Alam Jiwa. You have to pass the monkey forrest to get down town. The hotel has a free shuttle if you ask for this. We used it primarily to be picked up in the evening after dinner. The staff is vey pleasant and service minded. We would certainly stay here again. The internet connection is very poor and unstable.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough. We shared the Cendrahwasih Suite with friends and two other couples had deluxe rooms - the comments from all were glowing. The rooms are all spacious and beautifully appointed. The staff are absolutely first rate and all go out of there was to help. Located as it is a short distance away from Ubud, Alam Jiwa provides a calm and peaceful sanctuary. The shuttle service to town was great but only really needed if you have some doubt about where you are going. The walk through the Monkey Forest to town is short and the motorcycle path that borders the Monkey Forest is not too daunting even in the dark of the night (and there are no lights). Our only regret is that we only booked for two nights - neither we nor or travelling companions wanted to move on.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Alam Jiwa and will be back to stay for longer. The location near the Monkey Forest is great for a walk, a little shopping or to get food. In my opinion, the website pictures do not do this place justice. It is quiet, zen-like, relaxing and peaceful. We stayed in the Jalak Bali which is on the second floor of the second building from the pool. The bedroom was HUGE, porch spacious and so comfortable for reading, lounging or having breakfast. The view over the rice paddies is beautiful and the sound of the running water provided a soothing background sound. The food was fabulous...best banana breakfast drink EVER!! The free shuttle service was great for a quick lunch and shopping in Ubud. We had an early flight out and were given a box breakfast to go!

Room Tip: The Jalak Bali was a great size room with huge bathroom, tub and very private outdoor shower. We ha...
