“Funky rooms, outdated facilities and strange vibe”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

We stayed a few nights here by recommendation of a friend. The owner Ketut was not friendly to us and he gave a really bad vibe. Our booking was not correct and there was an issue on arrival. While we waited patiently over an hour until it was sorted out, involving us paying more money of course even though it was the properties error, Ketut asked us if we wanted a beer. Upon checking out, of course we were charged for that drink (in addition to a few others we had). Not quite sure what has happened to hospitality here. The bathroom was very outdated in the apparent suite, the best room on property, however i think in general Bali accommodations below 75 USD a night don't get the bathroom right. If you go to Ubud, I would recommend a different place to spend the night.

Room Tip: If you are insistent to stay here, guess take the suite.

I was in Ketut's Place at the time of the Kuningan. It was an eye opener seeing the family at work, managing the festival and the business all at the same time.

I had a lovely and restful time in Ubud and I really didn't want to leave for our next destination!

Ketut's Place felt like my home away from home and I also felt very close to Pak Ketut and his family members.

Ketut's Place will definitely be my choice of stay the next time I have the privilege to return to Ubud!

Gorgeous garden feeling like you're in the heart of the jungle. There is a pool with a view down into a 'jungle' where you can watch squirrels eating coconuts on the canopy. A stream and bridge make the garden feel very chilled. You have your own stunning bungalow with beautifully ornate doors. You can eat breakfast in your own garden or by the pool restaurant. If you are considering it... I say go for it!

This place marks truly a remarkable unforgettable adventure that my husband and I had in Ubud. What a hidden gem! The staff is so welcoming and accommodating, pure and loving. We live all the way in CA and when we do make it back to Ubud this is where we will choose to spend our time. Unforgettably relaxing! The breakfast and fresh juices are delicious and the sound of the waterfall while you get massages daily you will remember forever. Thank you so much Ketut and family for making our honeymoon truly relaxing and unforgettable!

Room Tip: I would pay for the suite! You get the sound of the water fall while you sleep each night, its extre...

No doubts, the best kind of attention that someone can find. I spent one week there, and I really enjoyed it. You can rest peacefully, knowing that whichever you need/want will be solve with the help of Ketut, and his family.

We had a nice room and the pool was nice to dip in aft a hot day in Ubud city. Nyoman is a good host and makes an effort to make you feel welcome. Even though next time I would try an other accommodation. I think the price is a bit to high for the little things which bothered me. Not so clean bathroom and towels. A big whole in the mosquitonet. Small breakfast. And additional costs for things which seemed as offered as included at first. Other hotels we went to where more upfront about extra costs (or did not charge the same things like an extra piece of toast and egg for kids or white rice with soto ayam)

Spent three nights there and had an amazing time, all the people working there were very helpful and friendly and some of the food we had at their restaurant was incredible.

The environment of the place is magical, with a river and a small cascade next to the spa where you can get really good Bali-style massages, it felt like paradise.
