Ketut's Place
Ranked #53 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

One of the longest-running places in Ubud, with beautiful grounds and a decent pool, but can't hide its age. While clean and well-kept, the towels, sheets and pillows had a bad smell, which easily happens in a humid tropical climate, but that doesn't make it any more pleasant, just like an ant-invaded bathroom despite the unhealthy spraying. While it is nice to have a pool, the size is quite small and there are only 4 deckchairs to relax, there wouldn't be any space for a lot more either. Not sure if those rooms under the pool down the steep side of the valley are still in use but I wouldn't want to stay there for free. For what's offered I find it quite expensive.

Ketut’s is a great Ubud experience! It has the feel of a homestay - there are 17 rooms but all are located throughout Ketut's property. The rooms are simple but adequate, and the grounds are beautiful. They are located about a 7 minute walk from the temple and market so it is close to town, and Ketut also offers a variety of tours for reasonable prices (better than the prices offered by vendors in town). We would stay here again.

The family was lovely and the rooms are set in some beautiful gardens overlooking a deep ravine at the back of the compound.
The rooms were simply, but effectively decorated and the breakfast in the morning served on your balcony or terrace was a wonderful treat. The hotel is quite a walk from central Ubud and quite diffucult to navigate in the dark, but it is close to the information Centre and to the Ubud palace theatre which hosts performance's every night.

Thank you so much to Ketut and his family. I stayed 12 days- I was magical to stay with this unique family full of wisdom, care and love. All staff are extremly friendly and funny. I highly recommend this magical place. It is quiet, clean with a unique swimming pool. Ketut is extremly helful and always recommend nice place to see in Ubud and more.

I just stayed at Ketut's for the first time in two years and am pleased to say that not only has it not changed, things are even better. Ketut is putting refrigerators into the deluxe rooms and doing renovations that will include new bathtubs and toilets, there was no shortage of hot water, and breakfast arrived bang on time. Though I've always enjoyed Ketut, I also thought that he seemed more relaxed and friendlier than I've ever seen him before. The whole vibe of the place seemed more mellow somehow - and as relaxing as it ever was. And the presence and help of daughters Made and Ping really added to the overall enjoyment.

The only disappointing change was one that Ketut has no control over - building on the other side of the river gorge that has thinned the jungly foliage a little.

Room Tip: It depends what you like. The cheaper rooms around the front garden have a nice "village"...

For a weekend break we stayed at Ketuts place. Although it is off the main streets of Ubud, it is a tranquil place to stay. Great value for money. The place is run by the family, where both the daughters also give their hand at running it. It is clean, the swimming pool is like a balinese pool. It overlooks a ravine and so beautifully green. Each room has its own porch and you can make some great friends who are also staying there. Breakfast either near the pool or at your on porch!!!
The only downside is the mattress and pillow. I would suggest carry your own and enjoy Ubud at Ketuts place.

Room Tip: the higher rooms have a better view.

Our overall stay at Ketuts Place was fantastic. Just as how would you expect from a rich culture and serene place like Bali. Room was nice, the only thing I didn't like about it was the debris of wood falling from the ceiling which they need to clean up very often. One of the best breakfast I had. We were treated like princess. Bali massage was a thumbs up especially were we had it , fronting a natural waterfall. The owner and his family treated us very well. There were a lot of activities to do and visit in Bali. 5 days isn't enough to do all of it. Will definitely be back again soon.
