Poolside Bungalow
1b self-contained poolside bungalow, timber kitchen & comfortable daybed & swing chair. Experience living in the heart of a local village while only a 20min walk or 5min bike to Ubud. Ideal place to relax and explore the fascinating culture of Bali.

The space
The self contained bungalow is built from recycled timber, it was once and old bridge in Kalimantan. There is a bedroom upstairs with a queen size bed, downstairs a bathroom and open style kitchen and living area right next to the pool. Perfect place to relax with a book between swims.

The bedroom is fitted with air conditioning and also a has mosquito net. The daybed downstairs can be used as a bed, it is a large single and also has a mosquito net. The downstairs space is open to the garden and pool. Bamboo blinds can be closed for privacy.
The pool is shared with another studio space on the property.

The pool is NOT fenced so the bungalow is not suitable for young children unable to swim.

As we are located in the heart of the village so it is not a silent location. The local preschool is noisy between 8-10am. If these hours are precious to your ears this place is not for you! However, it is the perfect time to breakfast in one of the local cafes, go for a walk in the rice paddies, attend a yoga class or more. Sounds of the hustle and bustle of village life can be heard throughout the day.

Ibu Ketut cleans and looks after the house most days. Pak Nyoman maintains the property and is available for advice, help, local knowledge and the best rice paddy guide around. If you ask they may welcome you to visit their temple and share what Balinese life is like.

Nyuh Kuning Village
It has a great selection of local and international restaurants/cafes including Italian, Japanese, vegetarian & western style cafes as well as numerous Balinese warongs serving tasty local cuisine. Two minutes walk away is a great coffee shop run by a Balinese coffee farmer serving international quality coffee. It offers a hub for Nyuh Kuning socialising. There is also a venue with regular local & international live music and a weekly open mic night attracting an eclectic & often ecstatic crowd!

During the season there are football games on the field in the centre of the village and gentle gamelan music can often be heard from the temple.

Nyuh Kuning has a yoga studio run by Pak Ketut offering his own style of yoga based on Kundalini, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga. The classes are conducted in a mixture of Indonesia & English. While many of the practitioners are local, visitors to the island are welcome. Ketut is an internationally recognised yoga & meditation instructor & his giggle is infectious! "Ubud Yoga Centre' & 'Movement Matters Pilates' are also located in the village and the famous Yoga Barn is a 20 minute walk away.

The Sacred Monkey Forest is located at the end of the street. It is a magical place to meet the monkeys and also to wonder in the cool climate maintained by the magnificent trees. Ubud centre is found on the other side of the forest.
