I loved it's central location. I loved Putu's genuine hospitality and thoughtfulness. The room was clean and well maintained. I loved the beautiful balcony where... More

We stayed at the Jawi House for four days while visiting Ubud. They have two rooms, but the smaller one wasn't available for the dates that we needed so we took the larger one at a discount after agreeing to use only the ceiling fan. The room is excellent! It was immaculate, spacious, and well-appointed -- mini-fridge, safe box, AC,... More

I'm very glad that I have stayed at Jawi House and echo all the positive comments that have been expressed by other travellers. Both Putu and Jawi are very hospitable and generous and are always around to help answer my questions or to give me a ride.

Ours was just a short trip (2-days), but I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great home-stay with warm and prompt hospitality. It'r very centrally located on Monkey Forest Road, too. With all... More

I created a TripAdvisor account just to review how great out stay was. Looking for a beautiful quiet spot in the middle of busy central Ubud? You can't get any better than Putu's home. Her home is located down a beautiful little alleyway smack dab in between the Monkey forrest and the Market. (easy 10 minute walk to both) The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jawi House & Painter is our much-loved modern bed and breakfast homestay in the center of Ubud. We have three private, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and newly built rooms on the upper levels of our home. I live here with my husband, Ketut, a traditional Balinese artist / painter and our two teenage kids. We take pride in offering the best quality in hospitality to suit your needs and we hope to make your stay in Bali an unforgettable experience. Our home is tucked away down a laneway behind the street front. Access is via our courtyard with a staircase up to level one or two. Each room has it's own private, lockable door and you can come go as you please. ... more   less
