The staff are impeccably professional and friendly (when we arrived they had a flower arrangement waiting for us with a card wishing us a happy honeymoon), the rooms are beautiful and clean, and the atmosphere is relaxed. We stayed in three...

We returned to Alam Jiwa for our third visit and will continue to rate it as one of the best hotels we have stayed in anywhere in the world. They have got everything right, from the friendly welcome, to the beautiful rooms with privacy, private balconies or terrace and views across rice paddies to Mt Agung, tranquil water-filled gardens, great...

We stayed at Alam Jiwa for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed a little longer. The place is so serene and beautiful! The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. It is a perfect place for anyone who loves to be surrounded by beautiful nature and needs a break from hectic city life. Can't wait to go back.....

The attention to detail is superb and the villas are absolutely beautiful. Breakfast is wonderful, and can be served by your room or by the lovely pool. I stayed there twice with my parents and they could not have been more enchanted by their introduction to Bali. Superb, and great value!

Spent four days at Alam Jiwa. A nice escape from the somewhat hectic environs of Ubud. Good base for touring Bali. The location is in a word, serene. Flowing water everywhere. Interesting to shower au naturale with farmers working the rice fields walking by. Stayed three nights in the Merpati room and then had to move to Jataya because of...

This is a great place to stay. We stayed from the 15-17th April. There isn't anything else that I would require on a holiday. Alam Jiwa is nestled amongst nature yet not far away from town. You hear water flowing anywhere you walk. The varying sounds of the animals add to its rustic charm. The rice paddy fields are a...

We stayed here for 3 nights, and sure wished it was longer! It has many plants and trees around that give a really nice natural feel, beautiful rice patty views, and a very nice pool and rooms. The staff are extremely accomdatling, and the hotel offers free driving service. But many of the Ubud acctrations are not too far away....
