Mulawarman Ubud Bali

Reviewed 5 December 2012

My Husband and I stayed here for one night with our 2 children. We could have easily stayed a month here. The rooms are very clean and well equipped with hot water pot for tea and coffee, bottled water, free internet, flat screen tv with satellite,
and hot water in the bathrooms, and a must have -mosquito net for all the beds.
This is one thing that is a must for me in choosing a hotel a mosquito net, which they all have. The bathrooms were also very clean. The rooms are up-to-date well decorated with many of Ibu Wayan's treasures. We stayed in the upstairs rooms and were so delighted with the view and peacefulness of the property. The upstairs rooms also have a common space, a quite beautifully furnished living area to get a little work done on the computer or just read a book and relax. The Kitchen area is open and guest enjoy their breakfast sitting on beautiful carved benches over looking the ravine and rice fields. It truly feels like you are in the jungle but, your only 5 minutes from the main road.

In the morning I was greeted with an amazing colorful sky over the rice fields, truly a perfect Good Morning. I then snuck downstairs before the children woke up and was greeted again with an Amazing Women Ibu Wayan, who welcomed me with a smile and much needed coffee. Next Ibu showed me how to make green pancakes from the pandan leaves in her garden for my breakfast. What a treat green banana pancakes, Ibu truly puts her heart into everything she does.

It's only about a 5 minute walk from the main road but, you wouldn't know it when you're relaxing on your verandah . Mulawarman is so peaceful and quite. One of my favorite parts about the location of Mulawarman is the way its nestled along the river. To get to Mulawarman you must walk down this small pathway with water running along side you , so mystical. Its about a 10minute walk to the famous Sari Organic restaurant in the rice fields and other organic restaurants like the new Pomegranate.

The Staff was so wonderful with our children, truly caring. We even had our little Chihuahua with us that they adored. I will stay at Mulawarman again and I will recommend Mulawarman to anyone going to Bali or people living in Bali who want to get away.

I made my decision to stay here based on the review in TA and also after emailing their manager Mr. Dwija who was kind and accomodating which is indeed rare nowadays. The moment I stepped in and was shown my room and other available rooms, I knew I made the right decision. My initial 2 day stay is now a 5 day stay. Ibu Wayan, the owner is a wonderful person in keeping the place really clean and going the extra mile for her guests. She cooks breakfast, prepares coffee and also dinner as I don't go out at night. Nothing is too difficult for Ibu Wayan. I would strongly recommend Mulawarman and do contact them to get the best rate for longer stay. It is also a very good way to help our local Balinese friends to prosper. All the best to Ibu Wayan, Mr. Dwija and their wonderful team.

We accidentally stumbled upon this place after looking for a place to stay on the rice paddies near Sari Organik. We wanted some place quiet and homelike to come back to after a day of yoga and exploring Bali and we found that here. We stayed a month.

The service was great and very personal. This place was only a few months old when we stayed and there was a lot of magic and new energy when we stayed.

The value was great because we stayed long and negotiated a good rate but this is a headache. As westerners it becomes tiresome always negotiating the price of everything in Bali.

The sleep quality was great because there are large ceiling fans and air con in all the rooms. Great new beds. The neighbor has a rooster that lets you know it is 5:30 am but it drowns out in the white noise of the fan.

Clean rooms. New sheets and towels every day even though it doesn't need to be done. They do a great job cleaning the rooms but they are human. The only problem with cleanliness is in the kitchen and they do a far better job than most kitchens I have seen in Bali. Nine out of the ten Warungs/Restaurants I've seen in Bali wouldn't pass code in the USA.

The kitchen is magical. It becomes a public space for cooking, drinking, talking and eating together. It feels like a mix between being in someone's home and in a hostel becomes of all of the different accents and languages being spoken. The owner, Wayan Londri, is a sweet lady and loves her guests. She likes to cook for you if you stay longer than a few days. Free coffee and tea throughout the day. I suggest you negotiate a few great Indonesian meals in with your room.

Wayan's English isn't perfect so just be patient.

The location is far from the traffic and people of the main ring of Ubud yet convenient to get you anywhere. You can walk up to Sari Organik or down to the palace. A five or ten minute scooter ride will get you to all the museums, The Yoga Barn, Penestanan Road which is a hip road for most expats. and Ubud's largest store Bintang. Quiet location nestled between the rice fields, above a creek gorge and surrounded by trees.

The rooms come in different sizes. They are simple and decorated by Bali Art that mostly comes from Wayan's shop of carvings and statues. The larger rooms have bathtubs. Smaller rooms have showers. Smaller rooms have a door that open from the side for small families. Kids in one room and parents in the other. Larger rooms have big balconies on the second floor. Large rooms on the first floor have a nice porch. The ambiance at night is amazing. Geckos, crickets, bats, fireflies, and frogs.

A swimming pool is a future project. Hopefully it will be there when we go back.

Part of the charm of Mulawarman is that you really feel that you are going somewhere unique and far from home, and yet you have the safety and comfort that you would expect from a five-start hotel but at a reasonable price. The hotel is located in walking distance to all of the major markets, tourist sights and the very best vegan organic restaurant in Bali- Sari Organic. Yet, the entrance is tucked away from the pollution and traffic of downtown and wrapped comfortably in the rice paddies along a small path. As an architect, I was very impressed with Wayan's ability to design clean and yet culturally significant rooms that take advantage of the natural views. There was no clutter or advertisements to buy - just large, elegantly adorned rooms surrounding an open air courtyard and a jungle ravine.

My room was #2 on the bottom floor. I had glass french doors opening up to a patio looking onto the courtyard. My room was spacious with a western-style queen bed, A/C, flat screen tv, and all antique furniture. The seperate bath had an oversized garden tub.

I enjoyed the breakfast made fresh and served on the outdoor patio - typically eggs, five fruits, and freshly baked bread. Occiationally they also served local dishes for breakfast.

Wayan (the owner) was extremely considerate with check-out times, directions, and always ensured that our rooms were cleaned (and even locked) when we were out for the day. She provided a laundry service and airport pick-up (she greeted me at the airport with bottled water and homemade Balinese cookies!!).

I honestly don't believe my vacation would have been so amazing if I had stayed anywhere else. This is the type of business that you want to support when you visit another country - locally owned, operated, woman-owned, and has sustainable and healthy practices. I'm thrilled that I was able support her dream and simultaneously have an amazing 5 days in paradise!

Room Tip: If you want to go all-out, the upstairs rooms are increadible. If you are on a budget or are plannin...

El servicio es muy bueno, la dueña vino a presentarse y a saludarnos y es muy amigable. Cada día te preguntan a que hora quieres desayunar y que te apetece. Así mismo te dan un zumo natural de bienvenida y te ofrecen te o café a cualquier hora. Las habitaciones son muy bonitas, estan muy bien decoradas, la cama es muy cómoda y el baño también está muy bien, una de las habitaciones tiene el baño con vistas al exterior. La hubicación no está mal en 5 minutos estás en la monkeys road y tienes cerca de todo.

The service is very good, the owner came to greet us and is present and very friendly. Every day they ask you what time you want breakfast and you fancy. Also you get a fresh juice welcome and offer you tea or coffee any time. The rooms are very nice, very well decorated, the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom was nice as well, one of the rooms has a bathroom with a view. The hubicacion not bad in five minutes you're on the road and have monkeys near everything.

The rooms at Mulawarman are beautifully designed by the owner who has put her heart into every inch of the property. The view is magical! It's located next to a ravine that's coated with coconut, banana and jackfruit trees. The opposite side is lush green rice fields. It's located ten minutes (walking) from Sari Organik. It's off the main road so it is extremely quiet. The only sounds we heard were those of geckos, frogs and birds. We stayed in room number 3, which had the bathtub that looked out into the jungle. Breathtaking! We had an amazing experience staying at Wayans and getting to witness the beautiful Balinese traditions. This was our first time visiting Bali and when we return we will stay here again. Thank you so much for treating us like we are apart of the family!

Room Tip: If you want the most sunlight stay in rooms 1,2,3,5,6,7,8.

I accidentally "found" this new 4 room hideaway mid July when looking for Sari organic restaurant in Ubud. My stay at Mulawarman was delightful - the welcome , service, food, conversation and attention - Balinese hospitality in superb accommodation. The location is inspiring - on the hill overlooking rice paddies with great organic "eating "' nearby and in house, and down hill is conveniently, Ubuds now bustling,tourist village. I liked everything here - the breakfast was exceptional - the people magic!!
