Go local at this homestay for thrift-seekers who want to see what it’s like living with a Balinese family and observing their daily routines. The fan-cooled rooms with balconies are decorated in a tropical and typically Balinese style. Within walking distance of the Monkey Forest and the central market of Ubud, visitors can still awaken to the sound of birdsong and feel like they’re far away from the tourist hordes. Owned and run by the family members of a local holy man, visitors can also take advantage of different therapies and even yoga right in their rooms. Many travelers have commented positively on the family’s friendliness.
