Description

Sustainable cabin for ideal for couple/single. Set in active Balinese farmland, experience traditional Balinese community, lifestyle and food far from the tourist scene. Visit temples or trek in jungle and rice paddies.

Set in Banjar Anyar, a small village on the slopes of mount Batukaru, experience traditional Balinese village life on the edge of the rainforest. Set in active farmland, and staffed entirely from the village, this is an opportunity to experience traditional balinese culture, temples and extraordinary nature while giving back to your host community.

The local area offers a wide variety of activities from visiting the neighbouring Pura Muncak Sari or Pura Batukaru (both part of the UNESCO protected Catur Angga Batukaru), trekking in the jungle or a more sedate walk through the small villages, expansive rice paddies and protected rainforest. A wide variety of hot springs are available in the area ranging from a large commercial operation with swimming pool through to a couple of pools by a remote temple.

For those already trekked out, we also offer lessons in Bahasa Indonesia/Basa Bali by the local school's English teacher, a carving workshop with a local carver, a local priest with car also offers a half day introduction to Balinese Hinduism (visiting home, village and regional temples, explaining their function and place in Balinese life), and the staff can teach offering making and give cooking lessons. A variety of massage is also available on request.

At the hut, the surrounding grounds have a large amount of coffee planted and a wide variety of other fruits, vegetables and local crops. The land is still actively farmed providing organic meals and snacks for the cabin and continued income from the land for the local farmer. It's also a great opportunity to learn about the local crops from coffee, bananas and rice through to local delicacies such as bongkot and ferntip. We also raise rabbits, ducks and a number of types of edible fish.

Food is usually prepared by staff from the village who cook at the huts using ingredients from the surrounding organic gardens. The guys are there from 8am through to 7pm either cooking, gardening or offering locally grown coffee and snacks for Rp150.000 per person per day all inclusive. Three meals a day are made up of local dishes and usually include a chicken dish, a tempeh or tofu dish, a couple of vegetable dishes and sambals all prepared using what is currently in the garden. It's a great way to try some new food with dishes featuring ingredients like banana flower, heart of palm, banana stem, coffee leaves and wide number of local ingredients.

Electricity and hot showers included.

Can be booked in combination with Open Air Bamboo House in Rural Bali with food served together or separately as required.

Guests have access to the entire surrounding area of land, bale by the pond and are welcome to watch the guys cooking in the old 'farmhouse'. For those interested, someone can be organised to explain what all the plants are and their use either as food, medicine or in ceremonies. The surrounding area also offers some nice walks and views with the local temple and start of the rainforest 300m to the north of the huts.

People in the village are very welcoming and although little English is spoken, guests are strongly encouraged to take a trip into the village to visit either the temples, take a walk around the area or have a coffee at one of the warungs.


The area is still untouched by large-scale tourism and is still very traditional with little English spoken and life still very much driven by tradition and community. Ceremonies are frequent and guests are welcome to join any of the many local ceremonies ranging from funerals and weddings through to temple odalans, home odalans, three month baby ceremonies, tooth filings etc. English speaking guides are available, if wanted, to explain what it going on and a contribution is given to the banjar for all guests which covers donations to ceremonies or temples.

To the north of the village is protected rainforest which runs up to the summit of Mount Batukaru. Treks to the summit are available to those with a good level of fitness and a shorter trip to Jatiluwih temple in the middle of the forest offers the chance to experience the rainforest first hand.

The area is remote, hard to find and the roads in the area are frequently broken. It is highly recommended to use one of the drivers available from the village who are experienced driving on what can be dangerous roads. Pick-ups, drop offs and shorter trips are all available – please enquire for price.

Home stay au milieu de la jungle, amis de la nature c'est le spot parfait pour vous ! La route pour y arriver est bien difficile mais c'est possible ! La nourriture est exceptionnelle, tout vient du jardin. Simon est un super hôte, il nous fait découvrir la vie du village et les rituels religieux.

Un endroit immergé dans la nature. Magnifique! Pas facilement accessible, mais cela en vaut le détour pour qui aime nature, calme et simplicité. Simon et son équipe sont adorables et la nourriture est succulente. I had great time. See you Simon and thank you for your welcoming!

Ce lieu magique est une étape inoubliable de notre voyage à Bali. Un petit havre de paix situé en pleine jungle. Un bon moyen de recharger les batteries loin de la civilisation. Depuis ce lieu il est possible de faire des randonnées magnifique. Accueil et conseils de Simon superbes!

Simon et son équipe nous ont fait le meilleur accueil possible. Sa guest house est idéale pour découvrir la campagne balinaise authentique. La nourriture concoctée par son cuisinier est extraordinaire. Nous n'avons pas mangé de plats aussi délicieux en trois semaines à Bali. Les ingrédients sont cueillis dans le jardin ou dans la nature ! La petite balade de 4 heures dans les rizières est super et facile pour les non-sportifs. Passer 2 ou 3 jours chez Simon est particulièrement dépaysant et loin des amas de touristes que l'on rencontre forcément à Bali. C'est un peu loin des circuits habituels, c'est très bien tenu sans être un palace mais vous vivrez une expérience inoubliable.

Lieu très sympathique et atypique, perdu au milieu de la jungle entre deux villages balinais. Simon vous réserve un accueil de qualité, et lui et son équipe vous proposeront des spécialités du coin cuisinées avec des ingrédients issus du jardin. Un vrai coin de paradis et une halte nécessaire pour ceux qui veulent fuir un instant les villes touristiques surpeuplées. Plusieurs balades dans le coin sont possibles, dont l'ascension du Batukaru. Quelques conseils : demander à Simon le transfert jusqu'à chez lui, car c'est vraiment perdu, et les chauffeurs du village sauront mieux que quiconque vous amener à bon port. Et ne pas oublier son pull, les nuits sont fraîches à cette altitude !

I found this place from a recommendation from a friend. I am so glad I did! My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and loved it. The property is stunning. We felt so unplugged, refreshed and relaxed wandering around the property or just relaxing and admiring the greenery from our patio. Simon is an amazing host and through conversations gave us such great insight into the daily lives/culture of the local Balinese that we would have never known otherwise! The food is delicious- I miss it already and such a great value for all the food that you get! The staff who prepare it are very gracious and one of the staff took us on a walk to a nearby temple and village and explained local religion, culture, etc. I definitely recommend staying here!

We had a great time at the farmstay and ended up staying longer than expected. The cabin was rustic and as described, and the food was wonderful. Beautiful location in the mountains and very friendly staff.

I was raised in England and lived in London for over a decade working as a software architect. As I approached 30 I started to wonder what else there was out there. Before I knew it I was living in a bamboo house in a remote village on the border of the Balinese rainforest with two dogs, a cat and a monkey. I have not looked back. Love music of all varieties, nature, peace, learning about Balinese culture, teaching English and IT in the village, beef rendang, nangka goreng and organic gardening.
