Suara Ombak is an exclusive authentic Balinese style home stay with only five cottages. The roundhouse is set in a vast garden with blue water ocean views. It is spacious and round and cozy, with private bathroom and a hot shower.
SUARA OMBAK is a place lost in time. We preserve the authentic charm that has attracted people to explore Bali's mystique since the 30s, now being replaced with concrete (URL HIDDEN) your host, Pak Rober, (Row-bear) with years of surfing, sailing, and exploring a little deeper around the archipelago, I will be here to assist you in finding the piece of Bali that you come for.
Originally coming to Bali as a surfer from California's central coast, I set SUARA OMBAK up as a surf outpost for my wife, myself, and my sons, so that we could enjoy Bali's riches the way we liked. The years passed by quickly, and now Bali is in so many ways a different place, with the things that people come here to find becoming harder to touch. Be it culture, or pedal-to-the-medal adventure; I've probably had a glimpse of it, and I've helped many a traveler find their way as well.
The food we offer our guests is special, and you'll know it the minute you have your first bite. A bit of a healthy minded eater and a fanatic for a clean kitchen and the freshest produce and sea harvest, our food is prepared with the very highest quality ingredients without over concern about paying a little more for the real goods. Dinners at Suara Ombak are home cooked Indonesian Style (with a little western twist… always garnished with super salad, for instance), and just might turn out to be one of the highlights of your trip
My staff has been with me for a number of years, and are familiar with my pseudo Bali-Western surfer particular comfort needs.
They will be here to make your leisure time a special memory of the time you spend with us at Suara Ombak.
Traditionally, being a "homestay" in Bali meant that local people provided you a space in a part of their family compound. They would treat you like a guest in their home, feeding you and showing you what you wanted to find; surf, dances, …later on, of course discos, and other desirable nuggets of their cultural bubble. By quietly slipping small donations to a family leader, you remained welcome indefinitely. The accommodations were more romantic than they were truly comfortable, but the overall experience freed you completely from your everyday life. That, in itself made your whole trip worth millions, so you left them all a fat tip and were welcome back any time.
That was before Bali became a surf and cultural Mecca. There are few homestays to be found anymore. We proudly enjoy carrying on the homestay tradition. At Suara Ombak we treat you better than family. Here, we provide a cozy, modernized edition of the bed and furnishings. Our staff pampers with the sweet stuff that helps you forget about everything else and have a wonderful holiday.

The cottages all are accompanied by their own garden area, and made private by short paths through the gardens. There is a private track to the beach that threads the green zone that is home to countless birds, between us and the sand.
