I have traveled all my life and have NEVER been to a place such as Alam Jiwa. There is no way, I can compliment this place and the wonderful staff enough.. Everything is wonderful.. from the people,. the view, the housing, the gardens, the pool, the food.. did I say staff because they are incredible.. The view of the gardens and the rice patties are incredible.. If you want peace, tranquility, serenity.. THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!
I will go back to Bali and Ubud, JUST to come back to Alam Jiwa. Walking distance from food, shopping and the Sacred Monkey Forest. I miss the place and staff already..There is no comparison in all of Ubud or bali for that matter.. Be prepared for the simple beauty of peace and be overwhelmed by the view and gardens..

Room Tip: all rooms and villas are incredible

What a beautiful hotel! Superb rice field views from rooms, well kept grounds and spotless rooms. My favorite place to stay in nyu kuning. Offer free car service to and from ubud. Breakfasts are incredible! Homemade breads and yogurts. Staff is exceptional. 5 star place for sure. I keep coming back. Book early, they fill up quick.

If I have chance to travel to Bali, Alam Jiwa is the only place I will stay for my whole holiday ! The staff helped us so much for our recent trip and they made sure our plan going smoothly. They have very comfortable shuttle van that take you anywhere in Ubud. You are immersed into the nature world while staying in Alam Jiwa, with the bird chirping, paddy field viewing at your bedroom, small stream flowing,etc...what a view...

Alam Jiwa is located in the village of Nyuh Kuning in Ubud, a 10-15 min walk from the Monkey Forest. An hour plus drive is needed to get to the hotel from Ngurah Rai International Airport and Alam Jiwa provides pick-up service for Rp. 350 000.

Our family stayed in the Hanoman Room (with a rice field view) and the Gelatik Room (garden view). We enjoyed our stay very much amidst a serene environment with lush greenery, lotus ponds and traditional Balinese architecture. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated with Balinese elements.

One of the highlights of our entire Bali trip was being able to enjoy the beautiful view of rice fields while savouring our scrumptious breakfast on the balcony. They have a decent number of options for breakfast mains and they're served with drinks, bread and fresh fruits (to be ordered a day in advance). On a clear day, we were lucky enough to see Mt. Agung from our room too! One can also enjoy complimentary afternoon tea in your room -- tea/coffee with the snack-of-the-day freshly made from Cafe Wayan, one of their sister establishments.

Other plus points of Alam Jiwa -- the shuttle service provided is very convenient; you only need to wait a few minutes before they arrange a driver to drop you off at Ubud center (or any place nearby actually), and generally a maximum wait of 15 min is required for a ride back to the hotel (just ask the staff of any store to contact the hotel for you, wait outside the store, and the driver will be there in a jiffy!).
I also appreciated some of the ecological practices Alam Jiwa adopted e.g. paper straws were used and mineral water bottles are also re-used (guests are encouraged to refill their bottles at the reception during their stay; a small electric kettle can also be provided upon request). The staff were courteous and helpful in answering our queries as well; the quality of service really makes or breaks your holiday eh?

Lastly, some feedback for the hotel -- it would be great if the fruit bowls in our rooms were actually filled with fresh fruits. We were quite surprised to discover mouldy and old-looking fruits in a hotel that served good food.
Also, a hair-dryer with greater wind speed would be the icing on the cake for guests who need to use hair-dryers regularly haha. I also hope that their credit card machines are regularly maintained to avoid inconveniencing guests in the future (which was what we experienced as we had to make payment at their sister companies instead). But overall, we had a great stay nonetheless and would love to return to Alam Jiwa!

Room Tip: Do stay in the rooms on the upper floors for an beautiful view of the rice fields!

My husband and I stayed here 13 years ago and knew if we ever returned to Bali we'd want to return to this amazing place. The hotel consists of several bungalows, all with their own balconies overlooking rice paddys and beautifully landscaped grounds . Perfect location in a small village a 10 minute walk through the monkey forest to Ubud. Shuttle service to Ubud offered. Beautiful outdoor pool area. Fabulous breakfast included. Many restaurants and shops in the village.

Room Tip: We stayed in 3 different ground floor rooms. All were great. Very quiet except for the sounds of nat...
