NOTE: Prices change quickly as tourism increases in Ubud. We suggest checking the list of decent accomodation on www.balispirit.com
Ubud has an abundance of accomodation in every price-range.Most accomodations consist of a room with a porch, en-suite bathroom with hot water, a mosquito net and breakfast included, and often in the rice-fields or a family compound. The best way is to arrive at one of the places listed for a few nights and then have a look around to see what else is available for your budget and taste. For those on a budget, there are “homestays” for around $10-15 per night; these offer the same as above but are generally more simple in decoration while the room itself will be independent, the structure is usually part of a Balinese family compound, rather than the open-to-the-fields setting. For single women, this is also a nice option.
A mid-range guesthouse close to the yoga and town areas is the Tegal Sari guesthouse. Singles are approximately $25 – 35 US/night. Another guesthouse, the Gayatri Bungalows, has some recently renovated rooms and and a very convenient location. Bagus, the Finnish-Balinese owner, is fluent in English and a yoga practitioner as well. A lower-budget central option is Kori Bungalows.
Some students have stayed at the guesthouses listed here, so we’ve added the links as a possibility. We haven’t visited these hotels ourselves, so we are not making a specific recommendation. We do not get involved with organizing accommodation, as everyone has different standards and tastes.
