Stay at Rumah Jepun, Ubud for your holiday…

Enter a magical Balinese garden, full of tropical fruit and colourful flowers.

Sip a welcome drink (perhaps papaya juice – fresh from our tree) while chilling on your private balcony or lounging  on sunbeds.

Feel your shoulders relax as you breathe in the abundance of the nature surrounding you.

Can you hear the voice of the river just beyond the banana trees… the flap of butterfly wings?

Rumah Jepun offers serene beauty… a portal to Balinese culture…  and travel experiences that can broaden your perceptions — all from the comfort of your uniquely designed room, surrounded by a jungle garden and local art.

Rumah Jepun’s three rooms (two standard and one deluxe) include all the usual trimmings… breakfast, aircon, free wifi and daily housekeeping.

Breakfast on your balcony

Breakfast on your balcony – the pancakes are legendary!

Our staff, Putu and Made, also offer free tea, coffee and drinking water, with a smile!

We can give ideas on where to go, help you to get there and advise what to expect.  The folder in your room includes a map and many suggestions too – as well as a poem just for you.

Take a walk through the rice paddies, or get pampered at a spa with a chocolate or coconut massage.

Do you like yoga and meditation?  Maybe you like shopping or art museums.  How about adventures – from bicycling, white water rafting or climbing the volcano for sunrise.

Perhaps you just want a refreshing dip in our neighbouring pool.

Neighbouring pool – no guarantee, but often available for a small fee or if you use their spa

How about culture – marvel at Balinese traditional music and dance performances.  Visit beautiful 11th century temples in stunning valley settings and much, much more.

When it comes to food, Ubud has it covered… from fine dining, vegetarian, vegan to raw food!  Along with the delicious Balinese and Indonesia cuisine there’s also Mexican, Japanese, Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, French, Korean – and fusions! 

Don’t forget the coffees, cocktails, the ‘gin lab’ and, of course, the desserts!



There’s SO much more to explore in the day and in the night as well – maybe dancing to local bands, enjoying traditional Balinese music and dance performances or go to one of the ‘Open Mic’ nights.

Or there’s a cool cinema, where you sit on sofas and can order food and drink while watching the movie.  Or maybe you want to try something arty… making silver jewellery, wood carving or fruit carving:

After your exciting day you’ll appreciate a good night’s sleep in Rumah Jepun’s comfortable beds, complete with designer bedding.

Wake refreshed, ready for our freshly cooked breakfast.  The banana pancakes are legendary or try an omelette – plain or spicy, it’s your choice!  Wash it down with a fresh juice.

You’re here to enjoy a vacation full of beauty, scenery, culture,  food, art, experiences and entertainment on the enchanting tropical island of Bali…

We’re here to help make your ‘dream holiday’ a memorable reality.

    Glad to see everything is going great for you. We met when you approached me and my friends in a coffee shop on your way to a poetry reading and did a practice reading and then you invited us to your home for afternoon tea. We then came to a book launching of your book “Life’s Journey” Great night. Lesley Cindy and Sue Cairns Australia

    • Hi Lesley, Cindy and Sue
      Thanks so much for getting in touch.
      I hope you are well and that you are all coming back to Ubud again this year?
      Do let me know if you do… maybe you will stay here at Rumah Jepun or, if not, at least come over for a coffee and chat.
      The garden has grown considerably since you were here last year – so lush with many papaya on the trees!
      Yes, things are going really well for me. I’m even writing short stories now and hoping to get them published too.
      Take care

    Hello Julie,
    How are you ?
    We have given your contact to friends who are coming to visit Ubud on July.
    Hope you are doing well
    Sarah & Mounir (French people visited you last October :-))

    • Hey Sarah & Mounir
      Nice to hear from you and thanks for telling your friends about us. I look forward to hearing from them and, hopefully, meeting them too.

      Yes, everything is great thanks… Bali is still beautiful and my life’s adventure here continues to astound me 🙂

      My partner, Yaniq, who you probably met, is still playing music and making some incredible art too.

      Hope all is well for you both and that, maybe?, you will come back to Bali some day.

      I realise that this is incredibly late…but I’ve only just seen your message and I have no proof that I replied to you – so maybe I didn’t!?!?!
      If I didn’t reply, then please accept my belated apologies.
