This place has the most Beautiful clothing and Jewelry. Modern cuts with incredible original fabrics.

The staff and the designer, Bagus, are wonderful, friendly and laid back.

A must see!

We come to Bali most years and I do my annual pilgrimage to AKU.
When I wear these soft, sophisticated clothes by Bagus (the owner and creative creative designer) I received many positive comments.

My friend is a local artist from Africa and she brought us to this boutique, knowing our tastes. The designer from AKU also does work with National Geographic. Wonderfully light cotton linen clothing ideal for Bali. The couture designs are clean, elegant and can be dressed up or down. The jewellery is unlike anything else I’ve seen in Ubud. My husband picked up some clothes and I picked up a pair of earrings made with volcanic rock. A great fashionable souvenirs from Bali.

The manager of this little store is just so personable! Clothing and accessories for men and women... The merchandise in this little boutique has been hand picked and it shows. All the items are well made and uniquely stylish. Hand made jewelry is particularly special and extremely well priced!! Not what you find in the touristy shops. The pricing here is the best I found and the quality better than other higher priced places for similar fabrics and style. Check it out!!!

I bought a wonderful clutch bag here, which is perfect for travel. The navy and black colors go with nearly everything but it was so reasonably priced I plan to return for another in brown. Love this shop!

I bought some relatively high priced "handmade" linen pants there (550k). The salesperson there convinced me by telling stories about the high quality and best materials. Fast forward 1 month, wearing the pants twice and washing once they start falling apart,the seams are opening up and the fabric is getting very thin on the tights.

As I visited ubud again I passed by the store and showed the pants to the owner. I didn't even expect much but what happened exceeded it by far.
The only words he told me were:"That's not my problem" nothing else, not an apology, he didn't even look at the pants.
I asked if it was possible to repair the pants or anything...nope. He just started to play with his iPad and ignored me.
The stylish shop and high prices try to convince you of high quality and good service but it's only fake. My guess is that even the pants I bought at ubud market for 20k IDR will last longer.

We found this little place whilst staying in Ubud and simply walking the streets of Penestanan Village. Dewa was very friendly and helpful and my sister and I purchased some beautiful jewellery whilst there. A must visit and although the shop was not large, it had a variety of beautiful dresses which I would have tried on had I not been too hot/exhausted. I will return as there was a lot of very interesting pieces of jewellery of high quality.

Aku is as much an experience as it is a shop. This is in large part due to the creative genius and artistry of Bagus, the shop owner and, by extension, the gorgeous nature of those who work with and for him. I have found dresses and jewellery that you would imagine on the runway at New York fashion week and Milan and Paris openings and to not only find them here but to do so at such reasonable prices for such artisan excellence is a revelation. Bagus is someone who is so attuned to textiles that it truly is like watching a painter create or a composer and his symphony. The palette, tones, texture and flow of Bagus's creation is truly wonderful to experience. Even as I type this, I have on one of his scarves and necklaces and last night someone came up to me and said 'that is the most beautiful dress I have seen in a long time, where did you get it?' And I said, "Aku, Penestann, Kelod, Bali! It's an experience you will never forget. I can't wait to return!"

This shop is unique and special in that the level of design and craftsmanship is unparalleled. Everything is thoughtfully curated and displayed, beautiful dresses, scarves and the wonderful accessories (jewelry, clutches, bags).
I brought back a gorgeous white dress perfect for an elegant night out in NYC.
This is definitely a spot you must add to your itinerary when exploring this wonderful city!

You will not be disappointed with any purchase you make at this top quality shop in Ubud. The craftsmanship is unparalleled, the colours and fabrics are exquisite and you will immediately notice the personal touch behind every garment and accessory. The artistry and beauty of his scarves are beyond description. Aku Boutique is a must for anyone who enjoys fine art.
