This beautiful small guest house is a hidden gem! Is a traditional style building, away from the busy and noisy streets. The staff is wonderful and very helpful.
Rooms: clean, spacious, the wifi works really good, no tv channels available but we didn't watch tv, the rooms get clean every day.
Facilities: stunning pool overlooking the rice fields, very quiet, with orchids and coconut trees decorating the grounds. They also offer guided tours, very cheap, umbrellas if rains, fantastic breakfast, massages and taxi service.
Staff: Such a friendly and chatty staff, very nice to talk to locals, the owner Dewa is lovely. All the staff was great, they make the breakfast in the morning with a very tasty coffee. At the check out time, very nicely helped carry my bags to the main road.
Location: is a 10/15 walk to the city center, in the first day I was confused how to find this place, as you have to walk through a small street that leads into a rice field, and then the hotel itself. Thankfully the locals are very nice in offering directions.
Plenty of restaurants, spas, laundry and money exchange places near by.
Go and stay here, the staff and the location makes it a wholly wonderful experience!
Dewa House Bisma is nice little hotel with good pool and great views. Hotelarea is little garden and view from the pool to the jungle and little ricefields. Rooms are basic and clean. Pillows are quite bad. Breakfast is pancake, fruits and coffee or tea. Overall great place to stay at the great location.
As usual I found this place on the internet when I was looking for a quiet family room with swimming pool in a nice location and an affordable pricing.
Dewa House Bisma all has the above requirements!
We arrived late since Air Asia was delayed, seems to be their standard, and the trip from the airport took about 1,5 hours where a halve hour was just to leave the airport.
Took the taxi drive a little to find the place, but the entrance of hotels is just a little further of Umah Pizza on the right side where you see many hotel / hostel sings. Than you have to walk for about 4 minutes on a concrete path and you will here frogs and lizards at night and birds in the moring :-) . Nevertheless we were late the friendly owner was present to check us in help us to our family room!
The Family rooms are spacious with one large bed and two single beds, which was perfect.It gets dark around 6.30 PM and sunrise around 6.30 AM, so no dark curtains present. There is a small kitchen with a fridge, sink and locker. A large bad room with a sink, 2 showers and a toilet. All basic but functional. The sleeping room is large and besides the bed there are is one large and a small table. A nice couch would be great!
The morning welcomes you with singing birds and a breakfast of coffee/tea, fruits and banana pancakes on you r terrace overlooking the scenic views! The do sell water / soda's and beer, so no need to run to town for a quick drink when you enjoy the Pool which nice (little cold in the morning) but not large.
It was a pleasant stay for us since we appreciate a basic room with a nice view. However many places offer this these days, since Ubud has become the Kuta of the midlands and many tourist want to sleep quiet.
The property looks nice on the pictures. We stayed in one of the family rooms (1B downstairs), and was pleased with the cleanliness of the room. However, we feel the room could use some fresh paint (see pictures) and better furnitures. Because of these stains and/or chipping on the walls, the impression of the room was not that clean, even though the beds and floor were indeed spotless.
The view was very nice: our room directly faced the pool and coconut trees. Breakfast was delicious: fresh fruits and pancakes.
Tips: the pictures shown were taken a few years back when there was no other buildings obstructing your view. Today, they keep building new hotels/homestays, and soon, the beautiful view of rice fields or nature will be all gone.
When we arrived to Ubud, the taxi driver had some troubles finding the place, so we had to ask around a little to point us to the alley which leads to Dewa House. It's a narrow alley, accessible only by foot or scooters and it takes about 4-5 minute walk to the accommodation. The room was modest but relaxing. One thing we were not happy about was that everybody else staying on the first floor had to walk past our room, they could see inside, so we had to improvise and additionaly obstruct windows with curtains on the sides to ensure privacy. The nights were very quiet, we had a very good sleep there. The breakfast was good and fresh, but the same everyday (pancakes and fruit). The pool was nice, maybe a few additional sunbeds wouldn't hurt. It was a pleasant stay in overall.
