“A Beautiful & Peaceful Stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2012

We just got home after staying 3 nights at Alam Jiwa in the Kasuary Room. We had 2 adults and 2 children and at the time i booked this it was the only room left, so they added 2 extra beds. A little squishy inside but the huge verandah and bathroom made up for it.

The rooms are comfortable. The breakfast delicious. The afternoon tea.....well put it this way there was no way we were ever going to miss out on those delicious home made cakes! Yum!
The day bed with the rice paddy views and the sound of running water is sooo relaxing.

This really is a peaceful setting suitable for families or couples. The friendly staff are always accomadating and happy. The free shuttle service in to town is essential and we used it a few times a day and it was never a problem at all. We did the monkey forest walk into town once and thats it as those monkeys are evil little buggers lol!

If you want a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle and a place close to nature and all it's wildlife then this is the place to stay. We certainly will return next year. Thanks guys for the friendly faces and memorable holiday. Coopa said "HI" and yes he is still playing the flute and has now brought a harmonica !!!

Room Tip: They all look good to me but i suppose a room on 2nd or 3rd floor the best.

This place is excellent - beautiful, peaceful, and the food and hospitality are first-rate. It is close to everything yet still feels secluded and private. The owner is lovely and plays a mean harmonica!

Such a beautiful feeling to this place. A long driveway may have you a little uneasy when you arrive but this place is so peaceful and beautiful. A great base for an extended stay in Ubud. They were extremely helpful in arranging outings and transportation for us. They are affiliated with excellent restaurants. Just a short walk to through the much less chaotic side of the monkey forest.

We were booked in Alam Shanti but a mistake in bookings led them to upgrade us to Jiwa. We were told all rooms here were recently renovated. Our room was huge, on 3 levels facing paid fields, with two king sized beds and 2 bathrooms. The upper bath is beautiful with an open shower with a view of the fields. The basement had a kitchen with a fridge and plenty of filtered water.

All Alam hotels are located a good 20 minutes walk (through the Monkey Forest) from the main town of Ubud, so they provide free transfers into town, as many as you need (you can call for a pick up) which is a great service. The pool area is nice although not as lush as at Alam Indah. Breakfast and afternoon tea are included and very good (make sure to ask for the bread basket, from the Wayan bakery).

Jiwa is probably the most upmarket of the 3 Alam hotels, the difference is size of rooms, view, and at Jiwa rooms have phones and hair dryers which Indah rooms do not have. Otherwise style and type of service seem similar.
