“Authentic, Real Bali”

This was our first trip to Bali and we found exactly what we were looking for-the 'real' Bali. Just as promised. The tours around the region were certainly highlights, but our favorite day was spent with Wayan and his family and being apart of their family at the dinner table.

We could not have asked for a better experience. We found Swallow House to have warm hospitality, genuine friendship, and the most delicious food!

“The Best Bali Experience”
Reviewed 28 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

person found this review helpful

If you are looking for the ‘True Bali’ this is the place to go. Spending a month in Bali I spent my first week and last week in the Swallow House.
The solicitude is like nothing I have experience, and only 15 minutes from Ubud and was the perfect balance. I loved sitting out and just watching the world go by. Wayan would help us translate so that we could talk to the rice farmers. It is amazing when you stay some place for so long how you get to watch the small changes in the Rice Field and realize how quickly life changes even though it may appear to be standing still.
The Beautiful House and Beautiful Location and only part of the story.
Suzan – a fantastic individual who set up all aspects of our stay prior to arrival, making sure that our stay would be a memorable one. We e-mailed each other for two month prior to arrival setting up all aspects of both of our stays.
Putri – Just the most amazing cook. I admit; I am never understood about Organic food until Putri cooked for us. Every morning at 5am she would go to market to buy the food. Our meals were always the freshest possible depending on what the farmers had that day at market.
Wayan – You could never truly explain Wayan. He has so many stories about Bali and gave us so much helpful information. If you asked me to explain the people of Bali, I would tell you to talk to Wayan.
Just an amazing place to let yourself be immersed in Bali

Luc, it was a real pleasure having you at the Swallowhouse. I'm please I was there to share the rice planting with you - your lines were much straighter than mine!! I still have some of the local fellows asking about you - they were pleased you joined in their activities. We wish you success in your endeavors. Bon Soir!
