Murni's Houses, Ubud, Bali - Sawo Apt 1
Murni's Houses are built in a traditional Balinese walled compound. Step through the gate and you enter a world of tranquility, filled with Balinese art, that's just a few minutes' walk from the main street of Ubud.
Sawo Apartment 1 is on the ground floor of a new two-storey building — 1 bedroom with a double bed, en suite bathroom and verandah; 1 bedroom with a bed which has 2 mattresses which can be pushed apart on request, en suite bathroom and verandah; and a living room. Small kitchen. Small bathroom. Private entrance and back door to the garden. Option of air conditioning in the bedrooms. Sleeps up to 4 people..
Up to 4 Murni's Big Breakfasts per day included.
US$150 per night, plus 10% government tax and 5% service charge.
For those times you don't want to go to town, you can have your meals on the large veranda, or in the Apartment.
Wander round the garden and enjoy Murni's collection of stonecarvings by Wayan Cemul, one of Bali's most famous sculptors and living treasures. Born in 1927, he is Murni's father's cousin. Cemul produces non-conventional statues that are quintessentially Balinese in character and full of comic playfulness.
Murni's Houses have 220/50HZ electricity, hot running water, flow-through ventilation and are fully mosquito-screened. Included are fans, blankets and a mini-bar. There is day and evening room service from our internationally famous restaurant, Murni’s Warung, just three minutes away.
Murni's Big Breakfast is two eggs served to order, ham or bacon, toast with jam, yoghurt with fruit and honey, and coffee or tea. Vegetarian option available.
Free coffee and tea facilities and drinking water in each accommodation. Free WiFi throughout for your laptop or smart phone. A baby crib is available. Free round-trip airport transfers for guests staying a month or more.
We can arrange tours, courses or activities (such as cooking classes, a session with the medicine man from Eat, Pray, Love, white water rafting, elephant safari park trip with a ride on an elephant, bicycle drive through the villages, bird walks, tarot reading, batik course, snorkeling or scuba diving or a boat trip to a deserted island) for you. and offer very comfortable transportation at a reasonable cost to anywhere on the island. Just give us a bit of notice.
Note that there is no pool — yet. If you want a lovely pool, have a look at Murni's Villas. You can also use the pools at nearby hotels for a small fee.
We have our own spa Tamarind Spa at Murni's Houses. Trip Advisor’s Attractions in Ubud, based on guests’ experiences and reviews, lists Tamarind Spa at Murni’s Houses as one of the top attractions.
We have written 2 books on Bali and Ubud.
Secrets of Bali, Fresh Light on the Morning of the World by Jonathan Copeland with Ni Wayan Murni was published in 2010 and is in its second print run. It is also available as an ebook.
Roy Thompson, Bali Times, wrote that "Secrets of Bali is the best book about the island written and published since 1990 … "
Michael Clugston, South China Morning Post, wrote "This book will definitely go with me on my next trip to Bali."
Murni's Very Personal Guide to Ubud by Ni Wayan Murni and photographs by Jonathan Copeland was published in October 2011 and is available as an ebook.
Stephanie Brookes, Travel Writer wrote “This is all you need to experience the best of Ubud written by Murni, a legendary local insider and cultural expert.”
Just ask if you would like either book.
