About the Property

Bed And Breakfast, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Located minutes away from Ubud centre, the 12 T Houses are a unique community in a beautiful setting with guests from all over the world. Enjoy the privacy of your own space or mix with interesting people, make new Balinese and international friends.

Set up as an indoor/outdoor experience, you live close to nature and will have daily visits from ducks, frogs and geckos. Please appreciate the natural setting of the house.

Chai is an enchanting Balinese-style eco house overlooking the rice fields with use of a beautiful shared pool. It has one bedroom upstairs with great views and one bedroom downstairs in a separate pavilion. It has two Balinese style open air bathrooms, a large kitchen, spacious seating areas and can accommodate up to 4 adults and 2 children (sofa beds). A baby cot is also available upon request.

During your stay, you will experience a serenity that cannot be found in central Ubud.

There is a swimming pool for you to use, which is directly beside the rice fields. This is shared with the other T houses and there is always a quiet time for a relaxing swim. There is also a children's pool for guest use.

Daily maid service and basic breakfast (served at the house) is included in your stay. As maids have to juggle a few houses, they might not be that punctual. Free wifi connection is available throughout the house/compound.

The house offers you an experience to stay in an environmentally friendly and ecologically sustainable compound, which is a part of Balinese village life. The house is for people who love to meet other people, kids usually make new friends when they stay here.

Chai House is located just outside of the picturesque town of Ubud, famous for its food, views and cultural attractions, including striking waterfalls and temples; more information can be provided by the T House management.

The setting offers true tranquility as it is set away from the town, and has three restaurants within 5-10 minutes’ drive, meaning that, if you wish, you don't even need to enter Ubud for a sumptuous meal. Local restaurants can also deliver to T House, and the staff are available to make you an evening meal upon request (order one day in advance).

We have a fantastic local driver who will bring you from/to the airport (or other location) at very reasonable rates (free airport pick up for a 3-day minimum stay). He is highly recommended, with good English speaking and an exceptional knowledge of Bali; he can ferry you around, tailoring to your preferences and desires, creating a unique experience of the island for you. Guest feedback: "Honestly, don't waste your time thinking you want to take yourself everywhere and find it on your own: you'll never find it. He will save you loads of time and stress and is a genuine great guy."

Interaction with Guests:
Resort staff are great at solving practical problems, they live locally (they are the T House's neighbours) so there is always someone around. At night the watchmen are there to provide security and assistance.

The Neighborhood:
Green/nature setting. Local village life in the day time and peaceful in the night time.

Getting Around:
The T House staff can assist with arranging transport including:
Motorbike rental
Bicycle rental (one bicycle free for guest use)
Driver/taxi service into Ubud
Fantastic local driver with good English available for excursions and tours around the island

They can also arrange other services such as massage, laundry and freshly prepared local food (please order one day in advance).

Other Things to Note:
Rates include breakfast, wifi and daily maid service. Airport transfer (one-way) is also included for a minimum 3-night stay (our driver can also pick up from Kuta and other locations, a small surcharge may apply).

Current rates also include 15% local tax and service charge, so there is nothing to pay on arrival.

As the house is situated on the rice-paddies, if you are afraid of a few insects, frogs or geckos, you may be happier at a resort.

Car: Not Necessary

Ubud, a town in central Bali, is far removed from the crowded scene in Kuta, and is regarded as the cultural centre of Bali. It is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seems to consist of artists' workshops and galleries.

It's a place for contemplation, walking, biking, not to forget shopping and relaxing. Massages, spa's and yoga, it's all there in large quantities and qualities. There are some remarkable architectural and other sights to be found, and a general feeling of well being to be enjoyed, all thanks to the spirit, surroundings, and climate of the place.
