Finding accomodation in Ubud, Bali can be both easy and have its challenges too. It all depends on your budget, if you have no problem renting out a luxurious villa for yourself or group then you will see a variety of places to choose from and this is because Bali has sky rocketed to fame due to Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat. Pray. Love” so this means prices have shot up too. Bali is still cheap in comparrison to Western standards however a lot of Western business owners living in Bali expect tourists to pay Western prices. Most budget travellers will struggle to find something lovely that isn’t a hostel and isn’t close to Ubud town centre. My advice would be to find accomodation owned by locals, prices will be reasonable and you are supporting a Balinese family who will most likely love and care for you much more than the Western businessman who is only after making a profit.
After many hours researching, I found the perfect place- Gerebig Bungalows! The price is reasonable, its architecture is based on traditional Balinese huts, breakfast can be included in the price if you wish and that includes an array of fruits, pancakes, cooked spinach, egg with toast and so on. Scooters are available to hire, airport transfers can be booked and the managers can also assist you in planning day excursions.
