This is Part 2 of my write-up for Bayu Guest House, a wonderful Balinese-style guest house that is located in central Ubud, Bali. To read the write-up and see the photos from Part 1, kindly click here - Bayu Guest House @ Ubud, Bali (Part 1). As promised, I will be sharing photos of the (Rama) room which I stayed in during my two nights stay at Bayu Guest House.
Travellers can choose to stay in either one of the three individually unique rooms - Bayu, Rama or Sita. Both Rama and Sita rooms are located on the ground floor whereas the Bayu room is located upstairs, just beside the cosy common area. I will elaborate more on that along with the facilities provided in the next write-up. Today's write-up will be focused more on the rooms and just about everything about it.
Both Bayu and Rama rooms can occupy a single to up to two occupants (or extra if you have children travelling with you) at one time. The Sita room has the capacity to occupy more occupants. All three rooms have en-suit bathrooms with hot/cold water, is fully air-conditioned and is fully equipped with facilities such as a stocked-up mini fridge, hair-dryer, television with cable channels, electric kettle, toiletries, clothes hanger/rack, electric insect repellent and even slippers!
The room with the best view would be the Rama room - my lovely room which is located just next to the paddy field. It has its very own patio overlooking the paddy field where travellers can just sit and chill; enjoying the natural surroundings while being serenaded by cicadas by the day and crickets by the night. The view in Bayu room is equally good for you will be able to enjoy the same view from a much higher ground.
There is a huge bathing tub/jacuzzi in the Bayu room whereas in the Rama room, you can take a shower in three ways: 1) through the mobile shower head, 2) from above just like you are in the rain; singing raindrops keep falling on my head or 3) via the massaging body spray/shower. I tried all three ways and I enjoyed it very much, however my favourite would be taking a shower as if I am in the rain and singing to B.J Thomas' number.
What I love about my (Rama) room:
- Nicely scented, ironed and clean bathrobes for him and her are provided
- Nicely scented, fresh and clean body, face and even hand towels are provided every day
- Bottles of clean mineral water, packets of instant coffee, tea, and sugar are replenish every day
- The mini fridge is stocked with isotonic drinks, carbonated drinks and Bintang beer too
- There are ice cubes in the mini fridge to my delight
- The room is spacious, clean and well-kept. Did I mention that they clean the room every day?
- There are travel guide books, phamplets and information on the available tours, tourist attractions, operating hours and the things to see/do in Ubud and Bali
- Breakfast is served with a choice of having it at the patio overlooking the paddy field or in the common area upstairs
- Heck, I love just everything about it!
The little glitches of the room:
- Due to its location being just next to the paddy field and in the countryside, there are many bugs around (Tips: Mosquito coils are lit-up every night at the patio so that should do the trick of keeping those harmless bugs away)
- Due to the use of the electric insect repellent in the room, there are many tiny dead bugs in the room the night after/in the morning (Tips: They clean the room every day/morning or whenever you're not around)
- Also, due to its location that is facing the east towards the sunrise, the room can get pretty hot and bright in the mornings. (Tips: Pull the curtains and set the air-conditioner to maximum capacity)
- Other than the above, I could not find any fault with the room
To be honest, the issue of live or dead bugs or even when the room sometimes gets too hot in the morning did not bother me at all because I see it as just a tiny matter not worth getting heated-up/agitated for. Life is short and there are more things in life to be valued and enjoyed so just make the best out of what you have/get and do not let such petty things get to you and destroy your happiness/stay/travels.
For me, being able to wake-up to cool, fresh air and seeing greenery as far as the eye can see is a bliss; a piece of heaven on earth and I get that feeling/experience being in Bayu Guest House. With that, I shall now let the photos do the talking. Enjoy!
