Kebun means orchard or garden in Bahasa Indonesia. Pathways and steps lead you all around Kebun, through gardens, past ponds, fountains, paddy fields and even a natural spring. Everywhere there are places to sit and chat or just relax and listen to the sound of running water, the wind in the trees. It is bliss to swim in the pool right next to the ricefields.
Individually designed and spacious rooms filled with a collection of Indonesian antiques are spaced through the property, making this a very special boutique place to stay.
It lies on the slopes of Mount Batukaru in the heart of Bali, 500m above sea level, with a view down to the sea and across the west coast of Bali to Kuta and beyond to Uluwatu in the far south of the island.
Kebun is filled with frangipani, heliconia, coconut palms, coffee, clove, cocoa, durian and mangosteen trees. You will see butterflies and birds during the day time. In the evenings, you might see a firefly. Visitors have a rare opportunity to make the most of being in Bali, walking through shade and peace in a beautiful natural paradise.
All eleven rooms have large verandahs, double beds, bathrooms with shower and hot water and facilities for making drinks. Breakfast for two is included in the room rate, and our team of Balinese staff will clean your room daily. Rooms are furnished with antique and recycled Indonesian teak furniture, showing off the owner's cherished collection. The rooms are set in the large garden, overlooking the pool and ricefields. Our restaurant has a large sun terrace which is also a magical place to sit out at night under the stars.
Kebun is an hour and a half by road from the major tourist centres of Kuta and Ubud, on the rice field road that leads to Pupuan and the north coast.
