About Us

Om Swastiastu!   Welcome to Bali!

Alam Indah means beautiful nature and the owners of Café Wayan, Ibu Wayan and Bapak Ketut have created an ambience at our small hotels reflecting the beautiful nature of Bali.
This all began in 1986 when Cafe Wayan opened with six tables and two bamboo guest bungalows. Shortly after, our first guesthouse called Kebun Indah was built out in the rice fields of Pengoseksan Road.
Bapak Ketut, self-evolved from traditional artist to architect, began designing gardens and transforming spaces with local craftsmen and artisans.  Alam Indah opened in 1995 behind the Monkey Forest in Nyuh Kuning Village followed by Alam Jiwa and Alam Shanti.  Our accomodations blend in open-air Bali living with modern amenities in traditional architecture. Within beautiful natural settings, staying with us will feel like a peaceful retreat- yet also a connection to interact with Balinese culture. We wish for guests who have traveled so far to come to Bali, to also feel the essence of Bali.

There are NO TV’s in the rooms- no such distraction.  Alam Jiwa and Alam Shanti rooms have phones with connection via the office.
Local SIM Cards are easily available in Ubud for mobile phones. 
WiFi access is available and extends to the rooms, but please understand Ubud is not always on par with high-speed internet as the outside world.

We do not have an open-bar at the Alam properties. Beer is available. Local or imported wines may be ordered from Cafe Wayan or Laka Leke.

Our staff come from traditional villages, some from remoter parts of Bali where life still continues very much unlike the newly developed Bali world. Village community life remains very strong and this also reflects in our business space. Some of our staff have been with us since the beginning years. They all love to extend a warm welcome with a sincere wish you will be comfortable and enjoy experiencing Bali.  

There are many activities to choose from. We are happy to recommend private local drivers and guides. Partake in cooking classes or endulge in spa treatments. Music and traditional dance groups perform each evening in Ubud. A large choice of dining experiences are available in town and for those wishing to enjoy a quiet evening, our staff are happy to cater to dining requests in-house.  Read more about Activities in Bali and enjoy browsing through this website.
Over the years, we have been so pleased to welcome many return visitors who feel they are returning to their Bali home away from home.


We look forward to welcoming you
