About Us

Om Swastiastu!   Welcome to Bali!

Alam Indah means beautiful nature and the owners of Café Wayan, Ibu and Bapak Mangku Wayan and 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. The  first Alam property opened in 1995 behind the Monkey Forest in Nyuhkuning Village. Within a beautiful natural setting, 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.
Our accomodations blend in open-air Bali living with modern amenities in traditional architecture. Bapak Ketut, self-evolved from traditional artist to architect, has transformed spaces with local craftsmen and artisans. Most of our rooms have air-conditioning but you may also enjoy rooms only with ceiling fans embracing breezes and the scent of frangipani while listening to the sounds of nature. Living in “beautiful nature” means we also wish to live in harmony with other creatures of nature –such as geckos, frogs and sometimes even insects- after all, we are in the tropics!  Rooms have mosquito nets and mosquito coils are lit in the evening. Most guests do not find mosquitoes a big problem. In Bali we believe the geckos bring good luck to a house. They must move in before we do to look after the bugs!  So we ask that you open your heart and ears to the wonderful world of nature around us here. 

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 including daily evening cultural performances 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
