Rumah Laplapan isn’t another ‘Bali villa’, luxury resort or even boutique hotel. Rumah Laplapan is made up of three separate houses of different sizes and styles, which can be rented individually or as one ‘retreat’ property. We think of it as an immersive Bali holiday experience – a home where you enjoy living in and interacting with a Balinese village, but with all the privacy, comfort & pampering you desire.
Our guests tend to be travelers rather than tourists: We’ve hosted authors, artists, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, travel bloggers, triathlon trainees, honeymooners, academic researchers, yogis and yoginis, overworked NGO folks and underworked meditation gurus.
All of them shared one thing: the desire for a place of tranquility where they can unwind and do their thing. Some sleep all day, some write all day, others cook gourmet meals in our fully-equipped kitchen. Some go wellness-hopping between Ubud’s endless spas & yoga studios, while others use our place as a comfy base for exploring the island, often hiring one of our excellent drivers to lead them to the most beautiful spots in Bali. And a few just spend all day and night in our gorgeous swimming pool, sipping wine or beer or smoothies perched atop our floating bean bags, wondering what day of the week it is and when the on-call massage therapist is going to arrive again.
The compound has a full-time staff: two housekeepers who cleans & do laundry 5 days a week; a gardener; and security guards at night. Your rent includes electricity, water & our unlimited fast fibre-optic Wi-Fi, which can be used indoor and out. Our kitchens are fully equipped: stovetop burners, refrigerator, toaster oven/baking oven, electric water kettle, french press for coffee, juicer/blender, mineral water dispenser, cooking dishes, crockery, cutlery, tumblers, wine glasses, etc. We also provide complimentary filtered drinking water, coffee, tea, sugar, cooking oil and spices.
Bedrooms are very private: floor-to-ceiling glass windows have blackout blinds for complete privacy at night and in case you want to sleep in the next morning. Air-conditioners keep the space chilled even on the hottest day, and ceiling fans keep the air circulating. Modern studio spotlights & table lamps ensure plenty of illumination when you want to read, write, work or dine & drink late into the night. En-suite bathrooms boast luxurious rainforest shower heads & hot water any time of day or night. We also include complimentary soaps, shampoos, bed linens & towels.
As a guest, you’ll also receive our personally curated Guide Book - a directory that not only explains the Rumah Laplapan experience, but is also packed with insider tips & recommendations on Ubud and its surroundings, including places to eat, drink, shop, learn, spoil yourself, and take in local Balinese culture.
The house is an easy, scenic 3km drive from central Ubud, and takes about 10 minutes by car and 8 minutes by scooter. The most enjoyable & efficient way to get around is by automatic scooter. We can book these for you, and they cost about $5 per day. We also have a roster of freelance drivers you can hire for car trips into town and back for about $7 per hour, or you can have your own car for a full day about $50 with personal driver, or $30 self-drive. If you're a strong cyclist and don't mind a few steep hills, you can also rent a bicycle. Finally, you can use one of the popular location based ride-hailing apps like Go-Jek or Grab, to order scooter taxis or regular cars.
