Features of this homestay
Unique moments at Buda’s Homestay
Wow, this place is amazing and definitely something for the lone wolves beneath you. The location of this guesthouse is about a hundred meters north of the Dalem temple (‘Pura Dalem’) in Lemukih Ancient Villages. The village is protected by nine main temples that offer classical Balinese art and the uniqueness of ceremonies. You’ll find your self in the middle of nowhere surrounded by lush rice fields, jaw-dropping waterfalls and holy springs. These holy springs play important roles during ceremonies as they are believed to purify the inner and outer self.
The rooms at Buda’s Homestay are simple but decent. But truth being spoken, who needs fancy facilities if you have this one million star view and rich culture right at your doorstep?
Here, now and forever happy.
Meet your host Buda. He is an extraordinary person that has dedicated his life to the village and to achieve happiness. He loves to introduce his guests to his culture and to show them the traditional Balinese way of life. He does not have fixed room rates. He gives interested people shelter and lets them decide how much they would like to donate after their stay, “because here I have nothing but the intention of happy our guests as much as I can”.
A fellow traveller found this magical place!
All of our gratitude goes to Sven who found this little piece of paradise on earth during his vacation on Bali. He has shared his experience at Buda’s Homestay and let us use his pictures. Thanks, bro! Below is a short review from his stay translated to English. Sit back, grab a coffee and enjoy!
“We were in North Bali at the Fiji Waterfalls when we found this little Homestay in the middle of Paradise by coincidence. You can enjoy amazing rice field views and just beside the fields is a holy spring what makes this place somewhat mystical. There are no tourists, which is why the locals over there are still very loving and genuinely hospitable. Our host – Buda – took us on a secret trek through the rice fields of Lemukih to the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen in my life. After that, we were invited to take a shower in the holy spring.
In the evening Buda took us to a spot on a hill where we watched the sunset over the rice terraces. Our plan was to stay only one night but in the end, we stayed three nights. This was one of the best experiences we have had during our Bali holiday, not only because of the stunning setting but also because of the lovely host who invited us to peek into the Balinese religion and culture.
Everyone who seeks a genuine and original Bali experience should stay at least one night at “Lemukih Ancient Village” Homestay and trek the waterfalls with Buda. I was so happy staying there. In the end, I gladly paid for this great stay. I could choose how much I wanted to pay.”
Don’t want to spend the night? Book a tour only!
