Alam Shanti

Located just outside Ubud in Nyuhkuning Village, Alam Shanti is a peaceful intimate Balinese resort immersed in nature. Each of the 8 garden rooms are truly unique and feature the owner, Pat Ketut’s, beautiful carvings and vision to create a traditional Balinese villa family experience. 

Alam Shanti is a 10-minute walk to the Monkey Forest and Laka Leke Restaurant where you can enjoy an evening dance performance. There’s a complimentary shuttle car to and from the center of Ubud available on request. Lunch and Dinner may also be ordered in-house from Cafe Wayan or Laka Leke menus offering the option to simply eat-in and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.

Alam Wangi Spa is located here where you can enjoy traditional massage or aromatherapy treatments. The Alam Wangi Cafe serves fresh healthy juices and light meals poolside. Above the spa is Ketut’s Krinting's Studio exhibiting traditional Balinese paintings by Pak Ketut himself and other local artists. Alam Shanti is a wonderful base to explore this region of Bali with hiking and biking trips past emerald rice terraces and cultural visits to temples, artisan workshops and more.

Accommodations 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.

Alam Shanti has several types of accommodations to choose from in a beautiful and relaxing setting.   

The 2 deluxe garden view rooms are in one house with ensuite bathrooms with bathtub and separate shower, plus a separate private kitchen space which may be shared. Another deluxe home has 2 more garden view rooms. The deluxe rice field view rooms are 2 separate luxurious units in one house with spacious verandas offering views to the rice fields. Both have large garden bathrooms and a shared private pool.  A private kitchen on a lower level is also available for use. These bedrooms have both air-conditioning and ceiling fans. There are also two houses with three rooms set further back in the rice fields perfect for families and larger parties traveling together. Each room is different and uniquely designed with a variety of configurations to accommodate everyone’s needs.

Two Houses in Rice Fields offer a very private setting.  The two separate luxurious units have spacious verandas offering view to the rice fields. Both have spacious garden bathrooms. A secluded setting approx 190 meter walk from the reception or pool area. There is also access by car all the way to the rooms. Ideal for families or friends wishing to share a private space.

There are many options for activities within comfortable walking distance right in Nyuhkuning- to join a Cooking Class or Cultural workshop, see Dance and Music performances, endulge in spa treatments, ayurveda or yoga. And a walk or drive just off the main roads surrounding Ubud brings you to villages where the heart of Balinese culture  is still very much alive.

Ubud is in the middle of Bali, and international flights are in and out of the Denpasar Bali Airport, which is located on the southern tip of the island.  The drive time from Denpasar Airport to Ubud is around 90 minutes.
