Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This luxury hotel is all about the traditions and beauty of Bali. Every villa is a suite with a tranquil atmosphere and an eye for detail. Everything is presented as though it’s a work of art. Yellow marigolds are everywhere around the complex decorating Hindu statues that line the walkways to each villa. There are lily ponds and lots of lush greenery and flowers all around the property. The service is also incredible. Manik is one of the people who works in the reception area and he is extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. There is nothing he or any other employee won’t do to make your stay more enjoyable. They will arrange tours, dance shows, shuttles to and from town (free of charge!) and just about anything else you can think of. We also chose to have breakfast included in our stay and are very happy we did. We could have it delivered to our room or eat at the reception area. We always chose our room and sat on the balcony overlooking a stream and jungle. It was the perfect way to begin each day. We cannot recommend Alam Jiwa enough! We hope to return someday and stay longer. It’s a true gem.

Our 10 day stay at Alam Jiwa far exceeded our expectations, with the kind, friendly and attentive staff giving us outstanding care. The small, intimate hotel is set in beautiful gardens, hidden away next to rice paddies and a lush, natural landscape. The hotel is designed in authentic Balinese style, with accommodation that ensures privacy, and balconies with varying garden and/or rice field views. Rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable with a generous breakfast served on the private balconies or by the pool. Lunch and dinner can be ordered in. A short walk down a quiet lane takes you to the heart of the delightful village of Nyuh Kuning (just south of Monkey Forest) with its attractive streets lined with frangipane trees, shrines and a wide range of small restaurants and coffee shops. Ubud is about 20 minutes walk away, although the hotel also provides a shuttle service on-demand. While some guests used the hotel as a base for excursions, we mostly wanted peace and relaxation, reading and swimming, and de-stressing from the first day. We are now planning our return trip.

Alam Jiwa is a hidden gem in Ubud. The staff's kindness and constant availability made our stay truly special. The spacious rooms seamlessly blend with nature, offering a serene retreat. Waking up to natural sounds was pure bliss. For an authentic Bali experience, this place is a must. It captures Ubud's essence perfectly. Whether you seek nature, culture, or tranquillity, it delivers. Our stay was exceptional; we can't wait to return. We highly recommend it!

We stayed in Alam Jiwa Ubud for 3 days 2 nights, one bedroom suite with breakfast. The service was great, staffs were helpful and nice. Variety of breakfast freshly made. That was first time to stay near the country side, in our room has an outdoor shower, you can enjoy your morning shower with beautiful butterflies :) One thing more, please be aware there are some noises (like dog barking, frog quack) during the night.

This was our second stay at this marvellous resort and we’d forgotten just how good it is. From the moment you check in to when you reluctantly check out, it is simply a different world and fantastic in every way. Accommodation – each is individual and very cleverly laid out to give maximum privacy. Ours had a four poster bed with mosquito net and lots of traditional furniture. The bathroom was huge with a beautiful outdoor shower overlooking the rice fields – quite an unbelievable experience to get clean here! There is a safe, umbrellas, fridge, hot drinks, making facilities – everything you need for a very comfortable’s day. The air-conditioning was just about good enough to keep cool but we had a fan which helped as well. Wi-Fi – you don’t really come to this kind of place to experience blistering Wi-Fi, but it was good enough. It reached the room and was best around the pool Where you could stream video should you like. Food – we were served breakfast in our room and it’s the best breakfast I’ve ever had. We used to get the banana pancakes with coconut which were amazing along with excellent juice and coffee. You can choose a cooked breakfast, but we just had fruit with yoghurt and bakery which set us up wonderfully for the day. Location – very good indeed. You are in a small village with shops and restaurants and it is a 25 minute walk through monkey Forest into town. Staff – simply amazing. Pool – small but very beautiful. There are seven sun lounges around it and it does get popular. There is also other sitting areas or your balcony should be full. Very discreet, but There in a moment should you need them. I like the tipping system here which is to save it all until the end and put it in a box which is shared amongst all the staff. This seems a fair way of doing things and it would be good for the hotels adopted it.

We just had our forth stay at Alam Jiwa, this time in the Merpati room. It's such a peaceful and relaxing place and the room has a great view of the rice fields and Mt Agung. It's close to many very good restaurants and I recommend Alam Jiwa highly.

I stayed here in July for a week. This place was absolute bliss! The rooms are large and spacious with gorgeous outdoor bathrooms. Lovely sounds from nature at night. Such a peaceful place! The breakfast was so delicious! You can have it on your balcony. Beautifully served and can be ordered in the morning when you wake up or the night before. The banana pancakes are really good. Staff are so accommodating and friendly. I would love to stay again! Fantastic place.
