These very centrally located rooms (River View, Lotus View and the deluxe Waterfall Room) all have air conditioning, wifi, western style bathrooms and include housekeeping, breakfast and free tea and coffee during the day.

Walk down some steps and along a leaf imprinted pathway to the house and it’s delightful garden.

Papaya, mango, avocado and banana trees nestle among an array of tropical flowers…..
Ruby red hibiscus in an arch over the pathway, ferns hanging from stone walls, lotus and colourful bougainvillea and, of course, many jepun (where the name ‘Rumah Jepun’ comes from – it means: frangipani house).

Nature can be heard in the sound of the river, in the song of the birds and from a bamboo instrument called a rindik.

Butterflies and dragonflies are daily visitors and you may see our two outdoor cats, Jojo and JJ playing on the lawn.

You can sit on your private ground floor balcony or maybe have a cup of coffee or tea next to the river on a bale (gazebo) with an alang alang (thatch) roof.

    Hi Julie & a great big Merry Christmas to you! Thinking back a year ago of spending a month in beautiful Bali (mostly with you) brings back many rich & happy memories! I hope all is well with you (& all your precious friends in Ubud) & I hope to stay at Rumah Jepun again someday.

    Dear Julie, staying at Rumah Jepun has been a very happy experience. It’s beautiful and serene, and really a home away from home. I miss it already. Thank you for your hospitality, and also to Ketut and Gede who were always helpful. Happy birthday to Rumah Jepun.

    • Thank you so much Tanti. I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay here and we look forward to welcoming you back next time you come to Bali. Hati hati, Julie
