Luwak Coffee is available also for a small charge.  We highly recommended you accompany your coffee and tea with the banana fritters.  Lightly battered and fried these are to die for – many of our guest cannot stop at just one serve!

Tirta Empul or Holy Spring Temple has many areas to this complex –  fish ponds, many beautiful goddess statuse,  areas for prayer and reflection, pavilions for special ceremonies plus the ponds where you can see the springs coming from the ground. The holy springs fill a bathing area where the water blessing rituals takes place.   There are 13 beautiful fountains in three separate pond each having a special purpose.  When following the ritual you begin cleansing your body in the pond representing past life, followed by present life and finishing with future life.

  1. My home away from home. 5 Oct 17, 2017
    By Submission
    Choose the Cottages if you want a authentic experience or the Deluxe Cottage for more space and a view. Staff are friendly and provide great service. I did Yoga at the Yoga House most mornings and really enjoyed the walk from Bisma Cottages which was approx 20 minutes. After my practice I would walk back and grab a coffee (and sometimes a croissant) in town and continue wandering. I love Ubud town in the morning, the market is buzzing but everyone else is calm. Much better than in the middle of the day when all the day tourists arrive (and not so hot). For the price this place was amazing value and being only 6 rooms everything was more personable. Thats why I felt it was my home away from home. Cant wait to come back.
  2. Wonderful boutique hotel with ultimate value 5 Oct 12, 2017
    By yogaguidebali Administrator
    We had a great time staying at Bisma Cottages. The staff of super friendly and we felt at home here. The best part of the entire experience was the location of the property, being so close to downtown and of course the pool side massages for only 100,000 Rp ($7.50, plus tax/tip). They offer a great day tour for cheaper than the tour companies and each room is very clean and nice! Definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay near downtown Ubud with comfort and value.
