Our home is an ideal place for independent travelers and those who want to feel and experience nature in a truly local environment. It is a very special place and experience that is not for everyone! Umah Dewi Sri is our home. We are not a hotel nor a private villa! Before you book please read carefully the section “Other things to note” further down!
Waking up in your cozy queen size bed and opening the doors to the balcony of your bedroom in the second floor, overlooking pristine nature, you will feel like admiring a beautiful Balinese painting.
Without the need for an air condition in the unpolluted and fresh climate and thanks to the big, arched rice grass roof that allows the space under it to breath naturally, you will have enjoyed a healthy nights rest. Only the sound of flowing water and an orchestra of crickets and frogs will have composed the soundtrack of the night below a star-filled sky.
After the (included) breakfast we like to start slow and often sit on the sofa in the open living room for a moment and watch time go by. Take your time out. You deserved it. "Sabar" as they say in Bali. Take it easy :)
When the sun is out, refresh yourself in the shared infinity pool with its sweeping vistas over Sidemen Valley towards the majestic Mount Agung. If you feel like, take the rustic wooden stairs down the garden and tip your toes into the clear water of the rippling creek running in front of the property. Especially in the early morning and the late afternoon you will meet the friendly people of the nearby village bathing and washing their clothes and some others passing by, coming from the fields and caring their harvest on their heads. It doesn't get more picturesque than that.
You might just find yourself not wanting to leave this little corner of Paradise but if your adventure lust takes the better of you take a short stroll into the rice fields and down to the river for a swim. Or go for a walk around Sidemen Valley and its authentic villages and witness the daily local life as it unfolds.

On weekends and holidays we are usually having our time out and are relaxing in one of the two Lumbung houses. Don't worry, we totally respect your privacy.
Umah Dewi Sri is located on the outskirts of a small Balinese Village. It is a pleasant 20 - 30 minutes walk along ricefields and across the river to the busier Tebolah village of Sidemen. This is where most of the hotels are located and here you will find some nice restaurants in case you feel like to eat out.
In the main Sidemen village you will find a local market, though you have to get up early as it closes around 8 am, as well as some local shops and of course the traditional weavers of Sidemen.
For those who love to walk and have a little trek our area is ideal. You may leave directly from the house and walk along the irrigation system through beautiful rice fields and farmland, along the river where you can swim and through authentic and wonderful Balinese villages with the ever-present Mount Agung observing it all from a distance.
Behind the houses is a small road that to one side leads to the village and going to the other side invites for an enjoyable ride with the scooter along quiet roads and through truly authentic Balinese villages and some spectacular rice fields and terraces.
If you prefer to hire a guide or a driver to get around, if you would like to have a massage or do some other local activities, please ask our staff and they will gladly arrange for you what is in their possibilities.
PLEASE CONSIDER BEFORE BOOKING OUR HOME!
We are not in or close to Ubud! We are also not in the Tebola village that Sidemen is often referred to!

We are not a hotel and we do not provide 24/7 hotel like reception! Our staff will be around during the day to clean your room, change your sheets and towels and prepare meals and snacks if you wish.
If you would like to have lunch or dinner in the privacy of your house you may pre-order in the morning from our selected menu. We do not stock all items as we are not a restaurant though we need some preparation time.
During night time a security guard will be on the property.
WILDLIFE & PETS
Our home is part of local nature and also our cleaning standards are very high it is impossible to stop bugs, bees, lizards, frogs, geckos & Co. from visiting the house and its surroundings. We are surrounded by nature which we consider as a gift.
Our rescue dog Bobo is a permanent resident in Umah Dewi Sri.
If you are uncomfortable with so much nature please consider that our place might not be suitable for you!
Our place is openly designed and we purposely haven't erected high walls or fences. We have enough of those in the city. The house is private but there are areas, like the open living room and the shared infinity pool, where passersby are able to see into. The creek in front of the property is used by local farmers to go to their fields. Local trekking guides love to take their clients for a walk along that creek as well. We told you, it is picturesque here :) The local people are very friendly and might say hello when they see you. Some might even want to have a little chat with you. A wonderful way to get involved and discover the authentic spirit of Bali.
The nearest ATM is in Sidemen Village a 10 minutes drive from our home. There is only one (1) ATM in Sidemen at this time and sometimes might not work.
We can not process credit card payments for additional services like meals, massages etc.
We have free WiFi on our property. However in this a rural area internet is not the fastest and there might be times it isn't working at all for some time.
The beauty of the bedroom is a big glass window that lets you see the night sky when you fall asleep. In the morning the rising sun will wake you up :) The curtains do not block out the sunlight completely but we provide sleeping masks.
Bath robes and eye masks you find in your bedroom as well as coffee and tea making facilities.
