Citrus Tree B&B- Mai Malu is very homey. It only consists of three rooms for the whole home-stay that gives a local feeling of exclusivity. It has a very simple breakfast though. But being a fruit lover, me and my family appreciated the fresh platter of fruits that comes with the breakfast daily. One downside of our stay was the... More

we ve found it by mistake as we took it as one of local temple. the place is run by very nice family, and eventually we stayed there 4 night instead of 2 as previously indented. great location in heart of the Ubud. close to good at least 2 warung-s (restaurants). we had really nice time there.

Mai Malu is really basic home stay with clean rooms, ac, wifi, hot water and breakfast included. It's located in small street, where are defenitely the best restaurants around Ubud. Just next door is Melting Wok, which is one the best restaurants I've ever been! Mai Malu is quiet and safe. Could stay there another time too.

We stayed here for three nights in total. Room was big, clean and comfortable. The "veranda" for breakfast overlooking the fishpond was a perfect serene spot for the delicious breakfast (included).

Clean, simple and centrally located (but far away from traffic and chaos). Good value for money. Breakfast is delightful and freshly made, served on your room terrace every day. Room cleaning is usually made once a week. In the same street you can find some of the best warungs and cafes in Ubud. They also offer tours and arrange transfers... More

We found this place by walking around and got extremely lucky! The room were spacious and clean. They all overlooked this beautiful Balinese garden. The breakfast was delicious and all the staff were lovely. Close to everything in Ubud (temples, monkey forest, restaurants, etc). Definitely recommend it!

The homestay is perfectly located on Goutama street, right in the middle of cute little cafes & restaurants. It's basic but clean, and have AC & hot water, with friendly staff. I would recommend booking it direct to Putu & get almost half the price of what's published on the definitely overpriced online booking sites.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are happy to read you enjoyed your stay. We also thank you for sharing with us that a team member is actually quoting wrong prices and trying to take cash to confirm bookings directly without going via the management.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Operated by Pak Putu and his family since 2010, this home stay is situated in the middle of Ubud and on one of the nicest and most central streets in the area - Jl. Gootama. It is so easy to escape from the busy and noisy street life and relax in this family who run an 11-room home stay, which is quiet, comfortable and very well priced. With a setting featuring verdant gardens, beautiful family temple, lava rock walls, koi pond and singing birds, the eleven rooms at Mai Malu are all clean and spacious with porches that look into a central courtyard and communal bale area. Operated by Pak Putu and his family since 2010. Right outside on the street are two very delicious restaurants, Devilicious and Melting Wok (who are well known for their fresh curries) while down the road are tailors, laundry services, more restaurants, amenity shops, the Ubud main market and much more. ... more   less
