Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
Additional Location Information
20 minutes NE of Ubud central in a small village named Pesalakan. From Ubud, head straight through Arjana statue along the small road following the Ubud Villa signs to Pejeng market and the Pejeng Moon Temple (a favorite place of worship for full moon ceremonies), turn right and you will be on Jalan Tampaksiring.
Turn right at the curve of the hill where you see the Ubud Villa main sign and a small statue. Past Villa Ubud (swimming pool available here) and left at the T-intersection. Follow this road for 5 minutes up the small hill through the countryside. Curve to the right at the top to Pesalakan Banjar (village).
You will see our sign on your right just before the village. Cars can park here. Swallow Guesthouse is in the rice field (270m) on the right side. If you are on motorbike, ride your bike down the paved path. It is a lovely peaceful walk.
Because we are in a local village, public transportation is limited. Shuttle service is available for standard taxi prices of $10/one-way or for budget travelers, ride on the back of Putri or Wayan's scooter for short trips to Ubud for $5/trip. If you are going to want to be in Ubud every day, we suggest to rent a motorbike or car to get to town. Reasonable prices are available for daily/weekly/monthly rental. Bicycle rental is also available for exploring the quiet country roads.
Pesalakan Pejeng is the location of the ancient Hindu Kingdom that came over in the 6th century. Hidden meditation chambers and temples are scattered along the Kris River just walking distance away. Ask Putri to show you the way. Enjoy exploring (on foot or bike) the quiet walking paths along the irrigation systems and small country roads that lead from village to village. Nearby, there is a small local market and several ancient temples where you can meet the locals and enjoy their countless smiles and daily rituals. As a Hindu race, people are very giving and non-threatening to heighten their karma. They love showing you their culture and sharing the ongoing ceremonies. You may even be invited to help harvest the rice.

Thank you, we look forward to accommodating and touring with you in the REAL Bali.
We are a GREEN GUESTHOUSE and hope you can share in respecting the environment too.
Ask Putri about our 'Karma Yoga' program to help the community protect the “Sawa” from the plastic in the waterways.
If you are doing your own cooking, organic waste can be added to the garden under the large fruit trees. Put your non-organic waste into the blue bin or take to the organic farm called "Simantri", a Balinese government sponsored project for organic farming.
Swallow Guesthouse is trying to educate the locals about the harmful effects of plastic in the environment and is working with Bali Recycling, a NGO who provides non-organic waste removal from rural villages in Bali. If you would like to assist, please put your non-organic waste into the red metal bins found in the Simantri or by the warung (small food shop) in the village.
We also distribute clothing and school supplies to rural communities in Bali. One such community is Munduk where we are assisting Rainbowbend Yayasan (local NGO http://www.lingkarpelangi.com) Supplies are greatly appreciated!
If you wish to visit the local schools in Pejeng and meet the children, please ask Wayan to arrange a visit.
We truly aim to assist in community sustainability and environmental stewardship.
