About Us

Ketut farm homestay is a Balinese family Homestay set in a large tropical garden, in the village of Cepaka-Gadung Sari – Selemadeg Timur in the beautiful Tabanan region of  Bali, Indonesia.
Our Homestay is conveniently located 60 Km from Denpasar Airport, about 1 hour and 15 minuts drive. Safe and reliable pick up and transfer from any location in Bali can be easily arranged.

 

Cepaka is a small village with a population of 475, made up mostly of farmers committed to continuing traditional Balinese values. Our strong community works harmoniously together. We have Kindergarten and Elementary school in the village and our school teacher come from the Village. We have three main Hindu Temples and some  smaller temples. Each family compound has its own Temple. Our village cemetery is also used for cremation ceremonies.

 

Cepaka has beautiful rice terraces on  the slopes of Mount Batukaru. Local plantations grow crops of coconuts, coca, caffee, banana, papaya, pineapple and bamboo. We also plant  spices and vegetables, and raise chickens, ducks, cows, buffalos and wild butterfly.

 

The village is just like a lush tropical forest. Our beautiful location offers great hiking opportunities.
I am your host, Ketut Sudiasa. I was born in 1968 and have experience in the Hotel industry  and  have been working as a tour guide since 1993. My guest are mainly European and i speak both English and German. I offer driving and tours services throughout Bali and East Java as well as host guests staying on our Farm Homestay.

 

My wife, Made, speaks some English and although she has restaurant cooking experience she now stays home to take care of children and help my mother cook. We have 3 children. One doughter (Candra) and twin boys (Krisna and Yoga). Yoga is now adopted by my brother because he and his wife could not have a baby. Altogether we are ten people including my grandmother and my parents.

 

Our wish is to offer guests a memorable, peaceful and authentic rural Balinese experience. We do this by providing comfortable clean rooms, excellent meals made with local ingredients; by offering cooking classes for Indonesian cuisine, exposing and including guest in our spiritual traditons and ceremonies, sharing our farming technique and welcoming guests in to our friendly family culture.
