The Beehouse Dijiwa in Ubud, Bali is the Perfect Unique Stay

One of the most unique stays in Bali is tucked away in Ubud. Unlike many accommodations in Ubud, Beehouse Dijiwa Bali has a façade with circular constructed houses made of bamboo to resemble a beehive.

The creators of the Beehouse curated it to be a sanctuary for people to prioritize rest and focus on self-care. The private, adults-only resort is where people escape. Instead of motorbikes and cars, travelers are surrounded by beautiful rice paddies, lush greeneries and a view of Mount Agung. The resort is centered around a beautiful pool lagoon, which turns into an oasis on a hot day in Ubud.

Everything about the resort puts you in a tranquil state of mind that welcomes you as soon as you step foot on the property. In front, you will immediately notice the Beehouse Café, where you are graciously greeted by staff and a welcoming tea. Nature automatically invites you in as you walk through lush gardens and the stone pathways leading to the villas. 

Beehouse Dijiwa Ubud Location

Located 15 minutes from the Ubud town center, where you find popular attractions, such as the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary and the Ubud Art Market, the resort is tucked away along a trail of private homes and villas.

The Setungku Ceramics Studio is near the resort. Travelers can take a pottery class. Ceramics and pottery is a craft that people often associate with Bali.

Wake up to beautiful sunsets and walk along the adjacent path to witness an intimate rice field. While the location feels remote, the hidden road takes you back to the main road, where you will find many restaurants, boutique shops and cafes.


Beehouse Dijiwa Ubud offers two main room types: the Grand Deluxe Room and the Pool Villa. Both rooms have wood and bamboo with contemporary charm.

For the Grand Deluxe, you want to specify if you wish to have a one-level or two-level beehouse. If you’re staying in a two-level beehouse, note the living room is on the first floor. The two-level beehouses have balconies to overlook the property, pool and rice fields on location. In the two-level beehouses, the toilet and the shower are separate.

While there’s no view of the beehouses on the one-floor option, this Beehouse wins with the bathroom. It’s a beautiful bathroom with a standalone tub gives you a lot of maneuverable space.

Bee Café & Resort Amenities

One highlight of my stay was The Bee Café. The food was fresh and tasty, but the staff made the dining experience better. On excursion days, the staff prepared and packed my breakfast to go. This slight touch made a big difference, as I traveled to more remote places for excursions where the food pickings were slim.

On days in the resort, I received one complimentary floating breakfast experience. On the other days, I sat in the café with a gorgeous view of the lush rice terrace from the cafe or your room. The Bee Café was built with the Wantilan Subak, an irrigation community house, in mind. This is a place where farmers would gather to rest and eat after work.

In addition to the pool and café on site, the resort offers room service for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Massage therapists are available on-site at Massage Bale, and they curated a special menu inspired by Bali’s rich spices and culture.

Final Thoughts

You will find unique experiences throughout Bali from excursions to food. Your stay and experience will be unlike anything else in Bali.

There are a few less appealing things about the property, such as how difficult it can be to find for GoJek’s, which is Bali’s Uber equivalent, drivers.

Another thing to be cautious about is the nature in Bali. Traditional Balinese homes have open concepts that are built around nature and courtyards. There’s no barrier between you and wildlife other than rattan curtains. Beware of critters, such as lizards and snails. I was personally afraid after dark, but the staff was accommodating and walked me back to my room every night.
