Wondering what it’s like to spend some days in the jungle?
Allow us to share a bit more information and our frequently asked questions, that will share a bit more about us, about our location, food at Hideout Bistro and transport options.
Who we are and how we work?
Hideout family is a small team created by our friends and families in local villages.
We take care of Hideouts. We never thought we will be a hotel, so please don’t expect a 24/7 reception and services, but we do our best to provide the most relaxing and joyful experience. We are here for you every day, between 7 – 10 pm. if you want a daily clean-up, just let us know when you check-in or in the morning. We would never enter your Hideout without an invitation – but we are always happy to help in any way we can.
Beware that the nearest ATM is from a local bank, it only accepts Mastercard. International ATM is about 35 minutes by car away – do come prepared!
First time in the jungle?
Hideout is part of local nature, our cleaning standards are at the highest, but that doesn’t stop occasional insect, furry caterpillar (that should have a sign – do not touch), frog, snake or mouse from visiting the house.
Please consider this before booking and do not book this house if you are not prepared for an occasional encounter. We are immersed in nature. Animals are friends, not enemies.
We urge you to always turn your lights on in the night when moving around the house or visiting the bathroom.
Did you know that a spider can make a new web in under 1 hour?
With our biggest efforts to keep the houses perfect and insect free, you have to expect that there will be some spiders, some bugs and some mosquitos. That is just nature and we can’t do anything more for it. If you don’t feel comfortable with that, it is better to book a different type of accommodation than a bamboo house.
The Internet is very poor and sometimes not working at all.
We recommend being prepared for the off-the-grid experience.
If you don’t feel like cooking or going out, don’t worry, we have a delicious Hideout Bistro – a kitchen concept! We provide breakfast (included in the price) lunch and dinner, and all can be brought to your house. We do not yet have restaurant seating, but you can enjoy the meals in the privacy of your Hideout.
Hideout Bistro is not an open restaurant – we do not serve to walk-in guests. Any ordered meal is served in the privacy of your Hideout. Menu is available at the house and can be sent over upon request before arrival.
The Bistro is open from 8am-8pm. Beside meals, we also serve cold Bintang and wines from Sababay winery.
Please take a careful look at the map, we are over 90 minutes away from the Ubud and 2 hours from the city of Denpasar and the international airport.
The closest city is Amlapura, 30min away. There is no night-life here.
No bars, clubs, coffee houses or shops with imported products. We are this far from the city by choice. In the middle of rice fields with a calm setting next to the running river.
Hideout is within walking distance from a resort where you can have a lovely dinner in the restaurant with an unforgettable view of Gunung Agung. You can easily reach many traditional small shops/warung. There are so many things to explore around – by foot or by bike. Just to mention … you can go trekking through the rice fields, explore local waterfall Jagasatru, visit Tirta Gangga, Ujung Temple, go snorkelling or diving, visit the night market, visit shaman or local temples, go to experience Pura Besakih, have a wild day of rafting and many more.
How can we help with your transport and arrival/departure?
Check-in is 3pm – 7pm, please avoid check-in later than 8pm since it is very problematic, and in some cases not possible! Check-out by 11am.
If you would welcome transport services, we are happy to share contacts for our recommended driver once you have a confirmed reservation. Our recommended drivers can pick you up anywhere from the island, arrange day trips and guide you at some locations as well. If you know that you will have a late flight – and thus a late night arrival, we strongly recommend to use our verified drivers that offer fair price and safe arrival and check-in at Hideouts.
