Experience the genuine Bali, with those who live there.
Sudanita Homestay is situated in a small village called Ababi, near Tirtagangga, at the foot of Mount Agung, East-Bali. Gede and Anita have built Sudanita Homestay with the help of the local people of Ababi. We decided to rent most of our newly built house and organize tours across Bali and wonderful walking-trips around Ababi. By doing so not only we hope to realize some income, for ourselves and for some Ababi-people, but most of all we like to offer an alternative away from the crowded tourist-scene. In the small village of Ababi you will be able to meet the local people and their daily activities; working in the ricepaddies, making Balinese offerings, bathing and washing at the open-air public bath, looking after the cattle and all other activties during the day.
We offer you the peace and quiet of East-Bali and a holiday in a homely atmosphere, from where you can discover the rest of Bali's natural and cultural beauty.
Sudanita Homestay is a pleasant mixture of Balinese and Western European influences,
which you will experience when you stay with us. Especially if you love walking, village-life, ceremonies, a Balinese massage, snorkelling in the sea, swimming in fresh spa-water, visiting the local market or a small local school, watching a lesson in Balinese dance with young children, enjoying our tropical garden and our delicious Balinese meals, then Sudanita Homestay is your place to be.
We guarantee a holiday full of wonderful Bali-impressions and a great story to tell your family at home.
