The Hideout is a unique eco stay for adventurous travellers, hidden high up in the misty mountains of Gunung Agung volcano. This all-bamboo house is situated alongside a beautiful river among the rice fields. Get off the grid and experience the authentic life of a Balinese village.
Built in 2015, The Hideout is not a fancy hotel, but an adventure seeker’s getaway hidden in a Balinese forest. The experience is not like any other, it's an adventurous, rustic and authentic place to idle away the hours in amongst the middle of Balinese village life.
This house has two floors and includes a breezy outdoor living area (with a hammock), a well-sized wardrobe, private bathroom, and a gorgeous outdoor shower. There is also a fully equipped kitchen and a music/stereo system for your own personal use. Moving up to the second floor is the bedroom with a large queen bed (complete with mosquito net).
The house looks out over a small stream which runs fresh and clear down the misty tops of Mount Agung. Feel free to take a refreshing dip in the natural swimming pool which river provides and don't be surprised if you see some locals doing the same thing. The house is on the edge of a local village so you'll be able to experience authentic Balinese lifestyle, cultural habits and observe many wonderful things in nature.
This experience is not like any other, this is not some fancy hotel, and you should be aware that it is truly an experience for the adventurous.
Because the house is located near the river and rice fields you will be in touch with nature. If you do not enjoy the company of local animals and wildlife, then this house might not be suitable for you.
The owners are kind enough to give you free access to an old scooter of theirs. it comes with two helmets, however, you might need to top it up with some petrol from time-to-time.
The hideout is deep in the middle of the remote forest of Mount Agung. It is a bit remote, but there are some local shops nearby as well as a resort where you can have a lovely dinner. There are many things to do nearby such as trekking through the rice fields, climbing Gunung Agung, visiting the Tirta Gangga and Ujung Temples, or even going snorkelling and scuba diving down at the coast.
The nearest airport is the Denpasar Airport down in the south of the island of Bali. Denpasar connects daily to most cities in South East Asia, such as Singapore and Bangkok and has direct flights to almost all major cities in Australia.
Our best advice, if coming from the airport is to get a taxi to the Hideout. You can also hire a car or scooter and drive yourself (around 2 hours), but beware of the intense Balinese traffic. (It is about 90mins from Ubud if you are coming from there).
