Sneak a peek!

Very hidden place! How to find Ari Homestay?

Ari Homestay is located right at a beach called ‘Pantai Thomas’ and to get to this hidden spot, you will have to walk some stairs down the cliff. There is no sign at the main road that guides you to the right directions, therefore watch out for the Guesthouse sign of ‘Thomas Homestay’. Once you see it, turn into that dirt road until you reach the end where ‘Thomas Homestay’ is located. Walk right through that homestay and take the stairs down the cliff that will lead you directly to Ari Homestay. We suggest you to travel light and arrive before the sun sets.

  1. Highlight of our Bali trip.

    Ari homestay exceeded our expectations and then some !! Stunning location and a taste of bali away from the crowds. Ari made us so welcome and we’ll definitely be back.

  2. Very nice homestay with nice rooms and awesome location

    Situated directly on the beach Ari Homestay is definatly a recommendation, if you like to wake up to the sound of the waves. Ari and her staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are tidy and decorated in a nice bali fashion.

  3. Great homestay at the beach

    Ari Homestay was a really great place to stay. We started our Bali holiday there and is was just perfect: Directly at the beautiful beach (great to cure the jetlag!) and very warm and familiar atmosphere. There are beach cots in front of Ari Homestay which is very convenient, ordering a fresh coconut from time to time makes it even better 😉
    The room was great and a mosquito net was already installed.
    We do not hesitate to warmly recommend Ari Homestay!

  4. Beautiful beach!

    Ari and her team are so friendly and even though booking failed for unknown reasons, we were happy to stay there in an alternative room. Need to climb some steps but definitely worth it – beautiful and less crowdy beach, sunsets and delicious food. Took a surf lesson as well; also umbrella included. Perfect end of our Bali tour – just relax and enjoy surroundings!!! 🙂

  5. Peaceful ocean atmo

    Very nice homestay- beautiful, peaceful place with very good cooking and so lovely Ari+ staff
    Thank you

  6. Great location for ocean and nature lovers

    This familyrun homestay is right on the beach and you have to descend some steps to get to the place.
    Once you are there the view is outstanding, the ocean is just a few steps away and there is a small restaurant with good food. Sunbeds are included, there is a shared bathroom for 2 rooms on each floor, the staff is really friendly and helpful. You might get visited by some curious monkeys now and then.
    Really good restaurants, Spas or places to practice yoga are found at the main road after you climbed the steps. This place is good for surfers and you can rent boards right at the place.
    I would recommend the place for young people how would like to explore Uluwatu, love the ocean, nature and surfing. We had a good time there.

  7. I can not wait to go back!

    This homestay was the most beautiful one I stayed at during my three weeks on Bali. You have to “work” a little bit to get there, because it is such a hidden gem but it is more than worth it. To get there, you need to go down a flight of stairs from the top of a cliff but the view is amazing. As soon as I saw Ari Homestay, I fell in love. There is a beautiful garden up front and the welcome was very warm. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. Other advantages of this accommodation were definitely the delicious, homemade food and the “private” beach. When I think of my time there, only positive things occur to me; the friendliness, this wonderful place and as already mentioned, the super delicious food. If I were to return to the area, I would not hesitate to spend a few more days at this beautiful place.

  8. Like on Heaven!

    People say Bali is full of tourists and super busy. Not in the Bukit and not at all at Thomas Beach! I really love Ari Homestay – it is the perfect getaway for some peaceful moments. Also the cafe is a very nice spot to hang out, their Gado Gado and the Veggie Burger are my favourites. Together with a coconut and the view it’s priceless – I cant ask for more! Ari is wonderful an takes good care. The beach & the place are a real secret treasure!

  10. Stairway to heaven!

    Ari Homestay is one of the most beautiful Guesthouses on Bali, not only because of its amazing location directly at the beach, also because this place was build with love to detail.
    Already when you enter the property, you’ll find yourself in a cute little garden and be welcomed by a colourful “welcome sign”. The guesthouse itself has three stories. On the first floor is a small kitchen and sitting area, the second and third level are reserved for the guest rooms.
    Best about this place is definitely the view over Thomas Beach. You’ll have panoramic views all over the beach and bay. The large veranda offers seating at the balustrade, just like at a bar with high chairs. Just that instead of the barkeeper you have the wide ocean in front of you.
    Going into the room – which are super cutely decorated – you can open the windows to the back, and enjoy the view over the ocean again!
    The fact that there wasn’t an ensuite bathroom isnt big of a deal, because there are only 2 rooms per floor anyways, which means you only share the bath with one other room.
    Ari Homestay is a bit hidden. Basically you have to go through another Homestay up the cliff and walk down the stairs to the beach, to get there.
    Going down is finde, going up can be a little exhausting with the tropical temperatures, but if the lovely elderly lady who works there can do it every single day, i guess most people can handle it for a few days!
    So long story short: We loved our stay! Its a beautiful place with a great location. We felt like we had our private beach, just around the corner from Padang Padang and Uluwatu!

Simply because we want to make things easy for everybody. Not for every local host it’s easy to keep track of bookings and occupancy. That’s why we make it easy and simply offer bookings up on request. It takes 24 hours maximum until your booking gets confirmed – usually we are even quicker.

The standard rooms (if not described differently) are for 2 persons. However you can also book an extra bed for a third person. Once the booking request is made we will adjust the number of persons manually.

It is possible to simply book more than 1 room of the same guesthouse. Simply select your first room, enter the dates and the persons and click on ‘book now’. Furthermore go back to the guesthouse page and do the same again!

Booking Fee: 

  • To be settled after your booking has been confirmed
  • Use your preferred credit card (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX) to guarantee the booking

Remaining open balance: 

  • To be settled upon arrival at the Homestay
  • To be settled in cash using Indonesian Rupiah (IDR)

Paying with credit card is not very common in Indonesia. Apart from hotels and western restaurant cash counts. But don’t worry, ATM machines for cash withdrawal are available all over Bali and most likely you will pass one on the way to your Homestay.
