Bali Bubble House

If you ever go to Bali, there are multiple options for you to try out a Bubble House. First, you must decide whether you would like a jungle or beachside experience. The Jungle Bubble Houses are located in Ubud and surrounding areas. We chose to go to Uluwatu, to the beachside Bubble Houses. Uluwatu is located in southwest Bali, with lush jungle on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other. We booked our experience on Airbnb under ‘Bubble Hotel Bali Nunggalan Room 1’. 

They have different types of Bubbles, so you can decide if you want to be in the first row to the ocean or in one of the others. You can also choose to have a campfire, a telescope, outdoor candles, etc. You can even purchase a drone photoshoot to take some amazing photos (for a high cost). As you would expect, all extra services have an additional cost. Twenty-four hours before check-in, they send a menu for dinner and breakfast and you choose what you like. 

We arrived at the check-in area around 3 p.m. and the staff told us it would be too hot to go to the Bubble at that time. Instead, we rented a scooter and went to see the Uluwatu Temple, which is 5 minutes away. We came back around 5 p.m. and then we got the directions on how to get down to the Bubble house. 

A staff member will bring it to you to the Bubble. You should bring some comfortable shoes for the downhill walk and a lot of water. You will have to go downhill for approximately 20 minutes and then you will arrive at the beach. This downhill trip was HOOOOT! When you are on the beach, you have to walk left for another 20 minutes and then you’ll see the bubbles. 

A staff member was waiting for us here and checked us into our private Bubble. This scenery was unbelievable! Even though there were guests in the other Bubble Houses, it felt like we were the only ones there and the beach was completely empty. There is a reefy bottom, so if you go for a swim, watch your step. 

We chose a bubble on the front row that came with the most fantastic view for sunset. When the sun went down, the staff came and lit the campfire and all the small outdoor candles. Then you could sit in silence listening to the jungle and the ocean, watching the sunset turn into a sky full of stars. The inside of the Bubble was decorated with flowers and you could keep watching the Stars right from your bed. This was nothing but magical!! – serious honeymoon material! 

Waking up in the Bubble was still a bit surreal! After rising out of bed, I hit the outdoor shower located behind the Bubble. Nothing beats taking a shower out in nature! We had smoothie bowls served for breakfast and then a fresh swim in the ocean before heading back up the hill. Please do not wait until 12 p.m. to check out because the walk up is VERY hot too. Don’t forget to bring water. 

The price was approximately $125 for one night and then you can decide what kind of extras you would like. I would definitely call this a five-star experience!

Good to know:

There is electricity inside the Bubble. 

Bath towels, shampoo and shower gel are provided. 

You can rent a scooter at check-in and visit the Uluwatu Temple. 

You can check in between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. I would highly recommend 5 p.m. because the Bubble is extremely hot during the day, so you can not use it before nighttime anyway. 

Bring sunscreen.

You can leave your heavy luggage at the check-in desk and only bring what you need in the Bubble. 

Bring comfortable shoes and water. 

Reefy bottom, so be careful.

Keep the place nice and clean. 

In my opinion, I would not bring children. 

Coldwater in the shower, so do it when the sun is out.

Enjoy an absolutely amazing experience!
