Tegalalang is quintessential Indonesia. It is exactly what many Westerners picture out this beautiful country to be with endless rice paddies and charming rural bungalows. It cannot be stressed enough how important rice is to the history and culture of Tegalalang. Rice terraces–layers of rice cascading one over the other–are not only beautiful and Instagrammable but also functional. Terraces make use of an irrigation system called subak which allows the water to flow naturally on to the next layer below it, lessening the load for many rice farmers to fetch water for its water-dependent rice stalks. Go to Tegalalang’s rice terraces in the morning to avoid the drove of tourists trying to take that breathtaking photo. And when you’re done, relax back in bed. Have a little breakfast and plan for the rest of the day. Speaking of beds, here are a couple of bed options in Tegalalang, Indonesia. Try some of Indonesia’s famous charming accommodations. Start off with this list of where to stay in Tegalalang, Indonesia.

1. Amazing homestay in the lap of nature (from USD 31)

Imagine staying in the middle of a ricefield, allowing you to commune fully with nature. When the rice stalks are ready for harvest, the stalks sway and dance with the wind, and when they’re seedlings, they look just as picturesque being surrounded by water. This is what this homestay offers their guests. Not only is the homestay in the middle of a ricefield, but it is also just kilometers away from the famous Ceking Rice Terraces, a view which has made its way around many Instagram accounts. This homestay has a beautifully curated Balinese feel with a teakwood carving by the entrance and bohemian, handmade-looking clay tiles covering its open-air bathroom. The villa also has an all-wood theme with a charming four-poster bed. Villas also have their own mini-pool so you can relax in privacy.
