Balinese Food & Cooking Class StudioRumah Desa means house in the village. Our house is located really in a tranquil village with very charming nature at the surrounding. Here you can experience the authentic Balinese life in the village and explore the garden with its various tropical plants. Rumah Desa was constructed with following Balinese building regulation, the so called "asta kosala kosali". It is very important to build house by following this regulation to keep the harmonious relation among nature, human beings and god.Rumah Desa was built to empower and develop the village through our programs. All activities we organize are aimed to develop our village and encourage the young generation in developing their capability. To support the society in the village we also use the houses of villagers for your overnight.Our concept is to create job opportunity for the villagers in order to increase their life standard, and to train young generation for a better capability. We expect that our people in Bali are ready to face the globalism, especially in the tourism business. Rumah Desa organizes some programs which are held in the village of Baru, in the Marga district of Tabanan, Bali. We invite you to experience the unique and authentic, culture, art, wisdom, rites and philosophy of Bali through our programs. And it is about one hour drive from International airport or 30 minutes from Ubud.
