Puri Saren Agung is the place where Ubud's long tradition of home stays all began, more than 80 years ago, when Bali first started to attract bohemian artists from around the world. Renting one of five traditional stone bungalows in the sumptuous royal courtyard is still quite an experience, and every night the palace comes alive with the sound of Gamelan music as Balinese dances are performed just across the wall from Puri Saren Agung.

If in Ubud, it is hard to miss the Puri Saren Palace because it is situated right on the main street through Ubud. I would recommend checking it out for its Balinese architecture, well-preserved. The front area is open to the public.

I love the ancient temples in Bali and Ubud. This is no exception and should be visited to complete your trip to Ubud. you can combine it with other interests especially the museums or the monkey forest.

This was well worth a quick visit to see the incredible craftsman working on restoring the palace to its former glory.

The main reason for average rating was the site was under renovations. Some areas of the temple were accessible and were quite nice. Maybe the temple will be worth a visit once all the renovations/construction are finished.

We hired a private taxi to take us to some of the highlights of Bali. Called at the Royal Palace in Ubud - a very busy town with vehicles/bikes parked along the narrow streets, making it difficult to negotiate through. The buildings are interesting and...More

The grounds of the palace are unremarkable in and of themselves. There are a few buildings, but none are particularly interesting, and there's nothing else to really recommend the site in and of itself. However, they also host nightly dance and musical performances, and these...More

Puri Saren Palace is the official royal residence of the royal family of Ubud who still live there. It's free to wander around and look at the interesting carvings and figures. As usual with many local buildings it lacks a sense of grandeur partly perhaps...More

Response from MWandAW | Reviewed this property |
Opening hours are 8.00 am to 7.00 pm.
I am told that the entry is free in the Ubud Palace. I am also told that the cultural shows are ticketed. Is there a different entry point for the shows?
