Owner description: 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.

Walking around the palace grounds, at a leisurely stroll, can't possibly take more than 15 minutes. Only a tiny part of the palace is open to public viewing. We wandered in almost by accident, and as there was no paid entrance, looked around, took some pictures, and left. By no means is it a destination to travel to. But it's a fun break from shopping if you happen to be in the neighborhood.

Entrance to the area behind gold doors are not permitted therefore not much to see let alone take photos if there is no evening dance show or ceremony. There was no signboard with explanation or short story of the Palace which would have been appreciated. We were there last Sunday and they had Ngaben (funeral) ceremony, obviously the deceased is related to the royal family. There were so many people who took part in the ceremony and tourists taking photos so the traffic was bad. If you are in Ubud and have a spare time then might as well have a quick look. It is free of charge.

thank you for the advice you give, not all of us have to tell and you should see, we have the privacy that must be guarded, it would be good to stay awake Balinese culture.
and for information about each of these places will be our consideration

Great place to sip on a coffee and enjoy the ambiance of the lily pads and the garden. Best time to visit is in the morning when the skies are clear and there aren't the throngs of people.

A palace turned into an art center. The location is astounding as there are many places to visit around the Puri Saren Palace like the temple on top of the cliff where you can also get a great view. There is the traditional art market in front of the palace. There is a traditional dance performed by local artists and the performance is visually pleasing and well choreographed and the coordination with the music is perfect. So, expect a great audiovisual display that pleases the senses. One of the rare occasions where you can drink in a traditional performance setting! The palace itself is built on the Balinese style and comprises trademark carved stone sculptures amidst ponds replete with lotus flowers. Another place nearby is a temple with a huge banyan tree where you can glimpse a part of children’s activities.
