Best part of our week-long trip to Bali! We stayed here in December 2013; my girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights, and both regret not making this the entire base of our 7-day trip. Hands down one of the best choice you can make, especially if you're staying in Ubud.
-The rooms (villas) are the best part...antique and exotic, with a feel like you're either Balinese royalty or simply at home, living in the middle of the jungle (highly recommend the Elora and Orin house!!). Also very clean and extremely comfortable (for those worried that it's too exotic or un-resort like). I'll note that this isn't a five-star hotel like St Regis, but the authentic/chic feel and presentation of both the room and resort MORE than compensate for marble-tiled rooms and upscale living (why would you go to Bali for that anyways?). To note, we finished our Bali trip at the 5-star Ayana resort in Nusa Dua, but found the Bambu Indah to still blow that place away!
-Stunning views of rice paddies and hills beyond from the resort itself, and a short hike away from the Ayung River. Ubud center is a 10-15-minute drive away (about $7 USD cab ride).
-Great staff. Very friendly and knowledgeable; both the manager Sutka and his warm staff ensured our every need was taken care of promptly and effectively. They even helped me after I'd gotten Bali Belly early in the trip--gave me some (free) medicine and remedies that quickly helped to dissolve the issue.
-Tasteful, healthy food. Breakfast always came with an excellent selection of fresh fruit and juice, along with a well prepared dish that was cooked to order off the menu. Lunch and dinner had an array of alacarte options, all of which were reasonably priced and served in a beautiful open-air restaurant.
Recommend doing some research on your room/house before reserving, as different houses offer different experiences (some are larger and more fancy, others smaller and more homey). The Elora/Orin House was awesome, and I've heard amazing things about Afrika House as well. Some--like ours--have outdoor (secluded) showers where you can shower under the stars!
Loved every bit of the Bambu Indah..if/when we return to Bali, we will DEFINITELY be staying here again!
