Villa Sabandari
Ranked #6 of 638 Ubud B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 September 2012

Villa Sabandari is peace on earth. After the hustle and bustle of Kuta, we ended our trip in Ubud. All good things have to come to an end and we were so lucky to finish off staying here. It was very peaceful and quite, and you were continually treated with the warmest service from all the staff. The villa is situated a small walk out of town, but don't let this bother you because the hotel drivers are always more than happy to drop you off anywhere in town and pick you up at your convenience - just pass the hotel card to your waiter at the restaurant and the drivers will pick you up after your meal.
Breakfast was served either on your private veranda or another spot of your choice (we always ate on the veranda because of the exceptional view over rice fields and the pool).
Tea was served in the evening, in the same manner as breakfast.
The villa is a perfect place to relax after a hard days hike, or wake up early to watch the sun rise and plan the eventful day ahead.
I would recommend this villa to anyone looking to have a romantic getaway.
I almost forgot - you get a free 15 minute massage on arrival or at a time of your choosing and the therapist was amazing, this was definitely a special treat and one I did not expect.

Villa Sabandari is an absolute sanctuary, away from the noise and bustle of central Ubud. A little piece of heaven. The attention to detail is incredible and every new thing we discovered there was like a lovely little surprise gift. From the free afternoon tea served by the pool (delicious home made iced tea, quiche and cake!), to the amazing soap in the bathroom fragranced with a unique blend of essential oils, to the pristine gardens and rice paddy view. The rooms were extremely comfortable. The peace and quiet and tranquility made this a blissful and relaxing place to stay. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay here for a few nights. There is a lot of privacy even though there are just a few rooms on the property. Seems like guests respect that of one another. Vista of the rice paddies is relaxing and lovely. Rooms are nice, spacious.

This was a great place you could feel like relaxing in without having to talk to anyone.

Location is great.

Breakfast was mediocre.

We would definitely return.

We were welcomed with a tropical fruit smoothie in a gorgeous reception area. A car and driver was able to take us to town when we wished and a cell numbers was provided for pick up any time we liked. Accept the Good dining recommendations. I liked the outdoor rain shower and especially the scented shampoos and shower gels that they had specially designed from a place In the city. Flowers on the bed, on the night stand, in the bathroom...nice touches, apparently thanks to the owner's thoughtful daughter. We really enjoyed the 2 course breakfast, which were uniquely and specially laid out for us each morning. The afternoon tea was delightful and we were surprised with a home made sweet and savory item each day. If you spend more than three nights there you are able to get a car And driver for 10 hours, but you need to book it a day ahead. Serene an tranquil setting above a rice filled with an endless pool overlooking it. Amazing!

You will not be disappointed staying at Villa Sanbandari, it is small with only 6 rooms which is great no throngs of people like large resorts. We had a private breakfast on our balcony every morning which was a different surprise every day. Our room was the Barong room upstairs had views over the rice paddie fields and infinity pool. The villas are in brand new condition very clean and well maintained we were told they are 3 years old and everything seems to weather fast in the tropics. They provide you with an information sheet and booklet showing local restaurants and walks which we tried and found to be great. You are also provided with a shuttle service around Ubud which we found to be more stretched out than what I thought so it is very handy to get the restaurant you are dining at to call the villa and a friendly staff driver will pick up up and this can be up to 10 30 at night good for sore feet after a day of walking. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful nothing is a bother.

Truly this is a "secret garden". This was our second stay in Villa Sabandari; we were not disappointed only surprised that it took us 2 years to return to this little paradise. Inside the Villa you have complete privacy, peace, quiet & exceptional care by those serving... step out side, and there is all of Ubud to enjoy! We met people from all over the world, all there for a restful retreat, plus fun & exploration of Bali's Ubud. It is a magical vacation!!!

Room Tip: The rooms all have their own charm... We love the one with outdoor bath tub!

This resort is exactly what I like, small, beautiful and peaceful. The rooms are very comfortable, the pool area is lovely, with plenty of lounges and drinks service, and they provide a driver to drop you off and pick you up in town, so you don't have to deal with the often pesky taxi drivers. If you're looking to party in Bali, don't go here, but if you are looking to relax, read a good book by the pool, and maybe have a few delicious cocktails, then this is definitely where you want to be.

Room Tip: They all seemed good to me ... definitely no bad rooms.
