“Perfection :)”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

It was our first visit to Bali and I'm so glad we stayed here. Had chosen this place as a budget stay in Ubud but it far exceeded our expectations. Swasti is a natural, lovely, earthy and a really peaceful place. It is not artificial or pretentious in any way which is the best thing about it. We stayed in a traditional bungalow for 3 nights. It is absolutely perfect with an outdoor patio and and outdoor semi covered shower and bath area! The bungalow is non AC and the entire setup of this place is in nature which is great for non finicky travellers who do not mind the insects and the creepycrawlies. But honestly it was not a problem at all. The people there Ratna, Ketut are extremely sweet. The staff are very nice and friendly. The food is also really very good.
We also tried the spa which was quite nice. Their attention to detail and personal interest in making sure their guests are happy is a great plus. Definitely recommend this place to stay at Ubud. It is a stone's throw away from the monkey forest and a 20 min walk away from Ubud palace where you should catch an evening dance performance. Our stay at Swasti has contributed a great deal to my travel to Bali :)

Room Tip: Stayed at bungalow Gita which is good for honeymooners!

I truly miss this place! It was such a wonderful place to stay and I would highly recommend it. The service is wonderful. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and unique, with so many personal touches. The restaurant is beautiful and offers a wide menu with delicious food. The location is within walking distance to the Monkey Forest. It's probably best to drive into main Ubud, but they can hire you a driver easily and it's not expensive. Their massages were wonderful and inexpensive. They arranged our travel by car and boat to our next location, and it was perfect. Overall it was great value for the money and I highly recommend staying here.

Our first stop in Indonesia was Bali and we decided to make Ubud, and more specifically the Swasti, our base of operations. We were not diasappointed.

From our authentic Bali hut (we stayed in the 'Dharma') to the dining room, the food, the helpful staff, the garden and of course the pool, it was a perfect welcome to Bali.

The town centre is easily accessible by foot thru the sacred monkey forest or by a side road if you want to avoid the cheeky primates.

If you go to Ubud, Swasti Eco Cottages is a great place to stay.

My family and I stayed here for 6 days. The food was great and the cottage lovely with all the important things like good shower and comfortable bed. The Balinese dinner dance was interesting and fun. Staff is warm friendly and helpful. Good value and truly peaceful place.

My husband and I stayed in one of the traditional rooms, Ketut, during our 4 day stay in Ubud. The room was spacious with a queen bed and a loft, lots of natural light, with a private deck and garden, very clean and had an awesome outdoor shower. We went in October so heat was not an issue, the room did not have AC just a fan, which was fine. The property has beautiful landscapes, the pool is very relaxing and usually quiet. The restaurant is great, amazing food and service, we ate there most of the time and even took a cooking class. The staff was very helful, they assisted us with tours, confirmed reservations and called cabs for us. Location is also perfect, just outside of town, but close enough to walk into town. The monkey forest is just a few blocks down with restaurants and shops along the way. If you need to relax after a day of exploring/shopping definatly visit the spa, we had a couples massage and facials followed by tea and a foot massage. We will for sure stay here on our next visit!

Perfectly situated - a short walk through Monkey Forest. Had to take a taxi to the market though as was a fair way but that was only $5 each way. Easy to catch one at the Monkey Forest car park. Situated in a tranquil lovely town with small restaurants along the road into town. - the copper kettle was our favourite. It was a very quiet time of year which was nice as the town was quiet. Could go to the Leke Laka along the road into town to see Balinese dancing at night.
The hotel is beautiful with lovely gardens and beautiful old style Balinese cottages. The restaurant was lovely but the menu a bit limited. Breakfast was good, not huge but enough. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The spa is excellent - a range of different types of massages on offer - in a separate cottage in the grounds and it was very tranquil. The pool is a bit small but adequate and it was salt water which was great - it also seems that the water was cooler than chlorine. Easy to arrange tours and taxis from the hotel through reception. We had 3 teenagers and they complained about the limited WiFi. We didn't have air conditioner in our rooms which made sleeping difficult in the beginning but one became used to it and I preferred it - one feels more connected to the environment. We had family rooms called Nyoman and Ketut - very nice rooms, very clean. The only negative was it was on the boundary and the neighbour watches TV at 9.30pm every night pretty loudly. Would recommend it - the only place we have had access to recycling and each room had a large container of water to cut out the use of plastic bottles. Yah! Very quiet (if you discount the TV) and beautiful - would stay there again. No hotel taxi into town. For a health conscious and environmentally concerned family/couple - this is the place.

Room Tip: Ketut and Nyoman - family rooms - no air con
