“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Desa Sanctuary was a fabulous place to stay in Ubud. We are a family of 4, two adults and two kids and spent 3 nights at Desa Sanctuary. It was perfect for our needs. Well priced as so many places around Ubud can be expensive, in a convenient location a perfect blend of being a bit away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to bike to cafe;s and restaurants etc, It was clean, quiet, beautiful pool, lovely rooms and had everything you need. The staff of course were lovely and helpful. A good choice for families and/or couples.

Desa Sanctuary was our first stay on a recent month long trip throughout Bali. The village is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, just a quick bike trip or walk from cafes, restaurants and shopping. I only wish we could have stayed longer! The staff was very warm and inviting, and constantly looking out for our needs. The bungalows were clean and comfortable, with traditional Indonesian-style architecture. We loved swimming in the pool every afternoon!

I loved staying at Desa Sanctuary. What a beautiful little oasis amongst an already gorgeous island. The rooms are pretty, clean, and comfortable. The service the best. We loved meeting the other guests, everyone was so friendly. I can't wait to go back!

I don't want to say too much or I will never get a booking again due to being packed out.
A gorgeous small resort of 6-7 units. nice, quiet and relaxing away from the hubbub off Bali, yet within a 20 minute casual walk to Ubud.
The accommodation was clean and airy and I loved the down stairs bed and both bathrooms.
The staff were on hand to offer advice of where to go and how to get there without being pushy.
Breakfast was delivered daily as part of the cost and other meals could be ordered in from outside venues if you couldn't be bothered moving after a hard day.
The pool area was cosy and intimate and one is not harassed by a thousand screaming children.
Yes I would go back again, in fact I'm hoping to get back there in August this year 2013.

Our stay at Desa Sanctuary was amazing and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful sanctuary in Ubud. The staff (especially Sak Ming!) goes out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of and that everything is to your liking. The houses are beautiful and there is something for everyone! My boyfriend stayed for 3 weeks to do some work and I stayed with him for a week and it was perfect! It's a little out of Ubud but if you get a motorbike or bicycle it's an easy few minute ride. We're already planning our trip back!

We had a great time staying at Desa Sanctuary. The place is clean and quaint. My son really likes hanging out at the pool and the location is not very far from central Ubud. We would recommend staying at Desa Sanctuary.

My wife and I stayed here along with two of her relatives in February. Our week was wonderful. The service at the sanctuary is top notch. They are happy to help accomodate any special needs. The houses are a bit closer together than we thought based on the websites descriptions but they still offer enough privacy. We stayed at the place closest to the pool so when other guests were in the pool we were pretty close to them whether we wanted to be or not. That said, everyone is happy in Ubud and the guests were polite and not rowdy. This would only be a problem if there were young kids in a family making a lot of noise and I think the property might encourage families with certain aged kids to stay elsewhere. We'd return to this place for sure if going back to Ubud.
