“Awesome Place”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

My husband and I stayed at Soulshine and can't say enough good things about it. Fantastic friendly service and the best food we had in Bali! The rooms are comfortable, and the pool and lounge/restaurant areas are lovely with views over the neighboring rice fields. Very peaceful after the hustle and bustle of Ubud. There is a beautiful roof-top yoga studio with a 360 degree view of the gorgeous area. The staff is very helpful and takes care of everything for you. Feels like a home away from home (with better food!).

Room Tip: The sunset suite is beautiful and private.

Soulshine Bali was the ideal location for a yoga retreat! The staff was gracious and always greeted us with the most beautiful, genuine smiles. The Yoga studio was like being in heaven, perched on the third floor overlooking terraced rice patties. The grounds are stunning. The food was divine! Coordination for the retreat was smooth and easy. The staff met our groups needs with grace. Planning group excursions was easy, which as the group leader took a huge weight off of my shoulders. Every expectation was exceeded! I look forward to going back to Soulshine in the near future, it was truly a magical experience.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building are larger with beautiful views. The sunset room is divine!

I had the best stay ever. The service was beyond excellent, everyone is so friendly. Just the right amount of peace and quite. The yoga studio was perfect. This was my first yoga retreat; yoga first thing in the am and then a great buffet breakfast.

Soulshine grounds are stunning, set in the rice paddy fields with the most friendly staff I have encountered. No reason to go to any other restaurants in Ubud, the restaurant they have on site has divine dishes that will satisfy anyone (also caters to those with special dietary needs!)

Definitely consider splurging for the Sunset or Firefly room with the private en-suite bathroom, those rooms are beautiful.

The yoga studio is set on the top floor of the main building and is like nothing you've ever experienced before. The views are stunning from there and you can feel a light breeze passing through ... you feel you're in heaven. They also have high quality yoga equipment on site for use!

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay here as part of 2 weeks in Bali. Soulshine has a tranquil feel about it and its nice to be a little distance (10mins by scooter) from the 'hustle' of Ubud. It is clearly well geared for retreats, as shorter term travellers we had the place almost entirely to ourselves while we were there. At times staff in the kitchen adjacent to the pool were really loud which broke the peacefulness of the place, the beds/pillows were not the most comfortable. The shared toilets were well maintained and not a problem. Food was delicious.

This is a very thoughtful, gorgeous property. Stayed here for a week for a yoga retreat - perfect! The food and staff are amazing. The main house is gorgeous! Only con is the rooms outside of the main house are not as nice and share bathrooms... But overall was an amazing stay

Room Tip: stay inb the main house

My wife and I have stayed at Soulshine twice during yoga retreats, and both times had excellent experiences.

Pros:
- Carla / Wayan / Agung are very attentive to every visitor request, from arranging tours to planning dinner
- The on-site meals are *amazing*
- Close to several "destinations" - Ubud and Mos
- All the rooms are decently-appointed and comfortable
- Has a nice, isolated feel compared to some of the places in Ubud

Cons:
- Water pressure and temperature in the showers are very inconsistent
- Brief power-outages every night
- A bit of a hike from the property to the road

Other:
- On-site scooter rentals are very economical, and you can reach quite a few of the southern Bali attractions on them (given you have good directions)
- The main house rooms are not all equal -- make sure you know what accommodations you're getting (private bath, shared bath, no bath, beds, view, etc)
- Don't get unfiltered water anywhere near your mouth. "Bali Belly" is real and a very miserable experience.
- Going to sleep listening to the Friday night temple performances echoing over the rice paddies is unforgettable

Overall, we'd highly recommend Soulshine to anyone wanting to stay near Ubud. The staff is great, the location is convenient, and the accommodations are very nice.

Room Tip: Firefly and Sunset have private baths, Sound of Sunshine has no bath, and the two 1st floor rooms sh...
