“Great value and relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

I stayed here over New Year with my husband and two young children. We were very pleased with the facilities and service, especially for the price. The hotel has beautiful grounds full of trees, birds, and old Balinese details. My kids enjoyed watching the wood carvers at work in the hotel gallery. The pool is small but big enough to cool off and play a bit, and it never seemed crowded while we were there. The grounds were big enough that our kids had fun exploring them, but small enough that we didn't worry if they wandered off for a while. Our room was large and bright, with a nice little table on the patio where we ate some of our meals. Like others, we found the bathroom less than ideal, but it certainly didn't ruin the trip. It did get quite buggy--nothing like getting bit in your nether regions while using the toilet in the middle of the night--but it wasn't a big deal for us. The restaurant was hit and miss, with some meals being quite good and others just okay. The prices are very reasonable, though. And a few times we ordered food from a restaurant in Ubud and had it delivered, with the hotel helpfully placing the order for us and giving the restaurant directions.

What really made it a good experience for us was that great staff. They were extremely helpful with everything we needed, and we took advantage of the free shuttle into town. I think it was the time of year, but we did find a lot of traffic getting back to the hotel in the afternoon. Several times, we had arranged for the hotel car to pick us up in town, only to be left waiting for 20-30 minutes. As we didn't have an international cell phone, that was a problem--but I gather that is not common year round. At any rate, the staff learned our children's names, and the fact that it is a small hotel gave it a warm, familial feeling. We were a bit sad to leave and would definitely go back.

I am currently staying at room 201-202. Planned to stay from 24-26 Dec 2013. Travelling with my dad and kids. It is a big disappointment, since the room is not as expected. I have to make several calls as if I am responsible for this place. Firstly, in room 202 : no light bulb in the TV room and the TV just buzzing, can't play any channels. Second, in room 201 : bugs, the kind who seeks lights are everywhere since the bathroom is open-air. Covering the curtain was no use. Initially the bugs filled the bath tub. Then there's a "gap"on top of the bathroom door that connect to the bed area. This "gap" let bugs enter the bed and TV area. Asked the staff to cover the gap but then turned the lights out from the bath room. So the next thing, bugs covered the bathroom glass door, trying to get into the well lit room. Another calls and it took more than 20 minutes to clear the room with the help of staffs. If I am not thinking about the time and my dad who is unwell, I would have moved right away. Moreover, both rooms smells not good as if they haven't been use for sometime. The management should fix the problem. Luckily the staffs are helpful, otherwise no value staying in this hotel. Definitely won't come again.

Staying at Taman Harum was how we started our Bali tour. The hotel is pretty far from the airport but the drive was comfortable. The chauffeur was talking to us about various places of interest en-route all along. He even offered to take us to the Batik factory though we declined owing to fatigue. Upon reaching the hotel we were offered welcome drinks which was quite a relief given the heat at the time of the day. Check in was hassle-free and we were shown upto our room. The bellhop showed us around.

Accommodation (The Suite) - The room was big, spacious, airy and had sunlight coming in from everywhere. On either sides of the bed room we had a sitting area. One had a table and four chairs over looking the rice fields (also gave us a private access to the swimming pool) and the other (right after the main entrance) a couch and a television with a water body behind. This one had a small kitchenette attached to it. The bathroom was partly open air and the bath tub was out in the open. Hot and cold water was available 24/7. The bed room had a four posture bed with a good mattress and duvet. Fresh and clean. Most hotels have a different picture of the rooms on the website but not this one. It was just as we saw it. You live with nature here. Every now and then we'd hear a lizard or see ants, frogs and birds (none of them in the bed room) but it didn't really spoil our stay or the mood. They're pretty unintrusive.

Food & Beverage - Didn't try much. Had 2 breakfasts but they were well made. They even serve breakfast in the room FOC. Options are limited to American/Continental/Indonesian. We prefer eggs, toast and juice and hence didn't choose the Indonesian option.The scrambled eggs were delicious and bread toasted just right. Prepared fresh and served hot. Our favorite Green tea was available all along - day or night. The restaurant closes at 10 pm and nothing would be available thereon till day light. One evening after-dinner when we wanted to have green tea and the restaurant was closed (they wound up a a little early) they even gave us a kettle and tea bags in our room so we could make it ourselves.

Services - Do not expect to be treated like a king here but that is not to say that their service has anything lacking or negative in it. Its the laid-back atmosphere that grips the tourists and has even taken to the staff. They were definitely polite and courteous but lacking in endurance. (This I say from my own - on-going - experience as a hotelier). Foreign exchange closes at roughly 7 pm so stash some Rupiah if you wish you wish to eat outside. There is a super market right across the street and a currency changer too. They organize a shuttle into Ubud town (about 15 mins away) anytime of the day. The last pick up from town is I think at 9 or 10 pm.

All in all a good stay. I'd gladly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try the Suite. Book it in advance as there is only 1 available.

The Taman Harum is about 15 mins out of Ubud, in the Mas Village. This is no issue as you can get free rides into and out of Ubud with the hotel. There is also a convenience store across the road for emergency essentials (e.g icecream). The hotel itself is relatively sprawling with beautiful statues, fountains and gardens. The staff were lovely. We ate at the hotel restaurant a lot as it was delicious and cheap. The rooms were clean, but nothing amazingly fancy. Don't expect luxury, but expect nice rooms, great pool area and surrounds. Loved our time here.

Booked this hotel via Booking.com. Took my entire family here after few nights stay in Pecatu to be nearer to Ubud and North Bali attractions.

Taman Harum certainly did not disappoint. Our requests made via the online reservation were noted and arranged neatly. Rooms were ready when we checked in and the service could not be more friendly & punctual.

Unfortunately I had to cut short my visit to go back to Jakarta in early morning, leaving my family behind, and a room vacant. When my family requested to void the bill for the vacant room for the subsequent night, the staffs were helpful to reach the online booking website and amend the reservation for us.

I have to also say that my family really love the charming Balinese style of this establishment. They find it really refreshing compared to the modern-style hotels.

Value for money-wise, we couldn't be more pleased.

I took the Honeymoon package at Taman Harum Cottages (on August 2013). The price is reasonable with a lot of activities (incl. one day tour, watching the traditional dance, free pick up all day/night within Ubud Area, free massage, free learning Balinese traditional music, candle light dinner on the balcony etc).

The room was beautiful and spacious. The crafted furniture were gorgeous. very Balinese. And the breakfast were superb!

Room Tip: My bathroom was the outdoor type of bathroom, so make sure the door is fully closed during the night...
