Reviewed 6 June 2014

Recently stayed at the Ananda Cottages. Fantastic Property, The staff was incredible from the front desk Kadek to Mandi. Truly fabulous. Cottages are quaint and the sounds coming from the Rice Fields are incredible. It was an experience that I will truly remember. Yoga retreat was held here and the site couldn't have been more perfect. I would recommend Ananda to someone who wants a retreat in a Magical Paradise.

Room Tip: Upstairs room 34 Great location

The hotel has great rooms and cottages. Little rice fields are everywhere in the hotel grounds, the paths wind around them, and they are illuminated by torches at night.
The breackfast buffet is wonderful and offers everything from fruits, rice dishes to western toast or muesli.
The staff was friendly and attentive.
Unfortunatly the pool was not very clean, when we visited, but that may be an exception.
A little way up the road one finds restaurants and a great art museum.
The hotel is a bit too far from the town centre to walk on foot, but taxi drivers wait for guests in front of the hotel.
One can spend wonderfull relaxing days at this beautifull hotel.

We were in a group of 11regular practitioners of yoga seeking a different experience to the studio environment at home and we were not surprised at the greenery surrounding the several villas within the compound or the padifields close bye.For city dwellers this is complete escape from the noise and bustle of everyday life and waking up for the early morning yoga session starting at 6.00am till 8.00 am is a major discipline but is amply rewarded by the wholesome morning breeze and the glimmer of light from the rising sun and the life begins again a new.Of course there are several properties in Ubud that are simply breathless to behold and stay for just a while to immerse oneself in the totality of their uniqueness and beauty..the Ananda cottages are just as good and comfortable and especially a favourites among yoga/yoginis as I noticed several others come and go and easily identifiable by their yoga bags which could have just been purchased in shops past the bridge.My wish is simply for management to provide Wifi facility in rooms as it is more convenient rather than having to go and sit on the hard benches at reception or restaurant in order to find out what is happening at home or in the world. Otherwise food and breakfast is good so too the staff and espesially Gusti who was our guide during the walking tour.Cheers and will come again in 2015!

Stayed here with a group of yoga practitioners and the cottage has a yoga pavilion overlooking the paddy fields. Pretty nice view when the sun rises and sets. You get bird sounds,ducks and insects as you practice. Lush greens and a swimming pool amidst the gardens. Rooms were spacious with a large dressing area and cupboards in the toilet area. The only set back was that the air conditioning was not cool. Ubud market is walkable,perhaps a good 40 minute brisk walk..but you won't feel the distance because there are ample shops to look at along the way. You could bargain for a taxi ride for 40,000 IDR to the market. Staff was accommodating and friendly. Breakfast buffet was almost the same daily. The nearest supermarket,Bintang was just a 5min walk..and you could also find a basic hardcore gym there,with a daily fee of 20,000 IDR.

My husband and I, recently stayed at ananda cottages for a couple of weeks. We had a room on the second level overlooking a lush green garden area. This place has a very laid back vibe, the staff is very helpful and breakfast is a reasonable buffet. It's a good 25 minute walk to the centre of Ubud. We didn't have a tv in our room and the wifi signal was very weak most of the time. Our room was cleaned daily and very efficiently. It's a lovely place to stay if you are looking for serenity and peace.

Fantastic this is my second time there and I travelled on my own felt very safe. It is a beautiful and serene place with lots of walks a shops nearby. The restaurant has lovely food. Drinks are very reasonable. Staff are very friendly always saying Hello. This is more traditional style accomodation. Beautiful rooms which are always cleaned to perfection. Pools are amazing. Great value

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have private balconies.

It's the little things that make you fall in love with this place. The room (Nos 24) had a beautiful tropical outlook with crisp bedlinen with a mosquito net hanging from the ceiling and was cleaned as if by magic every time we left the room. It was very dark inside the room (more light needed) and the large bathroom had a bath with a shower attachment which meant the floor was flooded regularly on use, but somehow early room irritations melted away in the authentic beauty of the setting and the real deal of getting an Indonesian family run business where they seemed to care about their guests.
The nature of the hotel however changed dramatically depending on who was staying - whether it was the yogic 'leave your shoes at the restaurant door, pass the soy milk' brigade, or the European let's light another three cigarettes before we finish breakfast crowd. Please can you ban smoking in the restaurant? :)
We were on a Blissful Bali yoga adventure and enjoyed our stay. It is good value for money and although a little way out of town, it was never any trouble to get a taxi into town (c$3AUD one way)
We used the Spa at Bliss (the sister hotel) and the massages were good, the setting lovely, go else where for a pedicure.
The grounds were well tended to, with flowers appearing on statues and our early morning yoga sessions were to the delightful sounds of every path being swept.
Wifi was only available at the restaurant and reception but this was free of charge
Loved the place I would go back

Room Tip: Hard to say as each cottage appears to be slightly different, some are quite a walk from reception...
