Ulun Ubud Resort & Spa
Ranked #78 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 June 2009

We decided to stay a couple of nights in Ulun Ubud Resort after reading all the good reviews on tripadvisor. Some of our expecations were met, but there were also some drawbacks. The major plus of staying in this resort is the stunning jungle-setting of the resort; the views from the great balcony's and the gorgeous swimming-pool are really amazing!! We also liked the fact that this resort is situated in a more quite part of Ubud. The resort gives you the opportunity to stay in a relaxed environment, and - at the same time - to enjoy the 'hassle' of Ubud with the easy shuttle-service to the 'city-centre'. However, when we stayed at this resort, it was not possible to order a lunch, dinner or drink during the day. This was slighly unconfortable, since this implicated that we had to leave the resort / to go to the centre (with the shuttle) for lunch/dinner. Surprisinly, after a few days, we found out that the ones who stayed on a package-basis in Ulun Ubud (that is, these persons were traveling around by an organised all-inclusive tour) got lunch and dinner in the resort. The manager of the resort told us that the restaurant was not open for 'ordinary' hotel guests like us... (I was quite pissed of about this..). Taking this into consideration, and the facts that the rooms were not really clean and the high price-level of the rooms, I would not stay here again. During our stay in Bali, we have stayed in other places where we got more quality for certainly less money!

A truly wonderful experience.The traditional thatched roof bungalows built into the side of a river bank was a highlight of our trip.Very friendly staff,food was good,a great shuttle service and views of the valley in complete harmony with nature,although our 2 teenagers disliked the silence.At night on the balcony our daughter described it as being in jurrassic park,with all sorts of bugs and jungle noises at work.We recommend this place for the fit and healthy,a perfect honeymoon.

We went to Ulun Ubud for our honeymoon. We stayed at the villa next to the swimming pool and it was as if we were having it all to ourselves. It was exactly how we wanted to spend our honeymoon, quiet and peaceful..and surrounded by trees. If you are looking for a night life, not here. We spent our time there by going to their cultural performances and food hunting which was amazing! The sense of culture in Ulun Ubud is still strong compared to othe places eg. Kuta. We only stayed there for 3 nights and moved to Jimbaran after that. How we regretted moving out of Ulun Ubud!!! I don't know how to say this but we really loved Ulun Ubud and is definitely going to go there again. But mind you, there wasn't any TV in the rooms. Luckily we brought our DVDs and laptop, but that wasn't a major problem. If you want to spend quality time with your partner, this is the place. It is really very peaceful.. The place is original with Balinese antiques and we really love it there! No internet there. Who needs them when you are in this place?

And oh, we have breakfast at the balcony and we loved the peaceful feeling. The view from the balcony is something which you don't see all the time. It is usually quite misty and the morning and the air was really refreshing. Breakfast was so-so, toast or sometimes fried rice was tasteless. However, it wasn't our main concern. Our mission was to explore the local food too, anyway.

The man who manages this hotel was really nice. We emailed him asking about the hotel and he always replies to you personally. Staffs were really polite and helpful. Not many villas (10?) there so I guess it is good so they can concentrate more on their guests needs.

The only downside about this place is the stairs are really high! So you have to really remind yourself if you left anything before you get out of the room.
Definitely going there again. Totally love it.

In june we stayed three nights at the ulun ubud. a smal hotel with all seprate bungalows lying on a hill with a really magnificent view ont he green rivervalley it is laid at. With a large veranda youheard nothing else than silence. And it is a charming hotel: not the buzz of a 5star hotel, and yet it has everything, including pool and massage/spa service.
And a very friendly staff that took all time for a chat etc. And the shuttle service to Ubud-city is also good: at any time we could ask for it! Beacause of this all we rateit with a 8,5. We will beback some day!
