“Relaxing with style”
Reviewed 1 August 2009

I have read so many good things about Uma Ubud and my experience really did not fail to meet the high expectation set for this place. We have a good bargain as a local and stayed there for 2 nights. The property is just as I imagined, tranquil and relaxing with a touch of style, although a bit on an eclectic side i.e. neither traditional nor minimalist style. But it is well forgiving as the level of service provided is truly high standard, we are locals usually encounter a different treatment on a fancy resort in Bali but not that we experienced this time. We booked on Terrace rooms, overlooking the beautiful Sayan terrace in a bit distant. The bathroom is huge and nice, with good amenities from COMO Shambala products. Trust me, the soap smells very nice that you definitely cannot resist bring it home. The pool seems nice however, it was raining most of the time during our stay hence we missed the experience. 'Kemiri' restaurant for breakfast is really another good thing about this hotel, I was eager to go there not only for the food but also to spend my time reading accompanied by a nice view over the property. Breakfast is a la carte style, quality and taste is at a high standard with fancy presentation and adequate portion as well. Location is a bit distant from the Ubud town but it wont be a problem during day time as an every 2 hours shuttle is always ready to drop and pick you up in front of the famous 'Ibu Oka' roasted pork restaurant. Also, 'Warung Nuri' is only crossing the road for you to enjoy their famous martini and BBQ Ribs. Overall a fantastic experience which I really want to repeat soon. Only hicks up was during check in time, asked to wait for nearly 45 minutes for the room to be ready although it has been well over 2.30 pm. Highly recommended.

Impressive place, very clean, luxury facilities (sport room, huge pool). Rooms are just amazing. Hotel locatd in the middle of the jungle and paddy fields (there is a complimentary 1 hour walk around the hotel every morning, very interesting).

Downsides : Restaurant and room service are a bit expensive (and not always worth it), and you have to walk 20 mn to reach the city centre (but you may easily take a cab for a few dollars).

A good place to stay though (since there are plenty of other not so expensive restaurants in Ubud).

The Uma is set about a 10minute car journey or a half-hour walk away from the centre of Ubud, but that is not to say that the location is a downside to this beautiful, holistic hotel. In fact when you see the views of the Tjampuan Valley from its yoga pavilion, or the iridescent paddy fields from your room, you'll realise that not being in the centre of town is a definite plus-point.
We had originally booked into a Garden Room, but we decided to downgrade ourselves to a Terrace Room to take full advantage of these views, and we were not disappointed. The Garden Rooms are bigger and their outdoor bathroom is breath-taking, but what you compromise in terms of space, you make up for with the scenery in the Terrace Room. And we liked the intimacy of the Terrace Room more. Apparently, room 20 is the one to go for, but this isn't first-hand information as this room was booked when we got there. Of course, if you have the mullah, just go for the Pool Suite.
In terms of the other amenities, the infinity pool is lovely and warm and it's a whole new experience swimming whilst surrounded by so many trees and bird-calls. The staff are highly professional and do all they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Due to the on-site Shambala Spa, the Uma is very in tune with its chakras, and the food at the restaurant (surrounded by a Koi-carp pond!) is all organic and there are daily activities such as morning walks through the paddy fields or daily yoga for free. There is a also a shuttle service every 2 hours from 9-5 into the heart of Ubud and back. The world-famous Mosaic restaurant is a 5min walk away and the Neka Art Gallery next door.
We liked the regard for Balinese tradition that was present throughout the Uma, from its obvious architectural influences to the 3 onsite shrines, where if you wake up early enough you can witness quiet morning prayers. The wife was a little averse to the abundance of wildlife (though I loved it), so if you're not a creepy-crawly fan than maybe you should reconsider. Actually saying that, if you're not a big fan of the insects and frogs, you really shouldn't be coming to Ubud (set in a rainforest) at all! We really enjoyed our stay at the Uma Ubud, and would definitely recommend it to our friends, but just a small note to say that there are some truly stunning hotels in Ubud so do your research well as places like the Alila or Ibah are just as beautiful. Of course, if yoga and an amazing spa are essential aspects of your stay, then look no further.

We spent 3 nights on our honeymoon at this idyllic hotel, just outside of Central Ubud in Sanggigyan/Kedewatan. The hotel nestles on the jungle hillside and the individual chalets and suites have beautiful rooms with wood carvings - most also have an inside/outside shower and a fantastic balcony overlooking the valley.

The staff were superb and most days I started the morning with a swim, followed by an amazing breakfast down in the restaurant. The restaurant is surrounded by trees, a huge carp pond and is beautifully designed (as are all the architecural aspects of the Uma) The open air bar was also very convivial in the evenings (with a few cute lizards running up the walls dealing with the mosquitoes!)

Because we were on honeymoon the hotel had filled the bath with flower petals and gave us a complimnetary bottle of Bali rose wine whihc was a nice welcome! There was also complimntary yoga class at 4pm everyday in the most fantastic studio overlooking the jungle valley.

We ate in the restaurant on the last night and the food (and service) were both fantastic. Lombok Lobster and Thai Beef Salads being the highlight!

There is a regular shuttle drop/return into central Ubuid from the hotel during the day, and the drivers will (for a fee) drop you anywhere else within the local environs &/or after dark into Central Ubud.

The main thing that we liked about this hotel (apart from the fantastically friendly staff) was the stillness and chilled atmosphere. it is very quiet and you can really realy unwind and relax. Every morning there is a compllimentary walking tour at 8am and of course the aforementioned yoga. If you do crave a bit more 'action' and 'buzz' then there is a fab waoreng (traditional Balinese restaurant) just over the road called 'Naught Nauri's' that does great spare ribs & sates cooked on a bbq outside ... or just head into Central Ubud. The Spa treatments looked a little expensive but all the bathroom products were superb AND the facilities looked excellent (the yoga studio was attached to the spa!)

Overall I'd highly recommend this hotel for a casual visit or honeymoon - perfect place to chill out and forget the cares of the world!

We stayed for four nights in the Uma Suite. We were extremely happy with our choice. It was our second trip to Ubud and this was a very good location. The hotel is set back from a busy road, but is very tranquil and because the resort is set down the hill it is quiet. Walking into the reception from the road one enters a calming retreat. The rooms are amongst the best we've ever had anywhere in the world. They are beautifully decorated in whites and greys, with rattan furniture and four poster beds with nets. Our suite was very large with a dining and sitting area as well as covered terrace which was large enough to hide away and read when it rained. Breakfasts were wonderful with delicious mixed juices, bircher muesli and nicely cooked main courses. It is all a la carte, which is a treat. We ate in the restaurant one evening and thought it was very good, but the rest of the time we ate out. Indus is an easy walk and Naughty Nuris is across the road. We didn't eat there, but the margaritas were excellent - we wouldn't have been able to walk out if we had drunk more than one! It is walking distance from the centre of Ubud but the pavements are terrible so although we walked up one evening we took a taxi back.

I liked the spa very much, and also the afternoon yoga class. They also do a guided morning walk which is a lovely way to start the day. They took us around the padi fields near the hotel and it was really pretty. The guide was also very informative and told us a lot about local culture. The pool is nice for swimming lengths and on most days it was relatively quiet even though the hotel seemed always to be full.

We would definitely go back.

It's a very quiet hotel, with beautiful rooms, great food and a really great pool...the staffs were friendly and helpful,
Rooms tastefully decorated..each has a patio,
I stayed at the Terrace Room and later upgraded to the Garden Room, but both rooms were just as equally charming...Garden Room is bigger and has a really nice (more like posh) bathroom (see pictures)..
You'll be surrounded by lush greenies and it's really peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle (unlike Kuta and Legian)..
Don't expect loud/nightlife coz it gets really quiet at night..
Surrounding areas? quite secluded, a lota art shops around though.. you need a transport to get to places...
breakfast is awesome, with the view of large waterfall/pond..
the fitness/ spa is heavenly..
very romantic ambience..
perfect for business/honeymoon/family trip

Had a wonderfull three nights here and would recommend this to travellers to Ubud. We stayed with our two year old son, and despite being more of a romantic boutique type hotel, it worked out fine for us. The bungalow we had was spacious with a terrace overlooking the river valley. It was completely quiet. Even though the hotel is on a main street, and outside the center of Ubud, the noise from the traffic out front was inaudible.

The meals at the restaurant were great. The pool was very relaxing and the staff extremely helpful.
