“Paradise at a budget”
Reviewed 4 June 2011

My First time staying with Tegal Sari, but i had a preview when i was visiting Ubud previously. But unable to book due to the popular demand. So i was quite lucky this time.

We managed to book a wooden house!
It came with a queen size bed and we requested 1 extra bed.
It also came with a bathtub, shower, toilet, sofa for viewing.. except a TV..
but who needs it anyway...

Had a wonderful stay with tegal sari
wonderful and attentive service.
nice pool, beautiful view from our wooden house.
their new restaurant is also very nice and the serving portion and price is good as well.
Tried their massage, so so but no complain.
Free wireless is available at the cafe above the reception area but only with a consume.

Truly a paradise on a budget.

Room Tip: Try to email them way ahead.

We had amazing 4 nights in Villa Sesapi at the Tegal Sari. These villa's definitely have the "WOW" factor and for anyone planning a special occasion this is a must if visiting Ubud.
The villa was spotless, the beds very comfy and the view of the rice paddies made a pleasant viewing each day.
We had the top section of this villa, so no pool access but able to use the hotels pool if need be. There is so much to do in Ubud and because of the central position of Tegal Sari we were out and about everyday and did not use the pool but walked past it everyday and though a little small would serve its purpose.
The multi task staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble.
On checking out we had Ketuk finalizing the paperwork and also driving us to Legian. This trip was very informative with Ketuk answering all our questions and telling us about bali life.
Will definitely be back to Bali and Ubud again and will stay at the Tegal Sari again. Excellent

I emailed to book this hotel but they toook FOREVER to reply. Then they said they had 1 room available. I reconfirmed very promptly, but there was no reply! This prompted me to call them one day later. To my horror, they have passed the room on to others. Am totally dissapointed with their services and lackadaisical attitude. No matter how good the hotel is, they should not just want to try and make a quick buck. They should prioritise those who replied to them promptly or at least, revert with an answer. Till today, I have yet to receive any email from them at all!!!

Four of us had three days at Tegal Sari before heading to Seminyak. Booked after reading TA and could not have been more pleased with our choice. The initial booking made many months ago, was seamless and emails replied to promptly and with detailed explanations. We paid extra for an airport pick up and that was also perfectly executed. Wi, our driver was knowledgeable and was able to give us a terrific insight to the sights between Denpasar and Ubud.
Check in flawless and the short walk to our Villas (26 & 27) gave an opportunity to learn about rice production.
The rooms were breathtakingly brilliant. Son requested they be able to look over rice paddys and they sure could. They had the entire top floor – huge expanse. Two balconies, big bathroom and a bed that was almost as big as a footy field.
Ours (27) was equally salubrious. At ground level. Huge bedroom, adjacent outdoor bathroom – bath, lavatory, twin basins, huge shower.
At one end of our “compound” sat an elevated day bed enclosure that contained twin day beds. In another corner a raised gazebo with table, chairs, fridge, two burner cook top. The piece de resistance though was the pool. Quite large by hotel (villa) standards – just the thing for Bali’s heat.
The overall design of the two villas we were staying in was just superb.
Staff could not have been more helpful. Anything we wanted was there without any fuss. Each daily clean had the place sparkling like a new pin.
One of the main reasons for choosing TS was location and we all agreed that you couldn’t get better. They have two entrances and the one on Monkey Forest Rd was the one we used most. About 100 metre walk and there we were right in the thick of things.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention their restaurant (at the back entrance). Called Semesta and whist we only had breakfast there, the food was just terrific.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tegal Sari in a super deluxe room. The room was kept immaculately clean, the views and tranquility were superb and the staff were always friendly and very helpful. The pool was very clean and we enjoyed a drink brought to the pool side while the kids swam in the pool. Staying at Tegal Sari was so relaxing and peaceful. The location was close enough to walk to shops, restaurants and Ubud markets etc and the free shuttle service provides drop off and pick up if you dont feel like walking. This was our first trip to Bali and we will stay here again next time we visit Bali.

My second time staying at Tegal Sari, was lucky enough to be able to booked the wooden room last minute.
Was very happy with the hotel & the room. Everything was wonderful as expected. The room is clean & big. The only thing they can improve is to install a shower curtain to prevent guest making a mess in the toilet after shower.
The new cafe/restuarant is good too. We also get to view the villa when they were doing some maintenance work. Love the villa & hope I'll get to stay in the villa in the future.
There are many good hotels in Ubud, many probably surpass the Tegal Sari in the rating. But with such good price & good service, I think Tegal Sari will remain excellent in many years to come.

My husband and I stayed in a Super Deluxe (upstairs) room for four nights in May 2011. This was our third time to Tegal Sari and it was like coming home. The service was very good and the room as we remembered (always get room 22). The massage by the room was fantastic and very cheap (85,000rp for one hour). We always love the rice paddy view from the terrace and it was great to see all the activity as they were starting to harvest their crop. They are building six new rooms so I would be concerned that the pool is not big enough as it is - last time we stayed we could not get a pool lounge (and not due to hogs, there were actual people on them), so I think the pool situation will get worse. Would we stay again? Maybe but not next time, I think we would be looking for a change but I would still highly recommend as it is excellent value for money (although no free breakfast now, so maybe not the bargain it was). Also note there is only wifi in the restaurant - sad but we missed not having it in our room (it is free if you have a drink)

Room Tip: Upstair super deluxe for the best views
