This was our third stay at TS and every time it just seems to get better.
This time our party of ten stayed in some of their recently built Super Deluxe rooms (#29-33) that they were constructing when we were staying in 2011. I was in an upper floor #30.
In my opinion these are even better than the highly sought after rooms #19-24 in that they're more spacious and with newer fixtures and fittings. The bathrooms also seem to be larger and better designed. The main rooms are definitely wider.
The best of these are the upper floor rooms #28,30 and 32 with a more wooden feel (floors and walls) and high vaulted ceilings.
Every thing else about TS has remained unchanged......
The same picture perfect views over the emerald green rice fields to the Monkey Forest are simply stunning.
The staff are always so polite and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble and they make anything happen, all just a phone call away. They even organised pizzas by the pool (from a local pizzeria) with cold bintangs in ice buckets.
The grounds are as lush and tropical as ever. The pool is very inviting, always at a perfect temperature and a lovely cool respite after a long hot day exploring.
Free water bottle refill stations around the property and 'on demand' transfers to anywhere in Ubud central (and pick up also) are a great feature of this hotel.
After a shower of rain they'll even come up to your balcony and mop up all the water.
My only small criticism would be that breakfasts aren't included in the tariff and are quite basic. They're also probably a bit on the small side. The TS banana pancakes (two per serve) however are a good size and very nice.
The breakfasts also tend to be a bit cold by the time you get them delivered to your room.
The better option is to go to the restaurant where the serves seem to be a bit larger and obviously warmer.
The bubur ayam for breakfast (rice chicken porridge) was a real surprise and quite delicious.
All in all a brilliant stay. I have tried other small hotels in Ubud from time to time but in all honesty Tegal Sari hits the spot every time. The sleep quality, great staff, very nice rooms, close proximity to restaurants and shops, excellent value for money, etc.etc. will ensure that TS becomes my very first choice in the future.
