“Second time just as good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2009

Stayed here for 6 nights in late January '09.First visit was in '07
Still a lovely place with fantastic service.Want to mention how honest the staff was.On two occasions they showed how honest they were
First time a gold necklace of mine had somehow fallen into the wastebasket.They alerted me to this.Second time they emailed me after I had checked out to tell me they had found something I had left
There is much to be be said for a reasonably priced establishment with so much open space in the heart of Ubud
Will return

Will keep this short. Tegal Sari is as good as other reviewers have described. Stayed in the villas (2 of them) both are good, but the larger one was much better than the first one (forgotten the villa names).

The only problem with TS is that that they are usually nearly 100% full - so you can't always get the type of room you are after.

I can't complain about any anything at all experienced on this stay.

Great staff. Great accomodation. Pretty good location in the rice fields and a 10 min walk to the centre of Jln Monkey Forest. The free pick up delivery service can be useful late at night or in the rain.

For $150 US per night it's a 5 star recommendation.

During a 10-day trip bicycling around Bali, we booked one night at the Tegal Sari. We were unable to book a "regular" room, so we agreed to take the Villa Bambu -- a little more expensive than average for our trip, but we wanted to stay at the hotel. Once we found the hotel (the sign is a bit small!), we weren't sure what we had gotten into by the small, understated reception area. But as we walked through the property, saw the rice paddy views, and approached the front of the Villa Bambu, we knew we had lucked out. It's a freestanding villa set among a walled garden with private pool, deck, outdoor mini-kitchen, enclosed bedroom (3 walls of glass with wood floors), huge stone outdoor bathroom, satellite TV, and internet. (Actually, we had some trouble with the wireless connection and the staff devoted themselves to making it work for us.) It was heavenly -- gorgeous decor, total privacy, a real experience that was worth every penny. Especially the next morning when we had breakfast delivered to our outoor eating area (you have to pay for the breakfast but it's only $5!). We should have stayed another night, but that gives us something to look forward to next time. We did not see the interior of any regular rooms, but they looked nice from the outside and the second floor rooms would have fantastic rice paddy views. The regular pool seemed a bit small, but I think visitors probably spend time in Ubud for the crafts and save the serious pool time for the resorts near the coasts.

  • Liked — the villa's design/decor and that fabulous outdoor bath
  • Disliked — a bit of a walk to the heart of town

I recently stayed at Tegal Sari for 8 nights and absolutely LOVED it!! The place is tranquil while being close to all the action and the view over the rice paddies is phenomenal. I was very impressed with the staff who couldn't do enough for us and went above and beyond our expectations. The only fault that I can make is that now they have set the benchmark so high, we fear we will only ever be disappointed by other hotels and their inferior service. I would recommend Tegal Sari to everyone who stays in Ubud (even those who can afford grander establishments) and I would not stay anywhere else in Ubud. Thanks for a fantastic holiday!

We stayed at the Tegal Sari for 4 nights in the garden view rooms. The rooms were clean and in good condition, and the view from our porch was amazing. The staff were effecient and friendly. Definitely fabulous value for money, and a good a break from the hustle of Ubud.

As I was worked for hotels in overseas many years my expections might be higher than others I guess however Tegal sari did not let me down~ One of the staff told us that it started as a really small hotel then it becam bigger and bigger and owned by local Indonesians. and also They do not have any manager within the team which amazed me.

Our family had stayed at Tegal Sari from 30thDec to 2nd Jan at both villas due to the occupancy. The first villa was Sarang Bamboo which is a little smaller than the other but still spacious and so beautiful. It has got a small paddy view from the pool through glass. The little kitchen is near the pool as open plan design and also the huge bathroom. the villa itself is open plan and mixed design as traditional Korean or Japnese and comtemporary. the second day we moved to the Sespti villa on ground floor. It was much bigger without a view(it didn't bother us at all though). It was half open planned and has got huge dining and kitchen area.

We had stayed three different hotels during our stay however the Tegal sari private villa was the best of the best in terms of the value for money, service, location, etc.. and also recommand the Tegal sari Spa esp. Baliness massage! Very Good!

We will definately recommand to others as well~

If there is a way for a hotel to be both simple and luxurious, then Tegal Sari has perfected it. The hotel is a collection of small villas, and each villa has two different rooms, one upstairs and one down. I stayed in two different rooms, and I'd recommend a second floor room, just because the view is even nicer than the ground level rooms.

Tegal Sari is simple in that there's no "fru-fru" - no fussy furniture, no tv or radio. Even the linens are a crisp, clean white. Other things are quite luxurious - the bathrooms are four-star quality, the views are stuning, and the pool (though small) is perfect. The staff also gives 4-star service, and they go out of their way to make sure that you ave everything you could possibly want.

Don't expect to get any "work" done here; there is one Internet computer available for a (nominal fee), and no wireless. But if you're looking for the perfect place to unplug, then this is it. It would also be a wonderful place for a honeymoon - each villa is positioned for maximum privacy, but you're just a short walk (or free ride) from all of the entertainment and dining options that Ubud has to offer.

  • Liked — Peaceful, "unplugged" vibe
  • Disliked — That I couldn't stay longer
