The Tegal Sari is surely a slice of heaven. We drove up from Legian as a family of 4 with teen age twin daughters. Along with us were our best friends from the SF Bay area who met us in Bali. The minute we walked in we were offered cool drinks as we took care of registration formalities. We had room 23 a superior deluxe, while our friends got room 18 the wooden room. Between our rooms was the lovely stone swimming pool.
We were escorted to our room by a senior member of staff who explained all the amenities in the room. The safe, the huge bathtub, and the rain shower shower. They are very ecologically inclined and you had the option of not changing the sheets daily as it was up to you. There are also fresh water dispensers all over the property where you can fill up water bottles with hot, cold, or regular water.
We soon realized we needed one more bed and it was installed within minutes of our request. The first time I went to the front office to request pool towels I was addressed by my name, which I thought was very nice indeed.
My friends from California were not used to the heat and asked for a fan and it was put in the room while were at the pool. The view across the rice fields from their balcony was not to be believed especially at sunset. The price of food and drinks was about 40% lower than at the beach, and the quality was top notch.
The grounds are kept in pristine shape and the workers pruning and cutting the plants, flowers, trees and grass all throughout the day.
The hotel provides luxurious private shuttles into town at any time of the day with only a 15 minute request time. Once they were 5 minutes late and brought our another car to drive us into town. When you call from town you are also picked up within 15 minutes.
It was such a pity we only stayed two nights as it could easily have been a week. The hotel is situated out in the rice fields, right next to the Monkey Forest yet their were no insects or mosquitoes at all. The rooms are scented with citronella to keep them away.
This is truly a wonderful boutique hotel. One that is known by word of mouth among discerning travellers. I feel privileged to have stayed there with my family, and we are already planning a return in April. This time we will go directly from the airport to Ubud as it is so beautiful and clean. With out a doubt one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed in here in SE Asia. With the low fares on Air Asia, and the ease of life at Tegal Sari we will be taking our island holidays in Bali, rather than our home Thailand. Between staying at Legian at Casa Padma Suites and then up in Ubud at the Tegal Sari it was a wonderful 8 night 9 day stay we had on Bali. Even the weather cooperated with blue skies and beautiful cumulus clouds each and every day. Thank you to the Tegal Sari management and all the staff.
