I was a little apprehensive with the location of the hotel, being a touch away from the centre of Ubud, but this proved to be a masterstroke. The hotel sits just by the monkey forest and around a 20/25 minute walk to Ubud's markets and array of bars and holistic shops.
I have to say that above all, the service at the Saren Indah was truly exceptional. Each and every member of staff, from the knowledgeable reception staff to the sweet and polite waitresses/waiters at the bar and restaurant were a joy to be around. They made every effort to make my stay relaxing and enjoyable, so much so that my girlfriend and I opted to return to the hotel for dinner more often than dining in Ubud centre. The restaurant didn't let down with their surprising range of Balinese cuisine, lovingly cooked (which they were slightly too eager to serve with speed).
Surrounding the grounds were serene rice paddies, with dragonflies, butterflies and swooping swallows setting the scene. In the evening, the chorus of frogs croaking and crickets chirping sent you to sleep, without being too intrusive.
Our room was spacious and cleaned a couple of times a day with a nice sitting area outside looking out to the fields and little stream running through the grounds.
I can't speak highly enough of the Saren Indah, a beautiful hotel with exceptional staff.
