“Great Value and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2009

Spent two weeks traveling around Bali. This was the hotel we stayed at for the "Bali Prices", costing us under $50/night! That alone was great, but the service and location were also good. The staff is very friendly, and readily available. The location is only a 5 minute walk to the Monkey Sanctuary, and there are also some good restaurants right next door to the hotel. The city center of Ubud is probably a 20min walk, but the hotel offers a pretty reliable free shuttle every hour.
The rooms are so-so, with not a great bathroom setup...but hard to complain when you are paying so little for the stay. We also recieved a pretty good in room 30min massage for free.
Overall, hotel is an incredible value.

I am a professional photographer and I travel all over Southeast Asia, Europe, Central America, etc., but I always end up at the Saren Indah Hotel in Ubud to relax for two or three weeks each year. The rooms are excellent and very clean and you won't find a hotel any where that that has friendlier staff. The Saren Indah Hotel is quiet and peaceful but located within a five minute walk to the noise and excitement of Ubud. The beautiful gardens are attended to daily, and in the middle of the gardens is a relaxing place to eat and swim. The hotel has wifi so it easy to stay in touch with the rest of world - or not. Until I am too old to travel I will go back to the Saren Indah Hotel each and every year.

We spent eight days at Saren Indah in Sept.The room was quite large and very well kept.The bathroom was spotless,cleaned and fresh towels twice a day.Breakfast was cooked to order so was always fresh.Had dinner one night (included in the price) was very tasty and well presented.
The manager is one of the best we`ve came across.we arrived around 11.30 pm.and he was still there to welcome us.He also arranged a floral display for my wife`s birthday.The staff from the room attendants to the waiter`s and front desk staff were all of a very high standard.
One problem was that the stairs could get a bit slippery when wet.
The location is very quiet and peacefull yet only a short walk into Ubud markets via the monkey forrest.
To sum up I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.

We arrived at the Saren Indah after a very long day (2 1/2 hours just to get out of the airport!) and with some concerns as we had booked online with no other reviews except those on TripAdvisor. Our group consisted of myself, 2 other friends and a 15 year old son of 1 of my friends. We had another friend arrive later and share a room for the last 5 days. Our full stay was 7 days - we were in Ubud for a wedding.

What a find!!! Nothing was too much trouble. Lau, Nyuman, Kadek and the rest of the team at the hotel were friendly, unfailingly helpful and treated us like family. The hotel was scrupulously clean, the rooms were wonderful (we loved our outside terrace overlooking the garden and paddy fields beyond), the dining area, pool and reception were delightful and the location (on the edge of the Monkey Forest) was ideal for us.

We moved on for our 4 days down to Legian and we were seriously let down after the care we had received at Saren Indah. I would recommend Saren Indah to EVERYONE who wants a glimpse of the more traditional Bali, complete with fantastic service and a location to die for!

We were at the Saren Indah for 3 nights recently and it is hard to fault this little place. Situated on a little lane along the Monkey Forest Sanctuary, with a 10 minute walk to the centre of Ubud. The hotel has an hourly shuttle service as well, pick up and drop off points flexible. The hotel has a list of tours and excursions-highly recommended and comes with own personal driver. Our only regret is the short length of our stay.

We stayed at the Saren Indah for three days during our honeymoon in July.

Upon arriving, we were welcomed with a refreshing cold cinnamon tea and wet towel to wash face / hands - very nice after being in the car for 4 hours. Check-in was fine, service friendly. It was quite busy during this time, so there were no second floor rooms available, but if possible request this due to noise from rooms above on the first floor.

Our room on the main floor was spotless, with a nice patio, great bed with mosquito netting, beautiful bathroom. TV and DVD player (you can rent DVD's for less than $1) were a nice treat, and there was fresh fruit waiting for us as well. We had a mini-bar in the room - I'm sure you can request this if not in the room.

Plenty of nice towels, bathroom supplies, and bottled water offered. Also, turndown service at night a nice touch :)

The breakfast included was fine, nothing special, but sufficient, and better than the other places we stayed as you had a choice of entrees, unlimited fruit, toast, and juice/coffee/tea. Great setting for the meals as well by the pool.

The grounds are very nicely maintained - beautiful place all round.

As for the location, we thought it was perfect. It's away from the downtown (5 minute walk through monkeyforest), quiet, and feels more like the "true" Ubud. Although there is a free shuttle downtown, we never took it. The poster that said you would be forced to eat at the hotel for dinner is totally off - the shuttle runs late, and it's literally a 5 minute walk to Monkey Forest Road where there are plenty of restaurants. At first we were a little weary walking through the Moneky Forest sanctuary at night, but soon realized it is perfectly safe, and the monkeys are sleeping at night. Bring a flashlight / headlamp if you opt to walk.

The only complaints I have were that the people above us wore their high-heeled shoes in the room and you could hear their feet as they stomped around. Also, there was a light on the stairwell all night that shone into the room - maybe they could switch to motion-sensored lights at night?

All in all, good value for Ubud.

I wish to add my compliments to the staff at Saren Indah hotel, friendly, very helpful, made our stay a delight. The gardens are beautifully kept, the rooms spotless. So relaxing. just a short stroll from Monkey Forest/Ubud, we were given extra tickets when we advised we were staying at Saren Indah. On one night the hotel set up candle light dinner around the pool, and Balinese children danced, what a delight loved the "Rabbit dance" . Our room was upstairs and views of the rice paddies were so relaxing. I can highly recommend this hotel, so relaxing, we will certainly be returning
