We stayed at Tepi Sawah for two nights this march. I had mixed reviews on trip advisor but we had a good stay.

The rooms are very spacious and not far from the pool and restaurant area.

The gardens and pool areas are a highlight.

We had room service one night that was not anything special and the drinks by the pool were slightly overpriced compared to other places we stayed in Bali

Staff were friendly and the shuttle was always available within ten minutes of being requested

Have just spent four glorious nights at Bebek and didn't want to leave. For the money, it was excellent value. Beautiful grounds with the unique rice field setting, Staff so friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble. Room was spotless, large, cool and comfortable. The restaurant is really great and very famous, You must try the duck. The Spa was relaxing with excellent treatments for very reasonable prices.

The breakfast - ignore what others say. It is excellent. Thankfully it is not a buffet with 200 people eating much more than they should and everyone diving into the one platter of fruit. At Bebek there are four menus to chose from and each menu has several options/courses within it. Freshly made fruit juice superb.

It is not a luxury hotel but for the price it is unreasonable to expect it.

Shuttle service worked well and it is nice to have a bit distance from Ubud central, you might even observe some Balinese going about their daily business.

Room Tip: Nice views from rooms upstairs.

Sorry isn’t the hardest word to say, even if Elton John thinks so. The driver didn’t pick you up at the airport? Sorry. The air conditioning isn’t sufficient to cool the room? Sorry. Tarp fell into the bathroom? Sorry. And so it went. So why am I giving this hotel a good rating? The answer is the good things outweighed the issues we encountered. When I write a review, my main question is: would I go back? And the answer to that question guides my review. The answer here is ‘yes’, and here is why.

Bebek Tepi Sawah has a lovely location, just far enough from the main streets of Ubud to provide a quiet atmosphere but close enough to make access easy. The rice fields within the compound, along with a myriad of shrines and vegetation, add to the rural feel of the Villas. The fields are not just for show as the rice is harvested and used. The art galley on the premises was another perk, containing pieces that surpassed the formal galleries in town, especially the overblown Carlos Blanco museum. After a day birding, hiking, or visiting historical sites, we looked forward to a cooling swim and a quiet evening on our balcony.

The food was good if not outstanding; however, the shuttle service at the Villas was excellent so if we craved variety, we simply booked the shuttle. All drivers were courteous, safe, and helpful. Eating at the resort did provide great amusement though as it is a favourite of locals, although I’m not certain if they come for the food or the ambience. Picture taking was as popular as eating. I never realized so many people could adopt so many poses. These folks watch far too much tv.

So, as mentioned, Bebek Tepi Sawah has a nice location and atmosphere, and enough other pluses to warrant a positive rating.

Room Tip: We liked the balcony room because of the view over the rice fields.

We spent 3 nights of our honeymoon in the Ubud villa. It is unbelievable how beautiful the landscape was. Everywhere in the hotel, you can see plants beautifully integrated within the hotel. There's lush greenery everywhere.

The suite has a semi-outdoor bathroom, with a rustic Balinese charm with all the wooden carvings which Bali is so famous for. The only downside to this outdoor, surrounded-by-greenery concept was that a giant wasp kept lurking in the bathroom for 2 days.

We were able to check out the Perliatan villa, the most expensive villa of the hotel. But at USD160++, it is absolutely worth booking this villa. Other then the usual room facilities, it has its own yard with an outdoor stone Jacuzzi, a day bed, and outdoor table and chairs, etc. And it is literally just 3 meters from one of the 2 pools in the hotel. The only drawback is that it is on the 1st floor, so you won't get to enjoy the padi field view from your room.

Nobody really mentioned, but Bebek Tepi Sawah is really famous for 2 other things. Its Bebek (which means 'duck' in Balinese), and its fantastic art gallery. Ubud is famous for its crispy duck, and although the "Bebek Begil" (which means 'Dirty Ducks') is more famous, the ducks that the hotel serve is just as good, if not better. You can literally eat the entire duck, including the bones, as it has been fried to such perfection.

The art gallery at the entrance of the hotel is filled with unusual finds. Apparently the owner is also an avid arts and transportation collector. He has numerous limited edition Harleys, a US jeep used in Afghanistan, and a plane, if I don't remember wrongly. You can see pictures of Suharto (the past Indonesian president) visiting the gallery at least 3 times during this lifetime. The art finds are just exotic. There was a mural which was 3 by 5 metres (or longer) and yet with intricate details of the Balinese life. It's almost like a "Where's Wally" mural, except on a much larger scale and with a Balinese twist. Pity, that not many people visited the gallery. Throughout our 1.5 hours there, we were the only ones inside the few hundred sqm gallery. Most people probably thought it was too boring! But you really miss out if you stayed there and never visited the gallery.

By the way, the breakfast is really good. The juices are ultra-fresh and super yummy.

***Outside the hotel***
The hotel is 10-15min drive from town, but the transport is readily available (just call 10min in advance and the driver and car will be ready for you). Even the drivers were so friendly and they acted as our part-time tour guides too.

When in Ubud, the food that you must, Must, MUST try are:
- Crispy duck @ Bebek Begil (right beside the largest Cocomart)
- Cafe Wayan @ Monkey Forest Road (a large garden with 'pavillions')
- Ibu Rai @ Monkey Forest Road (tasty and cheap fine dining)
- Ibu Oka near Moneky Forest (OMG it's so good it is crowded whole day!)
- Naughty Nuri's Pork Ribs nearer to Ayung River

Activities:
- White Water Rafting, Bukit Cilli Rafting @ Telagawaga River
- Majestic view of the ocean at Uluwatu (cliff/mountain)
- Padi farms layered at side of mountains at Tegalalang (it is along the way of other attractions, though Jatiwaluh is much larger and nicer)
- Climb Mt Batur (or if you ain't fit, just ride a car up!)
- Have some kopi luwak (weasel coffee) at an organic farm on a mountain
- Spa at Putri Ayu (no gorgeous padi-field-views here, but with one of the best prices with nice private rooms and showers. It is just a few shops away from Naughty Nuri's Pork Ribs so you plan them together!)

Room Tip: Request for rooms on the 2nd level to wake up to the beautiful view of the padi fields in the mornings. 2nd level is the highest...

I visited Bali for 9 nights in January and spent 6 of them at the Bebek Tepi Saweh and it was amazing. The grounds are so beautiful!, I had 2 different rooms and my friend who also stayed had one room so I was able to see 3 out of the 4 room choices. The rooms are spacious and the bathtubs are so big and luxurious. The 2 pools are so beautiful and everything about the grounds makes you feel so peaceful as you take in all the beauty.
The full breakfast every morning was absolutely delicious and there are so many choices.
