I stayed in this value hotel with my family for 2 days. Staffs are very friendly. Hotel is clean and also with good view of padi field.
My only concern the shuttle to town is limited. I have to wait for so long at one time as the shuttle was full for the original trip. Driver promised to come back within 30 minutes but in the end back only 90 minutes! He said traffic jam but i don't think it is true.

Friendly, welcoming staff. Wonderful ambiance with Balinese buildings. Yoga classes and delicious organic breakfast in the mornings, looking out over the rice fields. Village of Mas (woodcarving shops) just down the road, supermarkets and warung within walking distance, Rudana Museum diagonally across the road. Big rooms. Well-priced. We got a bemo from Batubulan station that dropped us off right outside Suly Resort. The free shuttle to Ubud at set times of the day worked really well so that we had the best of both worlds - a short trip into the hustle and bustle of Ubud with its restaurants and cultural performances and the peace and quiet of the hotel to come back to and relax in. We thought it was a wonderful place. You have to go there knowing that it is a training hotel and an ashram and not expecting a touristy type of resort. What we didn't like was the smoke from the rubbish being burnt next to the swimming pool in the evenings, that our room smelt very damp and musty (walls were water damaged and looked like termites had been at the wooden skirting boards) and that breakfast was cooked to order and quite a small quantity of food by European standards. What we did like very much were the people, the spiritual feel of the place, the gardens and Balinese style buildings, and the excellent quality of the food served for breakfast. A memorable experience. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms in the new building will be more modern and better quality but do not have the ambiance of...

I travelled to Bali many, many years ago and swore I would never return. In February, my wife and I came to Bali and stayed in a resort just on the outskirts of Ubud for a week. We fell in love with the Balinese people and UBUD and within a matter of weeks we returned, this time staying at Suly.

Attached to the resort is a school for underprivileged kids – Bali Global High School – and the 162 students are in their last 3 years of high school. The children live in dormitories within the school and the income from the resort feeds and educates the kids. The students are being groomed to enter the hospitality industry when they graduate.

The resort runs a volunteer program where travellers can teach English – and any other skills – to the students. I went back to Bali specifically to teach for 2 to 3 weeks. I fell in love with the kids and we became very close in such a short time. They’re just so beautiful. When it came time to leave, there were many tears. An English couple who booked into the resort for 3 days, heard about the volunteer program and ended up staying 3 weeks because they too fell in love with the kids. We started a learn-to-swim program.

Volunteering is a very humbling experience. I hope I enriched the kids’ lives, because they certainly enriched mine. I feel a different person and I hope I am. If you ever have an opportunity to help the underprivileged, seize the day and do it.

The Resort has traditional Balinese bungalows or hotel style rooms. The bungalows are a bit dated but are large, clean and very comfortable. There is a new building (which was still being finished off during my stay) that has hotel style rooms. These rooms would easily fit into a 4 star rating. All rooms have air-con which is a must in Bali. I prefer the bungalows because they have an ambiance.

The resort has two pools and is surrounded by rice paddies. In the evening all you can hear are crickets and frogs. Free yoga is a great way to start the day.

Breakfast is included in the nightly tariff and is great. The lunch/dinner menu is a little limited, but there are excellent restaurants within walking distance. Try the Ubud Deli and Bernadette’s 100 meters up the road - excellent.

The city of Ubud is only 10 minutes away by taxi or motor bike. The resort offers a free shuttle bus, or for the paltry sum of $2.50 you can get them to drive you to Ubud if the shuttle times don’t suit.

But what makes staying at Suly Resort is the children. They do all the work around the beautiful grounds, they help at reception and servicing the rooms. You will even be treated to traditional dancing and music all performed by the students. If they’re not smiling, they’re laughing, and they are incredibly friendly and polite.

It’s a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing holiday and a truly uplifting experience.

This place is like paradise. Old Balinese style buildings in the middle of rice fields. The rooms are incredibly beautiful, the staff is extremely friendly, organic food was delicious and there was free yoga every morning. The best part is that it is run by a foundation that provides education and work to poor Balinese children hence everything you spent there goes back to these beautiful and friendly kids. It was an incredible experience.

This resort has really big old rooms with great big 4 poster bed and antique sideboard etc. If you don't mind the odd mouse in room it was a great place. It is a training hotel for underprivileged teenagers. The kids were all really friendly, very helpful and loved a chat. They offer yoga each morning for donation and mediation in arvo for small cost. The food at the the restaurant is all organic and very nice. It is a about 10 mins from Ubud but they run a shuttle bus in & out. The gardens are very well kept by the kids who start sweeping, weeding etc about 6-30am each morning, two really big swimming pools that over look the rice fields. If you are not young & fit ask for garden view room as rice field view rooms are on 3rd & 4th floors and there is no lift. There is a new section under construction with rooms available I think on 1st & 2nd floors at moment. Breakfast was basic but if you are not a large eater was plenty to start the day, extras could be ordered and paid for if needed. They have drivers available for trips (we used yoman who was really good. It was very different but very Bali. If you are staying for any length of time you can take classes with the kids teaching them whatever you wish to teach.

Room Tip: request ground floor room or 2nd floor if you are not into steps.

I will start by saying the following: We originally booked to stay here for three nights. After eleven nights we are still here and have just booked an additional seven!

We chose the deluxe garden view room, and this is the only room type we have stayed in. I can't comment on the deluxe rice paddy room (although i'm sure they're amazing too)

The three best things about Suly Resort?

1. It is staffed by some of the sweetest people I have ever met. Bali is lucky to have more than it's fair share of nice smiley people, but this place is FULL of them.

2. The beds. I think it's one of the best beds i've ever slept in. Huge superkingsize wooden framed beauties with lovely soft pillows and clean crisp white sheets

3. The new pool is clean and a lovely place to swim (right on the edge of the green rice paddies)

A simple organic breakfast is included in the room, I normally went for the cheese and vegetable omellete with home made bread and baked potatoes. It is served with fresh juice and coffee or tea. There is also a free yoga class every morning for those who fancy it. My wife is a Yoga teacher herself and tells me that some of the hotels instructors are very good.

There were a couple of nice touches. Our package involved a free massage and there were two cold beers waiting for us in the room's fridge. Oh, and the free shuttle to Ubud (four times daily) is very useful. Oh and there is a lovely oynx bathtub with hot running water (both of these things are unusual to find in South East Asia! espeically in affordable places!)

This place is by no means a five star resort, but the staff will bend over backwards to make your stay as nice as possible. We've had an amazing time (18 nights, speaks for itself!)

If you do end up staying at Suly, then make a point of eating in the Bernadette restaurant next door (turn right as you leave the complex and walk for about 1 minute, just past the furniture shop) It's the best place that we've eaten in Ubud. The food is amazing!! Try the slow cooked beef rendang, it's incredible. Bernadette herself is a gracious and friendly host. If I could do a review for her restaurant I would, but it's only been open two months!

Room Tip: First floor, Garden View Deluxe. 102, 104, 106 or 108. The ground floor ones are good too, but you c...
