The front desk staff was friendly enough, but the breakfasts were atrocious in terms of hygiene. We understand it is a tropical setting and perhaps other guests want as natural a setting as possible when they dine, but when flies are everywhere with nothing being done to stop this problem, then a line must be drawn. Furthermore, the bathroom was small and mildew was in the shower.

Suly Resort, Yoga and Spa would like to express our gratitude for taking the time to post your constructive comments at trip advisory. Yes our place is a ten minute away from the center which makes Suly so peaceful from the noise of the commercial business district. Free shuttle car at designated hour and place, plus the availability of motorcycle and vehicles for rent, hopefully will compensate for the ten minute drive to the center. The presence of mildew in the shower and flies in the dining area will immediately be addressed by our department heads. We are very happy about the things you shared with us; rest assured they won’t be there anymore when you stay again at Suly Resort.

Really nice experience, tipical balinese hotel, wonderful environment, very well maintained, nice two swimming pool just in front of rice fields.we were so happy just seeing this amazing project,they are helping poor children from villages by giving them a good education.
Most of the staff are the children who always give you smile and the hope that life can be better.
We have a great time here we highly recommend you to visit them.
Ten minutes by motorbike to ubud center, you can hire bike from hotel.
Good location, in a calmy area, an awesome surroundings, peacefull place.
Thank you very much to all the team and Benedict Lego Director sales and marketing thank you for making us feel like home.

My partner and I stayed at Suly for five days in one of the larger garden rooms. Before you book this hotel you must be aware that the main function of the resort is to act as a hospitality training centre for underprivilidged children. Kids aged between 15-18 live at Suly for up to three years whilst they learn about the hospitality industry. They also learn English and Balinese culture.

Because of this the service may not always be precise, but it is always delivered with a smile and unbounded enthusiasm. There are kids everywhere just a little over 150 attend the school and they always seem to be working. It appears that the kids run the place as I rarely saw an adult supervising.

Our room was furnished in Balinese style, a extra large bed with mosquito netting. The room was large enough but a little dark. The air conditioner worked well and we had a large balcony where we could relax and take in the view and watch the industrious students go about their tasks. The bathroom was pretty ordinary, old and in different stages of dissrepair, but that didn't worry us at all as we didn't expect five star.

The meals were pretty basic, but once again we had to remember where we were and that this was all about training. We attended the cultural night which was great. The students practice for most of the week and the clatter of drums and other instruments at night and on occasion early in the morning is a little annoying. A special diiner is laid out for guest who sit on the floor to watch the show. Enthusiasm is the main ingredient and the kids have a ball singing and dancing. Their evervesance is catchy and everyone at some stage was cajoled to go on stage and dance. All in all a great evening.

Shuttles take you into Ubud several times a day but as the cab fare is only $4 that isn't a problem. If you remember the purpose of the resort is that of a training establishment for underprivilidged kids and accept a few minor hiccups you will have a great time. I would have no hesitation in staying at Suly Resort again.

I ve stayed for 2 nights in sully resort. The place is lovely. As others had said the hotel is ran by teens that try they best to answer all your questions. If you want to complain about something or simple ask something a little bit different, like your breakfast to be served before 7 am, it tend to be harder, but with a little bit of patience they get it for you. It's true that the hotel is being refurbished but i've always had a peaceful sleep. They stop the works at 6 pm and start them around 8/9 am. Regarding the hotel you are in the middle of rice fields in a rustic place, a perfect location to relax, read or enjoy the nature sounds. The swimming pool is very nice, the spa is also very good and you should try the indonesian massage. If you want to relax this is the place. Regarding the rooms they are big, clean and decorated in a modern way. The bed is very comfortable and the pillow was the best of my trip. The bathroom is also very clean. The breakfast is also good. The fruit with yogurt is delicious!
the only negative aspect is that the hotel is faraway from ubud center and if in the evening you want to grab a beer in the town you must pay attention to the time. At 2 am there are no taxis or motobike to comeback!

You are right sir when you say Suly Resort is a GOOD PEACEFUL SPOT! And we can not have that peaceful spot if we will allow our guest to stay even up to wee hours of the morning. But now you can get your beer from our bar, which will close at 10 pm, before you go back to your room. Looking forward to see you one day and drink cold beer at 2 am when I am the manager on night duty!

This resort, just outside of Ubud, was a great find. Our newly renovated room on the top floor a four-storey building overlooked rice fields and two swimming pools. The workers were all supervised students, learning the hospitality trades. Food was prepared well and served in an attractive way. One of the two restaurants serves only organic food, some of which is grown on site. The atmosphere is quiet and gentle and there is a spiritual vibe that is very relaxing. The students always greeted us with smiles and they were a delight. The guest rooms had every amenity that we could wish for. Service was efficient, including in-house laundry and complimentary taxis ready to take us into Ubud. There are opportunities at this ashram for volunteers to teach English and any aspect of hotel management. Recommended for families.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms facing the rice fields.

It was supposed to be a two night stay, but my wife and I had the pleasure of staying for over a week. During the course of our stay we met couples who frequently returned to Suly on their trips to Ubud and people who were yet again extending their stay at the resort. In the beginning, we were curious about why people were so enchanted by Suly. However, by the end of our trip, my wife and I were among those who fell in love with Suly, having deferred or canceled parts of our trip elsewhere in Bali because we could not leave! Suly was serene, the food delicious and the guests and staff so friendly! It was the Bali experience we were hoping for and did enjoy at Suly.

The accommodations were great: the room (in the new construction) was large, modern and spotless. I could sleep in the bed all day, but there are so many place around Suly to lounge around lazily all day. You could also walk into Ubud; it's only a 20 minute leisurely walk (though the taxi drivers in town will exaggerate the distance to induce you to take the cab and to pay a higher fare). Suly also has free shuttles to/from Ubud, which we found too packed and hectic so we appreciated a little distance from town center. For us, the best part of Ubud was Suly so we mostly just stayed at the resort and once in a while wandered into town to shop or to watch a show (though Suly also puts on shows during Wednesday and during Suly's dining club event throughout the day on Sunday).

As other guests have commented, Suly runs an education program for over 100 underprivileged children. The kids are wonderful and it's endearing to watch them practice English (which will be the best English you will hear in any resort in Bali), among the other languages that they learn there, and eagerly study in groups. We wound up being on a first name basis with several of these students, and we look forward to seeing them again when we return to Suly.

My experience in Suly had been so wonderful and homey, I couldn't exactly say bye bye to the place and Ubud as I initially planned out my trip for two days; two days turned into five days, and even that didn't seem long enough.
A room that I stayed in was very well kept and clean, and comfortable.
Yoga classes every morning was wonderful; the space it was held was open studio with fresh morning breeze, peaceful rice field views and sunrise.
Lounging around pools seemed like a perfect activity to do after delicious, simple and healthy meal from restaurants.
All the staffs especially the students, I ADORE! They were very helpful, genuinely pleasant and warm, which was big PLUS point for me.
Will I go back there? Absolutely!
