Reviewed 21 December 2013

Well this place is ok, is a hotel what students working to pay the college,
they are very nice always happy and very helpful.

breakfast ok, since the chef who was there in the days we was there wasn't too happy

restaurant is good just if you really like Indonesia food (what isn't our case)

very good to organize motorbike and information

we choice this place to fell loose of the rush, and was perfect for this.

well we knew that but we stay anyway, the shower and bath room is terrible and smell bad

We were looking forward to our stay at Suly but were disappointed. The location is a good 45 min dangerous dirty and loud walk to the centre of Ubud (pavements are dreadful). There is free shuttle that drops you at inconvenient times but then getting back is the problem so you must take a taxi at night which adds up due to there only being two local restaurants. We stayed 3 nights as we had excursions booked however would have moved if this wasn't so. Overall the hotel is OK, breakfast was a good size and the pool looked nice. However the rooms didn't feel clean, I had ants in my bed which wasn't at all nice. The drinks and food very very overpriced in comparison to other places we went to. The hotel is run by children learning to study hospitality, however we found there was far too many of them in the hotel and it went from friendly to borderline creepy! Also there was a mess up with the booking we were overcharged and there was never an adult on hand to deal with the confusion which was quite irritating. We still are not sure whether we will get our money back. I wouldn't recommend this hotel but I would the the restaurants either side and the lovely deli next door.

Room Tip: one on the second floor, if you are on ground floor people can see into your rooms, we had curtains...

The staff was extremely friendly. Tried their best to make us feel at home. The food at the resort was excellent.

Suly resort is a great opportunity for students with less fortunate backgrounds to study and learn about hospitality. Most of them are volunteers and are very helpful.

The breakfast is amazing and there is lots of choice. They make an on the spot omelet to your liking. There is lots of fruit, savoury and continental choice. Best of all. It's free!

The garden is lush and well taken care of. The students do an amazing job keeping the rooms tidy with complementary mineral water and chocolate.

The driver they hired for us was amazing and spoke at least 4 languages. Including Spanish and English. He was our guide for a week and took us into his house for us to try all kinds of Balinese food. We where there on a special occasion during Galungan and allowed us to take part in the tempel ceremony. We learned alot about the culture and saw it up close.

Back to Suly. The pool has warm water but it is refreshing. We had the best view overseeing lush rice fields. The hotel is not in the middle of the rush of Ubud so it's quite and relaxed. Yet it is close enough to go to the centre and have a look at the sights and markets.

They offer a free shuttle service that goes on certain times. But is very handy to get around.

They also offer room service. They have a menu in the rooms that have food from Bernadette's that is next door. We haven't actually tried this since we usually ate at the Hotel.

You can participate in Yoga and Spa treatments at the resort. We didn't feel pressured by the staff at all to participate in things that we didn't feel like doing. They respected our privacy but gave us good advice on sights around the neighbourhood.

It's a great initiative to give students a chance to make a good life for themselves and get education. And it return they offer their time to help out the Hotel.

The price is really good especially for what they offer.

Room Tip: If you go on one of the higher floors you have a great view over the rice fields.

Suly Resort and Spa is located in what I like to call the cultural capital of Bali - Ubud. All the pictures don't do justice to the vast expanse of land over which Suly has been built. We were shocked to find a restaurant, cafe, spa, temple and two swimming pools all within in the hotel premises. They also have a cultural centre which hosts several activities. Unfortunately, we spent our 2 days exploring Bali to the fullest, with us returning to the hotel just for a good night's sleep.

Ubud is pleasantly close to Bali's famous Ibu Oka, well known for it's delicious Babi Guling, and Ubud Market as well.

Dinner and cocktails at the hotel didn't quite tickle our taste buds, but a choice of continental or Indonesian breakfast at the hotel definitely left us stuffed and satisfied.

The only inconvenience we faced during our stay at Suly was that WiFi was only available in the public areas, and not in the rooms or by the poolside.

The hotel staff were extremely helpful, and don't be surprised to find young boys helping you cart your bags your room and back.

And last but not the least, the in-hotel spa was delightfully relaxing! Go for the foot reflexology, which includes a shoulder, back and face massage as well!

Room Tip: If you don't choose a room with a garden or pool view, beware that your windows will be frosted...

The Suly Resort is a resort that is also a hospitality training center. Here, instead of professionalism, you get enthusiasm. If you expect impeccable service, you will be disappointed. But for a ridiculously low cost, you get a modern, clean, air-conditioned room, a great pool, lovely scenery (watching the sunrise from my window was breathtaking), and a complimentary breakfast. After Suly, I wanted to be in the center of town and stayed in a highly rated hotel for over twice as much, getting mosquitoes through the gaps in the door and ants attacking my toothpaste. I longed to return to my small but CLEAN Suly room. Do not let negative reviews scare you from here. I felt foolish for being scared to stay longer.

The students are polite to not impose themselves on guests, but if you show interest in helping them improve their English, they will gather around you and love to chat. You can also take a yoga class with the manager who is also a healer in his village. His brand of Balinese yoga and meditation is fascinating, very indigenous and different from Yoga Barn courses. If you are a people person with interest in getting to know Balinese people and their culture, there is no better place than to stay here.

I was hesitant to stay here based on the negatives reviews, but so glad I did. I want to address them from my own experience:
1) Toilets did not smell 95% of the time. There were a couple of brief occasions where a funky smell wafted through, but it quickly went away. Frankly the funky waft on the airplane back bothered me much more.
2) There are no rats nor rodents in the new building. When people complain about the bad construction, they are probably referring to the stairs which are uneven. But many buildings in Bali are.
3) The food is not so great. The breakfasts are decent and filling. Other meals are not expensive, but not cheap and nothing like some of the yummy cafes in Ubud center. Still, there are plenty of restaurants at this level as well. The Lotus Café I would argue serves worse food for higher prices with bad service.
4) The dance show is not of a professional nature either. It is like watching a high school production. Either you enjoy the students or you don’t. T In the laminated brochure, it states that you can either order the dinner package or watch the show only for 50,000 IDR. While I was there, there was a group who clearly wanted to watch but didn’t want to buy so they watched it from the bar instead. I find that behavior kind of mean-spirited.
5) DO NOT for a moment think these innocent kids are trying to scam your money. The students are enthusiastic about getting people to watch their show, just as they are very friendly in promoting their Sunday Market event which offers things for FREE.I tried to give a girl a tip once and she pushed it away. Others will take it with the happiest expression of gratitude.
6) The other thing I want to clarify is that the owner (who I do not know or haven’t met) is NOT taking advantage of these kids as free labor. There are 170 scholarship students here, and usually less than 30 guests. You do the math and figure whether they are being overworked…

The Suly Resort is considered a volunteer tourism destination. If you stay here, you contribute to the education of underprivileged youths and by patiently talking with them, help their language skills. You can do good for very little here. Try it.

Room Tip: I saw the grand deluxe room and it was larger, had a nice balcony with a view and a large bathtub. B...

The day you check in they'll force you to reserve for a "cultural show" with dinner costing idr125, 000 per person for balinese food and show. The show was supposed to be from 7.30-9pm with song n dance balinese style. We were 4 of us and upon coming for the show realised that we were the only 4 who paid for a so called cultural show which by kids who use it like a practice session. The first 15mins of the show was relatively better off but nothing of professional standards. After the first 15mins the boys took over and started screaming in something which sounded like frogs croaking rather than music. There was a lone gal dressed in Indonesian dress not even dance costume, trying to dance to the croaking. For the next 45mins they got people from the audience to try their balinese dancing skills n make fools of themselves. N the show stopped at 8.30pm prior to the promised 1.5hrs. Anyway I doubt if I could have taken anymore of the croaking lest I go deaf. We were the only 4 who fell for their so called claims n the show worked out free for all others using the restaurant. The meal after paying so much included just free water and no other drinks. The irony being that customers just using the restaurant get to choose their preference of meal for much lesser cost and also enjoy the show while you pay and get stuck with hotel's choice of meal for you which might not even suit your taste. There was some kind of Indonesian soup served which most of us kept aside after the first sip followed by some rice, fried chicken and fish balinese style. The food was nothing exotic except for the balinese flowers they had on the table. This was followed by dessert of cut fruits...pineapple which was still raw! All in all waste of 500k rupiah to blast the hell out of your ears with some kids croaking thru mikes n calling it balinese culture. Oh n we did even have the bell boy joining the boys in dancing "balinese style"
