“Garden of Eden!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

After the crazy journey from Denpasar we could not believe we could come across somewhere so tranquil. We were greeted by Iwan the guest relation manager who told us that if we wanted anything to just ask "here anything is possible" and he was true to his word. We stayed here for a part of our honeymoon and were made to feel so special. The food was great and so was the spa. Its in the middle of nowhere but that was exactly what we wanted, an escape from the Bali madness. :-)

If you are looking for a get away from the hustle and bustle of life then Nandini is a great place. Situated about 30 minutes outside Ubud, the resort is based in a jungle location with chalets rising from the river. There is a cable car if you find the stairs a bit tiring.

The staff where excellent always friendly and happy to assist and eager to give you advise on what activities you can do to enhance your stay. It is not a huge resort so the staff get to know you and always have time to chat. The pool area is excellent and very quiet we had it to ourselves on a few days bliss.

I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10 which was great as it had great views of the jungle and over looking the pool.

My buddy and I stayed at this resort which was situated in the middle of a jungle paradise. The entire staff and specially the guest relation manager, Iwan Suryada, went out of their way to ensure we had the best memorable experience. The hotel room rates are a bit more than an standard Ubud hotel, but you are getting your money's worth...the experience of staying in the middle of a jungle, not to mention the multitudes of activities at your disposal is just plain surreal. If you are a yogi, then this place is heavenly. For other lay folks, the place has so much to offer. You can venture outside the hotel using the hotel mountain bikes and see the local villages, rice paddies, local farms, and beautiful scenic view points, within 10-15 min bike ride. The hotel also has an excellent staff at its spa, for a pedi mani or a 2 hour balinese massage overlooking a natural river. The infiniti pool is also incredible and overlooks a pristine lush valley in the jungle. All and all, this is the only place I would stay at if you are looking to getaway from the crowded beach resorts.

We stayed for 6 nights. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. They were very helpful in organising tours and transport in and around Ubud.

The views and sounds of the jungle were amazing. We would love to go back!

Room Tip: Rooms higher up have better jungle views.

We decided to spoil ourselves by booking at Nandini Bali Resort & Spa in Ubud and wasn't disappointed. We stayed for 3 nights and had a great experience! After staying there, we also stayed at hotels in Lovina (north Bali), Amed (east Bali), Sanur (south Bali) and Nusa Lembongan (an island off the south of Bali). In hindsight, Nandini was high priced and not within walking distance from central Ubud but the service, room, food, pool, cool jungle/rainforest, quiet and interesting surroundings were exceptional!!! The spa was amazing and we received a surprise birthday cake and song by the staff. A special thanks to Iwan Suryadi (Guest Relations Manager) and his colleagues, who were the most friendly, helpful and professional hosts we've met :-)

Room Tip: Pick a room above the pool, with great views across the valley.

Its certainly an expensive destination but worth it if you are looking for a romantic getaway. It was fantastic with little rain showers frequenting Bali during the beginning of the year which made the nights looking at the jungle a lot more interesting and the birds in the night will certainly reassure that you are admist the jungle. Loved the food be it the breakfast or dinner, I did opt for room service and not buffet for dinner but we enjoyed Evert bit of it. About reacvhung the place its easily 25/30 min drive from ubud, make sure you let your driver talk to them before so you are not lost as it can get trickier,mainly because you are heading in to a jungle. Walking down to the river was tiring but was no big deal for me and certainly worth the visit down. Complimentary foot massage was just offered since it was on the cards and the masseuse was NOT at all professional to offer since that was complimentary, certainly a message to the management. We requested for a different chalet since there were a bit of unusual wear n tear with what we were offered for which they were ready to shift us in no time to a better room. Overall it was a pleasant stay..

Room Tip: There is a lift/gondola which carries you up n down so you are good. But if you are a couple choose...

We just came back from a 3 night stay at Nandini. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The location is slightly out of the way. Very quiet and not a great deal to do other than very expensive spa treatments, swim in the beautiful pool, soak in the hot jacuzzi. There is a shuttle bus leaving 2x a day if you would like to go into the centre of Ubud which is roughly half hour drive in. The rooms were delightful, full view of the beautiful rainforest and amongst it, monkeys swinging from trees. We had room 11 which is a superior deluxe and it was all that I thought it should be apart from the lack of lighting. The breakfasts were so so but we never had a decent dinner, ordered a burger and the burger meat was very raw and the other night we had pasta, very small portion left us both hungry and my entree of tom yum goong soup had prawn crap pipes floating around in it, on third night didn't even bother ordering anything. I've come to the conclusion that the must be short for staff in the kitchen, if this isn't the case then they definitely need a new chef. I'm not saying this is a bad place to consider staying, just do some research because once your out there, your out there, if you after peace and quiet with not much action then this is definitely the place for you.

Room Tip: If you need wifi book a room close to the restaurant any further down and you have not internet othe...
