“Perfect place to relax”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Subak Tabola is trully a sanctuary of peace and relaxation. It is located in the middle of rice terraces and beautiful green hills. Sidemen seems still pretty untouched by tourists, there are only few hotels and warungs over there. Rooms are best we had on our honeymoon - bathroom just blew our mind! You feel like you are so close to nature aroun here. To tell the truth the worst thing about this place was food - athough cheap it was very average in taste. Staff was very friendly.

We totally recommend this place if you're looking for a peaceful place and you would like to see real Bali. One day we went for a walk which ended in almost 15 km trip along villages. It looked like we were only white people there for quite some time. It was an amazing experience.

Subak Tabola is a unique pearl. The location in the mittle of the rice fields is perfect and the surrounding nature with mountains rice fields and river is perfect for exploration and best thing is that all the beauty can be seen from everywhere in the hotel.
As soon as we arrived we could feel the good atmosphere among the staff. An atmosphere that only happens we the staff is feels well and hence are able to create an unique experience for the customers. Subak Tabola is simple amazing.

Such a beautiful setting, it's a shame that their Lotus rooms were infested. Rat droppings awaited us every morning in our room, very unsanitary. And they decided to take a swim in our toilet at 1 am. Then we discovered a bat hanging from our ceiling. I love wildlife when I'm camping, but that's it. Then when we moved rooms, the new rooms had no hot water. They need to spend more time on room maintenance. Too much money for this. It's a shame.

A group of us came to do yoga for a week and Tabola was the perfect place for our retreat. It overlooks an amazingly green valley of rice fields and the sound of chanting at ceremonies that echoed from the many temples round us set the atmosphere.
The property is situated in gorgeous gardens with lotus ponds and vegie plots that support the kitchen. The food in the restaurant is first class - imaginative and very healthy - you will never go hungry. There is a lovely refreshing swimming pool and a fleet of masseurs to take care of all your bodily needs.
We called our villa our palace - the rooms were romantic with the mosquito nets over the beds (even though I did not see one mosquito) and the bathrooms outside - theres nothing like showering in the great outdoors. The thing I liked most were the daybeds on the verandahs where we would recline in the afternoons to read or just gaze at the beauty around us.
I want to recommend the staff in particular - they went out of their way to accommodate our every need. These are very special genuine people. I am coming back. Enjoy!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a problem with any of the rooms.

Voted "best place ever" by our 10 & 12 yr old boys! And my husband, 3yr old son and myself all agreed. It was the perfect introduction to Balinese culture for the kids and highly recommend for families to unwind and relax in a natural, eco environment.
This villa was the highlight of our 2 week holiday. We stayed 2 nights and wished we had booked 5. All the staff were friendly and the villas clean, well kept, quiet and relaxing. Our room was beautiful with lots of space for 5 of us. The boys loved the pool with views and were delighted when they could use the other 2 other infinity pools at Surya Shanti. The kids could kick a ball around on the field near the pool or wander along the walkways to the water lillies, lotus ponds, gardens and ducks, rabbits and porcupines! We enjoyed the free rice paddy tour with Gus (their cook and local) and shuttle bus to Sideman village for the early morning markets. The 2 older boys had their first ever massages at the open air 'spa' with views.
Thanks to Rasmini, Gus, Mary and staff for making our family so welcome!

If you want to experience the “real” Bali – come to this place!

Enjoy the great, family-like people and service, nice cottages, fantastic view on the surrounded rise fields and very good restaurant with delicious food.

I and my 5 years old daughter really enjoyed to be here not just as guests but as a part of the family: joining a morning puja in the temple just behind our cottage at the sunrise, watching to the dancing and playing music children in the next door ashram, walking around the gorgeous rise terrace. In this place we decided to come to Bali again and for sure to see the “family” again.
