“fantastic!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

this place is absolutely beautiful, it is in the middle of nowhere. so tranquil, great price for what it is. The staff are lovely and friendly, it was clean, and they harvest vegetables in the morning to make your meals. Very peaceful and romantic, and i reccommend trying the coconut milkshake and hot chocolates.

Yes you will pay a little more here than in many places in Bali, but the value is definitely here. This is an amazing place high in the mountains -- a great way to escape the bustle and noise of Ubud or other places in south or central Bali. This place is so thoughtfully put together, and the restaurant is really really good. I felt like I found the old Bali up here. The road to the place is really bad, I recommend using their driver - your driver from another place will probably get lost trying to find the place. But once you are here its worth it. Just go.

being higher in elevation than Ubud, it gets down right cool in the evening -- what a delight.
great setup: several (5?) bungalows set along slopes within a rainforest with outdoor shower and toilet. beautiful dinning/relaxing hall. and the food was simply special. stayed two nights to see the world famous rice terraces on a day trip.

Thank you,

Its winter here in Bali, for about 8 weeks, where night time temperatures drop to 20 degrees C
( many guests don't realise we are in the Southern hemisphere). Thanks again for your stay

A bit pricy compared to some of the other hotels I stayed at in Bali, but oh, sooooooooooooo worth it; please, do go!!!! Fantastic service, food is divine, the property is indeed off of the beaten path, but that is the point.:-) The Orchid room was truly and amazing suite. I left all of the windows open and slept under the mosquito net every night. 'had tea out on my private veranda. Love, love, loved.........the outdoor shower with the adjoining private sunning area. Imagine the water falls and adjacent natural pool as your "mostly private" swimming hole!!!! The vegetation, the flora, the birds and BUTTERFLIES........everywhere....truly a unique experience. I really appreciate all of the work and love that went into making this place what it is today. Fantastic massages, outside. The lodge offers different "experiences"; I booked a local medicine woman to come in and teach me about local medicinal uses for local plants. This was a terrific experience - I wish my kids were with me for that one for sure. She actually made and let me help make the elixirs and I tried ALL of them, even with the raw egg - which she proudly brought from her own chickens...........I highly recommend this resort - treat yourself..........just go!!!

Go to Sarinbuana Eco Lodge. Has an amazingly refreshing waterhole, great activities such as traditional wood carving and cooking classes, beautiful surroundings, delicious food and it's all at your own pace so you can relax and recover from being a robot in everyday life. Also - Big up the staff! Lovely peeps :)

I had known of Sarinbuana Eco Lodge for 10 years through the i-escape.com website. When I was lucky enough to spend 6 days here with my family this month, all my expectations were met and surpassed! Our two year old loved the wonderful staff,and our 7 and 8 year olds loved the limestone and wood carving workshops with the local instructor Ketut. A fantastic place for families with young children as they can roam around the property visiting the monkeys and rabbits and guinea pig. The large yoga bale is fantastic for doing yoga with or without instructor. The setting is blissful and serene, we spotted extraordinarily large and beautiful butterflies. The team in the kitchen are easily as talented as chefs in a 5* restaurant! meals are sublime. Homemade chocolate mousse and ice cream, a cooking class to learn to prepare the evening's meal, a candlelit dinner for myself and my husband with the children looked after by a lovely local babysitter. We also enjoyed a walk with one of the local guides who was excellent. We hope to be back soon!

Room Tip: Treehouse is excellent for families with kids.

Wow! & thank you for your very lovely review.

We love having children here... exploring & sharing our place, as our children have loved to do over the years.

Its very right to show kids this side of a holiday- an adventure into a nature based, caring culture.

Just spend a wonderful 3 nights at the Lodge in the Orchid Bungalow. Beautiful woodwork, art, sculptures, flowers await u in this lovely part of Bali. A 2 hour drive away from Kuta takes u to a completely different climate, no sweating, no air con or fans needed. we even slept under a doona. The outside shower is an unforgetable experience along with the many activities on offer. My hubby and I attended the cook your own dinner workshop to learn about curries, along with a free tour of the permaculture garden. We also did a 3 hour walk through the rainforest and a language class with the same lovely local woman. I was fortunate to spend 3 hours with Ketut who taught me to carve limestone and was so honest about his life and i felt closer to the real Balinese way of life here than anywhere else i stayed. the food was fresh and great as were the massages down by the koi pond. dont think about it, book it, u wont be disappointed.
