Thankyou Dirk for an enjoyable stay. Everything from the delicious breakfasts and afternoon teas served on our balcony by your friendly staff to the availability of a driver to taxi us in and out of Ubud at our whim was top notch. Such a peaceful environment to unwind in. Special thanks to the "gecko catcher" for removing this critter from... More

Major concerns: 1) cleanliness - floor is not washed, but simply swept, which is certainly not enough plus dirty cups are not always taken away from the room if you are not asked for it! 2) location - if you are not ready to walk 15-20 minutes on a very busy Indonesian street and not waiting for the taxi for...

1. The floor is scrubbed before a new check in (average length of stay is 3 days) and mopped or swept during a stay. 2. We offer a free shuttle to the center of Ubud from 10:00 -22:30. This is a complimentary service by our staff and using the company car. If the driver is out, picking up or dropping... More

Last year September we visited Bali and stayed for 5 nights at villa Sabandari. We enjoyed the tasteful interior of our room, the lovely breakfasts, the afternoon teas at the (infinity) pool side and the perfect service of all staff. All of this contributed to an unforgettable stay. As we were at the villa more than 3 nights we were... More

Villa Sabandari takes benefit from its great location a little bit outside of Ubud in the middle of the green rice fields which can be seen from each room. We booked 3 nights in the Baris room on the first floor which included a highly recommended day tour and an one-way airport transfer. The room is very nice and you... More

Dear Guest, I wholeheartedly agree with your analysis that ‘a good hotel needs more than a unique location and nice rooms’. That is why I do my utmost to personally welcome my guests at check in, and to take time to give practical information to make their stay a relaxing one. I furthermore try my best to give these explanations... More

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel. It is the perfect combination of elegance, luxury and simplicity. It is located in a peaceful rice field just a short walk from the main tourist area which is perfect. The service was excellent. The food was great. It's an oasis I would highly recommend.

We stayed in Villa Sabandari for four days during our visit to Ubud. It truly was an amazing experience. First, the location is exquisit. Very close to the city center (the hotel provides free transfer to any location in central Ubud), but far enough, so that its quiet and calm. Perfect place to relax. Second, the view from the villa... More

Beautifully maintained and presented place to stay, conveniently located only a short drive or 15 minute walk to Monkey Forrest Road. More peaceful than others which are more central. Staff are very gentle and helpful with any request. Breakfast and afternoon teas delightful and not just enough without the urge to overeat. The only downside is limited privacy from the... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Sabandari for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it! The architecture is stunning and blends effortlessly with the landscaping and rice fields. Villa Sabandari is tranquility at its finest. Despite feeling like its own private world, Villa Sabandari is just a short walk to the main shopping and art district in Ubud. Our... More

This is a beautiful place to stay. Apart from the location, peace, nature, lovely staff and serenity of the place, the owners must know that offering a little extra makes a huge difference. Breakfast was perfect and plenty to keep you going most of the day and afternoon tea is something to look forward to. Great service, best Ive experienced... More
