Like taking in a breath of fresh air as you arrive at the gates of shankari retreat Shankari Retreat was a welcome retreat away from the busy centre of Ubud, only a short drive away from all the tourist hype that ubud is now coming to be. The retreat is set in a lush rainforest large property right next to... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and loved it. Our room was beautiful and had 2 perfect little reading lounges on the balcony. The staff were very helpful and caring and looked after me when I was feeling sick. The restaurant served up a great breakfast. Great place to stay!

Although there is accomodation closer to the beach , which may be more appealing to the average tourist this retreat is a place of magic , wonder and energy. Throughout... More

Shankaris is a Relaxing retreat with great vegetarian menu (some fish/chicken dishes) and a very peaceful rain forrest type atmosphere. Rooms are clean but basic, no mod cons though 2 rooms have a/c and all are very private. There are 3 seperate pools. The staff are very helpful when spoken to, they do not hassle or pressure you at all.... More

Basic, relatively clean although corners need to be checked by supervisors. Water intermittently becoming too hot or cold, inconsistent flow. But ok for the special price, on normal rate I would rather choose somewhere else. If you are in for yoga perhaps this can be overlook.

Amazing place. The staff was very useful and friendly. Wayan the receptionist, Wayan the server, Widia and Made the driver were fantastic. The food was so delicious and healthy. Our room the Ganesha Turtle was so pretty and comfortable. Very close to the beach and the village. What an amazing place!!

We found this amazing place by surprise and we were taken away from the first moment. The whole place has a very relaxing feeling and the staff is so friendly, that you feel like home from the first second. Especially Wajan is a diamond. The bungalow's have a very nice interior and are very clean. The balcony invites to chill... More
