Situated on the tree covered slopes of the mountains in the centre of Bali, the Sarinbuana lodge offered us the perfect retreat from noise, traffic and the consumer world. Our accommodation there was in a small house built in traditional local style with a balcony with magnificent extensive views over the trees right down to the coast. There was complete... More

After 2 years of calamities we've decided to get away from our troubles and spend a week somewhere quiet. The Sarinbuana Lodge seemed to fit the bill perfectly and it proved to be exactly what we needed. The location is stunningly beautiful tropical rural paradise. The grounds, bungalows and the restaurant are very clean and well maintained. The young managers... More

We where for three nights there. The bungalow was nice, the food was good, but the portion was small. An extra coffee or toast cost extra. Linda and Norm are not realy interested about the guests. They don't say good bye. The jungle, the noise of the jungle was beautyful and the rest aerea also. But we didn't felt very... More

After staying in busy Ubud and the coast it was a delight to finish our holiday in the quiet and beauty of this place, high up on the mountainside. Accommodation was beautiful, with an amazing view of the sunrise (we adjusted our waking hours substantially while there!) great food and attentive staff. Particularly recommended were the massages, we ended up... More

Stayed here in November 2010. Wonderful place to get away from it all. First time staying in the middle of the "jungle". Get used to the noises of the night after the first night. Fabulous hosts and staff. Friendly, informative, great food and cooking class. Still make their salad dressing at home.

Stayed as a couple in this amazing place. Staff was very helpful, almost overly friendly (which was lovely) and so grateful that we came. Views of bali below and mountains above are incredible and there is a lot to do including rainforest walks, workshops (crafting, cooking, medicine etc.), massages and more. Meals were healthy, delicious and nearly 100% locally grown.... More

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish, felt like we spent the last 5 days in heaven. To top it off the staff assisted my boyfriend in creating a magical, romantic dinner where he proposed.

If you are looking for a different holiday experience that is tranquil, remote, and where you are surrounded by nature, this is the place to go to. Our bungalow, Rumah Manis, is perched on a private slope, and offers spectacular views of the valley. The room is clean and rustic but comfortable enough. We could hear bird songs every morning,...

Thank you for your feed back. Unfortunately we were away during your visit, sorry we have other projects now.

Sarimbuana Eco Lodge (SEL) is a small well-run retreat set on the side of the forested Mount Batukaru. The views from SEL are stunning, the food is fresh and tasty, and the staff efficient and responsive. Each Bungalow is private and has lovely views overlooking the valley. We were in Rumah Manis (Sweet Room), which is well-appointed with a netted... More

I'm not sure how to describe Sarinbuana, it is hard to accurately portray the beauty, sense of peace and detachment from the rest of the world. It came highly recommended by a close friend who has stayed many times and was also there with us but I was nervous that my 16 and 18 year old niece and nephew may... More
