This was the most amazing resort! It is located about 5 minutes from Ubud, is quiet and is surrounded by tranquil rice fields. We stayed at Sungu for 4 nights with friends, and would have easily stayed there longer!
The resort has a complimentary shuttle service which takes you into the centre of Ubud and will pick you up as well (great for saving money and avoiding taxi drivers trying to constantly rip you off). The drivers are lovely and speak very good english, which is very handy! The staff at this hotel were some of the best staff I have encountered at any resort I have stayed in (even in Australia). They greeted us with smiles each morning, helped us with adapters and other room queries, as well as organising restaurant bookings and tours. We also had a late flight, and they allowed us to stay in the room up until our airport transfer at 6pm for no extra charge.
Food-wise, the complimentary breakfasts were incredible. High end dining, with a choice of 4 different menu options and effectively 2 courses, which are delicious and extremely well presented. The resort also offered us afternoon tea daily by the pool, which was again wonderful.
Again, I could not recommend this resort more highly! Will definitely come back here again - the outdoor bathroom is a unique experience!
