This was originally our 1st choice however we were being offered to try their sister hotel Puri Sebatu which was opening middle Oct.
We proceeded with their offer only to know 2 days prior to arrival that Puri Sebatu did not open in time (slight disappointment) so we were move back to Puri Sunia.
Puri Sunia was located in an quite an isolated area with nothing much by greenery and padi surrounding. It is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle. Not for those looking for excitement. We arrived late and the drive to the hotel was rather dark and scary. Kind of give u an idea how lsolated it was. But we love it being around padi fields and greenery.
We had the deluxe room which was on the 2nd storey. To be honest there was not much a view from the room that we have 808 that is. Just trees that. But within room (a big room), the bed was comfy, aircon strong, water from the shower good, nice big bath tub and just very relaxing.
Facilites and Activities
The yoga session was good although abit early at 7am.
The trekking that happens on Tues and Sat at 8am is a must go!!! They bought us around the rice padi fields, show us how the local live and do and we even got to try harvesting the rice and also buy fresh coconut from the local who climb up the coconut tree with no safety equipment. It was really an eye opener.
There was running on other days at 8am, not for the faint hearted though and the route can be a bit rough your ankles.
The shuttle service to Ubud centre was good as well, the driver gave us good recommendation on the food as well.
Staff and food
The staff were all cheerful and welcoming. Greeting us every day making our holiday wonderful from the start to finish.
Lovely touch with the chicken sandwiches when we arrived late.
Breakfast was ala cart, very good spread and wide range of choices. However room service was not as good, choice were rather limited and the one we chose were really just average only.
This is my first trip to Bai but I could see myself coming back here over and over again and certainly Puri Sunia would be the 1st choice that would come to my mind if i want a peaceful and enjoyable stay.
