“Peaceful & beautiful experience - like a stay in tropical paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My husband and I considered Ubud Hanging Gardens as we were looking for somewhere in Ubud with the oo-la-la (afterall the resort was featured in Conde Nast Traveler), but we finally decided on Puri Sunia for our 6 night stay. I'm very happy with our choice. It's been a completely blissful experience. 

A peaceful setting. Most sides of Puri Sunia are set amidst thick foliage and is quite luxurious like on a tropical island, while the front of the resort opens up to quaint little patches of a paddy field. It's an intimate and cosy environment, with the comforts of a well maintained resort. Birds, butterflies and dragonflies flutter about. Sightings of red ants and house lizards were thankfully rare.

The resort has a good layout, with quite a few spots at which we spent many lazy afternoons relaxing. The dining area is airy with views of trees overhanging the resort's pool on one side, and a more local scene with the occasional motor cycle whizzing by the paddy field on the other side. Hanging out in the yoga area feels like you are on a tree top viewing platform with greenery abound. The balcony of our upstairs room also had privacy from an almost unobstructed view. 

We had a suite room upstairs. Spacious, clean and comfortable. The decor is a nice balance between modern with traditional touches - refer to resort's website photos. High roof and a bigger than usual bath tub. We found the pillows too soft but the resort replaced them with firmer ones. 

The resort's food was consistently yummy and of good quality. For eg, spreads for bread were a variety of olive, pumpkin, etc. We had their Asian salads, local dishes, American n Int'l breakfasts. I was impressed that the pastries were always served warm. Prices were comparable to restaurants in Ubud city center, not exorbitant. 

Complimentary services galore. It was great that the resort offered hourly shuttle to Ubud's city center which was a short 10 to 15 min ride away. The ride weaves through the villages and takes a scenic route so it's almost an excursion on its own. Free daily yoga and tea sessions were nice options we occasionally took up and enjoyed too. The two hour trek on Tuesday led by the resort staff through a village and paddy fields was good fun. 

Resort staff was always warm and friendly. A joy to be always greeted with smiles and sometimes by first names at the reception area when we returned after an outing or at the start of one's day at breakfast. 
We have also been fortunate on this trip with like minded resort guests at Puri Sunia - for eg, no one rushes to reserve pool side chairs before breakfast. There hasn't been any sense of overcrowding at any of the resort's facility, even though I believe the resort is about 80% occupied - perhaps each guests' timing has simply worked itself out. 

Weather was perfect too. I generally prefer the tropical heat to temperate weather (for eg, I found the weather a bit too chilly for swimming at HuaHin, Thailand, in Dec). During our stay, it rained on some afternoons as this is the rainy season but I welcomed it as it made the afternoons in Bali cooler. On some nights, after it rained, we left the balcony doors open for the cool breeze in instead of using the air con. 

I'll definitely return to Puri Sunia, especially if the upkeep of the resort is maintained.

Came to Puri Sunia with my mum. From the time we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel at home. Every staff member was obliging and nothing was to much trouble. The continental Breakfast was great and so much food.
Would definitely recommend this resort to couples and anyone just wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle. Complimentary yoga twice per day and also some other fitness activities. Free wifi and an hourly shuttle service into Ubud town centre.

I just returned from a magical place where everyone remembers you by name and welcomes you into their world. I spent 4 nights at Puri Sunia on Bali then 2 nights of hell in Kuta and then back to Puri Sunia for 7 nights. The day we were leaving for Kuta the manager gave my daughter and I his card with the offer that if we needed help to please contact him; which we did that night. So back to heaven we went. Our rooms, the excellent cuisine, the spa, daily yoga class, walking and running treks, making of offerings, available tours, bikes, pool, and an incredible staff made this an enchanting mother/daughter experience which left us loving Bali and vowing to return.

Puri Sunia offers a private relaxing oasis to enjoy the calm beauty of Ubud. Some would find the distance from the centre a negative aspect of the hotel, but you can easily take advantage of their shuttle service to reach the city center. On the contrary I loved being away from the hassle of the town, which is quite different from the paradisiac image of the most spiritual city in Bali that books and movies have built around it. Staying at PS we had the chance of taking an amazing walk through the rice fields just round the corner of our room. The staff, the restaurant and the small swimming pool are all great.

Puri Sunia was simply one of the best places we've ever stayed at. Relaxed, private, very friendly. Yoga in the mornings and then running. Thank you to Dewa and his team, including Dedi, Mayun - and if you stay in a bungalow, make sure you try the barbeque feast. Huge thanks to Madi for that.

We had the private villa with pool, stayed for 6 days and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an upscale, quite, hotel, away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud. Though we had a private pool for ourselves, it was "only" about 2x2m; however, it was perfect for quick dips to splash around with the wee one. Yes, we had our 11-month-old baby with us. We also had a private terrace where we enjoyed the romantic candlelight dinner one evening, but mostly that's where we put up the playpen we rented from Balibaby. There was a grassy area, but once a huge 30 cm long jackfruit fell from the trees above - scary to think what would have happened had it hit one of us (or, gasp, our baby).

The breakfast selection was fantastic; the continental breakfast was a bit too overwhelming with it's 4 courses, but having a fresh fruit platter was wonderful, so we ate a different breakfast each day (American, Indonesia breakfast as well).

Though Ubud is only a few kilometer from the hotel, it is too far to walk and there is an hourly shuttle that takes you to town, picking you up hourly as well. You just have to let them know when you want to go. They have morning and afternoon yoga, a welcoming foot massage, and other spa treats (but you'll pay European prices for them. Cheaper is to get massages, etc. in town).

Though this is sold as a family-friendly hotel, during the time we were there, there were 2 other families with babies and they only had 1 high chair. Also, our villa was quite dark and because of the humidity, our room had a light musky smell to it especially when they opened the mosquito nets. The closets were also blanked in darkness, and the curtains covering the windows along the dark-side of the villa, in the back were actually moldy on the bottom.

Welcoming and trully friendly personnel made our first days in Bali unforgettable.

The resort runs very smoothly with yoga in the morning, great welcoming free massage, activities (do not miss the trekking with Julie), shuttle service to the centre of Ubud, amazing breakfast with 4 style menus to choose from, etc.

We loved chilling in the pool and had loads of fun visiting the market in the morning with the very friendly Buda. The cooking experience arranged for us was also very interesting and great fun (we'll try back home again!)

All in all, it was a great stay - interesting, calming and with plenty of activities to do.

Perfect for couples, great location in a quiet area only 10 min from Ubud centre where there are really good restaurants and genuinely friendly staff.

Room Tip: The villa with private pool is just paradise
