My wife and I spent a delightful four nights at the Puri Sunia. Located about 15 minutes from Ubud, Puri Sunia was indeed a special hotel. From well designed, spacious rooms, to beautifully landscaped grounds which fit harmoniously with the local environment, the hotel was a feast for our senses. Every time you looked around the corner of a building, there was something lovely to see.
We purchased the Art and Cultural Package and found it to be well worth the extra money. It included an incredible Balinese dinner for two; a private driver for half a day who took us shopping to places we never would have found ourselves, as well as a museum; a one hour massage for each of us; and several other features, some of which we didn’t even have time to take advantage of.
One of our fondest memories of Puri Sunia will be the tranquility of the breakfasts overlooking the rice fields and the local road. They were excellent with a variety of western and Balinese choices. It should be noted that that although we had most of our other meals in town, those that we had at the restaurant were quite good.
A word or two about the shuttle to Ubud. Don’t worry, it always left on time: never early, never late. The drive into town is scenic and the drivers competent, courteous and helpful.
Finally, a few words must be said about the staff. Each and every one of them are to be commended for their genuine warmth and professionalism. From the front desk to the servers in the restaurant to housekeeping to those working the grounds to the shuttle drivers, each had a smile, a warm greeting, and a helping hand.
