“Superb Service, Serene Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

This hotel is just absolutely wonderful. We stayed in two rooms in 2012 May (one was a regular room & the other had a heater outdoor jacuzzi). The outdoor room was fantastic as it had a small stream that flowed through it. The staff were so kind that they would switch on the heater for the jacuzzi even late at night. The jacuzzi was simply bliss

We were picked up from Bali airport in the middle of the night and we arrived early morning. The rooms were really large and the two rooms could easily accommodate 5 adults and 2 young children. The staff were very nice and my wife enjoyed the morning Yoga classes very much.

However, this is a small niche 4* hotel. You cannot expect multiple restaurants, library & gourmet food. Also, I am not sure if the staff can offer a concierge service. We planned our tours based on tripadvisor and guidebooks. For all practical purposes, this hotel will work very well for most people who want a nice comfortable base in Ubud that is reasonably luxurious

Room Tip: Choose the room with an outdoor jacuzzi.

After a hectic week in Singapore & KL we landed in Ubud. We stayed with Puri Sunia Resort for 5 nights of which 4 were in Deluxe room & 1 in Pool Villa.

Some facts on the hotel:
- Puri Sunia is a small hotel with 19 rooms. Its just 10-15 minutes outside Ubud but away from the hustle of Jl Monkey Forest road where most hotels are located.
- The hourly shuttle service is efficient - we used it only once for pickup from Ubud palace, but I was impressed that the driver immediately organised for another taxi when he realised there were more guests to fit in Hotel vehicle.
- Rooms are huge. Three of us stayed in one room and still the room was pretty big
- Toilets are specious too...like a small room. Each toilet has Sunken Bath & if you stay in Pool Villa you get a bath tub and private but large open area for bathroom
- The menu for lunch/dinner is rotated....choice of food is limited but the food is tasty. They do offer bread and for dinner free tasting of an appetiser. Breakfast has variety of Continental/American/Indonesian & Puri Sunia b/f
- Yoga room & massage facility is available but we didn't use the same in hotel. There is a common swimming pool just behind reception area. Don't expect too many 'resort' facilities.

What we liked:
- smiling faces of the staff & will greet you everytime.....it seems genuine and very pleasing
- rooms are excellent for the price. After looking at the Pool Villa we decided to splurge and upgraded to it for our last night by paying difference
- Pool Villa provides privacy. It has a small pool 4.5 ft deep.. we as family enjoyed it immensely
- well designed rooms and comfortable large beds with canopy. There was some mis-communication and at the time of check in we were told that there were two single beds & an extra bed for our teenaged daughter but they immediately changed the arrangement to suit our need and joined the two beds to make a real big bed which was big enough for 3 of us and we hardly used the third extra bed.
- Mr. Eka - he is full of energy and explained the room details to us when we moved in Deluxe room & again when moved in Pool Villa
- complimentary water bottles made of glass, which I have not come across in any other hotels but this simple makes a very big sense in avoiding plastic usage
- walk in paddy field twice a week with Julie. This includes visit to local village and walking through paddy fields. Be ready to get sweaty and possibly your shoes could get wet. This is very good.
- wash basin made out of stone - real cool
- excellent & courteous staff

what could have been better:
- more Balinese or Indonesian dishes - after few days it can be repetative
- although the rooms/bathrooms are clean in some places the corners could have been cleaner

Could be best suited for
- primarily couples and families as well
- if you want to stay in peace and willing to spend extra 20 minutes to travel to Ubud for meals/entertainment

We will highly recommend this small resort.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are great but if your budget permits go for Pool Villa

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Three day stay as part of 10 day first time holiday to Bali.

We arrived on delayed flights and therefore way after midnight and a full 17 hour journey after only coming from Brisbane. All we wanted to do was start our holiday and get into our room, as I we drove further in the dark down smaller roads had we the energy we would have been more worried.

Puri Sunia is a hidden gem. Bright and immaculately clean and gently furnished in wood the reception staff were up waiting for us with there hands pressed together and wonderfully warm smiles. We had a chilled glass of juice and a sandwich ready and waiting as they anticipated our being hungry on arriving so late. A quick non-intrusive introduction to our lovely cooled and spacious suite, an if you need anything please don't hesitate to call and we were hooked.

Hotel is nestled among the rice fields along 10 minutes of Balinese roads from Ubud, the free hourly transport to town takes you past local temples and shrines and proper local homes and businesses. I felt like I was seeing the real deal in this new country.

Quaint but modern and comfortable with wonderfully friendly staff, a good cocktail list and tasty menu, lovely pool and airy pavilion looking over the canape during the twice daily free yoga. Do yourself a favor and take the Balinese cooking class with the bright array of fresh ingredients and smells, personal tuition form the head chef and a guided tour of the local food market to open your eyes to sourcing the vital ingredients. Have dinner one evening when the local kids come along and put in a huge effort to give you a traditional dance show.

We stayed 3 nights before moving on and feel like we saw the real Bali before going and hitting the beach.

You should stay here.

Room Tip: Suites are upstairs with balcony, airy and light, more like one large room with bathroom and four po...

We stayed for three nights at the Puri Sunia Pool Villa in October 2013. We have been stunned by the the place which is real heaven on earth. The Resort Manager Mr. Dewa and his team really make you feel at home. Service is very personal, dedicated and friendly. Resort is situated in the countryside 10 minutes drive from Central Ubud. Shuttle drives you to the city center every hour from 8am until 22.30pm.

Room Tip: Private Pool Villas are amazing !

We just got back from 4 lovely nights at Puri Sunia. Excellent stay, staff very friendly and accomodating.
Just an example of the detail: We arrived late, at 10 PM, and staff had prepped courtesy sandwiches for us delivered to the room. NICE!

We had a Villa, very big with an outdoor dining setting, and bathroom connecting to pool, especially helpful when you need to shower your toddler after some pool fun.

Hotel can provide drivers for tours at reasonable price, which is great when you cant do an 8 or 9 hour pre-packaged tour.

Great breakfast service included.

We will come back here to stay, next time in Bali.

Room Tip: If you have a Villa, make sure you heat up the private pool.

Great place. So relaxing and the staff are fantastic. Free bus's into ubud but the food in puri sunia is class.
Did the bali baik bike tour... Well worth it. Only a few hours but you get a great feel of what bali has to offer.

We have stay here for three nights with a really nice experience. The room, food and service are so good. Staff always treat you like their own family. The location also nice, not in the down town, but they did provide the shuttle services by hourly.

But the shower head or the hot water system have some problem. The hot water always out of control, sometimes is so hot, sometimes is cold. Even I mention that to the manager, they still can not fix it. We can not have a confortable shower during the period. That is the only thing we can not accept.

But I will go there again, if I have chance. Since I really like this place and I will ask them give me a better room next time.

我們在那呆了三個晚上,整體的經驗非常的好。房間,食物和服務都很好。員工對待你像對待自己家人。地點也很好,不在市區,但提供接送服務。

只是浴室的熱水系統可能有問題,水總是時冷時熱。就算我在經理面前提過,還是沒能解決。我們一直沒能舒服的洗個澡。

但我想我還是會選擇住在這裡,如果有機會的話。但下次我會選一間沒問題的房間。
