Villa is a little far from the town center, this keep it's peacefull and calm. All the staff were so nice, it made my holiday totally carefree. The banana pancake of breakfast is very delicious!

Thank you Robyn, Dean & team Villa Saraswati for making our stay so relaxed and wonderful. Robyn & Dean for your kindness and tips on Ubud, especially the paddy fields walk and the restaurants. It was really home away from home :-)

From the minute I arrived until the minute I left I felt I didn't have a trouble I the world. All the staff were so friendly and tentative it made our holiday totally carefree. The Villa was so peaceful and calm, it was so nice to come back to this beautiful safe haven after a day of adventuring. The rooms were lovely and there was plenty of space with lovely finishes, the outdoor shower was a definite highlight! I have and would recommend this to anyone looking for a piece of Bali paradise!

Photo's don't do the B&B justice and finding words to truly describe experience is hard....
Dean and Robyn (owners) have picked amazing staff members, nothing is to much trouble, local knowledge is great and you are always greeted with a smile. We stayed here for 7 amazing nights, last few nights we were the only people booked in along with Dean and Robyn and it was great, they are so welcoming and such an inspiration. The villa is set out perfectly that each set of guests have privacy but also the chance to interact with other guests. The rooms are very spacious, clean and well appointed. Kitchen menu is great and not overboard, breakfast is wonderful...You must try Balinese Breakfast and Saraswati Burger mmmmm....This beautiful villa is a true romantic, relaxing, cultural and peaceful paradise....

Robyn and Dean are such good host. They are warm, informative, accomadating and went out of their way to make our stay most memorable. We felt like we were in heaven and they and the staff are angels. It was my partner's birthday and Roybn made great efforts to celebrate it with cake , balloons and personal attention.

We cannot thank Robyn enough, we did not want to leave.

My husband and I stayed at Villa Saraswati for the last 2 nights of our Xmas/New Year holiday in Bali. We are regular visitors to Bali and Villa Saraswati was recommended by a friend, we were not disappointed in any way. The villa is located in a village approximately 10 minutes from the centre of Ubud but the Villa staff run regular (free) shuttle services into the centre throughout the day. If you choose to stay and have dinner in Ubud it is only a $5 transport fare back to the Villa.

Robyn and Dean, the owners of the Villa, are extremely hospitable and the villa staff provide excellent service without being pushy in any way. The five suites are extremely well appointed with indoor and outdoor showers and exceptionally comfortable beds.

On our first night we enjoyed the company of the owners and other guests over a light meal and drinks.It felt a little more like having dinner with old friends than staying in paid accommodation.

The pool area is delightful and the tranquility of the villa's setting certainly adds to the experience. I could only highly recommend Villa Saraswati, I know we will definitely be back.
