“The best boutique hotel of Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is what I call a perfect boutique hotel. Here, everything s made to make you feel special and at home. The hotel is beautiful (gorgeous pool!!), the rooms are designed with a lot of taste,all using Balinese handcraft (so beautiful we took photos of our room to get inspired for our guestroom back home!).
The restaurant is perfectly located, right in front of the rice fields and the pool, and the food is gorgeous, you ll be surprised!
The staff... The staff was the best: very discrete, friendly and the service was just perfect. We were there for our honeymoon, so we got flowers on our bed and a rose bath,and also a special desert at the restaurant with "happy honeymoon" written in chocolate. That was such a delightful surprise!
It was the perfect place for our honeymoon, really. When leaving, I almost hugged the clerk at the reception, she was so nice ! One word: Parfait !! Bravo!

I almost did not want to write this review, for the selfish reason of not wanting other discerning travellers to book this hotel, so that I can enjoy it all on my own for my next trip. However, the greater good prevailed. Kenanga is small, with only about 15 rooms, but it is tasteful, clean, peaceful, well-appointed and safe: all the things a traveller would want for a stay that refreshes the senses and the spirit. The infinity pool overlooks the gentle rice terraces of Ubud and these are illuminated by flickering lanterns at night. The breakfast is of exceptional quality, and the dinner was good enough that we decided to eat at the restaurant every evening just so we could support the hotel. Above all, every one of the staff went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful and welcome stay. On the last day when we requested for a late check-out due to a night flight, the manager, Mr Agustiawan, informed us regretfully that the best he could do was move us to another (more expensive) hotel room to rest, seeing as ours was already booked. Naturally, this was the icing on the cake. You will not regret the quality of your stay at this magical little hotel.

Kenanga is an oasis tucked away off a main road and only minutes drive to the heart of Ubud. What you see on their website is exactly what you get. We found it an excellent location for day trips and loved the courtesy bus option. A peaceful place to stay with like minded guests and has immaculate rooms, grounds and facilities. The infinity pool appears to flow over into the rice fields as we laid around on ample deck lounges.
Staff were attentive, very courteous and polite. Their is great attention to detail shown within the hotel. Breakfast was included and was not to be missed! In fact, all meals from the Terra Cotta restaurant were delicious - just needed to allow plenty of time. The French owners happened to be in at the same time and were very keen to hear our thoughts and spend time with us.
We look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: Second storey rooms offer further views of the rural outlook.

My husband and I (early 30's ) highly recommend this French Boutique resort that provides stylish rooms, great swimming pool overlooking rice paddy, delicious food (Traditional Balinese & European) and awesome service. The romantic dinner option in the midst of the rice paddy was a treat! The restaurant - Terra Cotta had an awesome range of food And drink. Owners were very keen for feedback at the end of our stay- always a good sign.
Exceeded our expectations

We loved our stay in Kenanga!
Location is away from ubud's noise, with great views over the rice fields. Everything is well maintained, very clean and you see the eye for details everywhere.
We had both dinner and breakfast and both were amazing. Again a great eye for details.
Staff were very friendly, helpfull and relaxed. No pushing, no time schedules etc as we experienced in some other hotels.

Highly recommended.

The location in front of the rice fields was fantastic, especially in the morning when u get up and u can see the sun reflected on the water. Great breakfast at the restaurant, nice staff. We had a problem with the key of our room we we came back at arounf 11pm one night, and it was fixed promptly.
It was a pity that we have never enjoyed the pool because we have always come back too late: actually the only bad point is that the pool is closed at 6pm (the sun goes down eraly in Bali).
Definetely recommended!

Room Tip: no matter which room u would choose, u won't escape from being waken up by frogs and geckos!

The wonderful views over rice paddies are one of the chief attractions of this comfortable and stylish hotel. It is a bit out of the centre of Ubud and there are no particularly interesting cafés, restaurants or shops within walking distance of the hotel (so visitors will need to arrange transportation), but the peace and calm are a real delight. The hotel staff is excellent, the European and Indonesian food tasty, and the breakfasts copious; complimentary afternoon tea, with nice pasties, is a real treat. The rooms are spacious and appointed in a chic minimalist style. The hotel is probably more suitable for couples, families or friends rather than solo or business travellers. The rooms are a bit dark for reading, but I understand that the management will be attending to this relatively minor problem.
