“Beautiful oasis in the heart of ubud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

I recently spent 4 blissful nights in the Alaya. As a lone traveller I felt very well looked after by the staff who were very friendly and helpful and booked me on a number of day tours which were top notch and even helped me book my next hotel when I was to leave ubud. The hotel is brand new and beautifully designed. It is great value for money and I can't recommend it highly enough.

From day one I realeized that there are two issues in the hotel: the worst internet connection and undiversified type of food in the breakfast, for example you cannot order cheese or potato in the breakfast unless you pay more despite that breakfast is included in the room charge.

Today I add another to the list of disadvantages, I went to the lobby for breakfast and I told them my order eggs no chiken no beacon and Mrs. Anny said only vegetarian food I said yes if you consider eggs is vegetables. After long time of waiting anf 3 families just came after me and thy are now enjoying thier coffee I am still waiting untill another guy bring me a plate of all kind of meat plus eggs he let me loss my appetiate.
I told him many times let Anny come please I want to talk with her but he didnt. then I just took my coffee which I requist again -as they forget it- to the room without eating my breakfast.
thier long time of service and changing my order ruing my morning.
I wish if I booked the hotel for max two nights, it is 9 am now and I am waiing this day to finish so I can check out and leave. BAD EXPERIANCE

I recently stayed at Alaya during their opening special offer of half price rooms. Firstly I was on the ground floor but asked to be moved after the first night during which they were trying to fix a blocked pipe outside! Not off to a great start but things improved and the third floor room was much quieter. Staff aimed to please with a few other issues including a lack of hot water. Good location with a supermarket next door and Monkey Forest Rd close by. Need more deck chairs and add umbrellas for around the pool - it was very hot and there was not enough shade. The restaurant wasn't busy except for breakfast - the menu was not very appealing for those wanting a true Bali experience. Overall though, a great place to stay and I hope to go back some day soon. Thanks for making my first trip to Bali special.

We enjoyed two wonderful nights at Alaya Ubud Resort. The resort itself is fairly new and beautifully designed and we had a very spacious room with a king bed and big LCD TV and gorgeous balcony overlooking the pool. Breakfasts were delicious. The staff are all lovely and very helpful. We also loved the location, a 5 minute walk to the Monkey Forest and Monkey Forest Road. We loved Ubud and would love to come back and stay at Alaya again in the future.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a wonderful night at the Alaya Resort in Ubud. We have never stayed in Ubud before, we have driven through and around but never stayed the night. We always stay in Villa De Daun in Kuta and were asked if we would like to see what we thought of Alaya Resort.

We loved it. It was so peaceful overlooking the rice fields from the balconey of our room. The room was so nicely decorated and the fixtures magnificent. I could have stayed in the shower all day with the rain shower head.

All in all the experience of Alaya Resort was wonderful. The staff were so friendly and helpful.

Hopefully next time we will stay a bit longer and really enjoy the peace and quiet.

Our 25th Wedding Anniversary needed a special hotel, so we checked the options in Ubud and selected the Alaya Resort. This proved to be one of my better decisions. From the moment we arrived to the time we had to leave it was a most enjoyable experience.

Our standard room was spacious, well designed and beautifully appointed. A marvelous breakfast was included each morning, as was complimentary afternoon tea. Dinner at the hotel's Petani restaurant was beautifully prepared and excellent value.

Staff took the usual Balinese hospitality to new heights - nothing was too much trouble. If you enjoy the spa experience, this is the place, and the pool provided the perfect way to recover from a busy day in town. The location is handy to most everything you need in Ubud.

They even surprised us with special considerations for our anniversary celebration. We really hated to move on, and will definitely return at the next opportunity. Go ahead, spoil yourself!

We arrived into Ubud with no plans, just my iPad and tripadvisor for a guide, Hotel Alaya seemed to appear everywhere, so we thought we'd take a look. I'd seen it was only opened in January 2013 so it's very new and in perfect condition. The staff are all 100% friendly and services spot on, the rooms, especially the hot tub ones are amazing! We stayed in room 321 near the pool and loved it.

Both my partner and I wanted to cycle and see the rice fields but didn't want an all day trip so the hotel lent us their brand new mountain bikes and Mayun (a member of staff) kindly offered to let us cycle with him during his afternoon break. It was amazing! We saw locals bathe in the rivers, rice fields that tourists don't usually see and a sunset to die for.

Breakfast was very good, I had American one day and eggs benedict the others, with drinks and afternoon tea included too. They operate a private bus (again brand new!) to just about anywhere in the town you'd like, free. I have to say (and heard other visitors say when checking out too) that it is the best hotel they've stayed at, and I have to agree.

We would come back for sure!! Tim
