“Excellent location and hotel with beautiful sourroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

This hotel is impressive. The design and landscaping of the swimming pool area looking out over the valler and rice paddies beyong is breathtaking. We stayed in a villa with a private pool. The villa was spacious and clean with a large very comfortable bed. The villa had no privacy though and staff could walk right up to the door of the bedroom without knocking. There was a lovely outside shower which I would have lovedto use but couldn't due to the lack of privacy.
The service was good. Breakfast was a bit disappointing - especially the presence of canned fruits. Shame since Ubud is a tropical paradise where fresh fruit is so abundant.
I would definitely return to this hotel but would request a more private villa.

Room Tip: Ask for a villa with private entrance

This resort is just amazing! It looks like an old temple and it feels like you have fallen into a videogame or something unreal. It's great when it's sunny but when it's raining it sort of suits the whole environment and it's just great to watch the views from your room or the restaurant. Location is prefect. Rooms are great with nice views. Bed is great. Bathroom amazing with a very large tub (me and my boyfriend fitted in there easily and we are quite tall - 180cm and 190cm) Staff is very friendly. Food was good, breakfast very nice as well.

Only downside, they where having constructions done right under our villa. They 'only' started at 7.30 and stopped at 4.30. I paid quite some money for a private pool so we could relax in privacy, but now couldn't because of the noise. On the other hand the renovation works are welcome because the resort could use some updating. So go when constructions are over or ask for a room far away from it.

Also, the spa staff wasn't really friendly and quite rough (even after asking for a lighter pressure), but I like it REALLY soft.

Overall a spectacular resort!

Room Tip: Private pool not per se necessary for the main pool is not that occupied. Resort was fully booked wh...

Our three night stay at this Resort was very relaxing indeed. We were treated to a villa with our own private swimming pool, complete with a fantastic bed. (We were told the villa had only been built a year ago.) Only disappointment with the villa was there were no comfortable chairs to lounge around in! All the staff we encountered were very helpful with our requests. Although the Resort itself is very old, we had everything we needed to make for a relaxing stay. Beware the walk and stairs to breakfast ...great way to walk off what you indulge in, though we did notice some people relied on being picked up by the resort staff in a golf cart. Although a 10 minute drive to the centre of Ubud, there was a shuttle bus provided by the hotel every 2 hours, or you could pay 50,000 Rupiah for a one way fare and then negotiate a taxi back from Ubud for much the same.

Room Tip: To completely relax and enjoy the Payogan experience, I'd suggest treating yourself to a one bed...

We recently returned from a 3 night stay at the Payogan. We stayed in Villa 301, a one bedroom with an infinity pool. The room was very spacious, and clean and the view was breath taking. Upon our arrival, we checked in with Dian. I mentioned to her that our luggage did not make it to our destination. She went above and beyond and worked very hard with the airline to locate our luggage and was successful. As for the rest of the staff, we could not have been better accommodated. Our driver Wayan, was always there for us and was very knowledgeable. He took us to various places around Ubud, showed us the volcano and the coffee plantation.
The spa was beautiful, with an amazing view, and friendly staff. The grounds are very lush but very well maintained.
I would highly recommend this resort,as the staff and the beautiful villa we stayed in made our stay perfect!!

We came and stayed at The Payogan for our honeymoon. Our room was large, clean, tidy and modern. We were given complimentary fruit on arrival and there was a heart made of rose petals on our bed. Staff were friendly and polite. Food was very good and the restaurant overlooked a stunning infinity pool, with an included swim-up bar. A taxi driver for the company drove us around for the 5 days we were there. He was very knowledgeable and showed us around the village where The Payogan is located. A great place to stay in Ubud. Thank you to all the staff at The Payogan.

Absolutely fantastic, seriously. Perfect. When we arrived to the hotel our breath was taken away by the view and the gorgeous main building and we continued to be impressed over and over again. The staff was so welcoming and just absolutely fantastic, seriously I can't compliment them enough, especially Yan!! Did I mention how awesome the staff is?!
We were upgraded from a room to a villa because they had spare ones that hadn't been booked (how nice is that?!) and it was GORGEOUS! The kind of villa you see in travel documentaries, with its own infinity pool and a view overlooking the rice fields and a huge outdoor bathtub for two (since I was just there with my buddy we used it as a hot tub since it was rainy during our stay!).
The restaurant is admittedly just okay, meals were included with our booking through our travel agent so we ate there a ton and it was solidly good and very convenient, but if we had had to pay for the food we probably would have eaten out. The spa was beautiful and very very good! You can find far cheaper services in the town for sure, but we never found an overall atmosphere that beat that of Payogan's spa, and it still wasn't that expensive. As a tip I would say that when you are out during the day and coming back in the evening, close the curtains and don't leave the lights on - it will attract a lot lot lot of bugs. We learned our lesson the first day and after that once we closed everything up during the day we had practically no bugs the rest of our stay.
Those minor things were literally the only "downsides" of our stay, it was the best hotel experience I have ever had and I would love to go back again!!
As a side note, Ubud is an amazing little city with awesome shopping (make sure you barter for a third of the price and they will come down to about half price of what they quoted you at first - common practice). The sights are fantastic and we enjoyed the authentic atmosphere way more than when we went to Seminyak and Ulutwatu. I have heard people leave Bali with a definite opinion of the best spot to stay and I found it is true - If I ever get to come back I am an Ubud girl all the way!!

A village with ages but still charm by the old day glory.
The villa is large with a private pool, comfortable and quiet.
The stuff and house keeping maid are helpful.
We enjoyed the dinner with candles at the villa pool, and the massage in the room.
Every villa has a private pool with different size and shade, I think I was lucky to own a perfect one.
