“So peaceful and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The Alam Shanti is the most amazing place to relax. We stayed at the Shindu villa accommodation, which has all the comforts of home and the staff takes care of you at any time when you need them. The staff are friendly, competent and helpful. The main pool area is amazing and the local wildlife is extraordinary. You can take your complimentary afternoon tea and early evening cocktails in various settings and the quality of all meals is excellent. We really enjoyed the Kecak Dance evening at Leke Leke and we felt the experience was very authentic. The unique setting of this small resort is truly magical. The staff deserve a special mention as they took a personal interest in ensuring you had a wonderful stay.
Thank you for a wonderful experience - world class and exceeded our expectations
Will return in the future :)))

Nothing to complain about. Stunning location and incredible service. Will go back in a heartbeat...rooms were beautiful, pool perfect and service incredibly friendly. Also went to the spa which is on site and had an excellent massage, although the price we paid didn't seem to be the one they were advertising, so only comment would be to check what it will cost before booking, but that it is a tiny quibble and was still very cheap...

Room Tip: All good, as far as I could see...

We returned to this piece of paradise and were happy to discover that our memories had not let us down. Surrounded by greenery, a wonderful breakfast, traditional decor and warm staff. The pool area was a place to cool down and read whole surrounded by serenity. We stayed in the house by the rice paddies and listened to the frogs at night and had a great view of the New Year's Eve fireworks.

This complex is out of the town of Ubud but a shuttle bus or a walk through or around the Monkey Forest means that the many restaurants and shops are not far away.

On our last day my daughter and I enjoyed time at the spa and we had a cooking class one day too. Both of these activities I'd happily recommend to everyone :)

We also had a thieving monkey so keep valuables inside, and behind closed doors, he stole, and enjoyed, fruit and a whole packet of biscuits. Clever thing was also able to turn on the taps to get a drink.

Room Tip: There are a great variety of rooms on the property. Different prices and sizes will help make choice...

Just far enough. We hired a moped (very very cheap from near Alam Shanti) to zip around Ubud and miles and miles beyond, on we parked up right outside Purwati. Our accommodation was delightful, in the middle of a rice field, where the monkeys would rock up while we were having breakfast and occasionally be a bit cheeky and take a piece of fruit from the table, we saw the odd guest now and again in reception on our way out, but other than that it felt like we had the place to ourselves although obviously we didn’t. We liked it here and could totally understand why it gets great reviews; we would have preferred a shower to the huge sunken bath that took forever to fill but that our only was minor issue. We would stay here again and tell our friends to as well. Nice touches were breakfast brought across the rice field to our accommodations for us to enjoy on the veranda, and if were were there in the afternoon, tea and cake would appear.

We stayed in the Purwati room which is the downstairs room overlooking the rice fields. We loved our room however would definitely try and get in earlier next time to try an grab an upstairs room, as many of them had large, private decks.

As mentioned by other reviewers, we had the lovely pool to ourselves most days. We loved the breakfast and found it to be more than ample in amount.

We caught the shuttle into town for dinner most nights and a cab back. As all Alam properties are well known, taxis never had a problem finding it.

Alam indah is literally 2 minutes down the road closer to the monkey forest and also looks amazing.

Only downside was the height of the shower head in our room. You could not stand up and use which was a little annoying.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms look amazing

We stayed in the Sarasvati room, wonderful! Second floor of a villa and a private oasis. Clean, comfortable and relaxing. Staff were amazing, so friendly. Afternoon tea and breakfast brought to our balcony (huge!) every day. Lots of choice with food. Highly reccommended, there is a reason you have to book so far in advance! We finally got to stay here after booking 9 months in advance! Great location, so much to see and explore in Ubud. Highly reccommend booking a motorbike (if comfortable doing so) to explore the local villages and surrounding temples.A short 10 minute walk into Ubud from the hotel, but they also provide a free shuttle service. Stay here for a true taste of Bali.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sarasvati room, very private and quiet!

This was our second stay at Alam Shanti and it was great both times. The grounds are gorgeous and immaculate, with frog and lily ponds and private trails to the rooms. The room was luxury with outdoor bathroom and private waterfall and pond in the shower area, the staff fabulous, the breakfast wonderful, and the location was near the center of Ubud but away far enough for quiet and solitude.

Room Tip: second floor has the best view but all the rooms are gorgeous
