Beautiful, not over bearing just simple traditional and a step into calm.

Dances on in evenings 7:30 get there early if you want a seat. You can get tickets everywhere but on the door is just fine. Cheap, toilet and drinks (simple choice in bottle or can).

Lots of history here, take your time to explore and build understanding.
Amazing stone carvings and decorative door ways.

Enjoy

The Royal Palace Peliatan is not located in the center of Ubud, so not in front of the Ubud market. (Tripadvisor indicates the wrong location) No, it is 7 blocks away (about 1500m, in Desa Peliatan)), but this palace is much nicer. The name Peliatan Royal Palace is not known to the locals, but: Puri Agung Peliatan. Puri Agung Peliatan built in the 17th century, is one of the oldest temples in Bali and one of the many Royal Palaces. If you don’t have a sarong with you, you can rent one for 20k IDR pp, but then you get beautiful (local) clothing. You can partly visit this beautiful palace on the outside. Where the Royal family lives is not public or accessible. Because this palace is still the residence of the local Peliatan Royal Family. The buildings and its interior are amazingly beautiful and look well maintained. We liked it much better than the Royal Palace in Ubud. We received explanations from a friendly female guide, Jasmine. This Royal Palace is a must and definitely worth a visit.Donation only. Strongly recommended!

We have been to Bali three times. One of the best things about being there is attending a Legong Dance, the most outstanding indigenous performing art of the island. This year, we went to the performance at Ubud Palace. I am pleased to say that it was excellent. The dancers were extremely good. The costuming and accompanying gamelan were equally perfect. The performance was traditional and the Ubud Palace was a superb venue. (The last time we went, we attended a performance that featured more avante garde gamelan music and dance which was less enjoyable.) If you are staying in Ubud the palace is bound to be convenient for you. And the price, roughly seven (7!!!) USD is so affordable that it would be a shame if you missed this memorable attraction.

We stopped in here on the way to the ARMA Museum, which is also in Peliatan. While it's just off the main street, it's a far more tranquil setting than you would expect. The architecture is interesting and quite decorative, even when compared to what you might see at some temples. It's probably not worth detouring to see this alone, but if you're in the area it's good to drop in for 10-15 minutes and look around. Admission is free during the day. (I'm sure we would have got a different impression if we'd been coming for a dance performance.)

A very good place to experience balinese culture, decent shopping district nearby,but beware, you might just bump into very agressive street sellers in the market. Has an entrance fee but very much worth it as the lagong dance was very entertaining. Great restaurants nearby with excellent balinese traditional cuisine! If you dont mind the flood of international tourists, its A must visit if you happen to be in Ubud!

It seems that many of the reviews on here get this palace confused with the main palace on Jl. Raya Ubud (Puri Saren Agung), which is located across from the markets. The Peliatan Palace is located on Jl. Cok Gede Rai. About a 2 km walk Southeast from the main one.
It was explained to us that each village has their own palace, so the village of Peliatan has a separate one from the main palace that most people are familiar with.
Accessing the grounds was a little difficult, as the intersection where the palace is located was extremely busy with motorbikes. Far more busy that any of the main areas of central Ubud, and so we had to wait at least 5 minutes before being able to cross.
Once inside, we were greeted by some women creating offerings in one of the shaded areas. They gestured to ask if we would like to visit inside, and we indicated yes. At many temples, you are only required to wear a sarong, but at Peliatan Palace, you must wear the full traditional outfit. For women, this also includes a long-sleeved, lacy blouse called a kebaya. Which was quite hot to put on in the humidity of April. And for the men, a headdress called an udeng. You can pay 20,000 IDR for adults and 10,000 IDR for children to rent these garments for your visit.
Visiting the grounds was lovely, and we spent about 30 minutes being taken around it. While there were many areas of the interior to explore, our guide did not speak much English at all. So she did not understand any of the questions that we asked about the areas.
Instead she seemed to just want to pose around at each of the different areas and take our pictures. This was lovely to have some nice photos to take home, but I had read other reviews that claimed to have gotten great explanations of the grounds. So I was a bit disappointed that we did not get that at all.
If you can get a guide that speaks English, this place is a 5 star experience for sure. Without it, I don't know that I would go out of my way to see it again.

Ubud is a bustling and very busy town with the markets and tourists everywhere. The palace is right in the town centre and worth a look, very busy but great architecture in a small space of multiple courtyards and raised diases for ceremonies. Small in size but very interesting insight into the vanished Royal lifestyle.

This is a great show! If you want to see traditional Balinese dance, don't miss this one. We spend a lot of time in Bali and have never seen a better performance.

The show is on daily at 7.30 pm and tickets can be bought at the gate or from any number of vendors outside. Arrive early enough to get a good seat and make sure your camera or phone is fully charged, because there's quite enough light for good video clips. Make sure you take an umbrella too, if there in rainy season...

The venue couldn't be better - you can hardly upstage a Royal Palace! The dancers are greatly experienced and quite a bit older and more skilled than many hotel performances. I imagine they are all Legong teachers. The Gamelan is a full orchestra and very high calibre. Excellent. Thank you.

Only a small portion of the palace is accessible to the public . so it can be avoided if you are running short of time
