“Beautiful Place, Beautiful People”

After being served a delicious breakfast each morning, you can take off to see the sights of Ubud. I had a push bike organised for me by the staff so that was a great way to see the place, drop into yoga classes, join the festivities then return home to take a nice long swim in the pool before heading out for dinner. It's a place to rest, re-charge, re-balance and revitalise yourself. The staff will make sure you are very well looked after and they can't do enough to help you out! Check it out, you'll love it!

My husband and I stayed at Desa Sanctuary for 3 nights for our 1 year anniversary before heading to the islands. Didi was absolutely wonderful during the weeks prior to our trip arranging airport pick-up, sending links to restaurants for us to try while we were there, and answering any questions we had. We stayed in the Rumma Tinggi which was perfect for us because it afforded us some privacy. It is a little ways walk from town, but we had no problem making the walk every day. It's super cheap to arrange a taxi though. Staff was lovely and attentive - we will definitely return!

Situated among a local kampung, this little gem is amazing.

Service was excellent, atmosphere was peaceful and near to Ubud Market.
Easy access to restaurants, supermarkets, art galleries etc.

If you don't mind staying a little further down the road (we didn't) then you will totally love this place. It is a sanctuary for sure. The staff was excellent. Food was very good for breakfast but the staff will also order out for dinner and pick it up! The Yoga Barn is within walking distance. I would suggest renting a scooter for your stay however. They are usually about $40 a week and totally worth it. The streets can be a bit narrow for walking. Bali is really not a good place for jogging either. But there are fitness clubs if you like to run like I do... You cannot go wrong for the price here but you will need to get the logistics together a bit.

The service was impeccable. We had 'room service' from restaurants outside. Desa Sanctuary attendants were great. We could let them know what food we wanted from different restaurants nearby and they would be happy to get them for us.
That was the highlight of our stay.

I stayed at Desa Sanctuary earlier this year and I loved it. The staff are very welcoming and sweet and will do anything to help you. I stayed in two different bungalows while I was there, both were lovely. Very homely, rustic feel, lots of wood and nice art etc and very clean beds and lovely bathrooms with outdoor style showers. The rooms had kitchen facilities too which was great. I felt very at home there. The sanctuary is full of amazing greenery and you feel so relaxed as soon as you get there. It's like sleeping in a rainforest. The pool was lovely and refreshing and the breakfast included was simple and delicious, like banana pancakes! what a luxury! Location wise it was nice because it is a good 15 minute walk to the main town area so it feels a bit more secluded and quiet. Of course you can always hop on a motor bike and be in town in 2 mins but I enjoyed the walk past the interesting stalls along the way. The sanctuary has good security, with a man at the gate and locks on all the doors and windows. I felt that myself and my belongings were very secure. Particularly because it is such a small place and there are always a few staff around to keep an eye on things. It was a very special and restful place and I would highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to do the usual 'hotel' thing and who just really want to feel secluded and relaxed. I thought it was good value for money too.

Loved staying here in March. Just a little too far for a quick walk to Ubud, but not too bad. Clean rooms. Very helpful staff.
