Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Puri Sunia is a small, intimate resort set in a hollow amongst rice terraces in the rural area north of Ubud. We had an upstairs room which was spacious and airy with a huge comfortable bed. The breakfasts offered plenty of choice and the Balinese coffee was the perfect way to start each day, very strong and very dark, just how coffee should be! But don't worry, other more regular types of coffee are available!

Our week at Puri Sunia was peaceful and restful, the perfect antidote to our stressful city lives. However, what really made our week long stay at Puri Sunia so pleasant was the warmth and friendliness of the staff, all of whom were well presented, polite and courteous. They made the Puru Sunia seem like a home from home.

The only problem we experienced all week was when we returned to our room one afternoon to find that it stank of cigarette smoke. This was due to people smoking on the balcony next door and the smoke drifting into our room through the gap between the bedroom wall and the thatched roof. We turned the air-con on full blast then left the room for an hour and this seemed to clear the air. Fortunately for us, the smokers left after a couple of nights but this is an issue throughout south-east Asia and other countries that have yet to recognise non-smokers' rights.

Puri Sunia is a beautiful resort with outsanding views which truly show the real ubud, nestled amongst the amazing forests and rice terraces the villas are great, we got upgraded to a private pool villa which was excellent! The villa itself is very spacious with a huge bath tub, a perfect way to relax.

What made my stay at Puri Sunia so memorable was the staff. We have never come across staff that genuinely cared about our concerns and would go out their way to make us happy. We were always greeted by any member of staff that we came across, and they also took in regard our certain dietary requirements with food. It was sad to say goodbye to them!

The resort is only a 15 minute drive to Ubud with shuttles every hour, Puri Sunia is a resort which we will never forget thank you for a memorable stay in Bali!

My family stayed 2 nightes in this wonderful resort, luckily we were upgraded to a seperate villa with private swimming pool! The resort is far exceeding my expectation and we wish we could have shortened our stay in Kuta and stayed here longer. The restaurant offers not only delicious but also beautiful food, we all love the breakfast the most. Regarding transportation, It's very convinent to down town by the hotel free shuttel every hour that drop you off at Ubud Place. The resort also provides serveral interesting activities such as Yoga and walking around the village. We chose the 2-hour walking, it's a wonderful experience for us, especially the kid, to know more about local people, local plants and local life. We will miss Puri Sunia.

Room Tip: Seperate villa with private swimming pool, otherwise on 2/F due to the high humidity.

We had a 4 night stay in a ground floor de luxe room 707. Looks beautiful although the ceiling in the bathroom showed a leaking first floor shower patch. Strangely the only opening window was bolted and you could not ventilate at all. The bathroom vent sounded like a starting jet plane and the fridge in the room was also very noisy. So the only option to ventilate was to let the front sliding doors open. With the nice jet lag we went to bed at 9.30 and were nicely asleep when at midnight we got a call from security: please close the sliding doors. Gone sleep. Next night we had the security lock on the doors. Unfortunately again they woke us up: doors not allowed. We were absolutely pissed. There was no sign at all that you were not allowed to leave some ventilation going and you are in the tropics! So I complained and they left us alone the next two nights, but did not offer a real compensation. The next two nights we had a dancing dinosaur in the room on top of us, the floor is tiled and noisy. The breakfast is beautiful but dinner is average. I would advise not to book the ground floor rooms, but maybe they have the same terror regime for the first floor rooms. Be aware!

Room Tip: Do not book ground floor rooms and ask about ventilation!

Located few minutes near of Ubud center, the Puri Sunia resort is located in the middle of picturesque rice fields. We had a lovely time just walking to the nearest village and viewing the luxuriant vegetation and neat rice fields. The resort offers a free hourly shuttle service to Ubud center that comes in very handy if you want to shop, eat or visit Ubud. There are so many things to do in Ubud (the Monkey forest, the traditional dances, the market…)! We were very sad to leave.

Puri Sunia deserves all its rave reviews, it is perfect in every way. We chose this exquisite place, based on TripAdvisor reports, and YES it lived up to every expectation. Including the towels on arrival on our bed, skillfully folded into elephant shapes!
The villas was just gorgeous, so lovely to have traditional built accommodation rather than another boring hotel room. High ceilings, huge comfortable beds. Accommodation is as good as if not better than the Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay (Bali) - which is a 5 Star international standard resort but 4 times the price of Puri Sunia. We cannot wait to return, as we made the mistake of only staying there for 2 nights - it should have been a week! The food is fine Balinese cuisine, sorbets for example between courses. All totally delicious. A varied menu with many choices for a small hotel. Breakfasts were some the best we've ever had we thought.
Staying here has made us realize that we should always stay at smaller boutique hotels.
The staff are just lovely. We have to make a special mention and thanks to Dewa Darma the Manager - congratulations on a truly wonderful and very special resort. And our favourite, delightful "Aca" who should receive an award for being the loveliest staff member we have ever come across in our many years of travel.
We did suggest that better bedside & room lighting was made available, as the lighting was too dim to easily read by in the room.

Room Tip: An upstairs room will be brighter and lighter. The villas are glorious, get one if you can. Each o...

I was so sad when I had to leave this resort. It was perfect! I loved everything about it. The food is delicious!! The staff will go above and beyond to make your stay as best as possible. These are seriously the nicest people I have ever met, and I truly appreciate my time spent here. The front desk will set up anything you want. I highly recommend the cooking class, elephant safari, and cycle tour. I feel very lucky to have chosen this resort. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and comfortable at all times. I hope to return to Bali one day and revisit the friends I have made at Puri Sunia Resort.
