“Oasis of calm and luxury”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I booked this place for 4 nights over my birthday, and could have easily stayed here longer.
We stayed in the lovely Frangipani room - a 4 poster bed, crisp cotton sheets and sliding doors opening out to the pool. The rooms were cleaned daily and our bed turned down each evening, when a 'bedtime story' was left for us (a passage explaining local traditions).
The staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was yummy - recommmend the indonesion breakfast and banana pancakes! They even gave me a cake an sang happy birthday.
This place is slightly out of Ubud, but it's no problem as they have a free shuttle service at 10am, 1pm and 4pm, and are also happy to take you into town for dinner at 6:30pm. If these times don't suit you can catch a cab for 50000.. Just take a map!
We will definitely stay again - thank you

We had a chance to stay in this lovely Villa at the end of our two week roundtrip in Bali and we only hope we could have stayed there longer. We arrived late in the afternoon but the driver took us anyway to Ubud centre after the last shuttle had already gone. The Lotus room vas spacious and well equipped with both indoor and outdoor showers. The pool was great with service. The feeling was quite intimate since there are only a few rooms in the entire hotel. The breakfast was perfect and we enjoyed it enjoying of company of other guests staying at the same time. The service was excellent and discreet. Ubud itself was very interesting but unfortunately our stay was so short that we didn't actually have a chance to see enough. If we ever shall return to Bali we would most certainly return also to Villa Saraswati.

Room Tip: The Lotus room is very spacious and have plenty of room for two. It has a with walk-in wardrobe - a...

We just returned from Ubud and can't stop thinking about our next stay at Villa Saraswati!
This majestic villa feel like a home away from home. We really didn't want to leave. Dean and Robyn (and of course Komang and staff) made us feel welcomed and relaxed. The villa is spotless, the rooms amazing and service was above and beyond our expectations. I've never written a tripadvisor review but I felt compelled to recommend. Don't let the short distance from Ubud center deter you. If anything, it makes this stay even more magical.

Thanks You Robyn and Dean and staff for making our short stay so amazing. We can't wait to see you again!

Room Tip: All rooms are great. It really doesn't matter. You can't miss out. We stayed at the Lotus wh...

Spent 4 glorious nights in this beautiful spacious villa. The location is magical in the village of Payagon. Staff are delightful, breakfast was awesome and Dean and Robin are great hosts. Saraswati is a gem!

Our stay was, in many respect, akin to staying with friends at their villa... except we had to pay for the privilege! (LoL).
Seriously though, Dean & Robyn (supported by their staff) did their very best to meet our needs and wishes. Above all, they were a very pleasant, sociable and approachable couple who enjoyed interacting with their guests. The service from the staff was attentive, discreet and courteous.
The setting was rather enchanting, tranquil and secluded and the whole place felt very spacious and elegant.
We slept in the 'Peacock' which we were quite happy with.
'Saraswati' is indeed a boutique gem with genuine 5 star quality.

Villa Saraswati is a place where you can really get a taste of Bali in the most luxurious surroundings. The Villa is in the wonderful village of Payagon, 14 Minutes by car from Ubud centre. We were lucky enought to be there when Dean & Robyn where there, they, with the wonderful staff are only too happy to tell you all the best things to do in Ubud. The breakfast is amazing as is the attention to detail that is Villa Saraswati. Every time we sat by the pool the staff were there asking us if we need a cup of tea coffee or drink, the tea would arrive in the most beautiful bone china, I abousoulty loved our stay, and would recommend the Villa to anyone, Robyn & Dean are the most generous of hosts, Thanks for a wonderful stay, Tess & Leigh Sydney

Great ambiance,wonderfully hospitable hosts, attentive and helpful staff with a homestay atmosphere yet having privacy or opportunity to meet and share communally with travellers from may parts of the world. Our room (Frangipani) was one of cheaper rooms and was just beautiful. We saw the other rooms and they all had own character and very spacious and luxurious. Breakfasts were wonderful, pool inviting, and local villagers welcoming.
