Bali Spirit Hotel and Spa

The Bali Spirit is in set on the side of the river and blends in with the garden, plants , trees and water features that abound on the property.
The rooms were very clean and well presented with many being recently renovated. The bathrooms and kitchenette area are all new.
The pool is set next to the river and is very well presented and looks great.
The staff were very helpful and extremely welcoming. It is not the place to go if you want wild night life or loud music etc as the theme of Bali Spirit is about taking it easy and slowing down.
The restaurant was good and he food was as good as most in Ubud, the Indonesia selection gado gado and nasi goring were delicious.
The prices are in keeping with the other restaurants in the area.
The free shuttle into Ubud runs a number of times during the day. We uses a
We caught it into Ubud and walked back. It is only about a 15 min walk from the monkey forest.
There area number of restaurants nearby (just across the road from the entrance) about a 5 min walk.
We had no complaints what so ever and really enjoyed our stay there. We will return again.
The only concern would be for anyone with a mobility problem as there a lots of steps as the hotel is built on the side of the river back.

Bali Spirit is tucked in off the main streets and noise of central Ubud. It sits high on the hilltop and overlooks a fast moving river(and the occasional nude bather). The steps to the coffee shop and breakfast area are many but a nice stroll through the gardens.

We stayed in the Rama Site rooms 8&9. This is a suite set up that consists of 2 very large rooms and an adjoining outdoor living area. This has been recently refurbished to a very good standard. The hotel in general is clean and well kept.

Room Tip: Our suite set up was perfect.

I just stayed here for 4 nights in a river villa, loved it, and am already planning my next trip back. Bali spirit truly is a feast for the senses, it's a luscious paradise tucked into a steep hillside leading down to a river, which to our surprise was very well used by the locals for fishing, naked bathing and toileting (if you are prudish or easily offended this may not suit). The grounds are amazing, filled with tropical plants and mossy statues. As the terrain is so steep there are many steps to negotiate, so absolutely not suitable for those with walking difficulties or anyone unfit. The staff are beautiful, friendly and accommodating, particularly our driver Agung.The food was excellent with a good mix of balinese and western style dishes, I'd recommend the spanish omelette for breakfast and the fish fillet in banana leaves with Balinese spices. The spa treatments are more expensive than out of hotel, but you pay for the convenience. A few people have mentioned the geckos, some are quite big and they can be noisy, but they are harmless and have a certain charm, remember you are in the middle of the tropics in ubud, be prepared for lots of wildlife, insect repellent is your friend! The whole experience was very rustic and real and so pleasurable, and for the price incredible value. Don't come here expecting luxury, but if you have a sense of adventure and an open heart, you will love it.

We had 2 great nights at the Bali Spirit.
The hotel is laid out on a hilly riverside location, we had a river villa on two floors which was clean, huge and wonderful complete with outside shower room and loo!
For nature lovers this is a great place, its far removed from 5 star "posh" hotels but has a charm and laid back feel that i have not had anywhere else.
No good for people who cannot get up steps easily.
Great Pool.
Lovely Food.
Excellent Staff.
Amazing cheap prices.
TIP - Get a full body massage at the spa - Wonderful and done by trained staff, $22 for an hour - Top Quality and very cheap.
We will definitely return!

Room Tip: If you can do Steps get a river villa and sleep with nature!

If you want to rest and relax on your trip to Bali, Ubud is the place. There are many hotels providing rest and relax environment in Ubud area, and our choice fell to this hotel.
The atmosphere is what we expected: quiet, surrounded by lush green tropical "forest" and sounds of trickling water.

The room itself is clean, though it looked old, it has a balcony with two chairs and a table where you can sit and read outside the room or just relaxing and enjoying open air.
Shower room is also clean, but the wall is not built to the top, so there is a possibility that some small "intruders" may enter. In our case, there was a big gecko invited itself to stay at the back of our bathroom door :-). We phoned a hotel staff to remove it outside, though, so that we may shower in peace :p. When it is raining, it is advisable to close all doors/windows, because there may be many more intruders (certain flying insects, for example) join you in the bed room.

Bali spirit has a pickup and drop off service to Ubud center area about 5 times a day. However, it is a good experience to walk by foot alongside the Monkey Forest. It is not that far to Ubud center, maybe only about 2-3 km.
We only stay for two nights, but it is a very nice stay. Thank you, Bali Spirit :-).

As a family seeking more authentic experiences in quieter accommodation, we were delighted with our experience at the Bali Spirit. As arranged, a driver met us at Denpasar airport. We were pleased to be back off the road and the traffic noise. The shuttle bus made trips into town easy Our 2 storey river villa was not brand new but gave us great views of the river and pool. The king bedtime was incredibly comfortable! In true Balinese style, the staff aimed only to please. When an extremely noise gecko took up residence in the main bedroom and disturbed our sleep night after night, we were offered a delightful room upgrade to solve our wildlife challenge. We travelled with two teenage girls who loved the hotline, especially the pool. We would happily stay again.

Room Tip: Beware the stairs! if you have mobility issues, stay in the rooms closer to the reception and order...

Perfect for a quiet, relaxing holiday with excellent service. Beautiful gardens with many statues. Emerald room huge and well equipped - sitting room, king size bed, tea/coffee making area, in-room safe, new bathroom. Pleasant swimming pool, good restaurant. Some steps to negotiate between reception and all rooms. Cheap laundry service. Situated outside Ubud but free shuttle into Ubud and back. Only downside: no other restaurants or bars within walking distance. All the staff were very helpful and provided outstanding service. A clean hotel too!

Room Tip: .Emerald room.
