“Construction is noisy”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

This is a beautiful resort set on the slope of the valley - if you are fit you can handle the stairs up and down to your room but otherwise you'll need to be calling the guy in the buggy to drive you around the resort all the time. We were upgraded from a basic room to a pool villa and it was stunning....but next to where a road is being built so we were woken by the escavator every morning and the workers can see into your villa. The shuttle into ubud is very handy but if you don't make the 10 o'clock your only option is to have lunch at the resort. If you do make the 10 shuttle you are pretty much stuck in Ubud for 4.5 hrs which can be too long when the heat is stifling. The staff were really nice and the food at the resort is excellent.

I have to agree with some of the previous reviews...... One is exposed to the elements. It is a great serene place but you will be living with geckos and bats on your roof as they continuously do number 1 and 2's all day/ night long. The place could be much more cleaner but there is always that shortfall of cheap Bali labour which don't really care as long as they do there job. Don't bother about drinking at the bar either because of the untrained bar staff not knowing how to properly mix drinks that you pay top prices for. WATCH OUT FOR THE 21% TAX ON EVERYTHING AS WELL! You are better off taking the free shuttle to Ubud and drinking there which don't slug you the ridiculous tax. Also, don't tip in this resort because 11% of that 21% tax is the service charge so do not tip....... Breakfast is bland and boring, pool towels smell musky, and please don't ask them recommendations of where to eat or have massages. You are better off doing your own homework. The staff are very polite, helpful, and of course with the right price will do almost anything for you except give you a discount hehehee. If you are staying here it is a pricey place if you stay and eat, drink, and spa here. Renovations at the hotels start very early in the morning till afternoon so don't expect to sleep in. I recommend Jazz Cafe in Ubud to eat and drink for dinner which will pick u up and drop u off and also Induh restaurant which will do the same. Don't eat or drink in this place...... Spend your hard earned elsewhere....... Recommended for nature lovers, not newly weds or honeymooners.

It was everything we wanted and more....absolutely breathtaking so green and picturesque, like stepping into another world we felt like royalty. We especially enjoyed the hot stone massage which we shared in a double spa suit looking over the valley which concluded with a herb bath. The staff were so lovely and extra helpful....which made for a trip we are very grateful for.

What a wonderful place to stay with drop jaw scenery and gorgeous gardens. The Payogan Villa Resort and Spa is pure indulgence for every minute of our holiday. We couldn't ask for more.
This was my 4th visit to Bali and I wanted to stay in the mountains away from the bustle of Kuta, where I knew the climate was cooler and kinder, but still in a location where we could access the shopping of Ubud. I couldn't have chosen a better spot or better service and food. The staff and service was terrific and concern for our welfare was notable from the first moment of entering the gates.
As this was a surprise 60th birthday gift for my husband the catering staff also came on board with a chocolate black forest cake, Yummy,Yummy Yummy. Our accommodation was beautiful, large and exceptionally clean, and well maintained providing everything that Bali has to offer and we were very privileged to stay in both a garden villa and a pool villa. I felt totally indulgent as one of our days we had a top to toe massage, swim in our private pool, followed by prawns for lunch with Verve champagne and brilliant company of close friends. We ate at the restaurant each night after happy hour at the swim up bar with a delightful bar man to help with our special requests, like two cherries and our version of Black Russians.My favourite dish on the menu was the BBQ spare ribs but if I don't have to cook it, then all the dishes were great.
It may have only been 6 nights but I can't wait until I do it again, somewhere in the future.
I highly recommend this accommodation to those who love Bali and beautiful gardens and terrific service.

It's everything you expect when you ask for a villa close to nature. The view is jaw dropping. The service puts a smile on our faces every time. The room is spotless and fit for royalty. A must visit if you want a peaceful stay in gorgeous Ubud

We stayed at Payogan Resort with another couple and were hoven a very warm welcome. Our first impressions were WOW! The ambience was wonderful and the scenery fantastic. We were both booked into garden villa rooms, romantic four poster extremely comfortable bed-luxurious indoor/outdoor garden bathroom with sunken bath. The villa was very spacious. Bottled water supplied and if we wanted more we only had to ask. Our air conditioner could have been better in this room but our friends air con certainly worked well. Because of a double booking (I think) we were asked if we would mind staying fot 2 nights at their sister hotel Champlung Sari on Monkey Forest Rd, Ubud (very good location but rooms not as good) then we went back and were given upgrades to luxurious villas with private pools, out door Bali day beds, beautiful walled gardens for total privacy (& the air con was fantastically cool!)
I would give 5 stars for how the staff cheerfully looked after our every need. We ate our evening meal at the resort every night, very tasty, especially the Crispy Duck (my favourite) and at a great price, the buffet breakfast was really good too! We all loved 'happy hour' at the swim up bar and the barman did a great job making our favourite cocktails and was good to chat to.
Staff arranged an excellent driver for us (Made) who took us on amazing drives and was more than happy to take us where ever we wanted at a great negotiated price.
The spa was 'heaven' great value for $$ and I would highly recommend the 'top to toe' pamper package, great way to finish the stay!
Wayan looked after us personally and made sure we were satisfied and very happy with our stay, he even took my husband on his own motor bike to buy a motor bike helmet!
Overall I would highly recommend staying here. If you are looking to relax want to be in a quieter & cooler area (but still close to great shopping and fantastic tourist sights) the Payogan Resort & Spa is the place to stay.

I stayed in Payogan Ubud for 2 nights during september 2012, I stayed in Valley view private pool villa and it was amazing except for the insects, but I think it is not about the hotel it's about Ubud itself, The pool was so nice and the view was amazing, but the open area in the bathroom is a mistake as it is letting insects in the bathroom I have to say that staying two or three nights in Ubud while visiting Bali is a must, go rafting and go to the Bali Zoo or Safari while in Ubud.
