“Absolutely lovely”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Tegal Sari's lived up to its reputation and actually exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed 3 lovely nights in Ubud and wish we had spent more there. The accommodations are clean, beautiful, and comfortable. The super deluxe wooden room overlooking the rice paddies was just magical. Every single personal who works at the Tegal Sari was friendly, always cheerful, helpful, and always greeted us with a smile. It is truly a remarkable staff. The grounds are lovely and the food was delicious. The location is wonderful as I could walk to the Yoga Barn, or stroll all the way into town if I wished. However, they provide free transportation into town as well.

I can't wait to return to Ubud and the Tegal Sari.

Room Tip: Enjoy a $8 massage outdoors next to the pool.

This is my second visit to Tegal Sari and I'm sure it won't be my last.

The property has a variety of very reasonably priced rooms and villas surrounding the rice paddies - most with views. All rooms are very well appointed with comfortable beds and are very clean.

Tegal Sari is located behind the monkey forest, and offers a lovely pool, small gym and massage hut also overlooking the rice paddies,

With rates from AUD $35, Tegal Sari is a wonderful accommodation option to consider.

My second visit to Tegal Sari was just as good as my first. Once you get past the booking process (which can be lengthy and frustrating) everything else seems to run smoothly. Rooms are lovely and mostly have spectacular views (though I also stayed in the room with the private walled garden and found that equally charming though different) and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Though on the bottom floor of one of the super deluxe rooms we did not hear any noise from the upstairs room and the rooms are designed so foliage obscures any view of neighbours. Hotel breakfasts are good value, came to the room promptly and hot parts of the meal were hot on delivery. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is great. Ten-fifteen minutes walk up to the main shops and restaurants of either Monkey Forest Rd or JL Hanoman and if you don't feel like walking in the heat the hotel has a free shuttle service for places in the central part of town (and charge reasonable rates for places further afield). I would come to stay at Tegal Sari again in a heartbeat.

We were picked up at airport with ease and transported up to our accommodation for 4 nights. Straight away we knew this would be the perfect setting for our return to Bali after 15 years.
Staff friendly, breakfast perfect,grounds lovely. Pool beautiful and massages nice. Loved our room number 12. Spacious room, bathroom, bathtub and good size balcony..... No problems with mozzies or insects. (however they do supply citronella oil sticks in room and a mozzie zapper)
To wake up every morning to watch the workers in the rice fields was breathtaking. My husband had his camera in hand constantly over the 4 days as there were plenty of photo opportunities
Great location to monkey forest, and not too far to shops, restaurants etc....Hoping to bring the kids here one day as we will certainly be back. Great value at approx $60 p/night.

The first (2006) few stays -- excellent in all ways, at this special place was with friends then with family, the last been over a couple of years ago now. Still we long very much to come back to spend some time at Tegal Sari, and the magical Ubud; and reading the recent reviews about Tegal Sari's consistency just makes us want to do so even more! notwithstanding it's been knocked off its No.1 spot at TA. Some places are special, and this is definitely one such place for us. So summer holiday '14 we look forward to re-visit and then just do very little but relax, stare at the green paddy fields from the balcony whilst eating goodies from Ibu Oka's, can't wait!

Waking up to the the view of expansive rice fields was a great start to a vacation. We stayed 1 night in a duplex and 3 nights in a super deluxe room and had a great time in both. Everyone at Tegal Sari was genuinely friendly and helpful.

One minor caveat was that since our super deluxe room was on the ground floor, sometimes we had people who had taken a wrong turn look through our windows to realize that they had the wrong room. So I'd recommend a room upstairs for more privacy.

We have been staying at Tegal Sari since 2009 and every year I think it gets even better. This time on holiday with family (hubby and kids 13 and 9) so we stayed in Villa Sesapi - the one with private pool and kitchen and sitting area. Just love staying here. There is enough space for everyone, should you want a quiet moment. The staff at Tegal Sari are so friendly and welcome you back like it's your second home. The staff do lots of duties at the hotel and you are always greeted with a big smile and a hello, how are you today. Ate most of our breakfasts at Warung Semesta - restaurant on Monkey Forest that is connected to hotel. The staff there are also lovely. Wonderful food at Warung Semesta and great spot to sit and watch the rest of Ubud go by. This year we did a visit to the art village of Keliki - Wee our tour guide was great. This really gave us an idea of how the 'average' Balinese people live. Continue to realise just how lucky we are in Australia. Visted an artist, whose work is apparently very popular in Europe - lovely man who showed us the intricacies of Balinese painting. We all had a go painting in some of his drawings. Then our guide took us for a walk through the rice paddies. A local man working in the fields offered to climb up and grab us a coconut! Our guide then quickly opened it up and produced straw for us to sample - tasted great. The thing I really liked about this trip was as we were walking back to our pick up location our guide stopped and planted a tree. Wee said every time he brings someone on the walk he plants a trip (courtesy of Tegal Sari) and then proceeded to point out ALL the trees he has planted - there were LOTS of them. Good on Tegal Sari for doing this and keeping Bali green. Kids also did the make your own kite, helped by the fellows from Tegal Sari - they all had a ball and then spent a couple of hours our in the rice paddies flying them.

What else can I say about Tegal Sari that all the other reviews here have not already said, it's a wonderful place to stay, location great, service impeccable, food outstanding, staff so welcoming, accommodation fantatic - don't want to rave anymore as it's getting harder to book when we want than ever! Already booked for next year as we know that the word is getting out and more and more people are finding this little piece of heaven in Ubud. And a message for Ketut - hope you like this review too :)

Room Tip: Book early otherwise you won't get in when you want too !
