We have just had 5 nights at Alam Shanti - just on the south side of the monkey forest. I can't recommend it highly enough.

We stayed in the Gannga room/suite, with lovely marble bathroom, Balinese features, and deck over looking rice paddies and sports fields. Breakfast delivered to our room and enjoyed on the deck each morning was a highlight.

The Gannga room shares a generous sized pool and well kept pool facilities with one other suite downstairs. So not just yours, but plenty of space so you won't be tripping over each other.

Staff were impressive, friendly and also extremely attentive and discrete. They were also great with our 3 year old, including providing a staff member he was already friendly with to baby sit for a few hours.

The hotel is part of the Alam Indah chain, and I would expect similar high quality from all.

There is a spa on site - I had two massages in the pool side massage rooms. Absolutely delightful, highly professional, and well priced.

Being on the South side of the monkey forest it is a little cut off from the rest of Ubud. This is a good thing - Ubud was crazy with tourists! There are nice shops and restaurants in the village around the hotel and the hotel provides a free shuttle into Ubud. You can taxi back for about 50-70rp, depending on traffic, which can easily take 20 mins to go a very short distance.

Tip- avoid the traffic jams. walk 10 min along the shared use path (scooters and pedestrians) just outside the monkey forest to get to the south end of Ubud. Get a taxi from there or continue on foot. Take a torch for the return trip at night (supplied in your room).

This place is just gorgeous. The grounds are so lovely and peaceful. It really feels like they thought of every detail to make this place as relaxing and authentic as possible.

My room (Shindu) was breathtaking. The terrace, the carvings, the bed...ahhh bliss. The cherry on the cake was my bathroom. It had a fish pond and a fountain in it. A fountain! A fish pond! In my bathroom! My favorite part of Ubud was sitting on my terrace (or even chilling in my private Garden of Eden bathroom) and listening to the frogs ribbit, the fishies splash, and gaze at the lotus floating in the ponds in the moonlight.

The staff are so sweet and accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and they are happy to help make arrangements for you for the shuttle, breakfast, tea, laundry, etc. When my friend left her passport behind, they found it within an hour of us leaving and even looked through the spa bookings to get her email and let her know asap. We really appreciated their diligence in tracking us down.

The location was great for us - a quick 10 min walk on the edge of the monkey forest. This was fine during the day, but at night we opted for the free shuttle or a cheap taxi ride from town to avoid any monkey/moped incidents in the dark.

I could go on and on, but I'll leave it to you to experience your own magic here. Matur suksma, Alam Shanti!

Room Tip: A member of staff took me on a room tour, and I can say that all rooms are special. There is no bad room here.

Alam Shanti is a great place to stay in one of the nicest areas of Ubud, just behind the Monkey Forest. It's a well-run and managed resort. Our room Indus, its bathroom and deck were all large and very well furnished. Breakfast, delivered to our deck each morning, was simple but good. The shuttle service into central Ubud was excellent.
We highly recommend Alam Shanti.

Alam Shanti was the first stop for our family (2 adults and 2 teenage boys) trip around Bali & Lombok.

The hotel was quiet and charming, the staff super friendly and we managed to easily see some of the sights of Ubud (Monkey Sanctuary is next door) by walking. Ubud is super busy with mopeds & cars so it was nice to find a hotel tucked away from the noise and congestion.

We stayed in Yamuna (large room that could cope with all 4 of us) which shared a pool with a neighbouring room. We had views over local rice fields and we particularly enjoyed the open air shower (don't worry it was private).

Thanks for looking after us Alam Shanti

Stayed here from 15-18 July. Cannot fault this place. Super friendly staff, beautiful grounds, great staff. We stayed in laksmi. Everything about this place was wonderful, the rooms, the grounds and the staff. Loved the breakfast on our veranda each morning. We can't wait to come back again, thank you so much :)
