“Authentic charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

The three of us, including our 7 months baby, could find a peaceful place in busy Ubud. The hotel is beautifully decorated and entirely reflects the beauty of the balinese architecture and style.
The pool villa where we stayed made us feel at home and offered total privacy.

The service was excellent and particularly friendly and discreet at the same time and the manager and the staff made it all to satisfy our requests and helped a lot with the baby showing a lot of flexibility.

The breakfast is a la carte and good, and set up in a peaceful al fresco just in front of the main road.

We did not have the time to try the SPA but it looked inspiring.

If back to Ubud we will no doubt go back there.

Room Tip: There is no fitness gym but a nice pool

We stayed at Barong Resort & Spa for 3 nights in August 2012. We've stayed in a number of different 'accommodations' in Ubud over the last 5 years and couldn't really fault this place. We booked through Lastminute.com whilst staying on Gili Trawangan Island near Lombok and it took a couple of phone calls to convince reception that they did indeed have accommodation available for 3 nights according to the website....little frustrating! This place is located right on Monkey Forest rd, right in the middle of all the action which is good if that's what you want and we couldn't hear any traffic noise. Bear in mind that it now costs approx 5AUS to get a taxi/driver to take you to any resorts (one-way) on the outskirts of Ubud and that can add up over a week. Some offer free shuttle buses but not always convenient and sometimes you just want to choose where you eat and not be stuck at a resort out of town. Enjoyed the pool at Barong, some rooms have their own private plunge pools, the breakfasts were good and they are building a new spa which looks very nice. Staff were pleasant and rooms were well serviced. Agree with another reviewer that the television is only Indonesian channels and it's too dark to read in the rooms at night. This place doesn't rock your socks off but you can't beat the convenient location.

I stayed here for a couple of nights in November 2011, while attending a friend's wedding at another resort.

Upon arrival, I realized that I had apparently gone and booked a whole villa for myself by mistake via a deal on the Trip Advisor website, but what a fortuitous (and not-too-expensive) mistake it turned out to be. Although the hotel is right smack on a busy major road, I was lucky that the room was set back far enough from all the traffic noise and it really felt like resort-living indeed. The room even came complete with a little personal swimming pool with a fountain within a walled compound with a wooden latched door. The four-poster bed with mosquito netting was comfy, and the bathroom had a little sunken tub/shower area. 2 bottles of drinking water were also provided daily.

The only issue I had with my stay here was that the food was really not very good. It would be far more wothwhile to check out the food options along Jalan Monkey Forest or Jalan Hanoman instead. The daily breakfasts included with the booking were monotonous - I would recommend choosing the Indonesian chicken rice porridge 'burbur ayam' over the rather dried out and not particularly tasty approximations of "Western" eggs-and-ham, and tooth-achingly sweet juices. The other down-sides of staying here were that the TV only had programs in Bahasa Indonesia (no cable) and the room was rather dark, so trying to read in place of watching TV was not really an option. The staff were helpful enough but English was not their strongest point and communication was a stretch. Although they were OK with booking a taxi to the airport for me, it seemed cheaper to get one off the street, and the staff had even suggested that I book a taxi myself from any of the guys touting near the tourist hot-spots the night before my flight. This felt like a bit of a risk since I had no way of knowing if the (different) guy who showed up with a random car the next morning was 'legit', but I did make my flight..

The location of Barong Resort nearer the Monkey Forest end of Jalan Monkey Forest made it easy to walk around e.g. to the cafes and shops along Jalan Hanoman, the museums and Ubud market. The hotel is worth checking out... but with the sheer variety of (and competition / deals from) similar hotels in the area , you would not be missing out on too much if you decided to stay elsewhere however. If I were to visit Ubud again, I would not mind coming back here if I was with a bunch of friends, but I'd probably like to have a go at the other hotels in the area.

Stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 weeks and we both loved the experience. Spacious, well designed, spotlessly clean and very private villa. Excellant staff with attention to detail and everyone at Barong was always very helpful. The only negative experience at all was that the Wi-Fi reliability was terribly frustrating, but i did not deduct from my "excellant" rating because i am assuming and hopefully so because we intend to return to Barong again that they will fix this very serious problem soon. A young trainee at the reception desk Gede Loca Pala was always very helpful and so were the others who worked reception. I love this hotel and look forward to returning.

The Barong resort was lovely and peaceful, a great oasis away from the busy streets outside. we had a bungalow so we had our own little garden which was great and very private

The room was clean and spacious and the pool really refreshing, definitely something you need in the heat of Ubud!

Great location!

Stayed here for a couple of nights - the room was large, clean and tastefully decorated. Good food, nice pool and spa facilities. Quiet and very well located too.

this is a small hotel with 11-ish rooms (if i remember correctly from the staff). Thus the services they offer are pretty personalized because it is easy for them to remember the guests.

We had good experience in this hotel for 6 days as we spent our time around Ubud. Room was always clean and tidy. The cleaning lady came twice a day to 1)clean the room 2)make the bed for the night. Privacy is very well kept as each room has a private small yard with door. Breakfast was very nicely prepared and ingredients felt fresh (even if only few guests are having breakfast as it is a small hotel).
