The staff at Saren Indah were so friendly and really did everything they could to make us feel comfortable and welcome. When we arrived they gave us a delicious refreshing welcome drink and gave us information on what time breakfast was, where our hotel was situated and the free shuttle into Ubud centre. It made us feel like we were in good hands!
The room was really nice with the towels made up into bird shapes on the bed with rose petals scattered in the bath. Free water and shampoo and toothbrushes were provided which was handy!
Waking up and walking down to breakfast was so nice as the staff were so friendly and very happy to see us and they were very open to chatting with us! The breakfast itself was nice with a buffet layout of fresh fruit, toast, pastries, cereal, noodles, rice and bacon and the choice of either cooked eggs or pancake. I wasn't the biggest fan of the egg, I got poached and when they served it on the toast the water made the bread really soggy! My friends got the omelet and didn't like it so we converted to eating the pancake which was good :) They also offered coffee or tea and a fresh made juice of your choice which was super refreshing!
The complimentary dinner was good, they usually offer a set menu but we ordered not from that by accident and they were fine with it. My advice would be to steer clear from the Western food, we ordered pizza and pasta and while the pizza was alright, the pasta was not good - it tasted as if they had used squeezey tomato sauce as pasta sauce! So stick to the Indonesian food!
The pool was really nice with towels provided and the bar was really good, the bartender was super friendly and all the cocktails were delicious and reasonably priced!
The free shuttle was so good, meaning we could go into Ubud centre without having to catch a taxi each time, however it leaves from the hotel every two hours so you have to plan your outing around that which isn't too much of a hassle. When we were ready to come back to the hotel we simply gave the staff of where we were the Saren Indah card and they would call for the shuttle to come pick us up!
Overall I would have to say I really enjoyed staying at Saren Indah and it is hard for me to find any negatives. I would definitely recommend it - it's not a luxury 5 star hotel but it's very clean, really nice rooms and the staff are super friendly and helpful! If I were to go back to Ubud, I would definitely stay at Saren Indah again!
