We stayed at the Surya Shanti for 2 nights as part of our 10-day honeymoon in Bali. We went for top-notch accommodation in Seminyak and Ubud and we made the trip to Sidemen (which was out of our way), just to stay at this property. And we certainly did not regret it! We stayed in Agung 2, which had beautiful panoramic views and lovely communal outdoor space enjoying a wonderful breeze. Any of the Agung villas are beautiful but the top rooms have the most spectacular views. We also had a look at a couple of other rooms and could not fault them, although the Agung ones are more special. The staff were very friendly and gracious and even prepared us a honeymoon cake and petal bath. Gede - who works at reception - made our stay memorable. He is very charming and we wish him the very best :)
Couple of things to mention... There is a 3% credit card charge and there are no ATMs in walking distance so unless you have plenty of cash, be ready to incur the extra charge.
When we were there the villas were not full, so it was very tranquil and relaxing. However, the space around the 2 pools is rather limited so we think that if the place is full it will get rather cosy.
Lastly, the food that we tasted as part of the cooking class was delicious and very authentic, but the breakfast and a la carte dinner wasn't memorable. But the setting more than makes up for it.
This place is a hidden gem. Go before it gets too popular!
