Had a wonderful time at The Kampung Resort Ubud. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are beautiful, and the location is ideal for relaxing and unwinding.
Also, the restaurant is delicious and has an amazing view. Try the Indonesian breakfast options (complimentary with my room booking), the fried rice was so yummy! Also the fresh orange juice.
"Lovely hotel and setting with very freindly staff"
However - Expedia show the hotel in the wrong location and you will need to plan 20-30 minutes by vehicle to get to Ubud town!
Also, not instantly obvious on the website but there is no onsite restaurant or Spa.
Wonderful experience since checking in to leaving. We were here for 6 days and absolutely loved it! Central to everything, their shuttle service around town was amazing. The staff is genuine, kind and professional.they really try hard to make your stay wonderful. They remembered that it was our anniversary and filled our tub with petals upon arrival with a card. They recognized us by name everyday. Great value for what we paid! 5 star experience! On our last day they said thank you and offered us a complimentary spa massage. We will be recommending this hotel to all our friends! And we would definitely return when come back to bali. Thank you for the hospitality!
My friend and I stayed at the safari park and lodge for one night. We had an incredible time. The staff were very friendly and I was very impressed to be greeted by a personalised itinerary when we checked in. This really helped us to make the most of our time there. It was amazing to be chauffeured to dinner by an elephant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Bali and would definitely go again!
For every person that stays there are 10 staffers watching you. We felt uncomfortable by the way they treated us. It was an overly nice "we are watching you" way, which was strange since we are well dressed, respectable American businessmen. They don't seem to understand the American culture at all - we don't want to be followed and we don't want to sit in a restaurant with 4 staffers staring at us waiting for us to order something. What was particularly annoying is everywhere you go in the resort they ask you your room number - you probably get asked 12-15 times a day, no lie. Anyone else who stays here will understand exactly what I am saying. It's all just too much. Relax, you have a gated community and plenty of security people, you don't need to harass your guests and make them feel like they something isn't right.

Set on a hillside and surrounded by ten hectares of tropical gardens, this resort is nearby to Ubud Village and the Ayung …More
Alaya Ubud is a short distance south of the busy area of Ubud. The hotel feels very calm and peaceful, backing intorice field - a lovely bright green during our stay. Royal palace is a sort walk away. Monkey forest is just around the corner. Supermarket, ATM and restaurants are close by.
Beautiful looking hotel. Breakfast and some of the evening menu a bit average. Room needed to be updated a little, TV was at least 15 years old. Staff were all excellent, strange though they don't seem to be required to walk around pool area and ask if you require any refreshments like all other 5 star hotels I've stayed in. I didn't see it happen once.
An amazingly beautiful hotel hidden on the slope of a hill in the rain forest above a stream overlooking Virgin rainforest on another Hill just north of Ubud. Friendly staff, I could go on and on about it, it might be best to experience it. I had a private villa with a private infinity pool which was awesome. Marble bathroom was in good condition and so was the rest of the stylish interior . There are excellent stream side massage facilities and they also have yoga to complete their lifestyle selling point. Ok, if I had to give negative points, they are small. The water pressure was not the best. I also think that if you are looking for late night drinks it my also be problematic, since the curtains are made of a white fabric which probably only there to give extra privacy. This hotel is not selling that lifestyle. All in all an awesome place to stay.
Ubud is the arts and cultural centre of the island. This charming mountain settlement is 25 km (1 hour’s drive) north of Denpasar and comprises 14 villages dotted with palaces, temples, museums, galleries, shops, arts and crafts, and excellent restaurants. Other than a few nightspots, village life is quiet and serene. Don’t miss the nightly traditional dance performances and nearby Monkey Forest Park.
