Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in a villa here for 5 nights. Staff here were lovely, every morning (without a doubt) they all greeted us. Restaurant was really good, service exceptional. Although the resort is 30 minute car ride out of Ubud centre, the resort had a shuttle to take you in (10am, 2pm, 4pm and 9pm)- if you needed a ride at another time it was only 100k.

Room was very clean, air con was great. The outdoor bathroom could have had a cosmetic make up (old amenities), but very clean. We did have a tokay gecko (google the noise) who decided to join us in our room for a few nights- so maybe bring a pair of earplugs!

One of the best resort in Ubud, very peaceful, we can hear the sound of river, bird and jungle insect in whole day, this resort is perfect for honeymoon actually, but if you bring the kids also perfect because the pool is ok and clean.
They provide breakfast in the pool with additional cost, but i think this is worthed. One that i not like is the breakfast, they not provide buffet breakfast with a lot of variety, they just give the menu, and the option is standard, like omelette, ham, fried rice or fried noodle. The rest is very ok start from they welcoming us when we arrive until we check out, the staff is very welcoming and very nice. This hotel also provide buggy car, so if the guest bring a lot of luggage they can help with the buggy car.
So, the conclusion, we very happy to stay in this hotel, maybe one day we can stay in this hotel again to trying another kind of the villa

The Hotel has suffered from the pandemic as all of them has, however the villas with private pool are very luxurious still and provide all you need to relax. The location is 25 minutes outside of Ubud but that makes it very tranquil. The service is outstanding and the restaurant food and service is actually 5 star!

One or two stars to many for this hotel- the facilities are after 2 years pandemic due to renovate. No TV, wifi not working and unable to make it running during our stay. They said there is wifi in restaurant but it was unworkable as well it seems off for longer already than just during our stay. Rooms need a deeper cleaning, a pot of paint maintenance of wood and outside cushions. It’s a large area with a lush garden but even here the gardeners have to cut the wheat of the past 2 years. During check in ,Bell boy didn’t ask to carry my luggage to the 100 m away villa he just carried the key and open the door for us. Bed sheets needed to be exchanged by arrival as they were dirty. They are friendly but there is a lot more to do, to earn the stars they claim. They got a large pool and a nice setting along the river, so the potential is there but it needs concentrated effort to improve.

The staff is non-accommodating. I had my 6 friends and 2 kids out in the early morning for Mount Batur Trek and when requested for breakfast for 2 kids, they rejected. At the same time the organiser for breakfast packed a big breakfast for a White family. It seems the staff is biased and racist towards ethnic or other color people and misbehave. One of the kid fell ill and I took the breakfast next day to his room as he couldn't walk and the next day the breakfast staff accused me of stealing glasses. When I tried to contact the reception to speak of this behaviour the manager didnt turn up to have a chat and the feedback given was that our staff is like that and customers need to adjust with our staff. What I have learnt is if one has self dignity, dont go to Santi Mandala.

We visited this resort 5 years ago to be out of the humdrum of Ubud. We enjoyed it so much we came back this year. Beautiful and peaceful, wonderful staff that can't do enough for you. The serenity of the location is a bonus after in the noise and clatter of central Ubud. The restaurant has great food, the pool is picturesque.

We were there over Nyepi Day and visited the local village for the Nyepi Eve festival. We had a wonderful experience, as we did 5 years previously.

We brought our friend, who were first timers and they fell in love with the place. Will definitely be returning again.

Booked a luxury one bedroom pool villa from 27th August 2023 to 29th August 2023.
The resort is located in Ubud surrounded by rice fields and nature. The place is well maintained. The have a natural waterfall in the resort premises. Also a river runs at the entrance of the resort. However since it was summer the river was dried up. The view of the resort is mesmerizing.

The luxury one bedroom pool villa was really spacious. Even though its few minute walk through the hills from the reception area, the villas are really worth every penny. Room Maintenance and amities, villa privacy and room services were commendable.

The resort staffs, managers and even restaurants staffs were immensely hospitable, friendly and polite and didn't hesitate to help us. The people around there are really helpful and friendly.

The resort is good place for people who likes peaceful place enclosed in the arms of nature away from hustle bustle of the city life. The only recommendation is they should conduct some events after evening, as its pretty much monotonous and isolated after dark.

On 29th August 2023 close to dawn, there was an earthquake that actually scared us thankfully no harm was done, but that's a natural calamity and no one is to be blamed. Other than that the we had an awesome blissful stay and memories of the place and people to remember.

Beautiful private bungalows, with comfy beds and a lovely big bathtub. The grounds are filled with beautiful planting and the communal pool was clean and at a good temperature.

The staff couldn’t do anything more for you. Ayu, the guest relations manager was brilliant at organising trips out for you.

We ate at the restaurant every day, lots of choice, all very tasty and beautifully presented.

The location was superb being near Ubud in the rain forest yet only just over an hour transfer from the airport. Felt like a boutique hotel with just 21 villas and the river rolling through the complex. Service was exceptional with nothing too much. The range of food and quality was tremendous considering the location and price range. Give us a great feel of Bali and highly recommend it.

Rats/lizards/unknown animals come to the room and damage items. My daughter's ear had swelling. Unsafe for families. When contacted the reception, I was informed that looking or checking for animals at night time is not responsibility of the staff. Would say go at your own risk.

Hi. I'm not sure if they were available for everyday guest use. You may have to enquire with the resort. There are guided rides available. I don't there are bikes available in the local village either. We didn't ask. We were happy with the guided ride.
