Perfect Balinese location right next to the rice fields. Caters to a variety of pockets depending on your budget. The new Chef at the restaurant is relay good and a vast improvement on the last time we visited. The staff are eager to please and one can count on service with a smile, always. Just far enough from Ubud for that perfect Balinese country experience.
We were booked to stay at another resort after being in Nusa Dua for 3 nights and was disappointed seeing the rooms.... Not what we saw in booking. Com..... Fortunately we are directed to the Bebeck de Ubud and had the most wonderful Balinese lunch with the sound of a water fountain... In a Japanese style... Seating in wooden open huts... The bubbly hostess Dwi with pretty dimples heard that we were looking for a place to stay and quickly suggested and called her boss to explain to us about this resort which they owned... And very sweetly said we could see the place and then decide... Offcourse there was no thinking twice... 5 star luxury at such a good price... The cherry on the pie was the complimentary shuttle service into Ubud Shipping area and back... Organising sightseeing tours at reasonable rates and am shows and dances with timings displayed so neatly... The staff here are very very pleasant... Trained well... Breakfast Excellent... Rooms comfortable and would suggest it to anyone coming to bali.... As four women traveling alone... We felt save being out at night as we knew our shuttle pick up would be there on time to bring us back to our paradise... The owner Nyumon and co partner Max... Was so good to us... Nyumon was like a family member who drove us to the Silver and Gold artisan village, wood sculpture village... And kindly spotted us off to Ubud... This personal hospitality is what makes a huge difference in ones memories... And Max's daily programme guide and advise was so apt... Thank you Banushwari for being so good to us... Will surely recommend it to my clients back home in India and friends
Amazing hidden gem! Staff so friendly and will do anything for you, the hotel offers return transfers to any destination for a small fee... daily free return transport Into ubud centre anytime you wish! We were upgraded to a room with our own private pool as our original room was still being cleaned when we arrived! Due to other reasons we ended up in ubud 2 days early and asked the hotel if we could come early and stay and extra day... which was absolutely fine with them and they accommodated us perfectly. Breakfast was lovely (GREAT COFFEE). Rooms cleaned every day to a great standard and when our wifi stopped working reception got onto the matter straight away and fixed it for us!
Upon arrival you will be treated with great care and the staff will work to pamper you during your stay with them. We were picked up at the airport and shown around by who we discovered later was one of the owners. The resort is staffed by young people who are always smiling and working to keep in good condition, clean, and a nice place for the guest. The Wifi was sometimes not connecting all over the resort (to check work emails) ... but that's not why you come to Bali. And we once didn't get picked up in Ubud on time, and had to wait on the pickup in town after dinner. But the staff were great about arranging for a car ride into town or back to the airport. The grounds of the resort were mostly quiet and a great retreat from the high-season tourist crowd in Ubud or the beach areas. Make sure you upgrade your room to get a private pool - it was a real treat that we don't normally get to enjoy with other hotels! Make sure you travel around and discover other tucked away restaurants in the area too! You will love this place.... we stayed a full week!
Although we have visited Bali several times, we have never stayed in Ubud area. So on this holiday, our family decided to try to stay in Ubud. Bhanuswari resort is our choice. The right choice I say, the hotel surrounded by green rice fields with cool air and very friendly staff made our holiday very enjoyable. We got a spacious room with a private pool, if I'm not mistaken, the hotel has upgraded our room to a higher one. Thank you for Pak Wayan Suarjana for helping us. Next time we will definitely visit again.
I stayed for 3 nights and it was amazing. It was so beautiful and relaxing and the staff was just really friendly and helpful when we had questions. The free shuttle and breakfast was amazing. Will definitely go there again when i am back in Bali.
Nice stay at Bhanuswari with very friendly staff. Located 15 minutters away from Ubud, but the hotel offers free shuttle service to downtown Ubud. Nice and clean rooms, allthough a bit worn down. Located in the middle of the rice fields, with monkeys in the backyard.
This hotel was on some points one of the best places we've stayed, and yet only three stars... Let's start with the very positive: upon arrival on their beautiful compound, we got treated very well, and because of our honeymoon we even got an upgrade to a room with a private pool! We got driven by golf cart to our room and everything looked great. The hotel lies between the ricefields and has a nice panorama from their restaurant. The transfersystem to ubud works very well, and the breakfast (as well as the other meals we had in the restaurant) are good. The staff is very accommodating, they brought us drinks to the pool, and even helped us with booking a tour. However... When you give us an upgrade, please let it be an upgrade... the bed turned out to be very squeaky. I got a rash from the matress near the pool. But the biggest problem for us was our lack of ability to sleep: The room was not soundproof, which meant that you constantly heard the pool dripping. On night two of our stay, a whole group checked in at around 3 o'clock in the night, we could hear the chinese conversations on both sides of our apartment going on for a full hour. When we complained about the noise and said we didn't mind going back to a regular room, (which seemed to be more soundproof and further away from the tourgroups), the staff was very friendly and assured us that it wouldn't happen again. Clearly they didn't know the schedule of the week, because 2 days later, a new group checked in, also around 3 a.m.. We don't get it: why give us this room as an upgrade if you know that there will be groups checking in and out around that room in the middle of the night that whole week? The hotel wasn't full, they could have given us a room more to the side... To conclude: wonderfull hotel, but don't take the upgrade. If your sleep is disrupted 2 of the 5 nights you're staying, its not a relaxing "resort and spa" experience.
I arrived here, alone, after being dumped by my partner. I was sad and didn't want to leave the resort. But Nyoman wouldn't have it, and took me out for the day himself showing me his beautiful Bali. I returned again with my best friend and had another wonderful trip, and I'm looking forward to bringing my husband in the near future xx
There are several types of accommodation available depending on your budget. You can choose from a hotel room type of accommodation to villa type accommodation. The landscaping around Bhanuswari is very Balinese and non are far away from the rice-fields. The best asset is location, location, location. You have regular free shuttle to Ubud if you feel like shopping. You can also organised personal private tours to any attraction in Bali at reasonable prices. The new "Bebbek D' Ubud" restaurant recently opened is only a few hundred meters away. A restaurant worth a visit. Reasonable prices, good portions and lovely ambiance. We also got a good percentage discount on our meals as it is owned by the same owners as Bhanuswari.
