I booked this place reading many great comments but I was SO shocked when arrived! Airport transfer the hotel offered was more expensive then taxi but my disappointments were just beginning!. I was speechless when I saw the place very complementary called "villa". Dirt and dilapidation! The big pool advertised on hotel website was under reconstruction therefore only small pool was available but its` size suitable maybe for only a few people. I spent only one hour there and escaped to another place which was not a problem to find. Moreover, the staff charged me for transfer again! Terrible.. the worst experience ever in Bali.
This place is truly magical. It is of such a beauty and secludetness that you would want to stay forever. Houses are furnished very tastefully. A place with a lot of history and kindness, without making a big deal out of it. So if you want to stay in Ubud but have a complete nature experience stay there! It is like being in the jungle. The pool is small but wonderful overlooking the Angung river. Our favorites are the ‚Made villa’ with its spectacular view and The Malay villa which has something very majestic to it. It is true that some works have to be done and surely will be. So don't expect perfection here. Just enjoy. Here you get a real feeling of what Ubud is about.
This hotel used to be the benchmark for villa hotels in Ubud. Sadly it has been left to run down because of complicated ownership details I've heard. The best pool view in Sayan at the volcanos over the valley....however the pool is fit only for frogs as it was green not glorious blue. Broken furniture, cigarette butts. The rooms are in great need of a make over, the towels etc should be better...not old. This place could be the best hideaway in Ubud but it seems like we were staying in an abandoned location. So sad. The love has been lost.
I have been advised the place by a friend who stayed there many years ago. What used to be once a magnificent property with a stunning view on rice terrasse (a hidden gem as I could read) is now literally turning to ruins bit by bit. What is being done from this place is an absolute outrage. The minimum needed effort to maintain the place is obviously not provided. This lack of the elementary care translates in basically everything. Each piece of fabric such as mosquito net or blanket are grey, smelly or torn. Every wooden part (I.e. balcony, etc.) is falling apart... not even mentioning the safety aspect of it. What seems to have been a reception in the past and some of the villas seem abandoned. Creepy, sad... and scandalous for 2 to 4 times the average price of a night in Ubud. We had the Valley View Villa. We changed hotel after the first night. I leave 2 stars (and not 1) for the breakfast that is very good (nice surprise of the morning after a terrible night) and the staff that is nice. But definitely not worth it even at a price divided by 4.
What an amazing place :) I fully recommend this place to anyone who is wanting to stay in an old rustic small resort and wanting some peaceful RnR. This place was very hip back in the 70s with many A listers staying here. Look at the awesome 10min video on there web site. We fell in love with this place straight away. The architecture, the views, the bird life and amazing gardens. Gusti the manager and staff are always ready to help you. There's a restaurant 2 minutes walk with great views and the 4 seasons resort/ space ship,architecture concrete thingy is build next door. It's located a few minutes away from town and taxis are available all the time. Very affordable. This is in my top 2 places to stay in Ubud ( the other is The Mansion) . We will come back :)
As stated online, this area offers some of the most spectacular views of the terraces, jungle and river in Ubud. Next door is Sayan terrace, where we tried to book, but they were full. If you have the budget, below is the Four-Seasons, which could cost you a small fortune. Our room overlooked the pool, as well as the terrain as mentioned above, and was just beautiful. Coffee facilities in the room, as well as fridge and air-con, make for a comfortable stay. Make sure you book a jungle trek with Jozz, which is both beautiful and educational. Ask the reception staff to get hold of him. We chose the 4 hour jungle trek, the “adventure” option, which included wading through the river and some steep climbs. Jozz provided some traditional food on the way. Proper footwear recommended. We also stopped off at a tea house to sample some teas and coffees, and he assisted us with our rafting booking. It was a great morning activity and would highly recommend it. Please note, at the time of this review, Taman Bebek still has signage leading to their older premises, which, as far as we could tell, has closed down. It is not far from the present location, but it made it difficult to find, and drivers we booked for various other activities, struggled to find us. If you want to make it easier, tell them to look for Sayan Terrace as the two venues are right next to each other. On booking.com, at the time of writing, the pictures of the older location are still advertised, and I think these should be updated. Some upgrade on the pool furniture could be good.
This hotel has a nice location in jungles and valley, but actually i was staying in Royal Villa and got 5 views (MOUNTAINS, RICE TERRACE, RIVER, VALLEYS, POOL view). The place is very beautiful. Atmosphere is helping you to relax and enjoy your vacation. Especially recommend to try he dishes of restaurant they provided. It is one of the best in Sayan Ubud, all food was very tasty and highly recommended and healthy. Service is on the highest level!! thanks to Mrs. Nyoman and team has assisted me and treated me well.
Warm hospitality, sincere service-orientation, serene location and the much-sought after Balinese Villa experience. Taman Bebek embraces its guests in pure Bali bliss with its breathtaking views of the Ubud jungle and its beautiful infinity pool experience. We'll definitely go back here on our next Bali trip. Oh, and great value-for-money as well. :)
It would seem that Taman Bebek is resting on its laurels earned from a previous style of management. Our room was gloomy, the floorboards squeaked and the gaps in the floorboards let the mosquitoes in, and the net around the bed was a frugal number that barely protected us at night. The decking outside is in need of maintenance as well. The night illumination around the property is quite treacherous as the lights shine into your face, instead of on the paths and steps. Set amongst sumptuous properties nearby highlights the inadequacies of this resort and I'm sure the staff would find it difficult to pretend that there is not something amiss.
Second time at Taman Bebek and although the place has seen better days and there is a shadow of decay about it, we love it. Nothing about it is modern or urban, it feels like you're staying in a tree house with no outside world. Staff are very attentive, friendly and unobtrusive. Its a good 10 mins drive to Ubud however the distance from town only adds to its features. Stayed in West villa which is quite spacious -large enough for an additional bed for our daughter and her words " why didn't we come here sooner ".
