Villa Sarna Ubud
Ranked #148 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Reviewed 20 April 2012

This is a very well managed hotel that provides good value. We ordered dinner from the associated restaurant nearby and ate in the library/bar --all told a first class experience. The service and attention to detail are impressive and the setting lovely. Only downside is the commute into Ubud 15 to 20 minutes. Free shuttle service is provided.

This was my umpteenth trip to Ubud, and I am so glad I chose to stay at Villa Sarna. Yes, it is about a 15 - 20 minute drive from the center of Ubud (due in part to the heavy traffic on a main street in Ubud), but Ubud has become so crowded and well on its way to being over commercialized that it has lost a lot of its charm (for me). The beauty and the tranquility of Ubud-that-used-to-be can be found at Villa Sarna.

Transport is only a problem if you make it one. The hotel has a shuttle that leaves every 2 hours (9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.) and does an in-town pick up on the half hour if requested (11:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m.) If you want to return to the Villa earlier, just hire one of the many people in Ubud asking if you want "transport". Just be sure to take a Villa Sarna business card with you in case your driver needs guidance to this out of the way retreat.

My particular "villa" did not have a balcony. (I was in Sarasweti.) I was told that of the 7, only 2 do. I did have an additional room off of the bedroom, though, with easy chairs, fridge, a few decorative pieces of furniture. Very comfortable.

The staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. I returned to the villa rather late by private transport one evening and was met at the entry by one of the gentlemen working there. Although the walkway was well lit, he escorted me to my room with a flashlight. I felt well cared for. :)

Breakfasts are lovely.

Highly recommended.

Huge room with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. We experienced good service and ate some amazing meals at the restaurant. The resort is small and private and exquisitely manicured. We got to meet all the other guests during our short stay, but equally could have avoided them without much trouble if we had chosen.
A couple of gripes: our walk in wardrobe smelt a bit musty and the some of the fixtures and fittings in the room were a tad dated/ not quite 5 star; the apartments are a 20 minute drive from the (tourist) centre of Ubud. The latter actually worked out well for us as it meant we had true rest and relaxation, but it did make going out for dinner difficult. (There is a free shuttle bus that is as punctual as a Swiss train and runs every two hours.)
These really are minor gripes for me, but may be important to other people. I would definitely return.

Our stay at Villa Sarna was the highlight of our 10 day vacation! The grounds were very well kept. The gardens and view were so beautiful and made for a tranquil setting. After time in Seminyak and Kuta the peaceful location was welcome. While it is a distance from Ubud, the hotel provides a shuttle every 2 hours which we found perfect for dinner. The drivers were very obliging taking us to which ever location we wanted and picking us up in the same spot. It is near rice terraces which makes it a good place to begin sight seeing. Breakfast was very good.
As for service, it was so good that they went to Ubud in search of Aloe Vera for the sunburn my boyfriend got in Seminyak. When they could not find it the driver called the front desk and asked them to tell us. They came to the pool to tell us and then the driver called himself when he returned. I think they went beyond expectations in all respects.
I would recommend Villa Sarna to anyone and would go back in a heartbeat!
