Our stay at Desa Sanctuary was amazing and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful sanctuary in Ubud. The staff (especially Sak Ming!) goes out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of and that everything is to your liking. The houses are beautiful and there is something for everyone! My boyfriend stayed...

We had a great time staying at Desa Sanctuary. The place is clean and quaint. My son really likes hanging out at the pool and the location is not very far from central Ubud. We would recommend staying at Desa Sanctuary.

My wife and I stayed here along with two of her relatives in February. Our week was wonderful. The service at the sanctuary is top notch. They are happy to help accomodate any special needs. The houses are a bit closer together than we thought based on the websites descriptions but they still offer enough privacy. We stayed at the...

Our stay at Rumah David Sanctuary was very (very very) good . Very well designed and maintained apartment. Elegantly decorated and equipped with all modern needs. And just outside Ubud (what we experienced as positive --> nice and quiet). The ideal base from which to explore Ubud. After a day of touring the pool is a pretty great place to...

Very friendly and helpfull staff, small and pretty rooms. The 2 bigger houses are really nice and very comfortable. Only some noise from the road can be a bit disturbing ... but the placee compensates that !

We stayed 1 month at Desa Sanctuary. Rating our stay out of 5 was awkward given that some parts of our stay were really memorable, others were not. To summarise the pro's and con's... Pro's: Incredibly personal service from the wonderful Balinese staff. We felt so well looked after and it really made our stay. From 8am - 9pm, they...

Thank you for taking the time to write us a wonderful review. We appreciate your candidness and like to be clear with our guests that we are doing our absolute best to manage the "jungle" on our terms.....keeping ants at bay and bargaining with our neighbors to "buy" their roosters....unfortunately they forget that they agreed to not have them, and...

We stayed nine lovely nights in Rumah Kampung. It really is lovely accommodation, with a big bed, a sitting area, balcony, large bathroom and separate kitchen area. The gardens are beautiful, the pool lovely and the staff very helpful. The breakfasts are fresh and delicious. The only issue we had was the description when we booked stated it was minutes...

“For a short stay for 2 people Rumah Tinggi was lovely. It was a little elevated so quite private. For a longer stay, for 2 people, the bungalow below Rumah Tinggi was also looked very comfortable. For a group of people the big houses looked superb. However, all the 5 options were excellent. Personally I wouldn't choose a room/villa next to a swimming pool.”

“all are great, question of size. kampung does not have much outdoor space, it is fully enclosed whereas the other houses are open on the ground floor with bedroom enclosed upstairs. very charming arrangement to live with open walls.”
