“Little sanctuary, great peaceful place, wrong price 30-40 US”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

The owner Sandeh tried to change the price because the price written are for the yoga class. I stayed at White Lotus twice, it was a great experience, the rooms are clean, very private because thre is only two rooms. The rooms are kept very clean, the patio is beautiful. I have a wonderful time there. The upper floor ( the yoga studio) is beautiful especially at sunset. Chakra meditation was amazing and yoga too. I would go back there anytime. Definitively the best place in Ubud.

Stayed February 2012, travelled solo

A friend of mine and I stayed at this lovely oasis for 4 days in April. What a sanctuary. Two rooms on the lower level of the owner's house, with a gorgeous patio overlooking a lush garden and a view of waterfalls, rice fields and mountains. And a yoga studio on the top floor; classes daily. I felt like I was staying with family. No pool or onsite food or coffee service but restaurants close by and just a short walk to the main Ubud Rd. Really beautiful place. Highly recommended!

White Lotus is a really special place owned by a nice lady.
Although it's in the center of Ubud it's a really quiet place with a beautiful garden and a spiritual rooftop with a tremendous view over Ubud and its rice paddies around.
By the sound of a real waterfall and the cool breeze from the mountains you can follow great yoga courses every morning by a professional teacher on the rooftop of the house. Every evening you can follow meditation courses underneath the star filled sky! Both courses are also open for people who do not stay in the house.
The rooms are beautiful, tasteful and spotless.
I had a really special time here and so I recommend everybody to visit this place!

Communicated with the owner by email under a mistaken assumption that the rooms rented for only $6 or $7 per night. Below is what is still on Trip Advisor.

After we were quoted a higher price by the owner, and it was obvious a mix up had occurred, we immediately replied explaining the mix up and wishing her well in her endeavors.
What we received in reply shocked us. We were ridiculed and accused of costing her business due to customers we had deprived her of...even though we had not confirmed the reservation and were days away from our arrival dates.
Some people are not well suited to the hospitality industry.

Thanks so much for your review.
It is a pitty, usually you would not be allowed to write about a place you have never seen or visited
before, which is the case...so please give me the chance to show you what Ubud offers to its guests

This is the best kept secret in Ubud!! We were unbelievably lucky to have had the opportunity to stay in this remarkable property. White Lotus is a new home in Ubud with 2 lovely, private and peaceful rentals overlooking the garden, lush rice fields and waterfalls.

We met Sandeh the owner of White Lotus through a friend. We connected immediately, went on a lovely hike thru lush rice fields and back roads in which she showed us around Ubud, a place where she, though Italian born has made her home for the last 5 years.

The house was her vision for a Meditation and Yoga retreat and the space for doing that is the most perfect location I have ever seen. Sandeh's warmth and hospitality made our trip to Bali one of the highlights of our 6 week adventure through South East Asia.

Do yourself a favor and stop reading reviews. There is a reason that we all rank this place 5 stars, but it doesn't have many reviews. It's new, but let me explain what in fact makes it unique. It's small - as in 2 rooms. The house/centre is designed by a European woman who will make you feel as if she's been waiting for you with open arms from the first email/call/visit. You live/stay on the bottom level of this 4 story home overlooking the river and rice fields. Her garden and veranda induce serenity and yet you are 3-5 mins from the commotion of Monkey Forest. And the top floor of her home includes an open air meditation gazebo and two loungers to spend the afternoon worshipping the sun. If that isn't what draws you in, ask her about the orphanage, teaching, and sponsorship she is involved with. This is truly a woman and place to be inspired by.

Not only is the White Lotus an absolute oasis of peace, comfort, and relaxation in the center of Ubud, its owner, Sandeh, is one of the warmest people we have encountered on our travels. We have been traveling extensively, and have stayed in many places, but the White Lotus is in a separate category altogether. We've actually described our stay at the White Lotus and meditation training with Sandeh on our travel blog: http://www.phdnomads.com/meditating-in-bali.html - you can read the full details and see some pictures there. You will not regret staying here.
