This intimate 18 room hotel in the center of Ubud is newly renovated inside and out. Great care was taken to recreate or retain the traditional Balinese architecture and lush gardens, well known trademarks of the property. New rooms are beautifully furnished and are air conditioned or have ceiling fans and fresh breezes. Bathrooms are either marble or terrazzo. Every room has its own large, private veranda. The pool is inviting and cold drinks are served poolside. The Bungalows are set back from the street in a tranquil and serene garden. It is hard to believe that Ubud’s activity is so close to these quiet and calm surroundings.
The Bungalows have served guests for over 25 years. This very special hotel remains a part of the Ubud Royal Palace property and today three generations of the royal family make their home on the grounds. You will see authentic Balinese ceremony and ritual as family and friends come and go. Don’t be surprised if you are invited to join them.
And at the Bungalows, activities vary from day to day. One day it will be carvers creating masks for the mystical barong; another day artisans will be detailing newly created gamelan instruments; or perhaps gala preparations for a temple ceremony could be in process. You are surrounded by Balinese art, culture and tradition. At Puri Saraswati Bungalows it is all part of a normal day. The Bungalows have never been separated from the old, traditional Balinese life and you will find yourself as much a part of it as you choose, perhaps an observer, perhaps a participant.
