Desa Sanctuary, The Village offers unique accommodations in original antique wooden homes that have been refurbished and restored offering all the modern comforts. Just the right mix of Bali Modern with traditional hand carved Javanese Joglos perched atop open floor plans.
The Village is a private and secure residence situated down a lane on the same street as the famous healer of EAT, PRAY, LOVE. Just minutes from the center of town....ideal for those coming on retreat to Ubud, the cultural center of Bali.
The Lotus Lumbung, is a two story house that looks out to the rice paddies from the upstairs and a garden view from downstairs.
The Master Bedroom, upstairs, has rice paddy views and a Queen bed.
The downstairs living room opens onto the pool and garden. The bathroom, located downstairs, is designed with hand placed rock tile, with shower.
The kitchen, with double burner stove top, and refrigerator, allows you to make this your home away from home. There is an electronic keypad safe large enough for a laptop.
The Village features a beautiful pool and WIFI is available everywhere in our Village, so you can be online having a sunset drink by the pool, or reclining in your bed
Lotus Lumbung can accommodate 2 persons in total. Price includes breakfast.
A short distance from Ubud center, Desa Sanctuary is a great place to make your home away from home. A full staff of delightful helpers makes this the best vacation...you'll never have to lift a finger!
Le sanctuaire Rumah David est petit jardin clos ou il a été construit autour d'une petite piscine 5 chalets les uns a coté des autres. On se sent assez à l'étroit. Et le soir nous entendons les voisins parler jusqu'à 2 h du matin car les maisons sont tres proches les unes des autres.
Rumah David dispose d'un coin cuisine et salon et d'une chambre.
La décoration est + que vétuste a l'étage armoire en friche, miroir cassé. Les WC sont au RDC;
La décoration est assez sommaire pour un pays qui se trouve être le Paradis de la décoration.
Pas assez de transat autour de la piscine (5) pour 5 chalets.
Sinon le personnel est très sympas.
We are sorry Joelle could hear the guests next door…we usually just ask guests to quiet down after 10 if there is any noise.
Our decor is chosen with a Balinese/Western feel to allow people to have the comfort of great lighting, air con, hot shower and great beds and beddings.
We hope Joelle enjoyed her time in Bali
Brenda and David
Although we did not get to meet David and Brenda, we were received very well. The staff was great and accommodating re: check in / out policy. Matt and I had a great time but I am not sure this is the bungalow will fit all travelers. For instance we had a friendly house cat stay with us on the bottom floor and the bungalow in general is very open to nature (i.e. partly exposed bathroom, insects, geckos). The place is a bit far from Ubud proper but we took a private car every day to go far into Bali island so that was not a huge issue. The banana pancakes are big plus!
Great spot! Good location and the pool really makes it. Love the small enclosed community and it was just a short 20 minute walk into Ubud. A motorbike is super helpful! The staff is extremely helpful and nice. Just be aware since the downstairs is partially open there are bugs! But only at a certain time of night. Great place to spend your Ubud vacation!
We had a really good time here. The staff at this sanctuary are very friendly and attentive. The room we stayed at was very nice! Thank you!
quiet getaway in ubud, worth the cost..good staff..use outside taxi (in house a bit pricey)
Stayed in the Lumbung for 10 days and had a great time staying here. The only downside was the distance into the town, it does take 20-30 minutes to walk and it's not very fun when it's dark or raining. There is also not really a footpath, so it's not safe to walk at night. Even though walking is always quite challenging in Ubud. On our third day we did hire a motorbike and the problem was solved. Staff are very lovely, friendly and helpful. The breakfast is included is always pretty good. Try the banana pancake! Would defiantly stay here again :) Thanks
Communications were excellent and everything was very easy. Unfortunately we didn't manage to actually stay at the place due to illness that left us far away.
Oasis in Ubud with cozy design, very friendly and helpful staff and many little lovely details - you will enjoy your stay! Had the pleasure to meet David who welcomed me with a big smile and many interesting and helpful hints and ideas. Highly recommend this place
The staff were helpful and friendly, however the hosts were completely absent - perhaps on holiday. The breakfasts were yummy. This place is a good 20 minutes walk in to the centre of Ubud. The footpaths are virtually non-existent or in an extremely bad state of disrepair. It's a busy road. If hot, it was certainly too long to walk, but fine on a motorbike. For our taste this particular bungalow was a bit claustrophobic. Some of the other bungalows were better, but cost about 50% more. The gardens were delightful, the pool clean, but the amenities for Cozy Lotus bungalow were worn and a bit so so.
The bungalows look exactly like the pictures, it's beautiful and you feel in the jungle. We got a welcome drink :) People who work there are really helpful.
You will most likely need a cab ( or rent a scooter) to get to the downtown area but there are cheap cab everywhere anytime.
