Location

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Bali is a legendary isle of exotic beauty and cultural splendour; an island of temples and volcanoes, of gentle music and elaborate dances, coral fringed beaches and colourful festivals. Pondok Saraswati is nestled in the heart of Bali in the village of Silungan near Ubud.

Morning views of distant volcanoes and a delicious breakfast with fresh flower offerings starts the day. One can observe the coming and goings of traditional Balinese rural life amongst rich productive rice paddies. The mountain air is much cooler than down on the coast, and the rythmn of village life offers a peaceful retreat for tired western minds.

Ubud, the famous art centre of Bali, is ten minutes’ drive to the north and is blessed with abundant shopping, dance performances, restaurants and cafes.
