Ubud was also a cross that had to be set on our Bali bucket list. For our accomndation we decided to have a short trip at the Villa Sabandari Bali..
Arrived in the Vila, which is close located to the rice fields and Ubud city, we were overwhelmed by the cultural charm and impressive location. Moreover the Boutique hotel was designed by the famous architect Joost van Grieken, who is also located in Bali for many years. I think it is really obvious, that he let the hotel design be influenced by the history of the island.
It felt so good to return to from shopping and getting around in the daily life of Ubud and to take a rest in the majestic space of Sabandari. Bali is known as the ‘Island of the Gods’. No wonder the Masceti temple is one of the hotel’s neighbors and that from the open living room, you can see a small forest temple, at the other side of the rice field.
Also a quick visit in the spa was so tempting, that we had it every day during our stay. The kind personal and the fulltime seervice of the hotel were even empowering the feeling of beeing home, even we were far away from home.
Because Villa Sabandari has only 6 rooms, there was nothing like a buffet or à la carte breakfast. Breakfast will be served at the time and place of ones choice, which was even better.
Also a complimentary Afternoon Tea is served between 16:00 and 17:00. It was possible to select of a very good Tea Menu or freshly brewed coffee from the French Press, which my mum enjoyed totally. Also cocktails could have been offered, so as wine, juices and all kind of soft drinks. There was actually none of our wishes unfulfilled.
The Vila Sabandari is the perfectly matching place for all kind of tourists, since one is never lost into the blue. It offers all kind of foods, drinks, restaurants, city life and spa treatments that one could wish for and ensured to make your stay in the island of god's the most pleasant one ever. Not to forget, the free shuttle and pick up to Ubud city!
