|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 and fresh breezes. Bathrooms
are marble. Every room has its own large,
private veranda. The pool is inviting and cold drinks are
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.
Puri Saraswati Bungalows has recently completed its new lobby. It is elegantly constructed of white Palimanan stone and beautiful carving on the pillars. The lobby is welcoming to guests and has a warm and friendly feel to it. The lobby was the last of a complete renovation program that included all rooms, restaurant, pool and gardens.
