still nice but lost a bit of its charm

Posted Apr 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
stayed at the Arma the 4th time. Booked Delux room to get terrace with daybed (only room 801+803 have them now!) They tried at first to give us the new renovated rooms but they only share a terrace with 4 other rooms. Breakfast is a la card and very limited/restricted (eg. only fruit OR fruit juice) it`s still a beautiful hotel & very peaceful but it lost the special service and extra touch it used to have. Also Neighbor is building right next to room 803/801 a large house - currently building noise and it will spoil the few when finish.

Sweet life in the suite villa

Posted Feb 7, 2012
Pros: Sumptuous pool and surrounds
Cons: The air con in the bathroom was a bit noisy - but not really a problem
Location: Situated and insulated in superb grounds, but located on a lively road with lots of shops and restaurants
The hotel part of the resort is being upgraded but the villas are well away from any construction noise. The suite villa is gorgeous, huge pool and generous private garden, and views of the adjacent rice field and surrounding gardens. The interior consists of a large bed/sitting room (with king size bed, floral arrangments and orchids), a dressing room and separate bathroom with mezzzanine viewing area (pretty carved panels and comfy sofa). The grounds of the resort are huge and beautiful - full of hindu statues and water features and contiguous with the adjacent museum.There are two restaurants and a coffee shop - all good and free afternoon tea by the main pool (with wifi). We had a thoroughly peaceful and luxurious stay and considered it excellent value.

Our stay at the ARMA was pure magic. We loved the opportunity to soak up Balinese culture through the museum setting and the excellent staff members. The Golden Hour Tour with Mr. Agung Rai ties all the threads together. Very relaxing, very educational, and very wonderful from the gardens, dining, room stays, and most importantly, the gracious staff. We will return again and again to support the projects and plans of the ARMA for the community.

a piece of paradise

Posted Aug 30, 2009 on Hotels.com
we fell in love with this hotel and it's setting the moment we arrived. the room was large and well cooled. there were no televisions in the rooms, so guests tend to gather at the pool and/or common areas and visit with other guests from all over the world. the staff is gracious and the buffet breakfast is fine. a truly wonderful place to spend a few wonderful days in Ubud.

So much to offer in a secret serene spot...

Our stay was very pleasant- great value for money and comfortable. There were many staff in attendance and all were patient, extremely helpful and proficient. Lush, large grounds which sometimes felt as if they we're your own private garden. Nice sitting by the pool for afternoon tea while reading and the breakfast was modest but tasty. Didn't get to try the cafe or restaurant but Ubud has too many great places to eat. The museum was a nice surprise - cool, expansive and covers much of Bali's Art history with exhibits on Walter Spies and 'Ubud Prince' Dr. A.A. Madé Djelantik as well as contemporary artists such as I Made Sumadiyasa. Large rooms, bed comes with mosquito net and mosquito coil although we had no problems (mid-June). The only minor problem was that our shower head would inadvertently flood the floor of our room but that was cleaned up without any issues. Overall a great place to retreat to after a day explring Ubud or the surrounds.
