Great, quiet getaway resortPosted Sep 21, 2013
Super friendly and helpful resort staff, very comfortable rooms and beautiful facilities and surroundings. Excellent breakfast menu. Quiet location away from Ubud, perfect for a getaway, but still with good access to the town for day trips. Highly recommend.

Staying out in the rice fieldsPosted Aug 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a pretty good hotel, with two nice pool areas, overlooking the surrounding rice fields. While breakfast was decent, the staff was friendly and the location was nice and quiet, the linens were a bit dingy and there was a strong smell of diesel in the bathroom. Also, if you are hoping to walk into town, this is not the place for you...it's a good 15 minute drive. You can either rely on their shuttle service - which seems to be at your disposal when you need it. Or you can rent a scooter / motorbike from them at very reasonable rates - which, to me is the way to go anyway as it'll really allow you to explore the surrounding countryside. All in all, not a bad stay and I consider staying there if I am ever in Ubud again.

tranquility at it's bestPosted Aug 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed at the Mansion, Suly resort, and Oka Katrina also. I choose to come back to Bhanuswari. It is 1/2 to1/3 the cost of the Mansion and I preferred Bhanuswari. My upstairs room in one of the 4 plexus I like much better than the suite the Mansion upgraded me to. The bathroom is hugh with the tub in the middle of the room. The back 1/4 is open to the outside. The shower is in the open. I love to sit on my balcony

A peaceful and quiet resortPosted Apr 30, 2013
Pros: Nice staff
Cons: Pests like ants, lizards and mosquito.
A nice and quiet resort for those who wants to get away from the crowds and busy lifestyle. The staffs are wonderful and friendly. For those who hates pest like ants, lizards, mosquito, etc, you may not prefer this resort as it part of the nature package.

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The staff was really friendly and it was obvious that they wanted us to have a lovely stay. Thanks to everyone again! The hotel is not in Ubud centre, it is located 10-15 minutes from Ubud but we regarded that as a real advantage. There is a free pick up and drop off service (until 10.30pm), you only have to call the reception. We never waited more than 15 minutes in the city. The drivers were also very friendly. The hotel was surrounded by rice fields but unfortunately not all the rice fiels were green as it was the harvest time. The two swimming pools were very nice and the garden was perfectly maintained. There were lots of beautiful flowers and butterflies. However the buildings are a bit old and would need a good clean/painting. Our room was great (I think we were upgraded in a deluxe room...), the bed was huge and comfortable. But the cupboards were not really clean so if you are after a spotless room it can be disappointing. We didn't really mind because there were lots of kind thoughts (nice flowers on the bed every morning). Breakfast menu was good and even if there is less variety than a buffet breakfast, you won't be disappointed (the pancakes were delicious). Be just careful with the tours offered by the hotel as you have to pay extra costs for the activities (temples, dance) and it's not really clear on the flyer. On the whole we had a good time and enjoyed the staff's friendliness

Delightful rural hotelPosted Jan 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is in the middle of a rice paddy. Hint for ease of arrival email hotel and ask them to send a driver to meet you at the airport. We loved the peace and tranquility of the hotel as it was a good 15 minute drive from the hotel to Ubud. A car would take you into Ubud at no extra charge whenever you needed one. The rooms were fine and serviced beautifully every day, but silly little things like not repairing the broken lights that were lit at dusk, despite pointing them out, not topping up the tea bags, just took the edge of it. Having said that the staff could not have been more courteous and helpful, within the limits sometimes of language. It was a delight to stay. The food was fine, ŵe only had dinner once in the hotel and breakfast is as anywhere else I should imagine heavy on eggs and if you want the muesli you will have to ask for milk and possibly a spoon. We would go back definitely as we just loved the peace and tranquility, courteous staff and lovely ambience.

Very nice!!Posted Nov 25, 2012
The little bumpy road to this hotel made me nervous of my decision to book this hotel. Minutes after I was there, I was fully relieved and convinced it was indeed a thumbs up decision. Located by the rice fields, you will be subject to peace and an enjoyable time here. The pools are great, especially the one right by the rice fields. I forgot to get the name of the receptionist, but you wouldn't miss her for she's too sweet to go above and beyond to give you all the information. She said she was from the nearby village. Anyway, the service was good. The hotel provides free transport to Ubud city, so no issues on that. And for the adventurous ones like me, you can rent a motorbike from them, at an affordable 50k Rupiah / per day. Another unique thing is the made to order breakfast, the pancakes are a must. The omelet, my staple breakfast was a let down but maybe others might like it. the juices were fab. Good place to stay, nothing to worry. :)

Bhunaswari Hotel and SpaPosted Mar 29, 2011
While the hotel itself is set in a very nice area with lots of evening sounds, like frogs and insects, I found the manager to be a bit brusque, for example expressing disapproval when we turned down his invitation for their New Year's Eve gala (at $75 per person). Also, the room we were assigned was below the dining area, so the noise from the wooden chairs scraping the floor above was a little unnerving. To be fair, the staff did allow us to change rooms when we complained. The breakfast buffet was mediocre, but was actually to be expected considering the cost of the stay and the season. Other than these drawbacks, things were good. There was a shuttle van that brought us to the center of town whenever we wanted it. In addition, the scenery from the hotel was very nice with lots of greenery and the air smelled very fresh. The rooms and the hotel were pretty clean, and I don't recall seeing any uncomely insects. Overall, for the price, the hotel was worth it.
