small family run hotel with stunning view

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Booked 3 nights on the recommendation of friends who live in Bali. The view as promised is stunning, its basically family run and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The first room I had although OK and with a comfortable bed was quite basic and not that nice. I stayed on another 3 nights and they transferred me to a better room on a higher level with its own balcony at the same price and it was just so much nicer and really made a difference. The pool is small but very pretty and as I always had it to myself was fine and the garden with all its statues is also lovely. The food is Ok and you could have it in the garden or they brought it to my balcony which being on my own was nice. The main problem is that it is quite a long way - 10/15 minute drive from the centre of Ubud and its really not possible to walk there because of all the traffic on the roads and most of the time - no pavements so not easy to walk so you do have to always take a taxi there and back which will cost 50,000 or 70,000 Indonesian rupees and if trying to return in the rain this went up to 100,000! But the centre of Ubud is full of traffic and so it depends on what you are looking for. If you want the shops/ restaurants and are happy to put up with the traffic this is not the hotel for you and you would be better to book something in the centre but if you want to relax in peaceful and quiet and beautiful surroundings then I would highly recommend this hotel.

Welcome tropical respite

Posted Mar 11, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, quiet spot, gorgeous gardens and calley view, good pool.
Cons: A few upgrades are due to fixtures and the menu was small.
Location: While there are shops nearby and a river to hike to, we went into Ubud for the days and returned to cool off and relax in the late afternoon.
Situated a short cab ride from busy central Ubud, Sayan Terrace is situated overlooking a lush, tropical hillside that drops down to the Ayung River below. We were made welcome and shown to a large room with an equally large covered balcony that overlooked a few restaurant tables scattered around a lawn at the edge of a terrace. Staff were happy to provide room service and we had most meals on our balcony. The menu was small but good as were the prices. The bed was comfortable, surrounded with netting and in an air conditioned bedroom. It was comfy and quiet. The bathroom was fine but the showerhead could be replaced. A few of the fixtures are due for replacement. The grounds are gorgeous and we enjoyed cooling off in the pool after a day in town.

Pros: Everything. It's beautiful.
Cons: We couldn't fault it.
Location: A $5 taxi to Ubud but the resort provides a courtesy car at the time of your choosing each day.
Without a doubt the best small hotel we have ever stayed out. Beautiful room with private balcony overlooking the Ayung River Gorge. Very helpful and attentive service and care all round from this charming family-run establishment. The pool is a work of art and sits in lovely tropical gardens. We loved our stay at Sayan Terrace and will remember it fondly for a long time. Thank you very much!

Beautiful scenery from our villa

Posted Aug 12, 2014 on Hotels
The breakfast service was fast and food was VERY good! Fresh squeezed orange juice not a mixed version of OJ you get usually. The scenery from our bed looking out into the jungle was AMAZING. The sounds of nature and the running river was so soothing. It does not have a private bathroom but it suits the lifestyle. I would go back to the Sayan Terrace again and again. Away from the tourist for sure....

Fantastic views

Posted Jun 6, 2014 on Hotels
We will never forget the views from Sayan Terrace. They are incredible. The hotel rooms are beautifully furnished. Be prepared for a 15 minute trip into Ubud. Also, I can't recommend the hotel restaurant, but there are lots of options in Ubud. Lastly, don't spring for the room with the "private plunge pool" as the hotel has recently destroyed the view from this particular room with new construction.

Quiet and Peaceful Hotel with Wonderful View

Posted Dec 16, 2013
I stayed here with my 8 year old son. We loved it. The view is spectacular and it was such a peaceful location, but still relatively close to Ubud. We went for a walk down to the river and through the paddy fields which was great. Food was good. The rooms are aging a little but great value given the location.

Amazing views, great peaceful retreat

Posted Oct 16, 2013 on Hotels
The view from the terrace was amazing, and it was very peaceful. Breakfast in the room was a treat and the staff were very nice and helpful. I took a hike through the rice fields below and had a great time and great guide. It is a bit outside of Ubud so had to hire a car to drive me there, but worth it to be away from the crowd in such a lovely location.
