Bali might not strike you as camping destination – more a boho-luxury sort of island. But you can put all thoughts about flyaway tent ropes aside at this luxurious jungle retreat, where even the term ‘glamping’ doesn’t quite do the concept justice.
Home to five tented suites and three eco-cabins, Sadat Glamping Tents is the first camp of its kind to open in the artistic town of Ubud – Bali’s cultural heart. You’d be hard-pushed to find somewhere with a greater sense of place; aside from the cream canvas and thatched roofs peeking out of the tropical foliage, this boutique sanctuary brings guests closer to the green environment in the dreamiest way possible. The infinity-edged main pool – featured in Condé Nast Traveller’s ‘most stunning swimming pools in the world’ – appears to flow right into the terraced rice fields below.
Hop on a bicycle and cycle the three kilometres to Ubud’s café-lined centre, or catch a ride in the complimentary shuttle. Even if it’s a restful do-nothing break you have in mind, it’s worth venturing out once in awhile purely for the pleasure of returning to your private haven, bedecked with hand-inlaid furniture, floaty muslin, bamboo bedframes and all manner of artisanal objets d’art, mostly in calm sky-and-earth hues. Who needs solid walls when getting back to nature is this good?
How to Get There
Location is great for anyone looking to get a little away from the center of UBUD. Rice paddies all around which through you get the true feeling of UBUD. Does glamorous camping justice. Hot water in bathroom does need improvement as well as the toilets. The breakfast spread is not vegetarian/vegan friendly unless requested from day before. Quality of breakfast is average. Staff and service is great. Tents are great.
A very special place. Close enough to Ubud city but far enough to get away from all the hustle and bustle. We enjoyed our stay very much and started every morning with a yoga class. Great location, friendly staff, great food. We loved it.
My husband and I stayed for a week last month and we cannot fault the place.
We were greeted so warmly by all the staff and they couldn’t do enough for us throughout our stay.
We stayed in the Oogoh Oogoh tent and it such a wonderful experience. Sleeping to all of the sounds of the jungle every night was magical and the privacy and tranquility by our private pool in the day was exactly what we’d hoped for.
We dined at the restaurant often and the food was delicious. Our highlights were the crispy duck and the spare ribs.
The hotel will arrange for massages by your pool and you really must try this at least once during your stay. We had two.
Many thanks to Buda, Tengo and the rest of the team for making us feel right at home.
Nothing glamerous nor camping about this resort. Just a moldy and dusty tent without any view and ownership without any feeling for proper hospitality.
We have been living in Bali for more then 9 years now and have stayed at all the luxurious resorts in Bali.
So when we heard about sandat we were really excited that we would celebrate our wedding anniversary inthere.
Prior to our arrival I had send an email to them asking for special package in relation to the celebration as I am used that I get excellent service here in Bali.
We decided to go by our own car as we live in Bali. (terrible idea as the road there is absolutely awful). However after a long ride we were happy we arrived and we ready to receive the 5 star treatment the resort claims to have. But the opposite was true. We arrived by car and everyone seemed confused of what to do. No smiles no grating just a weird awkward moment. Noone offering to help with luggage untill we asked nothing. So we felt strange why do they act weird. We eventually got to the check in part which got even more awkward with many unnecessary and questions and reconfirmation of payments which were already been taken care of prior to the check-in date. As we were traveling with 2 kids 5 and 7 we were asked to provide identity(never been asked anywhere else before) we genuinely forgot to bring there ID as we are traveling locally but are accused of not wanted to provide ID because of extra payment. Honestly money is not the issue. We told them my oldest is 7 and they showed a piece of paper saying untill 7 not paid. The worker herself said no need for payment at that point.
After this experience we were thinking let's just get to the tent and get over it. But when we arrived it was just not what we expected. There was no view the tent was just hot and muffy dusty and molded. Seeing this we just decided that we were not happy and asked for a refund of the second night.
The manager instructed us to email the owners with the complained and wait for their decision.
So we did and went into ubud as the resort was just not comfortable anymore.
That night we stayed the night and we just couldn't get a good night rest as we were provided with really thin blankets and a very hard bed. (not the standard I'm used to from a luxurious resort).
The next morning we spoke with the manager and he offered only 50 percent of the 2nd night. Which for us was just not acceptable. So he said he will still need to wait for the owners response.
We went once again into ubud(which one shouldn't have to when booking a luxurious resort). We finally received a email refusing to give the refund of the second night.
Instead we were accused of lies and accusations that we refused to show ID. Which we clearly explained we didn't bring because usually we don't need it.
Actually my wife had put a review on this website before and was again accused of lies and claiming to have offered us more then they have actually done.
Therefore for me these kind of people do not deserve a good review for their lack of compassion for their customers.
For us money had never been the issue. Not to brag but we booked a yacht for my wife's birthday. As long as its worth it I don't mind to spend. But this resort is just simply not worth it. I hope when you read this that you will search abit further as bali has so much more to offer with much better resorts.
Therefore to keep the quality of bali up please do not support these kind of resorts.
We paid 7.3 million for 2 nights, moment we arrived no one greet us, i smile, i tried to shake hand to bring the happy feeling, no smile from the receptionist still, instead they looking at me weird don’t feel welcome at all, they ask passports from my young children ( why? Like i bring their passport everywhere, i live in here and They’re indonesian!) room is small, swimming pool small, we choose sarong room btw, bed also small i think it’s only queen bed, we arrived in the room and the room
Really warm, they expected us to come but we feel no welcome at all! Hotel have nothing but room and restaurant, Wish i can ask refund i can spend that price at many other luxury options here in ubud or other glamping experience!
