Overlooking the Ayung River gorge and terraced rice paddies near Bali’s spiritual center of Ubud, the intimate, 35-villa resort pays a strong homage to the island’s architecture and history. The accommodations have traditional thatched roofs, carved Balinese doors, open-air living and dining areas, garden ponds, and day beds around their private pools. The romance quotient is high, whether it’s seen in the dreamy four-posted beds in the villa bedrooms or the dinners-for-two that can be arranged in private lounges or under the moonlight. The restaurants and bar serve global fusion cuisine in stunning open-air settings, while the spa offers traditional Balinese treatments.
In the Area
The hotel runs a shuttle to Ubud four times a day, allowing guests to shop at boutiques run by Indonesian artisans and explore the traditional architecture and royal palaces. A favorite local restaurant is Ibu Oka, a hole in the wall beloved for its succulent Balinese roast suckling pig. The privately owned Neka Art Museum houses a fabulous collection of Balinese paintings, while the main attraction at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary needs no introduction. A bit further afield, the John Hardy workshop is open to guests who want to see the gorgeous silver baubles being made, tour the compound’s organic farm, and enjoy a five-star lunch.
How to Get There
We had such an amazing honeymoon at Puri Wulandari. Every minute of it was magical and exceeded any expectation we ever had. The staff was super friendly, kind and respectful. We stayed for 2 weeks and saw as much of Bali as we could with the help of the recommendations from the Puri Staff and our Driver. We hope to be back one day. We highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway for couples.
We stayed in Bali in Puri Wulandari and we couldn’t have asked for something better. It was our first time in Bali and we wanted to experience a resort in the jungle, and this resort has private villas with amazing views perfect for a relaxing day at your private infinitive pool. We were impressed with how big it was and the service was incredible. We felt very well served all these days and the staff makes sure to learn your names to give you a personalized service. The food was excellent too, they don’t have a breakfast buffet but they do offer a great variety of dishes, all very tasty! They have two restaurants and honestly the prices are not expensive( compared to local restaurants they may be, but compared to us prices no). The drinks tend to be a little bit overpriced but that is because they are mainly imported.
I read so many reviews about the hotel mentioning the bugs. It is a JUNGLE resort so bugs are inevitable. But even like that, we didn’t feel they were any mosquitos and the staff will always pass by before dawn to make sure to light up mosquito sticks to keep them away. They will be asking for tours, ( some people think they are pushy) but as long as you communicate straight what you want, you’ll be fine. We took two tours with them and I strongly recommend the walking Morning tour in the rice fields, it was a very interesting experience and our guide was excellent!
Overall, the resort was amazing and we were very happy with our staying there.
Puri Wulandari lives off its spectacular location on the Sayan ridge, with breathtaking jungle views. The villas with their private plunge pools are huge, quiet and very romantic. The place isn’t new, but doesn’t feel dated. In traditional Balinese style, it adds to its charme.
The staff are all friendly and helpful and memorize your name, giving it a personal touch.
What could be improved is the menu and wine list, which are uninspiring and, given the abundance of great dining options, don’t entice people to dine at the Puri. To be fair, we had one dinner there and the food wasn’t really bad. Also, the Balinese. coffee served for breakfast is just very weak. Espresso type coffee is served, but at an extra charge.
Considering the location, the service and the size of the villas, the Puri Wulandari actually is a good deal.
So when looking for a “reasonably” priced romantic place, with no higher expectations towards the cuisine, Puri Wulandari can be highly recommended.
5 stars in every respect. Food was amazing. Views - fantastic. Staff were the best. We have stayed in 6, 5 star resorts in Ubud, and Puri is in the top three. The SPA was excellent and well priced. The pool villa was the best we have stayed in. Very spacious and clean. Bed was a little hard, but still managed to get a good nights sleep. This resort is very quiet and is very highly recommended.
My friend and I spent 5 nights at this beautiful resort in a pool villa. Location is overlooking the Ayung river and the view is amazing.. we were in a villa in the top row so our view from villa and pool was of the tops of the trees and mountains beyond. Staff were kind , courteous and gentle and I can’t speak highly enough of them . Breakfast over looking the beautiful main pool area and mountains was spectacular. We asked for lattes and at first they came to us pretty week so we requested a double shot and they were happy to accommodate and from the next day on they remembered our preference. We made use of the shuttle service into Ubud centre and had room service on the night we arrived . Food was delicious and even though we were there in the quiet season everything was fresh and service great. We will definitely return to Puri Wulundari
