A friendly low-key eco-resort which supports the local village Keliki”
Our small family very much enjoyed our 3 nights at Alam Sari in June 2017. We booked on the recommendation of friends who had stayed there some years ago and were not disappointed. The resort is committed to eco-friendly practices (incuding limiting the use of plastics), employing local people from the nearby village of Keliki, and supporting cultural maintenance activities in the Keliki. The rooms are large and well appointed, Balinese-style, with air-con and private bathroom (our family room, Mangga, had 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms with a shower and toilet each). The staff were wonderful - super-welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The pool is as good as the pictures look and we spent a lot of time in and around it. The restaurant was open all day and the food delicious and varied enough for all our tastes - some Balinese, Indonesian and more western as well - sometimes we ordered food by the pool, and in the evening we chose to eat at the resort rather than race around busy Ubud. There is a free shuttle into Ubud 3 times a day (9, 12, 5). We went to a dance show one night and arranged for Putu to collect us afterwards (100,000 IRP) - he was ready with a smile when we emerged and we had a late simple supper back at the resort when we returned. The absolute highlights of our stay at Alam Sari were the cultural elements: Putu guided us through the resort's garden and Keliki village the first morning we were there and this gave us a much greater understanding of the Balinese way of life. The tour included a stop at the Keliki painting school - a place for the village painting 'masters' to pass on their cultural traditions. There is no pressure to buy, but if you do, 80-90% of your purchase price is returned to the individual artist - many of them children and young people which helps them financially with their education. The second morning Dewa picked us up for a cooking class - first we walked around some more parts of the village, this time learning about the f
Tranquility at the top of mountain”
I stayed in Alam Sari Keliki with my colleagues for 2 nights and it was a great experience. Alam Sari located far from Ubud town center, but I think that exactly the great thing about this resort. We were surrounded by nature and I feel the experience of being in Bali that I knew in the 80's. The family room was fantastic and beautiful. The bed in main room was I think larger than King size with a lot of fluffy pillows, beautifully arranged with mosquito net and comfortable light setting. Too bad the Jacuzzi near the spa is not maintained too well, although it was perfectly functioning. And I wish the breakfast menu was varied (we got the same menu for 2 days), but the croissant was fresh and heavenly. It was uncommon business trip. We were here to work with Ubud artisans due to our creative working field. And I was hoping the internet connection was better, because we still need to use the internet to do our work. But I guess this is an everywhere problem in Bali, bad internet connection. Overall, I felt sad leaving Alam Sari. I want to stay longer. Yes, I will definitely be back here.
The real Balinese life”
For the 2nd time we have spent our holiday in beautiful Alam Sari resort early October . We had a suite this time between the palm trees with panoramic views ! Again, the staff were very friendly and very helpful. We felt us real guests. At breakfast they served home made jam made from fruit from their own garden. Delicious !! This time we have had a [free ] walking village tour through the middle of the rice fields with guide Dewa. He told us all the interesting things about the organic garden and the small village Keliki where he lives. He also explained much about local Balinese history. Alam Sari support this small village to share a part of the income with the locals. People from Keliki works for Alam Sari. We think this is a very good initiative. A cooking class is one of these initiatives. We followed the cooking class and with the local cook Made we prepared five delicious dishes which we have eated of course! Here we have learned a lot ! All fresh from their own garden and cook on a real wooden oven is quite different from the gas we use at home.
Best hotel of our trip so far. Amazing. ”
My partner and I are backpacking across South East Asia and Bali was one of our stops. We originally stayed in Kuta which is a hustly-bustly part of Bali. Wanting to get away from the many tourists and hawkers and see some culture we booked a few nights at Alam Sari Home-stay. After a 2 hour journey to Alam Sari we arrived at the hotel and were greeted by extremely friendly and attentive staff. Gusti - Our home-stay host- arrived at the hotel to take us to the home-stay. He explained to us at we would be staying with a Balinese family and wanted to check that that was OK with us. I thought we'd be staying at the hotel but didn't have a problem with this as I thought it would give us the opportunity to see some genuine Balinese culture. The trip to the home-stay was about a 5 minute drive from the hotel and about a 10-15 minute walk with lots of steep hills so you certainly have to be fit to manage it. We arrived at the home-stay and were greeted by the whole family who were all smiles and genuinely lovely people. Our room was MASSIVE with a four-poster bed, decent sized bathroom with a bath and a shower but no hot water which was fine with us. The home-stay is situated in the middle of Keliki village, surrounded by rice fields and temples. Just walking down the street the locals will go out of their way to say hello to you and are all extremely friendly. A couple of downsides are: 1)This place is quite remote with no public transport available so you have to get a taxi if you want to go anywhere other than the village. 2) There are a lot of dogs in the village who are allowed to run free from their homes. They are quite wary of foreigners and WILL bark at you but they are not aggressive. They're also very noisy at night times. Overall though, our stay here was just lovely and if we ever return to Bali this is where we will be going!!
If it's available, STAY HERE! Alam Sari has 5-Star Service, Beautiful Property & Delicious Food”
My family and I travel full time (@RetiredToddlers). I booked this place after reading reviews, but was a littler nervous not knowing what to expect. The property is far better than any pictures I've seen. The kids had a blast at the pool (which has 3 levels, making it perfect for all ages), the food was fresh and delicious and the rooms were nice. But the BEST - the service. Professional, helpful, delightful...they go above and beyond with every single thing. Truly 5+Star Service. The drivers also - they were excellent (which was especially important to me, given we had 2 young kids with us). I also enjoyed the yoga room (fully equipped) that they had onsite. The grounds are just beautiful...it's quite secluded and nice. It is up some stairs, but it was never a problem, as they carry all your bags for you. My kids are 3 & 1 and loved it. We also did the free Village Tour, which was wonderful....a walk through the organic gardens and rice field and village. Definitely couldn't push a stroller, so be prepared to carry tired legs if needed- a baby carrier did the trick! The spa services were nice. The pedicures were decent (I prefer a bit more time on the leg rub!), but the Boreh? massage/scrub treatment was really nice. The included breakfast was fresh & made to order- quite a treat. We ate at the restaurant a lot and didn't have a bad meal (of course, some were better than others!). The only downfall was the wifi was very slow & cut out a lot. Traveling around Bali now, I've come to realize this is more of a Bali problem than Alam Sari. It's just a bit frustrating because we need to work when our kids naps and it's hard when the internet isn't good. They also offer a free shuttle to town a few times per day (about 15 min drive). And anytime we needed anything, the staff was always willing to help and go above and beyond I can't recommend this place enough...book it! You won't regret it. Hope to go back someday soon!
Quiet, beautiful hotel”
We loved the surrounds at the Alam Sari & our room (Villa)was beautiful & clean, staff were friendly & it was very relaxing & tranquil. The hotel is getting a little older & needs some maintenance & not every room has the garden bathrooms though. Our children are 4, 3 & 8 months old & they were all happy, the older ones loved all the wildlife & swimming pool plus they have some games & lego in the reception area for children to use. If you want a peaceful experience away from town & enjoy the free shuttle when you're ready for a little more hustle & bustle then this hotel is beautiful & perfect. The village of Keliki (where Alam Sari is) is said to be very beautiful & the hotel offers a free tour of 2-3 hours but unfortunately this was not suitable for us with three children being so young but I would have loved to do it.
The dreamt hotel - amazing stay ”
This was an absolutely amazing stay. We loved the staff, the location, organic food, spa, nearby village, complimentary services, children friendly swimming poll right next to rice terraces and many more things. It was a real eco bless. We loved that every ingredients used in cooking comes from their garden or the village of Keliki and that staff really enjoy working at the resort, also they're very attentive to children and the village tour is a blast - such priceless things matter the most:) Once we'll be in Ubud again we'll definitely stay here again :)
Very pleasant stay in green Bali hills”
We had a very pleasant stay during our stay in Alam Sari. We choosed this hotel because of its remote location 10km north of Ubud, neaby the village of Keliki, and only 3km from Tegalalang terraces. The hotel environment is very pleasant, atop a river deep valley surrounded by forest,and the view from the restaurant, swimming pool and rooms, is great,especially just after sunrise.
Taste the country life”
The staff at Alam Sari were wonderful and friendly and eager to interact with our 1 year old. We enjoyed seeing a different side of Bali and are glad we went on the village tour which included being shown through the hotels' garden (we learned a thing or two), a walk through the rice paddies and to a local artist's house to see the painting style (no pressure to buy though). The hotel is 15-20 minutes from Ubud which has it's pros and cons but the hotel runs several drop-offs and pick-ups throughout the day which we utilised several times. The massages were great, the food simple but with enough choices and flavoursome and the pool with a lovely view. The nearby road is noisy however it's no worse than the cows mooing or the roosters crowing...all of which one gets used to. The rooms were clean and lovely with house-keeping daily. We really enjoyed our stay at Alam Sari
The best resort we stayed in on Bali”
WE've been travelling through Indonesia for a month but this was absolutely the best resort we stayed in:) we loved ever little thing about abour our stay there, especially the location, design and staff:) If you are going to Ubud you should stay in Alam Sari :)
Beautiful and full of Balinese warmth”
I loved this place and would go back in heartbeat. It was a great welcome to Bali with such genuine smiles and beautiful surroundings. The breakfasts were delicious, the pool was gorgeous and the people were amazing. What I loved most of all was the real community feeling about the hotel. The staff come mostly from the village of Keliki on the doorstep of the hotel, and there's a free village tour every day to show you how life in Balinese village really works. It's a really down-to-earth, non-touristy experience. The staff will all thank you for supporting their village by staying at the hotel - which is really touching. It's just all pretty magical. Definitely go if you get the chance :)
Great place for relaxed and peaceful vacation”
Getting to Alam Sari was a long 1.5hr drive from the airport. But once we arrived, our tiredness all went away as the hotel is so quiet and serene on top of a hill. The Standard room is like a mini villa, and the bathroom is huge with a garden in it! There are only 12 rooms here, so the staff are all very friendly and caring. Though there is no shopping or eating places within walking distance from the hotel, the free shuttle to Central Ubud 3 times a day is good for us. So once we finished our shopping and eating, coming back to the quiet and peaceful hotel - is just to rest and relax, and view the beautiful scenary from our room and hear the nature sounds. The free village tour is so good, all guests should try it as we learnt so much about the Balinese cultures and traditions.
Perfect relaxation I can't bear to leave!”
Staff were friendly, though alittle surprised the ops mgr at check in offered to carry only my lighter items instead of my 10kg backpack esp I'm a petit single traveller. Doesn't offer much info till I enquired abt free shuttle n walking tour. Am also surprised they have no maps of Ubud/ Bali... Note free shuttle is at 9, 12 and 5pm. Taxi (abt 30mins) by the hotel to Ubud ctr is 85,000rp. This is much reasonable than the 200,000rp some in city tried to quote me! Walking tour is 9am for 3 hours ard the village. So if u join in, it means R&R in hotel all day unless you are prepared to pay for transportation out. Likewise, unless one is willing to pay for trspt in, else dinner is gonna be at hotel. Prices are abit higher but food is v good. Balinese music is played in evenings. The hotel is abt 2km away from Ceking, the rice terrace. Wake at 5am n have a abt 45min slow stroll to watch sunrise. Once u reach the market at T junction, turn left n continue. Food is excellent, portions were good. I had Balinese grilled fish one day n chicken the next. Simply love it! Prices are reasonable but am not sure y it's a 21% (govt 10% + 11% svc) taxes on the bill! Bfast choice decent. Fruit juice, a fruit salad n main (eggs/ bakery/ Indo) Pool is big, ideal for children, some props n clean towels are provided. Room is clean, love the 4 poster bed. There's hair dryer, tea making, laundry service. There's even a welcome letter on ur bed by the GM! Had Balinese trad massage 1h, the main therapist who worked there for 8yrs is really gd. But if only they offered a ginger tea aft the treatment will be perfect. In all, the stay was lovely n I would gladly return.
beautiful location in the mountains”
We found the views from this hotel to be breathtaking. The emphasis on being environmentally friendly was also appreciated. The coolest part of our stay was taking the walking tour of the nearby village of Keliki with a guide from the hotel. You got to walk through rice paddies, see a traditional painting school in the village, and get a history lesson from the guide. Lots of amazing photo opportunities!
Alam Sari was the perfect choice for us. We decided to eat mostly outside of the hotel, but breakfasts were ok. Shuttle service was helpful, beacuase the hotel is quite far from the Monkey Forest and whole city. The rooms were clean and the staff was very nice and helpful.
Relax among the ricefields”
Alam Sari is an oasis of calm. The swimming pool is lovely, the view amazing and the staff friendly and helpful. We had some time in the hotel relaxing - reading, swimming, generally chilling. Staff also helped us arrange cars for trips out, including their free shuttle in to Ubud. Food was delicious with a nice range to suit all tastes. The fruit juices were great.
Had a great stay at Alam Sari, the staff were very attentive and helpful, the location was perfect just outside of Ubud whilst still being easily accessible. Would definitely stay again.
Experience Balinese home stay with nice host”
When I booked, I though "home stay" is a kind of room with Balinese decoration. Actually, it is not belong to Alam Sari Keliki Hotel. It's a program that the hotel offer for us living in local families. I though it's not good but when I came, they are new-built rooms in a compound of the family. It's has beautiful garden inside. It's a great experience. However, the location is quite far from central Ubud. It takes time to access visit places.
HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP”
In our stay in Ubud, we wanted someplace a bit further from the hustle and bustle, and I can honestly say this place was a gem. What sets them apart is the welcoming atmosphere and the overall staff, who would take our baby and play with him so we can enjoy our meal. The place is beautiful, as well as the accommodations. I would highly recommend their restaurant as the food and included breakfast was also outstanding . Our kids really loved swimming in the pool. It was nice to have the shuttle to the center of Ubud, multiple times a day, but the last pick up at 5:30pm is a bit early, but is nice to have since the Taxi prices can be 100K-150K to get from Ubud to here.
Alam Sari Keliki, has the best view, food, location to offer, lovely and friendly staff!
