This isn't just a hotel. Its family.”
Staying at Gajah Biru isn't like staying at your typical hotel. The silly formalities and being spoken to like a robot do not exist here. From the moment you arrive, you are part of a family. And this family want you to have the happiest experience during your stay in Ubud. We want to thank the owners and staff from the bottom of our hearts for genuinely making our stay the best accommodation experience we've had anywhere in the world. Prior to this we stayed in an immaculate 5 star hillside villa in Phuket. It was incredible to say the least. But I would hands down pick Gajah Biru any day of the week. It's sheer charm, eclecticism and ability to put a smile on your face is empowering. The rooms themselves are awesome and comfortable, but the outdoor areas are the big winners here. Really capturing the essence of Ubud as that charming, peaceful jungle haven. We'll be back, hopefully plenty of times. We even offered the owners and staff a place to stay should they ever visit Australia. That's how much we feel the need to repay everyone at Gajah Biru. If you stay, please take time to chat to the owner and his wife (long grey hair usually in the funky Round Bar) you can't miss him ;) Surinder, Sumi, their beautiful children and the GB family, thank you infinitely. See you next time!
Excellent service and well located hotel”
A nice villa that is not too far from Ubud Centre. 2 bedroom 2 bathroom Villa Bunda has a small plunge pool. We didn't use the pool because the water looks a bit murky -- perhaps because of the recent rainy days. WiFi and IPTV didn't work when we were staying but not a big deal as we mostly go out exploring Bali. We like the made-to-order breakfast. The rooms feel damp or humid -- especially the bathrooms. A good ventilation system might be helpful. The kids really like the customised nameplate. Very friendly and caring from all staff and owners. Thank you Gajah Biru Bungalows.
Home away from home”
Everything about Gajah Biru bungalows was absolutely fantastic, what the area lacked in proximity to Ubud, staff and facilities made up for 10 fold, offering the guests a home away from home experience from delicious breakfasts, beautifully equipped rooms and facilities, free drop off and pick up service to Ubud central, and a nothing is too much hassle attitude, made our stay in Ubud a memorable one. The owner made us feel like we were part of the family by going that little bit further in every aspect from personalised name plates to welcome us, to a complementary dinner invite in the new restaurant which was fantastic. Recommended in every possible way if you want an experience that will want to make you go back over and over again. Well done Gajah Biru staff and management
Nice stay in a quiet place in ubud”
We had a few great and quiet days in our bungalow. Despite the noise and action of ubud, gajah biru was very quiet and a bit outside of the center. The place is stretched out over a few villas and the main building so you won't run into too many travellers. The staff is extremely friendly and both the welcome and the taking care during the stay was fantastic. Our villa was very good for the price, could see some small improvements in the bathroom but overall no problem. We had quite a few mosquitos, ants and others in the villa but I guess that's normal for a villa and ubud area. Breakfast was okay, nothing too special but coffee can really be improved. We both enjoyed the stay here and had a wonderful time at gajah biru! Thanks
A holiday that feels like home”
Recently we stayed at Gajah Biru Bungalows. When we arrived my daughter was ill. The staff treated us like family bringing her soups and teas. We really appreciated all they did. Nothing was too difficult. The staff organised a day trip for us with their driver. It was designed just for us and was a really good price. We could order food and it was brought to our room with on extra charge. The room was amazing with the biggest bed I have ever slept in. Really cant fault this accommodation. We hope to come back with the rest of the family. Thanks Chris & Caitlin
Beautiful, comfortable, eccentric ”
We stayed a few days in Ubud and loved our time at Gajah Biru Bungalows. The staff are very friendly and treat you like family, not just guests. The breakfast at the restaurant across the street was delicious, with many options. The room decor was pretty and interesting, with the shower opening onto a small garden. It felt like a wonderful combination of luxurious comfort and encountering nature. Would definitely recommend and wish we could have stayed longer!
Stayed at Gajah Biru Bungalows for 2 nights. The place has a very relaxed atmosphere and great staff. We had the veranda suite which is amazingly spacious. The included breakfast in the restaurant next door was tasty and plenty. When we left, we got a custom made metal plate with our names on which was a great surprise. Only downside is the fairly long distance from the town center. I would highly recommend Gajah Biru if you are looking for a relaxed getaway.
Great place to spend a few tranquil nights ”
I got a great last minute deal with Agoda for a veranda suite with a great open room overlooking the garden and pool (windows all around me, plus balcony - truly amazing!), which I enjoyed lot! Ubud is suprisingly busy, congested with traffic, and unfortunately quite (air) polluted, so Gajah Biru felt like being in a little oasis away from the city. Staff was also super friendly and helpful and the security guard noticed that I left my key in my dirt bike and saved it for me (big relief) .. all in all a very positive experience! Very happy guest :)
Didn't want to leave”
My husband and I and our adult daughter stayed at Gajah Biru for 5 nights. Everything was perfect. Airport pickup, delicious snack on arrival, gifts of beautiful metal nameplates, comfy beds, great air conditioning, bottled drinking water supplied, good free internet, a free dinner at their restaurant, beautiful pool, free shuttles to town, great massage (the best I've had), delicious breakfasts served on our private balcony, peaceful garden.... all of this was very much appreciated but the most outstanding feature of Gajah Biru is the exceptional friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We really didn't want to leave!
Everything was perfect ”
Will be staying here next time I come to Ubud. Beautiful villa situated in a quiet spot in Ubud, but close enough to great restaurants (we loved alchemy and lapachamama for vegetarian healthy food). The staff were very helpful and helped organise drivers for us when needed plus they provide a free shuttle into the city. They offered complimentary drinks and dinner in our villa for one of the nights. Everything was great and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ubud now that I have found Gajah Biru!
Come as a friend, leave as family”
Incredible! Above and beyond the level of service and beauty that I have experienced at 5 star resorts. I can't wait to come back. For the first time, I was treated as a valuable human being and friend rather than just a customer. The staff go above and beyond at all times. The bungalows are beautiful with exceptional facilities. Spotlessly clean, gorgeous surroundings and incredible service. I will be coming back and highly recommend Gajah Biru to everyone. To Surindah, Suri, Mandy and all of the staff: Terimah kasih! Kami mencintai kamu!
Great staff, clean and quiet place ”
The staff at Gajah Biru are always keen to help! They organised a lot of our trips, ferries erc and always recommended reliable and good value options. They recommended us better options than we had considered and everything they organised worked very smoothly. Extremely friendly, always helpful, can't ask for better. The place is nice and clean, comfortable and has everything needed. About 20min walk to Ubud but enough closer if you don't want to walk.
We had a lovely stay in the Jasmine villa. The top floor with the view over the private pool and the gazebo, was excellent, all the staff were great, so helpful, big thank you to Gday (?) who was so nice.The breakfast was very good. Especially the banana pancakes and the Indian breakfast. Pleasant walk into Ubud, a little harder to get back, the hill is a bit challenging, but we could have had the courtesy bus pick us up if we had wanted that. We would absolutely go back to Gajah Biru .
Quiet location in rural area”
Tranquil setting away from busyness of Ubud centre. Large rooms with outside seating areas. Well planted small garden areas. Good sized pool. Excellent massage parlour onsite offering range of treatments, would recommend. Good restaurants close by. Walk into Ubud centre approximately 30 mins, transport available from Gajah Biru. Hosts very welcoming and helpful in arranging sightseeing.
Great value ”
We had a wonderful stay at Gajah Biru Bungalows. The staff were friendly and helpful, the gardens and pool were an oasis from the heat, and our room was perfect for our needs. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will likely stay again.
My wife and I were greeted by the manager and it was explained that Gajah Biru is a business that treats everyone like family. Close to Ubud town and local amenities with great food, massage and boutique shops. Quiet location.
Awesome and cosy little place”
Before arrival, Gajah Biru Bungalows were efficient and friendly in the emails, arranging all the requirements that we need, example transport, late check out. It was lovely staying at the place and we really enjoyed it. The decoration gave us a very cosy and homy feeling. Mandy was very welcoming and informative and helpful when we arrive at the hotel. Our driver was there to pick us up on time as well. there were little nice gesture like a name tag upon welcome and an email to thanks us for staying and best holiday and safe flight.
Very kind and helpful staff. ”
I would highly recommend Gaja Biru Bungalows to anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet and peaceful Bali retreat. The staff were exceptional and went out of their way to help make us comfortable. My friend was in the Veranda suit and that was beautiful, clean and with a gorgeous daybed on the veranda. I payed a bit less and had the standard suit which was comfortable but was a little musty and had been roughly painted. This room needed a little TLC. Veranda suit all the way, worth the extra dollars.
Very good value!”
Enjoyed my stay at Gajah Biru! Big room, bathroom with lots of storage space, friendly staff. It's a 20 minutes walk to Ubud. The hotel is embedded in a micro-cosmos of restaurants, spa, laundry place (next day service), shops, taxis...
Special thank your for Gajah Biru Bungalows gift, so surpised and happy to join in
