    This isn't just a hotel. Its family.”

    The amazing owners, the amazing staff, the beautiful bungalows.

    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

    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

    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 :)

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!

    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!

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.

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.

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.
