I've been a regular at Strawberry Hill for about 10 years, and love the place. It's my piece of heaven on earth, and for me, a visit to Bali is not complete without a few nights at SH.
The cabins, named after Indonesian mountains, are beautiful, a mix of traditional and modern architecture, well appointed, and the gardens beautiful.
The beds and pillows are comfortable, privacy good, and wifi reliable, and rooms have safes for valuables. Cabins don't have aircon, not required at 5000' elevation, which is about 10 degrees C below coastal temperatures, and you're likely to need a light pullover in the evenings.
There is plenty of parking available for cars and scooters.
Breakfast is offered either in your room or in the restaurant, and a good choice is on offer. I always choose the restaurant for the views. On a clear day, both Batur and Agung are clearly visible.
Manager Ira and her team make SH a home away from home. I'll be back again soon.
We stayed here for one night as part of a group tour of Bali. The rooms are in small wooden cabins. Great shower! Some of the group did not have wifi in their rooms, although we did not have any issues in our room. The restaurant dinner service was good. We had the option to have breakfast in our room, which was nice. Be aware there can be considerable traffic noise from the busy road nearby.
Stayed here as part of a group trip. The location of the property is sandwiched between two busy roads and so is noisy. There is nothing to do or see and not anything going on, or no pool etc. The rooms/cottages are fairly basic, but not too bad. The wifi in the room was either none existent or very basic and I told them about the issue, but they didnt make any effort to try and fix it. The food in the restraunt for dinner was fine. Breakfast was pretty boring.
It was unfortunate that the bar and dining area closes at 10pm. We were having a good time playing darts and pool and having some drinks (paying them money) and we were told to leave at 10pm and had closed. It's a shame since there is nothing else around the hotel or anything to do. Theres not much reason to stay here unless you need to. The guy checking me out was visibly irritated that I wanted to pay my bill by credit card and not cash. Which was a bit weird to get annoyed about.
It's a cabin stay, the Hotel is located next to main road to Bedugul lake, I would say it's a good sport to rest, surprisingly peaceful at night (currently there's a road construction there)
Otherwise, it's a good place, quiet/peaceful place to rest
+ Free strawberry,hotel provide free shuttle service (please check with reception), the room is cool, there's a fan in room. Separated bathtub and standing shower. Breakfast can be send to room or have it at restaurant. Restaurant has a cowboy atmosphere

This hotel was the cutest place I’ve ever visited. Each of the rooms were actually little cabins within the grounds and my room had a massive granite bath in it (as well as a shower). The location isn’t great as it’s next to a busy main road so you do hear mopeds struggling up the hill but the hotel itself is really lovely. Food was delicious and the cocktails were lethal! They also had a pool table which was very welcome as helped to pass the evening whilst the weather was rubbish. Breakfast was brought to my room in the morning and was just what I needed to start the day. Would definitely visit again if I was in or passing through Bedugal.
