Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2012

Pondok Pundi is absolutly beautiful, very balinese, decorations everywhere- in a fantastic blend with the sorrunding nature. Whenever you wake up in the morning you her All kind of birds, animals and palmtrees wispering at you. Your breakfeast is served at your Big balcony in front of your room. It is up to you what time it is has to be served. The pool is a bit cold, but yet refreshing. The resort is in the middel of everything in Ubud, but still very private setting behind the street (Monkey forrest Road). We stayed 2 adults and 2 children age 5 and 8 in a spacious room with wiew to the pool, great!!!! We had an ekstra bed in the room, but no problem as the room is . The bathroom is a bit dark, but no problem finding the toilet. There is a tub and that is the only showering in there, so you have to stand up in the tub for just a quick shower- but no problem. The kids love hot tubs! Very kind and great service. Overall notning to complain about. Very private feeling and i guess the prices are a bit high for rooms in the touristic areas in Bali.
We payed about 1000 Dkk.pr.Night incl. Breakfeast and ekstra bed for 4 people.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 201, the room with the biggest balcony in the intire resort, and also the most pri...

Because the hotel is under construction, entering the hotel (or rather, a Balinese home of sorts) is a bit of a strange experience -- a temple-like entrance; you can't easily tell who the staff members are; there is no front desk. The people who do serve you are exceptionally nice, however. The breakfast is served to your room, which may be a bit awkward depending on how many chairs and tables are nearby, or to an unfinished restaurant. Unfortunately, we found a screw (!) in our tomato one morning, which spoiled the otherwise decent quality of the food. The rooms are good and clean, but the bathroom poses a problem. There is no barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. There is also no vent. Ultimately, this bathroom is probably the wettest I've ever had the displeasure of using. Other than that, the bed is good, the mosquitoes restrained, the pool is rarely used, and the Wifi works well. The best feature by far is the location, right on Monkey Forest road in the heart of town. It's worth it for that alone.

We chose this hotel according to the reviews on tripadvisor:) I had a great time there and I would love to be back there again once the construction of the restaurant and hotel lobby is fully finished. Eventhough there is no restaurant inside the hotel, but our breakfast were served on time every morning with super friendly staff, Ketut, who works 24/7 and took good care of us from collected our luggages, booked the excursions, served us food to cleaned our room.You don't have to worry at all about food coz the whole areas are full of great restaurants which you can try out new things every meal. I have to say that I'm very impressed with the architecture and the exterior of the hotel. It's very beautiful and well-functioned. We were staying in room 301 so we had the best view of Monkey forest and super fresh breeze along with our private balcony which noone would walk pass. If you happened to be in room 302 we were the one who kept walking pass and unintentionally disturbed you. The only thing which annoyed me a lot was the loud music all night long from Ubud street and the neighbours who were practicing local music from dawn to midnight. It's seriously too loud. The construction area is a little too messy.

Room Tip: We almost asked for room 101 since I read from trip advisor that it's a private pool. If you sta...

Let me begin this review by stating that the front of this hotel (and hence the actual reception area) is still being built, so don't judge this book by its cover.

This hotel was an excellent choice in the heart of Ubud. First, the staff are very friendly, and I mean that in a genuine fashion. They help with anything they can, and aren't trying to push tours etc on you. For example, we were advised to take a tour from somewhere across the street since it was cheaper than the rate the hotel was able to offer.

The breakfast each morning was fabulous (american or balinese). The rooms are very big, and actually consist of a bedroom and I guess something of a sunroom, which we mainly used for breakfast in the morning. The beds are comfy, everything is clean, modern, and well-cared for. The grounds feel like you're living in a beautiful temple, and the pool is gorgeous and fun to swim in.

Locationwise, you're right on Monkey forest road, which means the monkey forest is less than 5 mins walk down the hill (watch out, I almost got pee-ed on by a monkey on a branch above me! do take care not to get scratched or bitten, there's apparently a rabies problem going around with stray dogs in Bali, I don't know if it's affected the monkeys but I personally wouldn't allow the monkeys to climb all over me or my kids as many people were doing). And the Ubud Palace is about 15 mins walk up the hill, where you can catch some great dance performances at night. The Legong dance we saw there was nice, but after that the Barong seemed very similar. We heard the Kecak is good, but didn't manage to catch it.

All in all, we weren't disappointed in this hotel!

We were uncertain where the inn was, but we made our way pass a construction site, down a flight of steps and through an intricately carved Entrance into a courtyard. That was where we received our keys to the house.

Standing in the middle of the courtyard, the ambience was soaked in rich Balinese culture with the architecture, the parrot and the rooster. The room is very spacious and clean. Ample incense and cleaning eliminates mozzies and bugs presence within house.

Wonderful experience. Am sure the overall feel will be further enhanced with the completion of the construction in the front yard.
