Five years ago we booked out all 12 rooms in Alam Shanti for my husband's 50th birthday. We all had a lovely stay with wonderful memories and a number of our guests have returned since. I wanted to return here for my 50th but a number of rooms were already booked so we booked out Alam Jiwa- also an excellent choice and just as beautiful.
We stayed in Yamuna this time which was perfect for my husband, daughter and I. The huge room, balcony, bathroom, with the extended garden leading out to the private pool, was like our own totally private villa overlooking the rice field. We had the pool to ourselves all of the three days we were there (it is shared with the room above) which was a bonus.
The gardens and rooms, are truly Balinese with exquisite designs, furniture, flowers and space.
Service is always discrete and with a smile. The included breakfast served on your balcony is always a delicious treat and afternoon tea is included.
This was our 5th visit to an Alam and it won't be our last. The village of Nyukuning is always wonderful to walk through, however, it has become much busier now with more restaurants and hotels opening up.
Thank you to all of the lovely staff-especially Kadec, who welcomed us back with open arms:)

It's a lovely hotel, beautiful buildings arranged in a nice garden or close to rice fields. Quiet, clean, just a little Paradies. Nice staff.

No TV, which was great. The place is just too beautiful to waste time with TV programs!

Back again for another visit to this paradise in Nyuh Kuning Village in Ubud! Have stayed here many times and it is now like returning to family! We always try to stay in Yamuna/Gangga rooms - nothing like having your own private pool, but all the rooms are lovely. However, it is the wonderful staff that make this place so special! They can't do enough to make your stay wonderful. We will be back, of course! Can't wait to see the new reception area when it's finished!! (Does that sound like an excuse to come back very soon!! )

Stayed at Alam Shanti in Yamuna room with husband and two boys. There is nothing I could fault about this place apart from the fact that we only had two nights. We had a pool to ourselves that is shared with the upstairs room but it was unoccupied while we were there. The staff were beautiful, location was very close to monkey forest and restaurants. Getting into the centre of Ubud was very easy going through the monkey forest but we did get a bit lost on the way back. They offer a free shuttle service into town and back though. The decor and architecture was very Balinese and so lovely. A very peaceful and beautiful place to stay. I would stay again in a heartbeat but next time for longer. Highly recommended!

We have just had 5 nights at Alam Shanti - just on the south side of the monkey forest. I can't recommend it highly enough.

We stayed in the Gannga room/suite, with lovely marble bathroom, Balinese features, and deck over looking rice paddies and sports fields. Breakfast delivered to our room and enjoyed on the deck each morning was a highlight.

The Gannga room shares a generous sized pool and well kept pool facilities with one other suite downstairs. So not just yours, but plenty of space so you won't be tripping over each other.

Staff were impressive, friendly and also extremely attentive and discrete. They were also great with our 3 year old, including providing a staff member he was already friendly with to baby sit for a few hours.

The hotel is part of the Alam Indah chain, and I would expect similar high quality from all.

There is a spa on site - I had two massages in the pool side massage rooms. Absolutely delightful, highly professional, and well priced.

Being on the South side of the monkey forest it is a little cut off from the rest of Ubud. This is a good thing - Ubud was crazy with tourists! There are nice shops and restaurants in the village around the hotel and the hotel provides a free shuttle into Ubud. You can taxi back for about 50-70rp, depending on traffic, which can easily take 20 mins to go a very short distance.

Tip- avoid the traffic jams. walk 10 min along the shared use path (scooters and pedestrians) just outside the monkey forest to get to the south end of Ubud. Get a taxi from there or continue on foot. Take a torch for the return trip at night (supplied in your room).
