Fantastic experiences to stay at suly hotel. Very peaceful place for meditation. Many thanks for Mrs.Rini as she was being very friendly and a very good mentor even for 1 night stay. Hope can go back to visit ubud & stay here again.
We visited this hotel after staying in Legian. We saw the reviews for this place as well as the pictures and thought we would not be disappointed - we were but it didn't ruin our trip. Nothing inconvenienced us but it became a little annoying. Firstly, it was like a ghost town there were hardly any other people in the hotel. I guess this was a sign of things to come. On the first night we had a game of 'guess the stain' both the bedding and bed sheets had foundation & other stains. Not acceptable. This was swiftly complained about and rectified. The room had numerous scratches and marks on the walls- needs a serious bit of painting. Despite it being so quiet there, our room was right next to the air-conditioning outside units so this kept us awake for some time. The staff albeit very friendly and polite were in-effectual. Breakfast was a disaster. Cold coffee (literally cold). Cold toast. Cold eggs. We asked for eggs benedict three days in a row. We were told on each day they had no bacon, ham or sausages. There was no hollandaise so it was just egg on toast. The egg was very over done even though we asked for soft yolks every day. The fruit platter and fresh juice was nice though. There was a wedding on our first morning at the hotel, so screaming children but we didn't stay long. The main issue was that for the following 2 days there were bits of polystyrene, plastic cups and general rubbish all over the stage area next to the restaurant. An eyesore and not acceptable. We were told there would be a wedding when we checked in, and the staff knew we had a car. Although when we got to our car at 9am it had been completely blocked in. The staff were friendly and eventually moved the other cars.... but common sense would have been to prevent this in the first place. They had parking staff but they obviously didn't put 2 and 2 together. The pool was quite nice though and the hotel was a short drive from Ubud which was good. We had some superb dinners in Ubud which made up for the poor breakfast. Do not attempt to walk as the pavements are a death trap so you have to walk on the busy road. We tried it and turned around. The laundry was also reasonable, although they did try and tell us to come back in 2 days! We said that impossible as we'd be on another island by then.
So all in all, although the price was good it's not worth it. We stayed in much nicer places for a bit more.
Nice place to stay some time, to get relax practice yoga and meditation. We were there one week and had a retreat, the staff supported very much and helped us a lot serving Vegetarian food and dishes as we like.

This place has seen better days, that's for sure. It's really does feel like it's slowly going out of business. I am pretty sure we were 2 out of 4 guests staying in this hotel and still our experience was terrible. This review needs to be PRO / CON style as I fear going off track otherwise.
Cons - Shower not cleaned upon check in (someone else's hair clogging the sink hole and the worst case of soap scum on the shower glass I've ever seen), pool was murky and algae was growing on pool steps (slipped one day trying to get out), lifted and dangerous wooden planks in pool area, broken pool chairs, unkept gardens, breakfast buffet is not good and cold, no English tv channels, sometimes reception staff not around, internet non existent in rooms, very dark at night, felt a bit horror movie-ish, no tours available (not that we were made aware of anyway), stains on sheets, I don't even think any yoga was happening whilst we were there (again we were not informed), only 3 items for lunch and dinner, squeakiest bed in history (friend in next room could literally hear me getting in and out of bed and rolling over in bed), friend who also stayed received water bottles in room when it was cleaned and I did not, very very smelly corridor near our room (we think it was coming from a room across from ours that staff would visit sometimes, the door was always ajar( to be frank, it was quite odd), ended up eating noodles (like ones we brought from the supermarket) for breakfast on the last day as limited breakfast menu (that was only after we went looking for staff to try and order our breakfast.
Pros - quiet location and good air con
I visit Bali regularly so I know what standard I can get for $40 and this is well below par. I truely hate leaving negative posts but this hotel was the absolute pits.
I went there with a friend, and we stayed in a room with 2 single beds. The room overall is considered large, but the facilities are average, please do not go there with high expectation of a luxury resort. From my understanding, the resort is mainly managed by students learning to be in hospitality industry. Most of them can speak english, but a bit slow. As long as you are patient, you will understand what they are speaking. As for service, I would rate them as 4/5 for the students.
As for the room, we were surprised that there is a shower facility room, a bathtub room, and a separate toilet room. FYI, most of the furniture are wood, and there might be some ants? Luckily for us, none of us were not bitten or have any rashes. Btw, if you plan to walk from the resort to main Ubud city, it is definitely more than 30 min, probably 1 hour. But if you take a taxi/car, it is just 10-15 min drive. We also tried their massage service, and we both enjoyed it, and the prices are reasonable.
As for the breakfast spread, I would said that it is average and a mix of asian/western food. Depending on individual preference, I personally only tried some food (toasted bread, butter, scrambled eggs, fried mee, and simple coffee/tea). I personally tried their yoga class on my last day in the morning. From my understanding, most of the yoga instructors are volunteers.
Overall, if you don't mind a simple stay and you can consider.
