"This is a gem"

We originally booked for 3 nights but extended to 5. The hotel is located at the end of a lane, Gang II the entrance to the lane is beside Sukma 6 this is handy to know because the hotel is new and drivers had trouble locating it. At the end of the lane is a three storey hotel with two rooms per floor, the hotel is ony one year old and backs onto a river, there is a 100 foot drop to the river and the setting is mature palms, bamboo and massive fruit trees, the squirells were a joy to watch playing and feeding in the trees. The hotel is in a very quiet residential location but very close to Ubud, a short walk. Has a great small pool. Our room had single beds plenty of hanging space, large fridge and large bathroom. The list of facilities for this hotel is incorrect, there are no kitchens in the room, pillow top beds, in room coffee machine etc and the hotel is going to rectify the listings, so make sure you confirm with the hotel. There are mosquitoes so come prepared, the general stores sell repellent cheaper than in Australia.

We stayed at Cendana for two nights on a trip to Ubud. It's very close to the Monkey Forest and the main attractions in downtown Ubud. The only drawback is that the noise from the surrounding bars makes it hard to sleep late at night.
"Beautiful grounds, Nice Staff"

The girls who work here were fabulous, especially at the front desk. The rat of the staff were good too, but they picke the right ones to be out front. The grounds are lovely, breakfast was better than average for sure. The TV program could be better and the shower temperature was up and down

beautiful, serene small resort, attentive staff and very clean rooms and surroundings. Only drawback is that it is hard to walk to the center of Ubud (not that it is so far away but the road is very narrow and the traffic heavy).

Clean and beautiful hotel. Perfect location. But during the stay in around New year it might be too much for the staff. They forgot the towels and some details. They only have 10 hairdryers which was inconvenient for my girlfriend.

The staff were very kind and accomodating. I injured my leg before my trip and they took time to ask how I was doing and bring me bags of ice to reduce the swelling - above and beyond! They called for us and arranged drivers and spa services. We loved it so much we stayed an extra day. Our room had a lovely view of rice fields and nice seating area/balcony.
"Close to the beach (5 min walk), ask for renovated"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Dec 7, 2012
Good location, friendly staff. Good breakfast, nice pool. The renovated standard room is so much better compared to the not renovated cottage (deluxe room). Both AC, but the bathroom is much nice, brighter and more light! Matresses not so great - but that depends on your back ;)
"A good place to stay in Ubud"

We stayed at the Sahadewa for 11 days.
Plusses - located reasonably close to major places one would want to go in Ubud. They also have a free shuttle in the morning/early afternoons to places within Ubud (a "taxi" would cost 30,000 Rupiah, or $3.50). Friendly staff that got to know our names and preferences. Easy walk to nearby ATM (essential in Bali) and convenience stores. WiFi is limited to main lobby area, but hey, you're on vacation. Room was clean, quite and comfortable.
Minuses - It is not a five star hotel, so you will find a few things that might bother you if you are hoping for one. It is on a busy road, but you don't hear the noise in your room. No WiFi in your room, if you must have it (plenty of restaurants have WiFi, by the way).
While in Ubud, we saw plenty of other places one could stay. Many are more conveniently located, but priced that way. Many are lower in cost, but you seem to get what you pay for (one place advertised that it had both hot and cold running water). We would stay there again.
