Photos and Description of this Penestanan holiday apartment

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Total size: 47 square meter (~500 square feet), 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, 1 bathroom adjacent to the bedroom with hot/cold water, 1 living room with single sized day bed which can be converted into a bed for a third person. High ceiling rooms, 4 seated dining table, a kitchenette with a two burner gas stove, refrigerator, sink, and all other necessary kitchenette equipment, office table (in lower apartment), amoire, safety box with electronic keypad, direct garden access. Daily full house cleaning service provided (does not include laundry of personal clothing). Sheets and towels provided and changed by the maid on a regular base. Shared lap pool use (pool size 12.5x6m / 42'x18'). This is the upstairs unit. The downstairs unit is listed under property name: The Studios Ubud II.

The apartment is designed to provide comfort for two people, maybe a couple with a child, for a short term vacation or even a stay of a few weeks.

In addition to a garden restaurant and an internet cafe within the boutique resort complex, many other restaurants as well as galleries, grocery shopping, spas, yoga studios, laundry services, etc. are within short walking distance. Yet, The Studios are set back from the main road. A 120m (130 yard) walkway leads from the parking area to The Studios, passing the internet cafe, the garden side restaurant, through our tropical garden by the traditional Balinese house temple and finally arriving at the tranquility of the pool and studio area with its fabulous nature views. The west side of the property sweeps down to a small stream, overlooks seemingly endless rice fields and has a variety of beautiful palm trees, beautiful orchids and many other tropical plants. Refreshing nature walks can be started right from the back door of the property. The property as a whole is owned by a prominent Balinese family who still practices their traditional spiritual lifestyle at the house temple. Watch Mrs. Candi make her daily, colorful offerings at all corners of the property. While Balinese traditions run high at the compound of the boutique resort, our apartment offers every modern amenity.

All in all a perfect way to experience Bali at its best.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here for a couple of nights, and was pleasantly surprised; I was expecting it to feel cramped at the size given but it felt larger than I had thought, and very comfortable. The gardens are lovely, and the flat was clean and well supplied.

Charming place

  • 5 of 5

After traveling trough Bali I stayed together with my daughter in the Garden Apartment. We loved it - quiet, nice, beautiful garden with a swimming pool and all over the green rice fields - a traditional place with interesting people and good communication. I like to come back.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here. Ubud was our last denstination after three weeks in Bali and Nusa Lembogan and the Gilis. We previously stayed in Sanur ( which we hated, btw), so we were much relieved to discover this apartment was everything we hoped it would be. The apartment itself is quite large with a comfy high quality bed. The kitchen area made it possible to have our breakfast and lunches and even occassionally dinners in. A well stocked grocery store is just a short walk.

The pool was lovely, and a nice respite from the heat. But really the grounds are breathtaking. There is a temple within the compound, and the tropical foliage is well tended. The whole place was just peaceful.

It is a bit of a walk to the main area of Ubud, but taxis are practically always right outside the compound, and cheap. There is a restaurant next door that has great bbq ribs- we ate there twice, so if you don't feel like schlepping into town, there are many restaurants to close from right nearby.

The housekeeper that came everyday was so warm and always smiling- it seems she can just about arrange anything you want- a driver, your laundry done, a massage ( there's a lot of spas close by).

I really recommend you stay here if Ubud is in your travel plans, you will love it.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy to stay during 3 weeks at this place. This place is not far away from the center; about 15 minutes walk. Nice swimming pool. Supermarket about 5 minutes. Not Noisy.

The staff is very polite and helpful. I would like to go there next time.

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This place is great - pictures don't do it justice and is kept lovely and clean by manager each day. Is about 15 minutes walk from the Palace (usual Ubud footpaths and a bit of hill - hence watch with young children or disabilities- but taxis are so cheap). Wee restaurant on site does a great breakfast for about $5 (need cash to pay), other restaurants close by -including Indus which is worth the visit. Spas close by as well ie next door, and within walking distance. Supermarket to stock up is about 100 metres down the road for staples - small kitchenette fridge.

Access to the rice fields is out the back of the property. The compound is pretty and authentic.

Recommend as total value for money for money - and with two apartments available - rent both if a few of you.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in The Studios for the second time for two weeks and, again, we had a fantastic time. This is such a find! The tranquility of the place, the views from the pool overlooking the sawas, the butterflies, flowers and 1000 shades of green. It has it all. Very convenient, too, with restaurants, shops and mini/supermarket nearby. Ubud is only 25 minutes walking away and you can take a taxi if you don't fancy a stroll. Staff is very friendly and polite. We hope to come back to our slice of Paradise!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We spent 16 days at The Studios Ubud in July 2013 and we had a great time there. Booking was very easy and the apartments (we stayed in both) are very comfortable and perfectly equipped. The location is peaceful and relaxing inside a beautiful compound very well kept indeed. It is also quite convenient with plenty of restaurants nearby, one small supermarket next door and a bigger one a bit further down the road, and Ubud centre at walking distance (around 20 minutes). The staff were always very helpful and friendly. So, it was a perfect stay for us and we highly recommend these apartments to anyone visiting Ubud.
