If you are into yoga there is a small yoga studio, available in the mornings, for doing your own yoga practice (up until 10:30am) or if you would like a private yoga class, depending on availability of a yoga teacher on the dates of your stay, this can be arranged.

Right next door, at The Shala Bali, along a short walking track through the rice paddy fields, you will find a beautiful 20 meter salt water swimming pool for your use.

At The Shala Bali you can also buy delicious vegetarian meals from The Shala Bali Cafe which is in the pool grounds. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks through out the day.

Heaven on Earth!!! We loved our stay here. The photos don't do the bungalow justice. Not only is it authentic and Beautiful but it is large and practical too. The bathroom is great. Plenty of hot water. It is very private even out on the veranda. We loved our morning walk to the cafe for breakfast and a swim . Walking through the rice fields every morning seeing the butterflies, birds, lizards and the friendly farmers was a pleasure. Every one at the hotel was so friendly. I hope we will be back again!!!!!

We enjoyed our stay in Ubud but we were not particularly impressed by the bungalow. The location is set in a very lush area and very secluded. The bungalow could use some updating, the pool is quite a distance from the bungalow, the housekeeping service was very prompt but the pillows and bedding should be updated. There was a musty smell in the room and it did not smell fresh. The owner was very nice and the breakfast OMG! The restaurant at the sister property,The Shala, which guests have access to was UNREAL! everything they make is fantastic. Also the Indian restaurant in the front is also phenomenal. We were allowed to use the yoga studio at The Shala when it was vacant and it was fabulous. Great views. Very peaceful.

it is a nice place and good for People who want to get to know the climate of Bali bc there is no aircon. i´m happy that i made this experience! the welcoming wasn´t that friendly as expected. we arrived late (7 p.m.) so that´s ok but also the other day there was not that warm atmosphere from the staff. after that´s a pitty bc it is a really nice place! central but calm! what is really good is the Food! the included breakfast is awesome and also the Restaurant.

Very cute place to stay. It is in a great location - close to restaurants and shops on one side and on the other wonderful walks through the rice fields to an amazing pool.

Darshana Bungalow is just as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. It is a serene, picturesque hideaway. 20min outside the center of Ubud does not mean out of town, it's a pleasant stroll down the road to what is considered the town center with great restaurants and shops all around. However, once you close the gates it does feel like one has left the buzz of the town outside and is in a secret garden full of lovely details and tranqulity. The breakfast area and pool is a beautiful 5min walk through the rice fields. Try the buckwheat banana pancakes. In short, everything was amazing and I hope to be back as soon as possible.

Beautiful bungalows, great location, very well priced, amazing gardens. The bed was massive and really comfortable. All the details were well thought out and just beautiful - we loved the intricate wood carving in our Villa. Felt very private during out stay, shower was good, everything very clean. The Food here is also really good! We highly recommend this Villa and were very happy with this choice. If you do stay hire a scooter to get around easily and also walk down the back of the hotel - there is a little path past the spa that opens up onto massive rice paddies - it's amazing at sunset. The Elephant vegetarian restaurant (only a few hundred metres away) serves great food with an incredible view too.

Our stay at the Darshana Bungalows was incredible! They arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport, which made our transition very smooth and relaxing. Throughout our stay they went above and beyond to help us with anything (renting motorbikes, laundry, massage, etc.) Would highly recommend getting the Balinese massage:) The bungalow itself was beautiful and we enjoyed the short walk to the pool. Our favorite place to grab some food was The Mumbai Station! It's directly in front of the property and so so delicious. The location is perfect for exploring all of the main attractions in Ubud. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and cannot wait to come back. Thank you for everything!
