“different to all other hotels”

Stayed in a bungalow, room 103, and am still puzzled by its set up. There's villas, and a new building with hotel rooms. My bungalow had an upstairs bedroom with a/c - mind the steep stairs - and the bathroom and a lazy room was downstairs. Both 'open air', but with blinds if you needed. The bathroom was a grey, dark room, which was a pity as it's really cool to have a shower and watch the stars above you.

Woke up at 5 AM due to the sounds of all animals in the area. They keep quiet after some time, no worries. But made me feel in the middle of the jungle, loved it. Also the premises with rice fields, the new pool and restaurant were more than fine. Breakfast isn't a very big buffet, but pleas do try their capuccino, loved this excellent cup of coffee! (extra charges)

When you want to get of the beaten track, stay here. There's a shuttle to Ubud centre, tho you can walk if you like. Monkey Forest is not that far as well. When in Ubud, go to the museum, especially when you are there in the wet. (in January I hided there against the rain ;) Staff: some do their best. Internet codes weren't correct, it took me to the next day to get one member of the staff to tell me the right codes. Anyway, this is Bali!

“Bungalow with a padi view”

This is my third time staying in Agung Raka. A nice bungalow all to yourself. The staff is ever so friendly and they can still remember me when I check in. This place is for people who prefer to be surrounded by nature.

“Balinese Bungalows”

The property is beautiful. Accommodation is in the form of Balinese Bungalows facing rice fields. A 2-level bungalow all to yourself. The staff is very helpful. The location is very good. A couple of convenience stores are just across the road. There is an Indian restaurant around 10 mins down the road. Monkey forest, which is one of the attractions is also a short walk from the resort. The resort provided up with complimentary pickup and drop in the town. That was really helpful.

The toilets in the bungalows are at the ground level with the bedroom being on the upper level. The narrow stairs made it a bit uncomfortable for the aged in our group. We had a problem with mosquitoes. The AC in one of the rooms was not up to mark. But the housekeeping guys arranged for a fan which made it bearable.

Food was ok.

“In Balinese Style”

We planned on 3 nights and stayed 7. Why move when you have all you need and more and the people make you so welcome and are just so nice. We found this establishment to be very good value, there was construction going on right beside us, but the rice fields, pool, and peaceful surroundings far out weighed this incovenience.

I do feel that the 21% taxes should already be included in the stated rate on Agoda, as the steep Bali tax really increases the base price, not just of this hotel but of everything in Bali. That being said, the hotel does provide complimentary rides to and from town, wherever you want to go, and pick ups so the inconvenient location is less of an issue. Dewa is very open to constructive advice for improvements, and get issues resolved quickly, like a plugged drain. All bungalows are two storey with bathrooms down a flight of 12 stairs, so if mobility is an issue be aware of this.

Breakfast is delicious, and variety is very good, however other meals need improving, service is prompt and always with a smile.

Overall we loved the tranquility of the rice fields, the lovely wildlife sounds to wake up to and go to sleep by, and having a massage on our terrace was also a wonderful experience. If we return to Bali, we will definately stay again,

“Lovely Balinese experience”

I arrived in Ubud alone after a week-long yoga retreat in Seminya, and booked a standard bungalow at Agung Raka. It was truly a lovely experience - my bungalow was two-levels all to myself, with an air-conditioned upstairs bedroom, and downstairs a seating area with pillows and a table to either have a meal or lounge about with a good book. I also had a separate bathroom that was indoor/outdoor - the sink, toilet, and full bathtub were under a roof, and there was a separate exposed slate shower area. It was really nice and provided a lovely experience.

The bedroom had a queen size bed with a mosquito-covered canopy, and the view from my window was of the hotel's rice paddies. There was a nice pool area with plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas, and spa services were offered under the veranda by the pool. The staff were especially nice and helpful in providing tips of temples I was interested in seeing and when I was ill (I had gotten bitten by a mosquito on my eyelid and it swelled closed - the staff were very concerned and brought me ice and frequently asked how I was doing).

Location is great too, within walking distance to the Monkey Forrest (about 10 min), and a 5 minute walk to the famed Yoga Barn for a drop-in class. Lots of restaurants and shops near by as well. Best part was I booked through the indonesian version of hotels.com called agoda.com, and saved a considerable amount on my bungalow rate (paid only $66/night). There are other bungalows people I met stayed in down the road for $20-$30/night, but they didn't have air conditioning (a must in the heat) nor did they offer half of the lovely accommodations. Well worth the extra few dollars. Terami kasih, Agung Raka!

“Magic”

This really is a wonderful place to stay and highly recommended. The manager Dewa went out of his way to ensure we had a great time. Great location, only a few minutes from town. The rooms are wonderful and the view of the rice fields are to die for. Cant rate it enough, we look forward to going back again

“Highlight of our stay”

Amazing villa's with beautiful views of the rice fields. Villa's are well layed out, with a ground floor with an open air bathroom and a terrace with cushions where you can relax, read and eat. The top floor had the beds and was beautifully decorated. There is a pool (only downside is that there is little shade) and a nice restaurant with friendly service. Location is away from the husstle of downtown Ubud, but right across from the lovely ARMA restaurant. Our stay in Ubud and at Agung Raka was the highlight of our stay in Bali!

“sweet hotel in great location”

Here's a sweet hotel in the middle of rice fields and yet centrally located to go to yoga, visit museums, try some of the best cafes in all of ubud, and more.

“Wow!”

Super impressed by Agung Raka! 5 ladies fit nicely into one of their "superior" bungalows. That's saying a lot! Beautiful views of the rice paddies, gorgeous pools, nice staff. I wouldn't go to the restaurant, it's only mediocre and there are tons of fabulous places in Ubud. My only complaint is that it's far from the center of town, but they offer a free shuttle. Pluses are the outdoor bathrooms (private, but you shower under the palm trees) and gorgeous outdoor seating areas.

“Beautiful grounds.”

The villas here are beautiful; the outdoor shower being my favorite part (private, don't worry). It is on the outskirts of town, but there is a free shuttle (at your convenience - both pick up and drop off). Friendly and helpful staff as well.

“A great find!”

We arrived in Ubud with no reservations and only a name from Frommer's. The staff at Agung Raka were very helpful and even let us check out the room before we booked it. There were five of us in a Bungalow that overlooked rice fields and had a cool courtyard bathroom.

“Excellent accomodation”

Our accommodation was excellent in every respect. There were superb views from all windows and upstairs balcony as well as the downstairs area that was made for relaxing during the day. The pool facilities were first class and the staff were friendly and helpful at all times.
