We stayed at Gajah Biru twice, first on arrival to Ubud and then again as a stopover from Mt. Batur to Gili Islands. Tucked away from the main road of Ubud yet close enough for people to be able to walk it to the main road, Gajah Biru (meaning Blue Elephant) is very well located. They have tie ups with local drivers and taxis and will be happy to arrange pick ups from and drops to the airport. In fact, the hotel had arranged for our transportation to whatever sites we wanted to visit from Ubud. The property itself is not large but is extremely cosy. The number of rooms are limited but the rooms are large. We had booked a family room that was very close to the swimming pool and had its own balcony. On our second visit we had the private family suite at the back of the property, which also features a private pool. The rooms are fairly well appointed, especially the more expensive private family suite. However it was the hospitality of the staff I recall most. Whether it was something they needed to fix or a service they needed to offer or simply a good morning wish, the staff was always super friendly. They were trustworthy enough for us to leave our daughters at the spa for a massage while my wife and I went for our own spa treatment to the nearby Tjampuhan Spa. The only thing this hotel lacks is a restaurant. Nonetheless they will give you breakfast coupons with which you will have to walk less than 50 metres to a restaurant at the beginning of the lane where you get excellent breakfast. The staff at Gajah Biru will also serve you food from the restaurant for a relaxed in-room dining experience. In addition, this place is within walking distance of a bunch of warungs where we (I in particular) gorged on excellent Nasi Goreng that was washed down with Bintang Radler. If I had to sum up, I'd say Gajah Biru is an excellent place for people who are looking to spend some quiet time in comfortable and clean surroundings without having to burn a hole through their wallets. For us, it was everything we had hoped it would be.

We booked & stayed in the double Jasmine bungalows with the private pool, and really enjoyed our stay. Gajah Biru is located down a laneway with one-way traffic, and though there's no immediate car parking at the front, there's a shared space quite close by. The bungalows are not super shiny & new, however they were comfortable, a nice design; fairly spacious, clean and tidy with ample cupboard space and good sized bathroom areas, patio/verandas and reasonable air-con. Also supplied with water dispensers. The staff were friendly & helpful. The grounds were lovely, green and well tended. The spa massage service was good value. There are some nice shops & cafes nearby, and it's about a 20 min walk into the centre of Ubud, and about 15 mins to the Bintang Supermarket ... The only issue was that the mattresses could do with being updated, as the springs felt worn and a bit lumpy.

Had a nice stay at Gajah Biru during our quick business trip in Ubud, despite the small road and the lack of parking spot. We had a spacious veranda room, and I just loved how serene and peaceful it was there. Friendly staffs, nice breakfast, big pool, cute cats, and I had a very amazing 2-hour massage.

Visited from 1st December to 5th December 2019.Small Good Rooms, Loved the Hospitality of the staff, but on the first night when we reached at 2 AM it looked like scary place coz very less lighting was there. Also if you are afraid of insects then you must not go to this place though i don't mind small insects coz place is full of greenery and all rooms made of wooden. But I am afraid of lizard 😑 it was there in room. But if you want a peaceful place to stay you can stay here. Otherwise at approx.2700 INR (40 USD) (we paid for gajah biru) per day you can also find many other places in UBUD to stay.

This quaint resort was offered on a travel website at a huge discount, dropping the price from over $300 AUD per night to about 69.00 - and at that price it was worth it. Any higher and you would be compelled to complain. Set in an aging bungalow the two bedrooms are in need of painting and the setting is more shabby than chic, the pool is ok, and you do have a private pool so that was nice. It was all just a little run down and no one came with clean towels or sheets, there is no breakfast. That said you can get out and about into areas of Penestanan to visit cafes and gelato bars and local eating places with ease. So yes, consider it if it is on special, but full price forget it. The staff on the last day were very helpful but the first two days they were definitely missing in action.
