Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staff were all amazing. Rooms perfectly spacious, clean, inviting. Poolside has beautiful views across the valley, perfect for a peaceful reading retreat or having a few cocktails whilst sunbaking near friends. Easy/cheap/safe to get local taxis from reception into Ubud town (maybe 20min drive) and scooters for the more experienced on Bali roads. Wonderful, easy location giving you privacy and paradise just outside Ubud proper with great access to Ubud centre.

Great place to stay if you’re looking for complete isolation in a heavenly location. Amazing, friendly staff on ground. Shout out to all the cooks and drivers : Ari , Coco and Dewa. Booked the hotel via Book Yoga retreats . Retreat was not as planned according to itinerary nor program. Very disappointing. Program promised Meditation & Healing - none of that. Meditation was composed of silent sessions mostly. There was no Healer available upon request contrary to what was promised. The one healing session was a random , coffee-cup reader. Sunrise and Sunset yoga were good. Professional Yoga Instructor. Great flow and tailored sessions. For the meditation part, more proficient English would be required to affect the overall experience. Just disappointing not to have the complete program delivered according to expectation. So many places outside for yoga, healing and meditation you can go to in Ubud. Very cheap Prices too. Great food. Accommodated my VEGAN requests very efficiently. Thank you to the cooks and staff on ground. Last but not least, organisers were not very open to communication nor were very nice about my complaints. Would have affected the overall experience. Conclusion : If you are looking for a quiet, place , 20 mins from centre then go for it. Do not book a Retreat Package unless you are a complete beginner in the world of Yoga, Meditation & not too fussed about the Healing aspect of the program.

We arrived here around 7pm to a nice welcome from reception. First impressions are good. We were shown to our valley view suite which also impressed upon first glimpse... And unfortunately for us, that’s about where all the positives stopped. After a day of activities and travel, we unpacked in our room and wanted to have a nice hot shower and relax. But this wasn’t the case. My partner enjoyed about 3-5 minutes of hot water until it went freezing cold. We rang reception to sort this problem but there are no staff here past 9pm, just a security guard who speaks little to no English. He came and felt the water, then in broken English said he would check something before leaving our room. About 15 minutes later he rings our room and asks us if our water is hot, which is wasn’t. He hangs up and that’s the last we heard from him so I was forced to shower in cold water. Not what you expect when you’re paying over 2million IDR per night. We confronted staff about the matter the following morning and they said they would have someone fix it. Which they did not! We had 5 minutes of hot water again before going cold. My guess is they probably only have a very small hot water service. So if you’re travelling with a partner you can expect that only one of you will get a hot shower at night. Our room has a wonderful view over the valley which you can enjoy from the comfort of your “VERY squeaky” bed. It feels very private, but don’t be fooled. We had staff members walking along the outside of our balcony on a thin strip of concrete to access one of their storage/pump rooms. This left us feeling awkward and not even being able to get dressed in our own room without covering up because at any given point we could have a staff member walk right in front of our room. Breakfast is a let down also. For 150,000IDR you get the basic fruit, fruit juice, coffee and bacon and eggs. Toast is cold, bacon cold and pretty small portions. You could get all this for 50,000IDR anywhere else in Bali. The rest of the menu is very over priced. Mie and Nasi Goreng (very cheap meals in Bali) both 120,000IDR +16% tax and service. If you want to escape these prices you must go into ubud centre where there is plenty of options. But to do this you will need to hire a scooter (100,000IDR) from the hotel or use their car service which is 80,000IDR each way. We opted for the car which was easy and our driver took us into ubud. Although the 80,000 fee staff told us it would cost, then turned into 100,000 when the driver dropped us off. - Our hand basin took ages to drain which looks gross after brushing teeth ect. - Drains also have a foul smell occasionally. - Our door doesn’t align properly so we have a 1cm gap which allows insects to come into the room easily and makes it difficult to lock/unlock - They don’t replace towels, they just left our dirty towels on the ground and we re-used them. - We had a weak wifi signal on our balcony but it was non-existent in the room. The list goes on! Overall the hotel is in a nice place and has a decent view. The staff were very friendly but at times not that helpful. This was my first time spending a lot of money on a hotel to get that luxury escape we always want. This is not the place for it, and I write this review so others are not left thoroughly disappointed the way I am. You will find much better value for money elsewhere in ubud.

I’m reviewing considering the high price I paid: 1) Staff is very nice, but speaks poor English, and it is quite disorganized 2) Maintenance is limited. The pool is very dirty. The chairs around the pool are rotten. The staircase to get in the room is ugly (see photos). Any pillow around hasn’t been washed in a while. No toilet paper in the room. 3) Food is below average. At breakfast there’s no buffet. You can pick 3 menus, where even getting yoghurt is a challenge and not part of the options. Dinner has limited choice, very slow execution, and average quality. 4) Location is nice in the jungle, but it’s a 15’ drive to the village on steep roads. You need 10$ for a cab per ride (a lot!) or you have rent a scooter, but I’d not do that if you are not experienced in driving - this is not Greece. We are moving on to a much cheaper solution where I get same service in a closer location. I’d pay here max 130USD.

We had such a wonderful journey, Ari came to pick us up from the airport, sooooo friendly and nice, then we spent a Beutiful time in the villa. Kutut’s sister came to prepare us a delicious breakfast in front of us, amazing service and lovely people, then She took us to visit the Pandora Hotel and we ware Amazed because of the rooms and suites! It is a must to go there and stay!! The villa and the hotel have huge spaces to enjoy your peaceful time in Bali. We are so grateful and thank you very much for such a wonderful experience. Ari is a perfect company if you are planning to travel around and visit places. Romel O.

We stayed two nights here in the Presidential Suite. The room was fantastic, everything we hoped we would get. The view from the room just beautiful- we felt pretty fancy! That’s pretty much where things stopped. It’s a new resort and quite small so we understand they are still finding things that work. However the restaurant menu was not very appealing to us, no western dishes or even nasi goreng. The staff were lovely but the manager over bearing at times. I went to walk around and he instantly zeroed in on me. The unappealing menu coupled with IDR80,000 each way for transport to get to Ubud centre (which is only 5 minutes away) meant food options were limited without costing a fortune. I think this resort has potential, it’s super relaxing and honestly had us in awe with the view, but too many other things let it down. A few tweaks on the menu would have us eating at the resort with no issues.

We had the choice of cheaper accommodation in central Ubud, or paying more for a resort with a view and a pool, for that reason we chose The Pandora. We were disappointed on arrival to find that the pool was "Under Treatment”, and we were unable to swim in it or the duration of our stay. There was no attempt by management to compensate us for this despite our complaints. Very disappointing as we paid extra for a resort with a pool and had to leave the resort when we wanted to cool down with a swim. The second frustration relates to the uncomfortable presence of the manager during our meals. He would approach and make small talk with us while we were eating, and then would stand there, two feet away from us and hover around while we ate. This was very rude and made us very uncomfortable! It was also infuriating for management to address my husband and not me, this doesn’t fly with Australian women! The other staff were exceptional. The breakfast menu was small and the menu items poor.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel itself is hidden out behind all the rice fields and off the main road. It’s about 1.5hr drive from Bali airport. We stayed in the garden suite and it was fantastic! The room was cool, bed was huge and had a mosquito net although we didn’t feel we needed to use it. The bathroom was outdoors and splendid. Sadly the pool was under treatment so we couldn’t use it when we were there but we had enough to do in Ubud itself. If you want dropping off in the centre it’s about 80,000Rp one way. The hotel uses a private company and you can whatsapp them anytime when you want picking up/dropping off. The staff itself were all fantastic. Dode (sorry if I spelt your name wrong) was especially helpful on helping us arrange our early transfer to catch the ferry to Gili Islands. As we were checking out really early he also arranged the kitchen staff to prepare us a breakfast box. Very nice touch. Wish we could have stayed for another mornings breakfast as it was presented amazingly and tasted delicious. We had the breakfast bowls. Very filling. All in all, fantastic little hidden gem outside of Ubud. Well worth the stay for peace and quiet away from the hustle of the centre. Our only issue we had was we tried to organise an airport pickup and sent them several emails but with no replies. So we had to get our own taxi when we arrived of which the taxi driver got lost. Would have been great if the hotel responded to emails through booking.com. That is our only feedback.

We stayed at the Pandora Hotel in a valley view suite. Beautiful views of the jungle and peaceful sound of the river. The garden area is beautiful and the infinity pool was perfect. The room is spacious and clean. Lot of bugs here and there.. Our room did not include breakfast so we ordered from the menu.. Result: AVOID BREAKFAST in this hotel. Food did not taste good at all. Dishes were small and not accurate to the menu. VERY OVERPRICED ! A shame.. 4 stars for that.
