i really don't want to rate Pondok Sawah Asri highly as everyone will want to stay here but i have to give highest rating possible. Wayan and Asri are two of the most wonderful people you could ever meet. we arrived in pouring rain and they picked us up from the top of the gang on scooters with raincoats to take us down to the villa. what a fun ride !!! the villa is simply stunning and beautifully maintained, so peaceful and pure bliss. Asri has made us an amazing breakfast every morning in the villa and has not been able to do enough to help us. nothing is too much trouble and everything that could be is taken care of to ensure the most amazing stay possible. phone provided to contact for anything extra you need and Wayan and Asri are available at all times and as unobtrusive as you want or as involved as you want. easy walk into Ubud center or they will take you in on scooter but i lived the walk. cannot recommend highly enough will definitely be back asap!!! Love love love ❤❤

“Very nice”
Reviewed 26 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What a great place with wonderful owners! Very calm location in the rice paddies, nice warungs nearby. And Ubud centre not to far off by car or scooter (or about 20min walk).
Wayan and Asri are both great, friendly and caring people.

“IDYLLIC RETREAT”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed 3 nights & wish we'd booked longer! Very private, quiet retreat & perfect for us after 2 months traveling! The paved path thru the rice paddies to the main road is not an issue-the owners will take you by scooter (they are always available & most accommodating!) or you can rent one very cheaply & drive yourself. We actually preferred not to leave! A great Balinese restaurant a few steps away with a varied & delicious menu. Delivery to the villa with a call in menu for another nearby eatery BUT best of all-ask Asri to cook her specialties for you-YUMMY! Very clean, comfortable & relaxing place. Owners did a fine job with landscaping! Treat yourself!

“Love villa with some practical issues”
Reviewed 24 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a lovely stay in this villa for 12 nights. The garden and pool are absolutely gorgeous and the room and bathroom are very nice as well. We didn't really use the kitchen but we liked the large fridge with small freezer and the dispenser with free drinking water. The hosts were really nice and helpful. Overall we were really satisfied with our stay here, although there are some things you should consider before booking.

*The booking includes free use of a scooter, which is awesome to get around Ubud and to make really cheap trips all over the island. However, you also really need this scooter to get from the villa to the center of Ubud. There is no road to the villa, only a narrow path through the rice fields and other houses, which is about 1km long and dangerous because in quite bad condition. From there, it's another few kilometers to the center of Ubud. If you don't feel comfortable driving a scooter in Bali, you're basically screwed. I really wanted to take some yoga classes during our stay, but I always had to ask my husband to take me there, which was really unconvient.

*When we arrived, we had a really nice and warm welcome by Wayan and his wife. They assured us they wanted to make our stay as comfortable as possible and would respect our privacy. In reality it turned out to be really difficult to make clear arrangements with them. They were often really vague about when they would come by to do the cleaning, and they came over unannounced twice, once even when I specifically agreed with him he would only return in the afternoon when we were gone. They also come in every morning to make you breakfast, which is included and really nice (pancakes, eggs, fresh juice...) but also quite awkward. We found it difficult to enjoy our breakfast while they were cleaning the kitchen and preparing the offerings. The offerings were in fact really the biggest issue for us. Balinese people are really religious and have a lot of rituals to honour their gods. We respect everyone's religion, but we really didn't understand why there had to be offerings in our villa every day. They usually did this after breakfast, which meant they would be in the kitchen and garden for an hour on average preparing and praying. This made us really uncomfortable and kind of ruined our mornings as we felt obliged to stay in our room or leave. They said it was okay to use the pool during the rituals but it just felt really awkward. We had specifically chosen this villa for privacy and we didn't feel like we got what we paid for.

*Airport pick up is included (or in our case: pick up from our first hotel in Kuta) which is of course really nice and also kind of necessary as it would be impossible to find the villa yourself. The guy who picks you up is Made, a friend of Wayan, a nice guy you can also hire as a driver for a day to do some sightseeing (f.e. to the Git-Git waterfalls, which is a bit far to do by scooter). A day prior to our departure, Wayan asked when Made had to pick us up to drive us to the airport. When we had to leave and pay for the villa, it turned out airport drop-off wasn't included in the price. I thought the way Wayan brought this up wasn't really fair. If we had known, we would have called a cab, which would have been much cheaper in my opinion. We also didn't like the fact that we had to pay a 3% charge to pay by creditcard. For our stay of 12 nights this cost us around 25 euros extra. If we had known this in advance, we would have brought more dollars with us to exchange as withdrawing money from an ATM also costs 5 euros per transaction and you can only withdraw a limited amount at a time.

In conclusion: we liked our stay here, but I don't think we will come back if we ever travel to Ubud again.
