“When I follow my heart, I wake up in Bali” -Unknown

Ubud is one of those places where you can truly fill your cup to overflowing.  Many novels and films attest to this and and have been set here, creative responses to the seductive nature of this most cultured of all Balinese towns.

This is a place where traditional Balinese culture imbues every waking moment, where colourful offerings adorn the streets and where the hypnotic strains of gamelan are an ever-present soundtrack to everyday life. It’s also somewhere that is relentlessly on trend – a showcase of sustainable design, mindfulness, culinary inventiveness and the very best that global tourism has to offer.

Come here for relaxation, for rejuvenation and to have what may well be the most magical holiday of your life.

“Bali is more than a place…it’s a mood, it’s magical. It’s a tropical state of mind.”-Unknown

Look a bit deeper and you will find museums and galleries, walks through the rice paddies, world class spa treatments for a  fraction of the price, yoga classes on every corner and smiles everywhere.

The Space - Sri Ratih

Nestled on the lush outskirts of Ubud, Sri Ratih Cottages is a lovely hotel known for its  Balinese design, tranquil atmosphere, and the warm hospitality of the staff. The spaciously set out rooms surround the inviting turquoise waters of the swimming pool which sits at the centre of well-kept tropical gardens. Guests can dine in the Sri Ratih Café and take advantage of a soothing spa treatment for optimum relaxation at the Sri Ratih Spa. 

Location 

Sri Ratih Cottages enjoys a strategic location in the lush and peaceful hinterlands of Ubud, Bali’s artistic and spiritual centre. It is approximately 1.5 hour’s drive from NgurahRai international airport. The bustling centre of town is a 15 minute walk from the hotel. From Sri Ratih Cottages, guests can easily reach the restaurants, galleries, shops and city attractions such as Pura Dalem Temple and Ubud Palace. The provincial art village of Penestanan is just a 10 minute walk away as are stunning views of rice fields and the breathtaking Campuhan Hill ridge walk. Taxis can be arranged at the front office and are a very affordable and easy option for getting around. 

*Please note that being in a smaller village has its advantages but wildlife still abounds. Noisy geckos and roosters along with early morning motorbikes may disturb your sleep. I suggest brining earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

Room Facilities  

Sri Ratih comprises of 30 air-conditioned, clean comfortable 3 star rooms. All rooms include a terrace where guests can relax and take in the view of the gardens or swimming pool. Rooms are tastefully decorated with of Balinese style furnishings, accented with unique pieces of traditional art. Bathrooms are spacious and well-presented with a modern tropical feel. Guests can enjoy a range of programs on their satellite television with an in-house movie channel. Rooms also include expansive wardrobes, a telephone, mini bar, hair dryer (on request). Sri Ratih provides free Wi-Fi access in every room and throughout the hotel grounds. Laundry service is also available.

*Please note that Indonesia is not a western country, even though on the surface it may appear advanced, the infrastructure isn’t always there. This means that at times the power and internet drop out. The water pressure can be low and lights dim. The beds may be more firm than you are used to, this is across all of Asia and also why no top sheet! Only doonas!! Please keep this in mind when booking this trip and also carry this knowledge with you as you travel around Bali. 

Amenities 

Our swimming pool, set amidst the tropical garden of frangipanis and coconut palms provides the perfect place for our guests to unwind and cool off from the tropical heat. The on-site Sri Ratih Spa is also an ideal place for relaxation and offers guests a range of treatments including Balinese massage, manicures and pedicures provided by highly-qualified professional spa therapists.

Located on the grounds of Sri Ratih is our beautifully-designed restaurant which serves a delectable selection of Balinese and International cuisine from our a la carte menu. Sri Ratih Café opens for breakfast from 7.30am and remains open until 11pm. The restaurant also serves authentic Balinese sweets, such as laklak, pisangrai and godoh at the breakfast.
