Very beautiful and quiet, good value for money.
Staff were excellent; location stunning; room exceptional. Good location to visit the master carvers and silver and gold smiths.
At first we thought it too far out of Ubud but after visiting Ubud for the first time in ten years, we were glad to be away from it. It was an appalling experience and we never want to go back; they have ruined what was so charming and wonderful about it.
The hotel is unbelievably beautiful. Lots of moss covered stone and jungle overgrowth. Very romantic! And our room was top notch. Amazing views and tons of space. Really amazing.
The wifi was only in the lobby and it was spotty. Also, I loved the idea of an outdoor shower and bathtub and it was certainly inviting, I found I didn't really want to use it at night. Not really the hotels fault, just not something I'm used to.
The Resort is 'enchanting' - it has elements of an old castle feel to it. The views are stunning from the infinity pool and the balcony on top of the reception area. The villas are faily private - some more than others.
Unfortunately, this hotel is very run down and poorly maintained. We arrived at our private villa only to find that they recycled the bed sheets of the previous guests - yellow stains and hairs welcomed us. Villa had cobwebs around and needed dusting. Not enough bath towels provided for comfort and poor selection of toiletries. The bath tub needed a good scrubbing (We refused to use it) as did the toilet bowl. The rooms and the bedding also smelt damp so if you have a sensitive nose this is not the place for you. The outdoor shower in our pool villa had bugs all around it as did the outdoor bed – we could not use it because there were insect droppings on the bed! Service of the hotel staff was poor – most had a poor command of English. When serving tea / dinner staff was not very attentive. Saw them re-using dirty table cloths. Poor selection of breakfast for the price we paid. All in all hotel staff need to learn how to clean properly and provide some level of service.
My Husband and I stayed 5 nights at the Payogan and had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The food was lovely and we had room service on several occasions. Over all the room was comfortable and our private pool was amazing we would reccommend the Payogan to friends and family.
The only problem we had was with a faulty air conditioner that was leaking even after we contacted the maintenance people, the room had a slightly mouldy smell which we burnt incence to cover. When we arrived at our room the path was covered with rotting fruit which was left there for a full day before it was cleaned up, the smell wasn't very pleasant but was cleaned up by the next morning.
The Bedroom and Bathroom was large and spacious, the bed was four poster with netting around which was romantic and protective from mosquitos! The Bath tub, shower and toilet were located outdoors. The Bath tub overlooked the valley of trees, when there were no moths, bugs etc around it was idyllic and romantic. The hotel prepared our room with petals on the bed and bath tub and infinity pool with candles and petals which was a lovely touch
There were a lot of bugs and moths outside at night time. The food served at dinner wasn't the best meal we had in Bali but the service was great!
Excellent hotel very good for honeymoon Do not mess it
Private,silence,nature,huge villa.Spend time here with your family or lover is wonderful.Every villa has a swimming pool,bathing outside.This resort is in the mountain,so not feel hot;also you can enjoy the sunshine.All staffs were friendly.Strongly recommendation.
Very well kept grounds and excellent staff. The villas are on the side of a river gorge overlooking the valley and rice fields. It is cut into the surrounding forest.
The place needs some key upgrades to the facility which is aging in some ways. The shower/bath fixtures need replacing. There was painting that needed to be finished in the room. The television reception was very poor and there is no internet access in the rooms, you have to walk up the hill to the lobby for internet. I would recommend tyhe place to others if the price is right but the location and above mentioned issues bring the value into question.
The hotel was very beautiful and atmospheric - wonderful gardens and pools. It was amazing to shower in the open air and feel meters away from dense rainforest. The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. We loved it!
I like the peace and quietness of hotel.
I didn't like the slopes which is tired to climb. Also. at night, it is too quiet and dark.
Very quite and peaceful location. Staff were very friendly.
Deck chairs were very uncomfortable
An absolutely beautiful resort set in stunning surroundings. The service and rooms were good, although the finishing touches were absent, like no chairs or lounges next to the private pools, limited chairs next to the main pool, limited towel supply and very expensive drinks. It was also quite a distance from Ubud town but this was ok because they provided a free shuttle. Very luxurious!
Quiet, peaceful, serene environment. Transport to move from villa to other areas of hotel promptly available and there was frequent shuttle to and from Ubud centre.
Certain of the facilities were out of order eg door cannot lock, toilet flush spoilt. Difficult to move around as very steep unless transport is available
Iguess because of hotel availability they upgraded us to the room with own private pool. Room was huge, came with own pool looking over rice terrance in distance. Breakfast buffet selection was good enough.
everything there is are pretty aged.
