Puri Saraswati Bungalows is truly located in the center of Ubud, two minutes walk from the Ubud Market, the Ubud Royal Palace and Puri Lukisan Art Museum… but still only five minutes from beautifully terraced rice fields. Ubud is recognized as the artistic and cultural center of Bali and appropriately, the goddess Saraswati represents the arts, knowledge and wisdom.
The Bungalows are adjacent to the famous Lotus Pond and acclaimed Café Lotus Restaurant. On selected evenings each week, award winning gamelan and dance groups perform on the Lotus Pond stage. During the day, the stage is used to teach young boys and girls traditional Balinese dance. In the surrounding pavilions, young musicians practice gamelan. The area is alive with traditional artistic activity.
The Bungalows are in the very heart of Ubud’s activities, where dance, gamelan and shadow puppetry performances occur nightly, excellent restaurants are steps away, art and handicraft galleries proudly exhibit their work, and the magic and mystery of temple processions pass at your doorstep.
Monkey Forest is a brief stroll down the road and shops displaying everything from handicrafts to fine jewelry to high fashion are easily accessible.
