Reminiscent of a Balinese village

Located just five minutes from central Ubud, the Pita Maha Resort and Spa is tucked away on a hillside overlooking the Tjampuhan Ridge. Spectacular views surrounded by tropical greenery can be enjoyed from the main infinity pool and we highly recommend a visit to the spa for an ancient Balinese treatment. With only 24 villas this boutique hotel reflects the style of a traditional Balinese village and with cooking and dance classes available daily you will feel like a local in no time. 

  • Boutique all-villa hotel
  • Five minutes from central Ubud
  • Tranquil and intimate feel
  • Balinese dance and art classes

Gorgeous hotel

This is one of the nicest hotels we’ve stayed in. The grounds were so beautiful to walk around, the room huge and clean, the main pool was amazing. All staff were friendly and helpful. We ate here for breakfast and one dinner, it was good quality and reasonable priced. It was very quiet and we found the stay to be very peaceful. Only given 4 stars in view if an issue regarding our room. When we arrived in the evening they said our room wasn’t ready so they upgraded us into a large family villa for the night, we were fine with this but it was slightly inconvenient knowing we had to move the next day. The next day after returning from a busy day in town we were told our room still wasn’t ready, this was around 2pm. This was annoying as we’d arrived the night before and wanted to access our room and freshen up. The member of staff wasn’t that apologetic and didn’t offer us any drinks whilst we were waiting for our room or anything for the inconvenience

Great Resort; Great People


Excellent Garden Villa. Yes, some wear and tear but still well maintained. Very clean; Housekeeping came in twice a day so plenty of water. We loved our villa. Outside was a large veranda where we had tea every morning and afternoon. It also had a bed to lie on. There is a lot of floor space within the villa with a huge bed surrounded by mosquito nets. At the front of the villa is a lounge area with a couple of tables and chairs, plus a set of large sliding doors leading to the garden. Separate area for washing and clothes storage leading to the WC. The shower / bath area is, interestingly, outside. But it works considering the weather in Bali. There was a huge safe with a shelf; more than enough room for valuables inc laptops / cameras. The villa is set back surrounded by walls, so plenty of privacy. And very quiet. The Resort is fairly small, maybe 20 – 25 villas. The resort is set on the side of a valley so there are a fair amount of steps, so probably not so good for someone with walking difficulties. There is a good size infinity pool with views of the forest / valley. There are two dining areas though we tended to use just the one. Breakfast is included in the room price and I thought the choice was diverse enough between Indonesian and western dishes. Additionally, there are some dishes that are subject to additional cost e.g. pancakes. The Resort provides a dinner menu at reasonable prices. However what bumps up the price is the tax and service charge (and drinks). So you can get a reasonable meal from between £5 - £7 plus charges. I’ve never been a fan of service charges and don’t tip accordingly. However, I found that service charges were added at all the restaurants / bars we visited in Bali as standard. So was Government tax of 10%. Excursions can be arranged through reception e.g. if you want a car to take you on a tour then a car and driver can be provided tor 200k Rp per hour. We did this to visit Tirta Empul and split the cost amongst us. You can get cheaper outside but this is a convenient service. Additionally, there is a free shuttle into the centre of Ubud and back. We found the service very good. Can’t speak highly enough of the staff. Very pleasant people; something I found in general during all our encounters in Ubud. Language can be an issue but remember this isn’t the resort area of Bali; although it gets a lot of tourists, it isn’t touristy if that makes sense. I would certainly recommend this hotel and hope one day to go back.
