Sandat Glamping Tents Bali
Ubud, the most sought after place to visit in Bali. With its luscious green rice terraces, chilled out vibe and delicious healthy food, Ubud is one of our favourite places in Bali. For our fourth time in Ubud, we decided to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the main centre. Yet, still close enough so we could visit whenever we wanted. Sandat Glamping Tents are only 3km from Ubud town. Making it the perfect place to relax, unwind and immerse yourself in nature.
Sandat Glamping Tents is a small boutique hotel set in a peaceful location. The tropical surroundings and quirky decor are what make this resort utterly unique. It promises a luxury escape for those wanting a unique experience. But how can glamping be that luxurious I hear you ask? Well, you’d never find out without a stay at Sandat Glamping. This resort brings glamping to a whole new level! Surrounded by nature, sounds of the birds and insects all whilst still having the luxury comforts of a 5-star hotel. If that sounds appealing, then this is your perfect place to stay!
Offering 5 luxury tents and 3 traditional lumbungs, the resort has something to suit everyone’s tastes. Each private tent comes with its own secluded pool whereas staying in one of the magnificent lumbungs allows you to share a larger pool with the two other lumbung residences. Each structure is uniquely decorated and every detail is carefully thought out to make your stay at Glamping Sandat one you’ll never forget.
From the moment we arrived, we knew we were in for a great couple of days. Our check-in was smooth as we were greeted by the welcoming staff and given a complimentary drink within minutes. After a quick exchange of details, our bags were taken and we were walked down to our own tropical paradise.
As we walked through the jungle-like entrance, we instantly felt peaceful and at home in our own little oasis. The moment we clapped eyes on our ‘Suite Penjor Tent’ we couldn’t believe it was a tent, more like our own villa!
During a brief introduction to the tent, we learned that to keep in tune with the vibe and allow you to detach, that no telephones were available. Instead, the staff would ring a bell at the entrance to your private garden compound. If you need assistance you can play your own instrument. The little details like this made our glamping experience unforgettable.
Suite Penjor Tent
The first thing we noticed from our tent was the 360-degree views of the forest, jungle and rice terraces. The main attraction was the round canopy double bed, decorated beautifully with it a white net so that when we slept it was like being in a tent within a tent! A cozy and surreal experience. Although air con is available in the Suite Tent, the temperature was perfect day and night without the need to use it.
The rest of the tent was uniquely decorated in a chocolate brown, safari-style. With two velvet armchairs, beautiful flowers and crystal accessories, Suite Penjor Tent lives up to it’s 5 billion star tag!
The indoor private bathroom also felt super luxurious with a crystal chandelier hanging from the centre. The spacious bathroom included a hot and cold shower, sink, toilet, numerous towels, free toiletries, and beautiful Venetian mirrors. Sometimes we forgot we were in a tent at all.
Complimentary glass bottled water
Speaker for music
2 extra beds if required
Tea and coffee making facilities
As we stepped out of our tent, our private pool and sun lounges were waiting. Nestled in our own secret garden, we spent the whole two days swimming, relaxing and immersing ourselves in nature. We truly felt like the only people there.
Breakfast is from 7:30-11:30 each morning in the large bamboo restaurant. From outside, the bamboo structure is a beautiful masterpiece and even more amazing inside. The small furnishings from the table settings, wall decorations, and intricate details are truly stunning. The stylish main wall of the restaurant holds 101 exquisite white mirrors, only adding to the luxuriousness of the place.
Each morning we enjoyed the buffet breakfast offering fresh bread, pastries and homemade jams. We could also choose to have the freshly prepared eggs or Indonesian style breakfast of nasi goreng or mie goreng. The Italian influence from the owner is greatly shown in the restaurant from the fresh Italian espresso in the mornings to the beautiful table settings and decorations.
When you’re not eating in the restaurant, there’s plenty of places to relax, unwind and read a book or play a game of chess. All whilst listening to the gentle hum of traditional Indonesian music.
After two fantastic nights sleep, we never awoke in time for morning yoga and meditation, which is a real shame! The rice terrace views from the bamboo made yoga area is stunning and I’m sure it would be a wonderful experience. But hey. It gives us an excuse to revisit!
As you can probably tell, we spent a lot of our time at Glamping Sandat enjoying the pool, food, cocktails and overall relaxing atmosphere. Although this means we didn’t really make it into Ubud much to explore this time around. If you are wanting to explore more of Ubud, the resort offers a complimentary shuttle bus each day into the centre. Massages and excursions are also available to book within the hotel.
Our time at Glamping Sandat really was a fantastic experience. For anyone wanting a relaxing, unique experience then we fully recommend this resort for a luxury escape in Ubud.
