Love love loved our time here- the owner (who is also a chef/ runs a cooking school) is so hospitable, as well as amazing chef- all the food was mouthwatering and we felt like part of the family. The location: just out of the city, you can really feel the difference, it’s so peaceful. Perfect place to relax by the pool for a day looking out into the trees and rice paddies. The room- beautiful! Modern, quiet, good aircon and ceiling fan, the shower was perfect, bed was perfect. We will be back 100%

The best food in 5 months of travelling!!
I can’t say enough good about my stay at Pesantian Villa Pejeng! Everything was perfect. The room was cleaned every day, coffee and tea supplies stocked up and was extremely comfortable. We had a terrace with our own sun loungers. It’s beautifully peaceful and quiet with a small river nearby to add to the tranquility. The pool was refreshing and very clean. The staff are brilliant. The restaurant up stairs (part of the villa complex) was beautifully decorated and with a great view, not to mention the food! Santika the owner is also the chef and has 27 years experience (some of which as head chef) and this really shows in his food! Herbs and spices brought together perfectly for unbelievable flavours. The free breakfast also is to the same standard! He also does a cooking class which is a bonus! Beside all of this, Santika as the owner runs his place like nothing else we have experienced. Nothing is too much to ask, tips, help, extra nights etc. He Taxi’d us to Ubud town and to Amed when checking out. This review may seem too good to be true but it’s nothing less than this place deserves. If you are looking for real value for money and not be directly in Ubud town but in the beauty of the rice fields then book now! Also, the taxi into Ubud town is cheap and takes 10 minutes!

What a great and fun experience! Chef Santika is very knowledgeable and entertaining . This is a very hands on class where the participants are busy cooking their own lunch. The dishes are all delicious. For me the soup and the sambal matah were the standouts. I need a good batch of that Bumbu in my fridge at home each day! Highly recommend this. My best cooking class in Bali . Also can’t wait to have a dinner at Pesantian- the menu is incredible!
