This was definatly a great place to escape from all big touristic places on the Island. Surya Shanti is a wonderfull and peacefull place to stay. I've stayed in the wooden house, this was a great place in the middle of the rice paddies. Great outside bathroom with a big bath and great terrace with a lounge.
Gade is the most warm and really the best host in this area. He helps and advices you wherever he can and he his so kind.
I also can recommend a massage in the spa, very nice and in also in the middle of the rice paddies.

We've been two nights at Surya Shanty and Everything was PERFECT! (beautiful view, well decorated villas, welcoming staff, good restaurant...). One minor remark: maybe the breakfast could be slightly improved.
A very good value and a place to be at Sidemen.

Surya Shanti is definitely a special place to stay and very different from other options in Bali. (The taxi driver who drove us there from the airport, +- 2.5hr drive, said the ,last time he had been asked to take a tourist to the area was 10 years ago.) The hotel is beautfully built with stunning views out over the stepped rice paddy hills. The staff are also very friendly and you do feel like you are staying in a very special place.
We did 2 excellent activities at the hotel both of which I would recommend. The first was the cooking course which is very authentic. They have a special Balinese kitchen with a wood fired stove in the gardens which makes for an amazing location to have the lesson and is a special touch. The second was the guided rice paddy walk which went up to a temple at the top of a nearby hill where we had breakfast. For me this was the highlight. The staff member who took us was really knowledgeable about the plants in the area and we had beautiful views along most of the walk. It was a relatively hard walk though, so i wouldn't do it if you aren't reasonably fit.
Overall as you can probably tell from this review it was a great place to stay, but there were some negatives which I just want to point out so that nobody is disappointed. Firstly the cupboards are extremely full of mould and there are so many mothballs in them that you actually can't put your clothes in the cupboard or they smell like mould/ mothballs. Secondly Sidemen, being in the mountains, seems to get a lot more rain that places along the coast in Bali. Lastly we had a personal experience where we wanted to go on a day trip to Ubud and the hotel wanted us to pay about 2X - 3X what the trip should actually cost. This left a bit of a bad taste since it felt like they were trying to rip us off. If you are there and also want to do this trip to Ubud, then I would recommend not going through the hotel and instead walking up the hill to ask about a driver at the tourist "office" which is near Sidemen village. We got a driver called Ketut to take us for the day and he was great.

We've been now the third time in Bali, always travelling around and staying in small hotels our villas. Our four days in the Surya Shanti were fantastic, maybe our best stay in Bali ever. We really enjoyed everythink: Nice villas, large & comfordable and great interior, with breathtaking view to the valley. Three nice pools and a great garden. Extremely friendly and authentic staff. Thanks Gede, we will not forget the Yoga-Session in the temple - best wished to the house snake...
No unnecessary gadgets (TV, DVD Player). We enjoyed the cooking class and the 3h walk through rice fields to the temple.
The concept of the Hotel is really great. Everyone in the Hotel is really committed to show the "real" Bali.

This place was so good, I almost don't want to leave a review, lest I contribute to its discovery! Where to start?

Firstly, the staff really made an effort to make our honeymoon special and their attention to detail was wonderful. When we arrived we were greeted by the very friendly and professional young guy at reception (Gede possibly?), who escorted us up the hill to the restaurant where we were given a refreshing welcome drink and a complimentary foot bath and massage. We were then taken to our beautiful room, where a heart-shaped cake and certificate of congratulations from the management awaited us. When we were shown round the room we saw that the huge bath tub had been filled and petals had been scattered all over the water. The restaurant didn't open till later but they opened it especially for us because we hadn't eaten and the spring rolls I had were the freshest and finest I've ever had. Spot on.

In addition to the friendliness of the staff and attention to detail, the setting of this place is quite is extraordinary. The infinity pool looks out over an amphitheatre of paddy fields, where you can watch the locals working in the fields (you do feel a bit lazy, but it makes for some great photo opportunities)! The room was also lovely and the staff were all so helpful (especially Gede and Sugi?). A beautiful, peaceful hideaway. If you value friendliness, peace and quiet, nature, local life, and a bit of luxury, you couldn't do better than this place.

A perfect end to our honeymoon. Thank you Surya Shanti!
