Tegal Sari was the very first stop of our holiday trip to Indonesia last month. Arrived at I Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali filled with excitement and the driver from Tegal Sari was already there holding a sign waiting for us. We originally booked for a Super Deluxe Room No. 11 but upon arriving there and saw that the bathroom door has gaps to the outside, we decided to change to other room. When they said there was one Nyalian Suite available for the period we were staying, we couldn’t be happier to make the move! It costed double the price of Super Deluxe rooms but boy, is definitely worth every extra cents!
I booked Tegal Sari about 6 months before the trip and this time I just emailed them. It took 2-3 days for them to reply to my emails but they were very helpful and honest with questions (whether there were going to be any nearby constructions scheduled) and even sent pictures of the room we were asking for. The super friendly staffs at Tegal Sari are real jewels beside the cleanliness of the rooms and their gorgeous rice paddy views. This was the second time I stayed at Tegal Sari and there were still many familiar faces I remembered since my first visit last year, this ought to be a good place to work at!
Now, the Nyalian Suite is huge, seriously it is so spacious. If you bring along a child, I am sure he/she will happily run around. The decor is modern minimalist, so a little different to their older rooms where decor was more traditional wooden type. And there was also a flat screen TV with a nice couch that hubby was very happy for. The Nyalian Suites and Rooms are located in the new building, in which on its rooftop was the new swimming pool and a yoga studio (although, we were told that they have not had a fixed yoga schedule in place at that time). Also, in that rooftop you would be able to view night lights of hotels in Nusa Dua area and top of Mount Agung if the sky is clear.
I have recorded a video of the place and wish to share it with you all, hopefully it can be of use. By the way, we were also shown the Nyalian Room (which I forgot to record – duhh), the difference being the bed set up and it’s floor location. Nyalian Rooms has double beds as opposed to Nyalian Suites with king sized bed plus there is a day bed and also a massive bath tub. Nyalian Rooms are located on ground and first floors whereas Nyalian Suites are on higher level which gives you better paddy field view.
The balcony is also very spacious and I had really enjoyed sitting there with a cup of tea in the morning looking for sunrise, rice paddy below (although when I was there, they barely just started planting the seeds), just listen to the birds and enjoyed the moment. We did have a great relaxing stay at Tegal Sari, just a wonderful start to our holiday.
We also rented a motor bike through Tegal Sari when we arrived and they had it ready for us right away with two helmets and rain cover (which we didn’t have to use at all). As mentioned before, everyone here is just so helpful, we asked for directions to get to Gianyar Night Market and they printed us a map, carefully explained which ways to go and which turns to take, etc.
These videos below will take you to the walk-around Nyalian Suite No. 43 and the rooftop area.
