Bali is well known for its original places to stay with gorgeous infinity pools, stunning views and beautiful rooms. However, there’s one that definitely stands out here on all those points and more. Meet Sandat Glamping Tents. A luxury tent resort in Ubud with very unique rooms and great service. They are proudly the first glamping resort in Indonesia, and I can’t blame them. I would be pretty damn proud as well. This place is magnificent. It’s a small scale accommodation just a little bit out of Ubud in between the lush green rice fields.
Peace and serenity
While the streets of Ubud are filled with cars, people, restaurants and shops, Sandat Glamping Tents is only ten minutes away from the main street and the complete opposite. It’s serene, quiet and you feel like you are in the middle of nature. Which technically you are. So you’re sleeping in a tent, you either love it or you hate it. However, there are places in the world where both haters and lovers would have no problem staying in a tent for a few nights. And Sandat Glamping Tents is definitely one of those places. This is camping to the next level.
Our tent is surrounded by jungly greens and while washing my hands in the bathroom I’m overlooking the rice fields. At night you’ll hear the crickets and the frogs singing their song, while the wind blows through the open windows of the tent. It’s almost as if you’re sleeping in the open air. Showering can be done inside or outside, but both with pretty views on the rice fields and forest. Each tent has a private pool, which is so private you can basically skinny dip. I love how this place integrates nature in every single way.
One with nature
The tents at Sandat Glamping have all the luxury you can ask for. But the biggest luxury might be the wind blowing through, the sounds of the animals at night and waking up with the rising of the sun. One morning we had this whole sunrise plan of visiting the rice fields, when it all fell apart because of heavy rains. Bummer you would think. But the sound of the rain on the tent was so peaceful, I fell asleep seconds after my 6.15 am alarm and had the best sleep-in in months.
No time to get bored
Even though there is loads to do around Ubud, I could’ve easily entertained myself around Sandat Glamping. There are yoga lessons on request (with a killer view), there are spa treatments, there’s a big collection of books and there’s your very own jungle pool. When hungry the restaurant cooks up the most delicious dishes all with as much local produce as possible. So if you’re looking for a place to recharge your battery, then this is definitely it.

Thumbs up for Sandat Glamping Tents for creating such an oasis. A place where you’ll say “wow” every time you wake up, and every time you go to bed under a sky full of stars. Where nature is such a big part of every day life and where sustainability is very important. Go check it out for yourself, but be careful… you might stay a little longer than you planned.
