"Went above and beyond"
We absolutely loved our stay with Fivelements. The staff were friendly and went above and beyond, the location was peaceful, the rooms were spacious, but the delicious food was the highlight for us and undoubtedly the best food we’ve tasted in Bali. Thanks Fivelements!
"My new home"
My heart fills with joy reminiscing of my 9 days with you. I can’t wait to visit again, even if it is just for dinner. The service was excellent, the food was great and the place is magical, but most importantly, the staff is amazing. I will carry your teachings, good vibes and experiences with me.
"Very relaxing and detoxing"
Everything was excellent. John was very warm and welcoming and all the staff was very kind and polite. Location was very relaxing and detoxing. Best food I've ever had. Rooms are very spacious and relaxing in the bathtub facing the river was a dream. Awesome vegetarian food. Thank you to everyone.

"Committed to providing the best service"
I would definitely recommend Fivelements to everyone, they approach each area of their business with the commitment to provide the best service and their attention to detail is second to none. From the moment you set foot into their grounds to the moment you leave you are made to feel like an honoured guest.
Unique experience with the wooden villa and the bathtub by the river. We quite enjoyed taking bath by the river. The staff are warm and helpful. The restaurant serves all vegan food. The location is a little hard to find, but that is what makes it quiet and good for getaway from daily urban life.
"Very beautiful hotel"
Very beautiful hotel located within Ubud area. Although the hotel is quite hard to access with only 1 car width road. The hotel is very private. They also have 6 private spa rooms that provide very good spa service.

"Could live here happily ever after"
Everything from the food to the accommodation to the spa treatments. The service was great, and I loved the culinary specials that chef Gusti prepared for me. It was very likely the best vegan food I've ever tasted. You could live here happily ever after and be your healthiest self, feeling great and refreshed in your body, as well as your mind and soul.
