Sayan is one of my most favorite places in Bali because of the incredible view - rice paddies, mountains, coconut trees. My uncle, who came from France, is an avid photographer and so we had to take him here. Sayan is about 30 minutes drive from Ubud and besides huge expensive hotels like the Four Seasons and Amandari, you have beautifully designed small cozy hotels like Sayan Terrace and Taman Bebek. My parents and late grandparents both stayed in these places and absolutely loved it. Taman Bebek was designed by Made Wijaya, an australian born landscape artist and writer who has lived in Bali for more than 30 years.
