During my visits to Bali, although I spend most of my time in the beautiful Amed area, I always like to spend some time in Ubud too. It has such a special charm and such an eclectic mix of people, good shops, spas, art galleries and restaurants.
My latest "find" in Ubud, is Michi Retreat. You dont have to be 'on retreat' to enjoy staying there!!
For me, my daughter and my friend, it was a truly wonderful experience. I have written the review below!
I guess you only need to read the titles to the earlier reviews of Michi to realise that this place is something special, something different, something unique. A place that touches the heart, the soul and the senses.
Paradise retreat. Heavenly Michi. Best Kept Secret. Delightful Global Wonderland. Truly Unique Find. Artistic and Spiritual Paradise. Wonderful experience, Views, creativity and gracious host and so on!!
I have to thank the T/A reviews [and the gods] which led me to find this magical place!!
I have stayed in quite a number of different hotels in Ubud over the years I have been travelling to Bali.
Michi will be my Ubud home on my next trips for sure.
We stayed in the Mekong Suite. It was spacious and beautiful with glorious views..
We took a tour of the property.. it took approx 2 hours to take it all in. The attention to detail is astounding. Im still wondering which room to choose next time!!
Read the previous reviews.
There is not much I can add that has not been said.
Michi is something very different. It is not for everybody.
But if you want to experience a unique and magical place in Ubud, I cant reccomend it highly enough
Someone mentioned the "Gracious Host". He is truly gracious and delightful.
