My husband and I are planning a trip to Bali and are in the process of narrowing down lodging choices.
For Ubud, we have found 5 places that sound really great and are trying to put them in order - 1st choice, 2nd choice, etc - before we start making reservation inquiries.
We are mid-30s, travelling just the 2 of us, interested in culture, nature, photography, moderate hiking and biking, relaxation, local food, time at a spa, a little low key nightlife (maybe a low key bar with live music). In a place to stay, we are interested in a low key environment with a pool, beautiful surroundings, nice people, comfortable bed and furnishings, lots of local flavor, spa services onsite definitely a plus but not a requirement - we don't need anything particularly fancy, just comfortable and interesting.
With that in mind, we have found:
Alam Shanti and sister properties
Any experiences with these places? Comments? Suggestions?
