Mid range accommodation in Ubud - 3 nights in April

We're looking for mid range accommodation in central Ubud for three nights in early April (first visit to Bali). We'd prefer something on the traditional side and a pool would be great. We're happy to be within a kilometre or so of the centre (as long as it doesn't involve a very hilly walk). Any suggestions/recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks!

1. Re: Mid range accommodation in Ubud - 3 nights in April

Tegal Sari should be your first consideration, consistently well reviewed and has a good reputation here with the forum regulars. It's about a kilometre from Ubud Market and Jl Raya Ubud, in the Pengoseken area. Lovely boutique hotel surrounded by rice fields. They give you a free lift into the centre if you don't fancy the walk. But if you do the walk up Jl Hanoman or Monkey Forest Road, there are lots of interesting shops, spas and cafes to take your interest. It's popular so book well in advance though. The downside is that the pool is quite small, more of a place to cool off rather than have a swim.

If pools are your priority and you're looking at mid-range, consider the Cendana Resort and Spa. It's in the heart of Ubud on Monkey Forest Road, about a 10 min walk from the market. But the hotel is set back, and in a rice field surrounding. It had 2 very good sized pools. I prefer the standard rooms to the superior rooms here, they have more of a Balinese flavour.

Another option could be Alam Shanti or it's sister hotels. They are located a little further away on the other side of monkey forest.

I've only heard good things about these establishments.

Also honeymoon guesthouse which is located in JL Bisma. It is about a 4 minute walk to the markets and monkey forest road so very central. Very relaxing, good breakfast and it also has a pool. Greenfields bungalow is near tegal sari which is another good choice so to is kebun indah.

I second Honeymoon Guesthouse. Great location, just a couple of minutes walk to main street, but down a quiet lane with rice field views. Beautiful rooms, magnificent tropcial gardens, great food and lovely pool.

I have to admit, I'm a Honeymoon Guesthouse girl!

A word of warning though: there are now two Guesthouses, Honeymoon One and Honeymoon Two. Both, of course, are beautiful. However, Honeymoon Two can be noisy as there are more comings and goings as the Cooking School is located there and above that is an open area where people often do Yoga. Not that Yoga is noisy, mind, but the gaggle of excited retreat stayers are as they walk straight past your room ;-)

So, when you email Honeymoon ask for a room in Honeymoon One. I believe the Laxmi Deluxe A on the first floor is the best room. Any room in Ubud on a higher floor is best, for maxium air flow. You wont need an A/C.

Oh, and breakfast is to die for! Not only that, but you can have it served as early as 6.30 am, so that you can get out and walk.
