The hotel feels very private and secluded as it has only ten villas. You hardly see the rest of the guest and the staff to guest ratio is very high, hence the service is excellent.
The location is great in the outskirts of Ubud, overlooking a river and the rice fields. We were lucky that we happened to be there for the harvest, it was very interesting to see the farmers collecting the rice in the traditional way just outside of our villa!
There is a free shuttle to and from the hotel to Ubud centre once an hour or so, it is very handy as even if taxis are cheap it is quite a pain to negociate a price with the drivers.
The food is amazing although quite pricey; is worth following the owners recommendations for restaurants in Ubud, he really knows what he is talking about.
We tried the spa and the cooking class. I highly recommend both, the cooking class was particularly great fun.
Overall a great experience, this is the place to go to recharge batteries.
