This hotel was the perfect place to stay in Ubud. We stayed in a bungalow, upstairs was a king sized bed and downstairs another king size bed which my children shared. We all loved the out door bathroom. The staff were so friendly and helpful.They have a mini bus which they will drive you into Ubud in. Breakfast was great and you could upgrade at a small cost. We really loved the afternoon tea. Can't wait to go back again.

My wife and I stayed there for one night .
product: small, but well-decorated in Balinese-contemporary style. Villa styles with sharing pool. Room is Deluxe Lanai , not so big, with open air bathroom, not so useful for us . felt like we were sleeping in the country side cottage. it was so silent that we could not hear anything but our own voices.

Price: Abit overated, 165$/night . We could get one deluxe room in Conrad hotel in Bangkok!with this price. Pls consider carefully, ask for discount.

Place: Silent, good for privacy-lovers, but abit far off from the town .if you like to walk around the cities, and have small budget for taxi, this could be tiring.

Promotion: Nothing special. I was abit dissapointed that they didn't set honeymoon as stated in the e-mail to me and no Birthday cake as they promised on my arrival. Nothing really. But I don't take it seriously. I wanna tell the hotel not to promise anything if you are not sure you can do it for customers.

Overall: I feel abit dissapointed toward the service which is different from before and after , They promised manythings but they did nothing.(especially biethday cake & honeymoon setting std.)

We absolutely loved this undiscovered gem of a hotel on the outskirts of Ubud. The staff was unbeatable, and the quaint property meant that we enjoyed a very private, exclusive feeling stay for a fraction of what we could have paid elsewhere for much less of an experience. Because the hotel is a few minutes from the town center (but still within walking distance), it easily allowed me to slip into the rustic Ubud countryside and let the wonder of Bali work its magic on me.

The rooms were beautifully, if sparsely, decorated. I and my traveling companions shared two adjoining halfs of our own bungalow, complete with our own private pool! The staff was very responsive to our needs, offering us free shuttles to anywhere in Ubud. The small restaurant on-property served better-than-expected meals. A basic breakfast was included free, or you could upgrade for a nominal fee. The on-site spa offered a great, relaxing way to unwind. Aside from our own private pool, there was also a larger family pool available to all guests.

Our favorite part was the free rice paddy trek offered most mornings by the hotel. We were fascinated by the rice growing process, which is still the way of life for most Balinese people. Most staff spoke English very well, and were willing to answer my questions about their culture, families, etc.

I heartily recommend this hotel to those wishing to experience Bali on a more intimate level and escape from the cookie-cutter Western-style hotels so common in the world today. I've never felt more pampered and relaxed in my life.
