There might be better hotels in Ubud but I doubt it. If you're looking for peace and pampering after the bustle and crowds in southern Bali then this is probably the place for you. The suites are beautifully fitted out in local hardwoods and ceramics, the views of the lush vegetation are second to none, service is highly professional and the pool is excellent.
My only quibbles would be: (1) the food, which is okay but frankly not commensurate with a hotel in this price range; and (2) the shuttle service into central Ubud, which can be erratic - all the hotels drop guests off at the same place and as they tend to use the same type of transport, it can be difficult to spot your car when you want to return to the Hotel, not least because the Hotel's cars do not to display the Komaneka at Bisma's name (why?).
One tip: if you agree to take a tour of the local villages around Ubud with a driver from the hotel, make sure you know what you want to do beforehand. Don't be browbeaten into following the driver's suggestions as they may have a different agenda (and tastes) to yours. Ours just wanted to get us into specific shops, possibly because he got commission from them. Further he chose the tackiest paddy field view imaginable - unless you like tourist tat and crowds, avoid the village of Ceking even though it's quite close.
