My wife and I came here for our honeymoon. We really we were made to feel at home with amazing staff and the warm Balinese experience. This resort was major luxury, everything from the pool to the views and the restaurant.
The hotel is only 15mins walk to the centre of Ubud where you can browse shops, talk to artists, wood carvers and sculptors, nice eateries and cafés, or see Balinese cultural dances. The monkey forest with old temples covered in monkeys is great (don't buy the food for them if you don't want them climbing all over you).
Many side streets in Ubud offer walks into rice fields or ridges overlooking valleys, rivers and rainforest. My favorite was walking out to Sari Organica and watching the fireflies on the ricefields at night while eating dinner.
You can do all this then walk home, plunge in the infinity pool, and then relax all afternoon.
If you want tours ask for Delhi who is a very nice man with great English, and very keen to teach about Balinese culture. He can take you on bike, temple, walking or even volcano trekking tours. Ask at reception for him. The others guides may also be good, but we had Delhi and he was great.
Came home happier for the experience!More
