Summary: excellent value, perfectly located, green and tranquil Ubud ambiance, lovely staff, delicious breakfast (included), everything worked well in our room.
We really enjoyed our week at Gayatri II Bungalows. The location is unbeatable: perfect if you like to be in the center of the action. Gayatri is only 100 meters (equidistant) from both the Monkey Forest and the Royal Palace. Shopping and restaurants are literally directly outside the little laneway down which one walks to arrive in this tranquil landscaped oasis. So central, yet so peaceful. Our villa was on the ground level and had a nice terrace/veranda overlooking its own tropical garden and the 'postcard' swimming pool. Rice paddys in the background complete the view. The bungalows have a charming Balinese/hindu exterior so you feel like you are in a temple compound. The interior of our villa was basic but everything worked very well (most importantly the A/C and refrigerator). Breakfast was included in our rate and there was a nice selection (Western and Indonesian) of good sized portions - I recommend the banana pancakes and the fresh juices. Tea and ground Bali coffee beans were complimentary in-room. At just over US$30/night, Gayatri represents amazing value. We would also like to thank the Management Team who were responsive to our requests and very open/forthcoming with information when asked. Overall, highly recommended and we will definitely stay here again. Boyd (Melbourne) and Rini (Jakarta).More
