Whenever our kids are on holiday, my wife & I make efforts to escape from our busy hotel works to another hotel to relax for 2 or 3 days of family quality time. Such short breaks are always anxiously awaited by all of us and recently we stayed at Beji Resort in Ubud.
This resort is not big but is definitely generous for the ground space and natural view. With only 30 odd rooms, it has very spacious garden areas and 5 swimming pools...!
The biggest pool is located next to its restaurant with a small diving board. Diving board is indeed a rare facility around Ubud hotels as generally resorts here do not tolerate noise from excitements. The other 4 pools are beautifully designed, offering tranquility ambiance of tropical valley. The best pool for relaxation is located down below at its valley with great view.
However, if you are physically challenged, you might need to consider the many steps you will have to go through around the hotel area (as the hotel is located in the valley). Wifi was also another facility which the management might need to consider for improvement (although it was freely offered to inhouse guests, it was very slow and intermittent). 3G access for mobile phone and tablet was quite week.
We stayed in one of their air-conditioned family rooms (number 01 and 03). There were 2 bedrooms and a seating area in between with generous room facilities available. Each bedroom is equipped with LCD TV, small refrigerator, personal safe, IDD phone. For the room rate they charge, Beji Resort is definitely a great find for traveling couples to families seeking for relaxing holiday in a traditional Bali resort atmosphere. The only con I could think of was the absence of ventilation in their bathroom/toilets. Although it is cleaned daily as part of their room service, the smell left from our personal activities was inevitable and took quite some time to escape from our bedrooms. However, we managed to avoid this by attending to their public toilet every time we wanted to pass the "big waste" (their public toilet happened to be located near our rooms). In view of the value, this was however not an issue for us.
Daily breakfast is included in the room rate and is freshly prepared with sufficient choices for Asian and western breakfasts with various egg styles, made to order, in their cute open air restaurant. Two kinds of fruit juices, breads, tea and coffee are provided as part of their daily buffet display.
Their staff were very friendly and helpful, from the prompt reservation staff (miss Rini), their reception staff and all their wait staff in the restaurant (which unfortunately I don't remember their names). They organized some bike rents for our family to venture Ubud's rice fields and off-beaten tracks. Biking is one of the many outdoor activities which we never miss out in Ubud.
In all, this resort is a great find and has stolen our hearts. Although its location is a bit away from Ubud centre, it is close to many well-known restaurants such as Warung Naughty Nuri's for great pork ribs and Mozaic Restaurant for fine dining. We will definitely return in near future.
