Kids loved waking up to feed the koi.
Seniors would wake up early to immerse in the sound of crickets and morning dew.
Teens could jump onto the mountain bike or swing into tennis action.
Finally, parenting adults just relaxed inside the hut next to the pool and enjoyed the shady breeze.
Large dining room accommodating 8-9 adults round table seating was perfect for family reunion, while 3 kids grabbed a quick meal at a coffee table next to the adults before sneaking away to continue their play.
Personal cook and driver were always ready at our service. With 2 complementary trips to Ubud town centre daily, spa indulgence at Jaens Spa, Monkey Forest sight seeing and dining out were just 5-10 minutes away. Even the must-go Bebek Tepi Sawah restaurant was just 15-20 minutes away. The much fancied Ibu Oka is an oversold recommendation, and I strongly recommend to instead try it as a take away dish to add to what the personal cook can offer at a reasonable price. Breakfast was complementary but never boring as we could have congee and local dishes for a change, as well as topping up the simple breakfast with sausage, bacon and ham from the supermarket.
The TV with cable channels and DVD titles are strategically placed at the mezzanine floor, making it totally irrelevant to everyone so that we could spend less time starring at the square box. Instead, jenga and card games were the better choice for fun and laughter.
For venturing out to other places of interest such as Tanah Lot, Kuta, Legian or the John Hardy Silver Factory, affordable hourly rate payable to the hotel made it totally stress-free to plan or make last minute changes.
We liked the manager Sri for her warm welcome and farewell, as well as her attentive occasional visits. Her team's hospitality throughout our stay was also commendable.
Firmer beds and more seamless downpayment were the only improvements we look forward to for our next visit.
