We arrived after spending 6 days just outside seminyak and we were so pleased to see the ubud region and the rice fields as this is more the landscape we had in our minds eye. We arrived early about 11am fully expected to have to wait until we could get into our villa, but no! It wasn't A problem we were greeted with frangipan garlands and shown to villa 101, where they checked you in villa with a welcome drink. The villa was gorgeous, an extremely large pool and beautifully maintained sunny garden. The staff were excellent called you by your fist name and nothing was too much trouble. The villa cleaned in the morning discreetly, usually when you were out or at breakfast and again at turn down about 5 ish. The breakfast setting
was stunning with views over rice field and volcanoes as the back drop! Breakfast was very good with an option for every taste. The courtesy bus was fantastic, we never had any issues with late pick up and they even dropped us at the end of our stay to our next hotel free of charge. The grounds are gorgeous and it was a nice touch that they let the locals in to bathe in the river and collect water from 5-7pm although if you are easily offended by the odd naked man washing his personals then avoid the riverside bar at this time! Only a couple of negatives if I had to extremely picky was the jacuzzi bath had a faint smell of sewage when turned on, and the drinks at the riverside bar were a little pricey £36 for two glasses of wine and a coke, but I believe there is a tax issue involved in part. We ate one night at the bridges restaurant, wow! Not cheap but awesome! Well worth a visit for a special meal, maybe book ahead for a table overlooking the river. Totally stay here you will not be disappointed . We stayed in a hillside villa and everyone raves about the riverside ones but from what we could see the layout of the villa is exactly the same and the pool was set to one side as opposed to centrally. The hillside villa was incredibly private to where as you could walk to the front and behind the river villas. But book what you want. We loved it and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
