My husband and I and our daughter stayed in an Ayung Villa overlooking the river with its own swimming pool. The villa was very well appointed and the service was excellent. On our last day, where most hotels leave you alone, we arrived back from breakfast to find everything tidied up, beds made, towels folded - a really wonderful touch.
The food at the Swept Away restaurant was superb. We dined there three nights in a row and were never disappointed. An excellent choice of international food and also local cuisine. The local chef has got it absolutely spot on. Breakfast was also a delight in a restaurant overlooking the rice fields - what a view, what a place. Total peace. Our daughter used the Spa on a couple of occasions - she is a great Spa user and declared this one of the best.
We did a lovely walk with one of the hotel staff who took us across the rice fields and round his village, including looking round a traditional Balinese house - fascinating - well worth the hour and a half.
Also went round the local coffee plantation which was fascinating.
Transport into Ubud by the hotel is very helpful as it is a 15 minute trip and although I am sure you could walk it, it is quite a way.
The staff are all very efficient and keen to make your holiday what you want it to be.
We really enjoyed it here and would highly recommend it.
