I stayed at TIrta Arum after a recommendation from the Sri Sunari, which was booked for one of the two nights I was to spend in Ubud. After arriving in the pouring rain, I was shown to a delightful second-floor room, with its own balcony, private bathroom and dark-wood furniture with cozy cushions. The bathroom has a thatched roof that is open to the outside, but I didn't see any bugs (i did see a lizard or two that fled quickly!).
When I started to walk to town in the rain, one of the staffers provided an umbrella, and then, seeing how bad the rain was (ankle deep due to rushing water of an intense storm!), drove me to the main drag so that I could get a bite to eat. He even waited for me to finish so I wouldn't have to walk back in the rain!
Without rain, the house is only a 5-minute walk to the main road of Ubud. I really liked the location -- it was quiet at night and in the morning I heard roosters and chickens and other "country" sounds. I also could heard sounds of a gamelan frequently ... very beautiful! Breakfast was brought to me on my balcony in the morning -- lovely view of the courtyard and lush trees.
