In April we kicked off a six month trip to SE Asia with a two month stay at the Swan Inn in Ubud, Bali. Very convenient to central Ubud, the hustle, bustle of Monkey Forest Road evaporated once inside the serene grounds.
This is a homestay, with bungalows of various grades and sizes located in a family compound. The family and staff were unobtrusive, most pleasant, friendly, and helpful, and not at all pushy in the selling of tourist activities and transport. Depending on your needs and budget - room size, type, privacy, and newness varies. Bungalows with kitchens are available.
While there, we rescued a tiny kitten on the grounds. Though the family was not obligated to take the kitten in, they did so, and further, found it a welcome home. Soon after, the woman who took the kitten stopped at our bungalow to introduce herself and to share photos of the happy kitten. A good story for all....
As we tend to stay long in our travels, management can sometimes make or break the travel experience. We plan to return to the Swan Inn which I think sums up our rating of this venue.
