I really am stunned at the reviews of this hotel. I normally avidly check trip advisor before choosing hotels but I ended up being taken to this hotel by a driver after a change in plans and so was interested to see what the reviews of Biyukukung were like at the end of my holiday. I honestly expected it to be ranked as one of the top hotels in Ubud.
We stayed there for 4 nights and were given a deluxe room as the standard rooms were being renovated. We were charged Rp500,000 (around $50) and were told that they normally charge $70 for that room type. They said after a couple of days we could move to the standard for $40, which seemed like a really good deal but we were quite settled after 2 days so didn't bother. We did have a quick peek at the ground floor of one of the standard room and the only difference seems to be the bathroom was smaller because it didn't have the large bath tub. The reception staff were absolutely lovely and made us instantly want to stay as they were so welcoming. The deluxe room is on two levels - the bottom level has a large hallway with a wardrobe, (safe inside) washbasin (with hairdryer, kettle and tea and coffee making facilities nearby), fridge and luggage rack. This then led on to the large bathroom at the back, which had a huge marble bath and large natural looking stone area with a really poweful shower. Upstairs was a really light airy room with massive patio windows overlooking the beautiful rice fields. The patio opened onto a little balcony and there was also a much larger balcony below with a day bed and table and chairs. The room had aircon and flat screen tv (with indonesian channels only). The bed was absolutely huge and extremely comfortable. There was a surrounding net but I think this was more for show as we didn't really encounter any mosquitos. Breakfast was between 7 and 11, which was lovely to have the choice to just laze around and have a late breakfast. Breakfast was very nice and better than other places we've stayed at in Ubud. As well as the standard coffee/tea and fruit platter, you had the choice of a variety of pancakes, jaffles or eggs done in any way you'd like. The breakfast area also had a lovely view of the rice terrace and also the beautiful infinity pool below. There was also free wireless internet access in the restaurant or you could pay a small amount to use the computer there. The hotel's in a good location - out of the hussle and bussle of the main monkey forest road but still within easy walking distance. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops nearby. We didn't try the spa so I can't really say what that was like although the staff there were very nice. All in all we would definitely go back, especially if we could get the same price deal again, which made this place the best option we'd come across in the Ubud area.
