The photos are a lie. When you get there, you ask yourself "really? this is the place we booked?"
The "King size bed" are two doubles pushed together, and they're not even the same quality as one another. my partner and i woke up as stiff as boards in the morning with aching backs, and so from then on we squished together on the one half decent single mattress.
The staff aren't very friendly or obliging, and the food is less than average. The classes they offer are useless and unenjoyable. We were both very careful and still we fell ill and were confined to the hideous walls of our room.
The view is quite nice (because it helps forget where you actually are), but nothing like the photos and there are far too many stairs to justify going to the pool or spa. The bath was ridiculously small...our romantic evening turned into two minutes in the bath before the water leaked out and left us cold and defeated.
The only good part is the free shuttle like the arms of god taking you out of the hell hole into the heart of ubud.
We ventured into the Monkey forest where we found the monkeys to be more hospitable than the staff of Bali Spirit. I would rather catch rabies from a rotting monkey carcass than relive our experience at the hell on earth that was Bali Spirit Hotel.
