What a wonderful quiet place to stay in Ubud. Guests are personally greeted by Oka Wati herself and she makes an effort to check that everything is to your liking.
There are only about 10 rooms - some standard and some deluxe. With traditional Balinese architecture and stone carvings we found it a pleasant alternative to the normal resort style rooms. There is no TV or phones in the rooms but there is air conditioning and a fridge. Each room has a balcony area with tables and chairs where you can quietly read and appreciate the beautiful gardens. The pool - although not large is more than adequate for a refreshing swim. As the hotel is more suited to adults only this ensures a quite read around the pool is always possible. Pool towels are supplied.
The resort is located off Monkey Forrest road. The laneway is diagonally opposite the playing fields cnr of Jalan Dewi Sita and Monkey Forrest Road. There are some small stalls in the the first lane and then you turn right down another small cobbled lane way. You will have to walk as there is no car access down these lanes but its only a few minutes.
Breakfast is included in the tarrif and can be served to you on your balcony or at the gazebo over looking the pool and rice paddies. We found the selection quite adequite but if you are after a wider selection there are pleanty of restaurants on Monkey Forrest road. There is a 7/11 type store near by for any other needs. WiFi is available at a cost at the resort, but a lot of the restaurants offer this access free when dining. The main market square is only a 5-7 min walk if you don't stop but with all the tempting shops in between this is very hard. There are lots of money changers also between the resort and market place, but be sure to use one that doesn't charge commission or tax.
I would highly recommend Okawati Hotel for those seeking a quiet stay somewhere that is close to all the shops and market place. They have one family room which has a queen bed and a single bed. Twin bedding is also available.
