I would describe Hotel Tjampuhan Spa as my "happy place" having visited briefly in 2012 and being so impressed I had to take my friends back in 2013 so they could understand how good it was in Ubud.
The hotel is beautiful and the food in the restaurant exquisite. The setting is truly an area of outstanding natural beauty and it is conveniently placed for excursions e.g. Elephants and rafting.
One word of advice when staying here is that certain members of the staff can be very pushy in trying to secure your business. Say you wanted a trip to see the volcano; a member of staff would offer to arrange it for you for 500,000 rupiah when you could just flag down a taxi and have it for 200,000. I found one member of staff especially pushy when I was trying to organise a trip to Padang Bai. He would not leave me alone despite the fact I found alternative transport when I got there would have been 500% cheaper. Fortunately I was wise to their game so he got nothing from me, but an unwary traveller could be misled!
I would happily return to Tjampuhan Spa. If I ever get married I think it would make a fantastic honey moon destination. I could not be happier with this hotel.
