Our family of four stayed 6 nights in Umajati and it was the most restorative and restful holiday we've had. The whole place is infused with peace and a sense of natural alignment. It was luxurious accommodation - Javanese houses with soaring ceilings, long verandahs, gracious open spaces - which was reasonably priced with beautiful surrounds, lovely mindful staff who were attentive and helpful in many different ways. We ate yummy filling breakfasts in the morning, at night watched the rice paddies alive with fireflies accompanied by a fabulous chorus of frogs, geckos and other creatures which kept us mosquito-free. The owners William, Jean and Pung are lovely people who have developed Umajati as a local enterprise which is entirely grounded in the local community and local environment. So through their generosity and whole approach we felt quite connected to Ubud in a way we didn't think we'd experience as tourists. Make sure you visit their Threads of Life Gallery in Ubud which supports women in maintaining their traditional textile design and production skills. It is stunning. We all loved Umajati, even our teenage kids, and will definitely go back at some stage. Heavenly.
