We spent four days at Umajati and felt so grateful for the magic of this spot. It is clear that much love, thought, intention, and care has gone into its creation. The two villas ( actually traditional Javanese homes called "joglos" ) are artistic, authentic, and very, very comfortable. We chose Umajati because we wanted to have a better understanding of the culture and a different experience than we would have had at a hotel in town. That was absolutely the case. The 10 minute drive to downtown Ubud was an easy request, but the experience of being in a village, next to rice fields, assisted by a group of wonderful staff was just what we had hoped for. Everyone there gave personal attention to our requests from meals (excellent) to suggestions about places to visit and eat, yet we also had a great sense of privacy. With Jean and Choy's help, we were able to design day trips specifically geared to our interests and schedule. And we loved returning to the joglo, the pool, the gardens and just relaxing! Jean, Choy, Wayan S., everyone there really was so generous in giving time to assist us and ensure a comfortable and meaningful experience in Ubud, sharing experience and offering insight into the culture. Our stay there was a definite highlight of our two weeks in Bali.
