Pondok Iman was amazing never have we treated ourselves to such a gorgeous and luxurious stay. Like most we were apprehensive about the pictures matching the actual experience - well it does. The place is immaculate. The living space is enormous and would be a great place for two couples with small babes or a large family. The pool was perfect and a must personally, especially with children who simply just want to play in the water most of the day.
It is a slight walk (5 min) off the main road in Penestanan, but its beautiful one and felt all the more special and intimate because of it. A 15/20 minute walk will take you into Ubud otherwise drivers are easy to find and will happily have you in the centre in a matter of minutes. We actually chose the latter option as we found the road into Ubud a little busy with children. Don't forget to visit the Yellow Flower Cafe (Penestanan) this became our second home - the food is delicious and the atmosphere is cool shady and relaxed and Sari organics while a longer hike is oh my... so definitely worth it.
We personally feel that a place is only good as the people you meet and how they make you feel during your stay. The staff here were amazing, Helen is warm and welcoming and was very helpful organising medical help for our daughter who unfortunately dislocated her elbow. Her staff were kind and always willing to help and make our stay more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this place for people to stay.
