While the place is quite nice, it is far from the center of Ubud, meaning that guests require a car or motorbike to get around. This is where the problem started, the hotel's car park is just up the street and requires that you walk on a completely winding, dark street to get to the hotel. This arrangement is completely unsafe and frankly ridiculous. When we pointed this out to the guards at the gate - who initially didn't even want to let us in - they were annoyed and rude.
I guess, the situation is probably ok if you get your own driver who will drop you off at the hotel and then wait for you at the nearby car park. Forget this place if you want to rent a car or might wish to have visitors. It is not often that you meet rude Balinese so the attitude of the security at the gate was a complete shock.
