The Champlung Sari Hotel was home base during our first ever trip to Ubud. After arriving in Denpasar late in the evening, and following the 40 minute drive to Bali's cultural capital, the friendly smiles and glasses of cold guava juice that greeted us at Champlung were more than welcome. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable, and offer a nice respite from the tropical heat. Our lower level room had a partly open air bathroom which, although we thought only added to the exotic vibe, can mean that you at times commune with the (friendly) wildlife - namely Bali's epic geckos.
In the mornings, a small buffet breakfast is available on a covered deck overlooking the swimming pool and surrounding jungle. Although it is not the best breakfast you're likely to see in Asia, it more than does the trick and will set you up for the morning. And yes, every now and then monkeys will conduct lightning croissant raids on unsuspecting diners. However, although some see that as a threat to life and limb, generally it is more of a humorous introduction to al fresco dining Ubud style. You're in Indonesia. Just go with it.
The hotel itself is located right near the end of Monkey Forest Road, close to the lush surrounds of the forest itself. Champlung is also nicely situated for many of Ubud's other attractions - about a 10 minute stroll from the central market. Depending on how long you stay, it can get a bit tedious stomping up and down Monkey Forest Road as you go to and from the centre of town, but on the other hand there are many shops, restaurants, cafés and spas to stop off at along the way. If you're exceedingly lazy, there is also no shortage of people you can flag down with the Balinese signal for 'taxi'.
All in all, the Champlung Sari is a very comfortable place to wake up and smell the frangipanis while in Ubud.
