During a 10-day trip bicycling around Bali, we booked one night at the Tegal Sari. We were unable to book a "regular" room, so we agreed to take the Villa Bambu -- a little more expensive than average for our trip, but we wanted to stay at the hotel. Once we found the hotel (the sign is a bit small!), we weren't sure what we had gotten into by the small, understated reception area. But as we walked through the property, saw the rice paddy views, and approached the front of the Villa Bambu, we knew we had lucked out. It's a freestanding villa set among a walled garden with private pool, deck, outdoor mini-kitchen, enclosed bedroom (3 walls of glass with wood floors), huge stone outdoor bathroom, satellite TV, and internet. (Actually, we had some trouble with the wireless connection and the staff devoted themselves to making it work for us.) It was heavenly -- gorgeous decor, total privacy, a real experience that was worth every penny. Especially the next morning when we had breakfast delivered to our outoor eating area (you have to pay for the breakfast but it's only $5!). We should have stayed another night, but that gives us something to look forward to next time. We did not see the interior of any regular rooms, but they looked nice from the outside and the second floor rooms would have fantastic rice paddy views. The regular pool seemed a bit small, but I think visitors probably spend time in Ubud for the crafts and save the serious pool time for the resorts near the coasts.
