Being that I was traveling solo to Bali, I opted to let a travel agent book my rooms for me. When I arrived, I was immediately taken by the lush grounds and attentive staff. My bags were quickly collected and I was shown to my room at the back of the property. I was in room 301 and it was luxurious and quiet. The king sized bed with its crisp linens and oversize bathroom with picture window were welcoming. They also provide bottled water and a mini-bar/refrigerator. I hadn't even had time to open my suitcase when there was a knock on my door: The hotel had sent me a welcome drink of watermelon juice. Very refreshing! The room overlooks the spa and rice field and early in the mornings, I would sit out on my balcony and listen to mantras being chanted and roosters crowing whilst watching birds and dragonflies dart about in the first rays of morning sunlight. The breakfasts are served buffet-style and are satisfying. The fresh juices are amazing! And, they will serve you an egg any fashion you like if it is not available in the buffet. What makes this hotel stand out, in my mind, is that it makes you feel like you are "home". They offer free internet stations 24/7 and wi-fi, which I didn't use. The pool area is well kept and a perfect place to meet other travelers and make quick friends. That is when you realize that this is the type of hotel people come back to again year after year. The friends I made arranged for a driver to take us to dinner and back again. It is part of the hotel service. I felt cocooned in this magical place surrounded by lotus pools, rice fields and beautiful sculptures of Hindu gods and Buddhas even though Ubud's city life was only at the end of the driveway.
