We recently stayed in the Lumbung room for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon and it was just gorgeous. So much tranquility but also thoughtful touches of luxury. Lumbung house is a converted rice barn overlooking paddy fields a few minutes walk from reception. If you walk through the monkey forest it really isn't more than 10 minutes walk from Ubud, but the staff will happily take you into and pick you up from anywhere in Ubud you want to go, up until 10pm. The swimming pool was lovely and peaceful and I had a facial at the spa which was great.
There is no restaurant or tv so you have to come wanting to get away from it all, but the Laka Leke restaurant down the road is excellent and in beautiful surroundings. Plus there are all the restaurants of Ubud a ride away. The breakfasts are lovely and can be brought to your room, which is a nice touch.
The nightlife is plentiful but only to be expected in the Indoesian countryside! There is a great chorus of cicadas, frogs and geckos. There are of course geckos inside too as this hotel is not a sealed air conditioned box, but they help keep the insects away and are kind of cute! I didn't see any large spiders at all and mosquitos weren't much of a problem. The staff bring mossie coils every evening and we had one burning in our bedroom each night.
I would highly recommend this lovely little hotel for a spot of calming tranquility!
