This was our first place on our trip to Bali and the Gili Isles and what a way to start your holiday. We had arranged a pick up at the airport and although it is a little expensive, $25 it was worth the money as the driver was great explaining things streight away and answering our questions about bali on the hour journey to the hotel. The location is just outside the centre of Ubud but with the very handy shuttle service or the interesting walk through monkey forest that only takes 10 minuites its the best of both worlds as it is so peaceful and tranquil where it is positioned. It was late when we arrived so they left all the checking in formalities to the morning and showed us to our room, Shindu. What a room its like stepping into another world the ornate doorway , veranda with daybed and large table and chairs. The two rooms are very large, the first with an enormous four poster bed with mosquito netting, AC and a ceiling fan, the second an open air changing, bathroom with our own pond ,garden and enormous bath. They light lots of mosquito coils all over the veranda and bathroom in little clay pots and we didnt have a single bite. The next morning we ventured into the amazing grounds and little paths that lead to the 2 pools and the spa building, the new pool near the new spa was such a loveley area and after our very reasonable spa session we sat and ate cake and drank ginger and lemongrass tea and listened to the tranquil noise of the Bali countryside. We asked the hotel to arrange a full days touring the temples, rice paddy fields ect and we would like to give special thanks to our driver who gave us such fantastic memories , lots of information we would never have known he was so great. I could go on and on about this place it was just so perfect, they served our breakfasts on our veranda each morning and they would come and make there offerings lighting there insence sticks. Here we felt we saw the real Bali and its somthing you have to experience if you go to Bali dont just go to the beach resorts of the south you wont get a real insight into what Bali and its people are really like, just wonderful
