The biggest problem was the room. It was incredibly musty: Having spent time around Ubud previously this was the mustiest place we had been (and the most expensive). It also could have been cleaned better - we found cobwebs (when reaching for lamp switches etc)
The shuttle is a bit frustrating - other resorts in the area offer shuttle service on demand with pick up calls available from the tourist office, while Natura shuttle only leaves every other hour and a lift home from town has to be reserved ahead of time and only at 20 past the hour.
We got a great price from agoda.com but still wasn't worth the 50% off room rate considering the level of service and quality of accommodation we received elsewhere for less than $100/night.
Ultimately I think you're paying for the decoration of the room - which is lovely albeit a bit old/tired (needed a new coat of paint, bathroom faucet was faulty and didn't always turn off)
Also internet signal was so weak it barely worked... which again at previous less expensive spots nearby wasn't an issue.
The property is fantastic, the pool is beautiful and the monkeys running around the forest at sunset were fun.
The staff + service were great: quick response to service inquiries + very attentive.
The food at the restaurant is incredible.
