Black Penny was the second stop for my wife and I on our 2.5 week honeymoon in Bali. As a recently built property, there was limited information available about the villas, so our expectations were tempered. Needless to say, we were blown away. The rooms were simple and quaint, the views were fantastic, and the value was exceptional. The hotel only has 10 villas, which sit directly above the Ayung River, with spectacular views of the river (depending on where your vila sits) and the surrounding jungle/forest/greenery. The rooms are basic, with a unique washroom concept, located in the outdoors (which is mostly sheltered, although water does seep in a bit if it rains). Each room also has a private infinity pool (unheated) with tremendous views of the valley below; it's easy to spend a day soaking in the scenery. There is also a direct route down to the Ayung River (through the rice fields) from the hotel - only a 7 min walk. The staff are always friendly and hospitable, and eager to make your stay enjoyable. The villas are about 15-20 min from Ubud Centre, with shuttles running relatively infrequently (a taxi only costs 50-60k IDR). Being a small (and new) hotel, it doesn't have all the resources and amenities of a larger resort - but (if the message wasn't clear already) the view is unforgettable!
