Taman Rahasia provides a really neat experience for those seeking a laid-back garden/jungle setting on the edge of Ubud, a tourist/art colony kind of town. The inn has a small number of 2-story villas, each of which are relatively new but give the appearance of coming from an earlier time period. Décor is artsy-craftsy. Rooms are relatively large with very comfortable beds with mosquito netting [not needed, however, but it adds to the effect]. It is great waking up in the morning to the sun flowing through cascading plant life and the sound of assorted babbling brooks.
Breakfast at the inn is quite good. Dining is at an outdoor covered area by the pool with assorted greenery. Wifi is a freebie and signal strength is best in the dining and nearby office area, although we were able to occasionally pick up a weak signal in the front of our villa. Another recent change is that the inn now accepts credit cards. That is a significant, welcome change.
When it comes to tours, my wife and I are picky, having experienced some truly horrible group tours around the world. The manager was very helpful in lining up a car/driver/tour guide for us. We saw what we wanted, stayed as long as we wanted, and ate where we wanted with none of the mandated stops at shops that typically accompany group tours. Upon our return to the inn at night, the manager was very kind in meeting our requests quickly and politely. The staff were so nice and helpful.
We would definitely return to this inn and will recommend it to all of our friends.
