One advice: Do not wait, book this place!
Me and my girlfriend stayed 3 nights at the Moksha hotel in August and it was undoubtedly the best place we have stayed at during our Indonesian holidays.
This quiet hotel, located in the middle of beautiful rice fields but still close to the Monkey Forest street and the center of Ubud (no more than 5 minutes by foot) is truly one of a kind.
Mega and Anda, the two young owner of this place, are the most friendly people ever, and will do anything to please you. They are extremely available and their English is excellent.
Every day Anda prepares you an amazing breakfast, including tea, different juices, bread pancakes, balinese specialties, fruits etc. In the afternoon, it's tea time, so Anda prepares you a tea (or juice, she really tries to provide you what you want).
The swimming pool is very nice and quiet. The rooms are brand new, quiet, very clean and confortable (the mattress is excellent). The bathroom is also very nice and clean (sometimes hard to find in Indonesia...)
In one word, we could not have been happier about an hotel, and we really recommend it to anyone willing to spend an amazing time in Ubud for a reasonable price!

My wife and I are both working in the hospitality industry, we both are used to enjoy luxurious hotels and restaurants so we can say we can be pretty exigent and hard to please.
We found this 4-rooms hotel by accident as we were looking for an other one in the evening (that we never actually found, fortunately) and were immediately charmed.
Anda, the young lady at the reception made us feel very welcomed and showed us the rooms, after that we didn't even have to think about it... and immediately booked it for an entire week.
They say devil is in the details ... and this place is heaven, every little thing is thought to ease your life.
Starting by the breakfast, generous and delicious, from eggs to pastries and juices, and obviously the now-famous Balinese coffee. (If you need it really on time early, you should precise it and as it is really copious you should plan at least an hour to enjoy it)
You will relax a lil bit by and in the pool, and then reality will come back to you and you will realise that you can't stay there forever, Ubud has so much to offer that you finally decide to visit the town ...
After a long and warm walk in the city centre (that you reached by a few minutes walk from the hotel), you will want to rest in your room or by the pool. You'll see that it has been cleaned and the charming staff will propose you hot or -lovely- iced tea, courtesy of the house ...
Best is to wait, and admire, the beautiful sun setting on the ricefields, from blue to fire-red, laying on the comfy sun beds or still cooling down in the pool before going back to the crowded streets of Ubud, because you didn't came to Bali to visit a hotel ... and hunger is starting to appear.
After your Nasi Campur or Mie Goreng has been eaten and your Bintang has been drank (next door, we recommend!), your day is almost over and the only thing you want right now is lay down and sleep until you have to do it all over again.
You will slowly go "home" (because that's how you call this place now, trust me, it will come very fast) and enjoy the peaceful candle-lighted place. You'll notice that they took time to "open" your bed and leave some sweets and water, you'll thank god or whoever you believe in for finding paradise on earth (and realise it has 5-star service) before you fall into Morpheus' arms.
This review may be a lil bit long but I know how hard it is to find a place to stay somewhere you've never been before, and I really wanted to make you feel the atmosphere that is reigning here.
This is a family-owned hotel, where they will call you by your name and always have a smile on their face (seriously, AL-WAYS).
As it opened only 3 weeks ago, everything is brand new and still shining, and you'll find there the perfect combination between a luxurious modernity and the Balinese generosity.
The only wrongs there are in this place are the mosquitos and every kind of insect you'll find in your room, as you're close to the rice field you can't avoid it ... but the staff regularly spray a repellant in your room and clean it anyway.
The Internet connection is also very unstable but I'm pretty sure they got this problem everywhere on the island.
Last but not least, the price ... No it's not the cheapest place in Ubud (I've booked it and ... ran away), but it's actually really cheap for the services you get. Honestly, it's not the crazy-expensive you'll find in the major hotel chains or the other villas (yet you got better service) and you'll just just pay a few euros more than the average hotels in town for something that worths more than it.
You'll be surprised, but in a very good way, by the professionalism you'll find around here, Mega (the owner) offers a really high-quality service.
If you're as lazy as I am, or simply in a a hurry to decide where you will sleep, in a few words :
If you come to Bali, you have to visit Ubud, and if you come to Ubud, you have to stay in this hotel :)
