On arrival from the vile Nusa Dua to the opening drive/alley of Tiing Gading in Ubud I must say that the outlook was rather bleak and dismal and depressing. However on stepping through the first doorway we were transported into a different world. We were met by the owners who immediately exuded warmth and sincerity. Thereafter all of my doubts vanished. We had been recommended this property by friends and found it to fit exactly with their description. There are several double storey bungalows surrounding a lovely lush garden (slightly overgrown in some areas). We were in a top floor apt, the bedroom and bathroom are a little small but then on the other hand, the only time spent inside is the night time and the bed was large, old fashioned and very, very comfortable. The best part is the balcony which is large and has two comfortable chairs on it. These we used for much of our time in the complex and occasionally (especially early morning) some hot tea and lemon would appear and await our attention. This tea was perfect with the lemon squeezed into it and gave us a kick start every day. The Staff in the complex were exemplary, quiet, efficient and pleasing on the eye! The breakfast choices were varied and served in an unhurried fashion. We had the pleasure of taking dinner in Tiing Gading for three nights of our stay and food was superb, well cooked by Siti. She was also very good at organising our trips around the city and environs and nothing was ever a bother. Her husband Allan was also a character and proved very loquacious and often amusing and always kind. All in all a very pleasant break, in quiet surroundings (even the calls of the nature and animals around during the night seemed to blend in with the peace!). There were also three pussy cats who were occasional tempted to roll over on their back and purr! What more does a holiday maker need? I recommend everybody to go there soon before it becomes too popular and loses its charm.
