After a few days at Le Meridien, near Tanah Lot, we also wanted to see Ubud.
It is a totally different scene, but very very beautiful. Everything is green, you can hear all kinds of birds, see all kinds of butterflies, you will hear and see (down below) the river, and you are surrounded by beautiful big trees. Maya Ubud Resort is just beautiful and the Spa is breathtaking. We went for several massages and everytime we came there, we were amazed by the scenery. It really is like a fairytale! The hotel is very serene, quiet, japanese-like, and it's swimmingpool is astonishing.. The only thing is that the pool is surrounded by 16 beds, of which 8 in the shadow, so only 8 in the sun. which we thought was really not enough! It was very quiet there, so our children (13 and 16 years) were afraid to make a sound. We didn't really care because we were in a 'duplex villa', with its own small swimmingpool, so we have stayed there a lot. We had booked two plungepool villa's and when we checked in, we saw that its styling was absolutely wonderful! The thing was that one villa was meant for 2 or 3 persons, so that's why we needed two of them. But the terrace of the villa was a bit too small for the four of us, so this meant that we would have to stay each at our own terrace... We didn't like that idea so we went to the reception for an upgrade. The several people at the reception mentioned several prices for the upgrade, (!) but finally we spoke to someone with a reasonable upgrade-price, so we went to the duplexvilla ($1000 a night).The villa was beautiful! There was this 'plungepool' that was like a small swimmingpool, and there also was a jacuzzi, and two terraces, with great views. We only went to the hotel for the Spa, for our dinner, and two times there was a great performance of 'kecak' and Balidance. Wonderful to see. Our son missed a fitness, he didn't feel like going for yoga, pilates, meditation or painting class, and everywhere we normally travel, he always loves to use the fittness. So too bad for him that Maya Ubud didn't have one. At the end he did quite some walking, biking and we even took a private yoga lesson, right in the middle of the greenery, river, birds and beautiful trees. He and his sister thought it was a bit funny, but I must say this yoga lesson was for me the best experience of Bali..
