This is a training school for local underprivileged children. Yes, your stay will be contributing to a worthy cause, perhaps that alone will encourage your booking. However, for someone looking for relaxation and privacy, this is not the place for you. The staff organise everything in a great way, but there are too many of them and there is LOTS of teenage chatter and singing early in the morning and throughout the day. I used the spa, where a young lady awkwardly watched me undress and then proceed to practise her English during my relaxing massage (which it was not).
The resort itself is in a beautiful setting, yet rice fields mean a lot of flies, also typically Ubud does not enjoy the good weather of the Balinese beaches as frequently. The pool is not heated, and mostly freezing cold (no one used it during my stay) and the second pool was out of use and looking very murky.
I chose to stay here even though the "resort" was miles out of Ubud centre as another reviewer had said there was a free taxi shuttle. It's worth noting that this does not apply to Balinese holidays (where you are marooned for a day without transport, restaurant or cafe) and the taxis do not go into town early enough to catch the coach tours (that leave at 8:30 am). Drivers will offer you tour services but won't encourage other guests to join or organise a whole tour, prices should be negotiated, as they will ask you for as much as they dare.
I picked this hotel as it was a mere $50 for a spa resort! I realised this was hugely overpriced and left early (check cancellation terms!!) The only hotel I have ever left early!
