I would definitely recommend this place for a few days of rest and relaxation, especially if you are tired of the hustle and bustle of Ubud or south Bali and would like to see a slice of 'real Bali'. Wayan and Nyoman who run the resort are wonderful and extremely accommodating hosts, the views are stunning, the bungalows are private and comfortable and there are lots of activities on offer ... such as cooking classes, massage, dance lessons, trekking, rafting etc. The woman who does massages is excellent, the best we experienced in Bali. You can stroll through the rice fields or village and everyone calls out and says hello, it really does feel like authentic Bali. We travelled as a large party, five adults and four children and everyone had a great time. My husband hiked up Agung with a guide and was a little disappointed in the guide's ability and personal skills, but otherwise all the other activities we took part in were of an excellent standard. We travelled all over Bali and this place was a highlight for us, mostly because of the fantastic staff. I'd recommend a two or three night stay here. We had had an experience in Ubud with a not-so-friendly German host/hotel owner who complained about our young kids making noise (thats what kids do!) so it was a breath of fresh air to arrive at Great Mountain. Thanks a million.
