Serenity in Ubud

Reviewed February 18, 2012

This is a marvelously run hotel that is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud main street. It is probably the perfect get away for anyone seeking relief from the hectic rush of city life.

The 2nd floor deluxe room that my wife and I stayed in was huge and overlooked a scenic swath of padi. The balcony, complete with two chairs and a coffee table provided a nice chill-out spot for us to take in the view. Despite having seen the reviews about the bath-tub, we were still nicely surprised at the size of the bathtub, which was a comfortable fit for two. The room itself was tastefully decorated and comfortably air-conditioned.

Above and beyond the physical comforts, it was the human touch that made the stay truly memorable! The staff were very polite and friendly, always asking after us and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable, such as bringing us iced teas while we were tanning by the pool. On top of that, the food at the hotel restaurant was delightful and reasonably priced compared to the fare offered in Ubud.

While it is a distance from Ubud main street, the hotel provides a free shuttle service on demand to and fro the Main Street. It also offers reasonably priced transport to various attractions in Bali, such as Kintamani and the rice terraces.

The one drawback were the thin walls between rooms so if you are a light sleeper, do bring along ear plugs!

Would love to go back there again!
