Feels like the real Bali

Reviewed April 7, 2012 NEW

We travelled to Ubud and Waka di Ume Resort from Seminyak, disappointed at how much dirtier and more polluted Bali had become in the six years since I was last there. Driving up the road to the resort from the centre of Ubud I felt the weight lift from my shoulders as rice paddies opened up on either side with the mountains as a backdrop. Waka di Ume uses its location to maximum effect, with its pool in a palm filled gully and rooms with views out over the rice paddies. The kitchen for their not-to-be-missed cooking class is in their organic garden, and their complimentary rice paddy treks are a great way to get a real feel for Ubud. Topped off by great service, rooms and food Waka di Ume is not to be missed.
