quiet, Authentic, balinese hotel. i'm right now at padma resort legian-paying Five times the cost of puri taman sari, and wish i was back!!!!

my daughter and i stayed in a rice patty view room. from sunrise, you see the gorgeous green fields and watch locals plant on the terraces. you are in a rural village. ssooo much better than staying at a huge, fancy resort or in a large tourist filled city. the hotel was a royal residence and the grounds are lovely and authentic. ceremonies are held on site. there was a wedding one evening. we were able to enjoy the festivities, dances, and traditional music.

food-excellent and inexpensive. staff-friendly and helpful. rooms- my daughter loved the comfy bed covered by canopy net and called it her princess bed. outdoor show-clean, warm. great to shower under the stars. daybed overlooking the fields. small but very nice infinity pool.

i can't believe so few tripdvisor users have reviewed this place. it is a hiddn gem
