With good friends from long time ago, we spend a week in Rangdu in one of the 6 villas. In the morning a fine breakfast was served (I ate bread), but the local food is also tempting. We conducted day trips to the beach at Lovina, to the waterfall at Munduk and the panoramic Lake Tamblingan. One afternoon we were guided by one of the local staff through the closeby rice fields, which gave us a unique view into the lifes of the happy Balinese people. The artistic village of Ubud is only 75 minutes away. Our transport was with a friendly and skillful, but not reckless local driver. Very pleasant in the dense traffic !
The local staff conduct a butler-like service, tailored to the demands and wishes of the guests. They are caring and show a heartwarming friendly hospitalty; much appreciated.
This was a brilliant other view in contrast to the more "confection"-like tourism that one encounters in southern Bali.
This residence is not likely for backpackers, but with a slightly colonial style touch, it offers a genuine rural sense of the other Bali; a bit more calm but nevertheless a great experience. Rangdu bravissimo, . . . I shall return,
Terima kasi, Frederik van der Putten
