Wow. This place is a three-course feast for the eyes. The layout and design of Narasoma's architecture includes contemporary and traditional Balinese design. On every corner, table or landing you'll find Balinese paintings, sculptures, beautifully carved wooden furniture, incredibly huge wall mounts made in stone and much more.
The staff are friendly, warm and welcoming. Breakfast is served on your balcony not long after you've called down (using the phone on the balcony) to order it. Choice between pancakes, eggs or jaffles - all served with a fresh fruit salad and tea/coffee. My room (Prangipani) had a double bed and single bed, fan, mosquito net, hot shower, private balcony, clothes airer and safety deposit box. Outside, there is a shared fridge with the other guests on your floor (on my floor, only one room either side of me). They provide a kettle and plenty of tea/coffee outside each room.
The pool is big enough to do lengths, result! For the price band, it's rare to find a pool that big with a decent deep-end for where Narasoma is located. I took full advantage of having a proper swim each day. The water was cool too - perfect as Ubud has been sticky-hot this month (April).
If you're a single traveller looking to meet others, this won't be the place for you. However, if you're looking for somewhere to get a decent night's sleep, read, swim and chill out - then it's ideal.
Impressive views of the nearby rice-fields and a narrow stream running past the property. This place is truly relaxing and for somewhere so quiet, it's surprisngly close to all the action. I would recommend this place and definitely make a return visit.
