Spent my first few days of 2014 in Umah Gran. I must say it was a pretty good start to 2014!
Location is a bit far off from Central Ubud, but that's exactly what I wanted. Rent a scooter and you'll be in the jam packed Ubud in 15 mins (leisure ride) or even half that time(ghost rider mode on). Good thing about the location is that its near to Gianyar and Teges where all the local food fares(Awesome varieties of Warung food: Ayam Bakar/panggang, Nasi Campur, Bakso, Satay etc).
I got the mountain view deluxe room and it was splendid! Sleeping to the sound of nature and the river streaming down below you makes you feel welcome to their element. A good morning will be spent on the terrace/porch sipping their coffee(quite), lazying around while taking in nature's sights and sounds. Water pressure was good and I had no qualms about the room condition, really(or maybe new towels?).
Another positive were their staff. They weren't intrusive and every assistance needed was eased of easily with their help/local interests. Very friendly I must say, still, as guests we should be the one to approach them with a smile and its all good from there. All in all, Umah Gran is very much recommended by me.
