“Elegant tranquillity within the heart of Ubud, a rarity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Jonathan Copeland manages this compound of beautiful accommodations, just before the steep descent from the main road down through the cutting to the Ibah, the Tjampuhan and Murni's Warung whence items may be ordered from the menu and delivered, gratis, to the beautiful dining room, by motorcycle (my Martini was not diminished by having travelled the distance in a little jar and decanted). Jonathan is ably assisted by some lovely and competent staff who speak English well. We stayed in the House, which is exactly that -- a house rather than an accommodation, built for one of Murni's former husbands many years ago. And that is the best thing about it. It is old school, the tropics, a throwback to the days when Ubud was a place that fired the western imagination rather differently from today, when Margaret Mead, Charlie Chaplain, Arie Schmidt and others hung out. I have been to Bali several times, each time researching accommodation very carefully. And this was the accommodation I chose this time round, with young children, for a couple of reasons. First, Murni is an institution and Jonathan is a lovely Englisman whom I met last time -- a lawyer like my myself, but smart enough to have got out in favour of a tropical life. Secondly, I liked the look of it and the reality surpassed the website, which is a rare but endearing characteristic of an accommodation. Thirdly, it was well located for a group unable to walk very far -- to wit my two young kids. We enjoyed our stay in this accommodation immensely and would recommend it heartily, especially to travellers.
