ALAM Jiwa at 01 DBL Deluxe Rice Field
This must be one of the nicest places to stay in all of Bali. We had a second floor villa overlooking the rice fields for six nights. We enjoyed the huge open dining area for our morning breakfast and coffee. Indeed, since we tend to be early risers, the staff arranged for us to have coffee on our veranda a full hour before the regular breakfast hour. One chooses your breakfast the night before and selects the time for it to be delivered to your villa. Sweet! There is a lovely little swimming pool which is a delight after an afternoon walking around Ubud. One can walk to the center of Ubud in about 20 minutes going through the monkey forest but it will probably take you longer as you’ll want to linger as you watch the monkeys making monkeys out of the tourist. The staff at Alam Jiwa are delightful. Great sense of humor, warmth, and smiles.
