We spent 3 nights on our honeymoon at this idyllic hotel, just outside of Central Ubud in Sanggigyan/Kedewatan. The hotel nestles on the jungle hillside and the individual chalets and suites have beautiful rooms with wood carvings - most also have an inside/outside shower and a fantastic balcony overlooking the valley.
The staff were superb and most days I started the morning with a swim, followed by an amazing breakfast down in the restaurant. The restaurant is surrounded by trees, a huge carp pond and is beautifully designed (as are all the architecural aspects of the Uma) The open air bar was also very convivial in the evenings (with a few cute lizards running up the walls dealing with the mosquitoes!)
Because we were on honeymoon the hotel had filled the bath with flower petals and gave us a complimnetary bottle of Bali rose wine whihc was a nice welcome! There was also complimntary yoga class at 4pm everyday in the most fantastic studio overlooking the jungle valley.
We ate in the restaurant on the last night and the food (and service) were both fantastic. Lombok Lobster and Thai Beef Salads being the highlight!
There is a regular shuttle drop/return into central Ubuid from the hotel during the day, and the drivers will (for a fee) drop you anywhere else within the local environs &/or after dark into Central Ubud.
The main thing that we liked about this hotel (apart from the fantastically friendly staff) was the stillness and chilled atmosphere. it is very quiet and you can really realy unwind and relax. Every morning there is a compllimentary walking tour at 8am and of course the aforementioned yoga. If you do crave a bit more 'action' and 'buzz' then there is a fab waoreng (traditional Balinese restaurant) just over the road called 'Naught Nauri's' that does great spare ribs & sates cooked on a bbq outside ... or just head into Central Ubud. The Spa treatments looked a little expensive but all the bathroom products were superb AND the facilities looked excellent (the yoga studio was attached to the spa!)
Overall I'd highly recommend this hotel for a casual visit or honeymoon - perfect place to chill out and forget the cares of the world!
