We stayed in the Laksmi room, the ground level of the Garden House (I think). Everything was really great. The staff was very helpful, from arranging drivers, scheduling tours and cooking classes, bringing tea and breakfast and poolside drinks. They also have a complimentary shuttle to and from the central market area of Ubud.
Breakfast had many options, but I really enjoyed the muesli and the black rice pudding. The fresh juice is also delicious.
I think one of our favorite things about Alam Shanti was how quiet it was. It's so lose to several restaurants, spas, shops, and the Monkey Forest, but still it was peacefully quiet. And so beautiful! Very lush, green, but full of flowers!
We really loved being so close to the Monkey Forest. Hanging out with the monkeys was probably the highlight of our trip. They stay mostly in the park area, but they're completely free to wander wherever. I didn't see any on the grounds of Alam Shanti, but there were many walking around on the walk to many of restaurants and shops.
If we were ever lucky enough to return to Ubud, we would certainly hope to stay at Alam Shanti again.
