We were a little apprehensive initially due to the distance from the town centre. We booked after reading previous reviews and were very happy with our choice.
The location is about 10min drive out of Ubud centre, the hotel supplies an on call shuttle and driver service between 9am-10pm - you can book a return time or use a phone in town to call when you want to come back to the hotel - In town we tended to ask restaraunt, cafe, shop staff to use their phones after we made a purchase of course, it would have been a good idea to have organised a sim card to use in Ubud but for our 4 night stay it hardly seemed worth it initally, half way through the stay with average of 2 trips to town a day - it probably would have been worth it.
A suggestion of pure extravagant convenience would be for management to have a selection of cheap phones for guests to take to town for use to text or call for pick up - however I can see how this could be taken advantage of/misused by naughty guests making distance calls.
The room was large, the ceiling high, the bath huuuge!! As 6 foot + tall people we were able to have a bath, quite a novelty that shorter people probably wouldn't quite apreciate haha. The bed is comfy with mosquito net attached, the aircon made short work of the heat despite the large size of the room. The balcony view 'rice terrace field' is lovely the area was plowed up during our stay to prepare for the new crop to be planted - I can imagine the view would be spectacular when full lush and green.
The food - breakfast is ordered the day before and you book in the time you would like to eat, in the restaraunt or your room - there are ample choices from traditonal Indonesean food to western options including full cooked breakfast, pancake selections, crossaints etc - all served with choice of juice and coffee/tea/hot choc. afternoon tea is included each day in the late afternoon a nice surprise, if you have the room in your belly from all the other gastronimic delights Ubud has to offer. We had dinner here on night 1 as we arrived late, and this was affordable, fresh and tasty also.
The service, was wonderful. Always smiling, polite staff who take the time and effort to remember your name and go out of their way to greet you and welcome you from arrival to departure.
We would reccomend this location, and stay here again in the future.
