I didn't expect that the resort was very far from central Ubud. We reached the area by a rented motor bike, and it took us about 45 minutes to an hour to reach the hotel.
We stayed in Padma villa, a one bed-room villa with a separate kitchenette. The room is very spacious with a bath tub, a toilet, indoor shower, and an outdoor shower. Overall the bathroom can benefit from a bit of refurbishment and make over, as some areas are already dilapidated (bathroom ceiling, some tiles in the verandah, outdoor furnitures).
We tried the Indonesian breakfast, ie fried noodles and noodle soup. The noodle soup tasted like from an instant noodle package, so we were not very impressed with that. Fried noodles are too salty for our taste. Coffee is also average.
The hotel provides shuttle bus service to the central Ubud. If you're looking for a quiet holiday, this is the place to be. Otherwise, you may need to consider other places closer to the central Ubud.
