Nestled amongst lush mountains north of Ubud this resort is amazing. The grounds are a mix of manicured gardens, native plants, and impressive stone carvings that look like they have been there forever. It is an oasis carved out of a hillside where quite often the only sound to be heard is the water rushing over the rapids on the Ayung River below. No expense was spared in constructing and furnishing the traditional Balinese-style buildings, which were decorated in and out with art and sculptures from the owner's personal collection. We were most impressed by the outstanding food and service provided by the restaurant. We felt like royalty having six waiters place our meals in front of us simultaneously - and we were a party of four! The complementary a la carte breakfasts were exceptional - a feast for the taste buds and a feast for the eyes (both in the presentation of the food and the tropical vista we gazed out over). But best of all were the happy, smiling, always eager to please, staff who at a ratio of 2-1 to guests seemed to anticipate our every need. Thank you!
