“Upgrade and enjoy this wonderful place”
Reviewed January 15, 2009

Set just off the non-descript road into Ubud, the Putri Ayu was wonderfully situated amongst the paddy fields. The staff were extremely friendly. The cottages were nicely laid out, business was good and the place expanding, with new ‘posh’ villas being built.
Our room was not ready; in over exuberance one of the staff showed us some of the deluxe rooms on the upper floors, with wooden floors and 4 poster beds; they were exquisite. We were then told ours was on the ground floor and not quite as nice. The deluxe were apparently all booked.
What we ended up with would have been considered wonderful, had we not seen the ‘Deluxe Upper Wood Bedrooms’. $60US was not cheap, but far better value than Kuta accommodation. If you stay – upgrade. The evening meal at the Putri Ayu tasted fantastic and was better than any of the meals we had in restaurants in the town (village).
Of particular note: The Putri Ayu offers a free pick up and drop off in Ubud. The town starts less than 1km away, but runs for another km along 2 parallel streets separated by a river. The transport service was very dependable (we rang for pick up several times from restaurants down town).
We move by taxi from foul Kuta and really enjoyed the relatively laid back attitude in Ubud. We really liked the Putri Ayu. It is a good place to stay for 3 days and we rated it as the best of 6 places we stayed in Bali.
Some things we did in Ubud:
Walk out the back of the complex 400m to the monkey sanctuary, which the whole family loved.
Take the Campuhan Ridge Walk and stop on route at an amazing cafe on stilts (just whish I could remember the name). The walk takes 2 hours through paddy fields so green it looks unreal.
The Bumbu restaurant. A pretty place in a courtyard, with little huts for eating around the water gardens (if the ants don’t get you). Food was OK. 6 out of 10.
Kafe Wayan – Excellent western laid back coffee / food place, that we could not fault. It was even non smoking! Full of back packers, but a great place to spend an hour or 2.
The market was OK and worth a look around.
We did not go White Water rafting, but others we met seemed to enjoy the experience.

We were booked for 4 nights but checked out after 2 days. The property was supposedly in town but not really within walking distance. The shuttle service often was not available as the van was being used by the hotel's owner, thus resulting in a need to pay a taxi every time we needed to go into to town. The rooms were large and clean- no complaints there. It seemed odd as it seemed we were the only people staying there. The staff tried to respond to requests but did not understand what was desired. For example, we asked for extra blankets to be delivered to the two rooms but all extra blankets were dropped in one room. The breakfast was quite tasty but you'll need to go into town for all other meals. A rather sterile, benign property all in all.

  • Liked — Large clean rooms
  • Disliked — Distance from town without available shuttle
