This review is long overdue. Stayed in the Tea House at Kebun Indah for 4 nights in March 2012. The hotel is located on a main road in Ubud. There are several restaurants and shops located within a short walk of the hotel. The Monkey Forrest is about a 15 minute walk away and the Palace and market are about a 30 minute walk (or very short cab ride).
Even though Kebun Indah is located on the main road, it could not have been more peaceful. From the small parking area in front, you will walk down a small path through a rice field for about 200 meters to reach the reception area. There, all the sounds of busses and moterbikes will be lost and you'll hear the lovely sounds of the forrest. The hotel is a group of 4 or 5 buildings of various sizes built into the side of a hill, ultimately leading to a nice pool area and small river.
The Tea House was a great option for a couple and a fantastic value. There is a nice front porch sitting area and a spacious main room with ornate four posted bed. The bathroom is actually outside, but very private, and contains a koi pond. One of the most unique elements of any hotel I've ever been to. There is no air conditioning, but we found the temperatures quite comfortable with a fan at night.
The staff was fantastic and very attentive. Breakfast is made to order and delivered to your table every morning. The staff will also provide complimentary tea, coffee and snacks in the afternoon. They arranged tours and a driver to the airport for us as well.
Overall, a great choice for Ubud. Highly recommend!
