This is 2nd place we stayed in Ubud, I much prefer this place to the last one.
We got a complimentary 30 min massage which was lovely, also took the free rice paddy walk - which I highly recommend. The guide works at the hotel and the paddies are just behind the hotel. It's a beautiful and interesting walk explaining how the fields work.
the bathrooms were clean and did not smell of sewer. It has a open outdoor bathroom.
The rooms had air con but we didn't always use it. The bed upstairs had a lovely mosquito net over it.
The free shuttle is brilliant, they will drop you anywhere in town and pick you up anywhere at any time. This was much better than a scheduled shuttle with only one stop like a lot of other hotels. We would get dropped off for dinner then ask the restaurant to call and get them to pick us up.
We are a family with young kids and there were other families staying here to share the pool and fun with.
Free breakfast which was delicious and a variety of Indonesian, American and European menu.
Lovely people that work here.
The location is great as its about a 20 min walk out of town ( we always caught bus due to kids), there are enough restaurants within 5 minutes for dinner when you couldn't be bothered with going to Ubud centre. There is Warung Mendez for Balinese, a Indian restaurant, famous Sari Organik and Alchemy for juices, salads. Also Kue bakery. There is also a great place next to Warung Mendez for car hire/taxi and 80,000 ($8 usd) massages! There is no need to go to town :)
We had room Tunjung 1- for a family. Queen bed downstairs for kids, queen bed upstairs and day bed. Close to main pool, no private pool ( which we didn't want). Great for a family of 4/5.
