From 5-10 October 2009 we had an invitation from Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2009 and chose Vila Pratiwi, a 3-bedrooms villa @ Gayatri villa complex-Sayan Ubud for our stay. We’re the group of 4 adults and 3 kids age 6-11 and found Gayatri was a perfect choice for us.
Compare to other villas surround Ubud, Gayatri was the best for location, rate and facilities-wise. The location was not too far from the Ubud center, the rate was within budget and the facilities were awesome. The rate was inclusive breakfast for 7 of us, transfer from the airport and daily transfer to the Ubud center.
Pratiwi was a nice villa with luscious bushes, succulent trees surrounding the area and along the nice line path. The pool was very big and all rooms were clean and comfy. Breakfast was prepared and cooked in our kitchen. The view from the balcony was breath-taking; we could feel the breeze, saw the amazing valley, and the landscape of coconut trees and mountains. The staffs were friendly and helpful. We’re treated as our second home; even they picked fresh coconuts from the neighborhood garden for our tasty refreshment!
If you want to take a leisure walk to the village, please ask one of the staff to be your guide because stray dogs might be annoying and barking to you all the time. The staff can bring you down to the Ayung river or golden rice fields, even to the nearby Hindu ceremonies!
Things that could improve for Gayatri are perhaps the pillow qualities. We expected the four-star hotels standard and the bed in the mainroom should be one king-size bed instead of two single beds combined into one! Some spots on the bathroom mirror was also a minor. Aside from those, everything is satisfying.
Sure we’ll consider coming back again to Gayatri and trying the other villas.
