Located in the village, deep into a village to be exact, where every place you see is the green of rice field, local temple and local houses with its local dogs.. I arrived early and was greeted with a friendly but polite villa coordinator, Yogi, to inform me of the 'rules' which include diner last order is 8pm for the selected in house food, which has only 4 selected items for the whole month..and spa last booking is at 5pm as they closed at 6pm..other info is the free shuttle service to ubud main area, drop off ( 10am and 5pm ) and pick up ( 5.30pm and 10pm ) at The Ubud Palace. As i was early and my room is not ready yet so i decided to go sight seeing aournd Ubud area and that was the best thing i did because once i'm in the hotel, i was captivated! My room is the best so far as it was in the front, facing the petite pool with a terrace and chairs and a huge Balinese sitting area next to it. The bed has cover and very comfortable, with a side table and lamp which is not so good for reading. No TV, very quiet during night time. I brought my laptop etc but was spelled by the quietness of the area and decided to just go with it.. The huge bath tub takes ages to fill so i decided to stop trying the first night. the shower was very hot which is very good. No AC but the fan keeps the room cool enough.. it was a divine evening with only cricket and other insect sounds around the area. i feel comfortable and safe being in the hotel.. Day time is even more amazing! My breakfast, ordered the day before, came exactly at the time and type of omelette as requested. As most guest are out so i have the pool by myself, be in and out of the pool and order food and drink as i wish.. the staff was always around and so polite and friendly at the same time. the food was tasty, i was surprise knowing that a local man, who look after his cattle when he is not working at the hotel, is the one who made the perfect salad taste i had so far.. exact dressing pour into it to make a tasty salad and the club sandwich, perfect! the morning walk on saturday at 8-9.30am was tiring for the legs but refreshing for your eyes as you only see the green of the rice field as far as your eyes can see.. beautiful!! will definitely do it again when i'm there.
it was a total relaxing moment with do nothing but just being present with the place.
