We had a wonderful stay here. The room (Sita) was delightful with a ceiling fan (not very effective) and a stand alone fan (much needed). As other reviewers have noted, it can remain very warm at nights here, however, we found the fan was enough - actually rather nice to do without the air-con. Creepy crawlies were also not a problem (apart from a few ants), despite us leaving the balcony doors open. The bed was comfy and the bathroom lovely (although the water pressure is a bit low).
The pool was lovely and relaxing but the restaurant was only OK. I agree with another reviewer about the tea - I asked for Earl Grey but got...something else! We arranged to climb Mt Batur through the hotel which requires you leaving at 2.30am! The hotel told us they would provide a packed-breakfast which turned out to be tofu sandwiches made with dried out bread!! Disgusting & went straight in the bin (fortunately we'd bought some snacks to help us up the mountain). However, we did have a nice curry for lunch on our first day here.
The staff were very friendly & helpful (especially calling the airport everyday for us trying to discover if my suitcase had turned up). However, don't buy the 'natural' shampoos/conditioners at reception as they are not very good at cleaning and moisturising your hair - however eco-friendly they are!
We hired a bike from the shop at the end of the road so never had to 'endure' the walk through the monkey forest on the way back from Ubud!
Overall a lovely stay.
