Widia met us at the bus stop when we arrived from Gili Air, via Padangbai and offered us his home stay. Normally we would decline and make our own way to find a place but there was something disarming about his manner that resonated with our intuition and we agreed to go take a look. We are most pleased we did because his personal service not only helped us out big time but it gave us an insight into the beautiful nature of the Bali people. He drove us to a department store to buy a replacement camera, to a tailor to mend a hand bag and picked us up some stationery when he was out and about. The bungalow that we had was perfect for us -even had a patio area with goldfish ponds where we could sit out in the am and pm to play cards etc. Breakfast was included and Widia put a flask of hot water on our table early every morning along with a jar of coffee and tea bags so that we could have as many cuos as we needed at no extra charge. He arranged a driver to take us out on a day tour at a very reasonable rate to see temples, volcanoes, lakes and coffee plantations. We were so impressed with the driver, Madi, that we got him to drive us up to Lovina when we departed Ubud. Widia also informed us about what was going on in Ubud at the time; information we might otherwise have missed and so we had a compete and wonderful time in Ubud, with many thanks to Widia.
Widia's wife, Ami, is a great masseuse at a great price so we had two massages each whiilst we were there.
