Puri Manik provides a Balinese touch and is nicely different from an aesthetic point of view. Sadly, some wooden furnitures and doors look creaky and old and they require woodworking or lacquer. Nevertheless, the rooms are averagely-well furnished with noteable items like air conditioner, tv, kettle, mini bar, towels, glasses, and a mosquito repellant device. In addition, the room is sufficiently large and able to fit groups of 3 or 4 ppl. The toilet however is rather gloomy in my opinion and the floor tiles were abit dirty. Buffet-style breakfast is provided ( included in room charges ) from 8-11 A.M. Not much choices but the food and service is acceptable.
Besides that, there is also a swimming pool,free wifi and a mini cyber cafe. The computers are old but good enough for simple web surfing. Last but not least,
Puri Manik is quite well placed in Ubud and is within walking distance to several convenience shops, car rental service, money exchanger, and a
variety of restaurants including the famous 'Dirty Duck'.
Overal opinion : Above-OK value for budget tourists. The cottages certainly has had better days.More
