I had the stay of a lifetime at the Ubud Aura, but this was not because of the hotel and the facilities, but because of the fantastic people I met.
On the plus side - the location is great, especially if you are doing courses at the Yoga Barn. I had a deluxe room and I really enjoyed my private balcony (not all deluxe rooms have one) a simple but well appointed bathroom, a great bed and the wifi was good, though patchy at times) Breakfast is simple and situated at a communal table where you get to meet the other people staying. The service is always friendly, but can be a bit slow - and the staff are very helpful and really friendly The pool, though not huge, is great. I had two of the best massages at the spa while I was there.
On the not so great side, the towels and sheets are a bit thin, the toiletries provided are adequate, the wifi does cut out at times and there is a bit of a lack of attention to detail with the cleaning at times.
I said in the title that this place isn't for everybody. If you're looking for up market, a lot of privacy or solitude, you're probably not going to find it here. Good for the single, alternative traveller who is happy to connect with like minded souls.
