Friendly and efficient staff, convenient and reliable airport pickup and delivery, great breakfasts and generally good quality room service food. Rooms were a great size, with a huge super duper king size bed, good aircon and the usual other amenities such as TV, barfridge etc. Clean bottled water was provided daily at very low cost. We had absolutely no trouble with mosquitos even though we went during the wet season. Despite the rather rundown appearance of the villages on the approach journey, the hotel is a lovely contrast at the end of a quiet laneway. The location is beautiful and secluded, with lovely grounds and a view from the very pleasant plunge pool over jungle and a river canyon. Paradise! An important point is that the villas are located about 8kms outside the main Ubud centre, and there are no normal quality restaurants or bars nearby. A free daily shuttle to Ubud is available at 10am returning 2.30pm, but for all other times, taxis are the usual mode of transport unless you are fit and/or brave and hire a bike or motorbike. Cost of a taxi to Ubud is about AUD5 one way and this can be put on your room account if the villa staff do the driving. The villa will also arrange whole or part day car and driver for ranging further afield (about AUD60 for a full day) and any package tours that you choose. Thoroughly recommend full day trip to volcano, hot springs and paddy fields. There are a couple of small, very basic stores for some essentials in the village nearby and on one occasion, we plucked up the courage to have a meal at one of the very cheap roadside cafes (Warung) on the main road a shortish walk from the villas. One highlight was attending a procession (part of one of the many local religious festivals). It was great to see the crowds of locals all gathering to participate, with drums and gamelin and cymbals. If we came again, we would probably be more adventurous about exploring the local village and its people.
