I was a little nervous about coming here, as i knew it was a new place, and i wasn't able to read too much input on the place beforehand. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised...and then some.
The staff here was over the top friendly, going out of their way to make sure we were always having the best day possible. Whether it was helping us plan the cheapest/easiest transport, booking later accommodations elsewhere, or fun attractions/activities nearby- they were on it. Every day we got back from shopping around town, they'd always ask what we got, did we have fun, where'd we eat, what did we like the most, etc etc. Never pushy, never with an agenda, just genuinely happy and nice people.
My friend had bad food poisoning on our last day there, so I asked if i could get her breakfast in a take-away container to take up to the room. They told me not to worry, and brought it up to her on a room service tray themselves. They also picked up the tray almost immediately after we set it in the hallway, which was nice considering that's always bound to attract lots of creepy crawly critters. For the rest of the day, any time i came or went, they would ask me how my friend was doing, was there anything they could do, etc. i thought it was really sweet. and even just nice that they remembered.
Beyond the staff, the hotel and rooms are also really nice. i saw some people write about not having toiletries during their stay, which wasn't an issue for us. they must've just still been in the beginning phases then or something, i'm not sure, but they had everything. The rooms were clean, spacious, and also have a good-sized patio which was nice. the one thing the room didn't have was cups! sounds random, but sometimes it's nice to have a drink once you get home, ya know. we just had to resort to straight from the bottle. real classy.
the location of the property was excellent. it was right in the middle of the best strip of shopping, and only a few hundred meters from the entrance of monkey forest (beware of those sneaky little thieving creatures). there were TONS of really good restaurants, cafes, and bars within short walking distance. but the best part about it is that although it's right in the main mix of things, it's not loud at all once you're in your room and trying to sleep, relax, whatever. and the garden is gorgeous, giving it a really serene, peaceful vibe.
I definitely recommend staying here if you come to Ubud. The staff is easily the friendlies of all the places i've stayed in Indonesia so far.
