I originally booked into Biyukukung for 7 nights at the start of my three week stay in Ubud. After two nights I extended for my whole stay. So why did I love Bikukukung? The location is amazing. It's a very short walk to shops and restaurants along Hanoman street as well as a short walk to the Yoga barn. (Note: On Google maps it is shown in the wrong location. See my photos for actual location). The great thing about the location, is that once you enter the hotel, you feel like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle. It's set amongst the rice paddies, of which every room has a view. You go to the sleep to the sound of frogs chirping and wake up to birds chirping and roosters crowing. So lovely. There are also two beautiful pools and the grounds are kept immaculately.
I got upgraded to a Deluxe room on the second floor. It was spacious, clean and had a big balcony that looked over the rice paddies. I would wake up and open the curtains and look out at the beautiful view form my bed. When I asked to stay longer, they gave me the upgrade for my whole stay. I did get to see one of the standard rooms and it was fine. The bathroom a little old, but it looks like they are slowly upgrading all the rooms at the moment anyway.
The staff were so lovely. Nothing was any trouble and it was great having the complementary shuttle. They would only take you so far and then after that you would have to pay extra, but I found it was pretty reasonable. Although I think comparatively with Australia, shorter distances in a taxi in Bali are quite expensive. You only get good value for longer distances.
Breakfast was just ok, but fine considering the price I was paying (got the bet price through Agoda).
One of the best things for me too, as a solo female traveller, was that I felt incredibly safe there. Also met quite a few other single travellers. This may or may not be something that makes you comfortable, but there are security cameras around the grounds, leading down the paths to rooms etc. I actually quite liked this as it made me feel very secure. Don't worry, they aren't in your rooms.
I would highly recommend Biyukukung and will definitely stay again when I'm back in Ubud.
