My wife and I have just stayed at the Wapa Di Ume Resort & Spa (formerly Waka Di Ume) for five nights. Unknown to the hotel we had planned the trip to celebrate my 50th birthday. Despite visiting Bali several times this was our first stay in Ubud. Upon arrival we were met by the hotel manager and key staff and it quickly became clear that this is one very special establishment. They had worked out from our details what was going on and made sure we were treated with the utmost care. The room was a Lanai Sweet overlooking the rice fields and pool areas at the rear of the resort. The room was huge with a separate shower and toilet area, a kind of over-sized studio apartment but in the luxury category. The bed was the largest four poster bed I have ever seen, it was draped with white mosquito netting and was super comfortable. The staff at this resort are incredible, everyone knew who we were and went out of their way to make us welcome and ensure every need was met. They succeeded at this with ease. The restaurant is clean and the service is excellent, you simply must try their home made papaya jam! Oh and they also do gluten free meals so my wife was very happy. The hotel has a shuttle service that runs between the hotel and Ubud palace every hour, it is free and very reliable so try it. The hotel offers incredible advice on tours, local drivers etc so please listen to them they really do know the area well. If you are looking for an exquisitely quiet holiday resort (only 21 rooms) and are not dependent on TV or radio (because there are none) then this is the place for you.
