This was my first time I stayed at Hotel Tjampuhan in Ubud and I stayed there in July 2012. This resort is amazing, a very good first category property! As soon as you walk in the view is absolutely breathtaking. It's a pleasure just to walk around the lush gardens, and the pools are so relaxing. You feel as though you're in a forest. My room was huge and beautiful, clean and had everything I needed; I have been provided with a comfortable king size bed although I booked a single room; ceiling fan, minifridge, a fresh fruit basket upon arrival, 2 free small bottles of water provided on a daily basis, no coffee facilities tho; a beautiful large balcony with armchairs and coffee table overlooking the forest, very relaxing and peaceful to just sit and read a book enjoying the sound of the river below. It did not have any TV, but I did not mind since I did not go there to see any TV shows. It was not the purpose of my trip. However, there is a TV room and free WiFi at the grounds anyway, also 4 pc with free internet access. If you hate steps (& you're not fit !) get a room closer to reception. My room was always made up after I returned from breakfast, which I took in the open air dining room, with great views of the gardens and surrounds. The buffet was o.k, nice omelettes individually cooked by an “egg man”, plus toast, jams, danish pastries, fresh fruit etc. etc. The waitresses seldom smiling and careless :-(, while the rest of the staff were very helpful and always friendly and smiling. Did not try the hotel restaurant as there are many in town.The gardens are very well kept and absolutely magnificent, it seriously is like a jungle palace with exotic flowers, trees, shrines, etc. There are two pools, a spa, a charming place with its curving steps and amazing carvings. I have had an amazing spa and 2.5 hrs Balinese massage treatment, my best ever. The location is amazing, seriously only a five minute walk into Ubud, although there is a shuttle bus running hourly to town, but one could walk the short distance in a few minutes anyway. Although there are not public transports, private minicabs are available for a very little price. Furthermore, while Ubud is not Kuta beach, it is still a loud town with lots of traffic, so being slightly outside the town is nice if you are seeking peace and quiet. If you want fluff, gloss and luxury, go elsewhere. If you want the real Balinese experience start here. I wish I'd stayed longer here and cut Kuta short!
