Perched precariously on the hillside, our quiet little villa provided respite from the business end of Ubud (centre). Walking down to the room through tiny walkways and beautiful gardens was peaceful, they were well maintained and quirky (faces in the stones).
You can see this was "the" place to stay in the 80's and the hotel is in desperate need of some renovations, a bit of paint to start with would really lift the place. In fact, while having a swim with my husband we talked about how great this place could be with a small investment and a bit of effort.
The poolside lounges need to go, cracked and broken plastic do nothing for relaxation, and the pool tiles could probably use a little scrubbing. The view from the pool was the same as from the rooms - stunning.
The rooms were very large, and easily accommodated our family of three with ease. The double bed mattress was lumpy at best. The bathroom door was quaint, but beyond that was a bathroom that could really use .
The views though were magnificent, sitting on the large verandahs overlooking the river and rice terraces were what made this stay worth it. I would never tire of these views and thats what you pay for.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and being the only guests in this large establishment meant they were extremely attentive. They arranged a hire car for us when we left at a very good price, and were always on time using the free shuttle into the main centre.
I really fell in love with this hotel, and sincerely hope that a bit of money is spent to get it back to its former glory.
