I have seen many lovely villas in Ubud, but for me, this is one of the top choices in the area for a comfortable, eco-friendly, and safe stay. I recently spent the night with a group of friends from the US. This villa is built in a lovely "normal" neighborhood, in a very sustainable way, and the villa has good eco friendly practices such as providing water from the large refillable bottles instead of single use bottles. The large house itself has plenty of wood and greenery, a large screen tv, large bedrooms with antiques everywhere, a huge kitchen, lovely pool overlooking the jungle, and most importantly to me...cozy seating for a large gathering that is not in the sun! Also, the living room can be open or closed, and that is a huge thing because many villas are only in the "open" style which lends itself to lots of bugs and things...
The staff are super friendly, obviously love their jobs and are very confident in their competence...(not the obsequiousness you sometimes see in other villas) . Plus, the breakfast here was better than any restaurant in Ubud... At night we had a special dance and music performance with young Balinese and that was super sweet.
Also, there is no fitness center, but the Ubud Ftiness center is right at the end of the street, about a 5 minute walk away.
