We spent two nights here and were positively blown over by the quality and unusual nature of our experience. We've been staying in a $150/night resort in Sanur, which is lovely, so when we saw the Gerhana Sari 2 with its 9.5-plus rating, and only costing $24 per night (no a/c), we thought, "Can't be true!" We took a shot anyway and. . . it's perfect for what it is, which is a small, family-run, quiet, and peaceful collection of 6 small bungalows off of busy Monkey Forest Road in Ubud. Our room featured a private front porch with comfortable lounge, at which our home-cooked breakfast was served promptly in the morning. (The staff always knew somehow when we arose in the morning, and quietly visited us to collect our breakfast order.) The bathroom facilities were very simple but private, and one of the unexpected delights was a lovely outdoors shower--it was so liberating to shower in an open space!
When we arrived, Wisnu, the owner's son, greeted us personally and by name--always a lovely touch. Wisnu generously shared his local knowledge of local attractions and, at the end of our stay, booked us a reliable taxi driver for our return to Sanur--while we ate luxuriously at the nearby Three Monkeys Café.
No A/C proved to be no problem! Ubud is quite cool at night, so we always took a pre-bedtime shower and bunked down under a gently turning ceiling fan. . . Lovely! We'll be back!
