Hats of to the visionaries behind Umajati Retreat -- a place to relax, rejuvenate, eat well and set off through the nearby rice fields, to temples, markets and the fine restaurants and cafes of Ubud.
What Jean and William have done is fuse their extensive love and knowledge of Balinese culture and traditions with their commitment to the environment and the economic development of their staff and the local community into the ultimate traveler's haven. (To understand more about their values and work, please visit http://www.threadsoflife.com/).
The facility, gardens, food and service are beyond elegant -- exquisitely tasteful, immaculately clean, simple and healthy fare -- all combine to make it challenging to leave the retreat!
My wife and I will cherish our four nights there last August and look forward to our next trip back!
