The hotel was pretty good, from location to the usual Bali friendliness n helpfulness and more.
We stayed at the super deluxe room at the back overlooking the garden. You could have your breakfast at the 'back' as well eventhough it was a la carte while the front main restaurant is buffet style. It has its pro-n-cons...
The breakfast at the back will be freshly prepared and it comes with yummy fresh fruit juice, either single or mixed fruits, simply delightful. However the single portion of the nasi/bami goreng is not really sufficient for a big eater and there won't be any 'refill'.
At the main restaurant in front, there is enough to go 2 or 3 rounds buttt..., the so called juices are all concentrate (they say) and rather sweet (so is it really concentrate you wonder).
The room was good, clean and spacious enough with on groundfloor terrace/'balcony'-doors opening into the garden. But with a chance of a garden-mouse entering the room, which happened to us. Not sure who was more shocked, the field-mouse or me...
As on groundflooor you can enter the room from 2 sides, the 'main' room-door and the terrace-doors, it can be a bit confusing which would be the main-entrance/door.
We are late risers and therefore requested a quiet area which was simply great at the back. However the housekeeping staff seem VERY eager to get their work done in the earlier part of the morning. So on our first morning I was awoken by a staff knocking on the terrace-doors many many times with a 'goodmorning'. As there was no reply from our end, the staff actually used his keys to open the terrace-doors and quickly closed/locked it again when he realised that the curtains were still closed...sigh... The best part was, that we actually have put a 'privacy'-sign on the main room-door !!
As pretty and soothing the gardens are, for me it doesn't give that typical rustic Ubud feeling when in the room overlooking the gardens. It gives more a feeling of staying in a chalet. However as soon as you sit for breakfast at the back, the scenery is so different.
Take note that the hotel premises is exactly between 2 roads actually, which is great as you can walk from the back to be in a more rustic environment.
Overall a good hotel if you don't look for that typical feeling/view while relaxing in the room. We recceed 2 other hotels which gave us a wayyy better rustic feeling and we simply fell in love at first sight with 1 of them. And after the encounter with and the field-mouse and the housekeeping staff on our very first evening and morning, we were on the verge of moving out and over.
We stayed put cos the staff were really very nice and it was supposed to be a relaxing birthday trip...
