We have stayed at the Alam group hotels several times and keep returning, because they are such beautifully authentic Balinese. The rooms are large, the outside bathrooms so great, and the grounds so beautiful. Unless you have been to this type of hotel, it is hard to describe. The rooms are like small bungalows, with hand carved Balinese furniture. The staff could not be nicer and very helpful. The people of Bali are generally so friendly and they make visitors feel so welcome. The view over the rice field from our porch, with a sofa and a day bed was so beautiful that we spent a lot of time there. The hotel has a small pool, which was a very relaxing place to hang out. The breakfast that is provided with your room is great and afternoon tea is also available. There is a great, new little Balinese restaurant across the road form the hotel and the famous Lake Leke restaurant is in walking distance. One can walk to Ubud through the monkey forest ( a bit of a walk) or the hotel van will take you and pick you up when you call. We booked over Nyepi, the new year's day of silence, when the entire island, even the international airport is shut down. It means staying on the hotel grounds and ordering food ahead, but we enjoyed the day very much. The evening before was great, as there were parades in every neighborhood of spectacular constructions of evil characters that were marched along the streets with music and then burned at the end of their runs. A tip for a great driver: we have always used Mr. Eka (email@example.com). The hotel will contact him for you or you can email. He picks us up at the airport and has taken us all over the island on different trips. His prices are very reasonable and he speaks good English.
