We stayed at Cendana for the fourth time last September, bringing six friends, some new to Bali. All really liked the place.
The trick with Cendana is that it's on a flag lot just off Ubud's main drag, Monkey Forest Road. The rooms nearest the road get nightclub music/racket at night, but mostly they're pretty quiet, and adjacent to rice paddies. So in the morning you feel like you're in the countryside--aided by the lavishly landscaped grounds, the restaurant in back, and the two big pools. But a five minute walk to Monkey Forest Road takes you into the thick of things, just 10 minutes' walk or so from the town's central market and gamelan performance venues.
The rooms are outfitted for Indonesian luxury more than Western luxury, though they do have Western toilets and baths. There's lots of room to spread out and spacious verandas overlooking the rice paddies. And the AC is quiet and effective.
We've voted with our feet, returning here time after time because even though Pertiwi is even nicer, that's a lot more expensive. For us this is a great value proposition.
And of course it has free Internet. And very nice free breakfasts, including both Balinese and Western food at the buffet.
