I stayed at Alam Shanti with my parents and my sister during November of 2010.
The grounds were beautiful, and one of our rooms (we had two rooms) looked out onto the green rice paddies, just a gorgeous view.
My parents' room had a private pool that we were all able to use as a family. It was amazing to have a private space without worrying about people being loud or splashing around us. Very relaxing.
The grounds were kept very clean, and the walkways through the vegetation had a very spiritual, serene feeling. My favorite thing about the walk over to my parents' room in the mornings was the water lilies in the pond that opened up in the morning. They were beautiful to walk through, all different colors.
The breakfast at Alam Shanti is also great, there are lots of choices and they also offer a tea service in the afternoon. They almost always served cake with the tea, also very good.
If I were rating the room that my parents stayed in, I would have given this hotel 5 stars out of 5. Their room was beautiful, high ceilings, a beautiful balcony, beautiful woodworking and linens and the view. The bathroom was open concept so you could feel a breeze as you were showering, looking out onto the rice paddies, but still very private. I wouldn't have been concerned about people seeing me in the washroom at all. There was also a bathtub in the open concept washroom that I used once, and it was nice as well. A very calming, peaceful place.
The room that my sister and I stayed in, however, wasn't near as amazing as my parents' room. Might have just been the luck of the draw, but it was unfortunate. Our room was all marble and had a little shared area (patio sort of) outside, with a water dispenser and a fridge. There was a bathtub in our bathroom, but no working shower, very inconvenient.
There was a queen and a sofa (day) bed in our room, I had to sleep on the day bed and it wasn't very comfortable, but it was bearable. Our room was kept very clean throughout our stay.
Even though our room wasn't perfect, our stay was amazing, and I would definitely return if I had the opportunity to visit Ubud again.
