We went to spend a week in Ubud with the family and we selected the Natura Resort. We took a deluxe villa with a private pool and couldn't have been happier. This is like being given your own little piece of paradise, there is a lovely view on the tropical forrest and some rice paddies on the distance but beyond the birds no one can peek at your room and the pool.
Very often the pictures you see from hotels are deceptive and you get disappointed. This is not the case here: I can attest that the official pictures are genuine, if this what you see is what you like, this is also what you'll get.
The staff, as all Balinese people, are super friendly and very accommodating.
There is one restaurant, with relatively limited choice of dishes but they are all excellent! Breakfast is "a la carte" as well but again excellent. It is not your typical 5-stars with buffet all day long but you will not regret eating there. We ordered there the famous smoked duck (slowly cooked for god knows how many hours) and it was just fantastic.
The hotel is relatively far from Ubud center but the hotel organise an hourly shuttle so you can get there easily and quickly. They are flexible enough to drop or pick you up along the way and not just at a fixed location at the center of Ubud.
A last note: although we went as family with a 8 years old kid, this is not really a place for very young kids, especially the deluxe room with pool: there is danger for small kid either to fall in the pool or fall from a wall at the end of the terrace.

Fourteen luxury villas designed by Bali's prominent local architect Popo Danes enhance the beauty of the site. Access is through the traditional village of Laplapan, just 3 km from the center of Ubud.
