Stayed at Junjungan for 2 nights, 18-20 June 2012, with family (spouse & 2 young girls). This is a small but extremely cosy establishment. Stayed in a Deluxe Awan room, had twin beds (each was a super single) and an extra bed for my elder girl. Even with 3 beds in the room, there was still lots and lots of room left for my girls to run around. My girls (7 years and 3 years old) absolutely love the hotel. I was initially a little sceptical about how the girls would react to the hotel as they were used to staying in bigger hotels / resorts. But I wanted the kids to experience this countryside / natural environment, and I definitely did not regret this decision. My girls love love love the place. Every chance they get they'd sit out on the balcony to admire the paddy field and watch the ducks out in the field. It was beautiful.
The personal attention given by the staff was also another plus plus point. Like what most reviews mentioned, the staff made an effort to remember guests by name. They were also very good with my kids. My kids being hyper active and overly-friendly would walk around the hotel on their own and love to hang around the lobby area to chat with the staff, all of whom know the girls' names.
Food served at the hotel was fantastic. Portions were quite big by our standards, most of the time we felt that we were being overfed. Breakfast came with the room, of which we had to order the night before. Though it was not a buffet spread but an ala carte set, the selection was more than sufficient with a good variety of local and western spread. Their pancakes are incredibly large and delicious (love their banana chocolate pancakes). Our stay also came with daily complimentary tea, which was served anytime between 3pm to 6pm. Everyday they would serve something different. Tea was usually served at their restaurant. However on the day we had our tea, we had just came back from Ubud market with my youngest daughter asleep in my arms. The staff at the lobby saw that and immediately offered to serve us tea in our room as they understood the inconvenience of me and my husband having to take turns to go down to the restaurant to have our tea. Again a testimony of great personal service. One thing to note is that their food and beverages are all served freshly made, therefore there will always be a short waiting time. This is however not something that bothered us as the waiting just gave us more opportunities to admire and appreciate the relaxed and tranquil surroundings.
The hotel is a slight distance from Ubud town but with the hotel shuttle which is available upon request, it is not a problem at all. In fact we love the fact that the hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of all the action.
Only regret was that we did not stay longer in Ubud and Junjungan.Can't wait to go back.
