It's been six weeks since I left the Melati Cottages and I can't wait to return someday. I was in Ubud as part of a group studying shadow puppetry and mask carving, and we used Melati as our "home" for four weeks. The rooms, the GROUNDs, the staff...the wonderful banana pancakes...all made for a wonderful experience. Our room, number 4, was my favorite of all that I saw. Our veranda was perfect for early morning or late afternoon reading...the surrounding grounds were lush and groomed daily. The bathrooms, while older, were fine and clean, as was everything. I would like better lighting in both the main room and the bathroom, however, it was adequate. The daily breakfast was healthy and tasty. I loved the omelets and banana pancakes...and the early coffee was a welcome treat. The best thing abuot Melati is the staff ...it truly is a family and they treat each guest as a cherished family member. And if you go, be sure to ask for Gedur as your driver and let him plan your day...you will be in for a treat! After leaving Melati, I stayed a week at another MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE property in Ubud, but preferred the Melati in every aspect!
