Found this hotel after looking for a nice hotel with excellent view of paddy field plus a reasonable rate. Aniniraka has all that I was looking for. The room is spacious and well kept. The view from every room is the best that I have come across compared to my previous hotel that I stayed in during my last 2 visits to Ubud. It is so peaceful here, wellI am wiritng this from the comfort of my hotel room with free internet connection which is considered a luxury in Bali where most hotels would charge customers for such service.
The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool and an outdoor jacuzzi, also facing paddy field. Next to the pool is a duplex unit that is perfect for a family unit...it is as if the pool is a private pool for the duplex unit. I will come back with my children soon.
Aniniraka was a great hotel. Room was huge, well airconditioned and had an outdoor bathroom which was really nice. The pool was very pretty and was a lovely ending to a hot walk back from centre of ubud. The location is a little far out of the centre of Ubud (and we are pretty voracious walkers), mainly an issue if you have been walking all day and then come back before dinner and need to go back to main part for dinner. Transport is cheap and easy to obtain, Full Supermarket very close by. good service except for receiving our 7am wakeup call at 1.20am and not receiving another at 7am, however, I think that was an english language issue, they were very eager to please and helpful. Ubud generally is a lovely place, will definately return. I highly recommend the Banyan Tree Bike tour which you can book through the hotel. surrounds of hotel were beautiful and the sounds of frogs, roosters and crickets were lovely reminders of being close the nature.
