We booked Hibiscus House at THouse Kaja for two weeks. We walked down to T House Klod to use the swimming pool as it was much larger with a much bigger deck & garden around it. We felt like we were being glared at a little by other guests whose houses are right on the pool when our kids were playing at the pool. Hibiscus is a lovely house with the best view of the ricefields of all the houses I think. Lots of wood & glass, a natural house. I don't think T House would be as enjoyable if you were in one of the houses at the back (not on rice field). We had maintenance issues several times while were there but they were attended to quickly. Cleaning not up to scratch for me. Breakfast lovely. Ceiling fans & mozzie nets/coils worked fine for us - in Ubud you don't need aircon. There is ONE RESTAURANT within walking distance but it is inexpensive & great food - Tans Bistro, highly recommended. You can get dinner cooked in villa. As mentioned in other reviews, crawlies, skinks, small frog snakes are all here but will not bother you. The dogs, if you walk out of the villas to the road, might. They won't hurt you but they do bark, a lot & they will come up close to you.
Highlights: The almost constant sound of running water, the rice field view, watching fireflies over the ricefields at night, lovely ricefield walks, being surrounded by green.
Lows: After being in central Ubud for two weeks & able to walk everywhere, we disliked having to get transport to go anywhere other than to Tans Bistro to eat, intermittent hot water, leaky taps & sinks. Cats in the house at night loud meowing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Absolutely stunning 1-3 bedroom private villas in a traditional rice farming and carving village only 5 minutes from central Ubud. Daily maid and breakfast service included. Beautiful shared pool with ricefield views. Unlike many other Balinese complexes, the unique Bali T Houses offers visitors the chance to stay in an environmentally friendly and ecologically sustainable compound, which is also part of Balinese village life and culture. Therefore there is the opportunity for much interaction with the local people and animals, whom you will observe working in rice-fields and gardens, dogs, roosters, cows, chickens, and so on, as well as passing through the houses walkways and working around them during their daily routines. If you're looking for a serene villa miles from village life this is not the place. ... more less
