We spent 3 nights at Puri Lumbung and found it an unusual and enjoyable experience. The setting, in the hills among the rice fields with flowers and ponds everywhere, was gorgeous. With only two full days at our disposal, we managed to do 7 activities. Putu, our guide for two treks, was knowledgeable and a fascinating person, The private cooking lesson was a high point, and Crista was a brilliant teacher! After 'helping' to cook a delicious four-course meal of our own choosing, we were served it at the restaurant for our dinner. We tried to eat Indonesian dishes all the time and found the food very good. We would recommend the Indonesian breakfast rather than the continental. The atmosphere was special, with a partnership with the local people which included Balinese dancing classes for the children of the village as well as hotel and restaurant training for the young people. We had great massages and a lovely session learning to play the bamboo galengan instruments. Only two criticisms concerning the room. The first was that instead of a double bed we had twin beds pushed together with the bedding tightly tucked in between them. And the second is that they had put everything in the room to make early morning coffee or tea except a hot water kettle. They would bring you hot water, but as the distances are relatively long and there is no phone in the room it was a llittle complicated. On the other hand, although we had to pay for a Wifi connection, it worked perfectly and it was only £3 for 24 hours. We would definitely go back and try some of the other enticing activity offers.
