Firstly, please disregard the older posts about this hotel as it has completely been revamped since the new management came in. In fact, when we first arrived we assumed that the hotel must've been brand new. Throughout our 4 night stay staff were working on landscaping and improving their amenities in general.
The hotel itself is small. There are 6 or so villas some that have two suites in them and I think others that are designed for families or large groups. We stayed in one of the upstairs suites which had a wicked balcony. Staff even lit a citronella coil every night to keep the mosquitoes at bay :) The villas encircle a nice garden (which will only get better with age) and a wicked pool.
Our room, 106, was large. We had lots of space, the bed was big enough for two, and the bathroom was also HUGE. There was lots of space to put our things, drawers, wardrobe, lots of counter space in the bathroom, etc. The shower was slightly below average. The water pressure was low and you had to run it for ten minutes before any hot water came out. Overall I was happy with the room but there were a few things lacking that could have greatly improved the overall comfort of this space:
1) Indoor slippers. Everything is tile and slippers would have kept my feet warm :)
2) Curtains. The windows are small but we had a light bulb shining right outside of our window which lit up the room at night. This particular villa also got a lot of morning sun which made sleeping in difficult.
3) A mat for the door. We often had wet, muddy feet (rainy season) and it would be nice to wipe our feet.
4) A phone or even a clock.
5) There was no TV...I didn't care. It looks like they might hook them up soon though.
6) A couple extra bath towels. You only get 2.
The best thing this hotel has going for it is its service and restaurant. The staff and so friendly and they take your comfort to heart. They'll cater to anything you want and adapt to your needs. They also arranged tours for us, gave us umbrellas, and extra towels when we needed them. Breakfast was amazing. You have options for breakfast! You get a fresh fruit juice, tea/coffee, and the either a traditional meal or a more western style meal: toast, egg&sausages/pancakes. Yummy!!! This breakfast kept me going until supper time each day. Also, the dinner is worth eating here too!
Overall, I would stay here again. $50/night (including breakfast) is, in my opinion, a bargain for Ubud.
