Stayed at the Alam Shanti in Ubud as part of our honeymoon trip to Bali in November 2011
It's a small, very charming guesthouse made up of a few old colonial houses that have been converted to upstairs/downstairs suites.
We had the Shindu room and were blown away buy how pretty it was. Big chunky, antique furniture, a stunning outdoor bathroom and a beautiful four poster bed. All this set in stunning gardens with geckos running around the place.
The outside bathroom was amazing and definitely an experience. My wife was joined in the shower by a rather friendly frog one morning - something both he and my other half would never forget!
The service at the Alam Shanti is first rate and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
The hotel is a 5 minute stroll from the Monkey Forest which is a great place to sit and watch the little critters monkeying around! Ubud town (village?!) itself is just a short walk to the other side of the forest.
Afternoon tea on our terrace was lovely and the breakfasts were tasty and plentiful.
If you get a chance, try the cooking lesson at the Laka Leke restaurant - it's a great way to spend a few hours in the afternoon and the food was delicious.
This place has to be the loveliest hotel we've ever stayed at and was the perfect place for us to visit on our honeymoon.
If you get the chance to stay here, I can thoroughly recommend it. You will not be disappointed!!
