Stayed for five nights in upstairs Gnagga room. Booked this due to having a semi private pool, which is shared with the downstairs unit, but if you are super lucky like us, you will get it all to yourself. We felt spoilt and privileged to stay in such a beautiful place. Upon entering the room we were overwhelmed by its beauty and exquisite furnishings. I feel it is one of the few places left in traditional Balinese style.
The open air bathroom has a bathtub, one hot shower and one separate cold shower. Outside veranda has "his and hers" daybeds, a table with chairs, great for breakfast and views over the rice fields. The King size bed is right next to a window, which allows the breeze to cool down the room at night, without the need of having to run the air conditioning. The mattress is a bit worn out and we feel is in need of a replacement.
We had our breakfast most days in the Gazebo by the pool. Breakfast choices are good and plentiful, everything is presented with utmost care, attention to detail and tasty. We forgot to order the black rice pudding... definitely a reason to come back.
The staff goes the extra mile making sure our stay was hassle free. My husband forgot his glasses at a warung at Jatiluwih rice fields. Dewa, our driver, went back the next day in his private car to get the glasses. This is service beyond expectations and we really appreciated the effort of the hotel, which went into recovering the glasses. We booked the rice field tour with Alam Shanti reception staff and basically the tour was tailor made for what we wanted to see. Dewa, our fantastic driver, was very entertaining, yet professional at the same time. Highly recommend his service. Alam Shanti offers free shuttle services into Ubud until 9.30pm. We used this service a lot, but due to horrific traffic conditions in Ubud, it is quicker to walk through Monkey Forrest.
We used the Spa for a back massage and a foot massage. It was ok, but we did not rush back for more. Massage staff should not take mobile phone calls during treatment...-
We had all our meals at either Café Wayan or Lake Leke restaurant, which are part of the Alam Group. All meals (three vego choices) were delicious. It would be great to add a few more vegetarian dishes to the menu.
Alam Shanti is a very peaceful place and is highly recommended for a spoilt and relaxing holiday. Thank you for having us.
