So glad we discovered this gem!!
I was convinced (by photos on this website & good communications rec'd from the owner) Chai T was going to be a favourite place to stay, where expectations would not be disappointed. This villa is a true gem, we were not let down.
I differ to reviews that say this is basic accomodation, we thought is was magic, a blended contemporary and traditional design with simple decor & bold colours, totally relaxing, the open/outdoor living we embraced and loved that it allowed you to chill out completely, and we mean completely. The beds were great for sleeping on, upstairs held breathtaking views over the pool through the coconut trees out to the rice paddies, it was picture perfect.
We were two adults & a four year old, we wished we had brought along extra family so they could enjoy what we felt. It's perfect for children, safe, the fish pond lovely & frogs who reside that are gorgeous. We saw fabulous surprises of nature & creatures within the wider villa grounds not typical at resort accomodations. Our son sought this with eagerness. Adventuring through the rice paddies idyllic.
The staff Wayan, Adil, Cuk & the ladies who service the villas daily are amazing. Just ask & they are so willing to assist, so friendly. The driver Putu will take you anywhere, he is fabulous company. We organised a motorbike through the staff, that was the best for exploring Ubud independently & getting to restaurants etc, it was completely safe, we took our four year old everywhere. You just do it how everyone else does in Asia!
The ladies made the yummiest banana pancakes with fresh fruit, we didn't even try any of the omlete options as the pancakes were to die for. Our son wanted to try drinking out of a coconut, which the staff made his day by climbing the tree to get some and cut them open for us. They made our stay sta
We stocked the fridge with our own supplies for lunches & snacks from Coco supermarket. Dining in Ubud is sensational - we recommend Taco Casa & Grill, Siam Sally, Kafe to name a few. The drinking water supply provided in the water cooler dispenser is safe (everywhere else you stay you should drink from sealed bottles, but here don't be concerned as this water is completely safe).
The swimming pool is awesome, we did lengths every morning, it's deep for fun & dives etc, the shallow pool perfect for kids play.
We stayed 7 nights, so wished was more!! We "HIGHLY" recommend Chai T, our son still talks about this place
