THouse is located coviniently in the rural setting of Ubud. We walked to Ubud and it took us 30 minutes of an interesting march. Walking through the village and fields is a pure pleasure but one you get to the main road the real challenge begins as footways are very narrow and full of open holes to storm water channels. Taxi from /to Ubud 30,000 RP.
Accommodation is a perfect personification of Balinese spirit. Garden, courtyard, house are tangled together and fluid. Open air bathrooms are a fascinating cultural curiosity which we enjoyed very much.
Ground floor room is more European style:with walls, glazing and TV. The first floor bedroom is a Balinese interpretation of it: open to nature, stunning sunset views. Both rooms have big fans and mosquito nets. And we found that it is sufficient to feel comfortable. It was a bit loud at night due to the surrounding nature. Froggy rap accompanied by cricket drum section became our favourite music.
Breakfests are freshly prepared by lovely ladies. You just open the door in the morning and they come relatively soon to make typical breakfast food: eggs (scrambled, fried, omlet or pancakes), toast, fruit and Balinese coffee. Perfect start of a day.
Swimming pool is clean, comfortable, with a shallow section for children. It is long enough to have some meaningful exercise. Tranquil views over the rice field. Stargazing recommended.
Optional services include: massage and taxi. Massage is SUPERB ladies provided us with Balinese relaxation massage. And WE deeply regret that we took only one.....
Gerry recommended Putu the taxi driver for the airport transfer and we also asked him to give us a tour and drive us to Amed. And indeed his services were also excellent. He speaks fairly good English, knows places so can suggest routes if you give him your objectives, talks but also gives room for private conversations. We were so happy that we employed him multiple times.
Overall we had wonderful time and THouse was an integral part of the experience.
The staff on the compound is great. Apart from doing their job well, they also are very helpful in non standard situations such as assisting in changing the cooking class booking or treating the wound. THANK YOU!!!
