The two houses are in a typical balinese style. You are in a place away from crowded places but that makes it so nice. You can hear the river pakerisan, the birds and other natural sounds .The staff is very nice. They can cook typical balinese meals if you order in advance. In the evening it is unbelievable to be so near to the nature.
We had the 2 bedroom property. Lovely place, the main bedroom has huge glass windows and you can enjoy the morning view from your bed. Main bedroom also has a lovely large outdoor toilet that looks on the jungle.
Pros & cons for the rooms : With all the glass you have a very good view of things, on the flip side it is not as private as we would have wished. There are 1-2 staff around the property usually to prepare your food or clean up the rooms so you need to be mindful. Also, the kitchen (where the staff are mostly) is right beside the toilet and main bedroom and sound travels! There is also a liberal scattering of Buddha and Buddha head statutes all around the room. Nice for some but may be a bit scary at night. Because of the open concept of the toilet we also had a monkey visitor on a few mornings.
Furniture is a bit worn but all clean and comfy. They could have improved on the toiletries provided but overall it was all good so no complaints.
Service: Very good service! Meals are served at a pavilion off the main bedroom. Nice comfortable local food, very very decent and at reasonable prices. Staff are very polite and accomodating.
Swimming pool is in an infinity pool style, rather small but nice with little jacuzzi jets also. Deck chairs available for lounging.
The main draw I feel is the quiet and remote location. It's so nice and quiet you may not heard any vehicles or other persons at all. Great for a honeymoon or relaxing visit. Air is fresh and weather seems slightly cooler than Ubud. Luxuriant plants all around the villa, and the gardens are well maintained.
Location wise it's quite remote, located in a small village i.e. not possible for you to get in and out on your own. Hiring a driver is essential if you want to go out to visit other areas. Worth a stroll outside to see the surrounding villages.
