Ubud is considered as the cultural and artistic center of tourism on the island of Bali
The main street is Jalan Raya Ubud, which runs east-west through the center of town. Two long roads, Jalan Monkey Forest and Jalan Hanoman, extend south from Jalan Raya Ubud. Puri Saren Agung is a large palace located at the intersection of Monkey Forest and Raya Ubud roads. The home of Tjokorda Gede Agung Sukawati, the last "king" of Ubud, it is now occupied by his descendants and dance performances are held in its courtyard. It was also one of Ubud's first hotels, dating back to the 1930s.
The Ubud Monkey Forest is a sacred nature reserve located near the southern end of Jalan Monkey Forest. It houses a temple and approximately 340 Crab-eating Macaque monkeys.
Ubud tourism focuses on culture, yoga and nature. In contrast to the main tourist area in southern Bali, the Ubud area has forests, rivers, cooler temperatures and less congestion although traffic has increased dramatically in the 21st century. A number of smaller "boutique"-style hotels are located in and around Ubud, which commonly offer spa treatments or treks up nearby mountains.
The Moon of Pejeng, in nearby Pejeng, is the largest single-cast bronze kettle drum in the world, dating from circa 300BC. It is a popular destination for tourists interested in local culture, as is the 11th century Goa Gajah, or 'Elephant Cave', temple complex.
The Blanco Renaissance Museum is also located in the town

Villa D'Bisma is perfectly located away from the noise, but only a short walk to the Monkey Forest and the centre of Ubud. The views from the terrace over the rice paddies are lovely, particularly around sunset, but also nice and private. The villa itself is spacious and comfortable, and the host Dany was very helpful. All in all, would definitely recommend.
We surprised Dany by being early however the staff at Villa D'Bisma and our wonderful driver/guide made us feel more than welcome. The house was clean and there was fresh fruit waiting for us. The listing is adequately described. It's in a quite location and can be a 10min walk from town or you can take the quick short cut (accessed only on foot or scooter) and be at the Monkey Forrest, where there are shops/markets/coffee ect.
A bit of advise if you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. Ubud is teaming with life, and at night nature gets loud. We had a gecko (??? we suspect) on our ceiling that sounded like a fire alarm but once I put in my ear plugs it was manageable.
We absolutely loved our stay at the villa. The pool was perfect, the location was tranquil, private and relaxed, and the location was just a few minutes walk to Sacred Monkey Forest and the cafes and shops. We were very comfortable and Dany was a thoughtful and kind host. Thank you.
We were kindly welcomed by the host. The villa was as described and as portrayed in the pictures.
Dany met us at the villa and showed us around. Villa was as described in the photos, however I wasn't happy with the pool. It was very murky and you couldn't see the bottom. Dany explained that there had been maintenance the day before and assured us it was safe, but we didn't feel comfortable swimming in it. We only popped in for a quick dip to cool off a couple of times. I ended up with an eye infection, which I think may have been from the pool water.
The location is good - 10min walk or 2 min scooter to Monkey forest rd by the back way.
There is a lot of construction going on around the villa, which isn't Dany's fault, but did mean it was noisy at times.
The living area gets a lot of afternoon sun and was very warm. Too hot to leave the doors open and the A/C does a good job of cooling the bedroom, but not the living area. It was a bit of a "hot box" to be honest.
Overall an OK experience with the exception of the pool which was very disappointing.
Dany's place is in a really lovely part of Ubud overlooking rice fields. The apartment was spacious and modern, with a very nice pool at the back.
Dany's villa is a great little retreat, in a really convenient location. The villa looks over a working rice field, and is on a quiet back road that leads in one direction to the centre of the Ubud shopping area and, through a pathway, to the Monkey Forest tourist attraction.
The villa is clean and very comfortable and it's easy to while away the hours by the pool or in the living room. The bathroom is a real treat with marble throughout with great natural light and a bathtub inside to soak in, and a beautiful outdoor shower in a private courtyard behind the bathroom. There is also a large wardrobe/dressing area, which we didn't use in our short stay. The bedroom looks over the pool and the rice fields. The large bed has a mosquito cover and the room is air conditioned. Dany has provided mosquito repellants as well so we had no trouble with insects at all. The living room has comfortable leather sofas, DVDs and hifi so is a great spot to relax; and to watch it rain if you're lucky enough to visit Bali in the beautiful wet season from December to February.
There is a full size kitchen with basic equipment and a coffee drip machine which was a welcome touch. It would be a 15 to 20 minute walk to the shops, so it was great to have coffee available. We didn't cook in the kitchen but I noticed it has basic pots and pans etc if you want a night in. There's a dining table for two looking over the pool as well.
Other reviews mentioned the wifi - we didn't have any issues. WE didn't try to download movies with Bali's notorious connectivity but we were streaming music from our online service with no delays or problems.
Dany was really helpful and patient while we found our way to the villa (damn you Google Maps!) and was very flexible with check in and check out time.
We didn't use the breakfast service; Ubud has a wealth of great little cafes you can try; coffee afficiandos will love Senimam Coffee.
If you have a few days, exploring Ubud by foot is an enjoyable way to see the days go by. If you want to cover more ground quickly, perhaps consider a motorbike to get around.
This is a really great spot - I highly recommend it.
