Ubud, a town in central Bali, is far removed from the drunken bikini scene in Kuta, and is regarded as the cultural centre of Bali. It is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seems to consist of artists' workshops and galleries. There are some remarkable architectural and other sights to be found, and a general feeling of well being to be enjoyed, all thanks to the spirit, surroundings, and climate of the place.
Ubud is arguably the best place to use as a base if you're visiting Bali; if you're looking for culture, comfort, nature and inspiration. Ubud is surrounded by most of the things that bring people to Bali -- scenic rice fields, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples, palaces, rivers, cheap accommodation and unique luxury hotels. And it's central location makes it easy to get from Ubud to the mountains, beaches, and major towns.
Swimming pool and free wifi, breakfast is also inculded in the rate.
Interaction with Guests
If you stay our cottage , me or Wayan will always try to meet and explain you about Ubud and also help you to organize you trip in Bali. Most of the time Wayan will be available to do your tour in Bali for the reasonable price .
Our new hidden place such us the archaeological heritage a long and between the Pakerisan and Petanu river is the place that my guest should visit, as the government just launched those place as new destination, which means there will be less tourist than Ubud .
To get around Bali you can rent car with driver for USD $ 50-USD $ 60 /day including patrol, it is depending where and how far you would like to go or to rent USD $ 5 / motorbike, than you can really explore Bali. Please take note that you should not rent motorbikr if you not use to it, as if you hace accedent in Bali the ambulance system is not yet working well

These mandatory religious prohibitions include no pleasure (amati lelangon), no traffic (amati lelungan), no fire (amati geni) and no work (amati karya).
This year, Nyepi Day falls on 31 March 2014.
On Nyepi Day, we will not be able to accept any check-in nor check-out throughout the day.

However, operational activities and services in the resort will operate normally.
The Balinese are quite open and generally welcome visitors. You can enter most temples freely. Wear a sash around waist and preferably a Sarong.
Big temples can hire a sarong at the front gate but nice to have your own. You can buy a sarong in Ubud market.
Woman who are menstruating must wait out side the temple.
If you visit a holy spring like Pura Tirtha Empul and decided to try bathing, keep your cloth on and leave the shampoo behind. it is not a bath, but an immersion on holy water. for spiritual cleansing.
