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 Ubud's mountains.
its definitly the most incredible location i ever stayed at. the house is very artistic and there is so much stuff and little corners to discover. i could just sit there for hours and look down the gorge and admire the incredible nature that enfolded itself infront of you. the only thing that was a little strange to me at first and needed a lot of adjustment was that the whole house , that has more then 17 sleep possibilites, was only booked by russian guest.
I really enjoyed my time here – although it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The setting is stunning – I woke to a wonderful view and fell asleep to the sounds of nature. The house itself is amazing – a work of art, all organic shapes and very colourful. Lots of space, in my room and plenty of living space. Nice communal feel (depends who is staying there at the time, I guess) and I met some interesting people (and a cat and two rabbits). Felt really safe there – a fellow guest laughed at me for locking the door to my room as I was going out, but leaving the window wide open! Actually I couldn’t get the window to shut - but it felt perfectly safe to leave it open during the day and at night too, better to hear the sounds and feel and breathe the gorgeous fresh air.
I stayed in a different room from the one I booked. Each room is different and unique. Mine (‘Santa Mandala Fabulous Place’) was huge with open-sided bathroom, various spaces for lounging, reading, writing, creating - indoors and out - and a comfortable bed.
I didn’t meet Katerina - she was away – but Mike, who was looking after everything, was friendly and helpful.
Some drawbacks: It’s quite far out of town, and not always easy to get transport (when I was there, locals, including drivers, were busy with full-moon ceremonies at the temple). That would be no problem if you have your own transport. No food is available at all within walking distance. You can use the kitchen or get deliveries from cafes in town. I wasn’t in the mood for cooking, more for enjoying the great local food, so this wasn’t what I’d planned – but it was fine. Also, the communal kitchen wasn’t very clean, as people were not cleaning up after themselves – actually it was a bit like The Young Ones! That would have got to me had I been staying more than a few days.
If all of this sounds fine, then go for it. It is, as another reviewer said, an ‘experience’, and for me it was a pretty positive one – but just be clear about whether the experience is for you.
