the entire hotel sits overlooking the ayung river valley, a lush tropical forest filled with birds and monkeys. the dining room and infiniti pool overlook the jungle and an ancient temple across the valley; and the monkey’s come right on over to hang out.
we pretty much stayed in a tree house. literally. our villa sat nestled in the trees at the edge of the valley, with a wrap around porch, indoor-outdoor bathroom, and canopy bed in the center of the room overlooking the jungle and volcanoes. and of course the room is equipped with your own pair of binoculars and a bali bird book!
the food is local with lots made in-house and the cocktails are fresh. start your day with a massive breakfast selection. snack on some spicy roasted cashews while you enjoy a complimentary house ice tea by the pool. grab lunch in the shady poolside dining lounge. book a private dinner for two overlooking the rice paddies.
spoil yourself with a spa treatment. borrow hotel bikes and take a leisurely tour through the rice paddies and local villages. or book a hotel car to take you into ubud to eat, shop and admire all the local art; that is if you can tear yourself away from how incredible this place is and actually leave. i could have stayed here for a very very long time, and the gf was practically in tears when we had to check out.
