Quiet Week in Ubud at Beautiful Resort

Chicago, Illinois

This resort is beautiful and quiet (please note that it is located atop the hill away from Ubud City Centre), which was perfect for us as we wanted to relax after a long week in Seminyak (much louder and considerably less sleep). Positives: - We looked forward to afternoon tea at the pool every day, which was served from 3-4p. It's a very small gesture, but we ended up looking forward to it every day. It's the resort's unofficial meeting time for all of the guests to get together around the pool and enjoy complimentary coffee/tea/desserts. It led right into happy hour, so my husband and I ended up at the pool almost every afternoon for hours until dinner time. - Award-winning pool. It's absolutely stunning. - The Terrace Tree Villa is absolutely stunning and worth the upgrade! We were initially in the Valley Villa (too much nature, aka bugs), but hotel management was able to accommodate a room change. We absolutely loved our upgraded villa and highly recommend it to anyone staying here. - The hotel has monkeys living on the property. This is a plus and my husband and I found the monkeys entertaining all week. - Staff was very kind, especially Addi and Juli. Negatives: - Hotel should add an additional shuttle time to its route to Ubud City Centre during the evening. The latest shuttle pick-up is 2:30/3:00. There should be an evening stop so that guests can easily get to Ubud center for dinner / drinks. - Restaurant service is extremely forgetful and slow. We often had to make the same requests repeatedly until we got our order. Not indicative of a traditional 5-star resort. - If you do not like bugs, do not stay in the Valley Villa. This villa overlooks the jungle and has an open-air bathroom, which will have many bugs. Fortunately, hotel management was able to accommodate a room change for us.

Very disappointing - do not stay here

United States

I stayed here with my partner in Nov 2019 and we were very disappointed with our stay for the following reasons: 1) 100s of bugs and other insects everywhere - at dinner when you are eating inside your food on the table, in your room in the bed, in the bathroom, everywhere. 2) room was not as pictured - the pictures are totally deceiving - rooms are old. Pictures look photoshopped. All in we paid a lot of money for an experience which we did not receive. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast food is good but the issues we faced made our experience very disappointing.
