This gorgeous property is set on a very steep river canyon along the banks of the river Ayung. Each "room" is actually a Villa with it's own private pool and secluded privacy wall. You feel like you are transported to paradise, but with white glove service! The check-in is done in your own villa while you enjoy a welcome cocktail! No one expects you to walk the steep property so you call a porter to pick you up in a golf cart for anything! Breakfast and high tea are included and you can have either at your villa or restaurant. Breakfast is served on the highest level of the property near the lobby and overlooks an idyllic view of the rice paddies that are across the river. Lunch and dinner are served along the river at the Swept Away restaurant, also picturesque. The food is amazing. There is a cooking class offered by one of the resort chef's that we took part of that was a major highlight of our stay. They first gave us a tour of the Ubud morning market and then latter we cooked several authentic Balinese dishes which we all ate for lunch, delicious! We traveled with our 18 month old son and the resort erected a safety fence up around the pool just for him! Also they supplied us with a beautiful crib, with Winnie the Pooh bedding that we regretably could not use due to his age, this crib is more for infants not yet pulling to a stand or walking. Instead they supplied us with another bed for him and that worked out great! While the setting is so incredible, I've never stayed in a private villa before, what really made the resort so unforgetable was the service. From the porters that would drive us up and down in the golf carts to the restaurant service staff to the concierge to the management, everyone really made us feel like they were bending over backwards to please and would do so with such a genuine spirit and a smile! Everyone was so accommodating of our son and doted on him the entire time. We loved it so much that our once in a lifetime trip to Bali .... infected us so much that we are returning again in the same year, this time in August!
