... walk that sometimes took us right through people's yards, Comos showed us arabica coffee plants, avocado, durian, banana, long bean, clove trees, and much more. He was passionate about explaining the many uses of the various plants and it was interesting to hear how the Balinese people use nature in so many different ways. The people at our hotel were right - there is absolutely no way Jason and I would have been able to navigate this difficult trek on our own.
After many hours of flying and waiting, and flying.... we have finally arrived in Denpasar.
Even though it was nearly midnight we managed to get a couple of club sandwiches and beers. The room isn't quite as nice as we had hoped, but it will suffice. It's ...
... course, a couple people got turned around and we were late leaving. The drive from Ubud to Lovina is about 4 hrs, over the mts to the Sea of Bali. Have I explained the roads here? They are like a 1 lane road....with traffic both ways, cars/trucks parking ON the road, motor scooters with adults , or children driving, or families riding...add to that the walkers with bundles of grass or baskets atop their heads. And a windy ...
... a driver for tomorrow (quick and easy). Clean up and relax at the hotel. Go to Le Jaenzan for dinner since it's rated #1 on TripAdvisor and the Austrian lady recommended it. It almost looked closed from the outside. We were the only ones there at first. Dinner was good but nothing out of this world. The chef came over and talked to us for a while and convinced us to get dessert, which was very good.
Up somewhat early again to pack and eat before driver gets us.
... us how much it would cost then!? Finally me managing to kick a religious offering to the Gods, which the Balinese put on the floor outside each of their shops/ homes every night, right across the road...... I didn't see it!
It is our last day in Bali tomorrow and we are going on a day trip, which looks really good so we will update you all once we have safely reached Yogyakarta.
Lots of love

Historical Traveler Reviews Bali Spirit Hotel and Spa Ubud
Just rexax and enjoy the views.
How can anybody not enjoy this place,Good Taxi service to the town too.We will be back again one day.
Wow! This hotel is in an exoitc tropical setting about 2 km away from Ubud, with free shuttle transport into the city every 2 hrs. The bungalows were incredibly comfortable, with all of the standard amenities, and just outside your room was a tropical paradise and all sorts of interesting "indigenous" sculptures. A lush setting to enjoy and relax.....the grounds were a gem and beautifully maintained. Accompanying breakfast was just OK and the swimming pool was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and affable. I have paid 3 times as much as I paid for this place with less satisfactory results!
A Real Pleasure!!!
The Bali Spirit Hotel and Spa took our breath away upon our arrival when we glanced over the lobby balcony and saw our first view of the property. We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The property is very lush and extremely beautiful as it is like being in the middle of a rain forest.
The staff were tremendous at the hotel and you always felt very well taken care of as they always looked out for you. We enjoyed all of the other guests that we met at this home away from home as well. Due to the small size of the hotel it captures a very cozy atmosphere where you are made to feel like very important guests.
The shuttle daily into the town of Ubud is very convenient. Our family enjoyed the "spa package" and the included candle lit dinner was amazing!!! The food was above average which was a pleasant surprise! Another added bonus is that the hotel is very economical as well!!!
The rooms were very clean and large and the outdoor shower was fabulous. We would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone looking to experience the real Ubud!!
A very rare treat
Bali Spirit was a wonderful experience. My wife and I had spent a few weeks in other parts of Bali; starting with the five star pampering of a suite in Nusa Dua and the accommodating internationally blurred fine dining. I had been encouraged to see the core of Balinese culture in Ubud, and Bali Spirit was recommended by a savvy traveler as a place to stay. The art and culture of Ubud exceeded any pampering offered at a five star resort.
Bali Spirit is an authentic design that clings to the side of a steep valley with the occasional terrace for the pool and paths. It is dramatic, a private retreat in the jungle where the vegetation is luxuriant.
The tariff is very reasonable and the service is good, in keeping with the personal favour of the place. (The owner is from a local family) Food and its cost is again appropriate for the place. Shuttle service to Ubud is convenient, but it is the striking location and the design of the place that makes it so outstanding and for that it is rare find and a bargain
Loved every minute!
I rather stay here than in central Ubud where it can get pretty crowded with australians.
beautiful place with great landscape over looking the palm trees.
I highly recommend the place.
make sure you book a regular room and not the superior room. standard rooms are more modern and nicer and cheaper!
My bf and I made a mistake by booking a superior room at a higher rate. I am not saying it was bad but standard rooms were, for strange reason, nicer at this place.
Stayed for 5 nights in Nov 2005. Very nice resort, very quiet and secluded. Beautiful grounds. Not luxurious, but very comfortable and rustic.
Set into the side of a hill and overlooking a river, this resort is gorgeously designed. It is very different from your regular luxury resort, in that it doesn't have all the 5 star regular amenities such as TV, fluffy pillows, etc. Expect the "exotic" experience of living in the forest. Rooms are large with kitchenette and outdoor showers. All the rooms are in separate building with 4 rooms per building so it's very secluded. Get a bottom room since it's cooler and has an outdoor shower.
Breakfast is included. Don't expect great buffets. You'll get a choice of American (bacon, eggs, etc) or Indonesian (rice/noodles, etc).
Beautiful pool set against a small cliff, and overlooking the river.
A good distance from town, but resort offers free shuttle on regular schedule or your schedule for a very small fee.
Staff very helpful.
Remember it's set in the forest, so expect some critters. They fumigate regularly for mosquitos but still expect to get some bites. I'm very susceptible to mosquitos and I survived.
Highly recommend this if you want something different.
Lovely hotel . Very nice jungle type setting. Lots of stairs down to the pool and restaurant. We stayed in one of the Legong suites which was spacious and comfortable. Well stocked mini bar at reasonable prices. Breakfast was fine, the best bit was the wonderful view over the river below. Staff very friendly and attentive. Not the most luxurious hotel but excellent value for money and we enjoyed our stay. Ubud was the first place we stayed in Bali and it gives a flavour of the "real" Bali. Within 1/2 hours walk you can be amongst rice fields and strolling through small villages.
Beautiful, relaxing, good value, would return
I loved this hotel. The price was so reasonable, that it sounded too good to be true. I emailed them a few times and asked a travel agent's advice before booking. We were met at the airport for our complimentary transportation to the hotel by the nicest driver. Our standard room (one of the Emerald rooms) was large enough, nice enough, and with a basket of fruit waiting for us. The private outdoor bathroom with huge shower were immediately inviting after the long flight. In the separate dressing area inside, there was a minibar and hot pot with bottled water, instant coffee, and tea. I brought a melitta 1-cup plastic drip coffee maker and decaf coffee with me since I suspected decaf would be hard to find. It was a good choice. I enjoyed the small patio area with my coffee in the morning. The hotel is built on the side of a hill. There are many stairs between reception, restaurant, bar, and the rooms. They can be quite slippery when wet. The restaurant overlooks the river and is quite nice for the included, made to order breakfast. Do order the ginger tea. The hotel was so quiet that I was convinced that we must be the only guests. I was surprised to see so many at breakfast each morning! The hotel staff helped us book tours, massages, and dance performances. The spice bath massage is especially nice. Bali is an incredible place. The Bali Spirit Hotel made it perfect. I can't wait to go back. I would absolutely stay here again.
Mar 05 - great value hotel. At this price (65 USD incl brkfst, not-including tax & svc) how can you really compare to the Four Seasons and such? We were expecting a backpacker-ish hotel and were pleasantly surprised that it was not. Setting is lovely and grounds are rustic, but pretty. River running through the back is serene. Had a massage in one of the outdoor pavilions, which was a good massage, but girl was a little to chatty, but really just trying to be friendly. Overall, staff was attentive and helpful.
Rooms did NOT have the musty smell that some 3* hotels have. No TV (we didn't care), 2nd floor rooms have small balconies, but just enough space to relax. Stocked mini-bar at good prices. Don't expect big, fluffy towels and the beds were a bit stiff. Bathroom is rustic, outdoor design, but clean and acceptable.
Nightly turn-down service and mozzie coil lit in the bathroom. Breakfast was average, but acceptable, that was the only meal we ate at the hotel. There are PLENTY of good restaurants in Ubud. Pool was clean and staffed. Free shuttle into Ubud which runs on a specific schedule. If you want to go at your own pace, it was only 1USD. For only 2 nights, this hotel was fine! For a longer stay in Ubud (and with a little more $$), maybe look for one step up. We moved here after 4 nights at Grand Hyatt Nusa Dua and in comparison Bali Spirit is a fantastic value.
Great little hotel good service friendly people good value for money.
Grounds very beautiful just like being in the jungle, swimming pool great very clean. Restaurant very good value for money also good restaurants in Ubud and hotel provides free shuttle bus.
Stayed in Tantra Suite large and clean little tired.
