We weren't supposed to stay here. We had a booking at a nearly brand new resort 10 minutes out of Ubud. Unfortunately I'd booked it for a month earlier, non-refundable rate of course. Only realising my error when I was prompted to review our stay there, it was a scramble to book another hotel a couple of weeks out.
What an unusual gem the Hotel Tjampuhan and Spa is. The small lobby area gives you no idea of what spreads out beside and below you in the small valley.
We booked a deluxe Raja room and our room was in Gunung block just to the right and below of the lobby. If you don't like lots of steps, and there are LOTS of steps at the hotel, Gunung is a good choice. But... it, and the building above it, look to be the oldest buildings at the hotel and our bathroom really showed that. It had no natural light (every other building looked to have glass bricks providing natural light into them) and was dank and a bit grotty, and didn't fit with most everything else at the hotel. Forgetting the bathroom the room was large, had decently comfortable beds, good aircon and a ceiling fan, a safe, plenty of cupboards and a terrace that we could look down to the pool from.
Two pools, one more shaded than the other, one with a staffed pool bar, a very unusual spa down by the creek where we both had good, if unusual, massages.
The restaurant is in a quite amazing building near the lobby. Breakfast is served here each morning. A very large buffet with full eastern and western options plus an egg station.
There is a free shuttle up into and back from the town. Although the hotel is on the main road and it's only a 15 minute walk, it's all up hill, and it's hard work with the high humidity.
If I ever go back to Ubud, I'd most likely stay at Tjampuhan, but as stairs don't yet worry me, I'd ask for a room closer to the spring pool in the buildings that look newer than Gunung.

... gone out the window. So we had an apartment booked for £4 a night each and turned up and it was the most amazing place. Little garden with flowers all around it and there was a balcony with two chairs and a coffee making set. The bedroom inside was massive with wooden shutters all around and the bathroom had pebbles where you stand and shower. It was definitely luxury for £4! The next day we went to the Monkey Forest which was just down ...
We decided to do the Campuhan Ridge Trek first this morning so we set off walking and it only took about 20 mins to get to from our hotel. The start of the walk is off the main road, down some steps and past a temple but it's easy to miss off the main road (which we did first time haha). It's a 3km trek which is mainly uphill on the way but the views are amazing! There were steep drops down into jungle on either side of the path which then turned into flatter land full of ...
... Now heading home we stopped off at that temple we had passed earlier in the day. Again cause this is a religious site and we were wearing shorts we all had to wear a piece of clothing which looked like a long kilt to cover our legs. The temple was cool but like the one in bangkok it was more a case of walking around outside and not getting to see inside the buildings which is a bit rubbish. Our driver explained that the bigger temples are most likely public ...
... day when we were out doing some shopping we brought a plug in fan to help Sare keep her little baby cool during the day and night as we knew that she didn’t have one in her home. The morning when we presented it to her she was over the moon and she beamed a happy smile and thanked us in her broken English and gave us hugs to express her gratitude. I swear there were slight tears in her almond shaped eyes as they closed to slits and she hugged the fan close to her bosom like a ...
... crostini – yum! Have to say that we have had some really superb food in Seminyak, there is a great range of lovely restaurants, which although pricer than your Cendana’s of the world, do seem to churn out some excellent dishes.
After a bit more shopping and the purchase of a watch which subsequently died 2 days later for Ange, we wandered back along the beach to meet Joe. Quick change of clothes then we hopped in a taxi to Tanak Lot for sunset. Our driver ...
