After looking for a place to stay and this being the only place left we had to book it, but it was clean and reasonable, but not hotel standard.

... for 3 nights. We stayed in a double bungalow with a large four-poster bed and a mosquito net - which was very necessary! Each bungalow had a private bathroom with an outside shower! The complex had an infinity pool over looking beach which was nice for cooling off. Gia and I tried to catch some waves so hired a couple of surf boards from a woman in a shack on the beach! It was good fun, but very hard work and we didn't really manage to catch many waves... Not ...
Along with the cultural aspect of Ubud there is a real good food vibe, lots of cookery schools and lots of very good restaurants compared to Kuta, and the Gilis. Me and Helen gorged on roast lamb shank, and pork chops tired of the local cheap food Nasi Goreng, which is flavored rice with on some chicken and then some prawn crackers, depending on the area there is an egg thrown on top.
