This is our second stay at Toko Toko Bungalows, and it is wonderful to have the opportunity to once again experience the serenity of this enchantingly beautiful Balinese family compound transformed into a hotel. The rooms are spacious, all thoughtfully designed to include comfortable outside living space and rest areas, and come in a range of prices. The Toko family is very kind, caring, and generous, and their staff efficient and friendly. The infinity pool overlooking the rice paddies isn't too hard to take either, and the on site restaurant serves good food as well! You might expect this island of serenity to be somewhere isolated in the country, but it is in fact only a few moments walk to numerous excellent restaurants, as well as shopping opportunities, and only a five minute motorbike ride to Central Ubud. It is a pleasure to be back here again, and we will certainly return in future.

... culture, one we have enjoyed exploring and we both think that we would like to come back here again, not just to Ubud but to Bali as a whole. The island and its surrounding area has so much to see and do, there is snorkelling, diving and swimming in the sea, not to mention having your own personal wave machine on some beaches. The jungle is there to trek through, right up to the top of volcanoes if you have the energy and fitness, ...
... it a day of rest by turning of all lights for the entire day. It is also believed that the silence discourages the evil spirits from returning, having been appeased by the creation of huge evil spirit representations by villagers everywhere in their honor, all of which were loudly and ceremoniously paraded the previous evening throughout the towns and villages of Bali. As we take advantage of this opportunity to reflect, I must say that ...
... and get a few good pics. Overall of fun experience and the scenery was fantastic. Jungles all around and high mountains surrounded us. Monkeys swung by a few times. A perfect first time experience. Lots of reading and swimming once we got back. At dinner they showed a few old documentaries about Bali which helped us piece together various practices, dances and music we have experienced over the past few weeks. "One more year, One more year" ... ...
... decided tonight that we just wanted to get down there instead of spending the day in the car I sent him a message telling him to come at midday not 10. Considering how quick he'd been to respond previously, I was a bit concerned when I didn't got a message straight back. Maybe he was asleep. We didn't want him turning up at 10 and waiting around for a couple of hours if we were up in town.
We finished off the vodka and kahlua with another round of Black Russians.
... Made, asked if we wanted to "do purification" and we all said yes...without asking a single question about what this was or what it involved. All we knew was we needed our swim stuff. I don't even think I realised exactly what it was until we went to get changed, at which point it was too late - we were all being purified! This involved getting into an icy cold pool of natural spring water (which also had rather large koi carp it in) ...
