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.

The book was published in 2006, and the movie adaptation followed shortly after in 2010. And I'm sure what was once a quiet, quaint small town, is now a very touristy, yogi driven, busy city.
On our drive up, I was mesmerized by the rice fields and terraces. They went on for hectare's! Melting into the blue skies across the fields. It ignited the urge to paint.. The quiet, serenity of the tiny, in-between villages just outside of Ubud is magical.
... trip. He has built four self contained apartments in two double storey buildings at the back of his land. One of the flats is booked (and paid) for 12 months by an Australian who has spent two weeks there out of eight months. I'd say between his walking tours and the four apartments he's doing pretty well. Good luck to him.
Spent a couple of hours out by the blissfully shaded spring pool.

... use so much strength and people on all sides to push the chairs into the classroom! Everyday it is the same and it is so unsafe for the girls and boy in the chairs as well as for the people having to help them. Despite this though, they are still the most wonderfully happy children I have ever met and their faces light up at the smallest if things. One girl is so smart that today she calculated (9x12)-24 in her head ...
... of the oldest restaurants in Legian and trying their 'rice platter' which gives you a small portion of about 10 different dishes ranging from satay to curry, beef Redang, sweet and sour squid, shredded chicken, pickled veggies, steamed shrimp and veggies, all served with steamed rice a a fried rice to share between two. It was a pretty yummy evening in a really beautiful location - a Balinese garden tucked away down a tiny narrow street just a few meters away from the hustle and bustle ...
... The shops here are large and most sure glass frontage with large glass doors. They have some beautiful colourful fabrics. Some of the clothes are gorgeous, overpriced and they seem to embellish everything with a frill or some beaded bit. Shame. I love the colours though. A lot of kaftans around. They streets are still small and the pavements are in constant need of repair....Bali! The streets are really quiet, I suppose it's just the newcomers that walk ...
