Happy New Year from Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

2014 has been a rather spectacular year for us, as we have now brought in the New Year for the third time in as many months. On Canadian soil, just prior to departing on this adventure, we celebrated New Year's Eve on December 31st, as per usual. Then, a month later, on February 1st, when we arrived in Kuala Lumpur, we discovered it was the Chinese …

Slowing Down in Beautiful Ubud

The sub-title for The Continuing Adventures of Dreamchasers 2014 is "Slow Down, You Move Too Fast". Although we have had longer stays in one place during this year's travels than last - at least three of which lasted over a week - we have still done a fair amount of moving around in the past three months, as you will have noticed if you've been …

09:10 We left Gili T this morning after a hurried breakfast only to find that we were waiting around for half an hour to get on the boat.

Once at Lombok - about 20 men boarded the boat on one side thus tipping the boat way over to one side making it impossible to stand up, and in the chaos started heading for peoples bags. One guy grabbed mine and was up and off the boat before I could say anything. Once the chaos ...

... fruit in half and we took a piece each. The smell did not put us off nor did it resemble a soiled baby’s nappy that some people say but it was strong and distinctive. We both thought that it tasted Ok but one piece would have been enough. However, as durian is huge and it is considered rude to leave food, we eat the whole lot which was shared out between ourselves and the driver. The taste of durian stayed with us for the rest of the day which was not great ...

    Stellar Staff, Magical Garden, Beautiful Pool, Great Stay

    We first stayed at Artini 2 in May 2013. At the time, we were just completing four months of travel to six countries, during which we covered over 52,000 kilometres, and stayed at a lot of guest houses, but the beautiful, extensive garden setting of Artini 2 was the most enchanting of them all. The rooms were good, and the staff exceptional. We loved it then, and loved it equally still when we returned again this year, this time after three months of travel to another four different countries, and a lot more hotels and guest houses. Artini 2 still wins the prize for the most magical setting and beautiful pool. But this time we felt like we were returning home, and were greeted warmly by staff who still remembered us from our previous visit, and the included breakfast was a good as ever.

    The Artini 2 is not new - it has been around a number of years - and some of the rooms are nicer than others. We stayed in three different rooms during our visits. They vary in their offerings. Although all three were spacious, two of the three also had huge, elegant bathrooms, while the third had an average bathroom, nothing spectacular, but the room was bright and spacious, and the view from the balcony was absolutely stellar. Plus it had Internet access - they don't all, but the Internet is fast in the public areas.

    We love this exceptionally beautiful, quiet, hidden retreat right in the centre of Ubud, and highly recommend it.

    Room Tip: If there is availability, check out a couple of different options when you arrive.

    You Owe it to Yourself to Stay Here

    We have been travelling for four months, and in that time have visited six countries. In that period we have enjoyed some beautiful guest houses, hotels, and gardens. However, the garden - or, more appropriately, the estate - on which this hotel is situated exceeds all others in its spellbinding beauty.

    The garden property is immense, with cottages and rooms situated on a number of levels. All have private balconies that overlook a section of its beautifully manicured, creatively designed tropical paradise that has its own population of beautifully sculpted, gigantic gargoyles, alligators, lions, and other creatures who surprise you as you walk through the gardens. The centre of attraction is a large pool facing a rock wall with even more immense and magnificent carvings. Spellbinding.

    The Artini 2 is explicitly Balinese, not only in decor but also in the traditional Balinese uniforms all the staff wear. The service was excellent, beginning with extensive introductory information and a complimentary beverage, and carrying through to daily room cleaning, excellent restaurant catering, and immediate response to any requests. The service extended well beyond expectation, however, when I found myself dealing with the stress of loosing my bank card to an ATM machine. Anyone who has experienced this overseas will know what I am talking about. The staff at the hotel took it upon themselves to track down my bank card for me, made arrangements for the card to be returned to the nearest bank, called the bank daily to follow up on the process, the completion of which took three days, and then drove me on motor scooter to the bank to pick it up. A very special thanks to our hotel attendants Madi, Ketut, and Jeffrey for making our stay at Artini 2 absolutely delightful.

    Our stay here was magical, so much so that we extended it and spent more time than usual just relaxing on the grounds and enjoying the beauty of this oasis.

    Treat yourself. Don't miss the opportunity to stay at the Artini 2 Cottages.

    Magical gardens and very quiet. Met everyone on the tour shortly after arriving at the cottages at 6pm .Our tour leader Andrew gave us an overview of the next days activities. We left in our 2 tour vans for the night markets. Ate at dubious location. The lady next to me was eating a fish with teeth,eyes and scales ! Lol .I ate a vegetable dish and bought a piece of yellow melon. It was all a bit raw to begin with. Mainly women had the stalls and were selling either food or flowers for offerings to appease the Gods. We began to get to know our diverse group.They seemed a nice friendly lot of 12 from all over the world.

    A blissful tranquil place in the middle of bustling ubud. A delightful hotel and amazing pool with a backdrop of gardens, statutes and waterfalls. We took the top room - room 102 well worth the extra £13 per night for air con, better breakfast, fridge, kettle, tv and DVD !!!

    Breakfast a bit basic bit sufficient !
