... most exciting adventure days came next as we went canyoning. This involved being suited and booted in wetsuit gear and strapped up to a harness in order to slide down waterfalls, jump off rocks and abseil down through waterfalls. The two guides were brilliant and stupidly good at abseiling and it all lasted nearly four hours so a great amount of time! Awesome fun!
The next morning we got picked up at 2am for trek up a volcano to see the sunrise. It was pitch black and ...
... Tourist Information Office, we once more stopped to watch a local football match. This time it was young kids playing & many of them were actually very good! The Ubud team (in Orange) lost 4-0 to their visitors (in Red) but the strikers for the reds had some serious pace and talent. The oranges though had our favourite players; tubs and teeny. Tubs was a tubby boy and a pretty bad player but he did run about a lot and worked hard. Teeny was a teeny boy who was a striker and a ...
... Next we stopped at the largest community of painter on Bali. There was room after room filled with hundreds of beautiful paintings. I guess the disadvantage of traveling for so long is that you are unable to bring back souvenirs like these. We wish we could have bought them all! The next destination – the volcano on Bali! It was an hour and a half drive to get there but we were entertained by all of the gorgeous architecture, small handi-craft stores ...
... carvings on the doors and nice big terraces outside every room. I couldn't believe this place was so cheap! The family complemented the beautiful surroundings perfectly, being super-friendly, kind and generous. They brought us a big plate of fresh fruit and some coffee each and talked us through some of the places nearby. During our time there, they organised tickets to a kecak dance at a discounted rate, gave us lifts down the road on their motorbikes (even though we were ...

Actually it’s not too bad just don’t stir it once it has settled.
Arriving in Kintamani you will be totally surrounded, swamped by hawkers selling (pushing in your face) their wears (at very cheap prices) but boy getting out of there was a nightmare. 1:00pm We arrived at the Om ...

Historical Traveler Reviews KajaNe Mua Private Villa & Mansion Ubud
Stayed here for 2 nights & absolutely loved it! Wish we had stayed longer.
The Kajane Mua is a great alternative to the Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay for the more budget conscious. You don't get the stunning view of the ocean or the luxury as you do at the Four Seasons, but the standard of the villa is just as good, if not better. The service at the Kajane is simply outstanding, among the best I've come across in my nine trips to Bali. I asked one of the staff to help me buy some local fruits, which I wanted to present to my mum back home, and he did promptly, bringing me a whole bag within an hour. After we'd checked out, they even gave us complimentary use of one of the living rooms at one of their villas, since we had about four hours to kill before heading to the airport. The location couldn't be better for those who want proximity to some of the best restaurants, shops and culture in Ubud. There's even an excellent authentic ``nasi padang'' eatery about 100 meters away from the hotel where a plate of rice and four dishes and drinks for two would cost you only about $5.
Loved the Kajane Mua Villa
Kajane has exceeded our expectation in every way. We stayed 7 nights and we enjoyed every minutes of it. The room was beautifully designed and the service was excellent.
We stayed in a three bedroom Danu villa; the setting of the villa was very intimate and private. The pool was magnificent.
The service was over the top; everyone served us with a smile. Breakfast and afternoon tea was something we look forward to every morning and afternoon. They set everything up on the patio where we enjoyed our morning sun and afternoon breeze. Not to discount the room and the location, but the service seems to be highlight of our stay. We hope to visit Ubud again and we will definitely stay with Kajane.
Dream Hotel - Wish we were there now
Beautifully designed - with amazing attention to detail (husband and I are design snobs so we noticed the high-end materials). We stayed in Beji Kila which was great - with another villa only on one side separated by a wall and greenery. We felt like we were in our own private country house.
The staff was over the top nice - we stayed an extra night because we loved it so much.
One caveat is that they are building the rice fields right across the ravine from the villas so currently there is a view of construction workers and mud. I'm sure once it's finished it will be lovely.
I'm hoping the price doesn't increase too much as it was a bargain and I would love to go back!
Hi all we stayed at the Kajane Mua in jan 06 and what a very special place it is the staff are wonderful and the rooms are very good value, all in all cant find better.
My husband and I stayed at the Kajane Mua at the end of December 2005 for four nights and we had an absolutely wonderful time. We had two nights in the Toya villa type and two nights in the Beji villa type. We are both in our early-30s and travel extensively for both business and pleasure.
Location can't be beaten since it's off Monkey Forest Road. There are eateries, spas & shops right outside yet the villas were private and secluded.
Stayed in this hotel on the strength of the reviews and forums and it did not disappoint. The location is perfect for exploring Ubud - right down the road from Monkey Forest Sanctuary and the drivers will take you anywhere in town for free. I stayed in the Beji Gita villa all the way at the back of the hotel and had an infinity pool that overlooked the river gorge and trees. I felt like I was in my own little sanctuary right off busy Monkey Forest Road. The main highlight was the staff - Service was impeccable (everyone seemed to know my name!) and I thought it was a very nice touch to be served tea in the afternoon.
A really neat find!
Would like to second the 'amazing' review above... we just got back from kajane and enjoyed it throroughly... stayed in the beji villa, ours did not have a river gorge view but just a greenery view, which was nonetheless very pleasing to the eyes... interiors are gorgeous, loved the infinity pool, the terrace, the swing, outdoor bath and the huge walk in closet/dresser... also liked the free transport within ubud. We did a lot of walk in research on other hotels in Ubud but couldn't find a better value for money. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend it to anyone!
