Kayumanis Ubud Private Villa & Spa

... the town – shame about the heavy grey clouds overhead! We relax and make use of the internet for a while, then head out to explore a little and to get some dinner. The town is a busy place, with large numbers of shops, restaurants and bars – and even though there are plenty of tourists the places don’t seem very busy. We end up in a local restaurant where there’s a good selection of veggie-friendly Indonesian food and the beers are ...
... volunteers that were in Ubud a farewell meal. We had a delicious meal at a sushi restaurant, albeit the sizes for the price were very small (two pieces of sushi for 34,000 rupiahs (£3) and not filling so it took a couple of orders to be full. It was then off to CP Lounge for a couple of drinks, bit of loud music and dancing to end the evening. When I say 'a couple of drinks' it basically just involved shooters and rainbow shots - CLASSIC.

... coffee still tasting pretty powdery.
I think maybe brewed using a drip style coffee maker or a french press it would have been the best coffee in the world.
But definitely worth the 5 bucks to try it, especially at the plantation and after having seen the luwaks.
Afterwards we were off to the Holy Spring Water Temple, or Istana Tampak Siring.
This is where I really regretted going with a tour and having Ketut.
In the morning I thought maybe ...
Today was a full day of activities. First we started out with a traditional Balinese performance. That was very entertaining- they give you a little program to explain what is going on but I still didn't follow must of it.
After the performance we headed to the Bali Bird Park. That was wonderful as there were hundreds of different birds species from Bali, South America, ...
... including such things as rural (sweet and sour salad), urban pakis (fern coconut salad), Karen Tempe (Tempe curry), Sambal Tuwung (roasted eggplant Sambal), fried noodles, tomato-lemongrass sauce for fish and green pancakes with coconut for dessert.

TravelPod Member ReviewsKayumanis Ubud Private Villa & Spa
Extraordinary...a delightful balance of feeling like Robinson Crusoe and a pampered princess. We spent 1 week at Kayumanis and are already looking forward to returning later this year. The villa is spacious, tastefully furnished in Balinese style - we adored the outdoor bath and shower. The staff is incredibly friendly - by far, the most gracious team we've met in Asia. The onsite spa is fantastic - a very private bungalow with a variety of options on the menu. We ate regularly at the restaurant onsite (and can highly recommend the Bali Duo for dinner - so good I had it two nights in a row). Make it a point to splurge on one of the romantic, in-villa dining experiences...swimming in your private pool filled with flowers under the stars is a once in a lifetime must-do.
