Ubud is an eclectic arty town about an hours drive from Denpasar airport.
It is well known for the art-yoga-vegetarian scene and definitely worth a stop over for a few nights to explore the local area.
Sprinkled in and around Ubud are free flowing waterfalls, lush rain forests and sacred sights.
Accommodation ranges from home stays – very keep and usually suitable, through to elaborate, six star world class resorts.
This time around I opted to stay at the Villa Sonja as it was close to the side of town where I was doing my reiki course (at Ubud Yoga Centre).
I was really impressed. For the price, the rooms were large and clean.
The villas are an assortment of rooms, (hotel style) and larger rooms. All with private bathrooms.
Two large pools ensures plenty of swimming options and there is a warung for meals on site. I usually eat next door at the Swasti Eco Village as it offers incredible food.
I would rate this place as 7/10 over all. 9/10 value for money.
