We stayed in the Ubud Sari Health Resort as part of a birthday celebration and partly to escape the madness of our earlier destination : Kuta.
My boyfriend and myself booked a Zen Cottage for 3 nights and were so looking forward to a relaxing oasis for much needed rejuvenation and deep cleansing.
When we arrived, we were met by a friendly receptionist and were presented with a 'welcoming drink'. How nice I thought!
The place, however, did not disappoint. Almost immediately, the surroundings, beautiful greenery and chilled ambience had a soothing effect.
Our zen cottage was just a little haven. A two-storey affair with an upstairs bedroom surrounded by open windows with views of trees, blue skies and raw nature. We enjoyed nothing more than to simply lie on our comfortable bed just looking out the windows and listening the delightful sounds of the waterfalls outside.
The cottage was just charming and everynight, the staff would come in to light incense before preparing your space for sleeping i.e. shutting windows, plugging in anti-mosquitoes devices etc. Was such a sweet touch.
The treatments and the staff were wonderful and I couldn't praise them enough for their care and attention.
I would say, however, that the restaurant is slightly over-priced and you would probably be better off going down the road to a few of the cheaper options which have a wider choice in menu.
Overall, I am only sad that I didn't stay longer and I would defintely come back!
