Me hot and with this kind of view, I went to Desa Visesa because I was curious what was Desa Visesa Ubud Bali has to offer with their complex of hotel, even their location pretty near with Ubud center. It's written, "Discover a wealth of activity that reflects the authentic lifestyle and heritage traditions of a Balinese Village.", for traveler that use to stay in a house own by local when traveling, whether because to feel the authenticity of the place they are visiting or to cut the staying cost, it's still an experience that interesting to try in a lifetime, and Desa Visesa make it easier for you to feel the Balinese lifestyle at their hotel, especially with its Permaculture Activity at Desa Visesa Ubud Bali.
Located near Ubud center, Desa Visesa Ubud provides so many activities, especially that represent Balinese lifestyle that you can experience while you stay at the Hotel (I will write in a separate post about the permaculture activity, for now, let's find out what else you can do at the Hotel). As Hotel that promotes an authentic Balinese lifestyle another thing you can do is, of course, relax, because for me Bali especially Ubud is a place that suits for maximum relaxation, enjoy the time, forest bathing while reading your favorite books, practice your skill at cooking class, do yoga & another healing thing, something that also you can do at Desa Visesa Ubud, although their concept is a Balinese Village, as you can see the room is like another modern hotel with comfort even bathtub, that essentials especially if you interested to do a lot of activity here.
