A Great Food - Thanks to their in-house Petani Restaurant for the wide selections of food & beverage especially Indonesian & Balinese dishes. You can read or you can visit and proved yourself, how nice to spend your time at Petani Restaurant. Moreover this year, next to the Alaya Hotel Ubud, there will be a new restaurant open, Manisan Bali Restaurant, I should try it next time, because when I was there, they were building the restaurant, or I believe they are still building and touching it up, to be open soon in July 2016, how excited right?
A Great Location - It is a walking distance to the famous Monkey Forest Ubud (like 5 minutes walking) and 30 minutes walking from Ubud Center, where you can walk and enjoy the Ubud street with their unique shops and cafes in between. There is also a supermarket if you need something out of sudden, and also the Yoga Barn? Is next to the hotel, you're welcome :)
A Great Hospitality - I felt very been welcomed every time I visit Alaya or Petani, thank you so much :) and they also have a mission to help in need with all their program, totally worth to be involved by stay here 1 or 2 nights when you are in Ubud. Alaya Ubud is quite a well-known hotel in Ubud and those positives reviews are indeed true, at least for myself and proved everytime I step my feet here.
I still didn't have a chance to try the Dala Spa, maybe we can keep it for later, but I have seen them and it is beautiful Spa, with classic and rustic atmosphere. Guests love to chill by the pool almost full all day, thanked god I grab my book and enjoy my afternoon there. After a stroll around Ubud Center including Ubud Art Market and Ubud Palace, get myself an afternoon tea a la Alaya Ubud with Indonesian traditional sweet-cakes, have a nice chill in the pool will be recommended.
