Nice place, but some details to be aware of...

We booked in a bit of a hurry and didn't realise: - its 30mins out of Ubud in the middle of nowhere (only 3 runs of courtesy bus per day, but you can taxi back) - restaurant is very good, but vegan only and no alcohol (would have been nice to have a few non-vegan and simple alcohol options) - its nestled into forrest overlooking a beautiful stream - but mosquitos could be an issue in rainy season. All in all, one for the more hard-core health retreat person.

Pros: Nice resort with great food
Cons: Really over priced - $90 to do a yoga class in Bali?!?!
Value: Outrageous price, Exorbitant, Rip-off; Nice but not worth the money - there are better places that are better value for money. Why pay more than western prices in Bali?
