Bali Ubud Indonesia

wagtailgirlsannakernI06A1932wagtailgirlsannakern_ubud2We stayed 15 min by car north of Ubud. Close to Tegallalang, DD Ubud Jungle Villas. Great place to stay. We had our own cabin with beautiful jungle view. 70 stairs to the the reception. Great exercise in the heat! Breakfast was served on our porch. Any other meal too if wanted. Peaceful dinner with all the sounds of the jungle. Friendly staff and a refreshing pool. They have a free shuttle to Ubud two times a day. We liked the country side outside of Ubud better that the actual Ubud. Ubud had a great market though and the monkey forest! wagtailgirlsannakern_ubud9wagtailgirlsannakern_ubud6wagtailgirlsannakernI06A2119wagtailgirlsannakern_ubud3wagtailgirlsannakernI06A0298wagtailgirlsannakern_ubud1wagtailgirlsannakernI06A0450Tegallalang Rice Terrace.
