    It looks a bit far from the center of town. I stayed at Kajeng Bungalows last November and thought it was pretty good, very nice rooms, decent sized pool and hot water showers. It cost 150K/night and includes breakfast. The location is good too... within walking distance of both the market and the rice paddies.

    That joint looks pretty nice -- may have to do a research trip next weekend ;) Though as SBE says it is a hefty hike from the centre of things.

    What sort of pricerange you looking at? Flash in Ubud can be very very flash...

    Thanks - good tip about the distance to the centre

    I would say price around the 640k IDR / 70USD mark would be good as it's for a honeymoon... There are plenty of high end places I have seen there for sure - something that is big on arts and crafts would be ideal.

    Cheers

    Alam Indah (part of the small Alam chain--there's also Alam Shanti and Alam Jiwa) is by far the most romantic place I've ever stayed, and is ~$75 a night. It's just outside of town, but walkable through the monkey forest. Ask for an upper-story room overlooking the paddies.

    Stayed a couple of nights in De Ubud Luxury Villa at the top of Monkey Forest road. Luxury 2 bedroom villa with lovely pool and ambience with great "Butler" service. A real treat. Expensive but fantastic. (Approx A$460 per night)

    There are some really nice looking exactly flashpacker rentals on tripadvisor:

    We stayed in one that was $25 at the time, a little pricier now:

    For $70 per night there is only one choice in my view and that is Tegal Sari. It's right next door to greenfield and the location isn't really out of town. It's just at the southern end of town. Around there you have some good restaurants, a yoga studio, the monkey forest. At the other end of town, you have more restaurants, the market and that's about it. I don't think it matters a great deal. Especially since it's an easy walk to the market from that area AND Tegal Sari provide free transport within Ubud if you can't be bothered walking. The rooms to go for are the wooden room or the deluxe rooms.

    The main reason I mention Tegal Sari is because of the service. It truly is excellent. The views at Greenfield are identical to those of Tegal Sari and I suspect the rooms are of a similar quality. If the services matches that of Tegal Sari, it might be worth a look!
