Ubud Lestari Bungalow

At the end of a lane off busy Jalan Monkey Forest, Ubud Lestari Bungalow is a delightful surprise tucked away on the edge of the rice fields.

The narrow path (lit a night) leads first to the standard rooms in a brick building, two up, two down, then through a gate past the tremendous swimming pool, to the suite rooms facing the rice fields, and continuing to the large Leastari suite rooms bordering the river.

Spiffy rooms are fabulous value.

Prices, views, and room facilities rise / get better / increase as you head towards the back. Rooms are spacious and airy, with a pleasant relaxing ambience. The harmonious and tastefully restrained decor style reflects the influence of the mixed Japanese and Balinese family owners. Tiled, spotless, and comfortable, all rooms are air-con and equipped with a safe and well stocked minibar.

Leastari suites add a flatscreen TV, but we’d rather look at the fabulous view. Comfortable sleep-inducing twin or double beds sport clean white linens and oddly a blanket between sheets, rather than a doona. Built-in storage varies from room to room, and as well as being functional is aesthetically pleasing too. Some rooms offer furnished outdoor terraces, and a few with built-in daybeds, whichever it is — grab that holiday novel and escape. Deep white tubs are standard in all the hot-water bathrooms, most with a separate rain shower. And you can leave your hairdryer at home too. Toilets are partitioned from the tubs, and the fancy rooms are decked out with a separate dressing room. Whichever your budget, all the rooms are great, but if you are staying in the standard rooms, it’s worth paying the extra 50,000 for those facing the rice-field if they’re available.

Another angle on the pool. Terrible!

The frangipani-shaded infinity swimming pool invites you to gaze at the adjacent rice paddy and watch the rice grow as you soak away the worries of the world, but is also a decent size for a short lap if you’re feeling energetic. A small wading area for kids is sectioned at one end. A handful of cushioned deck chairs and a shady pavilion furnished with table and chairs are excellent spots for a poolside coldie. And that rice paddy view — it’s the same one you’ll get if you stay at five-star Komaneka, across the field, for a substantially less outlay, so pat yourself on the back for finding such a bargain.

Staff at Ubud Lestari Bungalow are friendly, but seemed a bit vague (perhaps we asked the wrong questions). Breakfast and WiFi are included in the rate. We loved Ubud Lestari Bungalow and can’t really find fault with it. It’s a super midrange option, and because of that is very popular — you’ll need to book ahead. If they are full, you could try your luck at Tegal Sari on Jalan Hanoman.
