Photo of Ladybamboo Villas
Tucked away in a quiet location at the end of a lane off Jalan Kajeng (the road with names in the cement), the hotel overlooks Mumbul River, yet is only 200 metres from Ubud Palace.

Ladybamboo Villas is a little off the mark with their name, as villas is a misnome —two rows of longhouse-style rooms rather edge a small, but lush garden leading to a swimming pool on the edge of the escarpment. The freestanding “riverside suite”, however could possibly get away with the “villa” term. The good-sized airy air-con rooms seem less like a hotel as they are individually styled and full of terrific details with artworks, interesting paint treatments in some rooms, plus restful nooks and colourful comfortable bedding. There are however some quirky (and sometimes not very practical) placement of amenities—in one room the minibar is in the bathroom, and small TVs are mounted at odd angles, some which may require a yoga position to watch. Other amenities include safety deposit boxes and a small library. If you prefer not to use air-con, rooms are equipped with ceiling fans and windows have mosquito screens. Bathrooms are spotless and as with the bedrooms, have fun individual touches.

Furnished terraces offer additional relaxation options. An open restaurant near the pool serves the included afternoon tea and breakfast, and word is, it’s very good. Ladybamboo Villas offers cooking classes too. The smallish bright blue swimming pool is surrounded with flourishing foliage and offers a handful of sun-loungers to catch some rays. Staff offer advice on local activities, warm service and big smiles. We love the non-cookie cutter feel of this cosy hotel, so if an informal style appeals, Ladybamboo Villas may be the right fit.

Good nearby alternatives for a similar chunk of cash include Ubud Sari Health Retreat, further north on Jalan Kajeng, and Mahanadewi Villas on Jalan Sriwedari. Tetirah on Jalan Suweta is also worth considering.
