We're in our third day at Villa Kusuma Sari and already bumming out that we have to leave in two days. This is a hidden gem near Ubud, two one bedroom villas plus the owner's so it's definitely intimate and feels like being the house guest of a very privileged friend. Our villa is spacious and private with a huge bathroom including indoor and outdoor showers and outdoor tub. There is a lovely terrace overlooking the pool. The garden is spectacular here and our hostess gave us an impromptu tour of the orchids, unusual flowers and, best of all, the Balinese herbal plants in the kitchen garden. Our days are spent in Ubud, about a 15 minute drive away and we return in the afternoons to the refreshing swimming pool. There are several dining pavilions here and we enjoyed dinner here two evenings. We've arranged a special dinner for our last evening. Our friends are joining us from their Ubud hotel and we will have a Balinese feast with live gamelan band. Thank you, Ketut, Made and the rest of the crew!
