Interaction with guests
We have a staff of eleven that includes a full time manager and two skilled cooks. Our aim is to please our guests and offer them great service and food. We are close enough to Ubud's cultural offerings as well as it's international restaurants and world class shopping but just the right distance from town to enjoy the peace and serenity that comes with living on the rice fields in the traditional village of Sebali. We are about a 45 minute glorious walk into Ubud along the famous Campuhan Ridge. We are close to the Elephant Safari Park and to rafting and cycling adventures.
