Ubud is Uber-Cool
We stayed at Suly Resort which is outside of Ubud. We ended up staying 4 more extra days in Ubud area because we really loved the place.
Ubud is a large town full of cool cafes, yoga studios, and clothing stores. My favorite place to eat was Sari Organiks. It was very tricky to get to (thanks to Jakki who provided great details).
Here are her directions:
From Ubud Market head west on Ubud Main Road. Pass Bisma St and on the left there is a steep driveway. Up the driveway you will see a small sign that says Sari Organik. Follow this narrow path about 800 meters. It looks like you are heading deeper into the rice paddies but you will see “white” tourists walking or hitching a ride from locals. You can not drive a car down this path but you can a motorbike. Seb and I took the motorbike and had a few sketchy moments where we thought we would drive off the path into the rice paddies. It is well worth it though!
Overall very impressed with Ubud. Lots of French people though…. ha ha.
