The pool down near the spa was amazing and well worth the experience. We also had time to embark on the nature walk which was informative and a great way to spend some time.
Overall this experience is one of the best I have had in all of my international travels.
A big thank you to the great staff who looked after us.

Set on a hillside and surrounded by ten hectares of tropical gardens, this resort is nearby to Ubud Village and the Ayung …More
we have just stayed two nights in the hotel. Overall I think it is worth the money.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. They explained everything very clearly and even told us that there was a short cut to Ubud central which would took only twenty minutes. The hotel also provides free bicycles for hiking. The room facilities are new and up to the standard of a 4.5-star hotel. The breakfast is also adequate. In particuar, the BBQ pork is not very salty, unlike that in other hotels in Bali.
As it is surrounded by trees and fields, mosquitos are unavoidable. However, if you are caucious and always remember to close the doors, it is not a problem.
As we went there in a low season, there are few customers. therefore, we felt the hotel was quite exclusive.
recommend to those who would like to stay in Ubud and would rent a car for other activities, such as white water rafting and sight seeing arround Ubud.
Ubud is a must see art of Bali and this hotel, although a little out of the centre, is perfect. Rice paddies and beautiful friendly staff make this a wonderful second home. We didn't even notice there was no TV in the room till we left! So much to see and do, it is not needed.

The location of the Waka Di ume in Bali is very close to the centre of the Ubud village. The resort is situated by the side …More
I can definitely say that this was the best place we've ever stayed in. The staff are out of this world, they all call you by your first name, extremely helpful and very pleasant. The villa was stunning, having your own private garden with a small pool was brilliant, not to far out of Ubud pretty cheap to get a taxi in and out. Ideal for couples but probably not suitable for young families.
Just mesmerized as our driver drove into the resort compound where all the landscaping turns our minds fresh and relaxed. We were greated by real nice staffs who were at our service with a smiling face each time we needed their assistance. The highlight was the villa that we stayed in. It was a valley view villa with a pool. It was just great, like having a balinese bungalow out of nowhere. Everywhere you turned it was green giving you a calm and soothing feel. Room cleanliness could be improved slightly though. In overall we really loved it..!!!
2 nights in Ubud seem too short when you stay at Plataran. A fabulous hotel that's worth every single dollar! Beautiful lobby, polite staff and mind-blowing views of the paddy fields from both their swimming pools. The room was clean and very well furnished - sexy bathroom as well! Nic, the hotel manager deserves extra credit. We couldn't get a single scooter as it was peak season. Nic took us in his car and went looking for a friend who runs a scooter rental company - all this at 8pm when he could've easily said wasn't his duty time anymore. We were given a personal scooter and even offered a tour around his beautiful house to get the Balinese feel. Location of the hotel is strategic - close by to local attractions. Stay here if you're in Ubud - no regrets!
