Great Location for Yoga Buffs!
Summary : Picturesque little resort not far from the Monkey Forest and the Yoga Barn.
Rama Phala Resort & Spa is a pretty little resort located right near the yoga barn – ideal for those who have come to Ubud to escape the rat race – whether its their busy life back home or the craziness of Kuta.
The hotel itself is set in lovely, landscaped gardens and the decor is in traditional Balinese style, the rooms and villas are far enough back from the road so as to not get any noise, though some are a fair walk down through the gardens, which can be tricky to navigate at night. Staff were always helpful and smiling and did their best to make guests feel welcome.
There is a great little pool although during peak time never enough sun lounges and little to no room to manoeuvre around them – which can get tricky when mixing the obligatory holiday cocktail with groups of children who undoubtably want to run around in such a small area.
WiFi was available near the Restaurant and reception and if you were lucky enough (or unlucky depending on how you see it) to have a room close enough to those locations you could also access it.
Food and drinks were average but over-priced for Bali – but there is no shortage of cafes, restaurants and bars close by.
The resort is walking distance to most attractions in Ubud such as the Monkey Forest- although starting to push the distance to get to the main centre of town and the markets if you aren’t one for walking or have small children.
All in all it wasn’t a bad place to stay – I wouldn’t rule out staying again – however with the seemingly never ending supply of places to stay we will probably be looking at alternatives on our next trip.
