We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pesantian, surrounded by rice fields and yet only a short drive from the centre of Ubud. Our room was nicely furnished with high quality linen and lovely views of the rice fields. Chef Santika was always available and his team were friendly and curtious. Widunu happily offered to guide us around the rice fields one afternoon and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing his stories and learning about the Balinise traditions and how the crops are grown and harvested. It was refreshing to experience the peace and tranquility of such a beautiful area, be in touch with the local people and really experience Bali. Pesantian ticked all the boxes for us and we look forward to our next visit and tasting some more of Chef Santika's delicious food.
