It’s odd how we stumble upon gems online, like our next accommodation pick in Ubud – Kakiang Bungalows. The hotel’s website has two language options, English and Japanese, while prices are quoted in Japanese Yen; which makes us think that Kakiang Bungalows heavily targets the Japanese market. The website offers online reservation of rooms, which makes the booking process quick and simple.

Tucked in a corner along Jalan Pengosekan, you’ll miss it if not for the bright store front of the famed Kakiang Bakery. The reception area is a little way in, just to the left of the bakery. Upon arrival, guests are offered welcome drinks while soft traditional Balinese music is played in the background.

A quick traipse across a small well kept courtyard led us to the two storey building where our rooms were located. Standard rooms are on the lower level of the building, while the Superior rooms occupy the upper level. Further back is the swimming pool with two adjoining Poolside villas. We picked a Superior room as it offered a bit more privacy and had a balcony overlooking some paddy fields. We paid about 6000 Yen (Rp.640,000) per room, and based on our past experience with Tegal Sari (reviewed here), we went in with high expectations.

The room was clean, comfortable, and adequately furnished. It’s a big plus that the room comes with television and cable channels. Breakfast was served at the balcony, which was something to look forward to everyday. Imagine savoring bread and pastries from the hotel’s own bakery, sipping tea while gazing at the nearby paddy fields and listening to the sounds of nature – it was pure bliss. One note, it would have been excellent if the breakfast servings were more generous. Afternoon tea was also served, usually a cake or pastry from the Kakiang Bakery, accompanied by either tea or coffee.

The hotel is located within walking distance to several well-known spots such as the Bebek Bengil restaurant and the monkey forest, as well as amenities like a laundry service and a 24-hour convenience store. As with many other hotels, free transportation within Ubud was provided.
