This morning, we left the now-familiar streets of Legian and the Mercure Legian and headed to Ubud. Specifically, we went to the Best Western Premier Agung Resort Ubud. Getting there took a while: it is approximately 37km between the hotels (according to Google Maps), but it took us two and a half hours. We’ll need to make sure we allow plenty of time when heading back to the airport on Friday!
The resort itself is interesting and has quite a beautiful layout. It is spread across a number of levels and a number of discrete buildings. Some key resort functions, such as the lobby and restaurant, are under a roof but completely open on the sides. I’ll wait and see how the service is, so far it’s been quite good, but not quite at the same level as that which we experienced at the Mercure.
Our room came with a number of nice touches. These included a few flowers on the bed and bath, a plate of fresh-cut fruit, and a good selection of toiletries and items. In addition, we were apparently upgraded to an Executive room, which was nice. Never having stayed here before, I can’t be sure what the difference is, but we are certainly in a nice big room, we have a massive shower and a bath, and plenty of pillows!
I shall try to get a few more pictures of the resort at some point. I’m looking forward to trying out their breakfast tomorrow morning!
