Beautiful gardens, gorgeous buildings, a stunning pool and expansive views across the river gorge, all seems perfect. And it was, except for some surprising minor failings. Breakfast was in a beautiful space but the pre-paid meal was a little less than room prices would have suggested. Similarly, whilst every anti-mosquito aid was at hand in the rooms, the mosquito nets weren't able to fully cover the bed, ending up scrunched uncomfortably around our upper body and heads. And of course who wants to raise the problem after crawling into bed following a long day?
That having been said, the place is nevertheless beautiful and a pleasure to stay at being small and quite intimate and I'd certainly consider returning as its a short walk to local galleries and only slightly farther into Ubud centre.
We stayed with friends in a deluxe pool villa which was equally well equipped for both couples.

Lovely food, staff, spa and experiences in this amazing hotel. the only problem was that we should have extended our stay. it is fairly close to everything in ubud. they run a shuttle bus hourly to and from town. I recommend it with pleasure!

We had a four night stay & enjoyed this as a base. There are lots of steps, but it is built into the side of a jungle ravine, hard to work around that. The rooms/villas are 8yrs old, by bali standards they are excellent, but they are beginning to tire and could do with a refresh if they want to retain the ratings. Location is a little out of town, not a bad thing, best to get a cab, about 20k rupiah for the trip.

We booked a villa which was lovely...had a private pool and has 2 floors. A king bed downstairs and 2 singles upstairs, each having its own bathroom.
I have to say that while hotels in Indonesia are very elaborate and beautiful, they are not very practical. Ubud is a very hilly place. I can safely say all the hotels are not wheelchair friendly and they have very steep stairs. Even in the building itself, the stairs are not standard depth and most of them are very steep and deep.
There is no safety fence around the pool and the pool is quite deep, about 4 1/2 feet throughout. Luckily we have no kids.
There is no lift in this hotel. The rooms are all downhill from the reception and the walk is long.
Most buildings in Indonesia are dimly lit, so if one is afraid of lizards (like I am)..oh boy, they are huge and plentiful.
The staff are very nice and accommodating. They really know what hospitality is all about. Most of them try their best to please. If you can't have breakfast at the restaurant, they will cart it down the many flights of stairs and bring it to you in lovely baskets and lay it out so beautifully. Nothing is too inconvenient for them.
Overall, the staff make this place a good stay.

We stayed at Pita Maha with two teenagers and had originally booked the duplex villa, when we arrived we found that this wasn't suitable, due to it being to noise. They changed our booking into two single villas. We paid a bit extra but it was organised very quickly and without any questions asked. The staff was delightful, always eager to please. The villas are not new but very clean and well kept. The public pool is devine and the whole experience for all of us was one of feeling pampered and cared for.Pita Maha offers a regular shuttle service to town - drop of and pick up and free shuttle service to the airport.
