I returned to Bali for a nostalgia trip – forty-one years since my first and only visit. I knew it would have changed in that time, and was warned that I would not enjoy the comparison. After much research, I decided Devi’s Place, and beautiful Penestanan, would be more like the real and old Bali I love so much. It was even better than I imagined! For two weeks I stayed in the gorgeous Jepun Bungalow – perfect for a solo traveller or couple. Large rooms, comfy and pretty traditional decor, rice paddy views and breezes, shared pool with private entrance, private garden, birdsong, and attentive, unobtrusive staff. Location excellent. I walked up and down hills and stairs or through rice fields – soaking it all in. Car or scooter taxi into Ubud, but preferred village life. Cantika Zest organic spa fantastic. Local warungs delicious. The locals happy and beautiful.
Can’t wait to return – and soon!
Highly recommend Devi’s Place.
