Eat, Play, Love and Stay at Green Field Hotel & Bungalows @ Ubud, Bali


    Following the release of movie “Eat, Pray, Love” which was partially filmed in Ubud, Bali and based on the novel of the same name by Elizabeth Gilbert, Ubud is probably about to be overrun. It will be a popular destination for those in search of an inner balance and spiritual fulfilment in life. And perhaps in hope of finding the love of their life too, just like how Elizabeth Gilbert (Julia Robert) met the sexy Brazilian hunk Felipe (Javier Bardem) in the island.

    Ubud is indeed a less commercialized part of Bali Island. The people here is living in the beautifully lush surrounds and has a very strong cultural presence.

    During our previous trip to Bali, we chose to spent a good two days at Ubud, Bali. The first night we rested our weary feet at Tegal Sari and on the second night we settled down at Green Field Hotel & Bungalows.

    Being situated just next to each other, Green Field shares the same magnificent rice paddy field as Tegal Sari. The owner of Green Field is a well known Balinese artist. His artwork can be found at every nook and corner of the hotel.

    Soon after arriving we were all served delicious welcome drinks. Check in was quick and there was this Taiwanese lady who works at the reception. She is a great help in giving tips and advises. The hotel also offers a free shuttle service into town and return everyday from about 8am to 10pm.

    There is a coffee table and chairs at the verandah. I can just sit here all day watching the farmers at work, the cows plowing and the ducks waddling past the rice fields.

    Our room was spacious and lovely but the king size bed was a bit on the hard side. The marble carvings around the bathtub gave me an eerie feeling too. Well, it was just me.

    Green Field also takes pride in their eco friendly salt water infinitypool. It would be great to take a dip and relax! If only we have more time…

    Just a little advise here: Try to allocate more time to just relax and unwind in Bali. It would be fun to just do nothing, hang around the hotel and visit some art galleries/museums.

    We had a nice mix of fresh fruits with yogurt and honey.

    Overall the main courses were not as bad as I was expecting, but tastes wise much room for improvement You can opt to have your breakfast to be served at your room verandah or the pool side.

    Overall, we had an enjoyable stay at Green Field. We like it for its friendly staff, great location, beautiful rice-field view and spacious rooms. However, our votes go to Tegal Sari in terms of value and room quality.

    EAT: Seafood @ Jimbaran Bay, Pork Ribs @ Naughty Nuri’s Warung & Grill, Babi Guling @ Ibu Oka, Bebek Bengil
