Absolutley Wonderful place, great hosts in Ubud central location

True Elephant lover: Mel Ridge
You are looking for the host with the most ... then you should stay at the LadyBamboo and enjoy the great hospitality of Lambert & his wife Reki.

Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It makes so much difference to meet hosts who speak english (plus of course Indonesian, German, and a range of other languages) who are willing to take the time to sit down, enjoy a drink and chat with you.

Lambert has lived and worked in Bali since the mid 80's and his wife Reki is a treasure. Their local knowledge is exceptional and they recommended places to eat, visit and sights to see.

They took us for drives around the area to show us what the real Bali is all about and we were their guests at local restaurants that are off the beaten track but exceptional value and great food.

During our stay there we went to the Elephant Park and the new Safari Park. Although the Elephant Park was good it is not a scratch on the value for money at the Safari Park. You really get a hands on experience with elephants, orangutangs, tigers, lions and lots of other animals at the Safari Park.

Ubud is a great place with plenty to see and do. The weather is a bit milder than the coastline which is great and the Balinese people make you very welcome without the hassle that you encounter around Kuta and Legian.

LadyBamboo is a small boutique resort with all of the amentities that you come to expect in Bali. There is a choice of rooms for all budgets.

The staff are fantastic and Reki makes the best meals in Bali.

This was our first trip to the Ladybamboo and we will definitely be back. We stayed in a huge suite overlooking the pool with our own balcony looking over the river.

Mel & Jeff own a bed and breakfast by themselves close to Melbourne, have a look at their webiste here.

Our Australian-German Bali cooking course at the Ladybamboo Villa was well organised. First all of the ingredients are purchased at the markets of Ubud, which is a fantastic experience. On our return to the hotel all of the spices and other ingredients are explained. Everyone then participates and starts preparing the ingredients. The best part comes when everything is finished and we are able to sample all of our dishes that we have prepared.

Enjoying Cooking

An important priority at LadyBamboo, we offer wonderfully enjoyable onsite cooking classes enabling guests to bring back touches of this fine Balinese art to their own culinary experiences at home.

Ken Parker, another of those fine art photographers revisiting Bali after many years, recently stayed here with his lovely girlfriend Inge blissfully occupying our plush River Suite. Together they participated in four of our regular cooking classes with Villa owner and instructor Reki. Inge says : "What a privilege to share the kitchen with such a good-natured and calming teacher like Reki. It was so much fun to cook beside her playfully joyous sweet self, soaking up all the great tips I possibly could!"

By the end Ken could only agree with what is being discovered again and again by our contented visitors. "There is a subtlety and sophistication in the preparation -- and presentation -- of Balinese food that recalls what I experienced here during my first magical visit almost 11 years ago. The entire staff of LadyBamboo were so delightfully skilled, so warm and friendly, and eternally helpful with anything we ever asked. But now I can only hope that after these excellent classes we will be able to cook these fantastic spicy dishes together in our own kitchen when we're back home in Carmel, California -- missing Bali!"

A magical holiday

On arrival it instantly felt that we had "come home" to LadyBamboo. The warmth and friendliness of your welcome set a scene for a wonderful stay. We have been enchanted by the joy, laughter and genuiness of everyone! LadyBamboo staff are just delightful. They are all so helpful and attentive.
Thank you VERY much for a magical holiday and a wonderful experience for us. One which deepens even further our admiration for the Balinese people and our love of Ubud. Your hospitality created a second home for us and has ensured that our trip will stay in our hearts forever.
