We spent a 7 nights at Green Spirit villa, in the torquise room right at the botom, facing a breath taking tropical jungle. When we arrived at Green Spirit villa, we were guided to the reception. The view of the tropical jungle, pool & hotel blew us away. Check in was smooth, and the staff transferred our heavy luggage to our rooms. They are strong as an ox. We had a nice torquise standard room downstairs. This was our favourite room of them all after viewing them all (just down to personal choice). We were shown our room, and felt nature breathing inside the room, with a spectacular view of the tropical jungle. Now warning! I love nature and am use to living with nature. If you are afraid of frogs, lizards, massive beatles, 1000's of ants, mosquitos, scorpions and the loud ambient sounds of nature, this is not for you. The Green Spirit villa is a special healing place in Ubud we loved it. This place ill heal your soul. They have access to good spiritual healers. This is Pure heaven. As we inspected our room we could see thousands of ants crawling up the wall behind our bed, on the wardrobe posts and windows etc. On the floor couch as I sat down, I pulled one of the cushions up to check what's underneath and a baby scorpion was inches from my bottom. Some people like to complain about this, what do they expect? This is a living nature environment. We carried with us anti bug, ants, mosquito spray and sprayed the areas that we saw the bugs and we were ok. Outside the room and inside the room, nature will frequently take a visit in the way of frogs and lizards. They are harmless. Our room was clean. There was not one bug in our bed behind our mosquito net. The bathroom windows could do with a little maintenance and room front door. Apart from that this place is unique. Breakfast was nice but the hygene and condition of the kitchen they prepared our food in was not clean. NOT! CLEAN! But we never caught any stomach bugs, not one of us. My partners parents and brother stayed in the other two standard rooms at the bottom far end. When it rained here the sound of the rain falling on the tropical jungle is theraputic. One word of warning! If you are walking down the stairs to any of the standard rooms take great care, as it is very slippery and dangerous. My partner's mother slipped and hit her head hard as she landed. She was very lucky. She is overweight and has not got good walking balance. Wet stairs didn't bother me one bit. This is nature and heaven. Who cares about slippery stairs. I just thought I would let you know so you are aware. The staff were wonderful. We found the pool too high in chlorine. So high that it stung our eyes and irritated our skins after spending 10 min in the water. The chlorine strength was imediately noticable entering the pool. What a experience, we will definately return. Just some maintenance needed around the villa, lower the chlorine levels of the pool and them to improve the standard of the kitchen. Advice for mosquitos. Wear bright or white clothing, especially at night. Do not eat so many sweet things, mosquitos love sweet blood. Take antihisamines a few weeks before travel. Purchase your insect repellents in Bali, they work the best. We are in Bali again this year. I Shot some wonderful proffessional video footage of this place. We would like to thank the staff for their warm hospitality, making our stay enjoyable.
