Leaving the Bali Hyatt
All good things must come to end, as they say. On our 4th and final day there, we packed our things and prepared for our next stop on Bali.
I had arranged for a car service for our transportation from Sanur to Ubud through Hyatt. It was there waiting when we went to the front desk to check out.
This was the only real blemish about our stay. We must have been checking out at the peak time because the front desk was hammered with several guests departing. They were very unorganized and we waited almost 30 minutes to finalize our stay there. It was rather unfortunate that this was the last memory we had of the Bali Hyatt, but we wouldn’t let it taint our experience.
While we were sad to leave the amazing service of the Bali Hyatt, we were excited to leave the somewhat sleepy beach town of Sanur and head 45 minutes northwest to the cultural center of Bali, Ubud.

When we arrived at the open air lobby (just about everything here is open), we were greeted by the front desk concierge and a very friendly bellman.
Like the Hyatt, we were brought cold scented towels along with welcome drinks.
Sariti, the concierge, told us she would be also our personal assistant for our 5 day stay. Our bags were already on the way to our room while we relaxed and waited.
When she was finished checking us in, the concierge asked to show us around the resort and then to our room.
Sariti walked us around the lush grounds, showing us the infinity pool, the cafe that overlooked it where we could take complimentary afternoon tea, the spa, and the restaurant.
During our stay, we took advantage of almost all the on-site amenities and they were all great.
Also, surprisingly enough, they weren’t overpriced like we’re used to when staying at luxury resorts.
The infinity was absolutely breathtaking. It overlooked a valley and a span of rice terraces along a hillside.
