The private plunge pool at the Toya Villas in Kajane Mua
The service at Kajane is outstanding. Every morning, a full breakfast — we had our choice of one of seven menus (American, Indonesian, English, Japanese A or B, Daily or Continental) — was served to us at our villa. Every menu included some sort of tropical fresh fruit juice. A driver was available at our disposal to ferry us to and from any location in Ubud of our choice. In the afternoons, we had tea along with traditional Balinese cakes (which, by the way, I thought were delicious because they incorporated coconut, and I love coconut in just about anything). And, God bless, there was free wireless internet, and you know how much I love me some internet.
Getting breakfast ready at our villa
By the end of our stay at Kajane, I wanted to stay there forever. I’d even picked out a corner of the room to hide in, under a rattan basket. That’s reasonable, right? To live in a corner of a hotel room, undetected by hotel staff? I mean, it’s not like I’m working or anything right now, and the hubby could totally visit me. In Bali.
