We booked the Umalas Hotel and Residence as a last ditch effort when we decided to have a quick trip to Bali. The price was excellent and the rooms were fantastic. Clean, big enough, new and well appointed. The Umalas is a little out of the way from Seminyaka and the beach but so what it is only $3 in a taxi to seminyak or free on the shuttle. The accommodation quality makes up for it being not at the beach. The area is excellent no sellers driving you mad and couple of shops, few eating places and a great massage shop. We had a little grandson with us and it was perfect for a family, the staff were helpful and nothing was too muych trouble, from pickups at the airport to a cot in our room. I will be going there again in January.
