Sometimes accommodation does really matter. I lucked out with booking the Sandat room at Kebun Indah, part of the Alam Indah group of properties. A gorgeous room that fulfills all your tropical decor fantasies, I practically had the pool all to myself and breakfast and afternoon tea delivered daily. Staff were very friendly and the site was secure. Set amongst a rice field and close to a creek bed, Kebun Indah is located in what I would call the quiet end of town but still only a short walk to restaurants, shops and the Monkey Forest.
