Our room at Kajane Mua Villa in Ubud, Bali
After our stay in Cubadak Island, we journeyed on to Bali, on the eastern side of Indonesia. We weren't sure what to expect, even though we know many people who have chosen the island for their honeymoon. For whatever reason, I'd had visions of Bali being the kind of place where the hubby and I would get our picture taken standing under a paper flower archway with B-A-L-I spelled out in sequined letters. I don't know, maybe something similar happened to me when I was in the ninth grade on a cruise with my family in Cozumel, and maybe that memory haunts me still.
However, just moments after our arrival at Kajane Mua Villa (pronounced kuh-JAH-nay MOO-ah), we were Bali converts. The villa is located in central Ubud, the tropical, mountainous region of Bali, and it's set back from the main road, charmingly named Monkey Forest Street due to its location, well, next to a forest full of monkeys. A little palm tree-lined trail leads you back to the villas, nestled among a ride paddy terrace.
