It has been almost 4 years since I last stayed at the Ananda Cottages Annexe in Ubud, Bali. This is my 5th or 6th visit, so that confirms how much I love Ananda and the family owners.

On our most recent trip to Bali, with all good intentions and having booked particular room numbers, overlooking one of the pools, our favourite room had an unsightly building site next door. Our friend and neighbour was joining us at Ananda for a week’s break so we wanted rooms with an adjoining balcony.
The Annexe was suggested as an alternative. This is a small group of rooms, with pool that is a 500 metre walk from the main complex. It has its own pool and overlooks fertile and working rice paddies. Because we were visiting in February – the low season – we had the entire annexe to ourselves. Delightful.
The best room by far is Villa A; this is not a villa, but a large standard room with a generous balcony overlooking the rice paddies. It has an adjoining balcony with Villa B, also a standard room. We are not entirely sure if the Annexe is where you would want to be if it was fully occupied, as it could get a bit crowed and noisy around the pool, but would be ideal for a large group travelling together, in fact large yoga groups often take over the entire annexe. It is perfect if travelling in February however.
