Penestanan Kelod has become a very hip little village with its own yoga studio, meditation centre, restaurants, shops and bakeries! So you do not have to venture very far to be reminded of the Ubud culture.
Only accessible by scooter or on foot, about 10 minutes to walk, it is far from the bustling streets Ubud is known for, but this all adds to the wonderful tranquility and magic of your stay.
