We stayed in Ubud for 2 days and one night at the Gaya villas. the pros are the room was nice and set away from the street. Calm peaceful and clean room. We had access to the common pool and when were there in November 2014, very few people at the resorts so it was low traffic and very pleasant. The staff were very sweet and kind. There is an outdoor shower which i loved - given the weather and the secluded nature of where the shower was located - off of the bath room. We also did a massage which the technique was great but the weather was too warm for the room - no air conditioning - so made it less enjoyable. Also they lost power during the massage so even the fan stopped working.
The cons are the rooms / resort are a bit dated. Its a bit far from the heart of Ubud and the cultural center. Not really walkable in the toughest of climates (pre rainy season). The bathroom was the top disaster - drainage system was terrible. With the shower area facing the pot - the water from the show would not drain and made the entire bathroom a water pool - not cool or comfortable. When we called housekeeping - they were able to clean it up but the same issue happened post night shower and the next day as well. Old drainage system - need serious reworking.
The restaurant located in the premise was also not super tasty - was ok. Pricy for the quality of food.
All in all i would go back and stay if I cannot experience another hotel in Ubud but my preference would be to go closer to the center of town.
