Three articles about the Ubud Royal Family

Here, here, and here are three articles from the Malaysian newspaper The Star on the Ubud royal family. They are quite interesting though suspiciously like a junket-induced advertorial for The Ibah a set of fantastic luxury villas. As usual I soaked up its atmosphere by shelling out a few dollars more than a mixed drink was worth rather than by spending hundreds of dollars on a room. I can assure you the bar, and the gardens, are extravagantly beautiful. It's just down the road from the Tjampuhan Hotel, also a royal holding.

The photo is of Tjokorda Raka Kerthyasa, a prince and the creator of The Ibah who has lived in Australia and married a Sydney kindergarden teacher.
