Alam Shanti - Monkey "problem"?

Jump to last reply

I'm booked at the Ubud's Alam Shanti (Yamuna room) for January 2014. Some girlfriends and I would be there to celebrate a birthday.

Now, critters and insects are ok... but I'm a little (ok very!) leery of monkeys, given the open concept. I've read various reviews of monkeys dropping by the verandah to "share" breakfast and other close encounters. For those who have been there, is this a common occurrence? How avoidable are these creatures?

I'm very close to cancelling my booking just worrying about this issue...

I'd appreciate some comments or experiences from those who have been at Alam Shanti before.

Much thanks.
