Touring the Ubud area, one will often find unique restaurants and galleries, in the most unexpected places. Stopping for a quiet drink / snack, helps to break up a trip and one great palce to stop is Gaya Fusion Of Senses.

Gaya Fusion Of Senses is located along Jl. Raya Sayan, the main road that runs south from Kedewatan. Amid lovely surroundings, the gallery features displays of modern art from domestic and foreign artists that last 2 weeks.

The gallery is set in the ground floor of a 2- storey building and is very spacious. When I visited the artist on display was Made Wianta, who seems to specialize in large abstract works. This one made of nails. Here’s the description.

By the entrance to the gallery is a display of goods, made on the premises including tableware and decorations. This stuff isn’t cheap, a vase I looked at cost $135. One of the staff told me they can handle large orders, and many of their customers are from Europe.

The top floor of the gallery is actually a bar and restaurant, which offered rice field views. I had a gado gado (steamed veggies and rice with peanut sauce) for 20,000rp. Trendy music created a relaxing atmosphere, not hard in a tropical climate.

Directly behind the gallery are 3 villas. The asking price for these is $120 per night but the staff hastened to tell me I could bargain.

This place is a great stop, off on a road trip and makes for a very pleasant detour on a day trip to Ubud. Maybe I can pursued and them, to display my first effort at painting some time later!
