...And that is just the start. I expect a passive-aggresive response from the owner based on his responses to prior reviews. Let's start with the positives first, because the list of those is minimal: +Outstanding location, on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The sound of the waves is so serene with the lawns of the property being well maintained +The... More

the place is just awesome, the pool is very pleasant and we have the pleasure to interact with Dominique the owner. A very friendly guy and his hotel is wonderfully located. Nevertheless, the rooms need to be a bit refreshed, the breakfast is ridiculously light, so you need to purchase extras if you don't want to stay hungry, and the... More

Use to love Gajah Mina. Heard the wife took over for the husband. Husband should never have allowed this. Looks like a pool hall now instead of the romantic, charming place it use to be. The new chef is not good. The food was not good at all. Hardly any sauce or dressing on anything. Everything over cooked. Will not... More

Dear Sir Thank you for your review . It come to me as a bit of a surprise. You know things , i was not aware . And i have managed Gajah Mina for 14 years . Would that be a personal vendetta maybe ? There is no neon lighting in the restaurant. The billiard table has been there for... More

Just returned from spending 4 relaxing days at Gajah Mina Resort. Despite a few critical comments, the positive aspects outweighed for me: location on the hill top with breathtaking views over Balian beach, charming and clean bungalows with Balinese decor, privacy and intimate atmosphere due to small size of resort. There were a few downsides to it as well though:... More

My 2 adult children and I spent 4 nights at the Gajah Mina Resort in May 2014. They had both stayed there a few years ago and recommended it for a family holiday. It has deteriorated since, I feel the owner/manager is not very interested as he was unaware that the airconditioner, refrigerator, and safe were broken/out of order in... More

Fabulous resort in a beautiful location away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta/Seminyak. Very quiet and peaceful...the accomodation is amazing, pools are beautiful and the food was exceptional. A massage is a must...the spa hut is perched up on the cliffs overlooking the beaches and ocean.

Spectacular and remote setting make this a must visit on your Bali vacation. The hotel has the perfect location perched on the cliff looking out to both beaches, one, the surf beach, the other 30 KMs of deserted black sand. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is peaceful. We were lucky to see a traditional Balinese dance and music... More

The Gajah Mina is superb; we booked three nights but once there immediately regretted not staying for a longer period. The villas are spacious and very comfortable, beautiful pools, fantastic food, professional and friendly staff. It was perfect for a laid back family like ours wanting to have a relaxing holiday but also very romantic too. Fantastical setting, certainly one... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gajah Mina is an exclusive Bali holiday destination on the picturesque South West coast of Bali, not far from the renowned Tanah Lot temple in Tabanan. An intimate boutique hotel of ten independent vacation villas nestled among tropical gardens and scenic rice paddies.Gajah Mina overlooks its own private beach carved into the volcanic rock. The setting is spectacular, natural caves and ancient stone carvings offering romantic walks across adjacent cliff top, headlands, rice paddies, coconut groves and deserted beaches. It is the perfect place for a honeymoon or romantic getaway.Each villa discreetly nestles within its own walled garden offering view across rice paddies, palm fringed gardens and the rugged Balian beach coastline. Private terraces invite you to lounge amidst the clouds and the crown of palm.Tucked in between rice fields, the 27 meters long pool is built around the shape of a rice terrace.A stroll toward the ocean lead to a small cape covered with thick alang - alang grasses, ending on a cliff from where view extend towards both end of the island. One of Gajah mina two headlands is maintained as a protected area for the Water Monitor, a timid unaggressive lizard which can grow to 1.7m in length. You can make wonderful walks on the 30 km long deserted beach. ... more   less
