Medewi Bay retreat really is an escape from the noise and mayhem offered in Kuta or other resorts close to Denpasar. Beautifully landscaped and tranquil setting, delightful, friendly helpful staff. We spent 2 weeks there this August and really loved the place. Already planning our next visit. Menu is great, especially the Balinese and Indonesian food. Wine is expensive, but... More

We spent 7 nights at this resort and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, although our 1 bedroom apartment (Rose 2) needed renovation. The TV was an old tube version and was virtually unviewable, which wasn't so bad as there was nothing to watch on it except Indonesian TV anyway! There was Australia Channel at the bar, so able to watch the... More

This is our second stay at Medewi Bay Retreat and we loved it more this time. The hotel is older style however most rooms are brand new or renovated. They are large and spacious and well appointed. The hotel is 2.5 hrs from the airport and relatively remote so come prepared for relaxation and solitude. The Medewi point beach is... More
