On paper, this seems to be the perfect romantic getaway...a landscape touched by gods, a world-class luxury brand / hotel management company and bricks-&-mortars designed by Antonio Citterio. Bulgari, Bali, almost could have been the perfect resort...except for one "minor" fault...service.
While the service is not offensive, it lacks the personable and customized ambience that other top-notch resorts offer. You get about the same amount of attention as if you are wearing shorts and sneakers browsing through a Bulgari jewelry store. If you pay this amount of money for a stay, you expect much more. During my stay, I filed a minor complaint on housekeeping. I repeatedly (3x) asked for a response...if not an apology. None was offered.
Since this resort is blessed in so many ways, it definitely attracts the wedding crowd. If you enjoy privacy, then cross your fingers on not meeting the wedding entourage. The packaged weddings seem to be a big draw here. It's great for the newlyweds and the wedding party; not so great if you are on your special romantic getaway.
I do have compliments for this resort. The cliff-side view is breath-taking. The 75 degree tram down to the beach was spectacular. The Italian restaurant, Il Ristorante, was fantastic (BTW...if you want Indonesian food, try Warung at Alila not far away). The villas in a typical Balinese garden setting were beautiful...though the dark furnitures in a humid tropic weather do not age well.
I might sound overly critical. However, I am entitled at the rates they charge. There are simply many other resorts on this beautiful island which offer more for less.
