My mom and I just stayed for 2 nights at the Cili Emas Resort for a north Bali experience. I had stayed in this same village 5 years ago and really enjoyed the area. I stayed at Gia Oasis back then and wanted to experience another similar family style dinner arrangement to meet some nice people again. Plus, I love the waterfall and the Bali Sea is a change from the hussle and bustle of the southern part of Bali.
We stayed in a little villa with two twin beds, and a large bathroom. The welcome is amazing, and there are flowers everywhere! The food is also wonderful and fresh. The sunset is so pretty here, and locals on the beach were adorable. We brought American gifts to share with the local children which was a big hit!
The owners are very friendly and even walked us to our car after our stay. The manager "Yoman"- is so helpful and kind. We booked a trip to the Waterfall for the day, they packed my mom and I snacks and towels, umbrellas and water in a little bag.
The resort is very environmentally friendly, clean and has cute personal touches. For instance, a little battery light and mosquito incense lite delivered each night at our veranda. The bathroom is so "Bali" stones, flowers, outdoors, roomy... and a bit slippery- so be careful! The décor is also quite charming. There are special touches of charm everywhere at Cili!
We loved the ponds, the pool setting, and people that we met at the Resort.
The resort is little hard to find, so make sure you carry the phone number with your driver. There is a small "creek" to cross which my friend bottomed out and cracked his bumper getting to Cili.
I did book the yoga for one hour- it was not worth the 200,000R, she needed more training. so make sure you ask who the instructor is.... I hd others to share the cost, but it was a bit disappointing. The yoga room is so beautiful. I wanted to practice there, but could have done my own practice in there and saved the $. The spa is charming, and make sure you get a table with a head face rest- or it's uncomfortable.
This resort is a great value too. They have a really good system in place with food and beverage- It's so fresh and delicious. The staff seems happy and organized.
I would go back there in a heartbeat.
No A.C.- nice fan in room and ocean breeze. VERY HUMID! Great laundry service too! Thanks for a wonderful stay in North Bali:)
