We have just returned from a weekend at Turi Beach. The hotel had gone through renovations and it seems to have settled. The timing of us being there was just right as the place was almost empty when we got there, just before the weekend crowd.
It being the monsoon season, the ferry ride there was chopppy coming in.
We had near perfect weather with strong winds, clear skies and the warm sun. You could pay for everything in Singapore dollars. But do check the bill as its first tabulated in indonesian currency before converted in Singapore dollars.
We stayed on group floor facing the new emerald pool at the tirta wing and with an excellent view of the sea too. The king sized bed with in the zen inspired room was just what we needed for a non complicated holiday getaway.
The breakfast buffet inclusive was ok with clean and attentive staff. The standards of the other restaurants was relaxed and ok.
The Spa is worth a look as they did have Staff who knew what they were doing and reasonable prices. The gift shop did not have much. What I would improve? maybe the dining options.
There is nothing much else to do, soak in the pool, catch some sun, read a book and go for quiet walks to the next door sister resorts
Overall I would recommend this place to any one that needs to get out of the city and have a few days to yourself or with the partner. It is family and kids friendly. We didnt try the sea sports offered but options were there to try them.
What i enjoyed were the little huts that were dotted around the place that allowed you to chill out in them with triangle cushions provided and the walk to the island bar out in the sea.
