We booked online and paid $200 plus taxes per night for the cheapest available room. Imagine our surprise to be assigned the largest and most luxurious hotel room I've ever stayed in my life. The largest I've seen apart from a whole floor made over and reserved for a visiting sultan in KL 20 years ago. At least 300 sq metres (larger than our apartment in Jakarta) with just one bedroom, a vast bathroom/dressing room/walk-in wardrobe area, one vast bedroom and a vast living/dining area. Separate kitchen. All this is fitted out in ultra-modern luxury chic. We did not want to leave, that was for sure. This must have been an upgrade. And what an upgrade
The hotel seems very new so there are a few teething troubles. The restaurant waitress was unfamiliar with Darjeeling, for example. But food was decent. The entrance to the lobby using a golf buggy doesn't work well. And the total area of the grounds is small compared to most 5 star hotels in Bali (the Intercontinental is 15 mins walk away and has maybe 10-20 times as much space). But what style!
