we stayed at the LMJ for 3 nights. First night booked a classic room(cheapest room on offered) as arrived late night from Lombok and don't think that we need to pay for the suite yet. Lucky enough we had been upgraded to a suite on the 3rd floor. The room is big and well appointed.
Large TV, working area, nice stand alone bathtub and separate toilets from the shower area/sink, very comfortable bed and good quality bed sheet and towels.
It was our anniversary and they give us a cute chocolate cake. it was a nice touch. (it's one of the best looking cake+best taste we even have from the hotel)
The next days we booked into a villa with private pool (located on the 6th Floor) Great size room with private pool. But the layout is rather odd. Bathroom and toilet located on one side, where the walk in closet is on opposite side, i have to walk to the other end to get dress. Toilet is on the angle (triangle room to be exact) which we can't really sit straight as our knee will (or close to) hit the wall. Oh, by the way, because of the design, it's very bright in the morning as the sun come through the skylight near our bed. (no partition bwt bedroom and jacuzzi) We can't really sleep in.
Also when it's rain the water dripped into the spa (maybe the roof leak) create such an annoying sound and make it hard to sleep. When we wake up there is heaps of water on the floor and we did not know where it's coming from (until we check it's probably leak from the glass window)
I mean we are paying 450+ $ per night here! it that the standard we should be recieve?
No bottle opener provide in the room every time my partner want to open the bottle of beer have to call up and ask someone to come. We did ask to keep the bottle opener during our stay and return when check out but they said NO. We went have bough a bottle opener so we don't have to call them.
Breakfast: the service was great and prompt. Lots of asian and european items. Overall great quality food.
Restaurant: Bamboo chic had an asian menu, we have dinner on the 1st night and it was great. although as an asian theme restaurant none of the main come with rice. and you have to order extra rice. I found that very odd.
Location: Bali is my second holiday destination, I have been here 5-6 times in the past 3 yrs. And this is the first time we stayed in Jimbaran. To be honest Apart from seafood restaurant I found the area a bit boring. from the hotel you can walk seafood restaurants on the beach front. and 3min walk to Jimbaran corner shopping mall around the corner (5-6 boutique shops, very quiet) there is no direct beach access. But the hotel have partner with Jimbaran beach club - although if you want a seat or lounging around you have to pay for a drink there? really? (co-partner?)
Overall: it's a nice hotel but if you just stay in your room+look outside you can be anywhere in the world. no view and very generic. Although the hotel try a bit extra with their art sculptures etc. I just don't think it made up for what you miss out on compare to the same price hotel in Kuta, seminyak or legian
