As with all the previous voucher user reveiws, we had our hicups. However, the manager, Mr Henry, could not have done any more to help overcome them and compensate with apologies. Villas International are the villans and hopefully for the Retreat they will be able to sort this out before too much longer. If you booked through Why Pay Full Price make sure you have their voucher with you.
O.K Back to the Retreat. Wow! Huge apartments. Can't overestimate the importance of their provision of filtered water in the villa, as much as you can drink, and you'll need it if it is humid. The private pool is wonderful and so refreshing after a day of sight seeing. The Retreat provides a great shuttle service. It felt like the real Bali being amongst the jungle like vegetation. The staff are sooooo friendly, and, yes there are some communication issues, but, be patient, because all they want to do is provide whatever you want when you want it and with a great big smile. The service is top class. The breakfast provides a wide variety of options, let's face it if you are at home you don't have this much variety. We would recommend a driver, actually, we would recommend our driver, Harry, he speaks very good English and wants to learn more. He is extremely friendly, happy, an excellent driver. We travelled most days with him and felt completely safe and secure. His local knowledge was invaluable to us as first timers to Bali. Feel free to contact me for his details.
The spa at the resort was excellent. don't miss it! The Pure Bar was such a relaxing place to unwind and have a drink. We found the food at the Splash Bar very good and for what we got it was very reasonable. There are places to eat where you can get cheap food in Bali, but not with the convenience and class of the Retreat. I think you get what you pay for. If you want to star in classy accommodation, even in Bali, expect to pay a bit more for food. We thought it was worth it. My husband and I do enjoy eating out when on holidays and we found our experience at the Nusa Dua Retreat was value for money. A word of warning- don't stay here if you want a night life close by. We were able to have a great time staying here while enjoying the calm, quiet and real surroundings and, also, venture out and discover more of Bali.
