It took me some time to decide which property to stay at for a 4 day break with Miss 17 prior to meeting up with family in Seminyak to attend a wedding and I must say that after finally choosing The Respati I am happy with my choice. What a lovely hotel, absolute beachfront with beautiful grounds and friendly competant staff. The hotel is not large and I think that is one of the advanatages. I had paid for a deluxe room and was upgraded to a deluxe bungalow which was a bonus. The room was massive with a very comfortable bed and huge shower. The tv reception was of good quality with quite a few channels to choose from. We had a lounge and a dressing table and a lovely verandah with table and 2 chairs. Tea and coffee making facilities are not suppled, but I was able to get a jug from housekeeping, so problem solved as I always carry my own tea bags and milk. I am an early riser and cannot wait until the restaurants open to have my morning cuppa.
Location is perfect, right in the middle of the best restaurants and a quick stroll or pushbike ride to the markets. There is an excellent money exchange across the road and the best spa right next door. Koa spa would have to do the best massage I have ever had and believe me I have had a few massages in my time. I spent the next week in Seminyak trawling spas trying to find a decent massage and none came anywhere near as close to being as good as the massages I had at Koa. I also had different girls each time, so it must be the way their staff are trained.
Whilst we were at The Respati no one used the pool and there were no sun lounge hogs either. There are only 8 lounges around the pool, but mostly people only use them to get WIFI reception. Most guests spent the day on the sun lounges on the beach, of which there is plenty for everyone.
Breakfast is adequate with Indonesian and western dishes on offer and an egg station if you desire. We did eat out for breakfast some days, but only because I believe that The Porch has the best breakfast in Bali.
We hired pushbikes for our stay, because I worked out a few years back that this is the best way to get past the persistant sellers on the beach path, if you dont stop they cant catch you!
The only negative comments I have about The Respati would be that WIFI should be available in all the rooms and that tea and coffee making facilities should be provided.
I would highly recommend The Respati and will definately return in the future.
