It was a big gamble to stay at this hotel when there were no reviews anywhere in the internet. I took my chance and I stayed, and GUESS WHAT it was a GREAT GAMBLE! In order for you not to gamble but book based on someones experience, here is my review:
The place is new and it has 4 villas, 1 two bedroom villa and 3 one bedroom villas. They are currently building one more villa behind the lobby.
The location is only some minutes away from the little village centre and they have free shuttle service. The lobby is quite small and it overlays the rice fields. The staff are super friendly and most of them speak good English. Gusti is the superstar of the property, very smooth communication and will get out of his way to make your stay pleasent.
I traveled with my wife and we stayed in a one bedroom villa. The villa is very spacious and had a nice setup. There is a private door that takes through a path full of plantation to a good 30 meter sqr private pool that overlays the rice fields from one side and the bedroom to the other side. The pool area has a dinning corner which Gusti has surprised my wife with a romantic setup of flowers in the pool and candles in the table! The bedroom is a balinase style room with a sattelite TV (which I think needs more channels). The bedroom is small and cosy and the bed is clean and comfy. The Airconditioning is excellent.The bathroom is semi indoor/outdoor with a beautiful bath. It also has a shower (which I think water needs to have more pressure).
They do have room service at reasonable prices, and the breakfast is very and tasty, however, they should add more varieties.
Overall, yes, I would stay again and recommend this place to a close friend.
