It was a marvelous experience to stay at The Payogan once again after a 3 year absence.
Arriving late in the afternoon, and failing to have booked in advance, we walked in on a rainy afternoon and were cordially greeted by hotel staff. Wayan, of the senior reception staff, arranged a very reasonable rate for a "garden villa" for the first 2 nights, and a pre-determined rate for the remaining stay at one of the "pool villas," as the pool villa was not available for the first 2 nights, although an internet site did show it available earlier in the day.
We were fortunate enough, upon request, to have stayed at the same villa as before, and once there had the feeling of being "home" again.
Eventually, we extended our stay at the "Pool Villa" not just one, but 2 nights, especially at the friendly urging of "Dyan" at the reception who was very personable and professional.
There was another young lady at the reception, petite in frame, but with a warm and ingratiating charm. I cannot remember her name, but she was delightful.
We took an incredible liking to "Henni," also with the reception, and presumably senior staff member. Everyday, we enjoyed more and more, our spontaneous conversations with her, and her extremely relaxed and pleasant demeanor. It was Henni who arranged a discounted rate for our "extra nights", and made us really feel completely at home, and not as though we were just a guest at a hotel.
It is individuals such as Henni, and most of the staff at The Payogan, as well as the lovely grounds and overall serenity, that would make us come back again, and again.
The five stars rated is for the overall feeling of the resort and its staff, as a whole.
We look forward to seeing them and The Payogan in the future.
