pros: if you're looking to get away from the city, and want some peace and quiet this is a great place. I especially liked all the different activities at the resort like milking a cow in the local village, taking a ceramic class (in their lovely studio), and others. so even though the resort is over an hour drive from Bandung, you will have plenty of things to do while you relax. the cottages are also big in size. the heated pool at night is amazing and very romantic. the staff are very friendly and helpful and i thought the food was very good! (especially their tea) you can also take a trip to the volcano nearby (the resort will set that up for you). it's aso nice that they have massage available - they come to your room (which I'm not crazy about as I like being a separate relaxed spa atmosphere) but the quality of the massage was NOT good.
cons: i didn't care for all the ants in the cottage as they were A LOT everywhere but i guess this comes with the cottage being where it is. while the cottage is nice enough, they are pretty run down and need updating so don't expect some fancy modern/minimalist accomodation. but it's still pretty nice and nicely decorated for the most part. yes, it is over an hour drive from bandung and it's a rough drive as the resort is in the middle of a village so if you're looking to stay in Bandung proper, this is very much out of the beaten path from the city. as noted above, while they offer a massage, it was not good at all and the person was obviously not trained or someone who does it regularly
overall we enjoyed the stay but probably would not go again (we rarely do unless the place is amazing).
