We wanted somewhere special to end our 30 day visit to Bali. Somewhere to stop moving, relax, get a little pampering before heading home. We found a most tranquil stay at Desa Seni. They think of everything. Very well organized to make you feel special - from the staff remembering our names, to a birthday song and cake when we arrived, delicious huge breakfasts delivered to our porch and little sayings on our beds. All of our expectations were exceeded, and with such grace and smiles from the whole team. All of your kindness was truly appreciated. And the yoga was great too (but very popular, so arrive early to class!)
I do want to mention that the only way to the beach is along a busy narrow road. About 10 minutes on bikes that the hotel provides for free, but I found the ride a little hectic with the traffic. It's a really inexpensive cab ride, so that's probably the best option. Maybe the hotel could offer a shuttle to and from the beach for guests. If you do take the bikes, make sure your brakes work well.
Great job to the entire staff and owners for providing a slice of paradise. The thought and care put into every design decision really shows. It is artfully decorated with artifacts and pieces of Indonesian history. It's a feast for the eyes and soul.
