We stayed in the two bedroom unit, our first time in a villa type accomodation, usually staying in more hotel type accommodation. We arrived at Ginger Suites after spending time at another hotel in Tuban, so organised our own transport there. If I hadn't had a couple of pages of instructions and map plans to show our driver, it may have been tricky to find, so would recommend organising Ginger Suites to pick you up if possible. I must say that on first impression, I thought we seemed to be 'out in the sticks', but once we got our bearings and realised where we were, then we were fine. It was a bit of a walk to Eat street, but very doable in the day, only thing was it could be a little dangerous on parts of the road where there is no foot path and the cars and bikes come very close to you! The reception staff were simply wonderful, and it was very easy to ask for them to ring a taxi for us. Bluebird taxis in Seminyak charge 30,000 rp minimum, so even when the metre fare for this short trip was less, we would need to pay the 30,000 (plus a tip for our friendly drivers!), but money well spent! If you hire scooters, then this would be the easiest option on getting about. One tip would be when getting a taxi back to Ginger Suites, some drivers did not know where to go, so we would just tell them to go to 'La Sal restaurant on Drupardi', which takes you to within a minutes walk of Ginger Suites. Most drivers knew where this was.
The apartment itself was lovely and clean, two bedrooms with ensuite in each and a central kitchen in the middle - exactly as shown in the photos on the web site. Beds were very comfy, fresh towels each day and coffee and tea supplied. The breakfast pastries were a nice touch! Was nice to wake early and whip down to reception and grab our basket and hop back into bed with a coffee and watch tv until our kids woke and then we would head off for more of a brunch. The staff can organise a cook to make breakfast or meals for you, but we did not use this service. I did order a lovely glass of wine from the little bar area near reception one afternoon, and that was lovely! Also the drinks in the fridge were the same price that we were paying at the supermarket. The pool, while not big, was lovely and refreshing and nice and deep. Plenty of mosquitos about, but they did provide mossie spray cans to use. Because the bathrooms and the kitchen area were 'open style', it meant that you would get mossies in these areas, especially in the evenings if you had lights on. Just be prepared with mossie coils or mossie spray. We did notice the distant 'thump thump' noise at night from nearby nightclubs, but it really wasn't a big deal for us and didn't keep us awake or anything like that. We would definately recommend Ginger Suites for a very pleasant place to stay, with very friendly helpful staff, if you are looking for a quiet place to stay and are aware that it is a short taxi drive to some of those amazing Seminyak restaurants (eg. you wouldn't walk down Drupadi street in the dark as too dangerous, not enough light and no footpaths and big open drains!). Only suggestions for owners (who have obviously put a lot of thought into Ginger Suites) would be to have a bigger rubbish bin for the kitchen area and to have an outside clock in view of the pool so we could check the time while enjoying an afternoon swim! Thankyou for a wonderful stay!!
