At first this place seemed like it is in the middle of nowhere but once inside I was greeted by this lovely pool with floating frangipani flowers and soft trickling water. It was quiet and very romantic especially at night. The room looks new and well provided with basic toiletries. Great toilet with walk in shower, safe, and long mirror, topped with natural light from the ceiling. Best part is the couch by the window, and the big comfy bed. Everything is spotless clean and new. Food (by Gofast) was nice (I ordered bolognese) with good serving size and reasonably priced. Best experience was the 3.5 hours at Murano Spa which was very cheap yet very very good.
Despite all these good things, one negative thing was the mosquitoes! They were everywhere despite the efforts of the staff( I wasn't bitten at all). Each room is provided with plug in mosquito repellent, but for safety please bring your own lotion. Another one is the matter of the dogs. I honestly heard them barking and howling (creepy) at night but not loud enough to disturb sleep. I guess it depends on where your room is located. These dogs are strays (Bali has this stray dogs problem) and it seems like the hotel has nothing to do with it.
Overall, I will definitely recommend this place to anyone and will definitely stay again in case I drop by Seminyak again.
