I stayed at the L hotel with a friend of mine for 4 nights. We absolutely loved this new boutique hotel with all its comforts. After staying in quite a few five star hotels all around the world this hotel really amazed me, especially regarding its value for money. Considering the L Hotel belongs to the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" group and paying only 140€ a night/room is exceptional. We got a special opening rate which is 50% off the regular price, so you better hurry! ;)
As in the other reviews already mentioned there is a 24 hour individual butler service (which includes free steaming up to 4 pieces a day), a 24 hour shuttle service (which is so convenient- we loved it!), a personal cell phone so you are able to call for pick ups or any other assistance. We also enjoyed the complimentary mini bar (ever longed for a cold coke and got annoyed at the horrendous mini bar prices? well, not with this one) and the complimentary drink and canapes at the wonderful rooftop bar. The Lychee Martinis and the food were superb (try the Chicken Tikka and the scallops), as well as the view overlooking padi fields and the ocean. We were also big fans of the pillow menu (you can choose from 5 different pillows), the Kiehl's toiletries and the delicious a la carte breakfast. The breakfast/dining area is directly by the pool which gives it a special charm and to my taste is not disturbing at all (referring to the other reviews). When we went out late we preferred to have breakfast in bed the next morning at no extra charge.
Our butler organized a wonderful daytrip to Ubud including a visit to the monkey forest and the elephant safari park, booked our treatments at the L Spa next door (the hot stone and traditional Balinese massage are fantastic) and always had the best recommendations where to go out. All the hotspots (W Hotel, Ku de Ta, Potato Head) are just around the corner. Another great tip was Nammos beachclub at Karma Kandara and the famous Rock Bar at Ayana Resort & Spa. Totally worth the drive (depending on the traffic about 1 hour by cab, not more than 10€)!
The minor downsides of the hotel mentioned in previous reviews regarding the pool and the small rooms are really not an issue. You are out on day trips, the beach or at beach clubs anyway! If you are on honeymoon and prefer to spend all day in your room or by the pool then a private villa would be the better option for you (e.g. The Ulin Villas & Spa). For all the others who are looking for a stylish boutique hotel with great value for money and outstanding service this is for you!
