This hotel is located right on the beach and surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and water features. It is is a very quiet and restful place to stay despite being close to many typical Bali style bars and restaurants. The hotel like most Accor properties is extremely well run and the staff are excellent. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable although the air conditioning could be improved. While the hotel does have a free shuttle to Kuta it is usually quicker and more enjoyable to simply walk down the beach. It takes about 40 minutes.
