My family, all long-time Bali fans say this was the best overall resort they've visited and will be back again.Since I'm an "octo", I can but hope to do the same but meanwhile, let me recommend this oasis of peace in busy South Kuta.
This is a genuine beach resort , with a generous frontage of clean sand, a new beach-front bar- restaurant The Sands, which I highly recommend ( speak,to tall Oka, he mixes a mean cocktail) also a new beach-front spa, excellent but pricey.
We used two spacious pools ( I believe there are three) which never seem crowded and the grounds are simply superb, acres of green grass, every fallen leaf picked up, it seemed and such a happy green army keeping it immaculate.The in-line family of four ducks
Although the airport is only 10 minutes south and the runway end quite visible at night, there is no aircraft noise and very little traffic noise at all.
We experienced three levels of accommodation ( having upgraded to the spacious beach villas with gracious four-poster queen sized beds, until the younger half returned home) and each was excellent for its level. In fact, my eldest daughter, who stayed on to give the old bloke a few more days,, said our two linked deluxe rooms.opening onto the pool area were as good as any she'd stayed in. But she lamented we lost our face washers, bathroom scales, bathrobes and ice bucket once we downgraded!
The restaurants were bright and cheerful, with attentive supervisors in the Wayan or breakfast restaurant, which offered a range of good food choices, Asian and Western in copious quantities, whatever time one ate and there were plenty of eggs! The Sands Restaurant on the beach offered indoor-outdoor eating under the palms with very good service. Not cheap, but affordable and of a reasonable standard.
We must commend the manager, who was most helpful with the regrading in both directions, so it wasn't just about revenue.
Now for the staff... what can you say about such a smiling, cheerful, helpful and totally delightful group of people dedicated to your service and comfort... and they weren't all young
In all respects, a highly;y satisfactory beach resort to suit all types of visitors, offering easy access to busy Kuta and beyond at very affordable rates for each class of accommodation.
Ground floor corner deluxe rooms (116&117) were top value, quiet & close to beach and pool
