This was supposed to have been one of the highlights of our trip to Bali. Its a beautiful hotel in a stunning location. But perhaps because I took advantge of an early booking discount via Agoda, the management felt we didnt deserve the same treatment as other guests. I booked a "Superior Tripple". This ended up being a windowless basement underneath one of the usual luxury villas we thought we had booked. Three beds were squashed in and there was no air conditioning... a real problem as there are tons of mosquitos. We had to share a toilet/shower in one to top it off. Terrible. The management said they could move us to a villa... but for one night only...we would have to go back to the dungeon the next day. Apparently they were fully booked... even though I booked and paid months in advance! We were also promised a packed breakfast for an early morning start... it never materialised. And when we booked a massage at the spa... halfway we were told they didnt have anywhere to wash the mud pack off.... so we got half the package. Bizzare. Some serious managerial training is needed. It could be a fabulous hotel based on locatipn and layout. For us it was a big dissapointment and we couldn't wait to leave.
