Having been to Bali several times before, I have stayed in quite a few Balinese hotels and Puri Sebatu definitely rates as one of the best.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 9 nights towards the end of August 2013 and we had an absolutely wonderful stay. The rooms are just beautiful (ask for room 1,2,3 or 4 as they are higher up the hill and have better views).
The food was really nice - a little pricey by comparison - we only ate here one night. The breakfasts are fantastic and they offer a great range of choice, from traditional Balinese delicacies to American pastry feasts!
Although it is a bit of a trek into the town (30-45 minutes by car) it's really not that bad as the hotel offers a regular shuttle car - the hotel's remote location makes for a perfect getaway holiday.
The rooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms are just what you would expect in Bali - huge glass windows, open air showers and enormous bath tubs.
The staff can't do enough to help and once you discover that before the hotel opened they all personally helped to create the gardens and make the place as wonderful as it is today, you can't help but feel as if you've been welcomed into the arms of a new family! When we got home there was a really kind email asking if we got home safely - they really do pull out all the stops.
Really worth a visit if you are in the area and want a more secluded, quiet and tranquil holiday experience.
Not recommended for families but single travellers or couples.
