Vila Ombak must be one of the first, if not the first, higher end hotels on the island. As a result, operations run smoothly in its own island-like pace. I stayed at the huts which for a bit of extra cost seemed to me much nicer than the general rooms. I loved the outdoor showers, the generous morning buffet, the beautiful gardens. A great asset is also the central location of the hotel but at the same time, the place is quite well shielded from the party noise down the street.
For those who appreciate quality food, Pearl Lounge next door to the right is highly recommended. The Pearl Lounge also has its own pool which is much better and fresher than the main one of the hotel.
Also, if you would like to do some diving, I'd recommend the dive shop of the hotel as it has well-maintained equipment and safety conscious staff. The prices are the same across the island but the offering of some other dive shops on the island are really bad.
Well-heeled travellers will spot some flaws with Vila Ombak here and there but I do not consider it material so will leave it to someone else to make a comment.
