Wonderful relaxing stay with excellent hosts, views and accommodation. Perfectly maintained gardens with a bali flavour where ever you look. Hard to find a better spot. Andre and Anthony were very welcoming and relaxed and breakfast was superb. Highly enjoyable tours included in a package.

The attention to detail was evident everywhere from the enchanting silk lanterns to the beautifully appointed rooms. Our room was cool, calming and... More
