Dear Sukhwant M, Thank you for taking times to write a review for us. We tried asking for a clarification from the staff who were on duty when you have checked in at 11 pm on 3rd November 2018, where you did not express your opinion to them at that time. At that time, if we could be given a chance for us by offering you to move to another room that might be more safe and comfortable for you, but in a late night situation for only 2 hours stay, we don't have an opportunity to provide our services. We may apologize that the situation that you in self drive car for 2.5 hours away and at that time according to your review that it was not met to your expectations. Thank you, Kind Regards, Tia Customer Service Medewi Bay Retreat

Great to get away from the crowds. If you are looking for a relaxing stay to just chill this is the place. Quite a distance from airport about 4 hrs recommend you stay in Kuta for first night if arriving on a long flight.lovely spacious rooms. Staff were super friendly and

I came to Bali on a solo trip from Chicago, IL. I stayed here at Medewi Bay Retreat and had the best time! The staff is very accomodating and helpful—I felt right at home! :) I would recommend Medewi Bay to all of my friends who would be thinking about travelling to Bali!

I know its a retreat but there was no atmosphere and absolutely nowhere to go. The wifi only works in reception and the equipment in the room did not match what was advertised. There were only 8 units occupied and they even cancelled the Balinese night due to lack of customers.

Dear Guest-Philnjan, Thank you for bringing this review to our attention. We have just changed the internet provider to get a better internet connection, and we have plan to gradually expand the installation network so that the internet can be accessed from the guest rooms. Please feel free to reach out to us directly by email Re: the equipment in the room did not match as advertised or any additional information you have to share. We apologize that the Balinese dance event was canceled but we still have other activities such as Barbeque or quiz parties on another day. Thank you. Warm regards, Dewi Customer Service Medewi Bay Retreat, Pekutatan, Bali Barat PVB GROUP

I reviewed Medewi Bay Retreat back in 2014. We revisited in 2016 and still found it great, although the Indonesian dance/food evening was cancelled due to not enough people being interested. We still enjoyed the peace and calm, the beautiful pool and the miles of - then -

Hi to you. From Kuta it will take approx 4 hours depending on traffic. Yes there are little grocery shops locally. But small but stock pretty much everything but dairy as that is not common. Negara is the main town around 20km from Medewi so you can always shop there. There are a couple of great cafes in the local area so you will not have problems. Go and enjoy a beautiful part of Bali as it used to be. Cheers

There are drivers at the resort and can take you where you want to go. You can take the cars for 8 hours about $70 I would think or around that cost. Thats the car driver petrol and insurance all covered. It is safer to take a driver you can trust speaks you language.
