We stayed at this Hotel last September for 14 nights. We did use our timeshare points and must say we were hesitant after reading some negative comments, to use our points we had no other choice at the time of our visit. If you go by timeshare Classic...the company, were wonderful.
Our concerns were short lived once we arrived. We were warmly greeted by the staff on duty. We had a one bedroom unit, it was large, comfortable and clean with full aircon. Our unit was on the side of the building but we still had a view, our veranda face the road but it wasn't noisy at all, ok you got the odd motor scooter wizzing past but that's Bali. We would sit and watch the locals enjoying their day to day activities and it was interseting. It is at the end of town.....and I mean the end! But it is only a 5 mins walk to Restaurants and Bars and very quiet. A five min walk to great restaurants such as Meads, Tao, Sakarla and many more. Remember when you stay at Segara you are part of 'village life' so it's not rowdy or unsafe, the school is up the road and when you walk around the side streets you are in suburbia but everyone is welcoming.
We were there during a festival, the temple is across the road so we had a couple of days of chanting! Through the day we were out but the first evening we thought 'oh, no' as the we thought it was going to go all night. On returning from dinner the staff wanted to move us to a back room for one night so were could be 'in peace' they were very sweet but the chanting ends at 10pm so we stayed in our room without regret.
The units have basic kitchen supplies but enough for holidays, the breafasts are the same menu each day but nice enough. We actaully got a taxi to Hardy's Market in Nusa Dua and did a bit of shopping, it was about $3 AUD ea way by taxi, a local super market and has everything you need including cheap alcohol. Anything we had left we gave to staff. The staff can do enough to help with anything you might need. The pool is small but ok, however there are restaurants up the road that have pools and if you buy a beer, coffee or water etc you can virtually stay there all day. Sakarla had just opened and it doesn't look the type of place you can just wander in to and use.....but you, we had the pool to ourselves more than once and the food is great. Dinner at Meads (Meads in Bali) google it, was wonderful, a little more costly than the average but worth it.
Kuta is about 20 mins by taxi (in peek hour) and cost about $13 AUD max but if you get a clear run you can get there for $7. Water activities are on the beach in front of Segara (no noise in rooms).
We sold our house while we were at Segara so there were contracts going backwards and forwards for several days, the staff were all FANTASTIC!! They helped us no end and we had full use of computers faxes and they even let us use the phones. They were as excited as we were :-). The day we left check out was a t 10am but we weren't to leave till around 9pm for a midnight flight. When breakfast arrived the Duty Manager came with it and told us when we were due to leave to please call him as he had arranged another room for us to store our bags etc. When he took us to the room he said to use it as our own, we could sleep and shower etc. How nice was he to do this for us. Anyway we store our gear, swam at Sakarla...and used their showers, had dinner at Meads and wander back to Segara to get our bags and meet our taxi.
If you don't want the nosie and crowds then try Segara if you want a hit Kuta for a night or a days shopping it' close enough. Laundry in a side street on your right walking to town...very cheap and good.
You will love Bali.......Enjoy!
