The Damai was absolutely everything we were looking for in a Balinese resort-stay.
Yes, it is a bit of a drive from the airport, but that is more a benefit than a cost given the quiet, out of the tourist-fray location.
Our room was beautiful- simple, classic Balinese style, impeccably clean, with the most luxe beds and linens. The staff's attention to detail was unparalleled. Our room was made up, and turned-down while we were at breakfast and dinner, resulting in no interruptions while we relaxed.
Given we were there for only two days, we opted out of one of the many well-planned itineraries offered by the resort around the island. Instead, we signed on for cooking class which was a wonderful and intimate experience with the hotel's accomplished chef. We also took full advantage of their spa, which left no room for complaint.
The food and drink was really the star of the show. Hotel food tends to get redundant or bland. Not so at the Damai. They put a lot of thought and energy into all their menus and you are hard-pressed to find a better meal at any of Bali's 5-star restaurants.
But all of this would be nothing if not for the service. The staff goes above and beyond for you, happy to assure you have everything you need while not only at the hotel, but in Bali. The general manager takes time to meet all the guests and our butler, Eka, was perfect- charming, helpful and warm.
We will definitely be making a trip back to Bali, if only to spend more time at The Damai. My suggestion: book in advance so you don't miss out on this truly special experience!
