“Perfect for honeymooners - and everybody else!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Damai for five days - and oh what glorious days. We had booked a pool villa which exceeded our expectations by far (and they were high!). The interior decor in the villa was unbelievably pretty, as taken straight out of Elle Decoration Magazine. The pool itself was gorgeous and infinity style with a sweeping view over Lovina Bay.

Our package included a sunset cruise including one of Damai's splendid herb-infused cocktails. At the cruise we say at least 30 playful dolphins :-)

The food at Damai is a chapter of it's own: Well prepared, creatively interpreted dishes and beautifully arranged. Veggies, herbs and fruits derive from Damai's own gardens.

We also booked a cooking class which was great fun. Executive chef Nyoman took us to the market, a great and authentic experience with no other tourists, and hereafter we created some nice basic Indonesian dishes in the nice outdoor pavilion - a must-do! We also joined the free yoga class, which was fun, and had a lot of massages which were money well spent.

We can warmly recommend this place - a true Balinese gem!

My husband and I spent 3 luxurious nights at the Damai and it was absolutely incredibly amazing on every level :) Our every need was taken care of and nothing was too much trouble. The Damai has a certain feel that can only be experienced by being there. The food was sensational, the private villa is a dream (with great beds) the gardens beautiful and tranquil, massage the best we have ever had, sunset stunning, the cooking class/market trip with the head Chef Nyoman was fabulous, best Mojito cocktail ever using organic mint grown in the gardens of the hotel....... I cannot recommend the Damai highly enough and we will most definitely go back. 'Hard to find hard to leave' - is the perfect tag line for this superb property! Go there......

Room Tip: Every room is good :)

My wife and I have stayed at some of best hotels across the world and I can honestly say that The Damai is at the very top of that list. Everything is tastefully decorated with subtle elegance and with a real feeling of luxury. Our villa was simply stunning. Again very beautifully decorated with clever use of Balinese antiques whilst still managing a clean and modern feel. The private infinity pool was gorgeous. The food was of the highest quality and had a good mix of european and asian dishes. However, what really makes this place stand out are the staff. Every member of the team made us feel special. There was a true warmth and friendliness that just made you feel relaxed and at home. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: The pool villas are worth every penny! Beautifully decorated and luxurious. Try the cocktails. Bali...

Very peaceful, luxurious resort. We enjoyed very much our villa and private jacuzzi. Staff were excellent, spa massageand treatment fantastic. Dining by pool very romantic and food very tasteful and well presented and used fresh produce grown in grounds. Would be delighted to go back.

Only reservations, nothing to do with hotel, were distance from airport and Lovina not being very interesting.

(P.S. No fitness centre. Din't bother us)

My husband and I stayed here as part of a wedding party for 5 nights. The staff was excellent and very accommodating to our needs. Breakfast was very good. The pool is beautiful. The grounds are well-kept and the rooms are in separate buildings which adds to the peacefulness of the hotel. We would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Beautiful, quiet place to relax. Rooms are separate from each other, small buildings with gorgeous...

"Hard to find, hard to leave" it's so true! Staying at the Damai is like staying at a luxury hotel owned by friends as everyone makes you feel so welcome. My husband and I stayed for three nights and it was a wonderful experience from the moment the driver picked us up at the airport. Everything was absolutely perfect! The rooms are beautifully decorated, the grounds stunning, the spa, but most of all the staff. Marvellous people, very professional, always making sure you had all you need without crowding you. Not to mention the food! All meals were beautifully presented and delicious. We will return for sure.

If you are looking for a restful, beautiful place to stay in northern Bali, the hotel Damai is definitely my recommendation! I just spent 4 lovely days there and really enjoyed the beautiful grounds and lodging! The staff are incredibly friendly and accomodating! And the food is delicious (so much of it is grown in their own gardens)! I also highly recommend the spa there. It was so good, I ended up having a treatment every day! This is definitely paradise in Bali!
