After a week with friends in Bali, arriving here was a dream as there were no hawkers, no shops, no traffic - a real getaway. And the beach is stunning! White sand, clear water, waves and few people. The cafe near the beach serves fabulous fresh food, and cold beer, and the presentation and service are superb. Breakfast and dinner were also amazing as the menus have been well considered - the owners grow a lot of their own veges and herbs.
My room was gorgeous - fresh flowers on the bed when I arrived, fresh fruit and every amenity catered for. There was a fully kitted out kitchenette in the room with two gas elements, which I only used for boiling the jug. Comfy bed and a selection of pillows, ipod dock stereo (good sound) *and* a water cooler! Attention to detail was fabulous.
Really enjoyed my stay and would recommend to anyone. The views are amazing and the beach is a few steps down the hill, and back up again, so keep that in mind. The ride from the aiport is about 1 1/4 hours and passes through a variety of villages which is interesting.
