Our stay at Royal Residence Rangdu was absolutely fantastic. It was way beyond our expectations. The resort is situated in a very relaxing environment of mountains and rice fields only 20 minutes from Lovina. The views are stunning. The resort consists of a number of beautiful and large villa's with a slight colonial touch. We stayed at a villa named Wana which is a majestic house with a huge terrace surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden full of mango trees. There were literally thousands of mango's hanging in the trees. The staff climbed the trees for us like acrobats and picked the ones that were ripe so we could eat unlimited mango's and drink mango juice from the garden (all organic according to the staff). The staff also picked coconuts from the same garden and served them to us. This was quite an experience. The rooms in the house are very spacious and luxurious. All bedrooms have open bathrooms so you bathe in the sun. The service was perfect and the food excellent. Food can be ordered from a menu with lost of variety. It is prepared in a central kitchen and served by waiters who call themselves butlers. Big advantage is that you can also choose to cook for your self. Supplies can be bought at the supermarket in the nearby town Seririt or at one of the local warungs just down the road. The swimming pool is gorgeous. It is designed to resemble a jungle pond and has an ecofilter so the water contains no chloride. The management can make arrangements for all kinds of activities like fishing trips, dolphin watching, jungle trekking, snorkelling, etc. We didn't do any of this. For us it was more than enough to chill out on the terrace and near the swimming pool. We definitely recommend Royal Residence Rangdu.
