We stayed here in June for 4 days, which was our first trip to Bali. To start off, just some background so you know the level of our critique. This is our seventh FS stay, which include Koh Samui (2x), Chiang Mai, Langkawi, the Seychelles (2x) and now Sayan Bali.
The pool villa was excellent, and we specially loved the open lounge area that form part of the deck. The gardens around the villa were immaculate providing absolute privacy. Our villa was in the upper end of the resort. similar villas are in the lower segment, here you will find more manicured gardens. the atmosphere is probably little better in the lower segment but nothing to complain about.
Quality of food is great and we had two themed dinners at the riveside cafe, both evenings were great. The other evenings we enjoyed the in-villa dining option- always a winner.
The swimming pool area next to the river was breathtaking, make sure to spend at least a morning or afternoon there.
If you are a first time visitor to a FS resort you may stop reading now.
Breakfast: you can only order alecarte, there is NO breakfast buffet as in all the other FSs we stayed at. This is restrictive as you dont know what fruit or pastries they have on offer over and above the main egg dish you want to order. This caused chaos one morning when we asked for a selection of pastries, so they brought us bread. After indicating that this was wrong, they brought us 3 pastries for 2 adults. How stupid! We asked for another 3. Needless to say the menu is highly confusing to the point you want to loose your temper. Sayan, look at your sister hotels i mentioned at the top and get it right. Oh yes also, make sure at this hotel you INCLUDE breakfast in you rate because the a la carte options are REALLY pricey, they charge for every single item.
disaster! One day they only arrived at 2pm to clean the room. We arrived back sticky and sweaty from the ubud town visit and now had to wait for them to complete their tasks. We complained, next day they were there at 10, but the next day they arrived at 3pm!!!! This is unacceptable for this standard of hotel. For the record Koh Samui send their staff to clean your room while you are at breakfast.
well all we can say, we rate them last out of the 5, Koh Samui #1 and Langkawi #2. it is part of the main building, nothing soothing and calming. Thus a poor experience.
a decent FS but falling well behind the newer sister hotels. That is with foresight we decided not to stay at Jimbaran Bay, it looks old and just go to google earth and you will see how on top of each other the villas are, not at all what you have at samui, seychelles or chiang mai. Tonight we are packing for Alila villas Uluwatu, who kindly agreed to pick us up at the FS Sayan.
