Upon reaching the ferry terminal, the welcome team from Turi Beach resort was already there and made the necessary arrangement for us to be transported to the resort itself. Personally I feel that this is good as we do not habe to walk around and ask for more directions and the staff was friendly.
After which, we were then send to the resort in a bus which was fairly comfortable. Once we arrive at the resort, we were amazed with the scenery and proceeded for our check in. Staff was friendly and answered all our questions. We then checked in to our room at the Tirta Wing and our room was on the second level and had a great view of the sea and the pool was just below us. The paths are all linked to the pool area and the restaurant.
Our room was fairly clean however stains can still be seen on the flooring in the room as well as the toilet. Better housekeeping would be a plus to their awesome location. Pool experience was ok and there are a place for you to rent your pool towels(penalty of S$25 ea if it is lost). Most of the stuff there are in Singapore currency but you can also request to pay in rupiah as well not much issues about that.
During this trip, we took a cab to town on our first day and the shuttle bus service on our second. The trip to Mega Mall is around 25 - 35 mins and food there is fairly cheaper than the ones you would find in the resort itself. Breakfast buffet in the resort itself is ok, Asian varieties are avaliable there and the food is acceptable. The restaurant itself has a view of the sea and it's is clean as well however expect some flies around as it is an open area.
Overall, I would say this is a nice experience and I would visit it again. If I'm not wrong, the Riani Wing is currently undergoing renovations and I hope it would be a good upgrade. Give it a try if you want to have a getaway from the busy city life. ;)
