“Good but lacks polish to be great.”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

Villas are huge, well furnished but lack the x factor to be great. Hot water ran out when bath was half full, plastic rubbish bins and lack if finer detain in amenities let's this place down. The service was friendly but slow and with no initiative thus overall it was disappointing. Food was good but after a few days we were over it. Servings were small. The property itself is delightful however without the service to back it up we wouldn't recommend it.

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
Thank you for your succinct review after your holiday at Gending Kedis.
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the facilities and services including the food, massage treatments, the large Clubhouse swimming pool and the overall service from our friendly staff.
As the Jimbaran Beach is 800 meters from our resort, we offer from morning to night a complimentary shuttle service which on average takes just 2 minutes to the nearest part of the Jimbaran Beach.
Thank you for choosing a GK Resorts property and we look forward to welcoming you back once again.. Kind greetings from The Island of the Gods! Douglas Wallace

We had booked a 1 Bedroom Villa. This was truely a beautiful property. Small private tropical garden, huge lounge and dining room with a fully equipped kitchen. Downstairs is your patio with private pool and bedroom.

The one bedroom villa's are located on the ravine resulting in some serious stairs. Sadly, there is a lot of trash in the ravine which really spoils the view. Due to all the trees above, sunlight is minimal which left the villa very dark. I would definately recommend that you book a 2 bedroom villa or higher as they are on a much better level with more sunlight. Due to this, we ended up leaving earlier and moving to another hotel.

Laundry service did not return our laundry same day although it was handed in before the cut-off time. The Butlers resolved this rather quickly though.

The Guest Services person checking us in was rather unpleasant to deal with and she seemed disinterested but the rest of the staff were brilliant.

There is a complimentary shuttle which takes you to Jimbaran Bay/Beach. This is a bonus.

Restaurant offers excellent service and truely stunning food.

The Spa is well worth a visit to take you into another world for an hour or so.

I would considering returning but not for a one bedroom villa.

Room Tip: Avoid 1 bedroom villa's

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
We appreciate your time to write a detailed review following your stay at Gending Kedis.
Thank you for your generous comments on the accommodation and service. We are happy that you enjoyed the restaurant food as well as the spa services.
During the rainy season there is a certain amount of trash which is carried down by the water in the ravine. We are truly sorry that at the time of your visit the view was possibly spoiled because of remaining trash. We make a point of cleaning the ravine regularly with all our staff.
Thank you again for your very helpful review. Kind regards, Douglas Wallace

nicely made property .location is nice also ,if you want an isolated quite location .Kuta beach is the hustle bustle and this is quite place... but carry your extra blanket with u , as when we asked for a blanket , flatly refused by them and then they send me a bed runner to use , as they had none extra .so to adjust we switched off the AC .
swimming pool is a with villa is alluring concept but pool itself is a very small one and u cannot enjoy a swim . in the one room villa , pool is dangerously located, and risky . u can see cats n frogs around and in night for children its scary.breakfast is not buffet and as my son wanted an extra glass of juice , i was shockingly told that it would be chargeable , though breakfast was included in my package .
christina in the front desk and Surjya at alcedo were really nice and helpful .but this property so nicely made , is not for big family or group . thumbs down , as other than nice deco , the hotel need to look after other requirements of the guests .

We stayed there 3 days Jan and were well treated. The food was great and the chef obliged us with off menu items.

The villa is very beautiful and comfortable but only drawback is that since it is on the slope of a hill, our villa was like 3 stories below.

On the positive side, gives you some exercise.

The spa is also excellent and very relaxing. The hotel will organise various activities for you and help getting across.

Would love to go with friends and family and take the 4 bedroom villa

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
Thank you very much for your lucid review after your stay with us at Gending Kedis. We are delighted that you liked the food at the Alcedo Restaurant and that you were able to give your personal requests to our Chef. Thank you also for using the Malkoha Spa.
We would certainly be delighted should you decide to return with your family and friends and choose one of our 4-bedroom villas - either Kokokan or Jelantik, both located on the upper slope of the valley with sweeping forest views.
Thank you for choosing GK Resorts, with warm wishes from me and our team, Douglas Wallace

It exceeded my expectations by a long shot. It had the feel of a high end boutique hotel. the villas were very tasteful and expansive with beautiful forrest valley type views that you would expect in Ubud. The location was exceptional as well, a short drive from the airport and a five minute walk to Jimbaran beach. The food was great and service was exceptional. It made my stay in Bali a very memorable one, and I will definitely be back to stay at Gending Kedis again.

We stay here four nights and were very pleased with our experience. We had a chance to visit some of the larger hotels in the area that we had considered staying at and were so happy we had booked Gending Kedis. It's intimate without being isolated, the staff is wonderful and shared with us their rich culture which after all is why we all love to travel. The hotel is a short walk to jimbarran bay which allowed us see the quaint fishing village, bit don't worry if walking isn't your thing they have a shuttle that takes you virtually everywhere in town. Loved our stay here!
