The hotel room was impressive at first - we had our own "villa", which had two floors, and a bath tub in the middle of the floor. However, the layout of the room was not very convenient. For example, the bathroom is on the ground floor and the bed is on the first floor. Going to the bathroom at night was a pain - and sometimes dangerous, given that the light switches were also inconveniently located (my husband hurt himself walking down the stairs at night...)
The location is also not great. The best thing going for it is that it is near the Southern fish warung (8 min walk from hotel). The Jimbaran beach is also 8 min walk and is a nice calm beach, but nothing spectacular. If you want to just lie on a beach with white sand and not care about having any waves, then it is a good place. Otherwise, there is NOTHING nearby. Going to Kuta or Seminyak is not as close as it may seem on the map since there is the airport in the middle and the traffic is always a disaster. It can take about 30 minutes to go to Kuta from our hotel by taxi.
There is a pretty pool which is shared by all the guests in the villa. It is very narrow and long so there isn't much room for people to swim (unless if you are the only one in the pool).
The breakfast was rather uninspired and the room service menu was extremely boring (though not bad and the service was always very very nice. There was not a single Indonesian/Balinese dish).
There is a very nice spa on the first floor. I had a fantastic massage. The therapist was very nice and skilled. However...65USD is a bit much no? That is NYC prices...Also, I can hear the motor bikes and construction noise during my entire massage so it wasn't totally relaxing.
The staff were all very nice and courteous so we have no complaints whatsoever about the service. The people were great! However, I would not categorize this as a 5 star hotel. and the location is far from ideal.
