My boyfriend and I are traveling around Bali for a month on business so sleep and space is the most important thing to us! When we arrived we received the welcome drink and signed in. We mentioned we were on our anniversary when we booked through booking.com which they had read and said congratulations, I have found that hotels, etc don't always read these things... We got to the room and they had put rose petals everywhere and in the bath, in hearts, so sweet of them! They left the room, 5 mins later were back with a cake! We were so surprised, and they cake was yummy too!
As the Astri opened in August 2012 it's really new, we loved this fact, the showers are great, the aircon is quiet, everything works well. We counted 14 rooms, we love the fact there aren't many rooms as service is always better. The rooms are really clean too.
They don't have a chef yet, but they do do breakfast, there are the usual 3 choices, I'm not the biggest breakfast fan, I find it's pretty standard and I'm really fussy! But the fruit is good! The best place in Bali for breakfast is The Dipan Hotel in Seminyak, they poached the top chef near to them and it makes the most difference, people should learn from this...! Whoever reads this really should go there and then tell me about it!!!
The Astari has really good service, they are so helpful, but their English unfortunately isn't the best, I'm sure they will improve as time goes by, maybe the owner should do lessons for all staff?! But like I said, they will get it in the end, and they are lovely.
You will need a bike or you will be getting taxi's all the time, we always rent a scooter. Down the road you have the white sandy beach with the fish restaurants on the beach, they are all as good as each other I think, fresh and so cheap, we had lobster, snapper and loads of other food and drink for about £25, amazing! We live in London, this would have cost an arm and a leg!
Jimbaran is a lovely little place, quiet and beautiful, there is a shopping centre in Nusa Dua, built just for tourists, very safe, its quite big and has and inside and outside with loads of restaurants near the beach.
I would say that Jimbaran is the place just to relax, sleep well and get some sun! The pool at The Astari is a good size to do lengths in and it's so quiet. Kuta is only a 20min drive if you want more of a night life.
You won't be disappointed staying at The Astari.
