“Perfect for my needs”
Reviewed December 9, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I needed a place to work on a manuscript while getting daily exercise and a change of scene. This apartment fit the bill. I spent another month in Southeast Asia since staying in that apartment, but it remains the high point of my trip.
Located in a small hotel on a secondary street in Umalas, this apartment was just what I needed: clean, functional and with a very comfortable bed. It has a basic kitchen for preparing fast meals, including a blender and filter coffee maker as well as a cooking plate and a microwave. Although the restaurant on the roof has the advantage of an afternoon breeze as well as a sunset view in the evening, there are several restaurants within walking distance when you want a change. The pool (my guess is 30 meter laps) was clean and warm enough even at seven in the morning.
Dewi, the agent, was professional and it was a delight to deal with her. Check in and out were very smooth. The hotel staff were lovely, even though there were numerous young trainees.
The downsides:
Bali is not what is was thirty years ago.
One consequence is that Jl Kerobokan, the main road about a kilometer from the hotel which you must take to go anywhere, is jammed with traffic most of the day, particularly in the direction of Kuta. For fine Western cuisine, you will have to go into Kuta. Even for a steak that is a real steak. The big supermarkets and department stores are in that direction. There is almost nothing else there except tourist traps.
Another consequence is that it is not pleasant to walk along the road just outside the hotel. Although it is not very dangerous, you do have to keep your eye on the traffic.
You cannot walk to the beach -well, I did once, on my first and only “hash“, but it took a couple of hours.
Tips:
Unless you are in a classier restaurant, order your main course only once you receive your appetizer to avoid receiving both at the same time. The same applies for beer unless you like yours warm.
The massage in the hotel and across the street are good enough. Better (and cheaper until you factor in the price of taxis as well as the time of transport) are: Reborn in Kuta and My Spa (I used the one on Jl Gatot Subroto just off Jl Kerabokan). The former has tui-na massage treatment which I have found to be the best for back and shoulder problems from years of computer use.
Dewi is an organizer of the local chapter of the Hash Harriers. Google that and see if you want to participate.
