We booked the package (2 nights, massages. food, transfer - $200), which was a complete bargain. The room was spectacular and the whole place was lovely.
The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is because although the staff were friendly they were extremely irritating. I understand that everyone is needs to get money to get by but we were persistantly approached by staff in the hotel whilst eating, drinking, or doing anything to book a trip through them. We even said to one maybe and he informed us he had booked us on to a boat later in the day. The management need to stop this as it puts a real dampener on the experience. I expect the hawkers in the street but I don't want to be seen as a dollar sign whilst i'm eating my pancakes!
The Nasi Goreng was delicious and you might get lucky and get the room with a bottle of Johnny Walker I left in the mini bar- although I am sure the bottle will have been found - the price inflated and then resold to make as much money out of us as possible.
