We recieved a warm welcome on check in and things just got better. The staff were so helpful and their understanding of English excellent. Any problems were sorted out quickly - our hot water didn't work but only because the sticker was on the wrong way on the mixer! It was great for us as animal lovers that the wildlife is allowed to exist in harmony with the hotel you can sit at night and watch the geckos eating the flies around the lights or frogs hopping from one pond to another, if you are lucky like we were you can see some fireflies, we even had oone come in the room and every time we let it out it came back in, so we were treated to a light show in our room.
The hotel now has new owners who are great hosts and the manager Sawa is always smiling. They will arrange any excursions or trips you want to go one even at short notice. I would recommend picking up leaflets from along the street then asking sawa to arrange it for you. We had the same driver Agung throughout our stay and he was great. The advantage of this I found out one day when I lost my purse and it turned out to be in his car. Agung brought it back within 15mins and with everything still in it.
The food was amazing both Sawa and Arri (hope I've spelt his name right) cook and produce the best tasting food, especially Sawa's pumpkin soup, that was incredible.
We were originally booked in for 6 nights, but after a terrible experience in Sanur we rang Sawa and she arranged for us to come back and sent Agung to come and get us. 1 hour after contacting her Agung arrived and our rooms were waiting for us.
I really don't think I could put into words how good this place is, the people we met and chatted to round the bar were fab. I can honestly say that we arrived as strangers and left as friends.
If you want a guesthouse just for a base then this place is great but to get the best out of the place spend some evenings at the bar and you will discover the real In Da Lodge experience.
Thank you so much for making our holiday so special, we can't wait to come back and see you all again. I hope Esmerelda is ok.
