We booked to at the Chedi Club after a grueling 14 day birding trip to Sulawesi staying in some very basic accomodation feeling that we deserved a little pampering after our exertions.
The pool villa was all that we wanted a private oasis in which we could lock ourselves away and rest. We only called on the butler to deliver our afternoon tea and collect laundry and he respected our privacy.
In the public areas however the manner of the staff was somewhat over zelous for our personel taste, although we can imagine others might be flattered by so much attention. At meal times a constant tide of waiters were in attendance clearing away dishes at lightening speed and ever watching for an opportunity to be of service. On top of all this an array of managers seemed at hand to enquire if we were satisfied and engage us in conversation. We are perhaps an exceptionto the rule but feel that perfect service should be ubobtrusive and in our opinion slightly less fuss would result in that perfection.
We cannot agree that food and drinks were overpriced as they were somewhat less costly than top class international hotels the world over. After the excellent breakfast, afternoon tea, mini bar and evening cocktails all of which were included in the room rate there was little need to buy additional food or drink other than perhaps a glass of wine with dinner.
The surroundings were extremly peaceful and the hotel grounds magnificent, which for us added up to the perfect locationfor our break without the need to explore further.
