This has been a long overdue review as we stayed at this wonderful place of Agung Rai in Sept 2013.
This resort gives you a wonderful sense of calm and wonder - everything here seems to be in harmony with nature. The landscape and layout of this resort make you wonder how much careful planning and detailed thoughts have been put into ensuring you have a sense of marvel of the place. Tastefully done, every corner and space has Agung Rai's art collection stamped all over. His museum of course is the center of the attraction here - the breadth and gravitas of his collections especially of Balinese art speak well of his great and voracious taste, that the whole of Bali celebrates (see Pasifika Museum in Nusa Dua acknowledging the priceless collections of Mr Rai in their map of Bali art museums). Nature, art and inner peace blend in well together in this place.
Without any prompt, the staff kindly prepared and delivered to our room a gourmet artisan cake for my wife during her birthday - to her absolute delight! The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, especially those on the restaurant, coffee bar and spa. There is a sense of art and heart with the way their food are prepared and served, as well as how their service are delivered, a real Balinese treat. The early morning nature tour exclusively provided by Mr Rai takes you to the more natural and cultural history of the community - a good way of personally getting to know the man and his philosophy.
We left the place with a renewed and calmed mind and hearts - though I must admit that we did not want to leave the place at all.
