I was skeptical when a friend asked to book this hotel/trip for her 40 birthday getaway. It came accross like a place for lesbian lovers to hide away, and we are nothing of the sort. We had a great 10 days in Bliss. We planned excursions out (diving, cooking class, shopping) and away from Canguu, so we were not just locked behind the walls for 10 days. The villa is clean, spacious, and beautifully landscaped but right on a road so there is road noise 24/7 and earplugs were needed to sleep at night. The beds are comfortable, the mosquito nets over the beds make you feel like you are staying in a harim! The carved wood door surrounds are incredible, but does let in the heat so the AC is not terribly efficent but it does the job. There are not enough hooks in the bath/bedroom to hand up your stuff to dry. There is no enclosed, airconditioned space where you can work out/treadmill so I had to get up before sunrise to run every day as after sunrise the heat was too unsafe to be exercising. The food was wonderful and boasted a sufficient menu to offer lots of choice, including gluten-free. The personal driver was a great added touch, but I especially liked the selections of sarongs that were provided daily since many days I did nothing more than get up, put on a sarong and laze by the pool. I read more books and watched more movies in 10 days that I do in 10 months... literally!!! And the 90 minute massage every day was absolutely heavenly! Canguu is a little out of the way and it is a 15 min ride into Seminyak to find any nightlife, but the seclusion during the day is a welcome respite to the professional/busy woman. I would highly recommend this property and would definately choose to stay there again if I plan a trip back to Bali.
