My husband and I had always enjoyed the collection eclectic and sometimes strange atmosphere of the Tugu Restaurants in Jakarta and thought it might be interesting to spend our 7th year anniversary in one of their hotels.
So being the detailed planner and budgeter that I am, I had begun to email back and forth with the guest relations at Tugu Bali, preparing and scheduling everything from what daily activities we planned to do, where we planned to go and where we planned to eat around the hotel (you can request your bfast/meals anywhere on their property). Hence all this was executed by the Tugu staff without much of a problem.
This detailed planning on our part, also allowed us to be prepared with how much money we were going to spend on our short trip there. Yes, staying at Tugu is no where near moderately priced. It is definitely up on the high end scale. When you have mentally prepared for this, then when you get there you can just simply enjoy it.
We stayed for 3 nights during the NYEPI holiday period on their "Revitalization at Waroeng Jamu Spa Package". We did not go wrong in choosing the Walter Spies Pavilion as our room, as it was private, beautiful, but low keyed with a serene atmosphere all around. The massages and spa treatments we had were divine and truly put us in an sublime state. The ala carte breakfast was delicious, varied and catered to almost all tastes. The dinner on the beach and cooking class was nicely executed. We really did relaxed and unwind in our 3 day stay there.
The decor and museum like pieces/ artifacts in their public rooms/areas can be strange and even wacky wild for some, but a welcomed different feel for us, as we have stayed in various luxury resorts and 5 star hotels around the world.
So, if you have the right mind set and mood to enjoy a differently unique type of luxury, or "tired" of the usual 5 star hotel or resort feel, Tugu should be a welcomed experience since Tugu tries to present to their guests an experience that is base on rich local history and rooted deep in ancient legends. This is definitely not your typical 5 star resort...
