My husband and I had a wonderful time at this resort and spa. Having never been to Bali, the resort was able to arrange a pick up from the airport (about 1.5 hours away). Upon checking in, we were greeted with cool towels and a welcome drink. The entire time we were there, the staff were more than helpful and always willing to answer any questions. The location was perfect (close to town) but in a quieter, relaxing area.

Pros:
Easy walk into town to restaurants - about a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) with lots to see on the way

Beautiful Pool

Well manicured grounds

Wonderful staff - everyone was so willing to help if you had any questions. They were always friendly and extremely accommodating.

Cons:
Try to upsell you on check in for multiple things. We booked through RCI and while we understand that room types are based on availability, we were told that only singles were available on checkin BUT (for an additional cost) we could upgrade. We relayed to them that we were fine with singles and did not want to pay the additional cost and would check the next morning for a double at which time the cost to upgrade continued to decrease. We continued to say we were not interested which they finally understood. The next morning we went down early and a room was available (which wasn't the night before?). This frustrated us as we knew that a room was available but we were pushed to upgrade for additional cost.

The other upsell was for the breakfast. We were initially told we HAd to buy 5 days of breakfast for the 'deal'. When we told him, we were only staying for 4 days, this immediately became ok. We did not want breakfast (we ate outside the resort for more variety), however they continued to try to sell breakfast tickets. We understand we are in Indonesia, however it would be helpful for those working at the front desk to not continually push if it is not wanted.

Distance from airport - wasn't a big deal as we wanted to be far but if you are looking for something close, this is not it.

Otherwise, the trip was fantastic. The resort is a great escape and we would recommend this to others .

This is our third trip this the hotel and I can not rate it highly enough. It is always clean, the staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble,

It is a perfect spot for relaxing, quiet and tranquil and after the busyness of Kuta is just what you need.

Make sure you take a walk around and into town, you will see much more and experience Bali as Bali should be.

Room Tip: We always stay in the Suites or the poolside bungalows. So much room, and decadent.

Ver enjoyable stay. Resort was beautifully kept, rooms were spacious and had great views, from our bedroom door we could see and hear the ocean. Resturant was okay but we liked to venture out to get dinner as it was cheaper, had more variety and was better food. Staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful. Views from the pool and lounge area amazing. Poo, was clean and well kept, good design. Loved the way it was off the main road so you didn't hear the noise of the area, even though the area was actually quite quiet and ver nice to all around and explore. Resort offers activities to show you around the area and give you a taste of the local life. Would definitely go back again next time we visit Bali.

Room Tip: The bungalows at the front are well worth th extra cost, ocean views and close to pool area.
