This hotel is a little gem. It’s quite small with a number of little individual chalets off a main walkway, surrounded by gardens and ponds with fish. There is a lovely pool and a restaurant area. The rooms are squeaky clean, a lovely comfortable netted four poster bed and TV. The main room however was too small for us to have both suitcases open (we were here 2 days as part of a tour) but we managed with a bit of manoevering. If you were staying longer though you could unpack a bit and would be fine. There was a safe. The bathroom is cool as is an ‘outside’ bathroom although very private and secure. The shower/bath area is all done in stone and it’s lovely having the fresh air whilst bathing. Also there was no problem with flooding or poor ventilation as experienced in other hotels in Bali. The staff were excellent, customer service skills were very good and without exception everyone was friendly and helpful, everyone from the receptionist to the waiting staff to the maintenance workers. We spent a lovely afternoon on the sun deck and had a lovely swim in the lovely cool pool. There were tea and coffee facilities on the veranda of each chalet – a hot water jug being replenished each day. There was a choice of 4 set menus (seafood, chicken, beef, vegetarian) for our dinner on the first night, a set lunch the following day and a BBQ evening on the 2nd evening we were there. The set menu dinners were really lovely – we had chicken and fish and the Indonesian lunch the following day was equally good. The BBQ buffet was good but the meat being cooked to order was not the best I’ve had and the organisation was a bit chaotic, but I didn’t really mind as had enough nice things to eat and had a few beers whilst watching some Balinese dancers the hotel had by the pool area that evening. Best of all we used the spa. For less than £50 my partner and I both had an amazing massage and treatments, for 2 hours. Bliss. I was sad to leave this hotel as really could have enjoyed a day or two more however there isn’t much to do locally outside and there isn’t a beach – we just stayed en route to our next destination, so if you’re looking for somewhere small and lovely to spend a couple of days on a tour I would recommend this hotel.
