Im half way into my stay and it is my first time in Bali. Overall i would have to say the accommodation and level of service from lower level staff have been superb and super hands on.
The complex itself gives a very new vibe and i would say that i would definitely come back with only some minor hold backs.
The location itself is decent. It is right next to the main strip though it is advised that if you are into buying cheap and replica items then your at prime location. Having said that it isnt exactly walking distance if you are not use to the heat.
The staff are super attentive and do definitely feel like royalty with their above and beyond attitude. That cant be said the same for the higher manager. During my tenure I would call her the smiling wolf. Almost all staff here give you the perception of honesty but I felt her desire to up sell for additional revenue rubbed me the wrong way. i.e. It was clear to me getting from point x to point y may only take 20 mins, but to test waters Id ask once again and though a staff was about to confirm I was correct, a nudge and talk over to say it took double the time. Another incident would be the hiring of the hotel car only needing 5 hours she would try sell me 8 AFTER being told by the actual driver it costs 100k less. That aside i do stand patient if there are misunderstanding with general staff as english is not their mother tongue.
As for amenities, personal preference would be body wash over soup. The shower head does lack abit of water pressure and hot water does take a while. In terms of breakfast or other food orders, it is operated by a cafe near by. My stay came from discount vouchers therefore breakfast was free, so i guess you pay for what you get so dont expect too much. Paid component is of value but dont expect it to be Michelin quality.
Cant say enough about how great the staff less manager is...pool is fantastic..taxis can be unsure where you stay so make sure you have net access to guide them...
will be hitting up the massages in the next few days..so maybe more to come..but hope for a strong finish!
Thats my 2 cents thus far^^
