This boutique hotel is fabulous. Tucked away in a lane off the main street, it is a calm, serene oasis in the midst of bustling Seminyak. The accommodation is in a series of separate villas set around the central pool and restaurant area. Our rooms in the 2 bedroom villa were large, and stylishly furnished in a modern tropical style, with all mod cons such as a/c, TV with cable, fantastic lighting, bar fridge and so on. The bathrooms are semi-outside in the fresh air, but discrete, giving a wonderful indoor/outdoor feeling to the design. Our villa had its own small pool, which was great for a private swim, and the large main pool was just outside the door if you wanted to stretch out a little. The hotel is not large with only about 10 villas, so there was never a crowds issue - loungers and seats at the bar were always available.
All the staff without exception were friendly and kind, and went out of their way to help us. Arrangements for day trips, taxis, late checkouts, luggage ... anything, were all made without fuss. And all the time the staff smiled and were happy. They are a great advertisement for Bali and this hotel. I took advantage of the in-house spa and had a 1 hour massage - very relaxing, and remarkable value. Ideal de-stressing.
There is a restaurant/bar area serving local and international dishes, and room service if required. We ate and drank in fairly often, as the food was good and the atmosphere so relaxing. Trips out to restaurants were easy being either a short walk or drive, and you could hail a taxi from the street if needed.There are some wonderful restaurants nearby.
Outside the hotel, the beach is not close, and it would be best to take advantage of the hotel's courtesy buggy transfer rather than a sweaty walk if that's what you want. Available at all hours. Beware that the beach and the streets are full of hawkers and hassle - be prepared for the onslaught, and if that isn't your thing stick with the hotel.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone seeking luxurious, private relaxation in Bali. Thank you Blue Karma.
