After reading many of the positive reviews (as they should be!), there's certainly not a whole lot to add other than sharing the personal experience my wife and I enjoyed during our stay at One Eleven.
After a shaky start to our annual vacation at a sister resort, we were fortunate enough to be whisked away to One Eleven. First off, I have to congratulate the manager of both resorts, David Beevers (I know you'll be reading this), for going out of his way to make our stay as memorable as possible and making us negate the start of our trip.
One cannot help but go "Wow..." when walking into the villa. If you think you have an expectation of how it's going to be by looking at the photos, you will be blown away in reality. The decor and architecture is modern and beautiful. The colours used throughout the villa is vibrant and the whole feel of the place simply puts one into "relaxation mode". The pool is huge and absolutely divine. The bedroom is spacious with a tonne of cupboard space and an ultra comfortable bed. The bathroom doesn't leave much behind and it has one of the best showers I've ever experienced in my life!
Breakfast gets prepared in your villa by a little army of staff every morning - the food and present menu choices are great. Everything else throughout the day is only a phone call away and usually gets done within minutes. On that note: the staff at One Eleven is exceptional. It's not your average Joe Bloe staff generally found in some Bali resorts - of the conversations we enjoyed with some of the staff members revealed their previous experience in the hospitality industry in parts such as Europe and the US. And they leave no stone unturned. My wife felt sick during our first couple of nights (head cold), and upon asking the staff for directions to the nearest pharmacy, our butler asked what exactly it is we were after. After providing the detail on some meds, he returned half an hour later with the tablets - totally unexpected!
Another major plus mentioned here was access to a hotel driver. Yes, friendly gentlemen are available to drive you around locally when needed. This is a massive perk, and I'd like to thank David and his drivers for providing this service to their guests.
The whole experience is personalised, and it's the small things that really captivated us. They noticed that stack of novels next to the bed; the next day we found little bookmarks inserted where we last left off! The staff also noticed that we drink a lot of water, and so every night while preparing our room, bottled water and a glass would be placed next to the bed. Things get done without having to ask. You don't get to experience that in many places these days.
We're a very private couple, and we go to Bali to relax, recharge, and enjoy some peace and quiet. That's exactly what you can expect at One Eleven. The resort is superbly private and extremely quiet - it's as if the wider audience enjoying their stay at the resort have the same frame of mind as us! If that is the sort of break you're looking for as a couple, I cannot recommend this resort highly enough.
This place is a hidden gem and this experience has been one of our best getaways yet. The best we've had in Bali. Definitely expect us again next year One Eleven!
