The hotel has a gorgeous pool area that leads out to the beach. We were able to leave our stuff by our pool chairs, go to the ocean for a bit, and come back and relax. It's a very short walk up the road to lots of restaurants and stores (there are so many more stores than I would have ever imagined in the Seminyak area!)
The room was huge and beautiful. We had a first-floor garden view near the pool. I'm sure the ocean-view rooms are even more impressive.
The service was wonderful -- lots of smiles everywhere.
The restaurant was quite good. The night we dined there, around 9pm, there was almost nobody there. The waiters were wonderful. The prices were quite good, given that this is a resort. It is much cheaper on the street, but the open environment, right on the pool, was wonderful.
The security is good -- they always check who's in the taxi with you when you arrive -- but not overly intrusive.
I can't think of anything I didn't enjoy during our short 2 night stay.
One thing to note, only related to the general location of the hotel, is that the traffic in Seminyak can be horrendous. It took us almost 1.5 hours to drive to Tanah Lot (about 10 miles?) at 4pm on a Saturday. It was literally quicker to walk -- we watched as people passed us several times -- all while doing their shopping. Just something to keep in mind, if you are going to go anywhere on a day-trip from the hotel.
