My wife and I stayed for 4 days in May - first time in Byron for ages. We were pleased to be out of the rat race downtown and found Spirit Of Bali to be relaxed, casual yet classy...and only a short walk from the shops/restaurants and the beach. The owner couldn't have been more helpful: she even booked the shuttle to and from the airport for us, which is the only way to do it - it drops you right at the door! Didn't need a hire car at all, which made it even more of a holiday.
We lit the fire at night, slept in an ornate 4 poster (with a mozzie net - which we didn't need), took walks on the beach and didn't wear shoes. It was all very low key - and just they way we like it.
