GREAT hotel wish we were there now...
We are in Bali for 3 weeks and booked this hotel for just 4 nights of our stay as we wanted to try different places...
This hotel was by far the best. The location is a bit far out but you can hire a moped or get a taxi they are both very cheap!! $5 a day for moped and about $2.50 in taxi one was to get to the shopping and beach!
The rooms are just as they look on the net massive and lovely! The place itself is like a mansion with some great furniture dotted around! ALL ROOMS HAVE A SHOWER! Breakfast is good - its not continental its an amerian which was better for us and included!. Got a great deal of expedia $50au per night couldn't have asked for a better place.
Pool is lovely and we always had it to ourselves lots of sun!
Room service took a while when we ordered pizza BUT when we found out that they had made them from scratch this changed our minds as the food was GREAT! Staff lovely and remember your name!
There is aircon!
There are no english TV channels - well there was one but it didn't work when we were there - don't let this put you off though - there is a DVD player - go buy some DVDs and watch them!
All in all a great hotel - oh forgot to mention a QUIET nights sleep its so quiet round the hotel!!!
We are just up the road in the Seri Suites now and all i am hearing is a VERY ANNOYING LOUD ROOSTER all day all night - I want to be back at this place.......in fact might go back now.....
If you choose to stay here its great and you will get some really great photos!
