Gusti and the lads are all very friendly, but I felt a little isolated when I first arrived, as I had to ask a lot of questions about meal times, drinking water and the basic running of the place which I thought could have been explained better. I think they may be geared towards groups more so than solo travellers, as there were several groups already there who by all accounts were having a ball. This place (and area) is very popular with French people. It is a beautiful location, with many opportunities for hiking and touring the surrounding hills and villages. It is a lot cooler here than on the coast, and I didn't see any mossies or half starved dogs which seem to be everywhere else in Bali. The communal meals were traditional and very good, but the set meal times (8am b/fast, 1-2pm lunch and 8pm dinner) have to be worked around. My elevated room was very nice with an excellent bed and pillows, but I found the downstairs bathroom to be a pain. I would definitely not like to be stricken with a dose of Bali Belly and have to negotiate the narrow, spiral staircase in the middle of the night! There was also nowhere to hang towels, clothes etc, so I found myself having to store things on top of the toilet lid while I was having a shower. I suggested to Gusti to put some hooks on the back of the door at least, and he said he would get onto it. Jono took me to a nearby waterfall after b/fast, and we had to shelter at the village bath on the way back when we got caught in a downpour, but I enjoyed the walk and the company very much. I also had a good talk with Cardek on my last night, and was impressed about how happy all the lads working here are. Gusti has big plans for the Atres Villa, and I wish him well!
