We were staying at Medewi Bay Retreat from 13 Dec to 15 Dec. The staff were friendly especially front desk reception staff 'Ika'. We arrived late around 10.30 pm travelling for about almost 4 hours from the airport .We were tired and hungry. I called Ika to inform her we will be late and enquired if there is room service. She said the restaurant will close at 11pm but she went out of the way to ensure the staff prepared some sandwiches and cold drinks. And when we arrived the restaurant staff were still around and helped us get settled in the room. We were so grateful for the sandwiches and drinks. The restaurant staff attending to us during our daily meals ensured we were comfortable and enjoyed our meals.
The Medewi Beach is lovely and perfect place for those who want to surf and the Rambut Siwi Temple overlooking the sea is a great sight. The resort is far away from many attractions and time is spent on just travelling. The resort is in need of renovation as it seems a little rundown. But it is a great place for travellers who want a quiet place to relax. The plus point of the retreat is its staff who provided excellent service.

If you are looking for peace and quiet, no crowds in the pool, beautiful staff to help you eat to your hearts content you are in the right place. Rooms vary to your requirements, singles, doubles, and the family and friends, all can be taken care of. All self contained if you wish. We took a bus trip with the locals into Negara a 50 minute fun ride away. The Retreat can take care of your travel arrangements, safely and easily with fun drivers. We asked them to arrange a driving trip and an overnight stay, then a tour for the way home, easy done and a great pleasure. We celebrated our anniversary and all the staff were great with flowers and a special Bali pancake as a treat. There is also a local fish cafe on the beach with stunning fresh seafood. Just pack you bags and head up the coast away from the crazy of Kuta.

Room Tip: Studio rooms for two people, two bedroom villas, three bedroom villas all self contained if you wish to be a bit private.

We spent a few nights in a one bedroom apartment and it was clean and comfortable. The apartment could do with a make over and refresh.

The location is quiet and isolated from tourist things. But it is a great place to relax and unwind.

The staff were all really good and have nothing but complements from us.

The food is really good at the restaurant. We tried the local, Indian and western.

We used local buses to visit negera, which is the nearest town. Also, rambut siwi temple. Both places were worth a visit, especially the temple. Amazing place.

Just back from holiday and found this resort to be lovely. Staff wonderful. Nothing too much trouble. Manager went above and beyond to get gift my friend was looking for husband. When our flight delayed were more than happy for us to stay till 7pm no extra charge. Resort is long way from Kuta but to me that was attraction

My husband and I stayed at Medewi Bay Retreat after finding it in the RCI network. We originally booked a studio, but after inquiry decided to upgrade to one of the villas that had a swimming pool. We stayed in Hibisbus 6A and had an absolute fabulous 7 night holiday, striking up a comfortable friendship with the owners of the adjoining villa 6B. All we can say is this is the place to go if you truly want to experience the real Bali. You are no where near the hectic city with all the traffic, people, noises and building. You are truly tucked away in the heart of Bali. If you're looking for fancy extras, monogramed towels and cute tiny bottles of shampoo, this is not the place for you. If you are truly looking to get away, relax and meet some of the nicest, genuine staff, come here. If you really want to leave the office behind, and slip into the beauty of the real Bali, come here. If you want to enjoy a place where they choose to care about you personally, and make you feel like a special guest, this is the place for you. However, if you like paying a lot of money for those cute little bottles of shampoo at resorts where they only care if your credit card still works, well ..... there's always Kuta. As for me and my husband, we choose Medewi and will most likely be back!
