The 3 villas are surrounded by small rice paddies, with spectacular views up to Gunung Agun, ( in the morning before the clouds form) and down to the sea on the other side.
After sunrise, the colours are spectacular, and for birdwatchers I spotted a long tailed shrike and a Java pond Heron in 10 minutes before going to breakfast.
The Thai specialities on the menu are very good, backed up by traditional Indonesian cooking.
The waiter was very helpful and gave us a lot of interesting local information.
When we arrived they were building an additional bungalow next door, but when I spoke to the manager, he immediately moved the workers away from the site to continue on another offsite project, so that we would have no disturbance during our stay.
We hired a car and driver from the owners family for a day tour, and he was a very mature and safe driver, which is an important plus factor given the dense road traffic and potholed roads in Bali.
