I moved here after looking at the villa ombak property where the rooms were small and the bathrooms were not very nice. The hotel itself and facilities are lovely. It's in the best part of the island as it is very secluded away from some of the other properties. The pool is very large and the beach bar is great with a lovely hammock. You also get the best view of the sunset over mount agung here, really stunning.
I would however agree with people's comments that service is pretty up and down. Sometimes it is great at other times you can wait for a very long time to be served. The shop was shut at one point and it took 20 minutes and me getting 3 staff to get it open. The insects at the restaurant were also a real annoyance. I didn't experience this problem at Bali at all at any other places.
All in all I think there are probably better options on the island and some exciting new ones also opening up.
This is definitely not a four star or five star. A decent 3 I would say. If you want really luxury head to Lombok and as some others have said stay at the oberoi which is amazing.
