Wonderful location, brilliant staff, great selection of drinks and food. Yet again the best time to visit is during happy hour as drinks are very expensive!

I enjoyed a wonderful couple of cocktails with Wahyuni at the chess beachfront bar! She is a lovely and sweet bartender who I had a fun chat with and kept me in very high spirits! We discussed the Bali culture and she even taught me...some of her native language. Very happy to recommend her and her cocktail skills to anyone. Thank you Wahyuni! I’ll be back tomorrow for another delicious mojito ❤️More

I went over to Bali in November/December for a get away with 3 generations of my family myself girlfriend sister parents and grandparents. It was great the service that made the stay awesome. Especially the pool bar (cheese bar) staff! Yohan who was a very...special part of our experience looking after myself but more importantly my Nana who is quite elderly ( +80) he made sure we were happy and looked after anything we needed. Plus was great to talk to about the spirit of Bali. Looking forward to the next time we visit. But as it wasn't my first trip I thought I knew what to expect but the service exceed the expectations I had. Many thanks to the team that make it happen.More

We stayed at the Resort and would come for happy hour to see Anggara each day! He sure knows how to make you feel at home and promotes such happy vibes and a good time! I cant thank him enough for the most genuine experience...and to have met a new friend. Such a great man to speak with, humble and kind with a smile that brings one to your own! He truly is an artist with the cocktails also! Not enough good things to say about our experience. We had such a blast meeting new friends at the bar each day to hang out with Anggara! Truly the best vibes! Sooksma!🙏More
