The best choice we made in accommodation in Bali! The place is immaculate, quiet, peaceful, charming, and exotic. It was such relief to come here after the craziness of Seminyak. We had the whole hotel to ourselves as the only guests during our 2 night stay. You would never know we were the only ones there, as the place was still fully staffed just for us!
The breakfast was beautiful and we did order dinner from The West End down the road one night. Very lovely! The hotel uses a driver that lives near by, "Wayan," and it was very convenient to use him for transport. You can also do the lovely walk into town. It is a bit far considering the hot sticky weather, but you have to do it at least once because it is just so enchanting. Otherwise you can get taxis everywhere. The hotel does offer a drop off into town once a day at 10:30am.
We also had a spa treatment at the hotel. One of the scrubs and a 60 minute couples massage. Unlike most other nice hotels, this hotel doesn't jack up the spa prices. I think it was like $30 for this 2.5 hour treatment and totally worth it!!
My suggestions for this wonderful place to be even better is firstly, when it is time to replace the mattresses, go with something a little softer. The bed was too hard for me. Also, include a more substantial blanket. My husband likes to sleep with the air conditioning super cool, so I was left a little cold. Also, include larger bottles of water, we had to buy water everyday, which we shouldn't have to do for paying what we paid to stay there. Finally, during the spa treatment, the therapists did not give us privacy to undress before we began. This didn't really bother me, but I could see how this might bother other guests. Everything was just out in the open! Haha!
We really loved our stay at this lovely intimate hotel and will definitely return and recommend to all who are traveling to Bali. The staff are also so accommodating and just aim to please. We wish we would have stayed longer at this hotel!
