One of the best resorts we've been to. Our comparables include top notch resorts in the maldives, tahiland and bali.
Villas. Best villa ever. Enormous living room and private plunge pool. Probably too big to be called a plunge pool. Abt 7 meters long? We stayed at an ocean view villa. Not really an ocean view. Think better to go either cliff or garden view.
Beach. Beautiful private/very secluded beach. Not sure why more guests dont make their ways down to this beautiful beach! Although it says u cant swim, u actually can if u are an intermediate/advanced swimmer. During the low tides, was able to swim around/through the corals and befriend various types of fish. Probably the best aspect of this resort especially when there really isnt any pure white sand/private beach in bali.
Foods. Ok, so this is one of the areas that need improvements. Especially Bambu! Staffs there are pretty much clueless and not so friendly. Sorry, but the manager there needs to brighten up a little. Not so friedly especially during breakfasts. Maybe the guy needs to sleep more. Also the kithen is extermely slow. Takes forever to get anythig. Also the menu.. Limited and the quality is subpar especially when compared to other banyan restaurants we have been to.
Overall, the resort deserves five stars for all categories if it werent for Bambu. Having said that, u probably cant find any better resorts in bali, so should go for it.
