Staying at Damai has been a dream come true! Total privacy, the best food you can imagine, private pools and an excellent staff.

Our private butler, Eka made our stay unforgettable, thank you!

We will definitely be back and can only recommend it to anybody that appreciate a exclusive experience in the most tranquil surroundings.

Arrived at the Damai after a long and tiring drive from Ubud. Very pleasantly surprised by both the place and the attentiveness of its staff. This sensation persisted throughout the stay.

The villa, a few steps down from the pool area, past the spa, was in fact a quaint little private house surrounded by luscious vegetation. Its stunning interior spacious and immaculate, with lovely touches here and there. The bathroom felt tiny, but had a very private and sunny outdoors shower area the size of a small garden, lined with vines and with a natural hot tub. There is free wfi in and around the villas.

The Damai is famous for its food, locally sourced and also produced at the resort (try to book an early morning tour of the food market with the Chef if available) Every night there is a set menu of stunning Balinese cuisine, plus Western and other Asian choices in the à la carte menu. Dinner is served by the pool (reserve early in the day) and in an upstairs dining area, where breakfast is also served. Breakfast is excellent too (Japanese breakfast is a must - and if it comes with smoked mahi, make sure that any breeze blows away from you - you'll see why!)

The pool area is lovely, reminded me of summer holidays in the Spanish countryside.

There is a shuttle service to and from Lovina. I found the service very accommodating. Lovina is not the greatest town, but ok for a brief change of scenery (the 'Sea' temple by the main beach, Pura Segara Kaibukbuk, is worth a look). There's an ATM and some bars but you'll get hassled by tour operators and assorted people peddling their wares - TOP TIP: if you plan any excursions or need transportation just ask at the resort, you won't get a better deal in Lovina.

All in all a very pleasant experience. Like other reviewers, found it hard to leave. Would most definitely visit again.

There is something special about the Damai. It's listed as a four star resort but it's clearly a five star property; in the process of trying to find out who is behind it (a Dane) we found out that members of the Danish royal family stay here and it's not hard to see why.

The grounds are immaculate and the landscaping and lighting have been done beautifully. There are only 14 villas which means all the staff seem to know your name. Villas are made up and turned down by magic while you're out at breakfast and dinner.

The food and drink is not only outstanding but some real thought has been put into it. Many of the ingredients are grown on the grounds. The menu is changed every day. The club sandwich is the best I have ever had in a hotel.

We also enjoyed the drive from up from Denpasar, which took us through the heart of the island with some great views.

An excellent hotel and we would definitely return.

We had a 3 night stay in our pool villa, Uhma Dewi. The contemporary Asian style room included outdoor shower, massive bath, day bed and a pretty large pool for a villa; it was like having your own house. The spa facility is a must, we enjoyed a 2 hour treatment of massage and a facial that was absolute bliss. We also enjoyed a morning yoga class that was a great start to the day. The sari class is a must, it was inexpensive, relaxing and makes you feel a part of the culture rather than just observing. All of the staff, from reception, spa, restaurant and the groundskeepers who keep this place looking immaculate were attententive, welcoming and thorough. The food menu is small, but everything is done very well and all meals were fantastic. Our two tips for staying at Damai: look carefully at the spa/accommodation packages offered as they are great value. Secondly, Lovina is a small town, you come to Damai to relax and enjoy the resort, not to shop or eat out.
