This is an amazing resort - my wife and I spent 5 nights in a plunge pool villa on our honeymoon and were thoroughly impressed, and didn't want to leave.
Some specific stand out positives:
- the room was impeccable... Stylish decor, private feel to the deck and plunge pool, fridge full of complimentary drinks, massive bath
- muffins and orange juice left waiting outside our room before we woke up
- free first cocktail at the bar very night
- awesome infinity pool but we hardly went there as our own pool was fantastic
- the resort was nearly empty during our September stay so felt extra exclusive
Some points to improve on:
- not a lot of options on the dinner menu
- limited boat schedule to the mainland and also to the sister Gayana resort
- the pantai grill restaurant was only open for 2 out of 5 nights (I guess due to the weather but they could have let us know difinitively either way so we could make plans)
Overall we would love to go back, thanks very much!
