I was planning to spend 3 nights at Cili Emas with my wife as part of our honeymoon. I chose it because I found very good reviews for it however what I saw was completely different. Firstly the location is far away more than you can imagine and it's totally disconnected from any life outside, which means that you are obliged to take their food because you cannot simply go outside the hotel. The place is not clean at all, we found many lizards running around us while we were having dinner, one of the other guests found a lizard on his knee while he was eating. The rooms are missing the very basic criteria for any hotel/motel room, it has nothing except for bed and small closet and an old box fan( which are in very bad condition ). The room is not having even a telephone, so if you want anything you have to go to the reception. The bathroom is not even equipped with any shampoo/shower gel, it only has a bar soap which is already used before. Quality of the bed is very bad and we couldn't even sleep taking into consideration that I booked the Lumbung Villa which is the best category they have. They have a very strange system in the restaurant where all the guests in the hotel should all have their meals together on one table which is not convenient at all. As well they have set menu for lunch & dinner so you are again obliged to eat whatever they cooked regardless you like it or not. The pool is very bad, very dirty and small. They don't accept credit / debit cards and they only accept cash, and the closest ATM is 40 minutes away and it only accepts Mastercard. The beach is very small and it's having black dirty rocks, so you cannot even take a walk on the beach.
Overall, I don't recommend this place by all means. It's the worst hotel I seen ever.
