“Reasonably Pleasant”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I think it is common knowledge that the stretch of beach where this resort is located is nothing to write home about. Yes, it is a health or wellness resort, so No smoking, No Tvs, No drinks service after dinner hours.

It is immediately apparent that Spa resort is an incarnation of a previous resort. The rooms are generous in size, but shows it's age, e.g. yellowish plastic phone which is without outside line. Layout is quite outdated and isn't the norm of a standard YTL hotel. The first room I checked into has a water leak right above the toilet seat. A room change was requested and apologetically arranged. I am disappointed to see an average woolen blanket being offered as a standard. These day an age, and with YTL's reputation, a common white duvet is expected.

The service of staff is very good though, everyone from front desk to restaurant staff and spa staff were all pleasant and professional. The pool area and gardens were kept very well.

I was on a full board plan and found the F&B offerings to be adequate but not spectacular. A usual good selection for breakfast and lunch, but I do find the food at dinner to be regularly of dish-out plan from a huge pot e.g. casseroles with rice, curry with rice etc. Yes, I understand this is a health resort, but for a big man like myself, the portions were too small. I asked for seconds but were told only fixed courses allowed and I will be charged extra for more; having said this, the restaurant manager did offer extra. The desserts were often tiny bits of local Indonesian cakes etc.

I appreciate the effort from all staff members, and the thoughtfulness of an invitation to dine with the GM and other hotel guests, as I am a lone traveler.

All in all, a good, relaxing stay, but found it to be too far, too healthy and could of gotten the same somewhere closer to Ubud, or Seminyak area. There are no shops etc near by, so bring your own snacks and booze if you want some late night drinks.

We stated here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. It was a great way to finish an action packed 11 nights. The whole place was extremely relaxing and the foot scrub on arrival was perfect. Lots of so many little touches such as poems left in our room and a rise petal bath. Food was very very good and there was a great choice on the breakfast menu. The spa itself is the best I have ever been too. So many small touches such as frozen fruit and a drink before every treatment. The staff were very accommodating if you wanted to change treatments at short notice. We did the sunset cruise on a traditional Balinese boat which was rather interesting. We also did the snorkelling trip which was good fun. There is no bar whatsoever so when the restaurant closes the only alcohol around is that in your fridge. However, there is a small shop just up the road. Beautiful place but may get bored after 3 nights if you trouble keeping still!!!

We stayed here for three nights as part of our honeymoon. It's a lovely peaceful and relaxing place, and a great place to visit if you are into spa treatments. Healthy breakfasts and evening meals are included in the price. The staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. The only downside was that we couldn't swim in the sea or do any boat trips when we were there because the sea was too rough, but that isn't the fault of the hotel!

Would definitely recommend this for a honeymoon destination - my husband and I loved our stay here. Did not have the best flights to get to Bali and then combined with a 3 hour drive from the airport to the resort, we were exhausted to say the least. However, as soon as we arrived, we were greeted with a foot bath and neck/shoulder massage which is just what we needed.

We were pleased to hear daily spa treatments were included in our package and they had tailored it so we could experience a variety of treatments. The massages are absolutely amazing, they create such a lovely atmosphere it's easy to nod off. In fact, we ended up getting extra treatments!

The room was spacious, clean and well-kept. We received complimentary bottles of water everyday and our room attendants left us a few sweet surprises sometimes.

The resort is quite small but it gives it a special and exclusive feel. The pool is beautiful. There are canopy beds dotted around for lounging in. There is also easy access to the black sand beach. There is limited wi-fi access in the lobby which is good if need to use but love the lack of wifi - feel like we could really relax and forget about the world, especially on our honeymoon. There is also a tv room and mini library if needed.

We stayed on a full board basis which is the best option as the resort is remote. There is a mini-mart just at the outside entrance of the resort if you're out of options! The food is michelin-style food - my husband certainly enjoyed all the authentic Balinese dishes. I was concerned as I have many food allergies but chef Martin and his team made a fantastic effort to cater to my requirements.

We went on a few trips - although these are quite long in terms of distance as Tembok is away from the touristy part of Bali, they were worth the trips. The staff were excellent at helping us plan these trips. Having celebrated my birthday at the resort, I must stay it was fantastic - with planning from my husband and the staff, it was certainly a birthday to remember with dinner on the beach underneath the stars and a sunset boat ride.

The staff are on another level. They suggest an itinerary and then we can tailor it if needed. I certainly enjoyed the yoga class and meditation walk on the beach. This resort has one of the best levels of service I have encountered in my many travels and I would 100% recommend it to others. Thank you so much for a fantastic honeymoon!

I cannot put into words just how magical Spa Village is. From the moment you arrive you are wowed by the serenity of the resort and the warm welcome from the staff.

The staff go above and beyond to make your stay perfect - I enjoyed chatting to 'Norman' the gardener, the pool boys and the restaurant staff and finding out more about their lives in Bali.

The restaurant is like fine dining every day! I'm a fussy eater and was nervous beforehand that there would not be enough choice for someone 'difficult' like me. However, Chef Martin and his team do a wonderful job, cooking up healthy, tasty meals and ensuring that there is something for everyone on the menu.

The Spa treatments helped to aid relaxation and rejuvenation and it was such a treat to have a daily treatment included in our package.

I chose to have a Reiki session with Sharon during my stay and cannot recommend this enough! Sharon is lovely and her positive energy is infectious - I feel that she has helped to give me a new lease of life - thank you Sharon.

The location of Spa Village is idyllic - far away from the hustle and bustle and well worth the long journey if you seek true escapism. The black sand beach, palm trees and volcanic peaks in the backdrop give it an ethereal quality and to experience this you must do a sunset cruise on a jukong; a traditional Balinese fishing boat, looking back towards the island from the Bali Sea.

It is impossible to criticise Spa Village, however, if I was to suggest one thing that could be improved upon, it would be evening entertainment. Apart from dinner in the evenings, there isn't much else to do and guests return to their rooms early. I think that a bar where guests could mingle in the evenings after dinner, whilst soaking up the tranquil atmosphere, would work really well.

We spent 1 week here as the culmination to a 3 week long hectic java/balinese cultural discovery holiday and I cannot say enough good things about this place. I dont think anyone who stays here will be able to adequately put into words the feeling they get from this spa village of complete body and mind relaxation and healing.

The 3 hour drive direct from denpassar airport (depending on traffic) can sound daunting but you know it was worth it from the moment you enter down the bamboo lined driveway and are greeted with a foot bath and shoulder and neck rub.

The reception looks down towards the pool area and restaurant with a large grassy common area in between. There are dozens of frangipani trees lining the paths amidst the ubiquitous coconut palms. The rooms have ground floor or balcony options and all look out to the common area which in itself radiates peacefulness back at you.

The spa has a multitude of activities available throughout every day. Many to do with balinese culture and crafts but also yoga sessions and group activities outside the spa. So you dont need to just sit by the pool and drink their delicious and healthy fruit smoothies all day.

They have some of the best staff we encountered in all of Bali who greeted us by name every day and went out of their way to make our stay feel personal and special.

The executive chef and his team create simply superb set course menus for the three meals each day that blended local flavours with european styles or offered classic Balinese warang street food choices but served to you like you were sitting in a Michelin star worthy restaurant. We never felt the need to want to eat outside the spa during our stay.

And of course I have to mention the point of the resort... the massages/treatments. So many different treatments to choose from, not enough hours in each day to fit them all in. We definately recommend consulting with the knowledgeable staff about what would suit you best during your stay.

This resort is very much a place of relaxation, peacefulness and healing for all who enter. They dont force anything upon you, but they do gently offer options for you throughout your stay that help to teach you how to treat your body and mind a bit better than when you first arrived.

We recommend going with the full board option and staying at least 5 days to be able to absorb everything this place offers. Try out as many of the activities that you can and dont be shy about asking for private tuition if something takes your fancy.

My stay at Spa Village Tembok was wonderful on so many levels. I was travelling solo for that week but haven't had a meal on my own once. You'll find other guests mingle with each other very easily, yet if you are on your honeymoon you'll have total space to enjoy your time together. Best of both worlds. Martin the chef and his team cook up this healthy and very tasty menu every day using only local organic produce of the best quality. I caught myself eating deserts twice daily :) . Spa Village staff are more then a team around you, you feel like you've stepped into a family and you're a very welcome guest. You have the beach (better beach then Seminyak), the pool, the daily spa treatments (all home made organic products!), the daily classes such as jamu making, boreh making, cooking etc you can do as many or little as you like. Yuyun the spa manager tailored my spa treatments so that I could take the most out of it. It's the first time I felt like I didn't want to leave a resort! They also organise trips out for you and I had the chance to see the dolphins in Lovina which was lovely. The daily yoga classes are a great reminder to sit still and Manis' beautiful singing brings you right back to your core. I booked the breakthrough session with Sharron Hopley and it was the best thing I've done. I personally don't think they advertise it enough because of the profound benefits it has. It was a significant turning point, she was spot on with her reading and the reiki session gave me what I needed to move on to the next chapter. I stayed one month in Bali and this week at Spa Village Tembok was by far the best. Whilst ubud is lovely, it's very busy and I found Tembok being less touristic and more agricultural indonesian whilst being on the coast a real blessing. I can highly recommend this place and its lovely spa village family to anyone who is looking for tranquility, fun, good food and maybe themselves :). I am definitely going back.
