I enjoyed our trip here and found the rooms to be good quality, clean etc....comfortable beds.They call themselves 4 star and that's accurate - I did find the prices slightly on the high end for a 4-star establishment but we enjoyed our stay so I wasn't too upset about it.
Only things that annoyed me were the lack of fish options on the menu - the tuna had sold out the twice I asked for it and the restaurant didn't have a fish option either, apart from a tuna burger thing but I just wanted steamed greens and fish.
The spa and pool area is lovely and the Balinese massage was one of the best massages I ever had. The 5 elements massage was in contrast the worst massage that I have ever had, and a complete waste of money - my partner had one too and he also thought it was dreadful.
Also, they didn't have an option on the massage form to leave a tip and as I never carry cash down to hotel spas, I thought this was annoying as I had really wanted to tip the Italian guy who did my Balinese massage - he was just great.
The hotel is in an amazing location and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful - in particular, the manager of the restaurant is just amazing. He couldn't have been more accomodating and attentive if he tried.
The swimming area is lovely too, and if you do stay here you should check out a local restaurant called Sissi - it's a five minute walk away and it was amazing.
One tip for management - it would be better to put couples with babies in a quiter room - we had our baby with us and if I stayed again I would have requested a higher room or one around the back - we were on the first floor above the outdoor restaurant area and my baby kept being disturbed by the noise as we always like to sleep with the windows open. Also there was no kettle in our room and the hotel had run out of kettles which is definitely not ideal when you have a baby who needs warm milk several times a day. I had to go down to the bar five times a day for hot water which was a hassle when she was crying for her milk there and then.
