“Simply Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2010

Me and my beloved wife stayed here for our Honeymoon in May.

We booked to stay for a week ( 4 nights in Gending Kedis in
Jimbaran & 3 nights at its sister resort Kanishka villa in Seminyak ).

What can be said, I hope the title of my post conveys it all. As we
arrived at Ngurah Rai, we were greeted by the hotels driver and
whisked away with refreshments and cold towels to dab ourselves
and relax. Driving through Bali's colorful streets where you marvel
at both the balinese architecture which is intricate in detail ( especially
with regards to the temples ) is just mesmerizing. Whilst gazing at
the structures and winding through narrow roads, we slowly ride up
the hill and reach Gending Kedis. The marvelous open air lobby is
just exhilirating. We were greeted by the attending manager, Herma,
who is absolutely sweet and helpful in the extreme. Our every need
was seen to quickly, and our villa was breathtaking. Suspended in the
rainforest with the wildlife just going about its own way in the
background brought about a sense of both disconnect from everyday
hectic life to connection with nature. The room service was superb.

The amenities top class and the ambience priceless. Special mention
to the owner, the effervescent Mr. Douglas Wallace, we met him
around our second evening and he was a joy to chat with, he knows
all his guests by name and takes the time to listen to their stories
and queries, and by how the place is run and presented, I'm certain
he only hears positive feedback from happy residents, because thats
how we were treated, as home owners in our villa, not some customer
who is simply coming from a short stay, be that as it may.

Then we were off on our fourth day to Kanishka villa, we didnt fret as
we knew that it would most likely be of the same 5 star standard and
it was. We will be coming back one day surely and hope to enjoy
the wonderous hospitality of Gending Kedis and swap stories with
Mr. Wallace.

Thank you Gending Kedis family for making our Honeymoon truly
memorable.

We wanted to go some place really special for our honeymoon. After months of surfing the net and reading hundreds of reviews on trip advisor we finally made a booking at GK. I exchanged dozens of mails with the hotel staff and each time their replies were propmpt and so polite. Big thank you to Ayu, Diana and Novi Indriani who corresponded with me at different points of time and answered all of my endless queries and accomodated all of my requests. We booked the honeymoon package for 3 nights and booked a 1 bed room villa.
We spent the 1st night in Kuta and GK arranged for us to be picked up from there instead of the airport, which was very accomodating. When we arrived at the resort we were told that we were upgraded to a 4 bedroom viila - kokokan! And the villa was so AMAZING!! I truly cannot explain it in words. All i can say is that it was the most beautiful place Ive ever stayed in and the environment is so serene, just like heaven is suppose to be!

And the staff there is exceptionally friendly and always at your service if you need anything. The hotel was at full occupancy at the time but they didn't take more than 10 minutes to respond to any request you made over the phone from the room.
Our butler Bayu was very polite and friendly and so was Sunedhi who was responsible for shuttling us around. Big thumbs up for both! I must say that Balinese people are some of the most nicest and humble people I've ever come across. Absolutely fell in love with Bali and also the people.

Spa treatments were part of our package and gosh!!! it was amaaazing! :) and I mean it when i say AMAZING!!!! The private plunge pool at the villa is also amazing! The candle-lit dinner by the pool in our villa was also romantic! The food at GK overall was yummacious!!

If you're staying in Jimbaran you MUST try the seafood at Jimbaran Bay beach. The prices are by weight and it's so reasonable and above all the food is just out of this world! Try MENEGA CAFE. Go early if you want to get a seat, cz it's the most popular one out of the dozens of cafes you get on the beach!
If you are interested in shopping well the best areas to visit are Kuta and Seminayak. Kuta is cheaper while Seminyak is the more chic up market district. If you love paintings and handicrafts then you will love Ubud arts village. Don't forget to visit the Ubud market which has hundreds of street shops and houses amaaazing handicrafts, silks, batiks, etc etc for such cheap prices! Don't forget to bargain! Silks however are some what expensive.
If you have any questions at all you can always ask me at tamali_silva@hotmail.com.
Don't have any doubt whatsoever in selecting GK as your next vacation destination!!! You will LOVE IT!!! :) I can't wait to go back someday!

A big thank you to all at GK who made our honeymoon such a memorable experience!! :)

The Gending Kedis is a fantastic place for those seeking to get away from it all - we, 2 couples - stayed in the Munai Villa a 2 bedroom with 2 sitting rooms for 3 nights - upper sitting room and dining area (huge) fully airconditioned - sitting room by the pool open in Balinese Style with wet bar. Bedrooms airconditioned. A great sized pool with infinity edge looking into jungle with amazing bird life, flora and yes - squirrels - or at least Bali's version thereof!
Luxurious in all respects - great staff - helpful in every way with smiles that make your day. Restaurant is a hidden gem with very refined, quality food that is great value for a place of this quality. The new gym provides every piece of equipment that a gym junkie could want.
Spa was top class!

No mosquitos - staff work hard at eradicating them.

My 5th time to bali, but 1st time staying @ Jimbaran. My hubby had booked A 3night stay to celebrate my Bday. The 2storey villa is very luxury with full kitchen facilities, balcony, modern setting living rm with comlimentary in-house movie for rent, pool with greenary view ( saw some cows grazing with i was sun bathing), an amazing huge bathroom & tub. We had lots of privacy which we love it! There was also a turndown service (to wand off mosquitoes) and minicakes every evening.

Herma had meticulous recommended "things to do", helped us place reservation for dinner @ the PJs FourSeas the evening we check-in which was highly Recommended and also booked our tour to Uluwatu.

Daily B/F was excellent with a great selection to choose from. The G.M Douglas & Herma also surprised me with a Bday cake and song. The butler & villa staffs were very helpful n courteous. We had the complimentary shuttle down to the "rock bar" @ Ayana hotel and Jimbaran Beach during our stay.

We will definitely recommend our Frds to stay here!

spent our first 4 days at gending kedis as part of our honeymoon. fantastic place and excellent service. we stayed in a one bed villa which was huge and stunning my only issue was that it didnt really get any sun as its set so close to the hillside- meant the pool had lots of leaves in it and was very chilly as didnt get warmed up by the sun- bit of a shame as we wanted to lounge round our own private area but the main pool was stunning. the restaurant was simply outstanding best place we ate all holiday and very reasonably priced.

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
Thank you very much for your review following your Honeymoon at GENDING KEDIS. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your villa, but sorry that your private pool did not get enough sunshine during the day. We hope that the resort's 22 meter pool made up for it, as usually this pool is steeped in sun all day.
It is great to hear that you liked the Alcedo restaurant and enjoyed dining there. Thanks from all of us for choosing GK Resorts for your honeymoon, and we hope that you will have wonderful memories for many years. Please consider a return visit in the near future!
With warm wishes from Bali... Douglas Wallace

My wife and I first stayed at GK in 2008, when it had just opened. We were so impressed by the accomodation, food and hospitality that we decided to stay here a second time. Again, were not disappointed.

We have been to Bali five times in the past ten years, and stayed in numerous places and hotels. We would rate GK the best value for money, by far. The personalised service offered only in smaller, villa-type resorts such as GK makes this .

Alcedo restaurant makes a great breakfast, and is a hidden gem for lunch and dinner. Prices are really reasonable for a resort.

Only negative would be spa prices. I'm sure it is of high-quality, but charges are on the very high end (5 - 10 times higher) compared to what you can get within 5K of the resort.

For those wanting to relax in peace and quiet, this is the place. If you want the hustle and bustle of Kuta or Seminyak, a taxi ride gets you to Kuta in 15-20 min. Also, GK is close to Nusa Dua - great restaurants!

We're taking our two small children next year and will again come back. WIll probably split our stay between GK and its sister property in Seminyak.

Overall, a fantastic place and we look forward to seeing everyone there early next year!

We spent our honeymoon here and we really satisfied with what we get. The place is very quite and in the morning we could hear birds and once we saw a squirrel stole our bread :p
hahaha...it was so natural.
The spa was nice too, we had 2.5 hours spa in our private villa.

The management provided free airport transfer and to places around Jimbaran. So, although the location is far, but no worries for that. Because they will drop and pick us up any time.
Also, the receptionist helped us to reserve restaurant for dinner in other hotel nearby.

They also provided DVD for rent (free) and ipod deck. The kitchen is furnished with stove, water dispenser, and other kitchen utensil.

Just a tips from our experience: call the room service for breakfast, because the portion is bigger than in their cafe ^^
Can't wait to back there in the end of this year

Dear Tripadvisor Member,
Thank you very much for deciding on GK for your honeymoon. Sorry to read that a squirrel stole your bread! The bird and wildlife surrounding the villas seems to be appreciated by many of our regular guests. Did you know that Gending Kedis means "Birdsong" in bahasa Bali?
It is a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your 2.5 hours spa treatment, and we are pleased to let you know that the MALKOHA spa can be enjoyed in 2 locations within the GK complex, having recently expanded within the main Clubhouse in addition to the rustic Valley Spa.
We look forward to welcoming you again to the Island of the Gods! With warm regards from all of us, Douglas Wallace
