It was our first trip to Bali and my mother booked the room for myself & my girlfriend.
The first thing I noticed in the room was the smell of mould, you do get used to it, but at first its very strong.
The size of the room is quite big for what you're paying for. We were room 103.
They offer a free breakfast, but its very small and after a few days of it you might as well go and get breakfast elsewhere.
We loved the pool, it's not big, but its peaceful and you often find you're the only ones in or around it. You can sit on a bar stool in the pool and use your phone/laptop/iPad and they even have power points near by.
The wifi however is SHOCKING. I had to send some photos to clients while there and it took more than an hour to send 4 photos of around 5mb, I ended up heading to a bar with wifi.
The service was great most of the time, however we were told the day before checkout that we had a phone call which was weird as no one knew we were staying there. It was from someone at a hotel saying that we "won a 7 night stay at their new hotel" a car would pick us up and we can pick up our prize at their grand opening. It turns out to be a scam and its a hotel trying to sell you a time-share. Someone at Fat Yogi is giving away your details, inc. passport details to this time-share, they only way they would have got our details is through our booking. It also happened to 1 other person there when he & his wife stayed there together last year.
The resort is located in a very busy area, but that means lots of places to eat & drink. Secret Garden is a great bar across the road. Because of its location you'll find most taxis do not want to come to the resort, so pay the extra for the driver.
I would stay there again, I've pointed out a few cons, but there are a lot of pro's which have already been pointed out. For $29 to $39 a night you will enjoy it and you're in Bali, so you're only in your rooms for a bit anyway.
