Before I stayed at this hotel I had read some of the other reviews and I was a little worried about staying here. I had been to Bali before and had stayed at one of the large, fancy, beach front hotels in Nusa Dua and I knew that this hotel would not be as impressive as the first hotel. That being said, I think that this hotel is a great alternative and offers a different experience.
This hotel is outside of the Nusa Dua gates and is in the little town just outside the gates. This provides those who stay here the opportunity to actually walk around the town and really see how people live in Bali. It is much more authentic than the sterile atmosphere of the large resorts. If you leave the hotel grounds and turn right, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars very close to the hotel. If you turn left, you walk through the town until you get to another street with restaurants, shops, and massage parlours. Inside the Nusa Dua gates there is the Bali Hai shopping/restaurant complex (which you could easily walk to), but the places there are much more expensive and westernized...
Rooms at the hotel were fine---they were not too small! Besides, how much time are you spending in a room when you are in Bali? I thought that the food at the hotel was good, expecially dinner (which we ate there several times). Pool was nice, also. We would have liked a hot tub, but that would be our only extra request.
This hotel is not on the beach so the hotel provides a shuttle (or you could walk--20 minutes or so) and provides chairs and towels on the beach.
So, yes, this hotel is not a big, fancy resort, but it is a great choice for people and families who don't want to spend hundreds of dollars a night! I would stay there again!
