My wife and I had a wonderful experience during our four days at Sudamala Suites and Villas. As you leave the front desk and enter the hotel grounds, you are entering another world. The hotel is beautiful and well kept, with lovely landscaping throughout. We particularly liked the artwork found throughout the grounds. The rooms were relatively large and clean, with sufficient storage space. Since we had a deluxe balcony suite, our bathroom was completely enclosed, so we did not encounter problems with mosquitoes and other insects we found occasionally in open-air bathrooms in Indonesia.
The breakfasts were tasty and plentiful with an assortment of western and Balinese choices. The traditional music played by live musicians during breakfast was a nice touch. Similarly, the turn-down service where a small wicker basket was left in the room containing some chocolate, tomorrow’s events, and a short story was appreciated.
The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. Most of them spoke English so there was little difficulty in communicating with them.
The only negative I had with Sudamala centered around their “private beach.” Advertised as a private beach or a beach club, this was a great disappointment. Their patch of sand (and I am not exaggerating) is a relatively short walk from the hotel, but is quite difficult to find. We met several other guests who never did find the private beach. We persisted, found it, and wished we didn’t. It was about 10-15 meters wide, looked abandoned, and didn’t have any staff to provide towels or any other assistance. I must admit, Sudamala staff handled my complaint professionally and the next day drove us around to other local beaches that, for a small charge, provided us with lounge chairs and umbrellas.
In spite of the one limitation regarding the beach, Sudamala Suites and Villas is a lovely place to spend a few days and is highly recommended.
