Reviewed 26 February 2013

This place was incredible: green, lush, exotic flowers, birds, butterflies, frogs, traditional Balinese Villas, comfortable bed, clean, very nice and helpful staff.

We stayed in the Villa Bija and had a beautiful private pool. Perfect for lounging in the water with a book and glass of wine or beer.

Noteworthy:
-There is free afternoon tea and fruit from 4pm-6pm(?). They will bring it to your room if you call room service.
-There was NOT hot water.. it was cool. We figured locals probably don't typically have hot water either.. for us it made the stay more authentic. We chose to not make a fuss. Showering during the daytime when it was warm out wasn't bad at all.
-There was only one outlet in the entire Villa so bring a power strip. There was an adapter in the room.
-There are mosquitos so if you're prone to be eaten alive, wear the lotion/spray while you're there. The room had a can of spray that was for use in the air, not on your skin. The rooms also had mosquito coils to burn if you like.
-The resort seemed to be difficult to find for taxis so grab a business card from reception and keep it on you.
-They offer free flowers in the room upon request. There was a bouquet of roses on the bed with petals in a heart shape and more petals all throughout the bathtub.
-At night was noisy sometimes with the frogs croaking and (what sounded like) monkeys making a ruckus in the trees. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

All in all this place blew our mind. Neither of us wanted to leave.

Room Tip: Definitely pay the extra for a private pool!

We recently stayed at Kamaya, and de-stressed the minute we arrived.
We stayed in a Lanai with pool, the most exotic outdoor bathroom, the lovely balinese style bed with pristine white mosquito nets all around.
Tranquility, peace and quiet, which was exactly what overworked hubby needed. Bagus and the staff were soooo friendly, helpful and accomodating that we did'nt want to leave.
Had a very relaxing Balinese massage (complimentary) and were taken to town several times by shuttle, also complimentary.
Cannot recommend this resort highly enough, just 5 minutes from the heart of Sanur, but within the walls of this lovely resort, you feel many miles away from day to day hustle and bustle. Excellent!!! Thank you.

Room Tip: The Lanai with pool is the best option for couples, a lovely escape from the heat, and the outdoor b...

We reached there in low season, Jan 2013. The hotel is clean. I feel that it needs a little bit more of maintenance. Linens and towers are clean. We have no problem with it. There is only one power outlet inside my room (it’s a lanai with pool). Thus, I had to arrange timing to charge my gadgets such as phones and cameras.

It’s a wonderful garden hotel. I fallen in love with Balinese architectural style and it arrangements. During my stayed, having breakfast beside my private swimming pools made me forget my busy, hustle and bustle life.

The spa in the hotel looks nice and clean. I just miss out my chance to try spa as my arrangement are too rush.

It would be better if I can get more lighting in my room. Even I switch on all lights; I found out that it’s still dark. Introducing adjustable lightings could be a solution.

It’s rainy season in Bali. Mosquitoes are everywhere on the island. It may be ok of locals but we can’t stand for it. It’s so painful though. We don’t like insecticide smell in our air-conditioned bedroom. The hotel should find better solution to tackle mosquito problem for rainy season.

It is 30 minutes drive from busy and crowded Denpasar city which is good. It has an arrangement for free shuttle bus service to Sanur beach. Sanur beach is not as busy as Kuta beach but it has own charm. It is more family friendly beach compare to Kuta. The restaurants at Sanur are so good though.

For all in all, I feel so happy of staying there. Staffs are friendly. It worth what I paid. I already recommended my close friend on this hotel.

We stayed here for 17 nights. The resort is very quiet, The staff are most attentive and just so friendly. Having breakfast by your own pool is great and we found the stay to be most relaxing. There is a free shuttle into town which is about 4klm away. Taxi ride is about $2AUD as an alternative. Beach is a fair walk. Once you have stayed a night or two the whole surrounds just grows on you. In the end we did not want to leave, it was simply bliss !!

We loved this small boutique resort
Just the right amount of excellent service and always delivered with a smile
The spa is very good and worth the money
It's obviously more expensive than Sanur but for the quality and tranquility it is worth it
The optional beach club isn't up to Scratch and you'll find better down the beach
Traffic jams and litter (mainly plastic) were the only things that spoilt the visit a bit
Be prepared to pay arrival tax of 25 USD per person on your way in and 150,000 IDR PP on your way out
The Bali Government is having a laugh at the tourists expense!

Room Tip: Villa Maja is a twin Villa with pool and private courtyard - lovely

My partner and I stayed here for 14 nights. The staff were all incredible! We booked a deluxe pool villa, we were given one because the other was taken, but when it was available we then got the choice of which one we wanted. Quite area, can be hard to find (even some of the local taxis had trouble). But once you've stayed there a few days you remember quite easily and end up directing them where to go! The hotel receptionist was amazing, we had chosen what activites we wanted to do, she rang and booked everything for us. The rooms were always spotless and very private. Private pools aren't big enough to do proper swimming, but big enought to relax and have fun. The hotel restaurant does very yummy food including more western style food. The hotel has their own driver to take you to the main street of Sanur. and to get a taxi back it only costs AUD$2.50-$3.00. Massage room was relaxing and peaceful. Didnt try the spa or fitness centre.

Room Tip: Pool villa on the Northeast behind the main pool is the biggest.

The rooms were beautiful, loved the outdoor shower and bath. The service was fantastic and the staff were incredibly attentive. The location was secluded, private and quiet; just perfect for a honeymoon
