Our experience at La Taverna was most satisfying. Met at the airport by Ketut right on time. Whisked away with cool face cloths and bottled water, worth the 250,000 Rp at 10pm and desperate for real food, a shower and comfy bed. The restaurant staff, in the process of closing for the night, must have felt sorry for us and happily agreed to feed us. I was impressed and grateful. Our room, 14. I booked Garden Deluxe (call it what you like, i'm motivated by price and facilities) to accommodate 2 adults and 1 child. On the first floor, with a small outdoor sitting area. Bathroom with a shower. Yep, squeaky wooden doors. Day bed (hard as a rock, but she got used to it) set up as the single for our daughter. Love the shabby chic decor. Everything in the room worked as you would expect it to. Except for the inside lock for the main door. There wasn't one. Quite strange, but a brolly across the handles did the trick. Breakfast was fresh, tasty and bountiful. Spent most of our time pool side. Bit of a beach snob me, wasn't keen to wade through the seaweed for an ocean swim. Lunch and dinner options - Indonesian and Italian - tasty and on par with any other hotel for price. Across the road though is a cool Warung called Little Bird - well priced with an impressive menu. La Taverna staff were friendly, happy to engage with you for a conversation, but still attentive to their duties. Our experience of travelling with a child in Indonesia is like travelling with a rock star, the parents the entourage. Our daughter responded in kind when greeted by name every morning. Experiences like that, make a holiday memorable. We enjoyed our stay here so much we rebooked for the tail end of our trip. This time room 32, more spacious, on the ground floor, larger outdoor sitting area. Shower over sunken bathroom. Very cool hotel, relaxed atmosphere, not your typical conveyor belt luxury at all, elegant without the attitude. Both our stays were weekday so we did not experience the 'invasion' - quite the opposite. Lovely tranquil time. We used a blue taxi back to the airport, about 50,000 Rp as i recall.
