What strikes you first as you enter this collection of antique javanese houses is the walkway to the architecturally stunning reception. Cool stone floors mixed with bamboo and tasteful interiors. Upstairs is the treatment floor for massages etc. All the houses are different so choose your preference.
Spent 3 nights here in the The Padi House - a very serene, special atmosphere. Large with private deck and outside seating, spacious with huge floor mirror and most comfortable four poster bed with soft pillows and linen. Fell in love with the partly outdoor bathroom, taking hot showers at night to the chorus of what sounded like hundreds of frogs around the pond. Which you can swim in or leap into from a rope swing (or as I did, perch on the wooden walkway bridge and watch my friends).
Breakfast was simple but a delight with coffee/tea, the most delicious fresh fruit and choice of eggs or balinese rice porridge - all served in beautiful celadon pottery. They also do a very civilised complimentary afternoon tea & cake every day.
The manager - I wish I could remember her name - and all her staff couldn't have been more pleasant or accommodating, you felt more like a friend staying. This is a small, bijou gem of a hotel where you should just soak in the atmosphere, so go elsewhere if you want an upscale resort with a dozen facilities on tap.
