I previously stayed at the Lily room in Alam Indah, which is probably the more glamorous sister of Kebun Indah, but for the price that paid for the Sandat room and the lovely views I got, I felt it was worth the money.
Sandat is the farthest room from the hotel and the closest to the pool. The pool isn't as lovely as the one in Alam Indah, so I only swam in it once.
Kebun Indah is on a nice little strip close to the ARMA Museum but the hotel is far away from the noise from the street. At night time, all I heard was the sounds of the insects chirping, the waters of the river rushing down and one night, the sounds of gamelan music from the nearby temple. The staff were amazing, when my friend and I were intrigued by the music and we asked the friendly staff where it was coming from, they gave us directions to get to the temple. Note: when you're visiting the temples, please bring a sarong and long sleeved shirt. Needless to say, that was one of the highlights of our trip.
I'd say the staff at Kebun Indah were warmer and personable. They really care about your safety too. It was nearly midnight when I came back to the hotel and security was waiting for me outside my verandah to ensure I was still alive.
Breakfast and tea was great, especially when dining in the privacy of your own verandah. Ahh, bliss. I especially liked the chocolate and ginger cake they served during tea time. I think it's only served in the Alam hotels because when I went to Cafe Wayan (owned by the same family), they didn't have it there.
Only complaint I have was the room was quite hot during the night. But that was fixed when I opened the windows and used the mosquito net. The bathroom was very nice and clean too.
Can't wait to come back to Kebun Indah!
