i stayed here for two nights in the ginger suite, and wished i could have stayed a bit longer. i had originally booked through expedia and they only had a garden room or a veranda room available. i took the veranda and there was no turning back. the room was amazingly perched above a lovely private pool and i had views of the rice field next door. there are lots of mosquitos so bring repellant and a box of your own coils - they do provide a couple, but you'd want a few burning at once if you want to relax on the veranda. the large window doors were perfect and i though it would be nice to wake up with the sun, however at 6am i went to the windows and closed the curtains, the room gets a lot of light on all sides and it was a little overkill at 6am. the bed was a bit hard and the pillows a bit hard. i had some yellow stains on my sheets and pretended they were not there. so gross. this room provided a coffee maker, refridge and tv with one channel - the asian food network!! you can borrow dvds at the desk to watch instead but i was catching up on cuisine.
the bathroom is another story. it is very very dated, dark and mildewy. the bathtub was very big and is made for three i think but i could never get enough hot water to fill it and had to take rather cold baths. there isn't a shower curtain so the walls have mildew. there are also open holes through the walls like little windows but they let in bugs and the neighbors can get a glimpse of your naked bum. the bathroom isn't open door and should be or at least have more light.
the towels though, smelt really good. i don't know what detergent they were using but it smelt gooood. i have allergies to mold and mildew and i really had some bad attacks in this room but that's my fault for not bringing any medicine.
i would stay here again, and bring safety pins to close the mosquito netting around the bed since it was too small and left big gaps here and there. .
the spa was nice, not amazing, but nice - cheaper than the other places.
the grounds are very romantic, lots of lilly pads, rivers, vines, trellises, privacy!
the manger gave a nice tip for a great view restaurant : Indus
they have a live salsa band on monday nights and lots of dancing along with a great 4 star dinner. you can see the rice fields from the top of the mountain.
breakfast was ok, i would order the nasi 'fried rice' and shy away from the eggs since they are a bit undercooked. the staff didn't know what a wine bucket was either and i saw a cat lying on the kitchen counter one night - a little dirty if you've seen the cats around there.
** this room can catch the free wifi from the front desk, so that's a plus because some other rooms around can't receive a signal.
