We stayed in the honeymoon suite for three nights. Considering we were paying over $300 per night, we expect good things but it simply wasn't worth the money. The staff are lovely and the resort is beautiful. The location is out of town but the shuttle is great.
However, the room smelled terribly of mildew. It was spotless as was the lovely outdoor bathroom but the smell was very strong. The door handle fell off our bathroom door while we were there and even though we reported it, when we came back that evening the door was wide open and the handle had just been stuck back in place to fall off again.
The restaurant was ok but not exceptional. Having to order the day ahead is understandable but annoying. The chocolate dessert of the day was of course not available which I was sure would be the case. My three meals were drowned by the overuse of salad dressing. Breakfast was only average-definitely not at $300 a night standard. Packaged margarine (yuck!) and jams are really a bad thing. Ubud has at least two shops making and selling conserves so why not highlight these? Toast was thinly sliced and crispy and the juice was so watered down that it was more like cordial. These are nitpicking points I know but they shouldn't happen when you pay for this category of hotel. Having come from the absolutely perfect in every way but far cheaper The Damai in Lovina, it was hard not to be disappointed.
This is not a bad place by any means and the number of five star ratings reflects this but I can only assume that all of these people got a much better rate than we did. It was not worth $300++ a night and should lift its game if it wants to charge that. My rating is based on comparing this resort to others in Bali we have stayed in. It is lovely and the staff are very nice and attentive but it is only average in this price range and does need to sort out the room smell and breakfast. It is a very tough review to write as I think as a resort it's lovely but I cannot rate it higher than average when I compare to other places I have stayed that have been of a similar class. I hope the owners take note of my review and see it as positive critisism and not just whining.
