Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with wife and 3 year old daughter.
Room: we had room 202, which was called a hill villa I think. The villa had ample space and a lovely bathroom. We had a great pool with the villa; only comment is that it was 180cm deep which meant we had to keep a very keen eye on little one. The garden has a water feather which is c. 6 feet in diameter and 1 foot deep. We used this as an Ad hoc kids pool.
Service: was great. A small hotel with just 19 villas so all the staff knew your name after first day. Was a bit of a mix up at the airport on arrival., which everyone, including manager, knew ASAP. They were very apologetic and sought to make up for it. We'll managed.
Breakfast: one of our favourite things about the hotel. Saw one comment complaining that there was a lack of buffet. For me, I much prefer the "make fresh to order approach" here. Lots of options and can eat as much as you want. (We pretty much missed lunch on 2 days as enjoyed breakie so much).
Had dinner in the hotel on one evening. Food was great. Loads of options for the little ones as we'll.
Shuttle car: used a number of times and mostly worked very well.
Baby sitter: very good. Always reassuring when the baby sitter speaks very good English.
Overall: really enjoyed it. Took the first day to unwind and get used to slower pace vs hk. Staff are great. The hotel lacks some of the things you might find in a mega hotel (does not have six bars and restaurants) but that's not why you would come here. If you are looking for a hotel that is very relaxed, just 15 mins from ubud and a bit more personal than large international brands, this is a good option.
