Stayed for 3 nights early September and had a great stay.
The hotel really is beautiful as you walk off of busy Monkey Forest Road and into the family’s Balinese compound complete with temple before you reach the guest accommodation.
Our room was 101 which was at the bottom of the stairs and right by the pool. During quiet times (which to be honest was each day we were there) it was like having a private pool and was great to be able to walk out of the room and straight into the amazingly clean infinity pool with jungle views.
Whilst I enjoyed the position of this pool its location and decoration did mean that it was very dark inside – at night there was only one very dim bedside light. Bathroom was fine… a little dingy but ok.
Coming back to the pool after a hot day doing stuff was absolute heaven.
My main issue was breakfast which I found to be PAINFULLY slow. They ask you to select what you want the night before…so you would think that they would be prepared, but they aren’t.
On the first morning we had arranged an 8.25am pick-up for a bike tour. We went for breakfast at 7.50am and having ordered the night before would have expected the kitchen to be ready – however by 8.25am all we had had was some fruit and tea. We had to leave hungry…and the staff never apologised.
The following morning we had another early pick up so just ordered some croissants to be brought to our room and the last morning we did manage to have a full breakfast but service was so SLOW. Each night I had ticked Coffee with MILK…. Not once did I get any milk without having to ask about 3 times (why have the option to tick MILK if they just ignore it!)
Apart from breakfast grumbles and the dark room I would happily stay again.
