“Lovely but.....”

This place was magical. The buildings, far from the beaten track, were smooth, organic forms of painted plaster, beautiful, polished wood and natural fibres. The lounge area and kitchen sit in the open and share the surrounding lush greenery with all manner of exotic fauna. If you're looking for an opportunity to immerse yourself in the environment and be surrounded by Balinese wildlife then this is the place for you.
Unfortunately we got to spend only one night as my young children were terrified; none of us really slept, their nightmares disturbing an otherwise tranquil night.
Their bedrooms were in a separate building, with access to our room up a small set of steps. Okay, so it wasn't far but when you're 9 years old a trip to the bathroom in your own home can be full of dragons and demons in the shadows but here, with the frogs, ants, spiders and moths it was just too much. The walls and ceilings were home to all manner of bugs, two harmless but huge and scary looking Huntsmen spiders shared the shower. Try telling a 9 and 6 year old from the city that the bugs are harmless, that old line "They're more scared of you!" just doesn't cut it sometimes.
It was such a shame that we had to leave the next day, for us it would have been idyllic.
The owners were understanding and generous, offering us their driver to move us to our alternative lodgings. I've no doubt our stay would have been beautiful and interesting and I hope that one day, perhaps when the children are older, we have an opportunity to return.
I would recommend this if you're looking for peace and tranquility but only to those I know with a sense of adventure and with children made of stouter stuff than ours.
