The three words are "heaven on earth." If you don't have time to read 3 words, I’ll shorten it to just one: "heaven" (as in on earth or anyplace else, for that matter!) Spent six nights there this past week (departing May 16th), at a pool/spa villa, on our honeymoon. Staff were not simply excellent, they were charming, friendly, and gave insights into the local culture. If you can get a pool villa with a spa room, do. You won't be disappointed. Calm, serene, beautiful, truly relaxing. Our assigned butler, Rusdi, is someone we miss already - not simply because he was wonderfully helpful and creative, but because he was such a nice person as well. He surprised us with his remarkable and very unusual skill at creating lovely shapes out of towels which he left on our bed, but I won't spoil his surprises by telling you what they all were (although I've posted one photo, to give just a small idea of what he can do!) The staff at the dining area were superbly helpful, the food delicious, and the musicians who played gently during meals were also a treat. And, speaking of treats, once you've spent time at the Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, do expect to find that everywhere else that you go will be a bit of a letdown! I hate to sound like a typical husband, but, believe me, if I ever get in hot water with my wife, my plan is to ask her a very simple question to help get things back on track: "I took you to the Chedi Club, didn't I?" We will never forget the truly soul-enriching time we spent there. When we left, we didn’t say “goodbye”, we said “sampai jumpah”, which means that we’ll see you again – which, hopefully, we will! And the sooner, the better! Our special thanks also to our skilled and helpful driver, Fit, who toured with us to a holy spring temple, a volcano, wonderful rice terraces, a coffee plantation, and then also knew where to stop to buy fantastic gifts at non-tourist prices!
