The staff are all that embodies the island - warm, helpful and always polite. From check-in assistance to bookings for spa /tour and the gardener, you can be sure of a smile and greeting from them (but do look approachable first). More importantly - the rooms are spacious, clean and made up every day while you are enjoying breakfast - a service that surpass even some 5-star properties that I have lived in. I was in a superior room that came with 2 large beds and the breakfast was ample - bread, cereal, juice, bacon, ham, sausages, eggs, pancake and some local delicacies like fried rice and noodles, sweets and fruit. However it would be terrific if they could add a bit of variety to it. There is complimentary transport to surrounding areas which was useful for us to go to places a bit far off for dinner. The driver recommended us a place for spare ribs and it was the best tasting piece of meat I have tried in my 6 visits to Bali.
The massage - this is definitely worth mention. We went to top rated spa places that we saw on Tripadvisor but none was better than the balinese massage here. The masseur Mr. Made was fantastic! Even better than my experiences at Pangkor Laut Resort in terms of expertise. Just to make sure, I asked my sister to try and she agreed with me.
The next important point is that the location is great being in the centre of monkey forest road - that means you can go just about anywhere without walking too far, a plus point for my family as most of us are nearly at the senior age bracket. After this lovely experience, we tried a new place nearer to the airport for a night and we were utterly disappointed and wished we had stayed back until departure.
Best regards to Nyoman and his team - keep up the good service!
