We have just completed a four night stay in one of the family pool villas with our 3 children and were very happy with the experience. Staying over Xmas we were pleasantly surprised by receiving 2 baskets of baked Xmas goodies delivered to our room. The resort offered a special 10 course+ choice of Indonesian or Balinese Christmas menu at Kafe Arma which was delicious and tremendous value at 250000 IR per couple. The price made it feel like a gift from the resort and chef who personally oversaw it being served at our table.
The staff was attentive with a generous breakfast served in one of the two bali huts in the villa and the room cleaned daily. The outdoor bathroom in each room exceeded expectations with a large stone bath, outdoor shower indoor shower, fresh flowers, dressing table and then an indoor basin/ walk-in robe area.
There were a number of other little surprises I wont reveal. The shuttle arrangement was flexible and very comfortable.
The only negative point would be that these villas would not suit families with small children as there is no interconnection between the two rooms and you have to walk around the (beautiful) swimming pool to get into the other room which is not so easy at night or in the rain.
The five of us did a gamelen orchestra workshop which was enjoyable and my husband and children did a woodcarving workshop and produced some decent results in just 2 hours. I was sad that the length of our stay prevented us doing the cooking class and market tour. The free archeological tour exceeded expectations. We were stranded in torrential rain down a deep valley in one of the temples and our driver Made walked down in up to knee deep water to deliver us umbrellas.
The art gallery was excellent. We felt like we were staying in the grounds of a royal palace. The tarrif was expensive but felt like reasonable value for the unique experience that we had and I would recommend this as a good alternative to the usual 5 star hotel experience.
