Yes,its bungalows are ina lovely quiet tropical forest an are cool and shadowy.For those ina standard room at least,after a couple of days these rooms become claustrophobic and oppressive.One could scarcely read at night in bed.The bathroom stank like a public urinal.Our room was cleaned when they felt like it ie four out of seven days.Breakfast is OK.Do not eat dinner there,our nasi campur was the worst meal we have had anywherein the world.
His big feast is a bit of a con...the touted 13 or 14 "courses" include as courses intheir own right a dollop of white rice,a prawn cracker,some pieces of orange...you get the idea.Poor value at 135000R.
Ketut himself is a very smart entrepreneur,enough said for the moment on that.He will be on at you to go to his feast,his kecak dance,use his overpriced "taxi service' etc.The walk to the centre is 10 to 15 minutes on dangerous often blocked pavement,unlit,and involves confronting numerous yappy scabrous dogs...someone died of rabies in adjoining Tabanan when we were there.Our bill was much higher than expected because he charged for another day when we naively thought he was kindly offering to let us leave our bags there for seven hours after checkout .On top of that he hit us up 3 percent on everything for using a credit card and converted his $US figure into rupiahs at a rate far more favourable to him than any money changer would givehim.
Finally,hot water was missing in the morning and the bamboo bed frames were so rotten they were in danger of imminent collapse.
I left feeling I hadd been done over like a dinner.Lonely Planet must be out of their mind.
