The Medana Resort is a lovely, if somewhat isolated hotel. It’s perfect for couples wanting peace, quite, beautiful surroundings, and attention to detail. The cottages are huge and beautifully decorated. Unfortunately, the air conditioner doesn’t do a very good job of cooling down the large rooms, but they provide fans which help a lot. The staff go above and beyond on all services and they are warm, friendly and make you feel like family, as do the owners who live on the resort grounds and who take time to interact with guests without being intrusive. The restaurant menu is a little limited and sometimes items were unavailable. However, the quality of the food was good. I especially liked the pasta dishes. One of the best things about Medana is it is only a 10 minute taxi ride to the port where you can catch a ferry to the Gillie Islands, so it’s perfect it you want to snorkel or dive these islands but don’t want to reside on them due to their lack of upscale accommodations. Warning: your taxi won’t be able to take you all the way to the port and will drop you off at a lot about a 5 minute walk to the ferry office which is right on the water. DON’T pay for a horse and buggy ride, it’s a short walk and don’t let anyone convince you to buy your ferry tickets from them or tell you that you need to charter a boat, you don’t, go to the ferry terminal at the very end of the road. So all in all, the Medana Resort is a little slice of paradise for those looking for peace and access to the Gillies.

Each bungalow has a bedroom, sitting room, large bathroom (with sunken bath indoor and outdoor showers) and a large balcony with a view of the sea, featuring Bali's Agung volcano as a sunset backdrop. ... more less
