When I prepared my trip to Bali and saw the first images of the stunning views you have from this hotel I definitely wanted to include it in my program. I even was prepared to go of my planned routing and pay twice as much I usually do for hotels during my trips. The panoramic view of the crater lake and Mt Batur that you have from your balcony is breathtaking and is definitely worth it. Nearby the hotel there is not much to do but they have a good restaurant and you can use this hotel as a base to discover the area by car or bicycle they offer for rent, climb Mt Batur or take a boat ride to Trunyan village.
I decided to take a more expensive Deluxe room because they offer the best view on the mountain and lake. The room itself was clean and nicely decorated and the good beds and quiet environment offer the best circumstances for a good sleep. The rooms are designed in a way that you can have a spectacular view from all the places in the room even from the bathroom because it has wooden windows to the sleeping room you can open but because of this construction it offers not much privacy. Better put your ear plugs in if somebody uses the toilet. :)
The staff was helpful and flexible and generously offered us to use their laptop so that we could have internet access in the lobby. In the past this hotel seemed to have a lesser reputation but the current management does everything they can to improve the quality of the services and that doesn’t go unnoticed.
Because of the unique character our stay in this hotel was one of the highlights of our Java / Bali trip and I definitely can recommend it to persons who don’t mind to pay a bit extra for this special experience.
