Just enjoyed three superb nights in this remarkable and wonderful hotel-resort. Quite breathtaking scenery surrounds this very subtle complex of architecturally interesting buildings which are very sophisticated but also sensitive to the local cultural style.
It is worth lingering in the restaurant where the food was inventive and uses super ingredients, well put together. We ate a la carte two nights and the food was excellent. The service in the main restaurant, like the hotel as a whole, is noticeably very friendly, attentive and genuinely caring. The staff clearly have a real pride in this hotel and seem to enjoy working here and enjoy making their guests happy.
Rooms are very simple, but thoughtfully desgined and decorated. Mattresses are very firm but I slept wonderfully.
The spa is *outstanding* and not to be missed. At the bottom of the estate and nestling above a white-water gorge and overlooking a tranquil infinity pool - one of two in the grounds - the spa treatment cabins have beautiful baths set against an open view of the gorge. Wonderful: do have the flower milk bath in your treatment package. You'll be so pleased you did. This is genuinely one of the world's great spa settings, but the treatments are also very good.
The high-up bar area is simple but impressive and redolent of both colonial grandeur and very sympathetic to the lovely view in front of you (accentuated by subtle and rather lovely lighting in the grounds). Cocktails and alcohol is pricey but a half-price 'happy hour' from 6pm-8pm was very welcome. The wine list, however, is well-judged and fairly-priced (as an expat living in Jakarta I can attest to the 400% import tax on liquor).
I would whole-heartedly recommend this hotel to anyone and pln to come myself again next month for a long-weekend to celebrate my birthday
