It's a hard one, this one. Because the hotel is not yet officially opened, meaning that they were still conducting works while i stayed there last week. And the thing is in Indonesia, you see, that they work day and night!! I had to call reception one night at midnight to request for the works that were being carried out right outside my door to be stopped as i needed to get some sleep. They stopped right away which was immensely appreciated my end, of course.
The staff is absolutely AMAZING. They are always trying to anticipate what you may need and are extremely friendly and nice! They almost all called me by my name which is kind of nice :)
The hotel is brand new so everything single thing is brand new, shiny and clean. I stayed in a superior room, it had everything I needed (including a safe and a balcony (especially because I am a smoker)), except may be for a fridge... I personally missed a touch of balinese style in my room. The decoration is fine, just a bit clinical to my taste (probably because of the tiles on the floor?). it's just that my room could have been anywhere in the world, there was nothing that signalled it was actually in Indonesia.
You also need to be aware that it's a great location because it's right in the heart of Seminyak which also means that it's where the main bars are. Which means that it's very loud in the evening... you can definitely sing along to whatever the tracks are being played in the bars next door from your bed... all in all, it was too loud to my taste (considering both works in the hotel and the surrounding bars). but if you're a party animal, you will love it! may be if you're staying in the other building (building A I think, the one that is not on the main street), it's a bit quieter?? I have to say that I am sound sensitive so I might be a bit too picky on this? I don't know.
Amazing staff, brand new accommodations, great location, I booked while they were having promotions so it was a VERY good price, swimming pool is not very big but very cool which is exactly what you need in the ridiculously hot weather of Bali! (The showers and toilets near the pool weren't ready yet)
