The Dipan is a smaller resort - it offers a more private, personalised stay. Just a short walk to potato head. Kuta's nightlife is only a 15 minute cab ride away, a good distance from all the hustle and bustle ensuring you relax on your holiday also. It's only about a $3AUD cab ride (Blue Bird Cabs) to Kuta when you feel like joining the chaos.
We stayed in a beautiful villa with private pool. It was great value for money! The villa was on the other side of the main resort pool and therefore we had no noise from any surrounding building work or nightclubs. Our villa included a sitting room where we could have friends, a main bedroom with TV/DVD player with a door to the pool and on the other side an ensuit which was enormous with a large standing bath, plus outdoor area with a big frangipani tree. No cheap toiletries, there was proper shampoo/body wash etc.
The restaurant was really good. Breakfast was included and you just order off the menu each day. They were flexible if you wanted something else, or extra. Breakfast included fresh squeeze juice, coffee and fruit. I'll be the first to admit it, I'm a Melbourne coffee snob. These guys make good coffee!!!! Rarely do you travel and find coffee like home. So even if you pop in for a cuppa here it's worth it.
The staff here were wonderful! They had great english, were very friendly and went above and beyond for us. We needed to report an incident from a night out with police and they escorted us, stayed the entire time (which took over an hour), translated, made sure we were ok and never asked for any tip. Our villa was cleaned to the highest standard! Every stone around the pool back in place, and mosquito coils lit for us each night.
Negatives: The main pool has only 4 lounges and a large day bed. However it never seemed too busy, so perhaps most people use their private pools or the bar/pools at places like potato head. Also the main pool has a stunning rainforest style design, which unfortunately means limited sun at times. Perhaps a positive if you aren't looking to sun bake all day (sun wasn't shy around the private pool though).
