Let me start by saying my husband and I have been to Bali many many times (and I have a sister who lives in Semanyak). But this experience was somewhat disappointing. Decking around the pool was dodgy to say the least - a bit of a paint or oil job is overdue. No grass at all in the single room villas so we were surrounded by old wood decking. You need to do the high jump to get into the shower - which is in the bathtub for gods sake - didn't they outlaw those types of showers many years ago? And the outdoor sun lounges were softer than the mattress on the bed - and that's saying something!!
Location is certainly not central Semanyak - apart from Bali Deli across the road it is like a rural location. 20 minutes walk to anywhere central and a 10 min taxi ride to beach or KuDeTa etc. Luckily my sister recommended a few nice restaurants (after a crappy meal at the Villas Prana Restaurant) and I would highly recommend Sardine, Sip and Gado Gado (at night).
Only thumbs up would go to the staff - lovely people and always willing to help.
So that was the last trip to Bali for us. Sad note to go out on - we were hoping for so much more at US$320++ a night - also a rip off.
