Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Situated to the north of Seminyak this property is an ideal retreat from the hustle of the streets. It is probably too far away from the shops and restaurants to conveniently walk so hire yourself a motorbike and brave the chaos. We had a suite but with the upstairs/downstairs layout the single level bungalows are probably a better bet. The staff are helpful and accommodating. The air-conditioning in our room played up after 3 or 4 days - there was no hesitation in simply moving us into another room rather than have us put up with the potential inconvenience of work being done in our room. On arrival there was a minor problem with the shower - it was notified and fixed by the time we were back in the afternoon. If you are wanting a quite and tranquil property at a very good price this one can be recommended.

We booked this 'boutique' through I-escape.com, which in the past had helped us find some amazing boutique hotels. Unfortunately this time we were disappointed. Rooms whilst clean and of a good size, are tired and require investment. A number of things did not work in the room on check in (safe, shower holder, slow draining shower) and strangely the taps on the shower were the wrong way around - hence the first night I had a cold shower needlessly! Breakfast was absolutely horrible - my banana pancake was uncooked, cakey, and tasted of cheap margarine. My boyfriends eggs benedict looked horrible and tasted the same, with the hollandaise sauce more of a grey coloured floury white sauce over basic white sliced bread and cheap ham! The next day we choose the fresh fruit option! Other disappointments were the beach (unpleasant walk to the beach along an alley way, littered, red flagged) and the distance out of town. Whilst we knew to expect this, we hadn't planned for the advanced booking rate on the taxis (as it's down a side road so no passing traffic). Positives, in fairness, were the quietness/tranquillity,the pleasant pool and the friendly service. However I wouldn't go back, and I wouldn't recommend.

This place is for you if-

- You want some peace and quiet
- Don't mind being a little walk from shops/ restaurants (We had a motorbike and it was perfect)
- Enjoy nice, fresh, Indonesian breakfasts and really friendly staff

We stayed here in Jan 2013 for 3 nights and loved it. Simple, but beautiful Bali style design with a nice pool, garden, outdoor bathroom, strong A/C, DVD player (perfect for watching those new DVDs when you are recovering from the sun), mini bar with Bintang, free tea/ coffee. Nice and easy. We hardly saw any other guests while we were there and that was fine with us! Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: We just had a standard and it was more than adequate, nice outdoor shower, view of garden, just a ro...

We booked a suite for four days but unfortunately checked in and checked out the next day. The room has nice high thatched ceilings but unfortunately is very musty and most importantly the air con did not sufficiently cool the room. We had it on 16degrees all night and the air still felt like a fan and as the room was so dusty it became very hard to breathe in there.
They did offer to put us in a new room but as it cooled over breakfast we could see there was no difference so we checked out.
The bathroom was great. Nice design. great shower head and the towels were clean and fluffy.
This is a good budget hotel but not for our needs.
There is also a sitting area downstairs but it felt a bit more like an old smoking lounge than one to rest to pass the time reading.
Some people are mentioning it's a bit of a distance away but we hired a motorbike for the time and so we felt it was in a perfect spot as it was off the beaten track but close to everything you need in seminyak. When we moved hotels we actually stayed on the same street. I suppose if you are only on foot then it would definitely be a long walk.

This was a great hotel. We stayed in a suite which was beautiful. The garden and pool looked lovely. It was quiet and peaceful but only a short walk from the beach or taxi ride from the bars. Would highly recommend. Breakfast was good too!

The 2 storey bungalows are spacious and well designed.
The pool and gardens look beautiful and are perfect for relaxing.
The location is about a 10min walk from shops in one direction and 15min to the beach which means you're away from the noise of the main road but still close enough to access local amenities. Perfect for us.
Kuta beach is a taxi ride of around 50,000Rp (£3).
Would stay again.

A peaceful setting with attractive well kept gardens. If you just want to lie by a pool & relax it's ideal. The location means that unless you fancy a 20 minute walk you will need to get a taxi to go anywhere. The walk to the beach is down some narrow alleyways & the beach is not picturesque as you might expect. The staff were friendly & efficient.
