If you are looking for a place to relaxe and rewind, for excellent service and beautiful diving sites than this secluded and spacious resort in the North West of Bali is the ideal place to be. I've stayed in one of their four standard bungalows with my own little terrace, open shower and a nicely furbished Indonesian style room. I've spent most of my stay with diving around Menjangana Island with its unspoiled colourful diving places full of corals and fish. A wonderful experience also thanks to Robert from ExtraDivers and his team! A shame only that they don't have their own diving boat (due to arrangement with the locals to use their very slow taxi boats). "Resort Advisor" Tania gave me also excellent tips for my - individual - day tours around Bali. Actually, she was able to help and answer your questions whenever needed.
The selection of food is limited but good (oh, how I miss those banana pancakes for breakfast). The staff is extremly friendly. Their spa facilities can be highly recommended. Not to forget to highlight their 30m + infinity pool and little hot spot with the spectacular view over the menjangana bay, the mangrove forest and mountains as well as the unspoiled night sky and all the smaller and bigger "wild" creatures you discover during your stay (maybe not always something for more sensitive individuals). A nature adventure in its best and most comfortable way!

Loved the hotel, Bayview Rooms upstairs are family rooms and fantastic with great views. Nothing to hard for the staff. Very friendly and obliging. Food is very ok. Not 5 star but look where we are. Swimming pool is amazing overlooking the bay. Snorkeling is a must and go by 9:00am. Craig Bali

Definitely the place to stay if you're diving on Bali's north coast: calm, close to nature, bungalows are superb, pools and restaurants are top class, the staff is impecable, and it's in the middle of nature: never wanted to leave!

Pricy, but worth each penny for the accomodation conditions, wonderful villas (choose Bay View), excellent pool with a view and of course friendly staff whom make you feel like at home.
Food in my opinion is just ok, breakfasts nice (we tried only Continental and American), but food overall is in our opinion too expensive if you compare the quality to the neigbouring villages. Tired with local food I ordered a pizza in a hotel and it was probably done from the frozen dough, not a nice experience, hard to eat.
I would also suggest not to use the hotel Diving Centre as it is overpriced as well. You can easily come to the small harbour nearby and arrange whole boat for 2 people for the price of being one of many in the trip organised by hotel. Also I find it strange that you need to pay extra for renting a bike in such an exclusive hotel, so there are things to work on.

Excellent place, far away from everything. Very cosy, very local, close to the nature.
If you're there there is just you and the nature. Excellent food - local of course. Very good, just perfect Balinese massage we had there. I know what I'm saying about because I'm deepened one and have a massage everywhere where I am.
The villas are different. Before you'll choose check which one will fits your expectations because they are vary. Every is nice, near by nature. You can feel there like in the local village.
Thats the place where you can go alone or with someone to reset you mind and body.
Take a book.

Snorkelling or diving there - perfect. Theres really unexpected nice reefs there. Really!
Just do it and go there!

We were absolutely enchanted by our stay!

What to Expect:
Secluded boutique resort with ~20 dreamy independent suites including large modern bathroom with volcano-heated spring water supply - including in the pool and the small ocean view basin. No beach. Ideal for divers and snorkellers to menjangan island. Very average restaurant.

Highlights:
- the volcano spring water everywhere in the resort
- the large spring water swimming pool overlooking the bay surrounded with flowers...
- the perfect king size beds
- the complimentary afternoon tea with warm cookies and fried bananas
- the large modern bathroom (in our lumbung) and its king size version in the Mangrove suite (so we heard)

Disappointments:
- the lunch and dinner menu : very expensive for Bali, especially given the limited options.
- the erratic service (sometimes they do not seem to understand what's going on)
- the systematic difficulty in booking transport

Advice:
- food: go for dinner at the Matahari resort in Pemuteran for an affordable Relais & Chateau experience (we did 2x). If you eat in Gawana: try the heavenly peanut sauce with the satay. Ask for the croissant at breakfast as they may not be offered to you otherwise

Room Tip: We were in Lumbung 10, it was spotless.

An incredibly beautiful and peaceful resort. We were there during low season, so had the resort almost to ourselves. Every member of the staff was amazing, helpful, caring, and kind - from the manager, to the drivers, to the front desk help, restaurant workers and groundskeepers. The rooms are beautiful, and the bay view cottages have great outside bathrooms.
