“Lovely Place”
Reviewed 16 February 2010

It's a lovely place if you want out of the busy Kuta area. Friendly, efficient staff as when I requested for something, it will only took them less than 3 minutes to get them to my room!!! Breakfast can be served at room and that's what we did...having it at our balcony. Breakfast is average though. Room is cleaned everyday with fresh towels supplied daily.

Our first visit to Bali. We stayed in 3 different locations and styles of accommodation during our stay (Intercontinental - Jimbaryan Bay & Komaneka Ubud). There was a lovely welcome from the staff at Abian Biu when we arrived and at all times they were more than happy to accommodate special requests and offer help and guidance with the 'what & how' to do things in Bali. It is out of town a bit, so, too far to walk. We hired a motor bike which turned out to be a fantastic (and free feeling) way to get around. It was nice not to be staying in the madness of Kuta. The rooms were clean and the outdoor shower and bath a unique experience. Food, restaurant and pool is basic but as with all Bali hotels the plants and grounds are lovely. Besides the friendly staff the other huge bonus of staying here was the value for money. We stayed for 3 nights for $15 more than 1 night at Hotel Intercontinental. We spent most of our time out and about so to spend a heap of money on a luxury hotel would have been wasted. We would stay here again. Tip - just ask for a room away from the road at the front of the hotel.

This hotel is lovely, the location is the best part...its such a welcome retreat after the chaos of Kuta!! Set in the middle of rice fields and with wonderful banana plants all around and in peace and quiet its like a small piece of paradise :-) you can really relax there. Our room was gorgeous, traditional Balinese furniture and a beautiful bed with mosquitoe net over the top. The door is wonderful as you have to lock it with a padlock as though you were in a castle. The bathroom is cute with a creative stone floor. Shampoo & shower gel are provided in the room and a hairdryer is available on request. Two bottles of water are provided each day for free and there is a safe and a/c. The room was very clean but as soon as you open the windows bugs and ants invade as it is in the middle of all the plants and fields so this is to be expected! The pool looks lovely although we didn't try it. Getting to Seminyak only takes 10 minutes by taxi (depending on traffic) and costs around 25000 rupee - taxi drivers recognise the address as "UMALAS 2". Staff will book taxi for you and are full of advice on where to visit and where to eat etc, very friendly people. Breakfast was included, we tried it once but we were not impressed. The food area wasn't the cleanest and everything was doused in chilly sauce...Overall we enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would recommend it to others.
