From the moment we were collected at the airport with our included airport transfer (a special package deal) we relaxed into our holiday. Check-in went smoothly as well - but a tip is to make sure if you're on a special that you check that they have it all there on the screen. For example we had booked, and expected to pay for, late checkout - just make sure that they are aware. All sorted.
We arrived in the afternoon so felt it was our duty to check out the rooftop infinity pool and what was on offer up there. It's an amazing view, perfect for the beautiful Bali sunset and the pool bar menu is quite good too. (Quick tip - for a refreshing, delicious (non-alcoholic) drink try the Hawaiian Punch.) On the negative, as the pool is up high and right next to the sea it gets quite windy and there's not a lot of shade up there, But it's excellent for the sunseeker!
There are two other pools side by side on the grounds. There is a lovely little kids pool and next to that a lovely pool with shaded spots as well as sunny spots. Right next to the restaurant, this is also where they conduct the cooking classes. There is a bar here as well offering the same menu as the other pool upstairs.
We didn't have dinner there but we did have some snacks and all the food was delicious. We had the buffet breakfast every morning in the main restaurant. It was run extremely efficiently and I'm sure there was something for everyone. It was a very satisfying breakfast. On the negative side, the coffee wasn't the best even though they offer latte etc. It just wasn't that good. Lucky for the coffee shop up the road!
We had a room with twin single beds which were very comfortable with lovely soft pillows. There was a small couch in the room as well as a desk and chair, sideboard with a fridge (which unfortunately didn't work - not that we needed it) and another seat as well. What it didn't have in the room was somewhere to unpack our clothes. The wardrobe was in the bathroom so we made do with that. The bathroom was nicely appointed with the toilet with a door, a bath and separate shower. The supplied hairdryer worked well enough to not worry about bringing one (for my future trip!).
We splurged for an ocean-view and it was well worth it to every morning open the curtains and door to see the sea. We had a large balcony with sunbeds as well as a couple of seats and small table. It was quite hot laying out there though unless you went out earlier in the day. We met others at the resort who showed us their rooms which faced inwards to the resort. They had a pleasant outlook as the grounds are immaculately kept and beautiful and lush.
At the end of our stay, as I said earlier, we had paid for a late checkout so had plenty of time for packing and showers. We left our bags in the locked bag room and went out for a last hurrah. But our flight still wasn't until midnight so we made use of one of the great amenities of the Nirwana - the Connectivity Lounge. This is a lounge area with comfortable seating, a TV, computers with internet and shower facilities. It made it so much more relaxing for us knowing that we had somewhere to wait in comfort rather than trying to find a corner in the lobby. It probably needs to be sprayed for mosquitoes on occasion though as there were quite a few around. Once again, the ride to the airport was comfortable and relaxing. Even if not included, it's worth paying for the hotel transfer. The van is much more comfortable and roomy than a 'taksi'.
I'm looking forward to bringing my family back!
