This place was a serene jungle retreat. The pool is fab, the rooms had great views and good little touches that are mentioned in the other reviews. Although the food and drink was expensive by Bali standards, it was very good and not matched by places we tried in Ubud. The included breakfast was just wonderful and you need to take your time over it. The menu changed every day and I wanted to have every option on it - if I had a big enough stomach! Likewise the complimentary afternoon coffee and cakes were imaginative and tasty.
What negatives can I think of? A few ants in the room, but that didn't bother us. The poolside bar area could be more bar like - but maybe they are trying to avoid that vibe? You may get bored if you stayed longer than 3/4 days... but it's a good place to unwind and a complete difference from the beach resorts. We then went on to Grand Mirage in Tanjung Benoa... review coming shortly.
