I was first enchanted by Surya Shanti a year ago, and could not wait to return. My recent visit not only did not disappoint, it actually was even more enchanting that the first. Sidemen is a quiet town in the hills, known primarily for its songket weavers. And Surya Shanti's location on one of the hillsides assures that there is always a slight breeze. During the day, the vistas are the bright greens of the rice padis and the deeper greens of the forested hillsides. At night you can see across the sea far below to the lights of Nusa Penida. And you can enjoy all of these things from your private porch or patio, from the infinity pools, or from the lovely dining area. Every room is delightful, the spa is charming and the massage therapists skilled, and the food is delicious. I was ill one day while we were there, and I cannot think of a sweeter place to recuperate or a more solicitous staff always ready to bring more juices or chicken soup. Be sure to ask if the children are rehearsing the evening you are there: they are delightful, and welcoming. One little gentleman came to me, bowed, and invited me to dance!
