This was our first trip to Bali and I fear it has set such a high standard that we will not be able to stay anywhere else the next time we go.
This is a tranquil location set onwards of an hour and a half drive from Seminyak and Kuta, but believe me, once you get there you don't want to leave to go into the high tourist areas of Bali. The resort has everything you need, just there (we left to go on a couple of pre-booked tours to the the high tourist areas and didn't enjoy them as much as relaxing at the resort).
The architecture of the place itself is stunning and simply breathe-taking as you enter. We felt a little overwhelmed initially, but within just a couple of days it started to feel like home. While the location and rooms are amazing in their own right, we would go back there because of the staff. They were incredibly helpful, friendly, social and efficient and went above and beyond for us.
The food is excellent and top restaurant quality, and the prices are reasonable given the remoteness from the main centre of Bali.
Our room (One-bedroom Beach Pool Villa) was amazing and incredibly spacious, with our own pool literally outside the lounge room doors and the beach itself was only 100m away (not a swimming beach though).
We stayed there for 7 nights and were very, very sad to leave. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.
