I took my extended family here in October. We only had one night because the next night and the night before was full. We'll certainly be back!
Lovely staff, and such a pleasure to meet them! A special mention to Beratha who we met at breakfast the next morning : what a delight he is! Speaks many languages so make sure you have a chat with him! Well traveled and he has the best sense of humour. Had both my daughters laughing and laughing ......... well, we were all having a good time!
Saturday night was quiet, but we made our own fun. Lots of joyful conversation which flowed easily due to the nice food (not super fantastic but good enough), the wonderful service (Ayu was terrific!), and the general ambience : other guests probably thought we were quite mad, but we were relaxed and happy. It was a wonderful stay. Rooms were quite adequate and we loved out door showers. Nothing to complain about, but don't set your expectations too high.
Menwi might seem remote, but it isn't. Not far from Seminyak/Kerobokan : and lots to explore in the surrounding area. I'd use it as a base for several nights, and if I were going to do this, I'd try to get a room with rice field views as it is closer to the swimming pool.
Looks to be a great place to have a low key wedding, and your guests would not have to pay to much to stay. would be lots of fun for any sort of family reunion, event ......... I thoroughly recommend it.
Although I only put 3 for kids activities. The 5 year old in our group just loved it, exploring and running around, feeding the fish, playing with Beratha ....... well done Puri Taman Sari.
And thank you Beratha, you made our stay even more memorable!
