We spent a relaxing 7 day stay at this beautiful property in May, 2018. Waka Gangga's unique setting and gardens are lovely and the staff is outstanding. We ate all meals in the restaurant where the breakfasts and dinners were delicious, literally dining right at the sea. Our ocean view villa was wonderful with a private pool and all the amenities. The staff took such great care of us, we have booked for an 8 day stay in 2019!

If you're looking for a place to hide out in and chill, this is definitely your place. Away from the touristy spots, this is a beautifully designed hotel filled with little private villas, which means your stay is like living in a dream home. The staff are great people and fantastic hosts. Food at the restaurant is tasty. And if you need just a bit of excitement, you can arrange an excursion with the staff at the hotel, so you can tour other parts of the island. We'll definitely look to return.

Great hotel, away from the touristic places. A lot of privacy, great rooms and service. Excellent for people who want to have privacy and quite atmosphere. Food excellent and great view at the ocean. Good for relaxing. No mass tourist hotel. Cyclying around the area across rice fields is highly recommanded (hotel provides bicycles). Etc etc

This is undoubtedly one of the best places we've stayed anywhere in the world. From the moment we arrived we felt ourselves relax. Check in experience was great and we upgraded to the grand 2 bed villa.

The resort itself has fantastic facilities. Unbelievable view from the restaurant, lovely large pool by the seafront, great spa, and beautifully manicured gardens. Standards are very high, everything is well maintained and super clean.

The villas themselves are fantastic. Unfortunately the photos just don't do them justice. They are absolutely huge and beautifully designed and finished. The attention to detail was fantastic, e.g. on the light settings you've got choices like 'ambient' which low lights up all the ceiling. Bathroom was huge and finished to a really high standard, and stocked with natural toiletries. The outside space at the villa is great, good size pools and garden area and a covered seating/lounging area. It's so private and quiet.

Location wise it's off the beaten track. You're right on the beach which is a great place to walk before sunset. There's not much around but Tanah Lot is close by and the hotel offers a free shuttle there. If you want to have a drink or food elsewhere I'd recommend the lobster place a bit further down the beach... fresh lobster and prawns etc, really tasty. We stayed for 4 days which I think was enough, although ever since we left I've been wishing I could go back!!!

The staff were also fantastic. So friendly and attentive. Again small things and attention to detail that really made it, i.e. my husband was swimming in the big pool doing laps. They'd watched him and obviously thought he'd want a drink. So as he's finishing up someone appeared with a glass of water on a tray and a fresh towel. They did that for him every day without being asked.

If I was to criticise one thing I would say it would be the food. The breakfasts were good and plentiful, we never needed lunch! However dinner was just ok. Nice food nothing wrong with it but not quite to the same standard as the rest of the hotel and that's what I'm judging it against. Do not let this put you off going though! This is a wonderful hotel, so peaceful and relaxing and I would go back in a flash.

Thank you to the management and staff for a fantastic experience.
