We stayed in the Junior Suite for 2 nights and ended staying for 3 nights cos we just love the room. The check in process was smooth, the reception even reminded us to use hand sanitizer cos we touched stuff around there. The room is very big, it has 2 bathroom, bed is nice and comfortable, aircon is very cold. Pool towels and bath towels are provided in the room but you have to request for bathroom amenities. The pool is not very big and the water is a bit salty but its quite nice. The beach is awesome and the water is very clear. You can just sit in the garden or chilling on the day bed watching the beach. You can also do watersports here. Breakfast was good, but the first 2 nights, the menu was totally the same. Would recommend to change the menu each day. Overall we had a very good experience here, the staffs are friendly, the hotel atmosphere is calming and the room is nice. Will be back next time.

Probably the worst hotel booking I had in Bali. First I requested to check in at 13:00 one hour before official check in time. Because I know during COVID all bigger hotels are empty. If they are lucky they have 10% occupancy. That was declined for whatever reason. Ok, no prob since it was not offered. Arrived at 14:00, parking was full nobody at… Read more
Probably the worst hotel booking I had in Bali. First I requested to check in at 13:00 one hour before official check in time. Because I know during COVID all bigger hotels are empty. If they are lucky they have 10% occupancy. That was declined for whatever reason. Ok, no prob since it was not offered. Arrived at 14:00, parking was full nobody at the parking to tell me where to park or even a valet parking. Only one lady behind the reception desk. Then telling me at 14:00 they don’t know about my booking and the room is also not ready. So I had to wait for one hour in the Balinese heat. Of course not even a water offered, not even the complementary welcome drink. Walking around the hotel the disappointment got even bigger. Far away from the pictures! Super old hotel tried to modernize and n a low budget. 15:30 the room finally ready. First room impression very simple. Mini bar empty, no toiletries only one big towel for 2 of us. Booked a buffet dinner starting at 18:00. Very simple as well and on first view far not worth the charge! At 18:15 I got my starter plate, after 15 min rest I wanted to go for main course and it was almost empty! Just leftovers and a had to discuss with the cook to get a few sate skewers. Then the back to the hot room. AC on and nothing happened for 30 min. Meanwhile sweating in my room. Tried to call the reception for another 30 min. Finally someone picked up, I explained my problem and they said someone will come immediately but never arrived! Tired of sweating I felt asleep with open window and fan. Next morning looking forward for the booked “breakfast buffet” again disappointed not seeing any food arranged. Instead got a menu with 5 items. Really hungry took a fee of each. All things arriving was the quality of a really cheap restaurant or even bellow. Nothing you expect from a hotel or a breakfast buffet. At least the cafe latte was ok. Asking for a second one I had to discuss with the waiter again saying only one is included. Nice start in the day. More than happy to checkout now. Of course waiting again. Overall a really bad experience I can not recommend to anybody. It’s waisted money. If your hotel is not ready to server customer then don’t open. Read less

Very warm welcoming by the staff.So friendly and kind. Amazing design of the lobby and reception desk. The rental bikes and the massages were great.So much different variety of the food, both international and Asian cuisine. Loved the espresso coffee in the morning,if I am not wrong it was 100% arabica. We especially loved the entertaining programs each night. And we loved the dining on the beach, with the long preparation of the big round tables and chairs with bows. Each night was like a big important celebration,we loved that...to feel special every single night. The smell of Frangipani flowers were everywhere in the hotel,I will always keep this precious memory.Great value for the money, if you choose All inclusive. Highly recommended! Read less

It would seem that this hotel chain who have over 300 resorts around the world will continue to take bookings even though most of their hotels are closed so be warned that if you pay them and the hotel is closed they will keep your money and try to offer credits or vouchers for a later date however when you check the rates they have risen substantially. They have a complete lack of customer service and behave in a very deceptive and dishonest manner. Read less
