This was our second visit to this hotel and the standards were exactly the same as last year. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are extremely comfortable, the food is very good and the staff are first class. Because of the Coronavirus scare during our stay this time there were sadly a lack of holidaymakers and the numbers dwindled every day until we left, leaving about 6 holidaymakers there. However, this did not detract from any services at the hotel. The spa reduced their hours which was totally acceptable. The food was still fantastic as were the staff, even the entertainment was still going. Everyone at the hotel dealt with the circumstances magnificently and I have to say you are all a fantastic example to your country. We hope that everything works out well for you all after this unpresidented time and that you manage to open again in the none too distant future. Well done each and everyone of you and thank you for a wonderful holiday Read less

Beautiful hotel with everything you need. Food is excellent. Very clean. Nice with kids. Despite that this is not a -kids focus’ hotel the little pool is great and plenty of space in the bigger one. The beach is nice and pleasant with enough beds for everyone. It was our second stay and we plan on coming back!

We have been several times to Bali, but this was our first all-inclusive resort in Bali. Previously we have opted to stay with just breakfast included, so this was a pleasant experience. The grounds here are well kept and compact and the beach has plenty of sun loungers of various types and enough for all the guests. At the beach there is no drink service, but they are available very close by. The swimming pool is adequate with a swim-up bar and service. There are three restaurants, one Ala Carte Italian and the other two buffet style, one of which is The Kitchen with both menu and buffet selection. There is a theme for every day for the buffet dinner and entertainment to follow after dinner every night with various themes as well. During each day there are scheduled activities for the guests and you can take their bikes, free of charge to ride along the beach for a good 10km. All the staff at the resort are very courteous and helpful. Indra, at the front desk was very helpful to us to resolve some of the issues we had during our stay. The rooms at the resort are well equipped, but here is where we have some criticism. The rooms are beginning to show some aging and could do with some refreshment. The tea and coffee facilities in the room is very minimalistic and could do with some upgrade, especially when this resort is classified as a 4/5 star rating. The seating on the terrace/balcony are adequate, but the chairs are not comfortable to sit on for any length of time, perhaps some cushions will resolve this. Read less
