Great staff, awesome food and gorgeous scenery! It was an interesting experience to stay in a local villiage- you can meet local Bali people from there. Everything seemed great except for the fact that the hotel is too far from the city center, tourist attractions and beaches! We had to spend a good amount of money for transportation. If you plan to stay in a hotel to rest, then it is a great place for you to relax. If not, you have to keep those advices in mind. Overall, we had an excellent time in this place! ;)
I stayed three nights and loved it! If you're after the whole Kuta Bali experience then this is not the place for you. If you're after stunning views, nature (I saw monkeys, lizards, frogs, birds from my balcony) and a relaxing get away from it all then this hotel is great. A free shuttle into Ubud is easy to organise for spa treatments (Bali Botanical is great) and sightseeing in Ubud, whilst the hotel itself provided clean rooms and friendly accomodating service. The language capabilities of the stafff where adequate to the standards I've encountered on previous trips to Bali, no worse. An attempt to learn a few words in the native language goes a long way as it does anywhere in the world (ie; terima kasih - thankyou, tolong - please). As a solo woman traveller, I also felt very comfortable - don't be put off by expedia claims that "clothing is optional" as throughout my stay all guests and staff etc were suitably clothed as befits the traditional culture of the Balinese. All in all, a great place to stay if you want to think, relax, swim in a boutique hotel, away from the strobe lights and crowds in Kuta.

Bali was an unbelievable experience. The resort was beautiful, relaxing and luxurious. The oversized chairs in the lower level of the restaurant are heavenly! I had a beautiful view of the pool from the balcony of my room. The resort has a spa which accommodated my last minute request for a massage. They also offer complimentary morning yoga. The staff are extremely friendly and kind. Each and every staff member was genuinely pleased to meet us and went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. It was a pure joy to interact and learn about everyday life in Bali from the staff. Everyone was amazingly accommodating. They graciously allowed me to order off of either restaurant menu while dining in the restaurant. Such a treat, especially for a picky eater like myself. For a nominal fee the resort offers ground transportation from the airport to the resort. The driver met us immediately upon leaving customs and assisted us with our luggage and had cold water ready for us due to the very warm day. The resort also offers a complimentary shuttle to take guests to Ubud (the local town for shopping). We visited the monkey jungle which is an absolute must see. Pack a comfortable pair of gym shoes because there was plenty to see and lots of walking. I will definitely make it a point to visit Bali (and the resort) again.
Doubtlessly second to none hotel in Bali, and maybe in Asia. Great get away, very quiet, well organized and gorgeous pool villas with a balanced mix of traditional Balinese architecture and modern appliances. The hotel's various activities provided half board basis were best to relax body and soul.
