Great Place To Chill Out

Reviewed December 30, 2011 1 person found this review helpful After backpacking across Java for three weeks we chose this place to chill out in a bit of comfort before heading across to Bali. We found it the day before in the Lonely Planet Guide and what a great choice!

BAR: Down the end of the foyer and another down by the pool. The foyer was very large, comfortable and open. A great place to sit and chill plus the beer was very cold and very cheap.

STAFF: The reception was very helpful and tried hard as most had only limited English, although it wasn't an issue. The hotel was quiet when we arrived so we got a room of our choice heavily discounted. This was offered not asked for so it was a good start. From the gardeners to the chef we found all the staff very polite and respectful.

FOOD: Primarily Indonesian and limited European. Anyone who loves Indonesian food will be very satisfied. Also very cheap which was a great (although Java is very cheap anyway. Even compared to Bali)

POOL: Big with maintained surrounds and a great view overlooking Bali. Plenty of sun lounges to catch some rays and towels were plentiful. The water was cool (not cold) and clean.

ROOMS: After weeks of backpacking it was clean and luxurious. Being large, well lit and having a king size bed was good enough but the huge bathroom was awesome. Anyone not happy with the room would be very hard to please.

LOCATION: Only 5 minutes to the ferry with a great view overlooking Bali. The most noticeable thing about the hotel is the beautiful internal surrounds. Lots of manicured lawn with paths set amongst palm trees and gardens. Also hidden villas.

GUESTS: Very few at the time. Mostly Indonesian (many high ranking army with wife's) and some European couples

RATING:If you just want to relax with a book, have a swim and forget about the world look no further
