Great place to stay

Reviewed March 21, 2012

We came here from a very fancy resort in Jimbaran Bay so I was a bit worried that it wouldnt measure up. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised. Right from the start everyone was really friendly and hospitable. Special thanks to Dwi at the desk. The estate is just like the photos on the website. The entrance which is basically right in front of the lagoon villas is pretty impressive and looks quite appealling. However I cant imagine these villas having much privacy or quiet as their shared pool is right in view of everything, and some evenings there is entertainment. Also cant imagine this being suitable for kids as the rooms seems to open straight onto the pool. We(my husband and I and our 2 y old) stayed in a 1BR Deluxe Pool Villa. The location was good as it was at the quiet end of the estate, and close to the back entrance which was a close walk to Jl Seminyak and shops. The villa was clean enough, provided us with good space. We had a king bed, and they had provided a baby cot for our daughter, free of charge. The bathroom was a good size and also had a huge bathtub(big enough for the 3 of us!). We didnt have enough towels but as soon as we asked they appeared. They had put a fence around the pool which made us feel a little more secure with regards to our child. We really enjoyed having the ability to be able to have a quick private dip after a hot morning shopping. Nothing was ever too much trouble. It wasnt that far to breakfast but if we needed it, the staff were happy to come and collect us with the buggy. Breakfast was pretty basic but ample and edible. We each ahd a massage in the spa. This was included in our villa package, and we loved it. The prices didnt sem that expensive anyway(an hour massage for about $40) and it looked like they have various specials on certain days of the week, or would bargain. Just outside the back entrance, my husband had a massage for about $15-he thought it was really good too. My only criticism would probably be the lack of storage space in the room. There were not many coathangers or shelves to place things on. We really enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate returning with friends or family. We'd like to thank all the staff who were very friendly and hospitable.
