Stayed here with friends, it has to be one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. Breakfast it’s wonderful and you can sit and eat it on your veranda. Hotel staff were courteous and always spoke to you. The pool is a quiet haven in a busy city. Definitely stay if you’re in Kuta.
All good things about this hotel in earlier reviews are totally correct and I fully endorse them. Value for money, an oasis, beautifully maintained, fantastic staff, nice restaurant and breakfast. Icing on the cake is the complimentary pick up and drop from the airport. The only problem is that it is so well hidden amongst a maze of narrow lanes, infested by zooming bikes, that unless your taxi driver knows it or your vehicle is a large one, it can be trying to find. Our lady taxi driver was in tears as she scratched her vehicle while trying to negotiate the narrow lanes. Also be sure you have a Visa card as Amex is not accepted here. We had a great stay and highly recommend it.
We saw this hotel 16 years ago and I had wanted to stay there. At long last I have and couldn't be happier. The hotel is in a very busy area but one wouldn't know it, inside the walls the area is quiet and tranquil. The cottages are delightful thatched, high ceiling buildings with covered entrance porches, where we had our breakfasts. The shower bathroom is absolutely beautiful with step down into shower. The swimming pool has the feel of a waterhole, burgainvillea flower heads floating in the water. The whole area is dotted with little water features, some with large Koi. The hotel has a driver and car for hire for tours around the island, it was very reasonably priced as well. All told this is an absolutely delightful hotel. It would be ideal for a honeymoon.
My husband and I stayed in cottage #24 for two nights before we left Bali. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Perhaps a bit dark inside and could use more lighting or higher wattage bulbs. We had to run the hot water for about 4-5 minutes to get hot water in the shower, but once that was figured out, there were no problems. We took advantage of the free transport to the airport on our morning of departure. We left the hotel at 6:30am and were probably at the airport within 15 minutes. We also pre-ordered (using the room service form) coffee/tea, a fruit bowl, and toast for our early departure. They bagged it all up and brought it to our cottage at 10pm. That was nice so we could have some caffeine in our systems before heading off to the airport.
We stayed for 2 nights on our way to Lombok with our son and his girlfriend. This is a special place with the villas styled in the authentic Balinese way. The rooms are super quiet even though you are in the middle of Poppies 1 with all the noise and chaos right outside the gate. Staff were exceptional and anticipated our needs before we even knew what we needed. Wonderful pool to relax in after a day of shopping or sightseeing. We will be back!
