This was a place we had admired for a long time but never stayed before. We have now and absolutely loved the place – it is just so beautiful! Take one step from the chaos that is Poppies 1 through the door into the hotel grounds and the transformation is immediate and incredible.
Peace and tranquillity everywhere and it is impossible not to relax.
Getting there - the hotel offer free of charge collection (or drop-off) from the airport which is a really nice touch.
Other than that, it is such a well established place every driver will know where it is. We discovered the Grab app while we were here and used that. It is cheap, reliable and efficient.
Location – excellent.
As I’ve mentioned, you are right on poppies lane one with all the entertainment that brings! Great bars and restaurants, convenience stores and about a 10 minute walk down to the beach.
The location really couldn’t be better.
Cottages – the first thing that hits you is the privacy.
Each one is like a little house with its own garden and beautiful veranda. We used the last named lots and spent many happy hours out on the morning and evening just relaxing. It has comfortable furniture, fan and thoughtfully coils for mosquitoes. By the way, to say this is such a garden based accommodation we got very little trouble with insects.
Inside the bungalow is very well designed and comfortable indeed. A TV along with a fridge, dressing gown‘s and a very comfortable bed which we slept very well indeed. There is a ceiling fan and fairly decent air-conditioning.
The outdoor bathroom is beautiful and has a net so no wildlife can't join you! The shower doubles as a bath and it is all done out in a beautiful Balinese style.
Wi-Fi – free for unlimited devices and runs at about 20 GB.
As someone mentioned, to have your individual hotspot you need to put the television on but we managed to pick up all the routers around the property easily as well. No need for constant logging in and it reaches all areas including the pool.
Pool – must be one of the most beautiful areas of its type we’ve ever been to.
Again, done in the local style it is absolutely beautiful and full of character. At times we were the only people using it so none of the selfish sunbed hogging here.
Staff – they simply could not do enough for you.
From the moment you walk into the property to when you leave they are unobtrusive but more than happy to help you when needed. Nothing is too much trouble and whatever you need will be provided with a big smile.
Food – we were in a room only so can’t comment on the breakfast. As I mentioned, there are shops everywhere so you can easily buy your own. As an indication of what a wonderful place it is we used to wake up two flasks of fresh water and complimentary bananas provided.
A small indicator of just what a superb place it is.
