A retreat to remember

Posted on Posted in Guest Reviews

“My wife and I stayed here for four nights as part of our honeymoon. We loved every minute of it.

The most important part to us was how friendly the staff was. From management to restaurant and spa staff, everyone treated us so well. Management was very helpful in providing ideas for us to fill our days with activities and see the areas. They organized all of our excursions.

The rooms are clean and have beautiful views of the rice field that the property is built next to. It was not bothersome to not have air conditioning due to the cool temperatures during the night and early morning. The pool is so clean and with great views. The spa was by far the best spa we had ever been to. It was also better than any spa we went to for the rest of our Bali trip (which included 3 different cities). Spa prices were slightly more expensive than in Ubud, but much cheaper than any 5 star hotels or U.S. cities.

Breakfast was absolutely delicious. You have a fresh fruit juice, pancake or yogurt, eggs, bacon, toast with fresh jams, fresh fruit place, delicious balinese coffee or tea. We also had dinner at the restaurant every night. We found the food to be fresh and delicious, the waiters attentive, and prices affordable.

During our four night stay we did a few activities, which I would highly recommend. The first day we took a little trek of the nearby rice fields which concluded wth walking into a waterfall. The scenery was beautiful, waterfall refreshing.

The second day we took a tour of lake Lembongan. It included a guide which guides you through a short trek through a forest-type area, and a slow canoe ride. After Lake Lembongan, you make a stop at the Munduk waterfalls.

Lastly, we tried the cooking class offered through the property. The young girl (named Ayu?) made us feel very comfortable and took us step by step through a yummy Balinese meal.

Overall, we absolutely loved this property and the activities it offered in the surrounding areas and will definitely return again.

(Please consider leaving small tips $1-3 for the staff at the spa and the restaurant/bar. It is by no means expected, but you could tell that it was much appreciated)”
