“We booked a two-bedroom villa, even though it was just for my daughter and myself. The accommodation is amazing. We were woken up our first morning by a very noisy family next door, not respecting other people’s peace and quiet. The management moved us without any fuss – they said they had been aware of the noise. The restaurant has the most amazing views – it is such a peaceful place to sit in the morning.
The spa is beautiful, such a serene place.
The staff are all very attentive.
We had a blessing at the on-site temple, which I loved.
We went on the trip to Tamblingan Temple. It is such a great thing to see. The only thing that I was disappointed about was that on a very rainy day we trekked through the forest for an hour to get to the canoe, to take us across the lake. I had been advised that my canvas pumps were adequate ( I did have walking shoes in the room) but my feet were absolutely soaked. When we got off the canoe, it became obvious we could have just driven to the lake and got on the canoe. I do understand that on some days the forest walk would have been lovely, but it was too wet and muddy.
I was too soaked to go onto the waterfall (part of the same trip) – I’d also been told it would be very steep and wet. I just wish they had advised us properly before we set out, especially as I had asked (this was an expensive trip too – think we could have just organised a taxi)
Our driver was so lovely and offered to take us to a coffee plantation instead. We loved it there and held a luwak too!
Room Tip: The rooms near the spa might be quieter”
