Nothing to do with the hotel but: One thing I would say is that drivers
aren't allowed in the Mother Temple with you, this is the only place
in Bali where we had trouble, the 'Guardians' of the temples
were rude, horrible and aggressive, however when looking online these
people don't actually work for the temple and are just there to con
This hotel is fabulous, the service was amazing, the location was great
and the pools were picturesque.
Although the hotel is on a busy road, once you enter you can't hear any traffic-it's wonderful.
They also offer free transport in u if, so you just call reception when your ready to be collected around town. However nothing is really far away, when they say it's a 20 minute walk, it only took us less then 10 minutes.
We also hired a driver from the hotel and went on a 10 tour (cost about £40)-I know you can get a driver cheaper outside the hotel but we found the staff really friendly so we asked for a particular member of staff to take us.
If you come out of the hotel and turn left, there are two restaurants which have a pond in the middle -these were really nice. Opposite is the yoga barn, you have to walk down an alley (completely safe)- they also have a restaurant inside. Also down this road at the cross roads is a supermarket where we picked up large bottles of water for about 20p. At the cross roads you can turn left and walk for about 5-10 minutes and you will be at the monkey forest (which is a great place to visit). On our last night we are I. The dirty duck restaurant-food was good and the restaurant was huge!
