        Great place to stay, but could use some tweaking”

        Great ambiance! Absolutely loved the vibe of this place. Comfortable and beautiful! Had some issues with the shower. Hot water was run by gas and worked when it felt like it and at the end of our stay the water was struggling to even come out. Towels looked as they could have been change a couple years ago. At the breakfast that came with the room purchase, every item came with yogurt as a base which they were out of and there was no room for changes to other menu items. So breakfast was incomplete. One server on the staff was very indifferent to being there and seemed we were bothering her when we needed something. The remaining staff was amazing!

        I stayed with my daughter and her young baby. It was a perfect place for us with its beautiful setting, lovely comfortable rooms and great facilities. The staff were friendly, kind and helpful and the food in the restaurant was outstanding. The only difficulty we had was trying to get breakfast for the baby each morning with the restaurant not opening until 8am. The resort is not within walking distance of shops and there is no fridge in the room so it was a real challenge trying to keep a hungry baby happy from 5am until 8am. A small bar fridge in the room would have fixed the problem. Otherwise a really wonderful stay.

        This little gem is right on the beach, you can sit for hours watching the waves and the surfers in action. The staff are really friendly, the food is good and the Bintangs are icy cold. What more could you ask for.

        Awesome vibe”

        We loved this place, very relaxing and chilled. The room was basic but all we needed with mosquito net and pedestal fan. Aircon was great. The shower was a bit dodgy and there was no fridge, but we could live with that. Our room was well located 1 minute from the pool and restaurant area and the beach. The breakfast and general food was awesome in the restaurant and there were many other options in close vicinity. Great waves daily, not crowded. The yoga classes were well run. Great beach walks. Fully chilled, great vibe, thoroughly recommend it.

        Overpriced compared to other options”

        We stayed with 2 children (5 and 7). Pros - pool was in a nice location, but a little cloudy, location of resort was the stand out feature, small playground & swings helped keep children entertained. Cons- Room was very dark (we had joining room with children). Rooms had a ‘fusty’ smell and needed airing, bedding was dusty (my son got hives from it), food at restaurant was expensive, took a long time to arrive and was served stone cold. Breakfast took over an hour to get to us after ordering- including coffees.

        Best spot in Balian”

        I loved how i was able to wake up every morning to a delightful breakfast literally on the sand. You could not be any closer to the water. Yoga offerred twice a day, a sparkling clean pool, great aircon, great location, i wasnt able to surf in balian as the waves were much too heavy for my Longboard. But yoga classes are a must followed by relaxing by the pool. Wow. Just gorgeous grounds.

        location, cleanliness, atmosphere

        Think this hotel probably has the best location if you are here to surf. Rooms very clean and have traditional Bali themes with a bit of a modern surfer edge. Only stayed one night as a stop over to East Bali. But will be back to soak up some relaxed atmosphere.

        epic location”

        such an awesome location, right on the beach in front of the surf break. the joglo that we stayed in was behind the pool, which is right beside the beach. love the beach, love the wave. fun place for kids to beach comb. that said, it seemed a bit more run down than our previous visit, and the service seemed quite lacking this time. for each meal we had about a 45 min wait for something simple, be it our drinks, or our kids food. one meal our hungriest kids food came out close to an hour after ordering, and was the wrong order. yikes (aka bring some snacks with you because there's no store nearby). they forgot a few things for our room like the baby crib, and they were doing an impromptu restaurant renovation throughout our stay there, complete with lots of banging and no ground clean-up while they were at it. anyway, awesome place overall (for the price anyway), but would be nice to see it get a little more love from management or staff

        Then this is it, spectacular surfing, left and right handers. The staff are first rate, very helpful. The food is ok with plenty of choice nearby. The accommodation is very basic, if the rooms were from scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean, you will get my drift. Dark dank, mosquito infected ..... For us a downer, but then have a serious look, the surfing is top class.

        - Showed up late & they never knew about reservation, but accommodated so not a huge deal - No towels in room and had to ask for. - Internet never worked in room as advertised. - No yoga at all even though its right in their name - As a place serving more vegetarians than usual (being a supposed yoga center), there wifi password is beefburger. I find that a pretty clued out business move. - Room mediocre for price - Sent link after to ask for feedback and it never worked, hence I'm writing here instead - Breakfast was great though.

        such an amazing spot. great surf. good yoga classes. Mellow vibes. no hustle bustle of busier bali spots. so ideal. it's fairly rustic, but suits the place just fine. not sure why they have those super tacky fluorescent trickling lights on the trees outside. a few patio lights would suit the atmosphere better. and breakfast should open earlier than 8 if its a surf and yoga spot. but now we're getting picky.

The bathrooms and kitchen were very poor, lots of plastic pipes that didn't work Had to ask three times for toiletries and ended up with only soap. Wouldn't mind if we weren't paying a top price.

        Feeling relaxed ...”

        Our second stay here. It’s a great spot to relax, I think what made it so relaxing was the lack of bartering everything is priced accordingly to main tourist areas and everything went straight to the bill we paid at the end including massages and a trip to the waterfalls. The staff are beautiful. I’d love to see a pool menu currently only drinks. The rooms were comfortable. The shower was a little temperamental between steaming hot and cold but it did the job. Also the pool water quality was needing a little attention if I’m being fussy. But those are just minor things in the whole picture it is a wonderful traditional Bali style accommodation.
