We booked this after reading reviews while searching for an offbeat location.
Trust me it was worth the move.
The property is located really really really away from anything u want to do in Bali like other tourists.
But if you are looking for a place to relax rejuvenate and kindle with the nature, this is the place.
We went with families and kids but is an ideal destination for honeymooners and lovebirds.
The owners Valerie and Craig personally take care of you during your stay...meaning to say not just for the money but to give you a 5 star personal experience. The experience begins once you check in.
The courteous staff pushed our heavy luggage to the rooms in a giffy.
Don't expect a big reception and a beautiful lady greeting you. The check in is hassle free while you relax . They arranged a reliable transport pick up from the airport which is a 2+ hour ride.
The rooms are really rustic and contained. Clean rooms, ample space . (My wife is scared of insect noises and chirps so she didn't like much after day 2 ) but its serene
You unwind in the nature and wake up by bird sounds and light.
Rooms are spacious and have basic amenities.
Remember you are in a forest , so don't expect too much and remember you are on honeymoon or vacation so no one would disturb you.
After staying several years in modern hotels here it took a day to accept the fact that tHere is no proper room service etc but shouldn't matter as the theme is “relaxation and unwinding”
The dining area is where the team interacts with you and tries to cater to your taste. We were a group of vegetarians and the staff quickly understood our needs and did all possible in the forest to serve us meals.
All the meals are prepared from fresh produce of the estate area and mostly organic.
The meals are prepared after consulting with you (so as good as “personal butler”
service). Yanni and Taka and ALL take good care of you.
The staff is really welcoming , always smiling and energetic.
We also used the massage services, rhea the masseur could massage hours together for our group mates.
We were vegetarians at the resort and the staff did all possible to accommodate us including allowing us to cook one meal our selves (under chef supervision).
We were taken on a plantation tour and a short trek into the tropical forests, which was amazing too.
Thanks Valarie for a splendid 4 night stay! Hope to see u all soon.
