My husband and I plus our children aged 19, 11 and 7 along with my mother stayed here for 24 nights.We booked direct with the resort and from the 1st e-mail through to the night we left we could not have received better service.
We were greeted at the airport and taken to the resort which was a shock at first as it is up in the hills and a little out of the way. Was a bit worried I had made a bad choice re the children etc.Was quickly taken to our 3 bedroom villa and got a pleasant surprise they were absolutely stunning .Everyone was impressed with their rooms.Got taxi's into nusa dua first night for a meal then walked along the street picking up cards from all the restuarants so we could organise pickups from resort to restuarant of choice for the following nights. Restuarants were very happy to pick you up and return you to your resort .Ate at the resort on 3 occassions had 2 free dinners included in our booking 6 people x 3 courses for each meal .The quantity and quality plus service of the meal was fantastic.We had 1 of the meals in the main restuarant at the grand village and the other 2 in the cave restuarant which they opened especially for us, on each occassion we were the only diners. The only reason I can give for this is that it was quite expensive compared to eating in the restuarants in town.The breakfast was a buffet with hot and cold choices plus eggs of your choice cooked to order.You could also have cappuccino, cafe latte etc with your breakfast as many as you liked.
House keeping staff were very thorough and pleasent and very happy to have a chat. Had free wi-fi connection and didn't have any trouble getting it to work in the villa.The resort was on the sides of the hills and the view was fantastic, The resorts had 2 main swimming pools which we had to ourselves most of the time. Guests are mainly Korean who only stay for about 3 days . While we were there, there were some other westerners so our children made some friends which kept them occupied for about 10 days out of our stay, We used the shuttle service to and from the beach and bali collection, they even took us to the water sports.The kids never complained that they were bored or had nothing to do, Hired a driver a couple of times and also got a taxi into Kuta and the Waterbom park a couple of times but was very happy to return to our very private and quiet oasis.We have been to Bali 6 times and would have to say we enjoyed this stay the most.You might say it is out of the way and it is not the real bali , but it all depends on what you are after. Have stayed Tuban ,Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Mas, Lombok and Sanur before.
Overall it is a very beautiful resort. Staff are very friendly and attentive nothing is a problem , if something is wrong they are very quick to correct the problem. We are hoping to go back in 2012, they are currently starting a complete refurbishment of the Grand village which they say should be completed next year. We made a lot of friends and hope to see them all again in the not to distant future.
