We stayed at Damai for New Years Eve 2011.
Not only did we thoroughly enjoy the most incredible accommodation and NYE festivities (we will remember the sumptuous 7-course meal and local Balinese music & dancing forever!) but we experienced service from the staff that truly was world class.
We were cycling around Bali by ourselves, so the friendly staff Oka and Prima assisted us in booking onward transport for our luggage and giving advice on directions.
However due to bike mechanical problems and deteriorating weather conditions, we became stranded in a remote location high up the mountain above the hotel and knew that we couldn’t make it to the next destination.
We called the Damai and asked if they could assist with organising a taxi to pick us up (along with our bikes) – which Oka and Prima did – but then Oka also drove to meet us after he had finished work, while we waited for the taxi. He didn’t have to do this, but it made us feel quite safe. Oka assisted in translating, ensuring the driver knew about our predicament and exactly where we needed to go.
We made it to our next location in one piece thanks to the assistance of the staff (both on duty and off duty!).
This made our Damai experience not only wonderful, but perfect.
Standouts: welcome drink was delicious (even more so after arriving by bike) and we stayed in the Umah Master villa (sublime). NYE degustation menu is a MUST for foodies, but the standard brekky was delicious (freshly baked breads with international cheeses.....).
We'll return again.
