We found this hotel by looking at Trip Advisor - and trust me that's the only way you will find it. Yes this 'estate' is big and has lots of different types of villas, but unfortunately the LOCATION IS BAD (yes they will drive you in a golf buggy the 5 mins up the road, but that's only one way, you have to walk the 10 mins back through the backstreets on the way back).
We stayed in the Lake Villas which initially we thought were fabulous as you can literally jump out your door into the pool - unfortunately the novelty for this quickly wore off when you begin to notice the "OLD" touches in the villa (e.g. front door lock which takes 5 mins to lock, safe which is so old, shower head which you have to hold the button for hot water, and due to the LOFT STYLE it gets pretty hot in the room.
The most disappointing part was at 7AM every morning they have traditional Balinese MUSICIANS playing for the breakfast guests - this is great unless you happen to be in the villa closest to breakfast which the musicians set up right outside. We put up with this for 2 mornings, and hats off to the hotel, as soon as we complained they moved us straight away to the furtherest villa, but still that was 2 of 3 mornings which we were up at the crack of dawn - not my idea of a holiday.
It's a shame as this Estate could be amazing - if only there was easier main road access and if they modernised all the villas (the 2nd villa we moved to was much more modern - so its pot luck which one you will get). The STAFF were AMAZING during our visit, so no complaints there.
