This is the place to go if you seek the "authentic Bali" and if you are looking for loneliness in a countryside residence. The hosts, Nyoman and Wayan are very friendly and try to make your stay comfortable and interesting. The bungalows are nice with a private balcony/terrace and a wonderful view towards the Mount Agung.
Still, if you do not have your own transportation, you will be very dependent on the activities offered by the Resort because there are no other opportunities for activities nearby. The activities offered by the Resort themselves sound great, but are overpriced (and could have a more of a professional character); for instance a tracking tour advertised as a "3-hour tour" was finished in 1 1/2 hours. The massage was done by a lady from the next village who came late, and was done in a place without any privacy (this place cannot be called a "Spa"). The quality of the food varied largely from day to day. Generally, the service was good, with rather long waiting times. One evening we waited for more than one hour.
Still: the view is wonderful - and therefore it might be worthwhile to visit this place.
