I've been diving there one year ago. It was great! This year I also had the room there. Just amazing! The Divecenter and the boat to dive with is within less than a minute walk within the area.

I really loved this hotel. The bungalows were set in rainforest type of gardens so were always cool. You could sit outside your room on soft chairs provided and it was lovely to look out at all the greenery.

Great room views of pool and sea, large bathroom. Only complaints would be the bath towels a little on the old side. Glasses and coffee cups not cleaned or replaced each day. Staff need a little more training in the restaurant, always have to ask for salt/ pepper. Orders never quite right at breakfast, due to lack of understanding.

We did not stay here but called in for lunch on our way back to Sanur. Beautiful setting right on the water for lunch. We were able to have a quick look at the rooms and they looked very nice. Would like to stay here on a future visit

We didn't stay at this resort, but it looked very nice. We had a nice lunch and a dinner in the restaurant which overlooks the ocean. Better view during the day as it is very black at night. They do offer a free shuttle to/from your hotel.
