Pros: Lots of greenery, small patch of paddy fields surrounding the area, refreshing pool (cold as it is freshwater), quiet, fresh vegetables.
Can improve: The food can improve and it might be best to serve simple local dishes. The hotel can inform guests in advance (or put up signage) that the main road commonly used to get to the hotel is broken. Most guests had to detour another half hour. We've never seen so many flies in one place. This might be due to fertilisers put in the plants. Maybe the hotel mgt can put a few fans in the resto/reception area so that the flies don't come to the food. Staff can be friendlier, more customer-oriented and provide better info (ie tours, massage, car services) to guests upon check-in. Would be great to have an inhouse yoga teacher who can teach daily so that there are add'l activities.
Cons: There's nothing (as in cafes, warung, grocery store, basic facilities) in the area other than the temple (1 1/2 walk), no tv/movies/wifi, no newspapers or info what is happening in the outside world. The hotel driver drove recklessly and too fast. He was also spiteful when we mentioned that we're not sure if we're using his services the next day.
