Our favourite rooms
If you want to maximise your privacy, go for the Seaside Corner Suites, numbers 222 and 225, which come with wraparound balconies, littered with chairs and daybeds for relaxing in the balmy Balian air.
The unique inverted pyramid-style pool, which ensures shallow edges and a deep centre, is set beneath coconut palms in the landscaped gardens, and offers wonderful views out over the ocean beyond.
Bring some good hand-moisturising cream, you’ll want to soothe your palms after digging around in the organic garden.
Take part in a hands-on class at the cooking school, where East Balinese cuisine is a specialty.
Though the hotel doesn’t have any children’s facilities, kids are welcome. Extra beds or cots are available for US$35 a night plus tax, including breakfast, and babysitters can be booked a day in advance for around US$5 an hour.
