The atmosphere is spacious and generous, cool and inviting, informal and relaxing. The lightweight cotton robes and comfortable sandals are for you to wear wherever and whenever you are in the resort. The canopied bed allow cool breeze to waft around you, while deterring the occasional mosquito. The bathrooms, sunken bath with hot and cold water and their views into private courtyard gardens, enhance the feeling of freedom and naturalness
the menu offers you a combination of wonderful Balinese specialties, and more familiar western dishes.
