Kathy and I drove by
it … and missed it. The sign is there, we just did not see it because of the
foliage or for whatever reason. When we came back on Jalan Uluwatu though we
saw it, there it was. We parked the car and were still not really sure, where
to go. The hotel lobby is tugged away in the back of a beauty parlor… but once
you step through the gate into the garden, it’s magic.
The bungalows or villas as they are called here have been beautifully restored with a very clear and unique design concept: Old time luxury travel. Every corner of the room is thought through for style and functionality. Antique, discarded objects have been collected and placed strategically around the property for fun and/or impressive accents.
The paint that is used on the walls shows a unique nuance; it is old world distressed and yet very modern. The historic phones each from a different era are restored and used within the hotel.
The beds and bedding of course are modern and luxurious, so are the bathrooms, although equipped with stone sinks and tubs. Traditional North African lamps light the way and similar paintings entertain the viewer.
There are gorgeous pools placed in the carefully
maintained garden surrounded by deck chairs and pavilion with padded sofas. Sip
a refreshing drink at the open air restaurant with Javanese wood carvings and contemplate
the international menu and the beauty of the surroundings.
This place is something you must see for yourself and get the feel for it; I have great difficulties describing the whole of it in adequate words. It is a beautiful, modern, relaxing, functional offering quality service and luxury and yet it exudes and air of antiquity, times long past. It reflects Bali definitely and absolutely in its style and accessory and yet adds a nuance of North Africa.
The hotel has access to the main street in
Jimbaran, and is close to the airport and other centers of interest like Kuta,
Seminyak and also Nusa Dua; and you are about a block away from Jimbaran Beach
