After days of traveling on and off, it was lovely to stop and rest in such a beautiful environment. The boys enjoyed the pool, buffet breakfast catered to both international and Indonesian tastes. Staff were lovely and very friendly. Beach views were amazing.

... a protective mother hen, and wanted them to hold my hand, which was insane considering the amount of people we were trying to navigate around to get to our transport bus that was going to take us and all of our suitcases to the Hotel.
