Beautiful hotel grounds with large comfortable rooms. The hotel is built in a traditional Balinese style and fronts the beach. We saw fantastic sunsets from here. The hotel is located on the outskirts of Jimbaran and therefore not within walking distance of the town. While free wifi is available in the lobby and restaurant, it is not available in the rooms. Our biggest complaint is that the air conditioning stopped working around midnight. We were unable to open windows because of Mosquitos so we spend a night roasting in our room.

It's refreshing however hearing the different languages ring out as you travel around the island. It's amusing hearing everyone switch from their native language back to English. It's universal here in Bali which makes it rather effortless to scoot around. The foreigners are pleasant and everyone wants to hear each other's stories. I cannot get over the amount of people who have quit their job to come and travel to Bali and some of it's surrounding ...
... community we would decide to clear out a big dirty area, fix the big pizza oven, try to make pizza all day..only to fail and cook something else… leave a huge stack of dishes…. Electricity goes out.. huddling in the beautiful backyard, with candles, playing guitars with tea… turns into psy trance music and hoola hooping lessons (form the girl that went to the hoola hooping retreat for $1400 for 1 week!!!! – ridiculous).. turns into arak and ...
