The accommodations were luxurious. The swimming pool area was not a disappointment. The beach is cut off from hawkers because of its location.
The location was a bit far from restaurants and shopping, but they had a shuttle to the Nusa Dua Galeria and the Kuta Galeria. Also, taking taxis was cheap and easy. Don't get suckered into taking the hotel taxi. They charge a huge amount. I mean HUGE.
The restaurants in the hotel are really expensive. The food is okay, but for that kind of money, it wasn't great. You can get the same if not better outside the hotel.
The hotel was a bit far, but being away from the hawkers was worth it for us.
