products

7-star food, 7-star pool, 7-star mandara spa and 7- star piña coladas...

clientele

er...well...a german couple... a few rich indonesians. me and edward...

service

considering there are 60 rooms there are never more than about 15 guests. so, staff to guest ratio is about 20:1... you get to know all the staff within the first 24 hours. they tend to ask you 'how is your meal?' a lot...

interior

designed in 1994 by kerry hill who designed earlier amanresorts in asia. this hotel is a bit of a classic and probably has one of the nicest swimming pools on the planet. very typically balinese but sort of minimal detailing and every miniscule detail in this hotel seems to have been fussed over.

this is still one of my favorite hotels in bali... though a bit of a trek to get to....about 1.5 hours from the airport on quiet east coast of bali. [used to be called the serai]. great for 3 nights then go somewhere else...
