Beautiful paradise in the island of Gods May 01, 2009
A friend and I stayed at the Novus Bali Villas in April. We found it on the internet and they had a promotion at the time. We looked at the photo gallery and it was what we wanted, however it is far away from the beach. We got a free airport transfer with the rate that we paid and free breakfast. The check in was very smooth and staff were very warm. The hotel had a major renovation when we got there, there were only 7 villas at that time and the rest were in construction. The swimming pool was huge and just next to the spa just below the main reception. When we got to the resort it was already dark and could not see much, plus after a long flight all you would be looking for is a shower and the bed.

I was very tired from the flight that i didn't bother to even ask about the facilities. When we got to the room, we were very impressed. We entered a blue door that seems like a gate with a big padlock and it led to a stair case. We went a couple of steps down and half way through there was a little square pond with koi fishes in it and with some concrete steps. On the left side was another blue door that leads to the bedroom. The bed looks very inviting. So, we entered the door to the right is a wooden sliding door that leads to a veranda and over looking the plunge pool and further down is a river and a lot of bamboo trees. On the other side of the bed is another wooden sliding door which leads to the dressing room with a huge mirror and two basins, further is another sliding door that leads to an outdoor bathtub and shower area as well as the toilet. The room smelled like flowers, there's a lot of frangipani trees around and the flowers are falling on the ground everywhere. It was really a great choice. We enjoyed the room very much and our plunge pool.

The following morning we walk around a bit trying to figure out what to do all day. We discovered the restaurant, a very small one with only about 20 persons capacity. There was a buffet and a live station that you can order omelette and anything fried. There was only one other table occupied and ours. Apparently there were only 3 rooms occupied at the time we were there. After breakfast, we met the GM, it was not hard to hunt us down for such a small place. He is a very nice guy, young and very warm, it seems like we knew him for a long time. He told us the story about the place and future plans. He also informed us that we were upgraded to the riverside pool villa. We were very pleased and thank him as we really loved the villa. We negotiated to stay for more nights and asked for a better rate. So he gave us a discounted rate, which we took without hesitation. We also met the person who was cleaning our villa, she was so young and shy but has a really nice and warm smile. She brings me flowers every morning.

Over all we had a great stay at the Novus, the only thing that was not good was the villa next to us was still under construction. Most of the time they start working around 8.30am and it wakes me up. And during the day I felt I dont have much privacy in the plunge pool as the construction workers were just on the other villa and can see me from there. Also, if you go somewhere, it is quite far from the main centre, ie. the busy party places of legian and kuta. Some of the taxi drivers doesn't even know where it is. But the service and style of the Novus is great and provided that the construction is done and the hotel is fully operational I would love to go back there.

Plataran Bali Resort & Spa Overview

An exotic labyrinth of Balinese Luxury with enchanted gardens and twenty traditional villasPLataran Bali Resort and Spa is far from the madding crowd, yet just 45 minutes drive from the airport and 15 minutes drive to Seminyak, comfortably tucked in next to a village and the lush green paddy fields with a river flowing alongside the villas. PLataran Bali villas are similar but not the same. Singularly exquisite, together a labyrinth of surprises. Soft fabrics exquisite furniture a seamless blend of nature and tradition both inside and outside of the villas. Spacious grounds to wander in - enchanted gardens. The reception of the resort is a careful reconstruction of a joglo called Sawaagat which means welcome in Sanskrit. This particular joglo is 250 years old and has been transported from its original location in central Java and reassembled at the resort to give you a blend of Indonesia culture across the islands. At the centre of the resort, there is an inviting swimming pool, lined with green natural slate. This pool overlooks the river, bamboo stands, and has sun loungers set in a natural Balinese garden. The Shanti Restaurant serves superb Indonesian and International cuisine, with a selection of wines and cocktails available. Activities abound, yoga cycling, surfing, cooking class, getting married-a special celebration they are all here. Enchanting walkways throughout sheltered hidden gardens pleasant open lawns, bridges and pavilions. A hidden pearl on the outskirts of Seminyak.
