interestingly, the resort compound is composed of a large area of Bali-inspired villas, swimming pools and gardens. archways and intricately carved wooden gates divide its entirety to smaller areas of peaceful spots. it's quite easy to move around because of the large open lawns and stairways.
villas were strategically placed on areas that gives you a sense of privacy from the larger open grounds of the swimming pool and play areas. there are four types of villas:
terrace villas - 2 queen size beds, a personal bar with refrigerator and its own terrace
garden villas - 3 queen size beds, a personal bar with refrigerator and its own terrace
executive villa - 3 queen size beds, a personal bar with a designated bar tender and waiter, an exclusive garden terrace, and an outdoor jacuzzi.
kids will love this place. one big reason would be finding the ten freely roaming peacocks in the resort compound. often moving around in groups of four and if quite lucky, you get to spot them on their most beautiful state. that's when they open their colorful large tails. next thing that kids will definitely enjoy is the open playground and a game room where they can play board games and console games.
overall a great spot to consider if you want to rest and be disconnected from the busy lifestyle.
swimming - there are several number of swimming pools in the compound.
walking - follow the walking trails from the main open area to the gate. you will be surprised to find small spots of interest.
do nothing - though it has great amenities doing nothing still is a great activity
