With a perfect-scoring location in eastern Bali right on the Lombok Strait, "this beautiful resort is very much in touch with its community." Freestanding suites, all with thatched roofs, cathedral ceilings, canopied beds, double terrazzo vanities, and patios with coconut-shell tables, are terraced on a hillside above "lovely, tiered infinity pools—what an amazing view." Expect service that's "amazing—the general manager is great."
