We will work with you to organize your arrival: taxi quotes, luggage carry and welcome orientation with our staff.
Enjoy our friendly staff, who will shop, clean, do some cooking, take out your personal laundry, give directions to local restaurants, massage spas, places to rent cars and motor bikes and taxi stands. The staff will give you the password to the WiFi system (which has sufficient speed for personal Internet use) and answer questions about Balinese culture, local Balinese dance performances and temple visits.
The best walks wind through rice fields, down to our river and its jungle, past views of the Western mountains, past rice field ducks and rice farmers, to the local Hindu temple.
