Luxurious and charming

What we say: 4 stars

Previously known as The Serai, this long running property is set to the south of Candi Dasa on sprawling lawn grounds that run down to the water's edge. One of a number of Alila Hotels on Bali, staff confided this is the favourite in Alila's Bali family with the wedding crowd (a wedding party had checked out the day before we visited and they had a few more inbound in the near future) and it is easy to see why. Excepting the hotel's two luxurious suites the superior and deluxe rooms here are very well-appointed and furnished — if not the largest we've seen. The deluxe rooms are definitely the better deal as they are on the upper floor and have disproportionally large verandas with daybeds while the cheaper rooms are downstairs and just open onto the lawn. There's a few salas and lounges dotted about the place and a very good-sized pool sits at the centre of the grounds — it looked very tempting. There is little beach to speak of and at high tide there is none, with the waves washing against the retaining wall instead. We were told there's no real snorkelling to speak of offshore but the resort can arrange transfers to Blue Lagoon near Padang Bai as an alternative. There are also regular transfers into Candi Dasa as well, but some will prefer to have their own transport. This is a luxurious option with all the expected facilities of a hotel in this class, but the lack of a proper beach is a bit of a disappointment.
