Beautiful luxury villas to relax with the best views to the hills. Everything was modern and sparkly clean. Staff was so nice and room service is available via Whatsapp. Restaurants has delicious and healthy food. Sunsets at the pool were a dream. If you are looking for activities, scuba diving in the area is great!
Oh, I love this place! We stayed at Felix Villa. This villa is amazing! It's clean, beautifully designed, had an amazing view! We stayed there initially for 2 nights but because the villa is so beautiful, clean & comfortable + we received a top notch hospitality service from the staff, we decided to extend u til 6 nights! Plus, during this time, the villa gave us an amazing discount due our extension. So it was a really good deal for that kind of place!
The villa is designed kinda industrial/wooden/minimalistic way - kinda of like my dream home 😊 it has a huge king bed, open bathroom (there's still sliding glass door), amazing kitchen & my favorite is the wooden sofa/swing facing to the communal infinity pool (but there's only 2 villa, including the felix villa that is located in front of the pool so for most of the time it feels like a private pool! (It was only on the last Friday we were there, there were more than 5 people in the pool area).
One of the top thing about this villa is the view! We can see mountains, ocean from the pool area 🌟 which was pretty amazing.
Plus i really love the efficiency of the service there! We can contact the restaurant/receptionist/ room manager whatsapp & a cell phone that they give us during our stay to contact them! Really efficient & helpful!
We also met the owner of the villa! He's really nice & friendly. We ended up hanging out with him.
Basically, this villa is a top notch recommended! Best experience i had in Bali!
This place is beautiful. From the landscaping to the many different designs in villas and rooms, the reception, the yoga shala, the swimming pools, everything is thoughtfully placed and arranged. The whole place is stretched out over two valleys with equally stunning views from all the different spots.
The staff is lovely, extremely attentive, and friendly! Please tell them how great they are. They made us feel super welcome and at home.
We stayed for 3 nights in one of the rooms near the reception. I absolutely loved the cooling concrete room, the massive window front with the modern touch. The room was really spacious, clean, and comfortable. The balcony is so big, it feels like an outside living room and the swinging bed is great to watch the sunrise in the morning.
I was super happy to see that the room comes with a refillable water container (no PET bottles!), the coffee doesn't come in little plastic packed portions either, but in a refillable container and so does the soap and shampoo.
Only criticism: The adjacent rooms are connected at the bathroom ends and when in the bathroom you can hear and follow the conversation in the neighboring room as the wall is poorly soundproofed. But luckily inside the room, you don't hear the neighbors.
The Restaurant: At the time of stay only one of the restaurants was open, due to the covid situation. The food was always fantastically presented. And the staff work clean (you can see into the kitchen) and quick.
I was really hoping to be blown away. But the taste was, unfortunately, a bit of a hit and miss. Some dishes (Poke Bowl, grilled fish specials, and the Burger) were very tasty, and a great combination of foods. Others like the curry lacked in flavor and the biggest disappointment was the risotto: beige, bland, and with canned mushrooms. There are so many fresh mushrooms or dried mushrooms available in Bali - don't put canned mushrooms as your main ingredient on a dish, please. But I also do want to point out that the restaurant makes its own sourdough bread which is absolutely delicious and makes the continental breakfast (included in the room price) a winner!
Overall we really loved our stay at Sumberkima Hill retreat and we hope to have the chance to visit again soon. (Living in Labuanbajo, Flores, Komodo, this should be possible).
SHR is a complex of villas under construction. As a result to intelligent planning the approx. 20 villas that are already finished offer luxurious space and privacy while the rest of the project is yet in progress without disturbing the guests. Our villa was 240 sm wide with a huge living room incl. an open kitchen, 2 double bed rooms with ensuite bathrooms half indoor, half outdoor. The space between this villa and the extra buliding with a 3rd double bed room/bathroom was a terrace designed around a 20 sm infinity pool. A few stairs down the hill we found a 2nd terrace with swinging daybeds and lies for a perfect hide away from the heat. The welcome was very warmhearted, including the introduction of various opportunities like excursions, yogaclasses, and their individual shuttle service to and from the pemuteran village e.g. the Amerta – another resort with direct access to the beach of pemuteran bay incl. bar, restaurant and diving station.
Part of the equipment of our villa was a telescope. When it got dark we soon knew why. During clear nights we could observe some volcanic activity of the javanese mount Ijen – some 50 miles out. Quite an impressive extra!
What we didn't like at all was the quality of the two restaurants (SUMA for sunrise & SENJA for sunset). Tiny portions and a lack of knowledge especially about western products and preparations came as a surprise to us. When finished, the high end approach of SHR should also be matched here.
We stayed in the Basuki Joglo wooden house and it was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed in Bali!
The house stands amongst the villas with a little private garden area and its own sunbed looking out over the valley. The perfect place for relaxation, reading or naps! The house has a beautiful outdoor shower and open-air bathroom that we loved. The on-site restaurants (there are two) offer delicious food and breathtaking views (on for sunrise, one for sunset).
There is a lovely infinity pools available for use if you book this room that has an amazing view over the valley to the ocean and it’s a quiet and peaceful place to watch the sunrise if you’re not watching this from your own personal balcony.
There is also yoga and a spa on site and the team are ready to assist with any bookings you need such as snorkeling or diving or even a trip to Java to climb Mount Ijen!
Honestly can not recommend this room/house enough!
