Fodor's Review

This posh, adult-only all-inclusive channels the fictional Bali H'ai (with colonial architectural flourishes) on 40 lush acres. There's a man-made lagoon and stunning grotto pool; a bird sanctuary laced with nature trails; and a magnificent boardwalk-lined ecru beach. The gardens are as manicured as the discriminating clientele, and they cannily conceal the splendid Indulge Spa, incorporating natural elements into the design. The soothing, at times crashing, surf serenades

the Creole-style beachfront buildings and romantic Gauguin restaurant (with clever, thatched private-dining alcoves). The handsomely appointed superior and deluxe beachfront units (Numbers 47–48 are centrally located; avoid 77–80, which abut potential mosquito breeding grounds) represent the best value, though towering palms slightly obstruct even the second-floor views. Suites splendidly balance an old-style plantation look with modern necessities (including Wi-Fi). The Gauguin Cottages, replete with plunge pools, are charming but slightly claustrophobic. But these are minor quibbles for honeymooning couples and corporate bigwigs escaping the rat race.
