Ballin’ Review #23 – Kayumanis Nusa Dua

February 18th, 2010 No comments
Think... fortress compound + cinnamon scent + unheralded service =

.... Kayumanis. With four locations in Bali (Sanur, Nusa Dua, Ubud, Jimbaran), they have consistently built their reputation on 3 principles; spacious grounds, utmost privacy, and personalized service. Starting with their Ubud location in 2002, Kayumanis just kept getting better and never really looked back. Winning multiple awards from Conde Nast Traveller and CNBC Asia Pacific, it really does feel like almost no one is around you.

Was lucky enough to score a few nights at their Nusa Dua location which turned out to be a great experience. Having stayed in many places in Bali, i can understand enough what seperates the good from the mediocre. Besides having your own personal butler there are plenty of other amenitities such as modern kitchen, huge pool, and free mini-bar (woohoo!). Kayumanis means cinnamon in Indonesian and EVERYTHING smelled like it, right down to the soap.

Also took a bike around Nusa Dua, have completely forgotten the "quiet" side of Bali. Gotta get outta Seminyak/Kuta more often!
