Charming beachfront resort, taken care into detail
I stayed 6 days @ Mambo Dive Resort and loved it. The resort itself is pretty new and you can tell. Everything is taken care into detail. The external areas are very charming, lots of tiny lights and plants hanging and creating a warm atmosphere. You can seat upstairs in a covered area, or downstairs, open air right by the beach. A couple of pools (one mainly used by the dive shop) facing the sea. Bali is in front of the resort, right across the sea, and with no couds, you can see the mount Agung just as you open your the window doors of your room. Great view from the upstairs rooms. Rooms are cosy and taken care in the smallest detail. The linoleum floor may not be as natural as nude wood, but I imagine it is done to smoothen the noise on the rooms downstairs. Rooms are equipped with brand-new towels, hair dryer, two glass bottles of water (and glasses), a kettle, tea, coffee, a small fridge with soft drinks/beers, and also a safe. The bed is comfortable and so are the pillows. You have a tv too, though I had no interest on turning it on, so cannot tell more about it. Bathrooms are bright, with a beautiful well-thought window by the sea, allowing view of the sea, natural light and privacy at once. Lavender soap and shower gel, and Tea Rose shampoo are provided in dispensers. In the room you also get a small bag with some tiny useful tools and products: a natural mosquito repellent spray, a sunscreen, a tiny hairbrush, toothbrushes…little touches that make a difference to enjoy your stay and feel pampered. The terrace has two lovely sofas on the sides for the upstairs rooms, and one loveuse chair and a sofa for the downstair rooms. You are welcomed with a cocktail (lemonade with pink hymalayan salt), which you can enjoy by the beach. Breakfast: you have two sets with 4 sets of options to chose from each (from toasts to salad, rice, eggs, porridge fruit platter…). All in all, I enjoyed very much my stay. Cosy rooms, friendly, helpful and kind staff, very very lovely structure and location. The restaurants is open throughout the day, although, I have only enjoyed a selection of juices by the beach. The atm becomes very charming in the evening, with all the tiny lights and plants hanging on and around the tables. Could also rent scooters through the staff at a good rate. Special thanks to Mario and Nusan for their kindness and helpfulness. Fully recommended.
