The hotel is 2.5 hrs from the airport and relatively remote so come prepared for relaxation and solitude. The Medewi point beach is...

Our sheets had blood on them when we arrived & where not changed for another 9 nights! We were constantly asking for clean towels to be told they didn't have any dry ones available. The...

If you prefer the quiet life then Medewi Bay Retreat is the place for you. It has none of the hussle and bussle of Kuta, It is remote and beautiful. A 2 hour trip from the airport is an experience of a lifetime..... The Management and staff are just the most warm and welcoming people, you feel like part of...

We came to Medewi with an open mind. We had received a fax and took up the offer of very cheap accommodation. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff. We went to our very roomy studio accommodation. The retreat was quiet, well presented, and the people at the resort warm and welcoming. We arrived on Bali New Year...

A perfectly quiet spot without the hustle and bustle of street vendors, tourism and night clubs. Just had to learn to share with a few little creepy crawlies and a rooster crowing at 3am, but apart from that it was a perfect retreat for relaxation. The staff were always helpful and the service was excellent. A little shop on the...

We ate the first week, at the Palms Restaurant which is fine. Portions are a bit small comparatively but for the most part,...
