First off, the setting is fantastic. The hotel is secluded away down a serene little lane. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is a great option. Unfortunately, we like to explore and this hotel was way too out of the way for our taste. We ended up renting a scooter but it wouldn’t carry us up the very steep hill to get us into town (we are Americans but not the big kind). Because of that we felt very isolated. The menu options at the hotel are limited and there really isn’t much going on. We ended up staying one night then finding a hotel closer to the harbor where there was more activity. On the plus side, the staff was not super helpful but they were friendly. The rooms are as advertised, spacious, neat and clean. The pool was also very nice. WiFi was pretty weak but that’s common for that island. Astiti might be great for some travelers looking for lots of quiet time but just not good for us. Note there is construction happening next door so it’s constant hammering and sawing. Also note they don’t take credit/debit cards so if you didn’t pay online, bring cash.

Situated in a small village and with the drive through the jungle, it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere - yet only walking distance (approximately 700m) from Crystal Bay.
The resort is only about 5 months old, with the bungalows being very large, extremely comfortable and very clean. The staff are friendly and proactive at trying to make your stay a happy one.
Breakfast is more than adequate with 3 choices - American, Indonesian and "The Favourite" which includes a delicious banana pancake. The lunch/dinner menu is small but with enough choices, reasonable sized serves and cheap. Recommendations would be: Mie Goreng and Chicken with Mushrooms. Unfortunately the local beef fillet has a wonderful sauce but the meat is very tough.
The pool is of average size but there only being 5 bungalows, has more than enough room for everyone.
We would definitely stay here again. Thinking of returning in a couple of years to see how the gardens have progressed.

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable bungallows. Lot of facility to do, renting motorcycle. The restaurant is good, pancake is one of the best. The nature around the bungallows are amazing, Crystal Bay is about 5 minutes walk.

Don't be fooled or worried by the drive up to this place through the jungle. It looks very basic on the approach, but actually once you arrive everything js new. The inside of the bungalows is clean and comfortable and freshly made.

The pool was also nice and refreshing and the bathroom had plenty of hot water and an nice bath.

The restaurant was delicious, we ate there every night, albeit could get slow if everyone was eating at once. Very good value per night also.

Would stay again.

We spent here 3 nights in house bungalow nr.5 with view on pool. Big clean and very comfortable room,every day fresh towels and still water.We had reservation throw the booking.com breakfast was included you can choose of three types..english (eggs like you wish) ,indonesia (nasi goreng or mia goreng)or favourite(pancakes), all are with fresh fruit slices and juices and you can choose balinese coffe or tea.On the crystal beach is it ca 1 km,and they rent us for free bicycles,so was fast way on crystal beach.And hotel can also rent you for a small money scooter which they have right in hotel.Crystal beach is nice and on left side end are stairs into wood.... Go ahead the stairs and on the end of them you will be in the heaven, there is wonderful beach,where we was alone,not for swimming,it s too dangerous,but when you sit on the beach and wawes washing your feets you can enjoy the beauty of this place.
