This place remind me of Permai Rainforest Sarawak, only minus the luxury and private sanctuary. Nestled between Mount Agung and the beach, YTL Tembok Bali simply ignite my heart, body and soul effortlessly.

Spacious, private balcony, clean and I've noticed that beautiful wood decor with detailing of exotic concepts around the room. There are altogether 27 Kamar rooms, 2 Suites (Purnama & Surya) and 2 Villas (Baruna & Samudra).

Dinner was served from 7.00pm -1030pm, food was freshly prepared by local Chef name Made. We were very impressed with the staff that served us especially Hendra and Ari. Their attentiveness is definitely brings value to YTL. Not only they are accommodating but they actually give some tips or two about what to order and to do around here. They are well mannered and always ensure that we are comfortable plus quick to response from our body language itself.
The presentation of the food justify the taste of the food. Excellent taste and 3 full yet healthy course meals simply guaranteed our satisfaction.
After dinner, we just chilled by the poolside and enjoyed the picturesque view where candlelight glowing in the night and the sound the wave accompany us on this peaceful night. Stars shinning bright and I wished I could freeze this moment because it was beautiful and perfect. Star light gazing was a wonderful experience.infact it is one of the innovate spa treatment where we just need to lie on the floating bed and enjoyed the scenery under the sea of stars. caught 2 magnificent shooting stars on separate timing that night...awwwww...:) Dream a little dream :) perfect way to end the night.
|hrrmm...wish i could own this place...ahaks|
