While one of my favorite stories from my trip to Bali was getting into a fight with the owner of this "meditation retreat," I would not recommend repeating the experience. The place was basically empty when we got there yet they told us only one room was available - we later realized that was the most expensive one. When we decided to leave one night early because we didn't like it there (giving them 24 hours notice), they reacted horribly and forced us to pay.
The food was good but overpriced and while the menu was large, most of the items on it were not available. The same went for the yoga and meditation. We were paying to be at a retreat but once we checked in they let us know they weren't offering most of what they advertise.
At dinner one night, we asked for butter and the guy was not only rude about it, he made us pay extra. For butter. The woman was nice at times but the male owner was condescending and horrible. For a "peaceful" place, he had a really unnerving energy. Also, there were lots of bugs and rodents in the rooms at night.
I think you get the gist, but we really hated this place.
