Stayed at Suluban Cliff over a weekend (5-7 August 2011) with 4 of my friends and never wanted to leave.

For starts, the location is excellent - you enter through the main villa, that houses the communal dining and living area, from which you can get an unadulterated and absolutely breathtaking view of the sea. Then you can walk down and explore any of the individual rooms - comfortably furnished and extremely spacious, with a surprise outdoor bathtub in the master suite villa. For anyone concerned about their tech specs, the place has also got you covered - reliable Wi-fi, iPod docks in every room, cable channels etc. The infinity pool is obviously an absolute thrill, giving you a wide view of the horizon as you relax in the confines of the villa and really allowing you to soak in the tranquility of the stunning surroundings.

Besides the evident beauty of the villa, what really completed the stay was the stellar service. The villa manager, Made, is extremely accommodating and attentive to detail. He helped us plan our schedule for a short day trip and made necessary arrangements for a driver to accompany us. (The villa is relatively secluded, though no complaints there as it really contributes to the exclusively tranquil and private experience.) Any requests we had were always answered. We received prompt service at all times, rooms were kept very neat and meals were prepared and served according to our pace.

Speaking of which, the food here is absolutely top-notch. Highest compliments to the chef - he really made our weekend with his home cooked meals. Very authentic. Definitely recommend the Balinese rice platter and seafood platter, and adopting a more traditional route with breakfast (mie goreng/fried rice) instead of the continental style one. Though regardless of what is ordered I'm sure it's bound to be a treat.

Suluban cliff is a great place for big families or groups of friends and I definitely will be back, and hopefully next time for a long stay to completely bliss out. Friends who couldn't make our recent trip but saw the photos were all extremely upset they couldn't go. The Balinese sunsets are extremely gorgeous and this is probably one of the best places to watch it from.
