I have nothing but positive feedback regarding our stay at Rock n Reef. It was located in the most stunning spot. Everyone at home was so jealous of my photos I kept posting. Staff were absolutely lovely and so extremely helpful in recommending things for us to do and go. Breakfast at Rock n Reef was the best we had on our entire trip, I had the omelette every single day. I have already recommended Bali Retreats and Rock n Reef to many of my friends and family. It was such a positive experience, from the initial enquiry and organising/booking the holiday, to getting there from the airport and our accommodation. It was jaw dropping complete tropical paradise.
I will definitely use you to book again Thanks for everything.

We loved our stay at the Rock n Reef, it was such a beautiful location being right on the beach front on the side of the cliff, the walk up was good exercise each day when we weren't surfing!
The staff were great, the food was excellent, we really loved the full generous breakfasts they served up and could sit back and enjoy while looking at the surf.
The Buddha Soul was great for food and drinks, we also ventured to crispy pig at a little local type joint, that was pretty good and the single fin was fun for a couple of drinks.

A wonderful place to stay on Impossibles reef. Stunning scenery, beautiful rooms and gorgeous staff. My husband and I stayed at Rock'n Reef for three nights in August; it ended up being our favourite stop on our journey around the Bukit. The hotel is tastefully decorated and quiet: just the sound of the waves at night! The kitchen is fantastic with beautiful French and Balinese food: ask the staff for anything you need, they are so helpful. Best of all is how you feel like the beach in front is your own. You can lie on the sunloungers and then just walk down the little stairs and have a dip in the sea! Perfect for a surf at Padang.
Tripadvisor comment Sept 2011

My Husband and I have just returned from a trip to Bali with 2 other couples to celebrate my 30th Birthday. we were lucky enough to have spent 3 nights of our stay at rock'n reef. This place takes your breath away. The views from the property are something from a post card and if you are a surfer you will not belive the view of 3 of the greatest surf spots in the world. The place is beautiful and relaxing and a great place to watch the sunset over the water. We spent our time in the Padang room and another couple in the big rock room. The villas are all unique and have been built with good energy. Small touches like shell lights, rock shelves, lime stone clad walls and amazing natural teak tree trunks make the villas truly unique. I would call them naturally luxurious.
