Pleasant plc to stay with frensPosted Sep 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Reasonably priced and pleasant stay for a group of frens whos there for a getaway. There are however no amenities ard the resort so you would have to rent a car to travel out.

Superb Boutique Resort in Jimbaran BaliPosted Sep 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
When we first arrived at the Gending Kedis Resort we were greeted like VIPs and shown to our villa. To say that we were gob-smacked would be an understatement! Our three bed villa was unbelievable with its own huge pool and all the room needed to set up home. Probably one of the best 'hotel rooms' we have stayed in. All the staff were so eager to help and please, admittedly sometimes in a slightly hap-hazard way, but that only added to the charm. There'd was a shuttle bus available wherever we wanted to go and be picked up made the location being 5 minutes from Jimbaran Bay not an issue. If we had to be picky, the hotel,staff could be slightly better informed at some of the local knowledge but that was he only slight downside. Great four nights and would definitely recommend.

Honest opinionPosted Aug 18, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Upkeep, stairs
Tired and in need of renovation. In 4 short days we had blocked toilet and broken locks. You need to be a gymnast to get out of the villa's pool. Also, not sure if the extensive steep stairs throughout the complex is mentioned in the website. Only saving grace is the friendliness of the staff, although some inexperienced.

Wonderful for group of friends/relativesPosted Jul 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
Gending is a super place for a sizable group of friends/relatives. We reserved a number of the larger and mid-sized villas for three days before a wedding that was to take place elsewhere. Each room within a villa has sufficient privacy and is much larger than your average villa room; and each villa is like a mini-hotel, complete with large living room, small kitchen (which we barely used), and large private pool. The pools for the 4-bedroom villas are large enough that 20 or so of us could have a pool party at one villa's pool. We also had a welcome dinner at Gending for about 40 people. The staff and owner were extremely helpful and accommodating. The only downside to Gending is that it is a long walk or short drive to Jimbaran. Gending tried hard to make up for its location by offering us free rides into town whenever we wanted. This made it fairly easy to get to town to do laundry, get massages, go to restaurants, shop, etc. Excellent place for a large group to gather and have fun.

Amazing hotel for wedding groupPosted Jul 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed at Gending Kedis with our entire group of wedding guests prior to our wedding. We also held our rehersal dinner there. The staff was amazinging attentive and made our stay wonderful. The villas are huge and amazing, great for groups. We loved the rooms, spa, and dining, but the staff truely made our stay! The only downside is that you need to take the hotel shuttle to the beach, but its free of charge so not a huge deal.

Fantastic accomodationPosted Jul 8, 2013
The staff were lovely, every one we encountered went out of their way to assist and were warm and friendly. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend this accomodation. The shuttle service to and fro was always ready and we never had to wait for transport.

Highly recommended for Physically Able TravelersPosted Mar 6, 2013
Pros: The Privacy of the Villa and the service
Cons: The Stairs and the dodgy rubbish removal
Location: Beautiful surroundings, great for a quiet getaway and only a 25min taxi ride to the action of Kuta
The Gending Kedis is a wonderful place to stay. The staff were all VERY friendly and helpful, they all made an effort to remember both mine and my wife's names (even the gardeners knew our names and said hello every time we passed). We stayed in a One Bedroom Pool Villa (Primia 1) and the room was superb, comfy bed, Kitchen, generous clean pool, large clean bathroom and despite the fact that it was toted as one bedroom, there was a second smaller bedroom upstairs with its own en-suite. This hotel however may not be suitable to the less physically able (elderly or physically disabled people) as it is built on a very steep slope and many of the villas are down the bottom meaning an arduous climb up perhaps 100 -120 stairs to get up to the restaurant or reception, and given the humidity this equals a bit of a sweaty breakfast! I was a little disappointed on the third morning, whilst swimming in the pool i looked over the edge into the creek bed about 9m below and saw our airline luggage tags and other rubbish that was clearly ours, the cleaning staff had obviously just emptied the bin from our room straight over the side! The hotel shuttle will take you anywhere in the Jimbaran area but expect to catch a taxi if you want to go anywhere else as it is too far to walk anywhere. Taxi to Kuta cost us roughly $5 and Nusa roughly $7 on the meter but expect to pay a couple of dollars more to get back at night when the taxis don't use the meters. Overall though, This is a FANTASTIC hotel

Relaxing at Gending Kadis.Posted Oct 22, 2012
Pros: Nothing was ever too hard.
Cons: No ladder in our villa's swimming pool. That was a big let down. It was hard even for myself to get in and out of the pool, worse for my husband.
Location: Very quiet and great for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Legian.
The villa was excellent, all staff were courtious, friendly and helpful. The car service they provided to the money changer, supermarket and the beach was welcomed. We were thrilled with the villa and nothing being too big a problem from when we first arrived. There were so many steps and my husband having two bad knees was unable to climb them, so when we saw them, on the way to our room, we explained that we couldn't possible use the steps for our entire stay. We were given a room closer, with three steps, immediately and it was not a big deal to change our room even though it was a two room villa (we had booked a one room villa). So we give an outstanding and excellence to 'Gending Kadis' in Jimbaran.

An amazing placePosted Oct 9, 2012
Pros: The extra care they gave us
Location: Location is peaceful
My daughter had an accident and broke her collarbone and had surgery. The hotel went the extra mile. they put us in a Villa at no extra cost that had no stairs to one room as she also hurt her knee. They transported me and my6 husband and son to the hospital and back at no extra cost and let us stay in the villa until 6.30 pm until we had to go to the airport. The staff was kind all asking after her and in general were very very helpfull. All was done at no extra cost. They were amazing. They even sent breakfast to the hospital.

Outstanding staffPosted Sep 12, 2012
Pros: * The staff. * The size of the rooms & the villas
Cons: * Some maintenance needed in certain parts of the villa. * Would have been nice to have some fans in the bedrooms.
Location: Good. Not that far from the centre of Jimbaran. The location was pretty quiet & suited our young family well.
We stayed 6 days a Gending Kedis. The staff were wonderful with our children who are aged 3 & 16 months. They provided a cot for our little boy free of charge. They showered our children with attention. My little girl did not want to come home. The pool in the villa was wonderful. My little girl also loved swimming in the main pool & it was often hard to get her out of the pool. I especially have to thank Susi & Widi for the attention & care that they provided to us & our children. They also provided us with a late check out as we had a flight home late in the evening. The food at the restaurant was also good. They had a good range of food suitable for little children.
