Stay far, far away...

Overall an awful place in an awful location with a dirty beach.
I came here on the last two nights of my honeymoon. I stayed in 2 other resorts in different parts of Bali and this was more than twice the price of the first two, however by far the worst option. The first thing they do when you arrive is sit you down and try to convince you that your room (suite) is basic and you don't have free breakfast but they will happily include it if you upgrade to a villa for a 'very special special' price of double what you paid already. This is disgraceful for any hotel, but to do so on my honeymoon in front of my new Wife for whom this was to be a treat is just gross. During our stay they tried to nickel and dime us both at all times and we ended up trying to do our best to spend the entire time away from St. Regis.
Overall it's not worth it, there are much nicer places on nicer beaches both in Bali and all over SE Asia with better service and better price.
The staff are attentive (overly so and at a cost for everything)
Breakfast is very good
Not as nice as the pictures suggest at all.
They try to rip you off for every penny. Everything you may expect to be included an another resort will include free, they will charge for, at insane rates.
Beach water is filthy. Trash in the water. No one swims.
Water activity gear is rented at stupid prices. About 1000% uplift on local rates next door.
