"We arrived late at night and our first impression was one of disappointment, as the photos don't match the reality, but having said that, by the end of our stay (in the 2 bedroom villa), we were more positively inclined - the place grew on us. PROS: friendly helpful staff, clean, water cooler, large fridge, kettle, adequate breakfast, outdoor bathroom (a real plus in this hot, humid climate where indoor bathrooms can be quite manky), aircon in bedrooms, internet (albeit quite slow), handy location, quiet and safe. CONS: kitchen has no crockery (eg glasses, plates, teaspoons, etc), no aircon in living room, no mattress protector/overlay, grounds dry and dusty in many parts, lawn unmowed and gardens neglected. As another reviewer noted, it would not take much to lift this place to "excellent" with a bit of maintenance (eg painting scratch marks, fixing doors, replacing light globes, watering the grounds, etc) and providing things like more hooks/rails in the bathroom, luggage racks in the bedroom, basic kitchen items, etc. However, you have to compare it to what else is on offer in the area, rather than what you might expect from "very good" accommodation elsewhere, and thus I'm giving it a 4, rather than a 3, but it's certain not worth a 5. Kuta does not have a taxi service, so you have to walk down to the beach and back again (if hiring a motor bike or scooter is not for you), which we weren't aware of before we arrived. It might only be 20 mins each way, but when it's really hot and humid, you think twice about it. If you want to travel anywhere further afield you need to hire a car and driver. The Tourist Spa at the end of the street (on the main road) is good, as is the French Bakery next door to it. Plenty of mini-marts in the area, as well as a number of places to eat along the road to the beach. You could do a lot worse than stay here and, for the price, it was good value."
"We are a family of 4 so we had one of the 2 bedroom villas. Perfect for 4 of us. We had 2 bathrooms, both set partially outside which was lovely. The kitchen was also set outside and not many mozzies considering. There is a water cooler which stops the waste from loads of individual plastic bottles every day. I did buy some coils and set them in the bathrooms for the evening. Breakfast is ordered and delivered to your villa or you can have it by the pool. The choice is not big but there is something for everyone and it is delicious. There are only 4 villas so a really nice, quiet, family place. The staff are great, particularly Andy. They will help you to organise anything. We did a day trip snorkelling to Gili Nanggu which Andy organised and it was fabulous. You can walk to Kuta beach but the better beaches are accessed by car or scooter which the resort can organise. Shu Villas has a fabulous restaurant set up on the hills overlooking Kuta Lombok. We just asked for a car to take us up there one night for dinner. It is a 5 minute walk to the main street for warungs, bars, shops, ATM's and money changers. We had 5 nights and it was fabulous. We would definitely stay at Shu Villas again."
