mike and wayan are gracious and talented hosts who take genuine interest and stock in the activities and entertainment of their guests. the food was always wonderful, and "stuck to our ribs" throughout the day. there are veggie options, and good ones, because wayan doesn't eat meat. the rooms are incredible and the whole inn has an indonesian theme, which makes for a relaxed and happy stay. the inn overlooks one of the largest saguaro cactus forests in the sonoran desert, and the view is to die for. at sunset, the ridge of shale mountains turns bright orange and red, and the moon rises almost simultaneously. mike and wayan's hiking trail and restaurant suggestions were all wonderful, and their stories of life in the desert make for a lovely evening. it is common to see huge amounts of wildlife right off the back patio, including hummingbirds, quails, desert pigs (javalinas), sparrows, finches, and even owls. we also heard coyotes at night, far off, but beautiful. WE COULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS ENOUGH!
