Most of the people who rated the hotel highly were Indonesian themselves, making it a hot spot for not just tourists, but locals too.

The most beautiful part of the hotel is what they call a "three-villa treehouse," which sits on a cliff and has a beautiful view of the Indian Ocean.

While most of the other villas are $900 a night, the treehouse villas clock in at a hefty $6,000. The price includes a mini bar refill, free food and access to yoga and meditation classes.

The meditation exercises will come in handy to keep you calm when it's time to check out of the beautiful hotel and put an end to your dream vacation.
