Very similarity I enjoyed Kubernetes (on Google Cloud). Some config, a docker container and my service was rock solid. All updates to the underlying systems were 100% automated, and I could literally forget about the service and it would just do it's thing.
Sadly k8s on every other provider infra was, well garbage, if I wanted to manage my own fronted nginx server I could just set stuff up directly (and yes when I checked only GKE had managed well documented, easily configurable load balancing)
Curious to hear that. At my workplace we have a mix of GKE on Google Cloud and on premises. Both work like a charm.
