“Good place to stay if catching a boat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Only stayed here one night as we were catching a boat across to the Gili islands in the morning. Arrived very late at night and staff were helpful and accommodating. Room was nice, good size, good garden bathroom, nice hot shower. Breakfast was ok, not fantastic. Wouldn't go to padang bai for the beach - but for activities and a base from which to get a boat it's great.

The garden bungalow we stayed in was very quiet, modern and clean. The staff was somewhat helpful, though I got the runaround trying to break a large bill (bar sent me to front desk, who sent me to bar). It is across the street from the beach, and the small bay has a nice view. It is only a few doors down from the GiliCat office, and there are plenty of restaurants on the street with a variety of food. We were only here one night, and only to catch the fast boat in the morning, but I wish we had more time to look around a bit. If you need to stay in Padang Bai, this is certainly a great place to do so.

Room Tip: The garden bungalows are very nice.

Stayed at the hotel for three nights and it was really nice. You could easily forget time and place.
If you like snorkeling or diving you're defiantly at the right place. Sadly, the beaches at that bay were not really nice because of littering and many beach sellers.
The breakfast was really great and had a huge variety. The restaurant has so many fresh seafood dishes, which were great. We'd come back!

We stumbled across this little gem. Really enjoyed the peaceful environment and the happy and helpful staff. The cleans were lovely and very welcoming. There was a nice pool area although this wasn't always in the sun, which is a shame. Close to beach and port. Highly recommended.

We spent one night here in July 2014 en route to the Gili Islands. We arrived very late due to plane delays but the 24 hour night staff were very helpful.

The room had an en suite and two beds. It was clean and secure.
Breakfast was efficiently served at the simple poolside restaurant.

We stayed here with a family with 2 kids aged 6 and 10. They have a large room which easily can accomodate 2 extra beds, which is good. The room is clean and the hotel area garden is tidy and has a cozy atmosphere. Lots of mosquito's though.
Furthermore the breakfast buffet is great with eggs and pancakes to order at your whishes, donuts and really fresh bread and rolls.
The cons are the swimming pool which is frequently closed in the afternoon for diving instructions and the shower which provides warm water for a very short time. Lastly the wifi signal is weak and slow and you need to log in everytime you loose the connection. And I think using vouchers for towels and breakfast does not befit a hotel in this price range.

The small village of Padang Bai has proven to be a well situated location to discover east Bali. Invest in the garden bungalow at Padang Bai Beach Resort/Absolute Scuba and you will be well saitisfied. Clean and nicely decorated rooms with an outside bathroom and little yard. Breakfast is OK, fresh fruit, buns, eggs and pancakes to order. Nice pool which is totally a plus considering the roughness of the sea. Great diving and snorkelling at Jepun (challenging due to currents).
Cocktails at Happy Hour reasonably priced if you take the local alcohol option which is absolutely fine. Great pizza, too.

Room Tip: Garden Bungalow!
