The Tanjung Benoa Beach Resort Bali
Ranked #13 of 26 Hotels in Tanjung Benoa
Reviewed 15 November 2009

Compared to the myriad of excellent and well located hotels in Benoa and Nusa Dua, the location of this hotel is a real problem. The hotel is divided from the (very unattractive) beach by a busy and noisy road. The pools are very small. In the evening, the beach is populated by wild dogs, who make it impossible to walk along the beach, as you could in other other hotels at the Nusa Dua beach. Staff are wonderful, as everywhere in Bali, and the food is good. But this does not make your beach holiday a good and relaxing one. Brief: Leave this place to conference visitors and tour travellers. Spend 20 percent more and enjoy the paradise elsewhere.

We stayed here for 12 nights in August. The staff were amazing, super friendly and helpful. We had a nice room, conveniently located beside the pool! There is a beach across the road but in my opinion not usable as a sunbathing/swimming spot.

The hotel is located at the end of the peninsula, so it is not walking distance to any shoppping/bars etc. However a regular courtesy shuttle bus brings you to the Nusa Dua shopping centre, and also has free buses to the best beaches. Bluebird taxis are very cheap, so it is easy and cheap to get around. We quite often went to Kuta in the evenings for the restaurants and shopping.

We would happily stay here again! Enjoy

We stayed here for 4 nights in September 2009 in a deluxe pool room. We booked the spa package direct through the hotel and an additional night through wotif. The spa package was great value. On 2 of the days both my husband and I had a 2 hour spa treatment and the 3rd day we both had a 1 hour facial.
The staff there are fantastic!! We travelled with our 7 month old son and all the staff remembered his name and would come and say hi everyday. There is not many restaurants close by but the room service was a reasonable price. We didn't eat in the restaurants.
There are 2 pools. One on the other side of the road (the beach side) but we didn't use that one. The other pool is quite small but nice and has character. Not just a big oval or square!
Our deluxe pool room was fabulous. Big and roomy and the bathroom was very big too. It was great being on the lowest floor having our own small balcony that we could walk straight onto a bale (gazebo) and the pool. The hotel also has very nice gardens.

Stayed here for 6 nights in September. On arrival one of the concierge came to greet us and take our bags from the taxi. We went to reception to check in. We had arrived early (12:30pm) and was told that we wouldn't be able to get to our room until 14:00pm as that was the check in time. We were given cold towels and a nice fruity drink. Check in was very informative and the lady was very helpful. We were told we could use any of the facilities if we wished to do so and could leave our bags with the concierge. WE decided to drink a bintandg in reception and wait a little. But after about 30 mins, the lady told us our room was ready early which was nice surprise.
We got to our room and were very happy, it was extremely clean and also looked newly refurbished. We then went to explore the surroundings.
The pool is big enough for the amount of people who where there at the time. We had no problems finding somewhere to sit at any time of the day. The sun moves around a bit so during the afternoon if you like the sun, you should sit near the spa end as the sun is here all day. Towels are also free to use from the hotel at both pools.
Food wise, we ate in the Tao which was really nice Asian style food at a reasonable price. Its nice to sit inside or out as theres a nice breeze there most of the day and evening. As for breakfast, there is a huge choice from Asian style noodles, rice and the full English or American pancakes and eggs cooked to your liking. Along with salads, fruits, cold meats and cheese, cakes and pastries. The hotel also have some theme nices, one was a bbq with Balanese Dancing. There was a large buffet of salads, vegetables, noodles, rice, desserts etc and a free drink. As for the meats you could choose your fish from a selection and also they frehsly bbq'd some meats too. All you can eat! I think it was about £10-12 per person.
The hotel gardens are nice and well maintained and there is a business centre with internet for use (although we had trouble printing). Also a pool table, table tennis and mini football table, tennis, badminton free to use and the equipment is always there when you want it.
In the rooms there is a mini bar with drinks in and you get 2 small bottles of water per day free. The mini bar is reasonably priced. However, if you wish to save some cash then as you leave the hotel, if you turn left about 5 meters or so is a small shop that sells soft drinks, beers and snacks such as crisps and nuts. A small Bintang is 10,000 and large bottles are 18,0000. I think the hotel bar do small bottles for 24,000. Also large bottles of water here are also about 3,000.
If you turn right and walk along the road for 15-20 mins there are quite a fews shops, supermarkets and some places to eat and other big hotels with restaurants. Alternatively you can get a taxi from the hotel for about 30-35,000 to the Bali Collection or a free shuttle from the hotel (pending what time you want to go). There are lots of shops, departments stores and lots of places to eat, you're spoilt for choice! Its probably to far to walk, I would say it might take about 40 minutes? But a 10 minute taxi drive if that.
The beach outside the hotel by the second pool is a nice place to spend the afternoon and get the last days sunshine, with the breeze you don't realise how hot it is. Its not really a swimming beach due to the boats, but there is a large range of water sports if thats your thing. The hotel also organise boat trips if you're interested, although we didn't have time to do this, the prices looked quite reasonable. There are other places too along the way you could try if you wanted.
Also used the spa, which was a great deal. At about £35 for both myself and the OH, we had a body scrub, massage, spa bath, facial which was about 1.5 - 2 hrs long. They also have a happy hour for massages on the bales around the pool and beach for about 100,000.

I stayed at the Ramada Benoa for 10 nights in September 2009 and loved this resort.

The resort is located on Jalan Pratama - at the very far end of Tanjung Benoa (near the harbour). It is approximately 5kms from Nusa Dua which can be accessed by a short taxi ride or the free Bali Collection Shuttle bus which runs every hour.

This is a lovely hotel with beautiful Balinese architecture and gardens. It is an older style hotel which retains a charming atmosphere. The rooms are clean and modern and have the features you would expect of a 4 star resort.

Overall, I would rate this hotel as a very good 3.5 star resort. I enjoyed this resort more than some of the 4 & 5 star hotels I have stayed at in the Nusa Dua / Tanjung Benoa area. I found this resort to be extremely good value - including the food, laundry and room service.

The hotel is located over 3 levels and has 2 swimming pools, a tennis court and 3 restaurants. Whilst not located directly on the beach, the beach is literally on the other side of Jalan Pratama where the second lagoon style swimming pool is located (as is the Tao restaurant).

Tanjung Benoa is a quiet area which still retains a village atmosphere. It's a great area to walk around and you can easily access shops and restaurants along Jalan Pratama or enjoy a lovely beach walk for several kilometres.

There is a small shop next to the hotel which sells soft drinks etc and the closest Circle K (small convenience store) is a 10 minute walk away. Restaurants outside the resort are located a little further down and if you require it, most restaurants will provide free transport. There is a new art market shop and Coco Market (small supermarket) which has opened on Jalan Pratama (not far from the Kind Villa Resort).

The beach is used by numerous watersport operators who offer parasailing, jet skiing, banana boat rides, boats for hire and scuba diving. The use of jet skis and parasailing does tend to restrict the use of the beach for a large part of the day however, this did not bother me.

The beachside area of the resort has a lovely pool and there were always sunlounges available. There are several gazebos on the beachfront and a massage service is available. The sand was lovely and white and the water clear.

The resort also offers a free daily shuttle to lovely Geger Beach (it leaves at 9.30am and departs Geger Beach at 2pm and 4pm). You need to pay for the sunlounges at Geger beach and don't forget to take beach towels. Geger Beach is approximately 6kms from the resort and is where the St Regis Resort is located (south of the Nusa Dua beaches but before you get to the Bali Nikko). The beach is beautiful and calm and great to swim in. There are drinks and snacks available there.

The Ramada also has a free daily shuttle bus to Tuban (South Kuta) which leaves at 10.30am and departs Tuban at 5.30pm. They drop you off just of the main street - close to Discovery Shopping Centre and the Waterbom Park. (Kuta is less than a 10 minute walk away from Tuban). A taxi from the Ramada Benoa to Tuban should cost you approximately 70,000 - 80,000 rupiah if you get a Blue taxi who have reputable meters. A taxi from the airport to the Ramada (through the taxi service window) costs 105,000 rupiah.

I had a pool view room which had a king size bed, a writing desk, wardrobe with personal safe and a nice balcony. The rooms have been modernised in the past and were cleaned very well each day (this is often a problem in Bali, but not at this resort). The rooms are reasonably spacious (more spacious than the room I had at The Westin which cost more than double the Ramada) and the bathrooms have a good size shower (not the uncomfortable shower over bath like a lot of other places). The hotel supplies 2 bottles of drinking water every day.

The breakfasts were included in the room tariff and they had a good selection of fruit, cereals, pastries and cooked food. The hot food varied each day and there were some really nice dishes. I was never bored by the selection of food available. The room service was quite slow and the food tended to be bland and at times, was cold by the time it arrived. This was the only slight negative I experienced.

I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a Balinese style hotel with comfortable features and located in a quite location yet still accessible to Nusa Dua, the airport and Kuta etc. It's a friendly hotel with good staff and the hotel has a lot to offer.
