Hotel in a good location, close to shopping and dining experiences. Beds very comfortable, very high off the ground. Prices are a bit on the steep side. Great breakfast spread - staff helpful and polite.More
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
At less than $400/week this hotel is absolutely brilliant.
Great location for the beach and shops with a short walk to the more lively bars.
Brilliant food in the on site Italian restaurant and a very reasonable breakfast buffet included.
Two good sized pools which were not to busy.
In all a great stay and I'd come back again :-)

I stayed for a week with a friend and as I like a firm bed - it was perfect sleeping every night. Some people may have trouble getting onto the beds they are on a raised platform - I felt like a queen. Lovely and quiet room facing the pool/gardens and a view of one of the attractions at Water Bomb Park lol. The breakfast was a good buffet selection of western and asian foods to cater for most people. The staff were helpful and friendly - when they weren't run off their feet, so busy all the time. The drinks were a bit pricy for Bali but not too over the top and I suppose you pay a little extra for the visual appeal of them - great Bar Staff make great cocktails. I was a little disappointed not to be able to use the Adults only pool & spa area. It was over looked by the restaurant and the street was always busy and noise transferred through (Kuta Square) so not that relaxing. The Spa was not full the whole time we were there and in fact a platform of some sort intruded into pool itself. Using the pool was not encouraged as there where only two recliners both without padding and both squashed into spaces beside draped (for a wedding type of thing) tables around the pool. We met some people who complained about little things - teaspoons and marked china but felt this was so minor why let it spoil your holiday, ask for a clean cup and a teaspoon. The restaurant staff were always happy to assist with that friendly Bali smile. The rooms where clean and would have been top standard when the hotel was built, so for the price we paid I certainly had no complaints about them. The location of the hotel, being right in the middle of Kuta was great - restaurants all around, supermaket/department store about 50m from your front door. All in all - a fantastic stay (not long enough :D)
Dear Joanne F
Thank you for your extensive review of your stay at our hotel on Trip Advisor.
We really appreciate your time spent for this complete positive review....
Ramayana Resort & Spa is indeed located in the center of everything in Kuta, so close to all the interesting shops, restaurants and cafes....and it is only a 4 minutes walk to the beach, where you can enjoy glorious sunsets...
We have two swimming pools where our guests can relax and enjoy cold tropical drinks or the famous Bintang beers..where you also can order meals or light snacks from our restaurants.
We do look forward to welcoming you and your friends to Bali and of course to Ramayana Resort & Spa in the future.
Thank you again and with best regards

While on a longer trip to Singapore with a friend, we decided to jet down to Bali for a couple days. We booked our airfare and hotel about 5 days ahead of time, but still got a wonderful price on this amazing resort!
We took a taxi from the airport, which was about a 20 min ride. Having never been to Bali I was a little concerned about the location and safety of our hotel. However, once the taxi entered Kuta, a high tourist area, I was comfortable. As the taxi pulled into the hotel, I was actually surprised. It was gorgeous! The lobby was a beautiful open air sitting area and the staff were super friendly. As we were checking in, a nice woman appeared with our "welcome drinks" (which were delicious.)
We were escorted up to our room and it was also lovely. We really wanted to stay somewhere that was a little more traditional than, say, a Sheraton or some large chain hotel. This did not disappoint. The room had traditional look furniture, with several comforts that we appreciated (like air conditioning and cable TV).
There is only 1 minor complaint I have: The power in the room is awarded when you place your room key card in the slot as you enter the room. When you leave for the day, you must take your key with you, which means there is no power while you're away. I.e. no air conditioning. So upon returning at the end of the day, the room was pretty stuffy- but it cooled down fairly quickly.
We ate at the hotel restaurant each morning, and 1 lunch. The breakfast buffet was fantastic! It had everything! There were more traditional "American" type breakfast food, which I appreciated, like pancakes, cereal, eggs, etc. And they also had several things, I was not used to but tried and enjoyed like congee, Indonesian rice dishes, and noodles. The lunch we had at the hotel restaurant was also super delicious!!
Loved this resort, and if I ever return to Bali, I would make Ramayana my first choice!
