“Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel Again and Again”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We have been back twice since our last review (25th visit) on this hotel and we have not been disappointed with the whole holiday experience here.

We have had excellent times every visit over the last 18 years we have made many friends among the hotel management and staff from every department and we find that we look forward to coming back again and again just to renew our friendship with them and other repeat guest .

We get asked all the time as to why we don't try somewhere else while in Bali and the answer is simple we just love this place and its location the attention from all of the friendly staff and the truly relaxing atmosphere of this hotel.

Each year we meet up with many of the other repeat guest and find that their reason for returning each time is very similar to ours.

Some have ventured elsewhere to check the differences but soon come back with a nice but not as good story about their holiday at some other hotel.

We have checked out other venues in Bali also but for us we have made Kartika Plaza our second home and while we can still travel we doubt very much that we could find somewhere where we can relax with all the amenities the beautiful views, fantastic location and the great service,staff and atmosphere this hotel provides so it will always be Kartika for us.

Welcoming service, beachfront location, large swimming pool swim up bar with kiddies pool, lots of sun lounges well keep gardens and large surrounds, children play area and day center plus children activities.

Good spa and recreation facilities and gym.

Happy and funny recreation team

Good breakfast selection reasonable lunch and dinner prices in their restaurants with good selection all day cake and pastries selection and high tea .

Good restaurant venues

Clean and comfortable rooms with balconies

Rooms to suite most family needs

Villas for those who want something more or special for their holiday .

If you find you are not happy with some aspect of your holiday here you can make reception aware and the do all in their power to rectify the situation.

Over all we can say we and our family and many many of our friends and others who have been here on our recommendation have had a most enjoyable stay here.

Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel has every box ticked as far as we are concerned and we will continue to use and happily promote this venue so others can get to enjoy their holiday in Bali just as we have on many many occasions.

We really love this hotel.

Room Tip: We always request pool views rooms which also gives us some view of the ocean usually on the 2nd or...

We had an excellent family holiday at Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel. The staff are amazing and the resort is excellent. The rooms are just beautiful, modern and very spacious and the service you receive at the resort is fantastic, staff go out of their way to do everything for you. The buffet breakfast was great with many options available. The children really enjoyed their stay as well with lots of activities available to them including the amazing pool and kids club. The resort has direct access to the beach and is walking distance to all of the shopping and waterbom park but still feeling like you are away from all of the hustle and bustle We would highly recommend this resort to many people including couples and families and we will most definitely be back again.

The hotel is great; the ambiance fantastic and I especially enjoy breakfast time at Kartika. The rooms smell musty but having lived in Indonesia I know from personal experience that it is a fact of life because of the prevalent humidity. However, all-round Kartika delivers on that special holiday feel and the best thing is that it has large, quiet and private grounds, but when you step out onto the main road the hustle and bustle of Bali is complete. Best of both worlds. Staff are not as friendly as the normal in Bali. Don't know why because usually, Indonesians are very outgoing and friendly.Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Try and get a pool view.

wonderful hotel, great breakfast buffet with asian, europeen and american breakfast and many fresh fruits. The spa is wonderful, for balinesian prices a bit expensive, for me as a swiss girl very cheep ;) We had once a massage for two with some privat time in the bath tube in the garden. The room was very clean, also the pool and the whole hotel. The staff was very friendly. They have even there own doctor. When my boyfriend was ill, the receptionist gave us a big fruit basket and some nice words and they served my breakfast free on my room, because I had no time to go to the buffet. The doctor was really nice, as I can judge, she worked like a swiss doctor. I really recommend this hotel.

On arrival from the airport we were picked up by the hotel, from there the honeymoon got better and better. Flowers, cake and fruit was awaiting us in our room with flowers. Staff always friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. We managed to receive an invitation to the managers cocktail night which was a nice surprise. Rooms are spacious and were cleaned twice daily. Pools were amazing and direct beach access and close proximity to the shopping centre, waterbom park and other restaurants was a bonus. Amenities were second to none, luxury holiday. Buffet breakfast was more than you could ask for, an amazing holiday we will be back again.

This was our fourth trip to Bali. We booked the flight & Accommodation package in a Deluxe Room at Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel.

Upon arrival, we were offered a welcome drink at the Sunset Lounge while waiting for the staff to check us in. An hour or so later we finally got our room along with a ‘Welcome pack’ which includes an invitation to the Cocktails Party, vouchers and drink cards for keeping us waiting.

Our room located on the 2nd floor with garden/pool view however we could see the beach from the balcony. The room was spacious with everything you would expect from a 5 stars hotel.

The hotel is situated in a prime location, the beach is within the hotel premises, 5 minutes’ walk to the Discovery Shopping Mall, restaurants and the Waterbom Park among others attractions. A short cap ride will get you to the famous Kuta Market(if you cannot be bothered walking in the heat), Kuta Beach and the well-known Poppies Lanes.

The Buffet Breakfast was the biggest we’ve ever seen and definitely worth the extra money, they even had a pianist playing music throughout the whole session.

24hr Room Service and Front desk certainly was appreciated as when we arrived back from the night out at the wee hour in the morning, I felt safe to have the guards and staff there looking after us.

The Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel has many restaurants, however during the time we were there the Tepan Noodle Restaurant were going under renovation, which I was disappointed but understandable. We spend a lot of time at the Kul Kul Pool Bar(Pool bar), offer light snacks and Happy Hour was certainly made our stay extra special.

I would recommend this hotel to travellers who can afford the price of this hotel, it is definitely worth it. It is one which you have to stay at lease one-two night just for the experience.

This was our eighth stay at Kartika and it's still as good as ever. From check in to departure, and everything in between, the warmth and friendly efficiency of the staff is to be commended. We stayed for seven nights in an Ocean Front Room, the extra expense for this room category is worth it for the view alone. We love these rooms for the large balcony where we could enjoy a quite cuppa early in the morning or evening drinks whilst watching the beach activity at sunset.

Our family joined us for a special dinner at the hotel to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. After corresponding with the Hotel staff over several months, their prompt responses and helpful suggestions were of great assistance. In the end we decided to hold the birthday function at the Tepan Noodle Restaurant which is located near the waterfront. We were not disappointed with our choice - the food and service were exceptional and the staff did a wonderful job setting up a special table for our group and attending to our every need on the night in a gracious and efficient manner. We were pleasantly surprised with the cost of this event considering the quality of the food and beverages and the beachfront location - we felt we got exceptional value.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a full service hotel with a personal approach to service.
