“Great location and still quiet.”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

This was my fourth time to Bali but Discovery Kartika Hotel was in a very convenient location. Since we, my husband and I were planning to veg out this holiday, the hotel was in a good location for that plus the shopping center located right next to the hotel made it nice for us to go shopping and dine out as well.

Room Tip: We stayed at the garden front rooms, very quiet and convenient but if you want to go out to the pool...

This was our 2nd trip staying with the Kartika as part of our Wakatobi dive trips. The pool bar is great. We spent several evenings there. The dinner buffets are OK but no bargain. The rooms were clean and quiet.
The location on the beach is really hard to beat. Beautiful views and close to whatever you want to do.

We stayed in Kartika Plaza after returning from the diving trip. We found in the hotel exactly what we were looking for. The hotel was very clean, bed was big and comfy. The pool with the pool bar was great and that's basically where we stayed the whole day. We did not try hotel restaurants as we prefered eating out except for the pool bar and breakfast restaurant. For breakfast the selection was really wide accommodating breakfast habits of everyone - ranging from soup, dumplings and sushi for Asians to freshly made eggs/omelets, great selection of fruits and sweets and surprisingly good coffee. Hotel stuff was attentive though sometimes just keep in mind that in Bali everything takes time. I enjoyed my stay in this hotel very much and recommend it to everybody. The hotel is directly on the beach and the main road also offers wide selection of restaurants, local stores and neighbours a shopping mall.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms in the right wing facing some dance club (tac tac house music beats....)

Right on the beach next door to Kartika Plaza and mall. Lots of restaurants and tourist gift shops nearby. Rooms were comfortable. We took rooms a bit further back given the reviews of noise in ocean front rooms and it was very quiet. It could also be because we were there at low season. There was a conference going on but it was quiet.
Nice swim up bar. Good jogging along walkway on the beach.

Room Tip: It would have been nice to have ocean view rooms so you can see sunset from your own porch but we av...

7 night stay for a combination of work travel plus a bit of downtime. Arrived after too many hours of travel to a lost reservation. Hotel staff were very friendly and thankfully we had our confirmation email otherwise we may have been out looking for another hotel. Eventually they shuffled everything around to a night in an upgraded ocean front suite. There were further administrative issues that plagued the remainder of our stay there. Everyone was very friendly, but issues took days to solve and the lack of problem-solving really put a dark cloud over our whole time there.
I would say the series of mishaps that we encountered were unusual or bad luck and that the average visitor won't encounter them, but if you do steel yourself for days of frustration.

On the positive side:
-close to airport (if that's what you need)
-lovely pool and gardens
-sincerely friendly staff

Points to consider:
- off of the busy, noisy, dirty and chaotic main strip in Kuta. Maybe this is what you're into? Maybe it won't be.
- it's a busy hotel with lots of happy (and sometimes drunk + loud) guests. It's not a chill-out spot at all
- wifi is really spotty in either wing of the hotel if you're out from the central area

This was our fourth consecutive year staying at The Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel. It is a beautiful resort that still maintains a Traditional Balinese outlook. The property is beautifully maintained, the gardens, rooms and surrounds are all kept in excellent repair and maintained on a daily basis. The best part about this property are the Staff - they are friendly, helpful and cannot do enough to make your stay comfortable. We have stayed at other properties in Bali but find this one is our favourite and we will continue to visit each year. We made several suggestions whilst we were there and were happy to discover Management had discussed some of the suggestions and were considering implementing them. I do think it is time for an upgrade on the swim up pool bar but that is all that needs improving. A truly wonderful place to stay!

Room Tip: The Ocean Facing rooms have a lovely outlook of the pool and the ocean.
