“Beautiful grounds & pool, great location”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Stayed here last year for 4 nights with my family at the end of a 2 week trip in Bali. Check in was quite lengthy, I had booked via email and paid for 1 night but the hotel were trying to charge me a slightly different amount. A bit frustrating as we were all hot and bothered after travelling for 2 hours from Ubud but the staff were friendly and polite and it was eventually sorted out.
The hotel lobby area is huge with a lovely view across the pool and grounds to the beach. Room was pretty ordinary although the hotel at the time were having many of their rooms renovated. Nothing wrong with the room just felt a bit outdated but everything clean and working. View wasn't anything special, grassed area with a few trees and a car park area. As there were renovations being carried out we were placed at the furthest room away from any work. While we appreciated not being too close to any construction noise I did feel like we were a really long distance from anything, especially if you forgot something while at the pool and also there seemed to be very few guests in this part of the hotel and it felt quite deserted at times.
Breakfast was a highlight, one of the best I've had in Bali. A huge selection of food, 2 separate egg stations so no long queues and a self service coffee machine so you could have a real latte, cappuccino etc with the press of a button. The breakfast area overlooked the pool and gardens and was a very pleasant spot to eat. The staff often gave my children a small bag of fish food to feed the huge koi fish in the ponds near the breakfast area. We didn't eat any at any of the other restaurants but did have drinks and pizza from the pool bar and they were all tasty and reasonably priced.
The pool area was good, always able to get a seat, lots of lounges. Towel counter was right near the pool and the staff there were always very helpful and chatty. The kids pool was good, a decent size and completely covered by a shade sail and was surrounded by sun lounges so you could easily supervise your kids in the pool. We didn't use the kids club but it was right next door to the pool area. Main pool was massive so you never felt too crowded and lots of seating at the pool bar.
The grounds of the hotel are beautifully and meticulously maintained, lush gardens, flowers, ponds etc everywhere throughout the hotel.
Location of the hotel is very good, just out of Kuta so not quite as busy, if you are going on foot I would walk down the beach path at the back, a more pleasant walk and no traffic and less hawkers. Lots of eateries and shops within walking distance, Discovery shopping mall is next door and has 2 huge souvenir type shops, a nice relief to shop in air conditioned comfort. Waterbom is about 5 minutes walk down the road and we also found a good laundry up a lane way just across the road from the hotel. Be careful crossing the road as it is very busy. At the front of the hotel near the there is a small group of drivers sitting there, we used a driver from there to get to the airport and a day trip to Padang Padang and they were quite reasonably priced and saves you walking further down the road.
This is a lovely hotel in a great location, staff are friendly and helpful. Only complaint would be having our room such a long distance from everything.

I have been coming here since 1995. I have seen many changes and improvements over the years but one thing remains the same, the impeccable service from all the staff. From the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave, you are treated like royalty.

I can't recommend a better place to stay in kuta.

Stayed here for 4 nights in June. On the plus side, the hotel is well located in Bali, right on Kuta beach and close to airport and very lively surroundings. food was quite good all through with lot of variety, property is nicely landscaped and maintained, staff was generally friendly and efficient.
However two incidents marred the stay. At check-in time, we had a problem because one of the two rooms booked by us had an extra bed for a child which are already prepaid with breakfast, but at the reception they were insisting they will charge us for it because the booking agent had not made the payment to the hotel. It took about half an hour of persuasion and explanation to convince them we had already paid for it and they should take it up with the agent and no way we were paying all over again. Secondly one of the rooms had bed bugs and my wife got badly bitten in the middle of the night. Rooms were changed for us and finally we were given an upgrade by Mr. Fabian and Mr. Oka to one of their better rooms in the hotel along with a late checkout, but it was a rather disconcerting experience nonetheless and not one I expected from such an expensive hotel. It just means the housekeeping did not check regularly for bedbugs in the rooms.
Overall mixed memories of the place.

Great hotel especially for families. Service very good, rooms just a little bit tired. Food and breakfast particularly good. Drinks and food geting a bit pricey but then all of Bali is getting that way. Grounds beautifully maintained. Staff have a can do and more attitude.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room high up without tree obstructions

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff were very friendly, beautiful landscaped gardens with a very big pool. Children's facilities looked good if your a family. It is right on the beach front in central Kuta, but is like an oasis inside.
