Reviewed 16 April 2014

First time here and found it very clean, tidy. Staff were excellent, as always in bali friendly. Room was modern and a good size with free mini bar. Sadly my only fault is no seats on any balconies so you can't sit out there with drink and soak up the sun. Only o short cab ride from kuta $3
If your looking for a clean, quiet, friendly, good restaurant and bar at a reasonable price this is it. 9/10 (if seat on balconies 10/10

We stayed at the fontana for 7 nights. Location for us was okay as we wanted to be away from the busy streets, it's only a $1-$2 taxi ride to get to kuta or seminyak and taxis are everywhere so no troubles getting around (we highly recommend bluebird taxi as they use meters).

The staff at the fontana were friendly but had limited English at times.
The rooms were a little on the small side for a deluxe but were tidy and clean.
The buffet breakfast had a good range but unfortunately the food wasn't kept in heated trays so was mostly cold.
The egg and pancake stations were excellent. The eggs were cooked to perfection!
The hotel offered a "free" mini bar, however quite often they forgot items. The grounds and pool area was very nice, however they only had 6 sun beds in a small area which made it less enjoyable with having nowhere to sit after a swim.
The sunny cafe 16 is on site and is open 24 hours.
The selection there is quite good especially the tarts!
The service there was very poor on all of the occasions we went there which we found frustrating as a service fee is added to your bill.
The hotel also offers free wifi which was excellent and accessible from your room, the cafe and the pool.
Overall we had an enjoyable stay and it's definitely great value for money, but there were just a few things we would like to see change to make our stay excellent and for us to return!

We booked Fontana for just two nights before flying home because it was very reasonably priced and is conveniently close to the airport: we paid about $4 to for a taxi. We were also pleasantly by how attractive this hotel is. The rooms are a little small, but clean and the shower is incredible, plus the mini bar is FREE! The breakfast was outstanding, I especially recommend the made-to-order pancakes. The restaurant is nice with mid-range prices and the pool is set in a lovely garden, it feels private and is beautiful. It's a little far from the bars and restaurants of Kuta but they provide a free shuttle into Kuta every hour (between 9am and 9pm) and it's less than $3 in a taxi back. The staff are also very friendly and always willing to help.
Overall I'd definitely recommend Fontana.

For a newly build hotel, I can say..WOW !!!

I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights during Silence Day... They changed the Hotel Lobby, Lounge, and Restaurant into High Class Club. Recommended for you who wants to set some event in this hotel.
Have 3 floors, I stayed on 1st floor.
Just like said on the title...yes it was a very artistic hotel, they mixed wood architecture and nature with modern lifestyle, result? Not only you'll get a calm place to stay to relieved all your stresses and exhaustion, but the ambience will really spoiled you away and make you feel don’t want to leave the hotel.

Food? They have Portabella Bistro, still there you can find modern-wood architecture, and surely it has the best breakfast bacon and sausage.

For me, I prefer to have some food and beverages at the cafe, "Sunny 16 Cafe", right next the Portabella, either at night or day, it feels like eating and sitting in my own private dining-room.

For the room, i can say its cool, but most importantly, it has clean and far from noise, so u can have a quality sleep there.

For the service, same like other Bali's Hotel hospitality, its good, and surely still need a lot of improvement, since its still new.

So the conclusion is, yes its a newly built hotel, and still so many things they should improve, especially the service, its not that they have a bad service, but average for a hotel with a very cool and artistic place to stay.

Room Tip: choose the top floor :)

We stayed here for just the one night and found it to be very good.
The beds were comfortable, the pool was nice and refreshing.
We didn't try the food here as breakfast wasn't included in the price.

Staff were friendly and helpful except for one of the guys who was quite pushy trying to get us to order drinks while we were in the pool.

Otherwise, this was a great cheap place to stay.

I recently had the requirement to lay over in Bali for 2 nights. I have been many times before so I am aware of the standards and knew what to expect.

I carefully researched and took the top rated 4* hotel on Tripadvisor in the Kuta area. BIG MISTAKE. I will list some facts.

1. The hotel charges $25 for a one way airport transfer. I took this as the airport taxi drivers in Bali are not to the best and the last thing I wanted after a 12 hour flights was to be ripped off to drive 1km.

The hotel driver, was not employed by the hotel. Just a local transport company. He was late, was not allowed to pull up with the other drivers at the arrival area, and then did not know where the hotel was.

2. We pulled up at the hotel, and there was no cool drink, no towel, just blaring football from a huge TV - in BALI! Honeymooners - beware. The footbal seemed to be a permanent fixture as when I checked out early the next day it was still going.

3. The room had no bath.

4. The room had no bin.

5. The room was dirty.

6. The room had no do not disturb sign (cue constant disturbances)

7. The A/C did not work properly

8. The corridor was incredibly echoey and noisy and this was heard in the room - really unpleasant.

9. One of the gimmicks included with this hotel is a free mini bar - let me clarify, this means 1x can of soda, 1x small kit kat. That's not a mini bar.

10. The pool - is TINY

11. The pool is in shade nearly all day

12. There are no where near enough beds, in fact dont bother trying to get one unless you are up at 4 am.

13. The hotel is on a dirty back street, with no grounds.

I will be objective - this hotel was cheap, but it's not 4* and it's by no means even close to many of the other hotels in Kuta / Tuban. The breakfast was also good. (The one saving grace).

Room Tip: Request one miles away from the elevator and with a balcony.

Me and my SO stayed here for only 2 days after escaping the hectic legian area. We decided to stay here after reading reviews on tripadvisor.
The hotel staff is very friendly, and the hotel facility is good. It provides everything you need so you don't have to go outside, so it's good after a few days of traveling around the island. The room is decent, the bathroom black tile is nice but yes, like what everyone said, it's quite slippery.
But the best part is the breakfast buffet, the food is very delicious compared to other hotel buffet.
I'm planning a prolonged stay in this hotel in my next holiday, just to relaxed and use the pool and fitness area to get back in shape. A reconditioning we called it in my good old high school basketball day. But it will be a challenge with the good food they serve.
