“Royal get it right again....intimate, great service, great layout for families.”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

If you have read any of my other reviews, you might guess that we own timeshare with Royal Beach Resorts. We do. When on holiday in Bali for the fourth time, with our then 2 yo daughter, my husband organized to go to the spiel, and get a free week in Bali. Well, now she is 10, and has a 7 year old brother, and we have converted to points and have the equivalent of 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom villa. Useable at any of the resorts in south east Asia, and bankable for a couple of years, or we can swap for other resorts. The annual maintenance is steep. The plus is that it makes us take relaxing holidays and it Is the best style of holidaying with kids, which is why we did it. All the Royal resorts in Bali are smaller, intimate, with various styles of accommodation, from 2-3 br villas to hotel rooms. I even recall giving feedback at some point that they should get a resort in Sanur. Bingo. They bought and renovated a cute little place, tucked behind buildings on the bypass. Cleverly positioned fountains disguise the traffic noise, which, in Bali tends to quiet down after 8-9pm. The pool is right out front of the building, and the restaurant is the time we stayed, tucked behind it at the rear of the block. Sunken bar off the pool. It really was perfect for a family with kids. Can see them from the rooms easily, great pool, as always great personal staff, and spotless. Once you get used to crossing the bypass, you can walk to the beachfront or the Jalan Tamblingan restaurant and bar strip. The food is great, of course, and not as cheap as outside. But how nice to dine a few steps away from your peacefully sleeping kids, from where you can see the door to your self contained villa, at a table in front of the pool, in the moonlight, the fountains playing, the fragrance of frangipani in the warm air....Bliss.

Room Tip: Ask for what you need, hotel room, one or two bedroom apartment, etc. 2 bedroom villas on bottom fl...

This was our second visit to Bali and the first time at this resort. Good rooms and facilities but being on the main road was a bit of a shock although we really didn't notice the traffic that much. The staff were typically Balinese always smiling, helpful and friendly and we could not have asked for more. The food was good and an excellent selection suitable for all, we ate there every day but never tired of the choice and quality of the food all freshly cooked to order.
We walked to the beach once but it was a bit far for a couple of oldies, taxis are available and good value, we didn't bother again as the pool was more than adequate and there was so much else to do. Hiring the resort car and driver was great value and added extra local knowledge to the trips.
We could not fault the resort or the staff, a great stay thank you all.

My husband & I stayed here from 16th to 23rd June & absolutely loved it! the Hotel was clean, pool sparkling, Restaurant food delicious, Spa treatments heavenly, but most of all it was the wonderful, friendly staff that made our holiday so enjoyable! All the staff deserve commendation but some of the special ones that stood out to us were Putu, Dede,Rahwee, Alit, Lila, Widi, Angie,Sabrina,Mini,Nonik & my extra special Spa girl with the magic massage hands, Liya.We would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel to others & definately look forward to returning in the future.Thanks again to all the wonderful staff that made our holiday so enjoyable! Kind regards, Lesley & Paul Castle.

Stayed here from 26 May to 9 June. This was our 2nd time & wouldn't hesitate to stay again. I agree with other reviews. Rooms are good, clean, great facilities. Small resort which makes it so intimate. Within a couple of days all the staff were calling us by our names. They looked after us so well. Chef is great, kitchen cleanliness could not be faulted.
Although not on beach, we enjoyed our walk there. Should take about 10 mins however so much to stop at on way, often took us an enjoyable hour.
