“Old Bali traditional rooms. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Just checked in last night. Will update again later. We stayed in the old section of the hotel at the back of the resort. The view from the balcony is incredibly Bali. You can see rooftop and trees like staying in the mountain resort with the touch of Bali all around you. The only problem we have is the bathroom doesn't have ventilation system and the AC wall unit system is really noisy. The lavatory has both cold and hot water on separate faucets which make it impossible to mix the water temperature which rendered it wortless. Thank goodness the shower has a mixer of cold and hot water. The entrance of the hotel is hard to appreciate the size of this property.
Breakfast this morning is just Okay, but the staff are really friendly. Wifi system is very good all around the property including the room.

Great location. We had a pool villa which could have been amazing except the room was so musky even incense wouldn't mask the smell. The only choice was to have the doors open for fresh air but then we got eaten alive by Mosquitos. Also many weird brown stains on the mosquito netting, walls and pillows.

Dear Ms. Samara Wills,

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback to Pertiwi resort and spa . Your riview was mean to us. I am certainly disappointed that your stay was not all that it could have been.

I would like to apologize on behalf of the hotel and team. We certainly take note for the browns stains on the mosquito netting, walls and pillow. I had address it to department concern to take action. For sure your next visit will change the ambience and atmosphere of pertiwi resort and spa
once again please do accept my apologies and I do hope that the remainder of your trip to Bali was most enjoyable.

With warms regards,

Ill make it succinct, but firstly I should say I have been to Bali 7 times, this is the first time I have felt the need to update everyone in such a negative fashion.

1) the room we are staying in has no ambience at all, it reminds me of an airport motel back in Australia.

2) the bathroom has ants in it and the fluorescent light has a noisy buzz to it.

3) the internet fails to stay connected in our room ( though they say the service exists) so i am writing this review from the foyer

4) the bed is hard & noisy

5) they offer (and advertise) a same day laundry cleaning service providing you drop off before 10:00 am. We dropped off our laundry at 9:00 am and its now 9:00 pm but they don't have it ready "come back tomorrow" they said with a smile.

6) Service in the restaurant or by the bar is poor, you have to go to them to be served.

7) Also watch out for the golf carts the staff use to go from one end of the resort to the other...i discovered they have right of way, even though i was carrying our 6 month old baby.

8) We pre-organised a cot ... it has no mattress in it.

I think i have said enough, one unhappy customer.

Room Tip: I would chose the rooms as far away as possible from the entrance (on Monkey Forest Rd), ours is pro...

I loved the loco here, right on Monkey Forest Rd and walking distance to everything we needed. The staff were friendly and the property grounds beautiful. Two pools were also a treat. Breakfast was a full buffet, which was excellent value compared to other places we've stayed. Only downside was our room. The sheets felt damp and at night all I could smell was the remnants of smoke - as if at one time the room was smoking allowed. Also, our bathroom door didnt shut properly - that meant while I had "Bali Belly", my poor friend also got the worst of it.

Lovely and beautiful hotel! A quiet, clean and green oasis located in 'downtown' Ubud, right in the middle of shopping, restaurants and bars, and within a stroll's distance from Monkey Forest. Perfect location! You can't hear the street from the hotel grounds - and in the back you exit straight to rice fields! We stayed in a 'villa' with our own private blue-tiled pool and outdoor bathroom! Fantastic! Breakfast was tasty and extensive - especially the mint green banana pancakes can be highly recommended! We also give the hotel taxi driver 'Jambae' (not sure of the spelling) our very highest recommendations. He took us all over Southern Bali - at a fair price - and his English and knowledge of the sites and culture is impeccable. The three star rating and the price of staying here has only little to do with the true value of this little slice of Heaven!
We give Pertiwi our very best recommendations!

Enjoyed two nights in Ubud in April 2014. Attentive staff organised an airport transfer upon arrival after midnight. Easy, stress-free. Breakfast is adequate, no fitness centre. We had a Deluxe Pool Villa which has a private pool, outdoor shower and outdoor bathroom. A few mosquitoes which were no problem.

Highly recommended, tranquil setting, fantastic staff.

Room Tip: Deluxe Pool Villa is worth it for the privacy.
