Sarinande Hotel
Ranked #19 of 124 Seminyak B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2012

This hotel is located in the queit area of Seminyak. it is far from all the hussle of Seminyak and Kuta. It is 2 minutes from the beach. If you want to go the the centre of Seminyak you have to take a cab ( about 1 euro or 1.2 dollars) or walk ( 10 minutes, but through dark alleyways)
to Kuta the cab fare is about 4 euro or 5 dollars.

the hotel itself is great, the rooms are a bit small, but have an amazing soft bed, and a good shower. the rooms are clean, have AC, fridge and TV.
The breakfast was good for Balinese standards, they even had the Dutch Uitsmijter.
You can get free towels for the pool. The pool is cold, but clean and fairly large.

we wanted to stay here for 2 days, but it became 3 and eventually 4. The last day we had to change rooms, and the friendly staff moved our luggage for us.

the staff is absolutely the most friendly I have ever met. They want to do anything for you. All the staf members always greet you with a smile and ask you how you are doing.
There is a shuttle bus who runs 2 times a day to Kuta ( 10 am and 7 pm) drop off only.
and if you stay for longer than 3 days you get a free shuttle service to the airport.
The staff should get an award for kindness!

we did 2 tours ( Tanah Lot and Lovina) they were great and the drivers were very friendly. The only weird thing is that we wanted to go to Lovina, but the driver really didn't want to go there so he convinced us to go to the rice fields and other places. I did not really matter to us, we had a great day but if they think Lovina is to far, they should not place that tour in their programme.

It is perfect for families, elderly people and people who want to have a goodnight sleep en a peaceful and queit area to relax.

some tips people who want to stay at the Sarinande:

ALWAYS take a metered taxi, there are a lot drivers who want to scam you and ask up to 10 dollars (!) for a two minute drive to the heart of Seminyak. The metered taxi's cost about 1.2 dollars so do the math.

We are leaving Sarinande after three weeks (5 days up north)
We love it here
150 metres to the beach
500metres to the shopping area
The staff go out of their way to make you comfortable and are always ready for a quick chat
We stayed in one of the renovated rooms and it was fantastic,...spacious and modern, with a mix of sleek lines and Balinese decor
Sarinande is an exceptionally clean convenient and comfortable boutique hotel in Seminyak.
The included breakfasts were excellent with a lot of choice.
The daily shuttle 10am and 7pm is a bonus if one wants to go to Kuta
Pick up and transfer to the airport is also an added bonus
We have stayed in many hotels in the past 20 years in Bali but have returned to Sarinande because of the intimacy and value
We will of course be sad to leave but knowing we will return to this hotel makes it easier for us

Hotel looks like à nice setting , close the beach and bars and restaurants.
Staff is polite , but to less staff in kitchen and restaurant.So you have slowly service.
There are also about 6 cats in the hotel.They sit on the chairs and tables .
Swimmingpool is old and many tiles are broken.

For the roomprice of 550.000 Rp. you can find better than this place.
Old hotel and old rooms.Old bathroom .
At the moment they are renovating the rooms.One by one.Very slowly. 1 room in maybe 2 months.
It is also allowed to take hookers to your room.

So,to expensive , for this kind of hotel. Shame , the setting is good.

Sarinande is a nice place, near to the beach and away from the traffic!!

The pool, food and staff are very good! Especially the nice bar in the pool and the free use of bath towels!

There are some big down sides as well! The rooms are very old, the bathroom is small and dirty! The rooms are quiet noisy!!

The value of this hotel is ok! The price for this area is not high but dont expect too muc of the room!!

We were staying at a nearby hotel in Seminyak, Bali. When we did not want to walk around to find a restaurant in the busy district of Seminyak, we encountered Sarinande Beach Inn's restaurant. It was a small setting by its pool.

The service was slow. They probably has one or two persons in the kitchen. However, their food was quite good and the cost was very low. The bill didn't even have any charges for tax or service. A great value and we highly recommend it if you ever encounter it.

i stayed here two years ago and chose this place because it was close to the villa where my friends were getting married. it was charming and much value for the money.

this is my second time in bali, and this place has gone downhill a bit. this will be the last time

- i was quoted twice the amount i paid two years ago.. i assumed it was because it was high season and we were getting a "superior room". well - it's not high season, we didnt get any room superior to the last one i stayed in, and we also got shuffled to different rooms as if we didnt make reservations prior to our arrival.
- over email it was stated that we would get airport transfers, even though we were both leaving on different dates. today, they said they would charge us for one transfer.
- the bathrooms were not that nice last time either, but in one room, we had to keep the bathroom door locked shut at all times because of the sewage smell, and had to buy incense to cleanse the other strange room smell away
- this place just looks run down, no fresh flowers and charming accents like last time
- for what we paid this time around, a dark room with no windows is not acceptable
- minor complaint, but the walls are thin and you can hear everything everywhere

clean comfortable beds
fast wifi
great pool (until the last day when it turned green because the filter broke)
friendly staff

in the past two years since ive been here, there have been a TON of new places that mushroomed in the area. we checked the rates and they are much cheaper than what we were quoted here (double the rate of what i paid last time) with newer nicer facilities.
sorry sarinande, its over.

Room Tip: stay elsewhere.

We walked over from our villa. They only have about six tables but they are all poolside. One of us raved about his fish, the rest had a good meal of fish and chicken. They were kind enough to let us bring our liquor from our villa and not charge us corkage fees. That really helped keep the dinner price at $22 for the four of us.
