The Haven Bali
Ranked #59 of 149 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed 8 October 2010

we stayed for 5 nights, and maybe that's why we were upgraded to the suite room. =)
breakfast was pretty good, everything was great, but you would still have to walk for about 5-10 minutes to go to Seminyak beach.

This is a lovely hotel in the heart of Seminyak, close to shops and restaurants. The better side is on Jl. Raya Seminyak.The rooms are spacious and clean with all the expected amenities. The accomodation cost includes ahearty buffet breakfast with all tastes catered for. There is s lovely pool, over 20 metres long so you can do some laps or laze in the deck chairs. The Villas are much more luxuriou and this is reflected in the price difference.
The only negative is the very high cost of other meals and drinks.A two course meal for 2 with one bottle of wine cost in excess of 2.000.000 rupiah which equates to over $240. This cost seems even more excessive when many meals outside the hotel can be found for under 60.00 rupiah (about $7.50).
So stay ther have a great breakfast and wander close by for lunch or dinner

We stayed at the Haven Sept 2010 and loved it. Choice of rooms, exec rooms and Private Villa. It's very new with great service food and 4 pools. Situated on the corner of double six Jalan, a must if you want to treat yourself to a fairly newly established Resort.

The wife and I decided on a last minute holiday to Bali,,,,and on the date we could leave & return to Melbourne,... The Haven was one of the few Hotels available..... but the package was good so we took it on blind faith.
We had a late arrival but checkin was quick & smooth. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The En-suite included a large bath with shower overhead. The shower rose was the size of a dinner plate and the water was hot with plenty of pressure.... the wife was happy !!
The pools were great.... and although I've read a few reviews commenting on the lack of seating.... we had no problems at all.
There are only a few things I had concerns about..... the first being the cost of drinks in both the restraunt and the mini-bar. $15 is a bit much for a gin and tonic.... and $9 was also over the top for a mineral water.... so we brought our own drinks in...
We stayed on the 4th floor.... and if you're wary of heights.... the balcony handrail is far to low.... you wouldn't want to be out there after you've had a few drinks.
Finally.... there is a problem with dampness in the En-suite.... I'm in the building game and I picked up on it immediately. The En-suite smells a little "musty" and water stains are obvious on the floors and walls. This will be a major issue to the Hotel in coming years as it seems to be happening in "every" room.
All in all... we were very pleased with our stay at The Haven.... the staff were obliging and helpful.....would we stay there again ? ...... probably...... and we would recommend it to our friends..... at least in the short term.

I stayed in the Seminyak with 6 girls for 7 nights in August. I am a university student from Canada and was looking very much forward to relaxing at the Haven. We stayed in the suites section. I forgot to put my cell phone in the safe the first night we arrived. The second day housekeeping came into my room to clean and stole my cell phone. The hotel has since fired the employee and is sending my cell phone back to me.

I regret to say that this is quite unfortunate because it costs a lot of money to stay there. I have had the inconvenience of buying a new phone and also without a phone while on holidays.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed at the Haven in the suite area in the beginning of September. We were very excited to read the reviews before we left and we had a wonderful time! The suite area is beautiful. They have a number of pools surrounded with lush tropical plants, pool side chairs for everyone and very attentive towel and drinks staff. The one negative comment I would make is that they are not real good at mixing the drinks and they are quite expensive (100, 000 RP approx 12 AUD) But the room was heaven! large lounge room with a flat screen TV, full balcony with day beds, the air con worked well and the bed was large and comfortable also with a flat screen TV! we had no problems with the cleaning staff, a few times we put the do not disturb sign on the door and they would always call us later on in the day to see if we wanted it cleaned or fresh towels etc. very attentive.
The staff were exceptionally friendly always smiling and saying good morning- the one down side is they didn't speak Indonesian and even when we greeted them with the local hello they would always Say "hello" back. I always enjoy learning a bit of the language when I am overseas so this was a bit sad :( the breakfast was also great with a huge selection and they even had Vegemite which was great!. Everything was clean and spacious and nothing was too much trouble for the staff, we were very spoilt! Our Driver Juni was GREAT! So if you stay ask the transport people for Juni, he will show you a great time for a reasonable price.

Sabene restaurant was delicious and good value for the hotel restaurant, the Spa was expensive approx 50 USD for a massage but it was relaxing and quiet- I would recommend perhaps going for one treatment there and then getting cheaper ones out in the town.

It is very modern, very clean and very exciting for a young couple like us.
Apart from the expensive, not very well mixed drinks! And the fact that they kept us waiting for about 15 mins while they checked the mini bar when we checked out, it was an AMAZING place to stay and would recommend it to any couples wanting a break and families who want a little slice of heaven in Seminyak.

We will visit again!!!

We checked into the Haven hotel purely because we couldnt get anything else. Theres nothing much Balinese about this hotel. The staff are very good, friendly and very helpful,check In and Out was easy with a welcome drink and cool towel while we waited our turn, breakfast was sufficient, variety was good, and easy to obtain as long as you ate between 7 and 8.30 after that it was a bit hectic to get a table which is understandable. we were dissapointed in the pool which to us was more of a large water feature.The room we had was 4th floor, 2 small drawers to store clothes and a wardrobe that has a very bad water smell in it. so we lived out of suitcases for 14 days. Otherwise the room itself was quite comfortable. Noise carried up from the pool area, and open passageways, and for some reason there was always someone dragging furniture around and slamming doors between 11pm and 2am. The laundry service is very expensive and we found a very good service around the corner off double six. The Gym seemed sufficient, the free 30 minute internet access was a plus. I didnt think much of the location being neither here nor there in Seminyak / Legian. Shopping in the area was expensive and so were the restaurants and cafes. The beach club access left a lot to be desired, although close to a toilet and a short stroll to buy a much cheaper bintang than what the hotel had to offer. The late check out 6pm was great and so was the availability of a back room to store our baggage until transfers arrived.
