Our first time in Bali, and won't the last. The Pelangi was a lovely hotel, a little bit dated, but still a lovely place to stay. The staff were wonderful so friendly and accommodating. Breakfast every morning, pool, swim up bar and the beach on it's doorstep, what else do you want. Different Warung's all the way down the beach, so you can pull up a bean bag, staff take your order of drinks and food if you want. (All so very cheap...) Everything is 3 mins away from the hotel, shopping, spa treatments and transport. The hotel also has a little booking desk for booking your tours, they were excellent, just leave it all to the hotel, pickup - tour - drop off. We would definitely return to the Pelangi Spa Hotel, hopefully very soon.

This is our second stay at the Pelangi. We were there Aug 2013 and returned in July 2014.

Of course we like the hotel hence we came back and I will tell you what is good about it.

Location.
Right in the heart of Seminyak beach...its "almost" beach facing. A tiny little lane separates it from having beach access but that is basically fine. You can lie of one of the numerous sun beds by the pool and stare at the ocean or just go out and hire one of the sun beds on the beach or like me, a beach towel will do.

Its a short walk to double six road where there are numerous shops and restaurants. In fact, you don't have to venture far outside the hotel to find lots of bars and restaurants serving food right on the beach itself.

Location is probably the biggest draw for me.

Rooms
Rooms are decent for the price but the hotel does look a tad jaded. Don't expect the best looking rooms. There really isn't anything wrong about them. The beds are comfortable...so are the pillows. The bathroom is decent with the usual amenities. House cleaning comes daily to change so no issues there.

Breakfast/Food
I believe most booking options come with breakfast which is ample. There is an egg station where you can get your eggs cook anyway you want. Selection of all you can eat local and international spreads - sausages, hash browns, noodles, fried rice. You can get cereals and fruits for a healthier option.

Spa
There is a decent spa where the price is of course more expensive then among the hundreds of spas outside but the spa in Pelangi is definitely cleaner and of decent quality. I had a 1 hour Bali massage for around US$25.

Other events
its a small hotel so there really isn't much in terms of activities but I reckon most are there to enjoy the location ie beach and the rest of Bali rather than staying put. There is a Bali Traditional Dance and Dinner event every Monday which is actually quite well put on.

If I ever want to go back to Seminyak I would consider Pelangi again for the location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the swimming pool. There are 2 levels and if you want to avoid the stairs...

Have just returned from this hotel. Older building but placed right onto the beach. You can lie on sunbeds and either swim in the pool or have a two minute amble to the beach to swim in the ocean.
Comfortable bed and clean linen daily. Breakfast was plentiful and did not alter much daily but worth it.
The desk staff and room staff were very friendly and obliging. Nice gardens surrounding the hotel rooms made it relaxing.
Easy walk or cheap taxi ride to restaurants in surrounding area and about a five minute walk past restaurants and stalls to the main shopping street.
Bars and restuarants on the beach front for night life. We found the warungs and food places cheaper on the roads leading away from the beach.
Good wi-fi coverage and there is a safety box room beside the front desk, not in the room. (We thought this may prove inconvenient, though it was not a problem)
Safe to walk around this area at night and beach bars on the beach outside the hotel. Lots of live music and cheap food.
Overall a lovely stay and I would return.

Room Tip: There are balconies on the upper levels. Ground level had access to the gardens

The Pelangi is what i would call a typical balinese style hotel that were built in during the boom in tourists to bali in the late 80's and into the 2000's. This hotel is now looking like quite and old lady but is still very good value for money considering it is located right on the beach in Seminyak. It is one of the cheapest beachfront hotels in seminyak, which makes it very appealing. Whilst lacking some of the modern conveniences of the newer hotels it has everything that you need to enjoy a holiday in this part of bali. It is close to shopping, very good restaurants, and is on the beach. The rooms are clean, the aircon worked well and the staff are very nice and friendly. the breakfast for us was simple but adequate. the balcony was very small however and not conjusive to sitting outside as one chair basically filled the little space. I would definately stay here again but for those who like ultra modern hotels with the latest and greatest in decor this hotel probably isnt for you.

Stayed here with husband in July for a week. The welcome drink and cool towel on arrival were much appreciated after a long flight and customs delays! Our room was spacious with a spa bath and a very comfortable bed. The hotel is in a great location, opposite the beach and there are excellent restaurants walking distance away. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The pool layout caters for young children and adults. As the surf over the road was too strong while we were there, it was good to have the alternative option of the beachside pool. Breakfast choices were very good with wide variety of hot and cold dishes and the service was excellent. Would recommend this hotel to couples and families.

Room Tip: Ground floor superior deluxe close to pool, restaurant and beach

I've stayed at Pelangi 4 times over the last 6 years. I love the location and the friendly staff. It's great to still see some of the same faces from 6 years ago. Good surfing opportunities (for beginners) out the front of the hotel. A perfect walking distance between Kuta and Seminyak. Great hotel for couples, singles and friends.

Room Tip: All rooms I've stayed in have been of the same standard.

My husband and I stayed here recently for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We were greeted at reception with a welcome drink and although our room wasn't ready (we were a little early) we made full use of the facilities until it was.

Nice rooms with lots of amenities and reasonably priced mini bar. Made to feel very welcome by all hotel staff. Drinks were a good price in all bars with good cocktail selection.

Breakfast was very good - fresh fruit, pancakes, yogurt, cereal, bread, pastry, cooked items e.g. Bacon, sausage, egg station and Indonesian rice and noodles! Plenty of choice!!

Excellent bar in the evening that plays love music if you come out by the pool and turn right, it's called taris!

30 min walk to Kuta if you want more night life along the strip, with brands such as McDonalds, Starbucks, Hardrock Cafe and even Pizza Hut and express! We didn't like it though, too busy!

Rooms were nice, good service, well priced! Highly recommended
