“Mugged!!!”
Reviewed 19 May 2010

What a disappointment of a hotel.
For what you pay the facilities are severly lacking!
However this is insignificant in comparison in that we were mugged/robbed at the entrance of the hotel while the security guard chatted to our assialants.
Do they have an agreement with the local thugs??
DO NOT STAY AT THE PELANGI!

We needed to escape from Kuta so we picked the first hotel with a clean pool. As far as that goes, we did pretty good. The rooms were quite nice and spacious and the bathroom was very clean, and the hotel was located on a more quiet part of the beach right on the boardwalk. And best of all, the pool was sparkling clean! The downsides of this hotel were that it took a bit to get to, the distance from the lobby to the pool/beach was probably 1500 ft, you had to run the air conditioning on high all night or it would leak on the floor, the beds were old and lumpy, and worst of all was that even paying $150 night you couldn't escape the touts because the STAFF tried to sell you trips and transport! Absolutely annoying!!!

this was my 13th time to Bali and my husband and i were travelling with our 15 month old baby girl and my brother and sis in law with their two kids who were 4 and 2 1/2 and my mum and day (first timers to Bali). My hubby and I found the amount of stairs (everywhere to the lobby, to the pool, to the restaurant, to the beach) riduculous and a little hard to negotiate at times (as did some of the other guests with bad knees etc). the rooms were clean but basic. We had an interchanging room which was good value for money and ideal with kids. the gardens were nicely maintained but i have seen better in bali. the pool was nice and over looked the beach and had a swim up bar. the staff were friendly and accommodating. I had never stayed in this area and to be honest I felt like it was a cab ride away from everywhere. there are some nice restaruants a litttle ruther along (heading twoards the bungy) and if you cut through the jakarayata hotel there are some cheap eats and some limited shopping and little spas. i liked the pelangi but don't think that i would stay there agin.

We spent 6 relaxing nights and it was not long enough. The location is good, close to restaurants and shops and with a lovely walk along the beach past other resorts and more restaurants.
Our room was 'super delux' near the pool which we enjoyed and the room was large and comfortable. Bathroom very nice, also large.
The buffet breakfast had many choices in the pleasant open air restaurant overlooking the pool and towards the beach.
The staff were helpful and friendly and we were very appreciative of the use of a room for 30 mins before we left to catch a late night flight. - 7 hours after we had checked out..
We will look forward to returning in the future.

I enjoyed the Pelangi, it's only a short walk to some nice restaurants and shops in Seminyak. While it's certainly not the flashiest hotel I've ever stayed in, it's great value for money, the staff were wonderful and the pool was great.
We stayed on the ground level so it was a short walk from our room to the pool. We spoke to other guests who all seemed to be enjoying their stay.
On the down side the breakfast was very dissapointing and they couldn't make a decent cocktail to save their lives.

We stayed at the Pelangi Hotel in Seminyak for 2 weeks from the 16th April. The wife and I found both the hotel and staff an absolute joy. The hotel is amazing with beautiful pool/pool bar and restaurant. The hotel is right on a beautiful beach and you are a short walk from Seminyak town (restaurants/bars/shops). You are also a short (very cheap) cab ride from Legian and Kuta. We hired a driver for the whole day for about £25 who drove us all around the island (Ubud, Ula Watuh, Jimeran etc).

Special thanks to Gday who looked after us really well throughout the trip.

We will be back in September/October for another 2 weeks.

My adult daughters & I just spent 10 days in Bali and stayed at the Palangi on the recommendation of a work collegue. The hotel is in quiet Seminyak on the beach. The rooms were spacious we had the Superior rooms which were an indulgence. The facilities are first class, the staff extremely first class the only negative and only a small negative was the food. Breakfast was great - eggs to order and everything else you could want was there. We ate in all the areas available and was disappointed with the standard of the main courses - something that we made the management aware of. But we did find a great restaurantt in the main street owned by Aussies - MeNu - 5* for them. When we return to Bali I would certainly stay at the Pelangi again and again and again!
