Dhyana Pura Beach Resort
Ranked #139 of 149 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed 21 November 2012

We have stayed at Dyhana Pura many times and were saddened to hear that the hotel is closing for major renovations. New owners are to completely rebuild the back of the hotel with the front currently undergoing a re-build. This stay it was the same friendly staff, the same good pool and beautiful grounds, however you could tell that the place had been 'let go'. The restaurant had limited breakfasts - hardly any fruit, one night we dropped in for dessert to be advised that they had no ice cream, the toilets had no soap. Such a shame, as our previous visits had been first class.
So goodbye old friend - we and many others will miss you. Lets just hope that the new owners re-develop with some class and care.

We have just spent a week at The Dhyana Pura & we were very disappointed. The only reason we booked here was to be close to my sister who was staying across the road at The Royal Seminyak Beach.
The first room we were shown over looked a building site. The 2nd was 20 meters closer to the beach & the final one was well located about 50 metres from the beach & opposite the pool.
The room was good for the price & everything worked.
Unfortunately the location is poor in regard to shopping or restaurants. You have to walk about 400 meters to find a mini mart & a selection of restaurants. (Although there are some "Beach Shack" type restaurants on the beach front. These are quite nice for Lunch but not really an evening meal place.
The pool area is quite unkempt & has no "vibe" at all. The swim up bar is unattended & the sun lounges are in disrepair. Breakfast is very limited. No cereals, yoghurt or cooked indo/western dishes, although an egg station is provided. During 7 days I never saw one person in the restaurant for lunch or dinner.
There are better located hotels close by.

Not the hotel of your dreams but frankly it works: access to the beach, nice and quiet room with A/C, average breakfast, swimming pool, nice garden and quite friendly staff, close to shops and restaurants. Good value.

Then, it's true, there are some negative points: no wifi in room (free at lobby), old hotel, swimming pool stops very early, not the best spot for surfing.

Note that swimming in the sea is dangerous in front of the hotel.

my faimly and i where shipped here after our rooms beeing double booked elsewere.
the idea of the hotel is nice its just not well executed. two of our rooms had outdoor showers which alot of hotels in bali do however these were not very well secluded and were very barron looking out from the toilet or shower to a brick wall and some pebles. the third room had an indoor bathroom which had mold everwhere and some hair still in the bath tub. this being said the locations was nice however we werent very familiar with seminyak at the time. the grounds were lovely and the pool bar although not always manned made some damn fine cocktails.
in summary if you were paying the right price and didnt intend to spend alot of time in the room it may be enjoyable.

We booked our room on Agoda and paid $63 w/tax. This is a great value for this area considering the location. There are reveiwers that say this place is in desperate need of a renovation and that is precisely why it is in uch a state of decay. It is being torn down slowly
and is one of the last remaining hotels of its kind on this stretch of beach. You do not see too many hotels with expansive grounds like this - especially for the price.
Just don't too get too excited about breakfast or a fancy bathroom and you will love the Dhyana Pura for what it is... but it won't last long. The original entrance and lobby have already been torn down.

I wont say much, here are my points why i wont recemmend this hotel to others unless they do something to be a better hotel to stay.

1) hotel & rooms are very, very old.
2) room is smelly. it is so smelly like BO, well at first we thought maybe we just switched on the air-cond & hoping the smell will go away eventually but it didnt. We bought air-freshener.
3) filthy room wall & toilet. mould-like everywhere.
4) room phone with no directory. we tried pressing every single number to get the front desk.
5) old & small tv with indonesian channels. ergh??
6) smelly cupboard. i dont know how to describe. just dont hang your clothes in there. thats all
7) the breakfast is super horrible! you wont miss anything if you dont have your breakfast there. trust me. when we were there, it was only plain fried rice & fried noodle (no vege + meat + chicken), dry cheap bread, cereal (the bowl was empty when we arrived, they didnt refill, they took away the bowl), and egg station.
8) pool is old and ugly.
9) room has no wi-fi except at the lobby & restaurant.
10) we asked for iron & ironing board as we were getting ready for a romantic New Year Eve dinner, well they didnt have what we wanted . they suggested us to send the clothes to their laundrette. the clothes came back half-hour later with no diff to the clothes at all!
