Come and bring your friends to Majoly Restaurant
The Restaurant is facing the beach makes the atmosphere so relaxed, had lunch with international menu served in an attractive presentation proving professionalism and elegance of Majoly Restaurant at Sandi Phala resort in Kuta.
I really enjoy my dishes such as crab spaghetti, good taste and variety of the menu is very attractive , I highly recommend to try.

I ended my trip in Bali spending 7 night in this wonderful small (11 suites only), calm and relaxing oasis combining both tradition based rooms and adapted swimming pool, reserved beach space, and high French cuisine touch culinary experience adapted with local products with adequate selection of wines.
Both the director and chief cook are continuously looking for improving the service and quality which make you feel like a real guest who is taken care of ...
Yes, the airport is not so far away but it is rarely noisy due to it and thus no earplug are needed.
Try the evening free flow cocktail and canapés aperitive when watching the sunset ...
Enjoy the breakfast 'à la carte' at sunrise at the beach front where if you have special wishes the team will do their best to satisfy you.
As a French citizen, I was also asked for further improvement ideas, thus be sure you do also come back soon as the Team is highly motivated and right now working on amazing new menu at the Ma Joly Restaurant !!!

Again a big Thank You to the whole Team and please continue to work on improvement with the same spirit and positive attitude of dedication.

Warmest Regards,

Dr Ing David Fetsch, PhD

Loved it. If you bring earplugs you will be fine as it is under the flight path. We wish we had stayed there the whole time instead of changing hotels.
It is small and quiet and attached to one of the best restaurants in Bali. Authentic in its design which makes you feel like you are really in Bali not just another hotel.
Just outside of the busy areas but close enough to walk in.

I stayed in The Sandi Phala for a friend's wedding. It was indeed a wonderful stay.
I especially loved my room, it was beautiful Balinese traditional style with a nice bathroom. Traditional but comfy!
I also like the fact that this hotel has not so many rooms so it feels pretty private. Eventhough I always prefer to stay in Seminyak area than around Kuta, but it didn't bother me at all that time.
And not to mention that they use L'Occitane bathroom amenities... love 'em!
Highly recommended for more mature guests.

This hotel is a beautiful, calm and relaxing oasis. Just a stroll from the fun madness of Kuta, but could be a world away. Staff are amazing, the personal attention is top class. Comfy beds, lovely rooms, and the bathrooms are divine. Beautiful gardens and pool, the restaurant is superb and cocktails the best in Bali. Looking forward to another stay and indulging my inner princess. Spa was being remodelled when we were there, but its just down the road from some great spas, so you don't notice the lack at all.

I strongly recommend this small hotel. Very nice grounds and rooms!
Booking it I was a little concerned about staying in Kuta but I must say my expectations came to shame.
The only set back was the mosquitoes but toxic spray always help...
The private beach is wonderful!

I have stayed at many BIG name resorts in Bali and 5 star at that. After reading many other reviews I was keen to stay here and I can say it is better than I expected! The Sandi Phala is a Gem hidden in Bali. It's only a 5min drive north from the airport.

The resort only has 11 villas and is very quiet. Perfect for a couples retreat. The villas are very comfortable boasting all amenities and a huge bath with shower and free mini bar!. The villas surround a beautiful forest style garden with a huge tree that is in the middle of the garden, remind s me of AVATAR. It's like being in Ubud and on the beach, best of both worlds.

The pool is gorgeous and so quiet overlooking the beach but tucked away in privacy, we had the pool to our selves the whole time as there doesn't seem to be anyone else around, even though it's high season!

The restaurant Ma Joly is fantastic, the breakfast is very nice and again peaceful while overlooking the beach.

The cocktail bar/lounge is very relaxing and comfortable serving guests and people passing by. It feels like a Caribbean beach bar. They serve afternoon tea/coffee with finger cakes that are so good for guests! And of course happy hour:-)

The staff are very friendly and provide the highest service making your stay very relaxing. They really look after you. They provide a complimentary transfer to Kuta or perhaps Jimbaran seafood restaurants and arrange transfer return at no cost.

It's a short stroll up the beach past the BIG name hotels that are noisy.and crowded to the plaza mall for some shopping, massages, restaurants etc and short walk back to peace again.

Negatives: you can here the airport and nearby hotels.
Positives: very relaxing and tranquil, everything you want is at your fingertips what more could you ask for from the Sandi Phala, I highly recommend this resort and will most definitely return here as my new favorite resort and Bali getaway!

Thanks Sandi Phala:-)
