“A Brides Dream come true”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

I got married at the ma-joly on the 5/10/2013 and i just have to say it was the best wedding ive ever been to! Fiers the event manager was second to none with all the details.....big to the tiniest!

Insane location, amazing food and service second to none!

Also stayed 2 nights at the Sandi Phala in a junior pool suite room and it just topped off the best day in my life.

BIG BIG BIG BIG THANKYOU to all at Sandi Phala and Ma-Joly!

Room Tip: for a little bit of luxury the junior pool suite was amazing

on arrival to sandi phala at 130am we were promptly escorted to our room. it was very efficient we were able to fill in all the boring paper work on departure so we didn't need to do it so late at night.
the room was lovely the bathroom was amazing.
breakfast was perfect alla cart instead of buffet which always excited me.
the breakfast is well cook but lets face it everything tastes good with a view like that.
the service was faultless we were served cocktails in the pool during happy hour.
the beach in fount is acctually owned by the hotel so there is no halkers bugging you during breakfast or layzing on the beach.
the cost can be expensive however we got an amazing deal AUD $160 pernight per room including breakfast.
TIP if you like walking to kuta or discovery walk along the beach it cuts a good 20 mins of the trip.
couldnt praise it enough.

We were impressed with the Sandi Phala hotel and would definitely recommend it.
As a smaller hotel it is has a much nicer feel than some of the big hotels on either side, and it meant we could relax much more with the kids as we felt like we had the run of the place.
We normally would have stayed somewhere a bit cheaper, but given the wedding we were attending was at the Ma Joly restaurant onsite, we decided to treat ourselves. We're glad we took that decision.
It's probably more of a couples hotel, due to its intimate feel, than a family hotel...though we always felt welcome.
The location is great. You can walk into Kuta in 10-15 minutes or get the complimentary transfer if you want to experience the Bali hustle and bustle. Or you can stay in our own little oasis, blissfully unaware of the congestion etc just up the road.
As we were staying with two kids, we booked the Sandi Phala suite. It is huge and the four of us lived very comfortably (the kids on very comfortable trundle beds). The decor is great and the bathroom is also huge. It's better value than booking two individual rooms and much easier to function as a family if you're in the same room.
It's nice that they restock the mini bar every day, free of charge, so you don't feel guilty having a cold Bintang in the warmth of the evening out on your own personal verandah at the end of the day.
The staff are very friendly and can't do enough to help you. They are great ambassadors for the hotel.
The pool is a good size and nice and deep too.
Apart from the wedding buffet, the only meals we ate at the Ma Joly restaurant were the breakfasts and they hit the spot, especially the banana pancakes.
All in all, we were really happy with the Sandi Phala.

Room Tip: Paying the extra money for the Sandi Phala is something you should consider

This place was perfect for a couples getaway. We are always on the look out for places like this. Limited rooms, great pool, service and a great restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and chef Jay made the best food, whether it was for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it was divine. If you are after a hotel that you can relax in I would stay here, we had the pool suite which was roomy and the best bathroom i have used.

Room Tip: The pool suite was fantastic and big. Very private.

Our stay here was the second of 5 stops in Indonesia in which our planning began with a week-long scuba booking at Wakatobi Dive Resort. In traveling that far around the world we decided to spend 6 nights in Bali before Wakatobi (in Sulawesi State) and another 6 nights back in Bali afterward. For reference, you may also see my reviews for Kupu Kupu Barong Villas and Tree Spa, Wakatobi Dive Resort, Damai Lovina and Ibah Warwick as continuations of our customized itinerary that was booked with the assistance of the Wakatobi VIP Concierge service (which I highly recommend).

Rather than brave the long, congested commute from Ubud to the airport my wife and I stayed here 1 night in order to comfortably catch our flight to Wakatobi Dive Resort the next morning. After wending our way through unending urban traffic it seemed as if our driver took a turn through a magic portal and we found ourselves inside this secluded beach-front enclave.

A smallish resort with, I believe, only 11 rooms (give or take) we enjoyed a sense of privacy that is appealing to us. The grounds and swimming pool area were well-groomed and the open, beach-front restaurant and bar were excellent for our delicious complimentary breakfasts. Free in-room wifi was good and also appreciated. I would stay here again as a strategic lay-over for a next-day airport departure.

Room Tip: The rooms all appear to face an interior courtyard with easy access to the front desk, beautiful swi...

Great friendly staff, beautiful setting, will go back. The mini bar is free, yes really and the room is cleaned twice a day and supplies replenished. Free airport transfers both ways. The best thing is the staff.

Room Tip: The ground floor suites have great showers.

The first word that came to our minds when we entered the room @ Sandi Phala was ‘artistic’. The rooms are very tastefully done besides being warm & cosy. The detailing is amazing across all elements – right from amazing photo frames on the walls to the linen – even the key chain was in the shape of a nice coral fish!

They washroom is as big as the room – with a 3-step tub – little elements like a wooden ladder instead of the boring towel hangers; frescoes on the wall instead of plain windows – all of it adds to the charm.

There are only 11 rooms in this resort so it fits the brief for a quiet little place amidst the hustle & bustle of Kuta.

The restaurant ‘Ma Joly’ has a fabulous view – the bar is perhaps the closest to the sea in Kuta – remember to have the camera handy during sunset!

The staff is very friendly – for instance one day when we were a little free, they proactively gave us a complimentary drop to a Dive site in Nusa Dua and also arranged our return trip.

If you want to have the best of both worlds – a nice, blissful place within 20 minutes of the party zone of Kuta, this is the place to stay!
