Reviewed 9 August 2013

Overpriced rooms, many bugs in the room, bedsheets and floor that never seem to stop entering the room.

Part of the toilet can be seen from the outside, however great view of the sea and an infinity pool to look forward to. However, with the money you are paying, one can get rooms which are closer to the beach if you are willing to forego the swimming pool.

Staff were slow in attending to my needs and I waited nearly 30mins just to check out, as there is only 1 staff manning the main counter. Breakfast was just normal, and overall the food was nothing to look forward to. Bad Wifi even if you sit in the restaurant, and there is no wifi in the rooms which is a very negative point.

At least 80 steps to climb to get up to the rooms so if you are unfit, you should consider getting another hotel elsewhere or you would have to climb the stairs everytime you leave and enter the hotel to get to your room.

Room Tip: The higher you are, the better the views.

We stayed 2 nights at Bedulu Resort. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who helped us check in and carry our bags up the many stairs to our room. The Superior Room was in a great spot, overlooking the awesome infinity pool and was very tidy and clean. On the 1st night however, there were a few cockroaches roaming around the bathroom and the doors did not shut properly, leaving a 2inch gap which more insects could crawl/fly through. On the 2nd night the door had been fixed and we found no insects/bugs in the room at all and had a very pleasant sleep. We had a few dramas with booking our fast boat to Gilis and the staff were extremely helpful even though it was not their fault at all. Overall, bedulu Resort is great value for money, in a great location (short walk/ride to main town) and the view from the pool is superb. The staff were friendly and very helpful... would definitely recommend

I love this Hotel! Let me tell you some of my thoughts about this Resort!

The Great:
- Amazing Ocean View from upper cabins, especially the superior room. I took a Sun Rise the first night, too bad I didnt get the picture that I wanted.
- Great Pool, because this located in the very top of the resort and only a view Room at the top, so We (me and Wife) most of the time are the only people who used the pool for few hours.
- Great Customer service, people are polite and helpful
- AC in the room really helpful in Amed strong Sun
- Because our room located at the top of the hill, we get less mosquito.
- not lots of traffic

The Bad
- Internet only available at the lobby/Restaurant/Kitchen
- if you have bad knee or leg or just overall lazy, you gotta pick the lower rooms that located not too far from the street.
- Food, taste not too great but eat-able, Food little pricey for that type of taste and service
- Dont expect people with clean and straight uniform that working there.
- If you a clean freak, The Manager might not be the manager of the year in your book, cuz this guy didnt change clothes for 3 days, he might not take a shower either.

Amazing food with extensive western menu complete with Aussie burgers & even an authentic wood fired pizza oven. Great views, friendly staff. Quiet location, bamboo decor. They also have an authentic espresso coffee machine...a rarity here.
Overall a great experience. Definitely return.
Good value

Me and my friend booked two nights at Bedulu on Agoda mainly because I knew the views from up high were meant to be amazing. I will say that this is right; our superior room had a deck and day bed overlooking the ocean and the infinity pool with a similar view is beautiful! Our room was great, fresh white paint and linen, a nicely paved stone floor bathroom, hot shower and decent A/C. There were a few too many bloodstains where past guests have splattered mosquitoes for my liking but still, we're in the tropics. What really let this place down is the staff.

I got the impression the owner was absent (he's from Darwin apparently?) and so the staff were just lazing about. As soon as we arrived in our car from Ubud a shoeless man with a grubby stained shirt and brown teeth approached and asked for our booking form. We were still standing on the driveway in the blazing sun. We asked if there was a check in desk at which he led us up the stairs to reception, only for us to find thy weren't expecting us. We had booked the night before on Agoda but it turned out their Internet didn't work (WIFI was usually down) so they hadn't received the booking. The young girl at the desk made a face and acted like it was a big deal, even though there was room for us, sat us down and then eventually the man with the brown teeth led us up some overgrown shabby steps to the room we'd paid for. Note: he was smoking a cigarette the whole time and never offered to help with my bag! When we got to the room he took us inside complete with his lit cigarette and leaned over the unplugged mini bar sending smoke into the warm fridge and all over the room!

It was a lot of steps to the room but the view was worth it. The pool is great! However... Next morning at breakfast we ordered poached eggs and the omelette. My eggs arrived and then we waited almost 30 mins for the omelette. Eventually we asked what was going on and they said the gas had broken. Nice of them to tell us. We just sat there waiting. That night we asked them to call Sails restaurant to come get us, which Sails do for free if you eat there. The girl behind reception made us wait ages while she scrambled round trying to get credit for her own cellphone. Very sweet but why not just tell me the hotel phone doesn't work, or there isn't one, and ask to use someone else's phone? Just seems like a lack of common sense to be honest.

The next day we hired snorkels and a motorbike. The flippers were too small for my friend but they acted like it was no big deal and didn't bother asking if they could get another pair for us until we asked them. Both motorbike helmets were too big and very old. My friend's made his head itch and once when he took it off a mouse dropping fell out of it.

Really it's the little things that count when you come away somewhere nice and quiet and honestly the staff here really spoiled the experience for us. They just don't care. Next time I would go to Blue Star down the hill. Nice rooms (cheaper but decent) great staff and awesome food. Don't miss lunch or dinner there if you don't stay.

Room Tip: Higher the better, the superior rooms all have sea views.

We spent four nights in this nice hotel and had one of the superior rooms uphill. We needed to go a few steps to get up to our room but the amazing sea view from the infintiy pool and even out of our own bedroom when lying in bed was really worth the few steps. The staff was friendly and always willing to meet our needs. It was a quite and relaxing place with the beach and the coral gardens right in front of the hotel. It was the right place to relax after having dived or snorkeled around. Close by is also the best location to see the sunset behind the beautiful volcanos of bali. As long as you don't mind taking a few steps up the hill, this is a great place to stay.

Had a great time at Bedulu Resort, the staff were so kind and helpful.... a big thank you to Marini for being such a good hostess and tour guide. Must admit that we went there with many plans for adventure but ended up spending most of the time hanging out by the pool, although we did visit Lempuyang temple nearby with great views from the mountain top and also snorkelled at the Japanese shipwreck which was great.

I was a little concerned about what to expect after reading some negative reviews but I really couldn't find any fault withthis place or the local family that run it. The rooms were spotless - no mould! and the view was just as good as the photos on the website.

Will definately be recommending to my friends and family back home.

Room Tip: close by the pool for the best views
