We looked extensively for a nice hotel in a "real" Bali location (no Nusa Dua), and came across the Padma, largely courtesy of Tripadvisor. Our research showed the rates basically in line with competing properties, and of course, upon arriving, found the hotel to be GREAT.
We stayed in a Chalet room and were quite pleased with our choice. The lagoon building looks great and would be a nice place to stay for a typical vacation, but for this portion of our honeymoon, we wanted someplace a bit more private. This did the trick for sure!
Plusses were the bed (super comfortable), the breakfast (see pretty much every review here), the location (we walked to Kuta, Seminyak, etc which gave us a bit quieter than Kuta but still close to everything), and of course the beach. We discovered quickly that there were a great number of restaurants within 2-3 blocks that had some good eats without the higher hotel prices (pricey and then the ++ added on top of this), which wasn't unexpected...
The biggest negative that we found was the solid doorway that covered the sliding door/window. Coming from the USA, jetlag was a bit of an issue, and we found that this didn't give us an option to figure out when daylight was coming without compromising privacy. Obviously a minor issue, but a secondary curtain on the inside of the door that we could have used instead of the door would have been a welcome addition.
Definitely recommended and if we return to Bali / Legian, we would be happy to stay here again.
