First trip to Bali paid $1.50 a night for “Losman accommodation”; Since then have stayed in several cheap to moderate rated hotels in Legian area, all positive stays; this year upgraded to The Padma. Length of stay, 15th – 25th June in Deluxe Chalets (1 King, 1 Twin) with request for interconnecting rooms. Late arrival, 11.00pm at Hotel Reception, offered 2 X Twin Chalet rooms, 1 ground and 1 first floor above each other. Reception apologised and explained that Interconnecting rooms are subject to availability and check next day for available vacancy. With such a late check-in I was not surprised about vacancy issue and was happy to sort out next day. Checked with Reception 1.00pm and transferred to Interconnecting Chalets following day. Padma is a large hotel complex and it must be difficult to juggle so many “Guest Room Preferences”. With a smile and some patience, things do get sorted out.
Chalets are spacious, with tasteful décor; quiet air-conditioning that does cool, large clean bathroom (Tip: wet clothes dry faster in bathroom o’nite with door closed than out on balcony), and yes agree with previous review, one of the best hotel beds we have slept in. Cleaning staff maintained rooms in good order and are always happy to act on any special requests. Nice touch was having beds turned down each night. Had no hesitation leaving, “Thankyou Tip” at end of stay.
Complimentary breakfast is fabulous, huge selection, Bella Rosa and Tenkai are worth experiencing for that special dinner with some exceptional dishes offered, however with drinks can be an expensive night. Plenty of cheap eats in surrounding streets, Wali Warung, Legian Snacks, Posers and Wayan & Friends worth a try, plus plenty others.
Gardens are postcard perfect; a stroll at night is magical, new garden ponds mentioned in earlier review looking really good.
Swimming pool is magnificent, and we always managed to claim a lounge, although prime positions poolside do go early, preferred the hill overlooking beach, which can be accessed through rear entrance.
Car hire (with driver) easily arranged at reception, not as cheap as outside hotel but more convenient and we were able to negotiate fair price. Blue Bird Taxi always available, ask at desk. Even Hotel Exchange Rate compared to money changes outside is reasonable.
Thumbs Up!!!!!!! To Padma and Staff, who always greeted with a smile. We'll be back next year.
