We LOVED the Padma. The resort made our holiday! Some may say it's expensive compared to other Bali accommodation, but once you add up all what's provided its incredible value for money.
The service is amazing (special hi to Hannah and Senti from Anjali and Roshan). Everyone is eager to help and say hi, even the security. Everything is answered with a yes, the flexibility for guests is appreciated. If it's not on the menu, they'll try and accommodate anyway. Kids are made to feel special (what more do parents want!).
Food is very tasty, we tried the tropical bbq buffet and ate our fill of satay while watching the Ramayana in balinese dance. Lots of pool and room service, drinks are awesome, milkshakes, and the fiery mexicana was our fave pizza. Price are OK especially we got a US$50 credit due to construction work to use every day (and we never saw any construction - bonus!). Kids and us never got sick the whole time we ate there. Breakfast is unbelievable, - pancakes and waffles, bacon and fruit were our favourites. And the freshly squeezed pineapple and watermelon juices.
Pools are amazing, we swam in both heaps, water is the best temperature so there is no hesitation to jump in. We even swam at 9pm after a shopping trip. And of course, its great to swim up to the bars and order bintang and cocktails, or juice for the kids.
The beach is average but the view from the resort is lovely. Great breeze and they have set up places to sit and relax looking at the beach. I only went to the beach once and it was dirty, but padma kids cleaning it up. Outside the resort isn't that neat but lots of great stalls so we enjoyed the shopping.
The resort is huge, and the gardens amazing. We loved the green everywhere. It was a paradise to return back to after heading out.
Had a few massages outside the padma but the best massage was in padma, but its too expensive. $6 outside versus $115 inside, please padma revise the pricing. Although I note guests get discounts, its still pricey. I did get my daughters hair braided at the resort as I thought it's safer, and it was excellent but $50 (outside $15). They took 1.5 hours though so can't complain, she loves it.
Everywhere the padma keeps umbrellas so you never travel anywhere and get wet. Anyway it only rained 2 half days and overnight. Bali weather rocks, evenings the breeze is too good.
The children's club was superb and allowed us to hit the gym or a massage, while kids were entertained and safe. It's a sign in/out procedure and like childcare, we hesitantly used it then found it to be good for a couple hours kids happy and us.
Pool towels available near pools, pool games (with icecream prizes for kids), heaps of bottled water in rooms, even 4 new toothbrushes each day. We were spoilt.
Families with kids who swim will love this resort. It's safe, clean, relaxing, and the staff are really there to make the guest happy. Thank you Padma for making our holiday, we hope to return one day.
