We stayed here at the recommendation of work colleagues and it was fantastic.
We didn't have to worry about a thing - to the extent that on our next trip, we can leave a few things at home because you're fully catered for - even power adaptors (if coming from AU).
From the airport shuttle service to and from the hotel, to the little extras we received - they absolutely go the extra mile and it's great value.
It was our wedding anniversary and we arrived back to our room mid-morning to find a gorgeous chocolate mud cake waiting us - decorated with Happy Anniversary. What a special touch.
Breakfast was fantastic - we've eaten so many buffet breakfasts around the world and this was excellent, from the choice available (Western or traditional Indonesian), to the brilliant customer service from Donbiu staff. I speak a little Bahasa and the staff were excited to converse with me and help me out (I'm a little rusty!).
The lagoon pools were just beautiful - especially at night and the swim-up bars were fantastic.
In terms of location to everything - you're within walking (or taxi) distance to Kuta and Seminyak, the block around Jalan Padma has some good food choices, and we loved Mozerella along the beach (turn right at the beach front exit from the hotel).
If you're after touristy shopping, Ketut's and Miss Debbie's, are both fixed price.They're five minutes walk from Padma (exit the hotel in Jalan Padma and turn right into Jalan Sahadewa. Halfway down and they're virtually opposite each other.
If you want better shopping, head to Seminyak.
Once you walk back into the hotel grounds - it takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the streets and becomes so peaceful.
What makes the Padma great is the people. Nothing is too much trouble and they are testament to the saying that Bali is full of smiles.
