O-CE-N Bali by Outrigger

Need more information for this hotel. Group of 8 of us are planning to book 2 units of 2 bedroom suites for our upcoming Bali trip in Aug.

To those who have stayed there before: how's the layout of the 2 bedroom suite like? Are there 2 separate bedrooms? And each with en suite bathrooms? Or are the bathrooms shared by 2 bedrooms?

Have tried looking for photos, but can't really tell how the layout of the room is like. Also we would like to know whether the hotel is a crowded and noisy environment (as it is quite a large property with so many rooms)

Or any recommendations for 2 or 4 bedroom suites or villas at a budget of USD250 -300 (2 bedrooms) and USD500 - 600 (4 bedrooms)?

My friends and I prefer somewhere that is relatively new as we think newer hotels/resorts are cleaner. Would really appreciate any advice or help!

Stayed here last December in a two bedroom unit. The unit is small and you share a bathroom. It can get loud during the night, cause of a nightclub next to it. Lots of meal options along the road and the beach is just across the street, but with your budget, you should find somewhere else to stay.

Thanks indobh, will take note.

Found out from another traveler that there are a few different layouts for 2 bedroom suites. Hmmm... so confusing. Yeah maybe we will check out other places as well. This is our first time going to Bali, so not sure whether we will like the crowded beaches, but don't think we want to stay too far from town.

Either way, I would definitely stay away from O-CE-N. A great place is Kumala Pantai a couple doors down. I stayed at their penthouse suite (two bedroom and a small kitchen). The food is decent and the price was really reasonable (around $200/night), but that was around 2004, so don't know how much it will cost now.

I recommend the Seminyak area (great bars and restaurants). I will be going there in June, but it'll still be low season. a 2 bed villa around USD250 nett (Indonesian rate). Don't know if August is low season or not. Just Google "seminyak villas" and start from there.

We have checked out villas in Seminyak. Most of them are beyond our budget as August is high/peak season. We are now looking at the choice between Sun Island Villa, Ranadi Villa and The Kozy Villa.

Don't know about Sun Island or The Kozy, but I heard good things about Ranadi Villas from friends who stayed there.

Yes, Ranadi looks good and has good reviews here. But it is a little over our budget, so we have decided to split our stays into: 3 days at a Tune Hotel (a budget hotel at Kuta area which is very clean and new but very small!) and 2 days at Ranadi. Is it worth the hassle I wonder?

IMO is worth the hassle. For me a trip to Bali now is about staying in the Villas. I go to Bali to relax and hardly do any sightseeing at all, so the extra space and your own pool really makes a difference.

Well, it's our first time in Bali so we have planned 3 days with a driver to bring us around and sightseeing. Now for the same amount of money, I am torn between the options of:

1) Staying in a reasonably priced hotel with nice pool/ nice view/ near beach for all 5 nights

2) Staying 2 nights at small budget hotel + 3 nights at an average villa

3) Staying 3 nights at small budget hotel + 2 nights at above average villa

I would either do option 1 or 3. It all depends on how good the hotel is on option 1. Moving places in the middle of the trip sounds like a lot of hassle, but I did it a couple of times when in Bali and it's not that bad especially if you have a driver.
