Benoa beach is away for the crowded area in Bali. More suitable for families and people who want to stay in quiet area. Spent a wonderful 1 week in a pool villa. The place is really perfect, nothing to be criticized. Great design, very comfortable, top notch service.
Excellent restaurants and choice and drinks. I highly recommend the freshly squeezed fruits juices. Also interesting the small bar on the beach with a selection of very good paninis.
Just next to the beach, 2 large swimming pools, well equipped for kids. Daily animations available for kids, perfect for families.
The beach is just ok, far from being the best spot in Bali; but good enough to relax. Cleaned everyday by the hotel staff.
In brief, really highly recommended. I would definitely go back at Novotel Benoa.
