“Tranquil Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

The Astari was the perfect escape for us after 4 days in the hustle and bustle of Legian/Kuta. The room was beautifully decorated and clean. It seemed, for the most part, like we were the only guests at the hotel at times because we had the pool to ourselves. It was perfect. The breakfasts were excellent and the staff were very helpful. They arranged shuttles for us going anywhere we wanted to go at a reasonable price. I would definitely come back to the Astari again.

The only recommendation I would make would be to provide guests with more information about the local area. We got a hotel shuttle to the Rock Bar at 5pm one day which meant we were far too late to get it. It might have been nice for the hotel to suggest we head there earlier. A very minor issue though.

We stayed six nights at Astari in Nov 2013. It is a very quite, pleasant and relaxing place. We had a suite room (207) in upper floor overlooking the pool and the garden. The hotel is reasonably new and the room was very spacious, clean, modern and tastefully furnished. Bathroom was excellent with hot water with good pressure. The balcony was big enough and great place to sit in the evening. The staff was absolutely great, helpful and friendly. We had a mechanical issue with our rental car and the lady at the reception talked to the rental people (in Bahasa Indonesia) to explain the problem. There were sets of breakfast menus (I think there were three) and could be selected/ordered night before and will be served as room service or at the small restaurant at the pool. The breakfast was average.

The hotel offered a free shuttle service to specific places in Jimbaran area at specific times. It will be a good idea to have a rental car or scooter if you want to be more flexible with your trips to restaurants or beach in and around Jimbaran. Other option is getting a taxi. It takes about 15-20 minutes to/from Airport by car depending on the traffic. Hotel also provide airport pick-up/drop off at a price of USD15 (one way).

The room had a small kitchenette with a kitchen sink, small refrigerator and enough cupboards. What we missed was a microwave and some plates/cutlery.

We had a great, relaxing time there really enjoyed our stay at Astari.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days in December. The room was very spacious, and it had a nice balcony which overlooked the pool. The hotel offer a shuttlebus service to Jimberan beach and Kuta. The staff were extremely helpful.

We stayed in 2 bedroom villa for 3 days.Might be an idea place in summer/dry season but not a place for winter, as bathrooms etc are out side rain pouring in floors very wet , making bit very dangerous at night Furniture in open areas very damp and extremely dirty.
A feral cat had taken residence and was impossible to get rid of, it was incontinent of urine and other body fluids all over furniture and beds/i woke to find the cat on my bed inches away from my
face, it had been incontinent on my bed
.Food, utensils , clothing etc were all soiled by the cat , several times the cat had to be doused with water to get rid of it /but to no avail it just returned.
Management were informed of the problem , but did very little to rectify the situation, after my insistence they gave us free transport into Kuta for 1 and airport for 1
The breakfast can only be described as memorable as it was not for human consumption , I doubt if the cat would have eaten it./we dined at Jimbaran corner most days .
Not the restful 3 days planned by by travelling companion as a surprise Not the hidden paradise described by fellow travelers.I have been travelling to Bali for many years, and have stayed at some wonderful places,both budget and luxurious so I qualify to say Atari is less than budget at a luxury price .

Room Tip: Do stay there, plenty of better budget hotels

We stayed at The Astari during our trip to Bali and found that everything about the hotel was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very spacious and clean, overlooking the pool. Breakfast was great, we could choose from different breakfast sets. The atmosphere at the hotel was calm and serene.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel in October, 2013 and we loved it. The room was clean and comfortable and looked almost new. It was such a welcome place to be after a long day of sightseeing. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. My wife availed herself of a massage on the premises and said it was first rate. Their shuttle to the beach at Jimbaran is a plus because it is a bit of a walk to get there. However, we enjoyed the fact that it is away from the bustle of Jimbaran and it is so peaceful. The included breakfast was just fine, perfect for our needs. Hopefully, a room will be available to us again on our next trip to Bali.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor at the end of the hotel. It is the quietest one, I think, because n...
