“Thankyou Staff at Kumala Pantai for a wonderful holiday and hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2009

We arrived at reception some two hours after we were expected around 2am, to be greated with lovely smiles and a quick checkin - everything was organised and there was no hold ups at all - we were in our rooms within 15 minutes of arriving. This efficiency set the tone for the rest of our stay (12 nights in total). My husband and I had a Deluxe room in B block on the top floor and as organised with the staff prior to our arrival My son and his wheelchair bound partner where given a ground floor room in A Block with a lovely outlook. The extra bed for their young son was also there set up and ready for him to fall into.
The rooms where clean and comfortable and serviced daily. Room service was quick and food always hot. Full buffet breakfast was included in the cost which was about $70/night AUD. I found there was enough of a range for me not to be bored with what was on offer and you could have your eggs done anyway you liked on the spot.
The swimming pools where lovely although my preference was for the larger pool - it was never crowded no matter how many people were there.
I found the staff all friendly and always ready with a quick smile and hello, willing to do whatever they could to make your stay pleasant.
Whilst we were there they were upgrading the pathways to match the newer section of the hotel - at all times they were careful not to let this become a difficulty for people staying in the hotel.
They have recently added spa facilities to this hotel which i used several times. I didn't find them anymore expensive than any of the other quality spa's in the area and the 2 hour relaxation massage was brilliant.
All in all I was extremely pleased with this hotel and thank all previous reviewers for their comments which helped us decide to stay at this hotel.
regards

We were there for 2 nights, the hotel is close to everything. Breakfast is served opposite the beach with a huge variety of food to choose from. The rooms are simple and clean. They have good security around the hotel. The hotel is a walking distance to shops & restaurants. We had a great time staying here!

We were lucky to find this hotel from tripadvisor. We are travelling for a long time and don't want to spend too much on hotels, but since we were in Bali, we wanted to splurge on a beach resort with all the comforts and amenities of a resort. Kumala Pantai fit the bill.

For about $55 USD, we got a spacious room, in a hotel with good service, and a nice pool. The breakfast buffet is also very good. Hot breakfasts with all the juice, breads, and fruits you want (and omelette station too). There is also free wifi in the cafe and you can purchase wifi cards to use the computer in your room.

Don't expect a 5 star resort or a trendy boutique resort. But for a 3-star hotel price, you definetely get your money's worth with a 4 star full-service beach resort type hotel. The service is also great and the people are friendly. It's nice to know that once you have stepped into the confines of the hotel, that you won't be touted or pestered anymore.

As for the area it is located in. It is a bit far from central Kuta (short taxi ride needed) but closer to seminyak (trendy area with good boutiques and restaurants). This may not be the best choice for a bunch of party animals who want to be footsteps away from the pubs and bars, but it is an excellent choice for families and people who don't mind being a little further away with the rest of the larger resorts. It is also right on the beach and directly positioned in front of all the central Kuta surf spots and surf schools

On the word of mouth recommendation of a colleague who managed only to walk through the grounds to inspect, I booked a twin room for my mother and I for three days. Everything was beautiful, clean and orderly. Staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was plentiful and varied- impressive for a 3 star establishment. Although we never used it, the swimming pool looked amazing with lots of shady and sunny spots. The restaurant served reasonably priced, but very tasty meals. Security was very friendly and on constant patrol. My only small gripes were my noisy AC unit and the fact that it would have been handy to have lifts to my third floor room. Less mobile travellers may want to be aware of this when making reservations, it became very difficult for my mother on certain days. Also, the wi-fi was not working while I was there. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this place. It is the perfect location with a great price.

We stayed at the KP for 9 nights after reading the reviews. Our Junior suite in the new S block was beyond our expectations and on first impressions was exceptional value for the money. The rooms were almost new and beautifully appointed, the bedroom was large and very comfortable, the bathroom was also ample size with a double shower and separate bath. There was also a separate living area with 4 plush chairs, a coffee table and dining table. Both rooms opened straight onto one of the magnificent pools complete with swim up pool bar. Having stayed at around a dozen different hotels in Bali I must say that I was somewhat surprised not only by the quality but also the price. We payed about $110 AU per night including breakfast for the room and from that point it was surprisingly good value. Now for the downside..................if only someone would iron out the small things that spoiled the experience.
1. The rooms on the lower level all had a disgusting smell eminating from the drains in the bathroom. Had to burn incence constantly to mask it.
2. The owner of the hotel is apparently a member of the Bali Tango Club and allowed the upper level of the only restaurant in the resort to be used for dance practice regularly. The dance practice music was loud, annoying and competing with the softer music played downstairs. The area was not accessible for hours at a time which is a shame as the view from the upper level is over the beach and the guests were denied the enjoyment.
3.The buffet breakfast was ordinary by Bali standards and the atmosphere and layout of the restaurant was lacking.

We have mixed feelings about the experience and would say despite the quality of the rooms and the grounds felt that the small things let them down.

We stayed 6 nights at the Kumala Pantai. Having stayed earlier at the Jayakarta (practically nnext door) we would rate the Kumala Pantai much higher. Whilst similar the pools are better and the breakfast is much better. Only one complaint is that they should invest in a better quality of linen - both towels and sheets. The Junior Siute is a bargain. At 950,000 rp/nite (about US$90) with two rooms a huge bathroom and a patio three steps from the pool it was fantastic. Position is unbeatable with easy access to shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Stayed at Kumala Pantai Hotel in February 2009 (old wing) This is the 3rd time we have satyed there and in the old wing. it was again a pleasure to stay there as the hotel , pool and all staff are remarkably very friendly and helpfull. The new wing pool and bar are great as we had a choice of 2 pools with the connecting hotel. There new massage and beauty centre is a big winner and we used it often, although more expensive than on the street it was more of a professional option as the staff are well trained.

Well Recommended for all ages.
