“Retreat within Kuta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Kuta is such a busy place that it is nice to find a quiet place to relax. Bali Dynasty is excellent for families although couples etc would probably find it rather hectic. The highlight is probably the pool areas where the adult pool with swim up bar is separated from the children's pools complete with water slides to suit all ages and a myriad of water toys for the younger ones. The rooms are comfortable without being elaborate; the food is good and the location is well placed. They also cater for weddings which are truly lovely both in the garden settings and in the reception afterwards. There are several eating areas scattered throughout the venue with a wide selection of food and drinks on offer. The rear opens out onto the beach and is accessible from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden area as the outer rooms only look over a driveway and the next...

Just spent 10 nights October 14 to 24. This is the 4th time we have stayed. Our kids are 9 and 11 and they love all the activities around the pools (there are 3 pools).56m waterslide, water playground, Volleyball, Highest splash comps, water aerobics, frog races, bingo etc. We stayed in a family pool view room located on the ground floor. Would highly recommend if you like lots of atmosphere when sitting outside your room. Staff are fantastic around the pool and in H20 restaurant. They get to know you by name. Very friendly and good service. Huge selection at the buffet breakfast. Theme night dinners are great. We did the hotels Village Walk tour. It was Fantastic! Your guide takes you to a local village, community hall and a school. Only took about an hour. There are plenty of adults only areas too (bars, lazy pool, H20 Upper deck if you don't have kids. Although it really excels at catering for kids. We can not fault this resort. Cant wait to return.....

Room Tip: Family Pool and Family Garden view rooms are the same inside. Both on ground floor. Love the pool v...

We just returned from spending 3 nights here with our children who are 5 and 9 years old. We had a lovely stay and our kids loved it. We had a "family garden suite" which has a partition and bunk beds (with their own tv & dvd player) on one side. The room was very comfortable and just right for our family. The water playground was enjoyed greatly by the kids.

There were children everywhere. There were some adult only areas (like the bars, a lazy pool and the spa). This hotel is not as luxuriously spread out as say the Ritz or Hyatt in Nusa Dua. There is a lot going on in their space. That said, being in the centre of town and near a mall, shops, outside restaurants has a certain charm of its own. Plus, our 9 year old loved the trapeze lessons (very physically demanding) and the 5 year old had her hair braided into the most beautiful corn rows on the beach. (About 70 of them!). The beach outside isn't bad.

I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with young children- the younger the better. For a couple with older children, or without children, there might be more interesting options elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a family room or kids suite. They are on the ground floor, slightly larger and have bunk be...

Thank you for your review following your visit to our resort. I was pleased to learn that you had an enjoyable stay with us in particular the kids enjoyed the Kids Water Fun Zone and the Trapeze.

Although we are a very popular resort with families we still endeavour to cater for couples without children or traveling with older children. We do have “the Den” the facility dedicated for teenagers aged 13 – 19 years old where they can meet and make new friends.

Thanks again for your review and I do hope that we will have the opportunity to welcoming you back on your next visit to Bali!

What can I say, we have already booked our return for next year!!. Our stay was everything we could want in a resort.Nestled in busy Kuta,close to everything, shopping, great restaurants,once in the resort u where in another world. Scenic, clean, and simply the nicest staff available. They catered to our every need. The Buffet was fantastic, both for breakfast, and dinner, with great themed nights, Mexican was our favourite. The rooms were spacious, clean, the kids loved having bunk beds, and our garden terrace was a delight. It was truley amazing.

Stayed here for 3 nights after spending 5 nights in a villa in Seminyak
Still prefer Seminyak but as far as resorts go the Dynasty is very good with plenty of things to do and in a great location just down from Waterbom park.
Staff are first class and the breakfast offers plenty to choose from.
Upgraded to and Executive suite, which, with a separate living room from the bedroom was a good idea.
If a family resort is what you are after, the Dynasty is a great choice.

1st time to Bali and Dynasty and will be back.

Great hotel for family - stayed in pool suite 129 and wasnt too noisey in the morning and our kids 9 and 10 could sleep until 7.30 no problems before it got too loud - they are early rises anyway.

Room was gd and only complaint wad a musty smell when you 1st got in and cleaner tried to find reason but couldn't so put some incense to burn which helped a little.

H20 great place to eat and buffet breakfast perfect - not over whelming but enough to get something you like.

In Phuket last year we had a 1,000,000 choices at breakfast and it was just too much - Dynasty catered for Aussie market so it was perfect.

M and M spa just outside with Mary great choice for massage and braiding - friends with a friend of mine in Adelaide so went to see her.

All in all a great place and will be back.
