“We just had breakfast here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

We just had breakfast here,it was very good.
Cost 168000 rp each. Food was fresh and service is great! We would like to however stay here to see what it would be like. It looks like a very busy hotel but would like to see what the rooms are like. Pool area looks nice. Plastic sun lounges look like they need updating. But we would like to try this hotel out.
Thank you

Eleven items of expensive clothing were stolen from my room at this hotel. Whilst we were at the front counter to let management know there was another couple complaining of theft from their room. When the hotel was informed of the theft the Manager organised for the cleaners to come to the room. There was no helpful outcome from this meeting and the hotel manager, Apri, offered no further assistance. We decided to go to the police to report the theft for insurance and after insisting that the hotel pay for the taxi as a sign of good will a security officer from the hotel travelled behind the taxi. This whole affair was not handled nicely and the staff bordered on rudeness and were completely disinterested. It was the last night and day of the holiday and it left a bad feeling as we wasted a lot of time following this theft up. A fax was sent to the hotel General Manager who has at this time not bothered to reply.

Room Tip: There are thieves at this hotel, look after your gear in your room.

I have visted few different hotels in Bali with my wife and Discover kartika experiece surpasses all. One of the best location for resorts in Bali. Few people may think its overvalued but every single penny is worth. Staff is bit slow but main reason is the resort is very big and they are understaffed. Poolbar and swimming pool is just to die for. Sea side restaurant and sitting is next best thing you can experience. It is bang on Kuta beach and Kartika mall is walking distance 3 mins. Awesome food joints, clubs, shopping centers in nearby area. So if you are looking for fun stay we will recommend this for sure. All rooms are good, we stayed in Ocean facing view. Its just amazing. Will surely re-visit.

Room Tip: Ocean facing

highly recommend the discovery kartika plaza hotel. The staff were so courteous and polite and couldnt do more for you. The rooms were clean and comfortable and a pleasant surprise. T views from the room made you feel your in a tropical paradise and the location was perfect right next door to the kartika plaza, also within walking distance to so much more shopping. Apart from shopping, however just staying in the resort would be holiday enough. several restaurant to choose from in the hotel its self with entertainment most nights. loved the the facials in the spa, i would definitely recommend them looked 10 years younger worth going back to bali for them alone.
What i was especially impressed with was through my lack of concentration i left my bag in the taxi when i was dropped off at the hotel. thanks to the wonderful detective work from the security personnel at the hotel they looked at the ct scans and they got the number of the licence plate of the blue bird taxi , tracked it down with the help of the police and the taxi company and my bag with its contents was returned to me.
I would definitely feel safe and comfortably staying at this hotel when i go back to bali.
couldnt recommend the hotel high enough for all it has to offer.
a beautiful balinese lady told me to drink the coconut drinks at the pool served in a coconut shell one a day stops any tummy problems. My mother and i did and we were fine the whole trip. looking forward to going back soon. jennifer and my mother maureen.

Right in the heart of kuta where we stayed for 3 weeks here and we found the hotel to be pretty good. Our room had a balcony and when you stood on the balony, you looked straight ahead and out to the ocean!. Below our balcony, we stood looking down at the gardens and part of the hotels restaurant. Again, if you looked outward to the sea, you saw the pool just b4 the ocean view. The pool is enormous! and has a swim up to the bar in the pool. Pretty kool. There is also 3 seperate areas that you can eat at and all three has different menus to choose from. Our accomodaiton also came with breakfast each day. Breakfases were great! Fresh juices squeezed! and you could choose a western brekky to asian brekkys. The chef was always there waiting to serve up your eggs and wld ask how you wanted your eggs cooked and wld cook them on the spot while u watched. Our room was very spacious and included your own combinaiton lock to the safe in your room. Gym is provided, you had a pianoist who played at the bar and all other amenities were all in close walking proximity. Overall rating is 'E' for Excellence!!

Room Tip: Higher floors seemed to be quiet for us. However, did not stay on any other level so don't real...
