“2nd stay and will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This was our second stay at this hotel and we'll definitely be back because it ticks all the boxes for us. Great staff and service, value for money, beautiful grounds, pool and common areas which were immaculately maintained, a swim up pool bar, day spa, gym, plenty of beds around the pool, great location on the beach and close to shops but still far enough away to be quiet. The rooms are great albeit getting a little dated however you are in no way roughing it and they are immaculately clean, the beds are huge and comfy and the blinds shut to completely block out the light. Food within the resort is also great and breakfast was awesome with an enormous variety to choose from. Special mention to Dede and Lila at La Cucina for their fantastic service. Only fault we had was the free wifi was very slow and didn't always work which meant we frequently had to use the hotel computers for which there was a charge but not a big issue. All in all we love this hotel and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms are our preferred for the view and easy access but if you have poor mobility requ...

Dont look any further this resort has everything you want whilst on your vacation.
Courteous staff, pleasant surrounds, clean rooms, refreshing pool bar yes you can sit at the bar in the pool and enjoy your drinks, good restaurants within the resort, and as for the breakfast it is amazing on some days we find our selves just sitting and chatting for a couple of hours, The staff at the Kartika just can't do enough for you they are all ever pleasing. My only wish is that the wi fi be faster {I did notice a lot of new wi fi upgrades were being carried out} and if possible for those who have to do a little work on vacation that there own wi fi site be available even at extra cost.
The Kartika is located just next to the Discovery shopping Mall, great for the lady's shopping

Room Tip: We always prefer a ocean pool facing room on the second level

The kartika plaza is based in south kuta, so it is just a short walk into the town and the main shops etc, however far enough away not to hear all the nightime antics of drunken australians. The rooms albeit are a bit dated, however all the facilities are immaculate and the staff are always helpful and enthusiastic to organise events for you. The view of the beach is perfect and the breakfasts are always amazing

Room Tip: Try to get a pool or ocean facing room for good views

The staff in this hotel were fantastic. Very friendly, even remembered us and our names from a previous visit. The place is faultless.
My only gripe was the WiFi was very slow and very temperamental.
Breakfast is outstanding....staff amazing...surroundings exquisite...I could have sat at the pool bar all day!!!
Highly recommended

Room Tip: Pool or sea view rooms have best outlook

Just returned from an 8 night stay at Discovery Kartika Plaza for our first time to Bali.

Firstly, the resort is in a great location in Kuta. It is set back off the main road so whilst it is amongst the Kuta buzz, once you are in the resort it is very peaceful, quiet and authentic.
Next door to the discovery shopping centre which we found very handy. It backs on to beach access so no need to cross busy roads to get to the sea. We also used this beach path as an alternative option when walking into central Kuta to avoid the busy street and shop vendors if you need a break. Cheap taxi ride to the airport which was very handy.

Big pool where we spent a lot of time with a big swim up bar and well maintained gardens everywhere. All very relaxing.

We had a ocean view room which was great on level 3. Had everything we needed and was very clean. Nice balcony for relaxing which overlooked the resort pool and gardens and the sea.

All staff were genuinely friendly and very helpful all the time.

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, big selection on offer with variations most days to mix it up for you .
I also recommend the seafood buffet on Friday nights, we did this on our first night and it was a great introduction to the resort. Not only was the buffet great but this included traditional Balinese dance entertainment and music plus some other entertaining surprises.

Overall, we really enjoyed out stay - can't think of anything negative to say about the place and are already recommending it to others.

Room Tip: Ocean View was great for us, over looking the gardens, pool and sea

This was my fourth time to Bali but Discovery Kartika Hotel was in a very convenient location. Since we, my husband and I were planning to veg out this holiday, the hotel was in a good location for that plus the shopping center located right next to the hotel made it nice for us to go shopping and dine out as well.

Room Tip: We stayed at the garden front rooms, very quiet and convenient but if you want to go out to the pool...

This was our 2nd trip staying with the Kartika as part of our Wakatobi dive trips. The pool bar is great. We spent several evenings there. The dinner buffets are OK but no bargain. The rooms were clean and quiet.
The location on the beach is really hard to beat. Beautiful views and close to whatever you want to do.
