Excellent hotel, a few mins in a cab to center of Kuta. Tranquil and modern. Very helpful staff with excellent spa, a good breakfast, free wifi and prefect rooms.

Happy to recommend and will stay again when in Bali.

Contrary the the previous reviewer, this hotel is in a good location, just far enough from the centre of the Kuta hustle and bustle which is very noisy! You can walk to the heart of Kuta or the beach in about 15 minutes, or pay only $2-$3 for a taxi ride (recommended at night because of dodgy footpaths).
All staff are incredibly friendly, a decent breakfast selection (they can make omelettes, crepes and pancakes infront of you).
The room was small but clean. Comfortable beds. Impressed by the number of TV channels and free mini bar which includes soft drink, juice, nuts and chocolate and is refilled daily.
The pool was clean and enjoyable. Not enough sun lounges however, never was able to get one and we stayed while it was very quiet.
The hotel decor is an eclectic mix of modern and vintage, very interesting! Didn't get to eat dinner at the restaurant, however had cake and coffee at the cafe which was perfect.
Would recommend if you can get a room at a special rate like we did, isn't worth the full standard price. It was perfect for the two of us as it was on the small side and quiet. Wouldn't be suitable for families with kids.

We left and went back to our first hotel after just a few hours.

This is in the middle of NOWHERE. I have no idea why it's so highly rated. I had actually checked just how far from Kuta it was and was told a few minutes.

Unless you have a car you are completely dependent on taxi's, which you have to call, you can't just wander out to the street because it's so remote.

Staff were rude and Manager told me 'it's not MY problem it's yours' when I tried to address issue, and then said I can use his phone but they'll add it to my bill.

Breakfast was in 2 rooms, no-one welcomed us or explained. They had no fruit, no juice and no pastries left and weren't willing to offer anything else even though it was only 9am.

The rooms are TINY. We had a twin and felt like sardines when the luggage came in.

Absolutely shameful. AVOID.

Room Tip: Just go to another hotel!

My first visit to Bali & staying at Fontana was a great choice. Location is not near the beach so if that's what you're there for, Fontana might not be the place for you. I like being close to the action but not in it. The hotel is just a short taxi ride to everything & the staff are very friendly & do go out of their way to assist you with a big smile. The breakfast spread was very large & full of variety. There were Asian (fried rice, fried noodles, soup, curry & BBQ chicken, egg rolls, vegetables, etc) & western (eggs, toast, fruits, muffins, bagels, sausages, etc) style breakfast choices so I did stuff myself quite a bit before a long day of sightseeing. I personally loved the "create your own omelette & crepe". I didn't have much free time & everyone tells me I have to do a massage in Bali, so decided to do the zen spa treatment at the hotel. It was very relaxing & just what I needed after a long day out. Last appointment is at 9pm so schedule it before you start the day is best if you're interested. I was very impressed with the decor. The open lobby with the bar & lounge feels very welcoming & a great place to hang out. I didn't have time to use the pool but from the look, very clean & surrounded by greens so you feel like your in a secluded area. Hope to test that out next time. Fontana is definite a hotel filled with 5 star amenities but at reasonable price. One more thing, my room had a personal safe which I was able to use & the drinks & food in the refrigerator are all complimentary that the hotel replenish daily. Big plus in my book!

I was at Fontana for 3 nights and it have a very good breakfast.The staff is friendly and you receive some extra amenities in your room...but the hotel is far from all the things in Kuta or Legian and you need a car ou a taxi for all. The pool and gym close very early ay 07:00 pm(maybe 10:00 pm is a good time to close) and the massage is very very expansive than the similar like you find in Kuta.

We had a wonderful experience in this Hotel in Bali (between Kuta and Seminyak area). First of all the location is great. Away from the noisy Kuta but within few minutes taxi ride of Kuta and Seminyak. Staff is very friendly and helpful all the time. Hotel is new and very modern and built in Balinese style. Rooms are big and comfortable with a nice bathroom. Mini-bar (no alcoholic drinks) is included and renewed every day. Pool area not very big but very nice and integrated in the hotel. Breakfast buffet is huge and food is very tasty. At the reception they really take care of all our questions and doubts. You get a discount voucher when checking in for the Spa which is in the top floor of the hotel (I highly recommend doing the 2 hours Massage and hot stones treatment). We felt very comfortable during our stay in the Fontana hotel.

Room Tip: There are one or two rooms per floor without balcony. When doing the reservation ask for one with ba...
