“Great escape for Nyepi day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Enjoyed my Nyepi Day at this hotel, stayed here for 3D2N, and all is good. I've got connecting room, room was very nice, clean, and i love the decoration. Bed and bathroom was have no problems.
I do love their swimming pool in rooftop, this facilities is excellent value for us, because we can see what really happened when Nyepi from rooftop, the road was empty and silent, there was no flight or anything coming.
Their breakfast was great! i love their menu.
Quite strange, that the mobile network when i was in rooms was not good, appeared SOS.. it was happened to my roomy as well. They provide wifi connection, but it was bad also. The staff was have no idea, hence we hope they will check this issue and can explain well to guest.

Dear Amelup,

Thank you so much for staying with us during NYEPI Day (The Silent Day). We have noted your positive feedback about our room and our outdoor SKYPool.

Following your concern over the signal of cellphone network, We had indeed issues back then with the BTS operators, which was rarely happened, but it was only temporary as it was resume back to normal afterwards.

In regards to the WiFi internet, we use Internet bandwidth of 2Mbps ratio 1:1 in our hotel, this should covers the needs for our guests, but we apologize that you have had bad experience to get the connection back then and the staff was unable to assist. We are really sorry this, as limited staff was in charge during Nyepi Day, especially our IT person is Balinese and he was not at the hotel to assist you at that time.

We are happy to re-invite you again to come and stay with us, and will surely do our best to make improvements on our services.

Yours sincerely,

The Management

This hotel was very central. It was about 4 stories high. Had been renovated by the looks of it. Nice decor, nice big beds. Lovely rooftop pool. Fabulous buffet breakfast in the morning, & excellent service. There was building going on next door but that is probably why we got a scoopon for $200 each for 5 nights. Couldnt fault it!

i stayed here for 3 nights. i got a good room with big windows on the ground floor. i read a lot of people write a review that a lot of rooms in this hotel have no windows. so, i suggest you request the room with windows.

the hotel provide free wi-fi and i have no problem with it. The food for breakfast is still OK, but they don't have many choices for breakfast. The location is a plus. you can walk just in minutes to one big mall, Discovery. a lot of choices of food near hotels. and the beach is so close to the hotel. the beach located at the back of the hotel

the room is clean with wood parquet flooring. the bed is so so. not really good. they provide 32 inch LCD TV in room.

The rooftop swimming pool is awesome. you still can see the ocean and the airport from there :)

what impressed me is the service. the staff was helpful. after 3 nights stay my wife and i move to ubud, we rent a motorbike, so we cannot bring a lot of stuffs, so i need to put my extra bags at the hotel so we can pick the bags up later. and it's ok with them. they take good care our bags :) and not just that, after we come back from ubud, we are wet because of raining while we are on the motorbike. again, we ask the staff for help by letting my wife take a shower at the hotel and the staff let my wife take a shower at the spa. they do extra miles for their customer. we really appreciate that.

Stayed her for 1 night. It feels a bit like staying in a bunker. Many of the rooms do not have a window, which feels a bit claustofobic. Staff is friendly. Location is convenient if you want to be close to the airport.

For what we paid, this place couldn't be faulted. The rooms have been renovated and while they bear no resemblance to anything Indonesian, they were clean and nice. The not downside for us was getting a room on the ground floor right next to the restaurant so when guests walked down the hall, we heard everything! Probably found have asked for another room, but it wasn't that much of a big deal. Breakfast buffet was satisfactory and there's a nice little cafe around the corner that does awesome nasi goreng. A short walk away is the green garden Bali spa - best value massage in Kuta, and then the tuban/south Kuta beach front. Cheap laundry across the road, $3AUD a kilo from memory. And the little tour desk across the road is very helpful too - ask for Wayan, a young kid who'll look after you! The staff were helpful and assisted me in getting my mate from the airport, but it took a lot of asking and I wasn't really sure they understood what I wanted, but we got her in the end! Simple, cheap, don't expect the ritz and you'll be happy staying here.

Booked this hotel for our week long holiday and were quite pleased with our choice.
The hotel is located very close to the airport (less than 5 minites drive with no traffic). The lobby is nice and petit with a charming ambience.
Our room (Executive) was decently sized for two. However if you have more than 3 bags, it'll be a challenge to arrange them without bumping into one of them! Being a boutique hotel, they do have some limitations on what is offered, but what's offered is quite sufficient if you're not planning to stay in the room all day. The breakfast spread may seem limited at first glance, but trust me, it's quite more than enough if you don't plan to binge on variety.
The main Kuta beach is about a 10-15 min walk away, but you don't really realize how time flies cause there are so many mini shops, massage parlours and restaurants along the way to keep you occupied.
I'd recommend that you hunt for their internet offers to get a good deal on your rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room and spring a tad more for the Executive and above range of rooms. Some roo...

Dear NeoAaragoom,

Thank you for staying with us and provide us with your details valuable experience during your recent visit in February 2013.

We learnt some points of improvements from your comments and we will take it as our constructive feedback. First on the extra storage for the luggages and of course the variety of breakfast buffet. However we're glad that above all that, you appreciate our services and enjoy the hotel much during your week long holiday in Bali.

We certainly hope you that we may see you again on your next Bali Holiday visit. You are correct that we do heavy promotions on our internet web rate, we would also recommend this to all our guests!

Yours sincerely,

The price I got was very reasonable and I found the service to be very good. A nice location near the airport which has its upsides and downsides as with any location. It is a good place to get driven to other locations as you can get out to the main roads faster but you have to walk further to get to Kuta beach. The beer garden was good and the rooftop pool was fun. The room service was good and quite speedy, the front desk was helpful. The room was cleaned very nicely and I enjoyed having the safe and fridge. The minibar prices were reasonable for a hotel minibar. On the more negative side there was a faint smell of smoke even though it was a non-smoking room and the room's walls could absorb a little more noise. Also the rooftop bar was not in service but considering it was not their ON season this was understandable.

I think taking price into consideration this was a great place to stay. I have traveled pretty widely staying in the more budget conscious end of hotels and this place was one of the best of that class I have stayed in. I would recommend it to someone looking for good but reasonably priced hotel.
