My daughter and I stayed here for 2D1N prior to our departure from Bali because we spent most of our time in Candidasa. I booked directly online and prepaid for my stay.
Location: The hotel is on Jalan Cartika in Tuban, about 5 minute walk to Lippo Mall. The Kuta Beach is within easy reach, about a 5 minute drive by taxi.
Check-in/check-out: +++ Efficient, prompt and gracious. Allowed us to our room even though we were dropped off at the hotel in mid-morning. Called for the airport shuttle as soon as the check-out process was completed.
Room: ++ Spacious with 2 twin-sized beds. Clean. Good widescreen TV with HBO and Fox premium movies plus other channels. Spacious shower and toilet. Provided robes and slippers for guests! Minimal bath amenities. Room A/C unit a bit noisy but no noise from the street even though our room was on the street side. One big negative, however, was that the room had nuisance flies. (Had to request for bug spray but did not eliminate them completely.)
Breakfast: +++ Included in the room price and food was tasty. We had a Balinese menu on the buffet that morning (fresh fruit, porridge, nasi goreng Bali, mie goreng, chicken in ginger sauce, Balinese omelette, Bali coffee, tea, mango juice, fresh milk and cereal). You can request for eggs cooked any style as well as beef bacon (toast, jelly and butter available in the buffet).
Facilities: Skytop pool is excellent! Lounge chairs around the pool were very comfortable. Swam in the evening and felt quite relaxed under the full moon and stars. The view of the city was worth the climb. The Japonica spa is well-configured, with two massage rooms and a room for hand/foot treatments.
Service: The staff were all professional in both dress and demeanor. They were gracious and courteous, promptly delivering the service (even with some embarrassment when they delivered bug spray to my room). Management went out of their way to accommodate my request for a masseur because hotel has masseuses only available in the spa. (Suksema Eko, Nita and Made!!!)
Highly recommended for weekend stays in the Tuban-Kuta-Legian area of Bali. Airport shuttle service was the best amenity for us!
