“Nice pool and garden horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2010

The best thing is the garden and pool, room decoration is old and dated, bathroom really really dirty. Strangely sense of service is inexisting

A wonderful hidden treasure..we had booked to stay at the Laghawa hotel in sanur originally but when we arrived it was dirty, very run down and the pool had no water in it. disgusted we left and asked a taxi driver to take us to other hotels that we knew, after 2 hours of getting the answer "no room at the Inn" the taxi driver offered to show us Taman Agung..it was love at first site...beautiful , clean, friendly perfect location, peaceful yet close to everything..loved it !!!

We stayed in a privately owned apartment in this hotel, but I saw the rooms and experienced the same service as guests, so feel qualified to write a review!

The location is great - slap bang in the middle of the action in Sanur and a short walk to the beach.

The hotel itself is quiet, attractive and friendly. The gardens are really lovely. The pool isn't huge, but adequate. I didn't eat their breakfast so can't comment, but it seemed pretty popular. Most of the guests were Europeans.

The only criticism I'd make is that they were stingy with towels. If you wanted more than two per room they weren't too happy! Other than that it was great and I plan to stay there again.

I stayed twice at Taman Agung in 2005 and again 2007 for a total of 40 days and had a lovely relaxing break.

The staff are really kind and provide great service. The rooms are good value and fairly spacious with private balcony/terrassa. And the garden is large with an excellent swimming pool (and pool bar)

I really like the Sanur area in Bali as its more quiet and although Taman Agung hotel is not right on the beach it is only 5 minute walk on the main road in Sanur. However, it has a long driveway and the hotel is well shielded from noise and feels like peaceful oasis.

I would love to go back someday.

Taman Agung is located on the East side of the island away from the busy streets of Kuta.

The actual hotel is on a busy street in Sanur however the hotel is located further down its drive way so it is very peaceful. The hotel name itself I think means beautiful garden and its gardens were really stunning. The moment you enter the drive way its beauty takes over. It has a hindu temple and little statues here and there that you come across everywhere. I found some of our best memories walking to and from our room. The exterior of the buildings are very lovely and I would recommend to hire the bottom rooms because of its lovely exotic patio (extremely pretty at night). This hotel is often chosen by the Indonesian people to stay (proves they know the best places).

Pool - The pool however is very small and doesn't have a swim up bar (as you see in the pictures) or at least does not have it anymore. However it is very clean and has a pretty dolphan fountain. There is a sitting area where you can sit and even order from the restaurant to eat there. There is a few deck chairs around the pool for lazing around.

Room - We hired a Deluxe room so to have airconditioning which wasn't that much extra. We stayed for 10 night and all it cost us was $500 AUD. We were on the top floor so we had a balcony which was very nice and peaceful. The only downer about the room was that the bathroom looks like a hospital although very clean.

Staff & Service - The staff were all very friendly and always dresses in traditional balinese dress. Their English was quite good too. They always have smiles on their faces which I found hard to get out of most of the Balinese people. Check in was very quick, easy and they even showed us to our room. The hotel maids always gave us a nice smile as well. The only problem was that one of the maids mistaken my small face towel as their own and took it. I asked for it back but as it was white and of the same size as theirs it was kind of like looking for a needle in a hay stack. It didn't bother me too much because it was only a cheap one. The next day after our check into the hotel staff offered us a list of activities for us to do. You can also hire a scooter from the hotel which was really fun.

Restaurant - We only ever ate at the restaurant for breakfast which was nice. The restaurant is directly above the reception and is sort of like a balcony, which has a nice view of the hotel. It is decorated in full Balinese style which is so lovely.

Location - The location of this hotel is perfect if you are looking at being far away from the busyness like at Kuta. The hotel claims to be a beach inn however it takes about 15 minutes to reach it (casual walk) and when you get there it isn't very swimmable. There is still some little shops around including the little side stalls and the people that are selling stuff are just as bad as the ones in Kuta 'You buy you buy!'. Always remember to haggle or you will get ripped off! There is a mall not too far away that sells lots of cheap food but everything else there is exactly the same stuff as the street stales but even more expensive. There are a few bars here and there although not as booming as Kuta's they are quite easy going and there are countless beautiful restaurants where the food is alright and cocktails very yummy.

If you are looking for a holiday in Bali with a beautiful beach I recommend you hire a hotel which has a private beach otherwise you will get bombarded with people trying to sell you stuff and give you messages. Also the water is filled with rubbish e.g noodle packets and wrappers.
