We stayed at Umalas Hotel & Residence last week (Nov 15th - 18th) for 3 nights. I was quite impressed with the amenities that the hotel provided. Although the location in not a usual place where you can find 4 storey apartments. Since we came with our own car, the parking lot is quite spacious too and the security staffs were very friendly.
We are staying at 2 bedroom deluxe apartment (1 double bed room & 1 twin beds room). We specifically requested an apartment at ground floor and if possible to have the most easiest access to the pool. And we did!
We stayed at Room 1007 and was probably the most strategic room location in the entire hotel. it was so close to the pool & the towel counter and also the additional elevator to go to the roof top restaurant where we had the breakfast, was right next to the room. Very convenience.
I am so happy the the management of the hotel really took notice to our requirement.
When we entered our apartment, it was the dining room right next to the living room. which were quite spacious rooms. We have trouble looking for the kitchenette equipment at first because they weren't any. (it was quite strange because there were this big refrigerator and stove.) But when we call the housekeeping, they send you they provide us with frying pan, chopped base, knife & a medium pan with a stir at no time.
The rooms are quite spacious. The master bedroom where quite big and completed with a clean private bathroom with standing shower. the other room (twin beds) has to go to another bathroom that located right between the living room and the dining room. Which is close by to the room's door.
The downside was the master bedroom's bathroom was a bit smelly. so we have to turn on the exhaust fan all the time.
The balcony/terrace, although there was no direct path to the pool, is facing the pool. and it became a good spot to monitor the kids while they were swimming. But the trees in front of the pool need a trimming a little bit, it became a little jungle in front of the terrace.
The breakfast was ok. we became a bit bored with the same menus every morning. There were always a time in every breakfast where we have to wait for a kitchen to refill the food.
The management should put a little more attention to the menu variation of the breakfast.
In the other hand, if you ordered menus from the room service, the foods were delicious! we once ordered a fried rice & a fettuccine carbonara and the food were very yummy.
Although the hotel location is not very near to the beach and a little far away from hustle Seminyak. Overall our stay at the hotel was quite good. we were happy with the overall experience.
