“Okay small resort, breakfast not 4 star”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Friendly staff, free wifi, nice clean rooms, small pool, not many beds at pool, although on a busy road it is quiet. No /not much streetnoise at night.. but bit out of the centre. Renting a motorcycle/scoopy makes it a good place to stay. Breakfast is not 4 star.

If you're looking for a great location hotel with great service that's within walking distance of all Seminyak's shopping, restaurants and beaches - this is the good one . They're also great in organizing tour, there is one tour desk available at the front desk ,putting together many good spots that must visit while you are in Bali with very reasonable price and English speaker driver .The pool is lovely too even it is on the area where you will be seen by all guest but very nice & good quality of pool water - get there early if you want a spot in the sun. The rooms are spacious and with little patio . Beach is on short walk , very clean and good for jogging then have morning coffee at restaurant just by the beach . Overall it's a great place for the price, especially in one of Bali's most celebrated neighborhoods where most of hotels are pricy.

It was our first time to Bali and we picked Ivory Resort Seminyak based on reviews on tripadvisor. It was a pleasant experience. The room was clean except for 1 slightly stained bath towel and that unflushable piece of toilet paper everyone seems to be talking about. However, the location of the resort is pretty terrible. Most taxi drivers do not know where this resort is. It is a decent distance to the seminyak square but the roads leading there are so dangerous to walk along. No pavements at all. Just a tiny strip of road that we had to brave ourselves to walk along.
The hotel also provides free shuttle to the airport if your stay is more than 3 nights. Very thankful for that, but perhaps more advertising would be great.
We also received a complimentary 15 minute massage. Our massuer was a newcomer at the resort and he was very friendly and very good at foot massages.

I am about half way through an extended month-long stay at the Ivory (with a few side trips to ubud, Singapore, etc.). This is my first stay at the Ivory but won't be my last. Pak Ketut, Ibu Vyha, Agus, Gede and the rest of the staff have been wonderful hosts. Relaxed but professional and always very helpful. Makes for an enjoyable and stress free stay. Accommodations are well-kept and a good value for money. Hotel is conveniently located in kerobokan near the many restaurants and clubs of seminyak, but the rooms themselves are amazingly quiet due to their location away from the main street. As noted by other guests internet coverage near pool and breakfast area is a bit sketchy but the room coverage is reasonable. Overall big thumbs up!

The place was quite nice, the location was good - not too close to the city centre but close enough. However, when I asked for an Internet password, I was told to try something like "ivory1", "ivory2" and so on until "ivory30", and just use whichever one would allow me to connect. I asked if there was any other way, and he said no. And this had to happen every time I connect.

We booked the Ivory for 7 nights as were not sure if it was going to be the place for us for our 2 weeks in Bali. Staff are pleasant and friendly enough. Location is handy to mini marts and a couple of restaurants. The place was reasonably quiet as far there were no early morning drunken, noisy, ignorant yobbos there. A few things did bother us whilst we were there. The location is okay but there are no footpaths in that part of Petitenget Road, so if you want to go for a decent walk you are flirting with roadside traffic. You are reliant on transport to go to the main shopping and restaurant areas. The hotel shuttle to the main Seminyak area is hit and miss.

As far as the rooms go, they are comfortable and of a reasonable size for two people, with bath/toilet located behind the bed area separated by a robe and utility area. The shower is great . But unfortunately the toilets, like a lot in Bali, don't flush properly. The cistern does not allow the volume of water to flush the pan thoroughly. We improvised by filling a one litre water bottle with top removed to help things move whilst flushing. The swimming pool is big enough but there were signs that cleaning and chlorinating were not performed regularly. Whilst we were there the pool was emptied ( i suspect for cleaning and/or repairs) and re-filled overnight. The big lounge on the porch is comfortable enough, but just a table and 2 chairs would have been sfficient.

The hotel provided a breakfast service but not sure whether it will be a goer when there are better breakfast services across the road at Honey Bees.

We would consider staying there again if the paths were installed on Petitenget Road. The toilets should be upgraded to a more efficient flushing system.

There is nothing to rave about the reception area as it is quite basic with a table and a staff but I have to give a thumb up for the room! The room is modern and lovely and I had no problems with anything. There is a small seating area just outside our small bungalow but if I am not wrong, as we all know, Bali's weather is perfect for the flying insects. Despite that, I was happy with just staying in the room.

The area is somewhat far from the nightlife and the centre of seminyak but hey, you can just hop in any taxi without any problem.

I had a fun time at the pool at night as what I mentioned, it isn't the normal crowded backpacker accommodation. The water at the pool has a reasonable temperature for a good night swim and you will find yourself to be the only few people at the pool. or maybe alone.

I didn't remember us having breakfast in the hotel but there is a nearby café across the road that serves Indonesian /western cuisine.

For a price like this, I think it is an acceptable accommodation and I will probably stay here again.. But then again, there are hundreds of other accommodations on the island to try out! Bali is such a heaven!
