“Relaxed and Pampered”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We spent six nights at the Centra Taum and wished we had more nights to enjoy the ambience of this peaceful , relaxed, hotel. The apartment was clean well serviced. The staff were courteous and very obliging. The food was excellent. One of the dining room staff by the name of Nevi went out of her way to accommodate our needs. Nevi explained the food the customs the culture and made us feel so welcome every day she was there. Would we go back? You bet and we would love to see Nevi again she was the icing on the cake. Thankyou

Room Tip: We had a duplex suite which had two bathrooms a lovely kitchen ( not that we used it hotels food too...

First off let me thank all the staff at Centra Taum who have made by 4D3N stay very enjoyable. Service was top notch from the start with the airport pickup all the way to departure.

The hotel itself is really nice, with most of the furnishings visibly new and modern. We took the Studio - which is a duplex unit (sleeps 3 and 2 bathrooms) and a different twist to a standard hotel room. The room had a full-sized fridge, kitchen that you could actually cook in, plates with metal forks and spoon, and could actually sleep 3 if someone was wiling to sleep on a sofa bed downstairs. The pool was spacious and never over-crowded with enough deck chairs. Restaurant was reasonably priced and again, service was amazing. Breakfast and lunch was really tasty as well.

The hotel had a very boutique-style ambience which I loved, it felt like home, serene and relaxing. Wifi was abundant throughout the room and all areas of the hotel. There were complimentary fruits when we arrived (although we didn't eat it - sorry!) and the hotel was able to check us in early at 1:30PM with no issue.

Special shoutout to Gadik and Tina, lovely people who remembered us by name and really made the stay an amazing one.

On improvements I think the sofa in the 'living room' of the studio (Room 126) wasn't very comfortable (as it is a sofa-bed convertible). Repairs and maintenance could also look at the shower - as upstairs shower is unusable due to extremely low water pressure. Downstairs rain-shower made really loud and weird sounds when its turned on. The lack of any door hooks / towel racks seems like a oversight as the wooden rack is more aesthetic than functional.

The spa could also be larger. I recommend that you book your spa before your flight - as the spa can only accommodate two at any given time, the earliest spot we could get the moment we arrived was on the 3rd day evening. That said, the spa was reasonably priced, really good massage and scrub that you really don't need to go outside to get a good massage.

Location wise its not walkable to anything much- the location on Google maps is incorrect. its actually more accurate at " -8° 40.608', 115° 9.558' ". The front deck was happy to call taxis for us and the taxi rates are reasonable, although we found ourselves paying the minimum 25,000 Rupiah (RM7 / USD 2) more often due to the close-but-not-so-close location of the hotel. Min charge of 25k applies if the taxi is called by phone, doesn't apply if you hail one.

Nonetheless, thank you Centra, and your excellent staff who have made our stay very enjoyable. Needless to say, I highly recommend this place.

My fiance and I went to Bali for a holiday and we decided to spent 4D3N at Centra Taum Seminyak. It was more than what we expected. It was very peaceful and has a serene ambience. The room that we stayed in was spacious, clean, modern and we love it. The internet (Wifi) connection was good and their services are excellent. They have friendly staffs who can speak in both English and Malay languages. They were also very helpful in helping us taxi when we wanted to go sight-seeing. However, in my opinion the hotel could improve in their menus. The reason being, we had our breakfast at the hotel for 4 days (as included in the our holiday package), and almost everyday, their menus for breakfast are the same. Only 1 or 2 dishes are changed and the rest are the same. By the 4th day of our holiday, we were tired of the same food. If the hotel could change their menus everyday. I think this is one of the best hotel to go to when staying in Bali. For a 3 star hotel, this hotel is fantastic. i would like to go to this hotel again in my future visits to Bali.

Room Tip: The rooms are spacious and clean

We spent the long weekend deepavali break in centra. Flight was 2.5hours from kota kinabalu (Malaysia)- our first trip to bali. Even though we had to wait for 1.5hours at the airport upon arrival (driver thought our flight was in domestic terminal), the rest of our stay at centra was stupendous. There was a fruit plate in our room. We went on a full day car charter to a volcano, had dinner at jimbaran beach. One early morning before it got too hot, we went for a walk to the beach. The beach seems endless n clean. There was Beginner surfers classes. We slept very well, swam in the pool , used the gym. We wanted to book the spa massage offer but it was fully booked. We went for a joy ride on the shuttle on the last day to see the routing. Had set lunch (included in our room package) before departing to the airport. We are actually thinking of returning back with the rest of the family sometime next year if there is still a direct flight. We are back to the daily grind... with lovely memories of our short break at centra.

Dear likasfam,

Greetings from "Island of the God" BALI !

Thank you very much for your review and comments on Trip Advisor after your first visit to Centra Taum Seminyak, Bali.

I am delighted to note that you enjoyed your stay with us and I am glad to know that your short break at Centra Taum Seminyak was full of lovely memories.

I apologize for the miss – pick up, I have already investigated and it was true that our driver has been waiting for you in the domestic terminal. As for the spa which was fully booked, I also would like to apologize since our space is limited but to avoid this in the future, I suggest you to book a day before by dial ext 1.

Thank you for having stayed with us, and we all look forward to the opportunity of again welcoming you and your family back to Centra Taum Seminyak, Bali.

I didn't expect much when my gorgeous friend, Natasha recommended Centra Taum Seminyak as a place to stay during our recent trip to Bali (I've stayed in a luxury villa just few months before in Bali). We stayed in room #115. However, I was completely surprised with the excellent hospitality and ambience. The only setback is the unstable internet (wifi) connection and maintenance of the gym equipment (a treadmill was out of order). And the Spa has limited Staffing. There were 3 of us so 1 of us didn't get to pamper herself.

Nonetheless, I had a great stay and will definitely recommend Centra Taum Seminyak to my friends when they visit Bali. Can't Wait to go back in March'14.

The hotel was exactly as we had thought and perfect for what we were looking for.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment.

The complexes are large and modern. Fantastically comfortable beds and proper drenching showers. A well equipped kitchen and a balcony with a double sun lounger. Proper modern TVs with English channels and good air conditioning.

The only negatives in the apartment were I) the single bedrooms were downstairs and the master was upstairs. This wasn't a problem for us as our children are slightly older but worth being aware of for families with younger children, ii) there were no wardrobes in the master bedroom so no facilities to hang up clothes and ii) our outside door lock broke once but was repaired quickly. As with a lot of similar holiday resorts style takes precedence over substance :)
On balance, the space and comfort of the apartment was a real highlight for us.

Hotel

The hotel is located off the main strip and as such is private, serene and comfortable. The pool is beautiful and there were plenty of towels and sun loungers. There's a drinks service at the pool which we took advantage of on many occasions! The staff are friendly and warm but not particularly quick or attentive. The food is good value for money but not overly brilliant. We had a couple of lunches there but no dinners as there were better restaurants in town.

We used the spa (very good) - although there are many many high end and cheap spa/massage places on the walk into town to try, as well.


Location

Seminyak itself was great with a lot of wonderful shops and affordable restaurants and the beach was an experience. Massive waves- great for surfing.

The town is an easy short 15 minute walk from the hotel - but beware as there are no pavements so take care (especially with small children) - although taxis are very cheap.

We spent a day at the WaterBom aqua park which was outstanding for the kids (if a bit scary for us!). Buy a reserved spot on one of the special catered sun beds - well worth the modest upgrade!

Overall, we really enjoyed our time there and would return again. We would also have no hesitation in recommending it.

As for the position of the single bed rooms, there are some other rooms available where single rooms are located in the first floor and master bedroom positioned down stairs and I am sure you can choose one of them when you’re coming back to Bali. Your feedback about wardrobe is highly appreciated and will be reported to the owner to be considered.
